Fran & Mike


  • QLD, SA, VIC

Introduction

We are a mature and friendly retired couple, professional,practical and resilient in new situations, and look forward to new homes and pets to care for. We are non smokers, tidy, active,gardeners, and keen to explore new communities. We have already enjoyed 5 house and pet sits both in Australia and overseas with another organisation in the last year, with excellent references. We appreciate Happy House Sitters because it it has such a range of Australia wide clients, and is easy to access.
We would take care of your home and pets, as we would our own, and keep them safe and happy until you return.

Why we want to house sit

House and pet sitting is appealing because of the built in adventure and novelty of such diverse opportunities. We have enjoyed much travel in Australia and overseas, ship, caravan, camping, coast, desert and bush, but would look forward to the interest of connecting with the everyday life in new communities. Many sits give insight to the places less travelled, rather than big tourism locations, and Mike is a keen historian where ever we are.
0ur creatures are an essential part of life, but the extra additions to the 'family', "step grand-dogs,cats..and one day hopefully, alpacas!!'', will have all the love and care we can give in the allocated time!

What we bring to the assignment / relevant experience

We have lived in city and country, in town houses and on acreages, and had donkeys, dogs, cats, chooks, and sheep! Our experience in education, country and city communities,gardening, house repairs,and dealing with the emergencies of life, makes us useful Sitters! Having a good sense of humor helps too.We have police checks,and house sitting references.
We currently have an old beagle/terrier x, Maggie May, a dear rescue dog, who, as we speak, is snuffling her way through seaweed and beach sand! We love our entertaining chooks, and their produce! Harry the Cat sadly left us after 12 years of slothful existence!
Do contact us if your place and pets seem like a good match!

  • Geelong, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hi everyone!

My name is Tamara. I'm a Primary School Teacher currently living and working in the Geelong area but originally from a small country town in Gippsland. My partner is currently working overseas and I am looking to travel with him towards the end of 2018, so minimising rental costs whilst also looking after families homes and pets seemed like a fantastic opportunity. I have house-sat for family and friends for varying durations and responsibilities over the last few years and really enjoyed it.

I am very neat and tidy and live a relatively quiet lifestyle. I'm a homebody and love cleaning and gardening so I'm more than happy to do any domestic/garden duties. I like to be outdoors as much as I can whether that's kayaking, bike riding or a nice stroll along the beach or Barwon River.
I have loved living in the Geelong area however I do miss the company of animals as my apartment/rental lifestyle hasn't permitted me to have my 2 dogs with me. I love all animals and have grown up with family pets of dogs, cats, turtles, ponies, rabbits and guinea pigs.

I am very respectful of other people's property and would love the opportunity to look after your beloved pets and home like it was my own. I've been told the houses I sit are often in better condition than before the families left! I would be more than happy to for a cuppa and check things out before any potential house sits and can provide any references needed.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you :)

SUZANNE


  • Canberra, Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. NW suburbs, Syd. Upper N Shore, Central Coast, Lower Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Upper Hunter Valley, Southern Highlands, Central West Slopes, Brisbane, South Eastern, TAS, WA

Hello Home Owners!

This year I am focusing on house-sitting around the Toowoomba area; some areas in Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast, and the Gold Coast . Petrol costs too much to go further afield, unfortunately.

Being a pensioner, and a retired teacher,I decided House-Sitting was my only way of having a break/ holiday from home. I have done several successful years of pet and home-sitting ..all with dogs, cats, birds, fish , etc., and even a pet python. I am police-checked a few times over [ for volunteer work], and hold a current Blue Card. I carry a pet first aid kit in my car.

I am a keen gardener, and cook..you may find a meal in your fridge or freezer on your return.I am used also to looking after pools.

I am an inveterate animal-lover, with a rural back-ground. I do not smoke , and have the occasional Guinness. I don't throw wild parties.. nor even sedate dinner-parties, as meagre pensions don't run to that!!!! I bring my own mobile larder, laptop, printer, mobile internet modem for my emails , and mobile phone with unlimited calls, so I do not need much,apart from some space in the fridge and the freezer, and access to wifi for my web searches. I have my own transport..a battered Falcon wagon with three dog restraints in the back.

