How it works for Home Owners

Find a House Sitter Join our Home Owners for FREE

  1. Sign up for FREE and complete a short questionnaire to create your home owner ad.
  2. Browse our house sitters list and contact any whose profiles appeals to you and/or wait to be contacted by sitters who are available for your location and dates.
  3. Review your applicants and choose your sitter.

Although you are free to spend time searching through our sitters lists and contacting any that you feel might be suitable, it isn't really necessary because our sitters are notified when you submit your ad. Usually within hours those that are available for your location and dates will be contacting you to see if they may be suitable for the position.

Once you have submitted your ad you will receive an email with initial instructions and, around 24 hours later, a follow up email with house sitting best practice information including a link to download our free "Home Owners guide to House Sitting" in pdf format.

Benefits for Home Owners

  • Access capable, trustworthy house sitters

    House sitters are carefully screened and appointed by you and for many this is a regular activity, so they're motivated to do the best they can with an eye to future house sitting assignments, either for you or someone you recommend them to. This means you can count on a pool of motivated house sitters who are trustworthy and reliable.

  • Your pets stay comfortable in their own home

    Your pets will be happier and much more comfortable in their own home instead of a strange kennel. They can sleep and play in accustomed places with their own toys and familiar sights and smells. House sitters provide companionship and exercise by playing with them and walking them while you are away.

  • You can relax knowing all is well at home

    You have peace of mind and can relax and enjoy your holiday comfortable in the knowledge your pets are being well cared for and have regular close human contact. Your house sitter can water your plants, bring in the mail, keep the garden tidy and give your home a lived in look, providing security for your property and possessions by just being there.

  • You will save on pet boarding costs

    The expense of boarding out your pets when you are away can be prohibitive. With a house sitter your pets stay in the comfort of their own home at no cost to you.

What Home Owners are saying…

testimonial by Des and Carol

“ Just a short note to thank you for sourcing a person to housesit our home. We had engaged someone who was a disaster and eventually left after a couple of weeks. We were interstate at the time and contacted your site to source another. Well we hit the jackpot, our new sitter (male) was just finished in Sydney, and travelled to us in north Queensland to be here to take over, as he was an ex North Queenslander he knew the area. He looked after our house for over 4 months, gave us regular updates, handled all details in a very professional manner, caring for our gardens, hedge trimming, lawns , vegetable garden , fruit trees, ornamentals etc. He organised mail and obtained any necessary requirements on our behalf for weed control, a new hedge trimmer, fuel, garden waste disposal and so on. We have never met the man, but feel like we know him as a friend. He had to reluctantly leave for another job a few days before our return as he wanted to meet us to see if everything was ok. Well to say ok was to totally understate what awaited us, our house yard looked like a 5 star resort, beautifully mowed, edges trimmed, gardens totally weed free and looking great, our fruit trees had grown beautifully. Next was our house, talk about perfection, absolutely nothing was out of place, everything was spotless, fresh mats on the floors, windows all cleaned, kitchen appliances on doilies, fridge and pantry beautifully laid out, flowers strategically located, and to top it off a bottle of scotch to celebrate our homecoming. In the garage all equipment was cleaned and tidily laid out with the applicable accessories beside them, it was like a display in Bunnings. Having a person of this calibre made our trip so much more enjoyable, not having concerns as to what may await us on our return, as we had friends call in and assured us this man was spot on with everything he did and a hell of a nice guy as well. In our wildest dreams we could not envisage such professionalism as Zeb displayed, we hope to catch up with him soon to personally thank him. As he is about 1.5 hours away at present. Thanks again Des and Carol”
