Colin: 57, Retired
I have lived in Australia for most of my life and I enjoy travelling.

Then I travelled to Portugal for a holiday, and because I loved the people and the culture I then decided to move to the southern part for six years, and now I am back home, housesitting, seeing a bit of the country that I love and living the dream with my wife, but now am starting on my own.

I relish solitude, I love to relax and enjoy the peaceful life style– I’m ideal for housesitting.

Speaking of old, I am 57. Party days? Archived in the 80s and 90s.

I owned a house in Sydney & Portugal, so I know what it’s like to be a homeowner (and I also used Aussie Housesitters to find house sitters, so I am familiar with the anxiety of leaving your pets and property in the care of a ‘stranger’.

I’ve had pets all my life (I grew up in Liverpool NSW, then Harrington Park NSW where I loved my Maltese dog of 13 years) and since my arrival back to Australia I have been house sitting a variety of properties (Caringbah South NSW, Douglas Park NSW, Wyaga QLD, Upper Orara NSW & Currently lake Heights NSW).
The house sit in Wyaga was based on 9000 hector farm with a variety of animals (4 x dogs “Bossy, chubbs, rosie & twinks”, 8 x chickens, 1 x guinea pig “Jeffery”, 1 x horse “Sam”) and Over 200 cows and 300 sheep.
I’m a Justice of the peace, and had the Clearance for the National Police Register, this is your peace of mind that you can trust me as a person.
I also like gardening and will happily chat with your plants and encourage them to grow (or at least not die).

Based on my recent house-sitting experience (I can provide previous home owners details for a verbal reference) and would love to sit for you.

I have been a part of an Australian house swapping group which swaps homes all over the world since 2019 and have some reviews from these if you would like to see.

I'm very tidy, a clean freak and a non-smoker. I like early mornings and early nights.

Give me a shout if you need a reliable, experienced person to love your pets, plants and home while you are away.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Colin did a very good job, during our absence.
NARIM (Claremont Meadows NSW, Jan 2024 - 1 week)
Colin looked after our house and 2 dogs while we were on holiday. the house was clean, the dogs were settled and he was a good communicator. I would highly recommend Colin as a housesitter. Very seamless for us and peace of mind our home was well cared for and our pets loved.

Colin was a fabulous house sitter. The cats were well cared for and the house left immaculate!
FAYE (Dundas Valley NSW, Dec 2023 - 6 nights)
Lena and Colin came to care for our furbaby Cash whilst we were away visiting family overseas for 4 weeks. During that time Cash turned ONE and Lena went above and beyond to ensure that Cash was celebrating in style! He had a cake complete with candles, a toy and a party hat and Lena also sent us photos of the occasion which melted our hearts and went a long way towards us feeling better about not being able to be there with him. The house was left tidy and clean and the majority of our ... MORE

Colin and Lena looked after our home for 2 months while my partner and I went overseas on holiday. We met with both just a few days before our departure and provided orientation to our suburban home and garden and both were very attentive and presented well. On our return the house was in great shape and the lawns were mowed, even though NSW had experienced an extreme amount of rain and storms during our time away. I highly recommend them as housesitters.
VICKI (Lake Heights NSW, Oct 2023 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Lena and Colin were excellent house sitters. Communication was great. They took care of the house leaving it clean and tidy. We appreciated arriving home to a lovely meal prepared for us. Lena sent photos of Puss while we were away and we came home to a relaxed, contented cat. Highly recommended sitters.
AMANDA (Upper Orara NSW, Aug 2023 - 4 weeks)
Lena and Colin did a wonderful job of taking care of our house and dog Gizmo while we were away. Our pup is a little Moodle who is quite anxious, so having someone around for him when we're not there is quite important to us. Communication was really easy with Lena. She asked lots of questions, responded quite quickly to messages and kept us up to date with Gizmo's life while we were away, which my son loves as he missed him very much when we travel. Lena and Colin also popped round to meet Giz ... MORE
KAREN (Wynnum QLD, Jan 2023 - 6 nights)
Lena and Colin were outstanding house sitters. They had our home and our two elderly dogs for 4 months. They came one night early to observe our routine with them and loved and cared for them during their stay as we would. They have excellent communication skills and contacted us on a regular basis so we felt very comfortable with our dogs in their care. They maintained the yard to a high standard even though they experienced very high rainfall during their stay. They left the house ... MORE
JIM (Douglas Park NSW, Jun 2022 - 3 months 3 weeks)
Lena and Colin housesat our two Cavoodles and Siamese cat for two weeks in June 2022. They were outstanding and I would be happy to use them again and again . They left us homemade sausage rolls to eat when we arrived home!!! Communication was excellent. We have a cleaner who comes once per week and he said that they were nice people and the house was immaculate and really didn't need cleaning. They did many things that we did not expect them to do such as taking the sheets off the bed , ... MORE