Currently, I do not have any pets of my own, as my beloved Westie, Cailan, passed away last year.

References are available.

Pauline


  • QLD, VIC

Available: 2-17/04/18 & 26/05 onwards.
Pref Melbourne area. CBD, Northern & Eastern Suburbs, & Warragul. Will fly/drive anywhere else if costs covered. Pls enquire.

Responsible & trustworthy 33yr old non-smoker. Worldwide housesitting exp, many great references & repeat clientele.
I love having animals around me, especially adore cats and horses, and have a soft spot for well-behaved dogs. I am house-proud, & really enjoy every-day tasks of caring for a home as if it were my own. A scientist, ecologist then yacht-stewardess, I am not quite sure i have finished with travelling the world, but it sure is nice to come home for a while. Housesitting gives me the chance to work out 'where' and 'what' next, whilst saving a little bit for wherever the next adventure might take me. And as an animal lover, whilst my currently-nomadic life doesn't allow for my own pets, I take much pleasure in caring for your much-loved family pets, knowing I am providing them with consistency in their routine and a comfy lap and scritches at their merest hint of the request. I am honest, careful, with a high attention to detail, respectful of your wishes, and have a police check & many references.

*** BACKGROUND: I worked for a number of years as a scientist, saved and bought a townhouse in Melbourne, before deciding to see the world, pursuing my love of nature and animals by participating in various animal volunteer projects in Latin America for two years, then working as a yacht stewardess to supplement further travel throughout Europe. I have been lucky to housesit (and boatsit) caring for many different pets all throughout my travels, which in turn gave me with much-needed animal companionship and a place to care for as if it were my own.

***WHAT I DO: Now I am returning to Australia for a few months to visit my best friend and her new baby (in Warragul) and to exact some repairs upon my (currently tenanted) townhouse (in Glenroy), to work on writing a book, and to study some. I do not intend to work in this short time so I will have heaps of quality time to spend with your pets and be added security presence for your home. I enjoy my own time and quiet space, and am the sort of person who enjoys meditation and yoga, walking through forests, quiet reflection, writing, and cooking fresh and nourishing meals. I do not take drugs, and am a firm NON-smoker who appreciates a smoke-free environment, so please do let me know if you are an inside smoker, so we can determine if this might affect our mutual suitability.

*** CLEAN & TIDY: I am an extremely clean and tidy person, (force of habit from working in the yachting industry) so I appreciate the same in my surroundings. Any effort you make to clean and tidy your home before you go will be returned in-kind as I always leave a home better than how I found it, and with more joy in my heart for doing so when it is obvious you take pride in it too.

*** REGULAR UPDATES: I have used Happy Housesitters in the past when I had to leave my own cat and home, so I totally understand how you feel & will keep you updated via email, facebook, whatsapp or Skype, as frequently as you wish, whilst you are away. The health and happiness of your pet, security of your home, and your peace-of-mind are my top priorities.

*** GREAT REFERENCES: I can provide great references upon request (many of my sits have been overseas and by word-of-mouth, so references have not been sent through the happyhousesitter site, though I have plenty), and am happy to meet either in person if possible or via Skype, before you commit so you can see if I will be the perfect fit for you & your pets.

*** EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE: I have experience with cats, dogs, horses, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, fish, and birds.
I am experienced & comfortable with administration of medicines, and small-med farm tasks. Please contact to discuss any requirements.

*** HAPPY, HEALTHY PETS: Finally, I love all animals and seek first and foremost to keep them comfortable and happy, healthy and enjoying life. No request to this end is ever too big or too small.

We are experienced house & pet sitters who will take affectionate care of your home and pets. We are a non-smoking, reliable and mature couple with references. We will keep your house tidy and clean.

Trustworthy Non-Smoking Single Mature Female. Animal Loving. No Dependents.

