Neil & Tracy

  • South Eastern, Mackay & Whitsundays, Cairns, Perth

We are semi retired couple who have had dogs since our own childhood and throughout our married life. Our daughter and family live in Watermans Bay, Perth and we would like the opportunity to spend more time in the WA surrounding area to build on our relationship with grandchildren and generally see more of Australia. We would be prepared to do sits both in the city surrounds and any outlying areas that would suit our lifestyle. We both walk daily so pets would be gaining plenty excercise.


  • Sydney, Perth

Hello, I'm a mature professional - I work 4 days a week as a counsellor/art therapist at a non-profit organisation. I am also studying part-time at uni.
I'm an active person - cycle and yoga and I don't smoke. I have rented for years and currently have a mortgage but am in the process of an amicable separation with my long-term partner so I am looking for house-sitting in this transition period before I move to a permanent home again. I can supply references and I absolutely LOVE animals and they seem to love me. I also love gardens and have a small green thumb.

Elizabeth & Tony

  • Brisbane, South Eastern

We have owned our own home for over 25 years. We know how to look after a home and take responsibility for leaving your home as great as you left it.

We are both animal lovers. We are active and walk every day, so walking dogs is easy.

We do not smoke and are quiet and tidy people.

We LOVE house sitting and have looked after active dogs, older dogs on medication, dogs who need lots of hugs and attention, fussy cats, cats who need to sleep with you on the bed, and birds.

My husband works full time and I work 15hrs per week, we love trips to the dog park and endless ball throwing.

  • Hobart, Rural/Regional Tas, Grampians, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd


  • ACT, Sydney, North Coast, South Coast, Hobart, Rural/Regional Tas

I'm a Sydney-based self-employed artist, working in the contemporary forms of site-specific video, performance and installation. I sometimes work as artist-in-residence with remote and regional communities. I have a home-base in Lane Cove, Sydney, which I've sublet.

I've been a house-sitter since 2001, when I returned from 2 years living overseas on a post-grad scholarship. House-sits have come to me from all over Australia via friends, colleagues, word-of-mouth, and house-sitting agencies such as Happy Housesitters. It suits me well to house-sit as I travel extensively for my art practice. My tools of trade are video camera, laptop, sound equipment and projector, which means I travel light and don't need a studio or art materials.

For the past 3 years I've been exploring Tasmania via a mixture of WWOOF'ing, house-sitting, camping, bushwalking - climbing mountains and breathing deeply in old growth forests as much as possible. In between house-sits I spend time with friends and family in Sydney and all over Australia.

I'm single, no children, don't smoke, drink very little, have my own car. I love to grow and cook good food and am a dab hand in the kitchen, having spent a few years as a professional cook. I love to have the sky as my roof as much as possible - 'chop wood, carry water' has great appeal to me. I'm physically active with bushwalking, swimming, gardening, Pilates, Tai Chi, and I sing in a choir wherever possible.

I'm good with farm animals and wildlife and I'm happy to become a domestic animal's human for the time they're in my care. I'm clean and tidy and always leave house, animals and garden well tended. I can attend to incoming mail under your instructions, send scans of anything requiring your attention, and even run an in-house internet trading business if you happen to have one, as does a Hobart home owner for whom I've house-sat a number of times.

In other words, I'm energetic, versatile, adaptable and a reasonably quick study. I like long house/land sits. I'm keen to experience eco-sensitive, energy-sustainable homes and properties, to learn from them, to make a sweat contribution to them and to foster optimism about the future.

Dayan & Jimmy

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore

Hello my name is Victoria, I am a Semi Retired 54 year old lady. I live in a Unit in Mosman and miss my home
that I lived in at Seaforth. All my darling pets are now in cat and dog heaven and we are not allowed pets in the unit where I live.

I have had a lot of experience in house sitting, lovely homes in Longueville, Seaforth, Mosman, Bellevue Hill, Rose Bay,
Point Piper and Kingsford. I am an extremely houseproud person, and keep an excellent household. I am a non smoker
and non drinker. Ex marathon runner, now a bushwalker/ medium runner.

