Experienced house/pet sitter. 38 yr old female nurse, currently looking to pet and house sit while studying psychology. My love of caring for animals began at an early age, growing up on my family's sheep farm in North East Victoria, where I cared for small & large, livestock, native and domesticated animals. I am single, a non-smoker and live a quiet life. I am caring, honest, reliable and respectful of the properties I house sit. Police check and references can be provided upon request. Please feel free to contact me should you have any pet or house sitting needs.


  • ACT, NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, TAS

Hello, I am a single, non smoking health professional with experience in caring for homes and much loved pets. I am very conscious of the need of keeping homes and pets safe and secure, and am aware of the trust that home owners place in house-carers.

As mentioned I have house sat for previous home owners and cared for all manner of dogs, cats, fish....and would be happy to provide references. I am a non smoker, lead a quiet life, am responsible and accountable. I would be happy to care for your home.

Hello. I am a retired senior federal public servant, mature (sadly!), married woman looking to do some house sitting. I live with my husband in our own home on the Gold Coast and we currently have a dog and a cat. I am an experienced "pet" person, having had all manor of animals in my home, from mice, birds, fish to cats and dogs. Our own dog (a kelpie) is currently 7 years old and a very crazy young thing, needing lots and lots of exercise. He was supposed to be an outside dog, but somehow that rule hasn't been fully applied! Our cat is almost 4 and is very much busy with chasing the dog around. I am able to garden, clean the pool, look after the house and pets. I am a non smoker. Though I plan to "house sit" usually by myself, there would be times when my husband would join me for a short break. We are both thoroughly house trained! We are planning to formally retire in a few years and I feel that house sitting in different places would help me to get a feel for various districts by living like a local, rather than as a tourist. I am most happy to look after pets and would look after your home well. I have now done many house sits (and many return sits) and can forward names and contact details for these house owners as references. I have a written personal character reference that I can send on to you as well. Hopefully all will tell you how wonderful I am. Oh, and also that I am honest, reliable and trustworthy. You can email me on anytime. My preference is for short breaks, up to three weeks or so, and around the ACT or anywhere in NSW. Thanks. Eeva


  • VIC

My name is Peta and I enjoy housesitting and looking after peoples pets while I save to buy a home of my own. I have many years of experience in house/pet minding as in the past I have filled this role in between stints overseas. I am kind, reliable and feel very strongly about caring for our environment. I keep healthy and fit and walk every morning. I work as a children's photographer and two days a week as a nanny for three hours. I mostly work on the computer at home, editing footage and updating my photo blog, except for the nanny work and a few 2hour photoshoots per week.

I am very competent and will be happy to take on any extra needs your property or pets may require. I will collect your mail and check on your neighbours!

I also do pet portraits.

Please feel welcome to send me a message or call me if you think I may be what you are looking for and we can arrange to meet. I am happy to travel to wherever is most convenient to you.

Catherine & Wayne

  • NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC

We are retired, caring and experienced sitters. We are quiet, non-smokers, reliable, trustworthy, very clean and tidy. We have references and national police clearances.
We love tranquility (out of the way acreage sitting positions), views (from suburban blocks as well) or proximity to beach or lake. We will definitely consider other locations as well.
We have our own very neat and well cared home north of Brisbane. We have owned and lovingly cared for various types of animals. We pride ourselves in looking after your house and fur babies as if they were our own! We are also keen gardeners and have looked after pools and acreage.
We have done a lot of home renovating. As such, we are very handy with tools and equipment and would be able to tackle most urgent repairs or ongoing maintenance required in your home or on acreage.
In her early twenties, Catherine worked as a housekeeper, before becoming a front office and housekeeping manager in 4 & 5 star hotels. As such, you can be guaranteed that your house will be left clean when you return.
Before retiring, we both worked for the public service in professional high clearance positions for 20 or so years. We travelled overseas extensively and would now like to primarily concentrate on seeing other parts of our beautiful country. We love discovering new surroundings and living as one of the locals. So, being able to do this, whilst caring for your home and pets as if they were our own, is the perfect solution!
Thank you for considering us.