Hi, I’m Sandra and for the past two years I have been living in Italy getting to know my parent's heritage. I have returned to Melbourne and am currently looking after homes & pets for my friends. I love the flexibility of being a house & pet sitter and hence have joined happyhousesitters.com.au based on a recommendation of a close friend.

I am 60 years old and a self funded retiree. In my professional life I was a Sales & Marketing executive working in senior management roles for Fairfax, Media Monitors, Iinet & Sensis. During that time I lived in Brisbane, Sydney & Canberra. For me, "home is where I am living".

I would describe myself as mature, responsible, good humoured (I always wake up with a smile) & easy going. I enjoy both quiet times at home relaxing, cooking and reading as well as being active & outdoors playing golf, cycling or just walking soaking in my surroundings.

I can guarantee you peace of mind while you are away and a tidy clean house and happy pet/s on your return.

Natalie & Jodie


  • Canberra, Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, Alice Springs, Darwin, Brisbane, South Eastern, Central Coast (Qld), Adelaide, Mid North, West Coast, TAS, VIC, WA

Hi there! We are an Aussie female couple. Nat is an ex-Australian Federal Police Agent and Jodie an Ex-Resort & Accommodation Manager.

Now aged in our late 40's we have been happily moving around the world as FULL-TIME PET & HOUSE SITTERS since early 2013.

Our references from over 40 home owners who we have loved sitting for, sometimes many times over during the last 5 years, are attached to this profile as individual documents from each year (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017). We can also provide phone and contact details for verbal references if you prefer.

A bit about us...

Natalie enjoyed a 13 year career in the Australian Federal Police, and Jodie has over 20 years experience in hotel and resort management, tourism and hospitality throughout Australia. We bring this knowledge, care and responsibility to your home.

To say we love house sitting is an understatement. As natural teachers, we have spent the last few years helping others get started as confident and caring house sitters through our online course, the 'House Sitting Academy' and our own private network of quality sitters.

This work does involve us needing reliable internet on any house sit we take on.

Since the majority of our time is spent working online, we would spend most of our days and nights at home with your pet/s.

For more information about us, including all our references and projects, please visit our personal site at www(dot)NatnJodie(dot)com.

We always love meeting with home owners through Skype video so we can make a personal connection with you and your pets, and feel into whether we are the perfect match for each other.


WHAT WE BRING TO YOU...
OUR BACKGROUNDS -
We are a vibrant & active couple who love animals & nature, connection and learning about new cultures and people. We bring our vitality to your pets and property, to spend quality time with your animals each day, giving them the same love & care we have given to our own pets since we were young, and to care for your property.

Nat's 13 year career in the Australian Federal Police (certificate available on request) was spent largely in VIP Protection looking after the Australian Prime Minister, overseas Heads of Government, and various royal families, and a further 6 months in East Timor serving with the United Nations.

Jodie has over 20 years tourism and hospitality experience, managing and maintaining various sized properties and Resorts all over Australia.

We have both grown up with many pets in our lives since very young (including a many varieties of dogs, birds, Diamond Pythons, and tropical & freshwater fish) so having pets and looking after them is second nature to us; In fact it is strange not to have pets in our lives. We now always choose house sits with pets where we can.


OUR PREVIOUS HOUSE SITTING EXPERIENCE -
Between us we have done over 40 house & pet sits over many years in various countries, which has taken us from extremely remote rural properties, to snow environments, tropical jungles, the inner city, suburban and smaller village life.

Along our journey we have also had to deal with extremes of climates and environments, from humid rainy season jungles, hurricane season in the Caribbean, sub-zero snow conditions in a number of Canadian & US winters, to living at altitude (3000+ meters), and are equally comfortable in all.

We have also been involved in the professional training of several dogs we have minded.

Due to Jodie's background, some of our assignments have included the management of in-house staff, B&B's and holiday Gites (self contained) for which we have been paid. Outside of such assignments however, we DO NOT charge for our house sitting, instead being massive advocates of the fair exchange aspect of house sitting and the ‘Sharing Economy’.


OUR OWN PROPERTY EXPERIENCE -
Over the years we have both owned our own homes as well as multiple investment properties between us.

