Testimonials

Steven

Sitter, Sydney

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.

Hi Malcolm - We’ve had a great run with happyhousesitters.com.au, and are so glad we decided to try housesitting while our own house is being built. We’ve had almost continuous housesits for the last 8 months, and met many great families, plants, cats, dogs and goldfish to look after! It’s been a great way to experience new neighborhoods and pets, plus we’ve saved heaps on renting that we can put towards our house when it’s complete. Thanks for running a professional website that really works for housesitting, we’ve already recommended several friends your way!

Hi, just wanted to let you know that following an advertisement on your website we have successfully secured and trialed our housesitters and are thrilled with the outcome.

I just wanted to let you know what a great site Happy House Sitters is. I was amazed by the number of responses I received to my ad. and very pleasantly surprised with the quality of them, too. I met some lovely people, and feel very happy with the choice of sitters I’ve made.