Cherise & Stuart

  • Melbourne

We are a clean & tidy family of 4 - our daughters are 4 & 12 yrs old!
We currently live in Kununurra (far north Western Australia) on our own property where we have run our own Refrigeration & Air Conditioning business for 12 years!
We are relocating to Melbourne at the beginning of July due to my Mother's recent cancer diagnosis - she is starting treatment at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre on the 5th June 2019.
This has been a very quick & recent decision so we are hoping to care for someone's home to give us time to find our feet in Melbourne.
Our girls are good kids and well behaved, they love school & sport! My husband is a Refrigeration Mechanic and very practical and handy around the house :)
We have always had dogs in our family so we are used to caring for them and our girls have grown up with them.
We haven't house sat before but we would be very respectful that we are in someone else's home so would treat it like ours. We are renting our property out due to our move to Melbourne so we understand what it is like to entrust your home to someone else and hope they care for it as you do!


  • Perth N.W suburbs

I'm a professional in his late 30s working in the Community Services industry,

I'm a very clean & tidy person, and my lifestyle includes daily sport activities and being no smoker.
I have house-sitting experience and motivated to continue doing it whenever possible. Having owned a house myself, I am conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house maintained.

I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person and would take excellent care of your property. Refs. Available on request


  • SA

I am a 31 year old ex finance manager currently running my own new business venture.
I am able to work from anywhere I have an internet connection and love being around animals so thought that house sitting would be a suitable option for my current lifestyle.
I have been house sitting for the last 7 months now and am thoroughly enjoying it.

I offer a range of services including:

-Feeding as required
-3 Walks per week (where applicable)
-Home and garden maintained, any odd jobs required completed
-House left in clean and tidy order, all linen etc washed (so it's not the first thing you need to worry about on your return)
-Bins put out and mail brought in
-Unlimited love and attention to your pet

Any other services are available by negotiation.

I have had experience caring for animals multiple times in the past including 3 dogs (2 with special medical needs), chickens, cats frogs and fish.

I am ideally looking for house sitting opportunities of 3 weeks or more. I am always happy to catch up with owners prior to them making their decision about house sitters.
I have a police check available also.

Kyle & Natasha

  • Melbourne, North Eastern, North Western, Shepparton & Central North

We are a professional couple from Auckland, New Zealand. We are relocating to Melbourne in July as we came here on holiday and fell in love with the Melbourne way of life. We are an organised, friendly and outgoing couple and love exploring the outdoors.

We are animal lovers and spend a lot of our time fostering/ rehabilitating animals through the SPCA’s foster programme. This has been a big part of our life over the last few years and we find this incredibly rewarding.

As home owners outselves, we understand how scary the thought of having people in your house can be and can assure you we will treat your place with the upmost respect.

We are experienced housesitters and pet sitters and are happy to provide references on request.


  • Melbourne

You need not look any further, you have found a caring, trustworthy sitter to mind your home and precious, loved ones, including collecting the mail, taking out / bringing in bins and general house cleaning, as required. I keep an exceptionally clean and tidy, secure home, to ensure you peace of mind while you are away!

I am a 49 year old woman, and very experienced in pet / house sitting and tentatively mindful of home owners houses and precious pets in their absence! Please note that I am a non smoker and have no pets of my own.

Having grown up in a friendly pet loving home and having always been privileged to have pets close by, I have a genuine love and natural affiliation with animals and have responsibly cared for them in the past as I would my own. I regularly reassure owners of their pet's progress and house upkeep during their absence. Looking after your home / pets would be as much of a benefit to you / them as it would be to me.

Being locally based I am very familiar with the area and flexible with potential meeting times. Therefore, it would be easy for me to meet with you, at your convenience, to discuss your requirements further.

  • ACT, South Coast, Snowy MTS, Adelaide, Flurieu Peninsula, South East, West Coast, Melb. SE suburbs, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hello my name is Sara :) I am very happy to be here on Happy Housesitters and I have been enjoying many wonderful times looking after and caring for homes and pets since October 2017! This is such an enriching and enjoyable thing to do!

