Testimonials

Denise

Sitter, Brisbane

As I have found a delightful house sit to see me to the end of my stay in Brisbane I would like to freeze my account until I have need of it again. I have been very impressed with the service and would definitely recommend you to others. Having been involved with other agencies, yours has been the best. I especially like the way you notify sitters of houses in their nominated areas, this is very helpful and enables a sitter to get in early and apply. Many thanks.

Hello,

We became happy house sitters in April 2015. A friend we hadn't seen for many years was in our area at the time & told us what he was up to. He and his wife had been house sitting for 5 years, saving a large deposit for a home loan. They were currently house sitting nearby that's why we bumped into them.

We had already been signed up with another house sitting agency for more than 6 months, as we wanted to save money to do overseas volunteer work. Unfortunately we had failed to secure one house sit with that agency. So when our friend told us he was house sitting our first question was, "Who with?" Of course it was Happy House Sitters!

We joined almost straight away. Within 24 hours we were contacted by a home owner who had seen our profile & wanted to meet us to see if we would be suitable house & pet sitters in a few months time. The interview went well & we were given approval to house sit. In the meantime we had contacted another home owner whose house sitting dates fell before the first booking we already had. We were also successfully approved for that house sit as well.

The two bookings we had fell June-July & July-Sept with only a weekend to separate them which gave us time to go visit family & return for the second sit. Our experiences have only been favourable & enabled us to save for our trip. We are currently 6 months into our 9 month sojourn & it's been going exceptionally well.

We continue to receive the email updates from Happy House Sitters just in case we need to house sit again on our return.

Thank you to your team,

Naomi

We are just writing to say what a fantastic service you provide. We recently listed our home for a house sit and within a week had a number of responses. After interviewing a
few people we decided on one particular person to care for our home and animals while we were away. This was the first time that we have used a service like this and although we had some 'nerves' about leaving our home to a complete stranger; we followed the guidelines on your website and everything worked out really well.

Home owner, Brisbane

This wonderful service should be used by everyone leaving home on holidays - we've had separate 4 sitters - each different but fabulous, allowing our 'home-centric' dog to stay at home and be cared for by these pet loving sitters - WELL DONE "HAPPY HOUSE SITTERS" for bringing us together in this 'win/win' manner