I am fortunate that most animals like me and I feel the same about them. People have said " wow, minksie never comes to strangers and does that ? " I think I must have been a cat and a dog in past lives.

I am happy to give you any references upon request.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

  • Sunshine Coast

I have frequently house sat for friends and would like the opportunity to meet new friends and to take care of their animals , when they can't be around for many different reasons .i work on a casual basis on the Sunshine Coast , and would prefer to stay around this area . Non smoker . Own a Ragdoll cat named Oscar .

Annemaree & Chris

  • Sunshine Coast


We are a Mature Aged Couple & Professional House Sitters, Caretakers/Relief Managers of B&B, Boutique Resorts, & Small Businesses - within Sunshine Coast Region (SC). Negotiable & flexible, we prefer 6-12+Months, & will consider shorter & permanent assignments.
Note: Annemaree is at SC University, so we can only consider assignments outside SC during Semester Breaks, subject to availability.

Our aim is to assist Property & Business Owners in taking that much needed break, until we find our dream property &/or next adventure. Self Employed with 2 businesses we mostly work from home – one is mainly weekend events, the other is our Property Investment & Improvement Brokerage.

By way of our backgrounds... Chris is a Farmer’s Son & had various pets over the years. He’s ex-military, ex-corporate, & moved from Victoria to SC in 2004, & worked with numerous start-up & small businesses to develop their operations & sales team. Chris is also a great handyman who loves to be busy working or tinkering with hobbies.

I grew up in a large family in Brisbane suburbia with a variety of birds, chooks, & dogs, then travelled & lived abroad & in Sydney. Ex-corporate, I’ve coached, educated, & redeveloped start-up & small businesses, moved back to SC 10years ago, & developed an appreciation for mother-nature, quiet semi/rural living, & a minimalistic ‘low maintenance’ lifestyle.

We’ve lived on acreage & (ride-on) mowed it, dealt with pumps, tanks & septic systems, raised chickens & puppies, & lovingly cared for chooks, birds, dogs, cats, fish, cows, sheep, goats, horses, & donkeys! Unfortunately, I am allergic to cats, & whilst I’ve lived with them, fed them, & cleaned up after them, I need to keep a healthy distance. So providing your's is an outdoor adventurer, we'll get on just fine.

Between Chris & I, we can pretty much handle anything to do with property, business & pets. We are house & garden proud, pretty fit, non-smokers, enjoy a quiet life, healthy food, & the rare glass of wine - so you can rest assured, we will respect your home & neighbours as we would our own.
We have great character, business and housesitting references, and police clearances. Since May 2014 (when we sold our Mooloolah home), we've:

• Assisted a retired couple with their 32Acre/5 Star B&B in Bald Knob for 5.5Months until sold - caretaking when they ventured away;
• Been entrusted with a family's new Caloundra home & pool for the school holidays;
• Looked after a retired couple’s Sandstone Point home for 2Months while they toured Australia;
• Managed a 20Acre Landsborough Horse Property with 6Horses+1Cat for 3Months while the retired owners visited NZ family;
• Looked after a Palmwoods home +2Dachshunds+1Cat (twice) while the owners travelled interstate & abroad;
• Looked after a Beerwah home + a Cocker Spaniel for 4Months while the retired owners travelled Australia;
• Looked after a Pelican Waters home for 18Months while the Family took an extended Business/Family trip in Europe;
• Looked after a 4Acre Mapleton property + 2 (very cute) Papillion dogs+4Chooks+2Goldfish for 1Month while the owners travelled overseas;
• Managing a 10Acre Palmwoods property + 1BorderCollie+6Chooks+Orchard for 2.5Months while the Retired Owners travel overseas; and currently...
• Looking after a 3 Acre Ninderry property for the FIFO Owner.