Laughter, well-being, and happiness are such important things in life. I love new experiences, and am aware that sometimes we cannot easily go on holidays or have time to ourselves when we have pets, gardens and homes to look after. It is a great pleasure, therefore, to help home and pet owners spend time away, safe in the knowledge that their home and pets are well cared for. House sitting also allows me to spend time writing, exploring, and being in a new environment.

House sitting and looking after pets is a wonderful focus, now that my 2 sons are young adults. House sitting also enables me to visit and spend time with them in Adelaide and Canberra, and this has been a wonderful blessing. I am so grateful that life has presented me with this wonderful path of expanding my work and life into new areas.

I first did some house sitting in 2008 and 2009, and found this to be a great experience. It is lovely to meet new home owners and to care for their home and pets. I have made some wonderful friends in this way! Pets bring such happiness and joy. I particularly love cats, and grew up with them. I also adored looking after my son’s cat, Arthur, when he left home to go travelling. I also enjoy caring for medium to larger dogs that are happy to chill out and relax while I’m writing. I also appreciate a well trained dog :) I enjoy walking, and the owner of a spaniel I cared for, was happy for him to travel with me in the car, so that we could find new places to walk. Pets are so special in our lives!

Owners have commented that their pets seem to gravitate towards me, and are happy to approach me, and often want to sit close to me - or on me! - soon after we are introduced :) The pets soon discover that - because I work in the healing arts, and with my background in massage therapies as well - I tend to massage them, rather than simply stroke them :) I can also arrange to provide my services as an animal communicator and whisperer, as per individual requirements.

For more than 20 years I have been providing guidance, intuitive counselling, healing, meditation, reflexology and more, to help clients navigate through the challenges that life can bring, so that they can find greater happiness, peace, comfort and well-being. House sitting enables me to be brought to locations where I’m able to offer my services in areas where these things may not usually be available. Also, I am able to offer phone consultations and remote healing. This all brings me such joy and many blessings, and the income enables me to continue to provide house and pet sitting, and to travel!

I am now in the creative process of writing, to share my experiences in books and online, and to bring new healing methods to a wider group of people. Longer house sits that are peaceful and situated in nature, or that offer beautiful gardens, really help this process, and are particularly attractive to me :)

I came to live in Australia in 1995 (from England), and life here has brought me many amazing experiences :) Since arriving, I now have 2 gorgeous adult sons, many friends, and family here and overseas. Melbourne and Adelaide were my home towns for many years, and since beginning house sitting, I have loved discovering the immense and diverse beauty of all the south eastern states, and southern Queensland.

I have a wealth of experience with looking after homes, gardens and pets of many different sizes, and in many different locations, from neighbourly suburbs, to remote areas, and in farming/wine growing communities. I am hands on when needed to be, and an experienced gardener, having built several from scratch, with local native as well as exotic plants. I truly love nature, animals, birds, and Earth, and enjoy the ways in which they help to nurture and heal mind, body and soul.

When I was married and my sons were little, we had a hobby farm for 8 years in the Adelaide Hills. I learnt so many wonderful new things during this time of my life! Shearing, bush care, slashing, weeding, fencing, planting veggies and fruit trees, watering sheep and plants - all this alongside caring for the home and family :) It was also great when we began to have WOOFERS (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) come to stay and help.

We sold the farm so that we could spend more time travelling. This included a lot of family time travelling and camping around Australia. We also visited family and friends in England and Europe. During this time I also travelled to Egypt extensively, where I then ran tours. More recently I have enjoyed discovering my own path, and being with myself. I was recently manager for 3 years of a very romantic bed and breakfast Cottage in Aldgate, in the Adelaide Hills. This enabled me to meet many new guests, and feel the joy of providing them with a wonderfully relaxing, luxurious, and welcoming retreat to celebrate special occasions. I also serviced the Cottage, ran online bookings and promotions, and sourced delicious local provisions.

Since then I have been enjoying this new amazing adventure, travelling and providing consultations where I go, with wonderful support and encouragement from my sons and friends. This journey brings me immense joy, and I feel truly blessed!


  • Melbourne


My name is Lisa, I am 44, and looking to house sit for at least the next 12 months. I currently live in Melbourne and have been for the last 10 years, I am originally from Sydney. I am a non smoker, I am conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house maintained. I have grown up with pets and taken care of cats and dogs and fish on other sits as well as my own pets. I believe that I would be able to take great care of yours. I am available for any length of house sitting and can provide both personal and professional references, as well as a police clearance. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your property.

