Victoria & Mealie


  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast

Mealie and I would love to offer our services, in taking care of your home, animals, and plants. We offer you peace of mind whilst you are away, taking excellent care of your home and offer companionship for your pets. We are great company as we love to stay home, cuddle and play as well as heading out for regular walks.
I've owned my own home so understand your requirements. I've also been on 'both sides of the fence' as a homeowner requiring a sitter and as a sitter, so know exactly what is required when caring for your home.
I am a single woman, non-smoker/drinker, '50-ish' and work as a figurative ceramist. I love peace and quiet, and Mealie is by my side 24/7. We have lived in the country for several years, but love travelling and exploring. We are house proud and would consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets, and garden, treating them as our own.
Being a responsible, reliable and considerate person, I would take excellent care of your property. Our availability is flexible with both personal and professional references available on request.

Bonita


  • Melbourne, Northern Vic, SW Vic

Hi! I'm a mature (39 y.o.) international student in my final year of doing a PhD. I have been in Australia for approximately 3 years. I'm originally from the Philippines. My PhD work is on education, and I have been a teacher for roughly 6 years.

I'm looking for a house to sit so I can do my writing whilst also saving financially. I look forward to this opportunity with happyhousesitters. I've housed sit for friends in the past, and I'm a very tidy person. I've also lived with housemates in the past 10 years, and I've never had any problems. I

I'm a disciplined, well-structured and responsible person. I try to do exercise at least 3x a week through running or riding my bicycle. I am organised, non-smoker, and a home-body. I would enjoy the occasional night outs and hanging out with friends over the weekend.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

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!

Gary & Vanessa


  • ACT, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, Rural/Regional NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, South Eastern, Central, Central Coast (Qld), Northern QLD, Western QLD, SA, WA

Gary: 51, Naturopath / Vanessa: 49, Writer / Alfred: 19 Student

Hi I am Gary of a family of three. We are very loving and family orientated. Over the decades, we have had many animals in our family, so far: dogs, cats, guinea pigs, a bird, chickens, fish and mice. We are still looking for a forever-home dog after our rescue-dog, Bella, died in 2017.

We believe in sustainability and alternative environmental options instead of industrial/chemical options - if we have to use a mainstream option we don't mind, but obviously environmental is our first choice. We love and accept all the people and culture that embodies our beautiful Earth. Our lives are simple and we aren't too radical when it comes to our social life. We do like meeting new people, however.

We have owned our home in the past and are conscious of maintenance and upkeep to ensure the house retains its value. We always leave the home in the way we found it. It would be an honour to care for your home, your pets and your garden. We take pride in our housekeeping.

We are new to House Sitting and are on our second assignment. Both assignments were personally offered to us. Please see our reference from the first assignment. Our current assignment is complete on 11 July – we can supply a reference when the homeowners return from being abroad. We are happy to discuss any issue regarding your needs. Please contact us.

My interests are fishing, gardening, spiritual matters, natural medicines, reading, walking, cooking and renovating. (Police clearance)

Vanessa's interests are arts and crafts, religion/mythology/spirituality/fairytales, Wisdom Crosswords and cryptograms, gardening, home preserves, board games/cards, bargain hunting, upcycling/recycling, music and family. (Police Clearance)

Alfred's interests are gaming, reading, creative writing, film, family movie night, entomology (insects) and neuroscience. He is on his Gap Year 2019.

Although we have no experience, we are willing to train regarding the care of farm animals and horses.

George


  • ACT, Flurieu Peninsula, South East, VIC


Hello, I am a retired primary teacher. I have a current police check and am experienced at house-minding. I think you will be reassured by my references; these I am happy to email to you. I am a non-smoker. I am used to dogs and cats and fully appreciate that you would want first class minding of your pets. Through this site, over the years, I have minded about 12 homes, some repeat visits. If I mind your home you can be assured that it will be properly cared for.

Lucy c
I have known Mr George Carlyle for many years. During that time I have called upon George to look after my house and garden during my trips interstate or overseas on a number of occasions. George has always been reliable, trustworthy and looked after my place/s very well. I have no hesitation in recommending him to others who need someone to fulfil other such roles, and would be happy to verify my experiences with him as house-sitter and garden carer.
I have also referred him to friends of mine (in Northcote and for a three-month stint in France where pets were cared for as well). All reported being very satisfied with George's involvement.