Due to our high standards, diligence & flexibility - our services are held in high regard & demand – which we trust you will also appreciate! And our 'Standard' Professional House Sitting Services are FREE OF CHARGE in exchange for use of your home & utilities. 'Standard' is an Urban Lot to 1Acre Semi-Rural Residential Property with low-maintenance lawns, gardens, + (only) day-to-day maintenance. However, we are negotiable re looking after small-to-medium pets &/or farm animals, mowing acreage, landscaping, property renovation & maintenance; Caretaking/Relief Management of Medium-to-Large Semi/Rural properties, B&B’s, & Small Businesses. Just let us know your specific requirements, and we will advise any estimated fees applicable. As you may appreciate, any such fees for Pet/Farm Animal Sitting are 'nominal' to cover our extra time, expertise, & responsibility required. And of course we are happy to discuss, negotiate & confirm when we visit… 

Our Housesitting/Caretaking References & Business Profile are available on request, although we will bring these when we meet to discuss your assignment in detail. We prefer to meet at your property, so you can ask whatever questions you feel are relevant to us sitting for you, & we can get a better understanding of your property & requirements!

Let us know ASAP if our profile is of interest and you would like to explore us Housesitting, Caretaking or Relief Managing for you, either immediately or in the future.
We are looking forward to hearing from you soon…


Annemaree Cotterell & Chris Goldsworthy


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Upper N Shore

I am a mature father of two teenagers. I am separated and looking to live near to where they are living. I have owned a house for many years with a large garden and pool and a dog. The dog was shared care, and the pool and garden were almost all me. It was all very well cared for!

And I love animals and I love being outside, particularly close to water or trees :) My Facebook name is Rob Goodridge, Sydney Australia. There are some public posts which might be informative.

I keep the homes I have lived in neat, clean and tidy. And I'm a handyman and fix issues as they arise. If its not something I think I can fix I get a professional to do it, or report it to the owner of the property. I don't do bodge jobs.

References will be included when applying for a house sit.

The Police Check result contains confidential information, like my address, so I provide the Police Check once we've agreed on an assignment. It says "At the date of issue (01/09/2017) there are zero disclosable court outcomes recorded". And you can sight my driving license to confirm I am the person in the Police Check.

I am employed full time and may work from home if necessary for some of the time each week.

Oh, and I race a skiff sailing boat on Sydney Harbour. Yeehah!

Scott & Rebecca

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

We are a young 20/21 year old travelling couple from the U.K, exploring Australia; looking to live like locals. We are polite, tidy and clean people who intend to treat your home like our own and leave your house exactly the way you left it. We both love animals, with experience in owning dogs, cats, horses, geckos, fish, hamsters, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens ( Becky has also previously helped/grew up on farms in the UK so has experience in handling sheep and cows, also she has experience of hand raising lambs, puppies and kittens from birth). Becky's mum was a vet so she has picked up some tips and knowledge over the years in terms of animals health and wellbeing, so you can be sure your furry friends will be safe and loved whilst they are in our care.

We are an active couple who love going to the gym and going on long walks with our dog, Molly, back at home in England. I especially enjoy taking her along for bike rides through local forests, fields and parks.

We have both previously house and pet sitted in England so know what is expected of us in terms of house sitting. I have previously worked as a gardener for 4 years, along side my normal job, so am handy with a mower if required!

We both have had police checks (CRB) done in the U.K numerous times for previous employment working with children.

We are a non-smoking couple.

If you would like anymore information on us please do not hesitate to message us!

My husband, I and 2 daughters love house and pet sitting! We had a farm in New Zealand so have a great knowledge and experience of farm animals and all kinds of fur babies! We have owned many cats, dogs, guinea pigs, birds, fish... We all adore our animals. Our daughters are very academic and also love looking after animals as they have always been brought up with animals around them. Abigail is nearly 14 and Michaela is 10. They are very respectable of other peoples properties and always clean up after themselves! They are very quiet girls.

My husband is an engineer and I am a full time mum. We live in Brisbane but are moving to the Sunshine Coast in January 2018. We are looking for a house sit for January to the end of March 2018 near Buderim! Last year we moved over from New Zealand. We have lived in Adelaide and the UK and South Africa. We are also wanting to do a house / pet sit anywhere in Australia, Tasmania or New Zealand for December and the beginning of January 2018!

We are non smokers and do not drink. We have always owned our own homes. We love these opportunities of house sitting as it gives us time to look for work and properties while we are relocating, and gives us a "holiday from home" too. We are very appreciative of these opportunities too! We always clean the properties and treat as if they were our own. We treat the animals as if they were our own and they always become a part of our family too!