I have been house sitting now for almost 7 months full-time but - however in the past have house sat whilst still in my own apartment.

I love taking them for walks and they are well loved by me.
I know lots of great parks and ovals and have friends who have pets so they can socialise together.

The dog on my profile is Gus, the one that belongs to the family I work with, he's a Spoodle - such a great dog.

I am from Melbourne and I have a recent police clearance (November 2018) and even Working with Children Check (2019)

I know this can be a difficult decision for you and I can provide references for you if needed and also meet with you.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.


Michelle & Derek

  • Cairns, Adelaide, Mid North, Spencer Gulf, S. Western

We are Derek and Michelle, and we now find ourselves with time on our hands after leaving our full time hectic professional jobs. We would love to help you by sitting your home and also with your pets if you have them, whilst you relax and enjoy some precious time away.
We are honest, trustworthy and value our integrity highly. We are reliable and punctual and enjoy being extremely organised. We have current Working with Children and Australian Federal Police checks, a five-star rating on Air BnB, and also excellent quarterly reviews from our experience of renting a property for the last 18 months.
You can be assured we will treat your home with respect and take every care of your home as we have owned our own home for the last 36 years whilst raising our own family, which includes maintaining the home, gardens and swimming pools, building from scratch as well as renovating, and pride ourselves on being clean and neat.
We delight in being in the great outdoors, and enjoy walking, cycling, hiking and mountain climbing to keep ourselves active, fit and healthy. We are also non-smokers and non-drinkers.
Our own family dog – Tic Tac a Border Collier/Kelpie has recently passed on and we miss him so much. We have tons of more love and cuddles to give to other furry friends, as the void in our hearts that Tic Tac has left is huge and needs filling. Also, we both have had dogs, cats, birds and chickens, whilst growing up, so have plenty of experience with senior pets as well as puppies both large and small breeds, and kittens, and we can assure you that our commitment to your precious family pets will be our first priority as well as confident they will become our new best friends.
We are transport independent with our own vehicle and small caravan. We have house, pet (and can also include the grandchildren) sat for family and friends, for long and short periods of time.
We are able to supply character and house sit references, are available for a chat and video call, and are extremely excited to meet you, and hopefully will be afforded the pleasure of living like a local as we get to know your neighbourhood and town whilst we care for your home/pets.

Hi! My name is Danielle, but most people call me Dani :)

Born and bred on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland and currently living in beautiful Melbourne. I'm 33 years old, I work in Finance part time and one of my biggest hobbies is pet sitting :)

Currently offering house and pet sitting services all over Melbourne!

I've been house and pet sitting for 7 years now and loved every moment of it. For me this is more of a lifestyle that allows me to quench my thirst to see new places and get my animal love fix whilst helping people feel comfortable and relaxed that their home and pets are in good hands while they're away.

I'm an animal and environment lover, with a massive soft spot for pooches and kitties. I am also more than capable of handling great big pooches! I'm short, but I'm strong and know how to handle the big kids! I'm very affectionate and patient with animals and I take great care in making sure they're well looked after. As an avid animals rights activist, I live a vegetarian lifestyle and I've worked with abused animals (Mostly cats and dogs as a foster parent for rescued abused animals) and understand special needs very well and am able to cater to those needs with understanding and knowledge. I am also able administer both oral and injection medicine.

I'm also capable of looking after a variety of farm and hobbie animals, ie: cows, chooks, ducks, sheep, goats, rodents, birds and reptiles as well as horses as I grew up on a cattle farm with my Grandparents and kept horses for leisure riding and my Grandparents kept generally around a dozen rescue racing greyhounds at any one time to re-home, as well as chickens, ducks, cows and goats.

I don't smoke, and very rarely drink the odd wine with a good bowl of pasta.

I'm not much of a party animal, nor do I go out very often. I'm more of a one on one kind of person who prefers dinner, relaxing music and wine with a close friend at home, rather then going out. I'm a bookworm, night-owl type, who prefers peace and quiet, over loud music and parties.

