Testimonials

Robyn

Sitter, Newcastle

I have only been house sitting for a short time but hope to continue on for some time to come. It suits my circumstances very much in that I can travel and then have time in comfortable surroundings and get to know a new area. I find Happy House Sitters website great.

Sitter, Melbourne

My wife and I recently spent 4 months in Melbourne visiting our daughter and family who live in Mordialloc. For the whole of that time,except for 2 weeks, we became very happy houseitters in homes near Frankston, at Beaumaris and close to Aspendale Beach, a short walk from our daughter's home. On one occasion we saw a very similar property advertised as a holiday let for $3,000 per week, albeiit in high season, the same time as ours. On the other two properties we were afforded the use of a vehicle, one of which was a Holden Executive, the other a Subaru Outback AWD.

Needless to say that we would not have been able to afford to stay as long as we did without housesitting and the independence that it gave us was valuable both to ourselves and our daughter and family.

We had planned an 11 day visit to Melbourne and had a friend organised to house sit for us but something came up a week before we were due to leave and she could no longer do it. I rang everyone I could think of but was getting nowhere. One of my friends mentioned happyhousesitters and even though I thought there wouldn’t be time I signed up and put an ad in. To my amazement we got a message a couple of hours later from a girl from Melbourne who was willing to fly to the Sunshine Coast, hire a car and housesit for us. She came up a day early so we could meet and turned out to be lovely. We had a great holiday confident that our home, dear old dog and chooks would be looked after. When we got home the house was filled with bunches of native flowers and everything was in perfect order. Thank you happyhousesitters for such a great service. I’ll certainly recommend it to our friends. Carin