21 Showers Street
Preston, Vic 3072
To whom it may concern,
I have known George Carlyle for the past six years and felt confident to ask him to look after my property last year. My wife and I travelled overseas for three months and were keen to get someone in to look after the place. We asked George because of his responsible and sensible manner.
I have absolutely no hesitations in recommending George as a house /home sitter as he looked after our place brilliantly which made our trip all the more enjoyable.
Yours Sincerely
Marty F


To Whom it may concern.
I have known George Carlyle for about 30 years. In this time George has always been a person with high standards with a genuine concern for community. George has always shown great respect to any items that he owns or have been left in his care. I feel sure this would be equally reflected in any property that was placed in his possession. As the owner of a beachside property, I have no hesitation in allowing George full, and unlimited access whenever it is available. And have always found it to be left in excellent condition. I have absolutely no hesitation in putting my name forward as a reference in George’s search for house, and honestly believe that any landlord could not get a better tenant.

  • Hunter Valley, North Coast, Southern Highlands, Rural/Regional NSW, Brisbane, South Eastern

Retired from working in aged-care, now embracing house sitting full time to travel and explore Australia.
I enjoy the different environments, the many different pets and the people I meet.. I see this life style as an adventure, always interesting and exciting. I do enjoy exploring the area I stay in but prefer to spend my evenings in the home I am looking after.
I am an active, non-smoking, mature single female. I consider it a privilege to care for your pets, home and garden.
Have owned and loved cats, dogs (including two long haired Chihuahua which lived to the ripe old age of 18), fish, birds and even my daughter's mice.
I live a healthy life style, am reliable, honest, responsible, trustworthy and very tidy. I supply all my own consumables so that you are not inconvenienced.
I will enjoy looking after your pets and home while you are away and ensure that they will be taken care of as you would expect. With love and kindness. To be trusted with someones home and pets is a privilege.. I stick to the routine that the animals are used to and so enjoy their company.
If I can be of assistance, I would love to hear from you.

We have now travelled throughout Victoria, from early December through To the end of January, and have made our way through Adelaide and have now finally made it to the west and beyond !!

We are both extremely reliable and down to earth. We are impeccable when it comes to looking after other peoples properties and fur babies as we understand how extremely important this is. We come very experienced as we have been sitting properties and pets over the last few years . We have downloaded references for your perusal and can provide police checks where required.

We are not party people, like to lead a simple life. I have come from a city life and Phil bought up on a family farm, so we feel that we have everything covered when it comes to looking after your house/property and your animals. We are experienced in looking after a variety of animals, dogs, cats, birds, sheep, chickens, ducks, calves, you name it we have looked after it !! We are used to and are happy to follow any specific instructions that you have, afterall its your home and your animals in our care. Both Phil and I own our own homes, so know the importance of looking after others properties and belongings. We have no pets ourselves presently, so excited to meet yours. We are both non-smokers and only occasional drinkers, we both have grown up families and between us have 6 grandchildren. City girl smarts and country boy old fashioned know how - we are looking forward to meeting you !! :)

John & Noella & Noella


  • Bris. Southern suburbs

We are a mature, responsible, professional couple in our early/mid 60s who have been homeowners in Brisbane for the past 40 years. During that time we have built, lived in, loved and looked after three houses - plus dogs, cats and birds - mostly in the Mansfield/Carindale area.

We are currently overseas on leave and will be returning to Australia mid February 2019 and will continue our 'time out' until later in the year. Housesitting assignments from February onwards would be very helpful for us as we settle back into life in Brisbane.

We are the sort of people who, wherever we go to visit, rent or have a holiday, make sure we leave the house/apartment in as clean or cleaner condition. We have no 'official' Housesitting experience though we have looked after houses for friends from time to time, and always been complimented on the pristine state we left the houses in!.

We can supply references on request and hold active Blue Cards, so have been through the necessary police checks.

We'd love to hear from you and are confident that your house and pets will be very well looked after.

Kind regards,

John & Noella.

