We signed up for Happy House-sitters not having used a web-based service before, however we found the site very user-friendly and efficient.  Our ad was responded to within an hour or so and the first person who replied, Robin, was so good we didn't bother interviewing anyone else.  Robin has been the best house-sitter we have ever had. She has sat for us several times now, lovingly caring for our two dogs, leaving our home and garden in tip top shape.  Thanks again for a great website and for introducing us to a capable and caring house-sitter whom we could not recommend highly enough.

I just want to say your company is a Godsend! After placing an add on your website I had a response within 3 hours and have now organised for a lovely lady to house and pet sit for us during our break.  We are so so happy with the lady who will be looking after our pets, I just wanted to say a huge thankyou to you for creating such a wonderful service which we certainly hope to use in the future!

What a wonderful site this is—I put in an ad in August last year for a house-sitter for June/July this year — and received a reply immediately from a lovely woman, Sheena. We met and clicked instantly. I also received many more replies but went with Sheena. The house was just as I left it, everything taken care of—especially my 18 year old cat who needed medicating twice a day — and Sheena was just wonderful. She emailed me regularly while I was overseas and nothing was a problem for her to do. We have become friends too. Thank you so much. I will certainly use your site again. Keep up the good work.

I'm sure you get this all the time but I am a new user to your website and really didn't know what to expect.  The whole process was really simple, we got an application within 24 hours and the couple who will be looking after our house seem amazing - I'll give you some feedback once the sit is over.


Thanks for providing a great service.  I'll be recommending you on facebook and would love a magnet (or 3) to give to my friends.  Please send it to:

We recently used Happy Housesitters to get in touch with people to look after our Corgi X and house in St Kilda, Victoria. I think I had about 8 emails from all sorts of lovely sounding people within a couple of hours of uploading my house details. I was so impressed because it meant I could book my holiday flights straight away and I wasn't waiting around to hear back from prospective sitters...I just, wanted to thank you for setting this business up because it meant we could go away on holidays without stressing about our dog in kennels or having to pay for them for a couple of weeks while we are away.

It’s now time for me to renew my registration for the third year. I originally joined Happy House Sitters when suggested by a friend after my divorce as a short term accommodation provider. However, I have found the experience so rewarding that I now consider myself a fulltime permanent house sitter. Travelling from house to house you get to meet interesting and different people and their pets. The site works perfectly and I find most of my clients retain my services for additional housesits. The flexibility of the site also allows me to travel up and down the east coast of Australia which fits in well with my contract type work. Whenever the website has required intervention your service has always been prompt and courteous. Thanks for your wonderful service and I look forward to our continued positive working relationship.

I have been a housesitter on and off for about 3 cumulative years as the result of engagements from your website.   
It has been a wonderful opportunity for me to not only save money, but also experience different areas in my geography, live in some beautiful homes and meet new friends and care for their lovely pets. I cannot speak too highly of the service you provide in giving the ability to match up homeowners and housesitters.

Happy House Sitters has been an opportunity of a lifetime! I have been house sitting permanently for nearly 6 months now, every house sit through this website, and have enjoyed every minute. The website is user friendly and sends me prompt updates, which is key when you need to arrange the next sit. I have developed friendships that will be long standing, both with the owners and their pets, and it wouldn't be possible without a service like this. Thank you :)

What I love is that if I call the house sitting phone number you get a real person on the phone and your details are updated there and then. wooo hoo, that is amazing in this day and age.

Will definately be renewing my registration in August and seriously thinking about extending my area to the whole of NSWYour Agency is fantastic, by far the better of all the agencies available., also very friendly and patient and helpful when I spoke several times on the phone last year after having my email address stolen along with many other people, because it was on the news. Your website is perfect for me and everything I find is very efficient. I have saved money already and intend to save a whole lot more. Funny things have happened and pets personalities are just amazing sometimes and I will email in the future of any funny 'happenings' with the housesittings I attend through your agency. Have a wonderful year and I will renew my registration along with new ones at the appropriate times.

We have been very pleased with the way that you operate your business.  The web site is easy to use and the ability to store communication with the home owners, is worthwhile.  It is certainly true that we have become friends with the home owners, and have received repeat business as a result.

At present we are doing a long term housesit.  The home is very well cared for, the owners have been very thoughtful and supplied everything we could possibly want for a very comfortable stay (we chose to use our own sheets and towels).  We have certainly saved money, all in all it has been a very positive experience and one we shall certainly be repeating.  We met with the owners three times prior to the sit commencing, the last time was purely for a social lunch as we had all become friendly over the previous visits.  As we will be travelling around Australia, we will be increasing our membership to take in more areas.