I treat other peoples homes like my own, with care and respect, and I have quite the green thumb for those who are concerned about their plants, having grown up on a farm you can imagine the size of our veggie patch!

I'm a complete neat and organisational freak, and try to minimise my environmental footprint where I can.

I've been told people feel very comfortable and relaxed around me, as I have a very authentic, open, accepting and compassionate personality. I'm a big believer in just treating people how you want to be treated and I know if I had a house sitter staying in my home, I'd want them to feel just as comfortable with me as I do with them.

I come with references from previous housemates and peoples homes and pets I've looked after. I also have a police check available and can provide copies of formal identification.

I live and work locally, so this isn't something I do because I have to, I just love animals and seeing different parts of Melbourne, there is always something amazing to discover here and earning the trust and love of pets makes me feel fuzzy on the inside!

As I have been house and pet sitting for quite a few years now, I have a handy checklist of important things to remember and go through so that you feel comfortable and reassured as a pet and home owner, that you're choosing the right person for the job. I am happy to provide the document, even if you feel I wouldn't suit and you just need a little guidance.

Feel free to email, text or call me at any time.

I look forward to speaking with you! :)


  • NSW

Hi my name is Paul. I know you want someone responsible to take care of your house, pets, plants, mail etc. I can provide you with that..
I am a single 50 plus, non smoker, semi retired person who works as a writer and part time limo driver. I am also a former American who is now an Australian permanent resident.
I can provide you with a police check ( I needed to provide extensive police checks , American and Australian to become a permanent resident ) and references.
I grew up with pets in my family. Dogs, cats, birds, fish, rabbits, turtles. I loved them all and realize that pets are part of the family. I have described my dog growing up as one of the finest beings I had ever had the privilege to know. My dad would say " that dog is a gentleman", which is a high compliment from him. I have taken care of friend's pets and houses as early as my teen years.
I would treat your pets with the respect and care they deserve knowing what it's like myself to have pets in your life this goes for your plants and house as well..
Thank you for considering me for your house sitting position.
sincerely, Paul Spatarella

Lisa & Simon

  • Melbourne

Hi there!

We're Lisa and Simon, both from Belgium and have been togetter for about 3 years. We're experienced travellers (both 30 years old), currently living and working around Melbourne.

Both responsible, down to earth people with a love for nature and animals. We grew up surrounded by cats, dogs, horses, birds, hamsters (even a pig at one point).

Living here in Melbourne, we noticed a lot of Aussies have pets and it made us realize how much we miss taking care of furry creatures!

Since we're looking for a place to stay, we'd love to combine it by looking after pets, cuddle and play while you're away.

This is our promise to you:

* We are genuine, honest and responsible

* We won't allow anyone on your property besides the two of us

* Although we love animals, we are NO party animals.

* Clean and tidy, we'll make sure you come back to a neat home and if needed we'll do some shopping so you can relax after a long travel journey.

* Both of us work at different times of the day so there will always be someone to make sure your house and pets are okay.

Our hobbies include: Fitness, Yoga, dicovering arts & culture, photography ans binging on Netflix (don't worry, we have our own account).

The past six months we've been staying in a house in Elwood, shared with another couple and our fantastic host.
But time has come to find ourselves a new place to stay so contact us if you're planning on going away!

We can send recommendations from previous stays upon request.

Kind regards,

Lisa & Simon

I am a tidy woman, will have my own car (not a camper van) and own my own apartment in Melbourne, so am responsible and trustworthy (according to the bank :-)) I also have a profile on Airbnb which you might like to visit:

Heading to Queensland I would be looking for work in the fitness and health industry. Have worked as a Yoga Instructor in Melbourne for over 12yrs and hope to find similar work in Queensland. Ideally the property would be close to either a yoga studio or fitness centre