As such we are well used to:
• Caring for and maintaining property
• Chlorine and salt water pools
• Jacuzzis
• Indoor and outdoor plants, gardens, lawns, greenhouses and vegetable gardens
• The responsibility for the general running of a household

We both appreciate the importance and value of owning a home, possessions and pets.


YOUR PRIVACY & SECURITY –
With our Federal Police & Resort Management backgrounds, security & privacy is of utmost importance for us, and we fully appreciate it is for you as a home owner providing your home & possessions for house sitting. You can be completely assured your home and assets will be completely secure and maintained with us. Natalie held an Australian ‘Top Secret’ security clearance for many years in her Federal Police VIP Protection work.


WHY DO WE LOVE HOUSE SITTING?
Simply put, this is our life & our livelihood!

Our internet based education business has enabled us to break free of any fixed location for work & allowed us to live a full-time 'digital nomadic' lifestyle since early 2013... a lifelong dream for both of us!

97% of our time has been spent house sitting since we left our previous fixed location of Dubai in 2013, and we have absolutely loved every minute of it. To us, experiencing back-to-back house sits with absolute ease since we started really shows us that we living our heartfelt purpose... and it certainly feels that way.

We envisage living this lifestyle for many years to come, especially since sharing house sitting experiences and tips to inspire others to experience it, has now become the focal point of our business itself.

House sitting is an incredible lifestyle for us, combining so many things we love. We absolutely adore the company of animals to break up our work life and enrich our experience, and enjoy constantly experiencing different locations & people of the world.

Ultimately, we find ourselves at this stage of our lives really desiring to not just travel, but live for periods in different locations around the world for our own enriching experiences and to also facilitate our business ventures.


Thankyou for taking the time to read our profile. We really look forward to connecting with you & seeing if we are the perfect match for each other.

Kindly
Nat & Jodie

I have done a few home and pet sits. I am on another house minding site too.
I am moving to the peninsula, hence I am enjoying house/pet sitting within bay locations along the Peninsula and getting a feel for the place. I find the lifestyle will be relaxing and quite meditative.

We are a professional couple in our 40’s and 30’s (no children) who have previously owned a home so know the value of having clean, considerate, reliable, non-smoking, trustworthy people to look after your property. We both have previous experience with house sitting and looking after pets and have grown up with both cats and dogs in the past. We both work full time in the city, at Melbourne University as a Senior Lecturer in Art and as a Graphic Designer (two days in the city, three days from home). Apart from work, we live a very quiet lifestyle and enjoy walking, running and playing tennis. We have just returned from travelling for three months in Europe in 2017, and would be available to house sit a property long or short term from February 2018. We are more than happy to meet with you first to allow you to make your decision as to who you want to look after your property and pets. Please feel free to call, text, or email us at any time to discuss what you may require.

Hi,

We are looking for house sits within 20kms of the Melbourne CBD. We love all animals however most of our experience is looking after dogs and cats. We love looking after pets and get enjoyment out of their happiness.

A little about Hannah and Ed:

We are very caring, responsible, tidy, clean, considerate, non-party, professionals in our mid-thirties. We work slightly different hours to one another which works out well as we are able to give pets a lot of attention and walks.

We have a 5 year old King Charles Cavalier (Alfie) who is the most chilled out dog in the world and our most precious possession. So we are also looking for house sits that have pets that Alfie is compatible with. Alfie is patient and is never agitated and would be no threat to your property in the slightest. Alfie is very low maintenance and would be happy living in a one bedroom apartment or a large house. Alfie is house trained and sleeps all day until we come home when he just wants to chill out and sit on one of our laps until we give him his regular daily walk. We regularly wash and comb Alfie who is also a regular visitor at the dog groomer.

Ed is a keen gardener so if you have outside areas that require maintenance that is not a problem.

We would love the opportunity to meet you and your pet/s and introduce you to Alfie.

Please contact us anytime if you have any questions or wish to discuss further. We are happy to provide references on request.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Joy