Leanne


  • NSW

Hi guys! This is me...................
* REFERENCES - National Police Clearance, References from real estate agents who have sold my previous homes, character references, homeowner references - all available on request.
* MY PERSONAL LIFE
--------------------------
I am a professional, full-time housesitter. I DO NOT charge a fee. I love travelllng, meeting people & making lots of furry friends! This is not a holiday for me, but my dream lifestyle, & I take my housesitting responsibilities very seriously. I was "born to housesit" & I absolutely love it!
I am non-denominational in religion but lead a Christian lifestyle, with good family values. I do not smoke or drink, do not have parties. I am vegan, very health-focused, love exercise & being outdoors in nature. I am home a lot, so can spend lots of time with your animals, maintain property security & attend to all houseshold / gardening chores. I rarely go out at night.
I am very capable, independent, healthy, happy, friendly, reliable & extremely organised. I have always owned my own home & always had pets. I enjoy a "simple life" - much happier with less material things & more quality time spent with family/friends, exercising, eating well, being in nature, being with animals. I love meeting people from "all walks of life" - especially people from different races, cultures, age groups, religions & lifestyles.
I spent many years working full-time in a NSW government department doing legal work. I spent two years working as a part-time cleaner in a high-security bank. I spent the last two years studying.
* ANIMALS
-----------
I absolutely adore all animals & believe they are a big part of any family - you can be assured that I will treat them very well & include them in all family activities. I can do grooming, give medication, am confident with disabled or elderly pets. I can handle big dogs who pull on the lead. I can walk dogs twice per day - to the beach / park / around the neighbourhood. I will give all animals lots of company, play love & attention - whatever they need to keep them happy & sticking to their routine. I can send you daily photos / texts / emails of your pets playing / walking etc, to show you they are being well cared for & to give you peace of mind. I carry an RSPCA Pet First Aid Guide, to give immediate first aid to pets if needed. I have a stationwagon with a pet/cargo barrier to take your doggies on outings if they like. I have cared for rescue pets, dogs, cats, chooks, rabbits, cows, goats, bees, fish, wild birds, caged birds, alpacas, a pony & horses - all of which I have photos.

* YOUR HOME
-----------
I am very house-proud & keep a spotless home. Your home & surrounds will be immaculate upon your return. I never wear shoes in the house, never put feet on furniture, always use coasters/tablecloths. I never eat on the lounge or walk around the house with food. My family has over 100 acres on NSW Mid North Coast - so I have experience with ride-on mowers & regular mowers. I can do whatever you need me to - collect mail, forward important mail to you, take phone messages, be home for tradesmen, put bins out, start car engine so battery doesn't go flat, water plants, gardening. weeding.
I will not use your car, phone or computer - I have my own. I will not use your microwave or dishwasher - I just don't like them. I very rarely use a dryer.
Prior to your return, I leave a Gift Basket as a Thankyou Gift. I can do some basic grocery shopping if you like.
I would never have guests over without your permission.

* I BRING MY OWN
---------
pillows, pillowcases, rice cooker, blender, water filter, kitchen tidy bags, tablecloth, household items (dishwashing liquid, handwash, toiletries), I just need sheets, towels & blankets please.

* AGREEMENT
---------
I am happy to sign an agreement.

* CHILDREN
--------
I have 2 wonderful children - aged 12 & 10. They are extremely well-behaved, mature, very clean & tidy, do not break things, do not run around the house, do not wet the bed, are very respectful of other people's property & absolutely adore all animals! They are very gentle & kind to animals, do not play rough & do not hurt them in any way. They have been brought up as vegan with Buddhist values & understand the importance of treating all living creatures as equals. All of my previous homeowners will testify that my children are no problem at all - they are an asset - with all the love & attention they will give to your pets. You will see for yourself how well-behaved they are. It also means that we can walk three dogs at a time, not just one! They have their own references & their photos are attached.
* BEDDING - we only need a double & single bed / or fold out bed please. And we are minimalist, which means we don't need a lot of living space.
Thankyou & look forward to hearing from you soon!
Leanne.