We do have GREAT references so please have a look. I can also give you a call anytime to have a chat and we can come and visit you is possible! We are very honest, loyal, professional and kind people so are always open to suggestions and opinions etc.

Thank you for your time!

Hallo, I'm Suzanne Mercier and I'm starting a new adventure in my life - housesitting. It combines my gypsy nature with my love of animals.

I'm a mature non-smoking and relatively healthy business person. On social occasions, I will drink a glass or two of wine. I love the movies, reading and long lazy lunches with friends.

I am a previous home owner so I know how important it is to take care of such a significant asset, second only to your beloved pets. I am house proud and would look after your property the way I looked after mine. The aesthetics of my environment are important to me so I am clean & tidy. I would totally respect your privacy.

I work in my own business and work from home around 50 percent of the time which means I would be even better company for your pets. I really love animals which means they will get lots of love and attention.

I have been an 'amateur' house sitter over the past 18 months for homes and pets (both dogs and cats) in Bowral (Abby), Seaforth (Cosmo), Manly (Rufus & Neo), Glebe (Miss Tiffy). I have references available if you'd like to check them out.

I do need wifi as some of my business is online.

As I'm just starting this adventure professionally, I'm not sure what else you need or want to know. Please feel free to contact me if you'd like to find out more Thanks and I'm hoping to meet you and your pets.

All the best


  • Melbourne

I'd love to House Sit to help people in looking after their pets in their familiar environment whilst saving for my first home.
I am 43, single, a non-partying type, don't smoke, a Full time student at Swinburne University, an online student as well and i'm also a freelance sound/post production engineer.
I am a good, kind, responsible person and very respectful of other people's property and their pets of course. I will treat them as though they were my own.
I have experience in house sitting and hope to help others. I have looked after both domestic (dogs and cats) and farm animals (horses and chickens) before.
I have references and a police check attached to my profile.
I would love to meet you and introduce myself, to give you a chance at getting to know me better as a house sitter and overall as a person, to help you decide for yourself of my suitability. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this. Look forward to meeting you!

Hello Home Owners

As a writer of children's books and songs I am free to go anywhere and make my home anywhere, as long as I have my computer and good internet access (I have my own wireless internet)
Writing, editing and research keeps me at home most days, so your pets will have plenty of company to keep them from fretting over your absence. I am an avid 'dog whisperer' fan and find those methods of interacting with dogs successful with dogs I know well, and also with dogs I have just met.

Since 2013 I have completed 20+ housesits all without a problem and am often asked to do repeat house sits. I have no complaints and have never received a complaint. I have many references which home owners were happy to provide.
I house sit up and down the NSW & Queensland coastline from Hervey Bay to Newcastle & Gosford. I plan to spend more time in Newcastle/Sydney from October 2016. I am planning a long term car trip to Airlie Beach/Cairns beginning June 2017 and am endeavouring to secure house sits along the way,
I am an ex-infants teacher and have worked as a carer to the disabled (certificate 111 )
I have a daughter and a granddaughter in Newcastle. They have a beautifully trained and extra loving male staffy, Nungo. I house and dog sit for my family several times a year when they go skiing or visit their favourite destination, Hamilton Island. Nungo keeps me company and we have a lovely time together.
I currently share a beautiful house in Murwillumbah, NSW with my sister and her staffy Uschi who is 8 months old. She arrived here at 7 weeks of age and is a delight to have in my life.

I have been a loving caring friend to my own dogs and cats. I have lived with animals in my own homes long term, and have looked after the pets of my friends and relatives.
In the last few years I have learned much about dog psychology, and find this knowledge useful when approaching and looking after other people's pets.
I had experienced house sitting and dog sitting for friends, so I thought I would put my experiences to good use and start house sitting professionally.
As a child we always had a cat. Always a female & therefore I have experienced the birth (and care) of many kittens.
As an adult I had two cats on separate occasions, Victoria and Adelaide. Victoria was baited and that was a horrific experience. The only thing that settled me was to go to the shelter to get another kitten. Adelaide approached us with her big meow.... no decision necessary. She lived a happy long life.