Feel free to ask any questions

Leanne & Ellie

  • Wollongong & Illawarra

Hi, I live in Wagga Wagga and travel to the Wollongong Region quite often as my son and daughter live there. My son Callum is a student at UOW and my daughter Ellie is currently completing her Cert IV in Veterinary Nursing. They share a unit and I travel there quite often to visit them both and as I enjoy my own space will usually stay in the Holiday Park. I thought it would be a great way to save money, visit the kids, enjoy Wollongong and it’s surrounding areas and be able to look after someone’s home as if it were my own giving the home owner peace of mind while they are away. I work for the Dept of Defence, own my home here in Wagga Wagga and have two investment properties in Qld. My daughter Ellie has just relocated to Wollongong to complete her Veterinary Studies and is an avid animal lover. We are both very house proud, responsible, reliable, considerate non smoking people who would take excellent care of your property. We enjoy outdoor activities, musical theatre, going to the movies and spending time with our pets as we love animals. Ellie is looking for an alternative to renting and this seems a great way for her to conserve some money and provide a service as well. Ellie has been a pet and house sitter for people when she lived in Wagga Wagga and can provide references on request. Call us for a chat and you can decide for yourself.

Geraldine & Wayne

  • Hunter Valley, North Coast, Brisbane, South Eastern, Central Coast (Qld)

We are an active retired couple who love animals and travel. We recently lost our 20 year old cat, Elwood and are now wanting to combine petsitting and travel .
Our cats had health problems and Wayne is experienced in giving injections, giving liquid and tablet medication by mouth, and in monitoring blood sugar levels.
Over the years we have used petsitters to look after our cats and know exactly what is required. Wayne has also had pet dogs in the past and loves them just as much as cats.
We are clean, tidy, non-smokers and own our own home. We will take good care of your home and are also happy to look after your garden.
We have 3 recent pet sitting references for cats and dogs. Wayne has a recent Police Check and I can get one if required.


  • Sydney

I'm looking for a house sit as my long time relationship has recently changed but I am still under lease on my apartment! House sitting will enable me to get my bearings.
I am a non smoker who lives with two beautiful cats (one who is quite high maintenance! - My ex will remain looking after the,), I also grew up with cats, dogs and other small animals, so I am experienced in looking after pets.
Im fairly low key during the week as I work full time and study online - so i spend a lot of time doing my readings and uni work during the evening. I am neat and organised (and no need to lug all my stuff around, just enough clothes and essentials).


Love animals - dogs and cats and with much experience :)

Anna & Nathan

  • Melbourne

We are a young couple (25) who are looking for a preferably a long term house sit. We will look after your house as if it were our own, and we are more than happy to care for your pets. I love cats, Nath prefers dogs! I currently study full time and work 2 nights a week, My fiancé Nath runs his own welding/carpentry business and is usually home by dinner time. We try to have weekends off to spend time together. I love the great outdoors so am happy to walk animals as needed and Nath loves to watch tv so he will be happy to spend time with your beloved pets of a night. I will not be staying at the house over night but will be there during the days/evenings. Nath will be there every night as it will be his home for the duration of the house sit. We aren’t party people, we don’t smoke and we don’t drink very much- if at all! Occasionally we would like to invite our friends for dinner if allowed. We are trustworthy, fun loving and responsible adults. We are currently house sitting (privately) and are enjoying our time with the cat , We can arrange a police check if needed. We look forward to hearing from you & hopefully helping out! We would prefer long term house sits (e.g 2-6+ months) but can be flexible.

Hi we are a married couple in our mid 40's. My husband has two sons aged 13 and 14 who stay with us every fortnight for 2 nights, this sometimes changes and if a sit doesn't suit having children there we can adjust this arrangement. We are very house proud and like to live in a clean and fresh space. We have no pets but have been long term dog owners in the past, so we know they are a part of the family and would treat your pet as our own as we would your home. We have also looked after cats, birds and fish in the past.
We have both owned properties in the past and also rented so we are familiar with both sides. Greg is also a accomplished handy man and professional painter. I work from home and study, recently completing a degree in 2018. Greg works full time as a commercial painter, company work place health and safety officer and rope access technician. We are non smokers and enjoy travel, golf, yoga, blogging, movies and health and wellness. We will be returning to Australia at the end of July 2019 after 3 months in the states and are looking to house sit longer term if possible, so we can save for our next trip, experience living somewhere new and enjoy the company of fur babies. Look forward to working with you. References available upon request.
