Travelling to Australia? Need a bit of travel money? Why not consider becoming a babysitter with Australia's fastest growing babysitting website - Babysitters Now. It's a great place to get babysitting jobs or advertise your services as a Babysitter, Nanny, Au Pair or Mother's Help. Tell your friends!

I thought I would take this opportunity to share with you how much success I have had through the Kiwi House Sitters Site. I spend a great deal of time in Australia and my partner and business is there, however, my family friends and consulting business is in Auckland. When I know I am coming home, I look for a house sitting assignment. Having a home rather than a hotel room, or staying with friends or family is ideal. I can work, I have my independence and I get to visit and spend time with my friends, and most of all my parents who are now in their eighties. Apart from the occasional house sit during the year, I always look for and secure a great place to stay over the Christmas holidays. Taking care of their precious fur babies is a small price to pay for the freedom of having somewhere to call home, even if only for a short time. Thank you for the great service that you and the team provide. Michelle

*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
