Testimonials

ALison

Sitter, Victoria

Hi Malcolm,

We recently had a wonderful 8 week house sit in South East Gippsland on a beautiful property where we looked after Emma - a lovely 8order Collie. Emma made friends with our 2 small dogs and we all enjoyed our daily walks together. Whilst we saved money by not paying rent the owners saved money by not putting Emma in a kennel for such a long time. The long house sit suited us as we wait for our new house to be built.

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!

I have returned from my journeying, and happily found everything in good order (and particular items, eg my repaired back gate, in even better order than it was when I left). My house sitter was kind enough also to deliver me to and pick me up from the airport. I would recommend your service to anyone who I thought likely to make use of it at some time.

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.