I have looked after many children, dogs, cats and the elderly in my career as a teacher, as a nanny, as personal carer and also as mother and grandmother. I have a great respect for life and all creatures and view life as a precious gift.
I understand the services I need to provide as a house sitter, and these fit easily into the way I live my daily life.
I have owned my own home and rented many others and have always left these homes as I found them or better.
My main goals in life are: to do no harm, add joy where possible and to enjoy myself through trying new ways of living.
That is why I feel house sitting is a great experience! Great for the home owner, who will receive peace of mind and excellent care for their home and pet/s. And great for my writing, providing new opportunities for me to meet more people and investigate 'the other side of the fence'.
Looking forward to meeting you, being of service and building a relationship of mutual trust.
Ps… please read my references, but contact details for references will be given only after we are close to agreeing on the house sit. I respect the privacy of all parties involved.


  • Sydney

Hi, I work 9 to 5 and have been housesitting for 2 years and love it. I live a quiet life and am very happy to care for your house and pets while you are away. More than happy to meet you to see if I'm suitable for house sit. I've sucessfully cared for cats, dogs, chooks, bunnys, birds, swimming pools and gardens. If your pet is happy and safe during the day, I will be available to tend to their needs every morning & night and weekends.
Hope to meet you soon
Cheers Chris


  • Sydney, Central Coast

I'm a 38yr old nature and animal lover. I've been a personal in-home aged carer for the past 9 years, and am currently completing my studies in Art Therapy and Counselling. I'm responsible, trustworthy and reliable, and can provide great references and a current police check.

I've been the carer of a beautiful adopted English Staffy for 10 years. I've also enjoyed looking after a wide range of animals, including cats, birds and rescued wildlife whilst house sitting .

I understand the special place pets hold in our lives, and the attention and love they require and deserve.
Any requirements re: exercise, dietary needs, or special care, I'm more than happy to maintain and provide, along with lots of affection and play.

I generally attend college 2 days a week, which gives me plenty of time to spend with your furry or feathered family members.

I'm active, down to earth, enjoy the outdoors, and would love to share regular walks with your dog(s).
I'm also capable of attending to any general household or garden tasks that need to be done (have previously worked on a farm and in a plant nursery for several years).

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have and to meet you in person.

I look forward to hearing from you :)


  • North Coast, Brisbane, South Eastern, Central, Central Coast (Qld), Western QLD

I am a mature single woman looking to house sit preferably in Queensland or Northern NSW. I am a non smoker, non drinker, no drugs, no partying (yes regarded as boring by some!) person who would love the chance to look after your property and animals while you are away. I do hold a Police Check dated 12 months ago now.

May not be able to handle very large dogs if they need to go for walks and they would prefer to walk me instead of the other way around. Quite capable though of throwing a ball etc (if they fetch ball) to give them plenty of exercise. But I would love to have the company of a dog or cat (I love cuddles).

Don't mind if I have to look after chooks (would love fresh eggs). Would really like your place if you have wild birds and animals coming near.

Wouldn't mind watering gardens, lawns etc. Can do basic weeding and could mow a lawn if not too big. If you have a big lawn I would look to paying someone (yes pay them myself) to do the mowing. After all I am saving on paying rent.

I would leave your home as clean and neat as you left it and look after it as if it were my own. I do sew and would like to do so during a house sit so I would need to set up my machine on a table if that is OK with you. I also require internet. Very happy to pay for my own mobile internet if required but I need you to be in an area where I can get reception. If you have wi-fi I am happy to reimburse you for my use.

If you are interested in having me as a house sitter please email me with as many details as you can. I would prefer an email telling me about your place before a phone call. It gives me time to take it all in before we speak in person. If at all possible I try to get to you at some point before the house sit for a chat. However, if you are too far away that may not always be possible in person but can be substituted by a chat on Skype.

I have house sat before however it was some years back now. I do have references which I can make available to you on request. I am now looking to house sit on a permanent basis with house sits following on from each other.

If you have read down this far I thank you very much and hopefully I suit your needs and I will hear from you soon


  • Sydney, Central Coast

Hope to chat to you soon.
