Australian house sitting, made simple

Hi there, and welcome to Mindahome. Please, make yourself at home!

Founded in 2008, we’re all about making it as simple as possible for home and pet owners to connect with reliable, experienced house sitters. Over the years, we’ve done exactly that – facilitating many thousands of positive house sitting experiences for our members across Australia. You can read their stories here.

Never ones to rest on our laurels, in October of 2016 we launched a brand new website influenced by our valued members. It’s widely recognised as the most user-friendly house sitting platform available, and has earned high google rankings for the main house sitting search phrases used today. These rankings mean more home owners and sitters are using Mindahome than ever before, giving you the best possible chance of finding the perfect sitter or home.

Today, our team of four dedicated people uphold our high standards of customer service and keep our active community happy by acting on their feedback. After all, it’s our members that make Mindahome so great.

Your friendly hosts

People often comment that Mindahome ‘just works’, and that’s because we’re real people who have been on both sides of the house sitting equation ourselves. We’re Mel and Sue, and we’ve been passionate house sitters (and home and pet owners) for many years. With Mindahome, we set out to deliver what we felt was missing from the Australian house sitting market: a simple, streamlined platform to bring likeminded people together that ‘just works.’

Our unique community

Of course, we can’t do it alone. In fact, Mindahome would be nothing without our wonderful members. We’re frequently amazed by the kindness, hospitality, and good humour shown by the home owners and sitters who form our community. It’s a pleasure and privilege to connect such a great group of people – and we hope you’ll join us!