Stephen


  • Melbourne

I am 30 years old and have dedicated the last 9 years of my life to youth work, the last 6 of which have been in a remote community in QLD. I am now volunteering my time to support an artist from that community to pursue a management offer, needing to be based in Melbourne to do so. With my limited finances and love of animals house sitting has been the perfect option for me!
I have a strong passion for my work, music, animals, travel and meeting new people.
I have a lot of experience in house sitting with cats, dogs, chickens, sheep, horses, cows and even an alpaca. I am very neat and tidy and a non-smoker. I am also very happy to provide references upon request.

Elke


  • Sydney

Hi,

I’m Elke, I consider myself a guardian angel for your pets. I come in, fall in love, care for your pets as if they were my own and then leave again when I am no longer needed. Thinking of myself as a guardian angel makes it so much easier to leave at the end of my house sit.

I have a lot of experience house sitting and pet minding. I housesit full time because I am saving up again for my own home after selling everything I own and travelling overseas for 3 years. Because I have been such a gypsy, I have not been able to have a pet of my own, so I have found house sitting the perfect antidote. I get to stay in people's homes and treat their beloved pets and homes as my own for a few weeks, keeping them safe and happy while their owner is off gallivanting themselves.

I work part time in Sydney, and once in a while do the odd acting gig, so have the perfect hours to be able to go for a morning and evening walk with your pooch, or spend time cuddling on the couch with the cat.

At the end of 2016, I moved back to Sydney after spending a year living on the Sunshine Coast. In both locations I have house sat for a mix of different people in various property types including homes with gardens, pools and spas, and I have looked after many lovely pets including the old, the young, ones who require medication, cats, dogs, miniature ponies, birds, chickens and gold fish. All the animals were well and happy when their owners came home from their travels.

I don't smoke and lead a fairly quiet life and very much look forward to spending some down time with your pet.

I understand how important it is to have someone you trust looking after your home and pet so I am happy to provide references and I have a current police check.

I would love to meet you and your pet to see if we are a good fit for each other.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Elke

Sonya


  • Sunshine Coast

I am a 50 year old single non smoking woman, wanting an alternative to renting. As my sons are now independent I have the opportunity to house sit. I am overseas currently until May 27. I grew up with pets and had much loved guinea pigs for about 4 years. I know how much I loved my pets and know how precious they are to us, so will take special care of your fur babies. I am a clean, responsible, caring and respectful person and will take great care of your property for you. I haven’t any house sitting references yet but can supply a personal reference if necessary. I am happy to house sit for any length of time.

ELENA


  • VIC

I am a very friendly and responsible person who likes to travel and explore places. Sitting someone's house is a chance to do this in a very pleasant way. I consider myself an ideal house and pet sitter. A mature, educated and reliable person who understands the worries and needs of house/pet owner leaving their precious in other people's hands. It is a delicate and sometimes scary experience! I do not smoke (never touched a cigarette in my life), do not drink, lead a healthy lifestyle (gym, yoga, jogging, nutrition), my family is on the same page. We are very peaceful people who have a decent life and enjoy it as much as we can.
We had several experiences sitting other people's properties and pets (cats and dogs). It was amazing for us and the house owners, too, as they found the place immaculately clean and their pets happy and safe.If needed, I am happy to provide a couple of references, too.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Jess loves caring for vegetable patches and we both love all pets – we’ve looked after cats, dogs, hamsters, fish, birds, lizards and even snakes.

We've owned several properties and know the responsibilities involved. You can rest assured we’ll keep your home secure and occupied, so you have the peace of mind to enjoy your holiday.

So whether it's your pets that need caring for, your lawns that need mowing, your pool that needs maintaining or your garden that needs watering, we'd love to help out!

WHAT HOME OWNERS SAY:

Very responsible, mature and easy going house sitters. Their response and management of an unexpected plumbing issue was handled very well, and we were able to get back to enjoying our holiday sooner as a result. Highly recommended.

Kate and Zac


Jess and Simon took excellent care of our home and groodle pup while we were on holiday. We loved getting pictures and updates about her, it made us miss her a little less. We've kept in touch since their house sit and Jess has even baby sat for us.

Chris and Mel


When we got back our home was immaculate, our dog was happy and the plants were healthy. We found Jess and Simon extremely reliable and trustworthy.
