Hi everyone!

My name is Sarah and I'm a friendly and reliable 29 year old professional, looking for a new temporary home and cute pets to play with and care for.

I work in philanthropy for a charity, love reading, cheese, animals, being active and camping. I'm originally from the country, and grew up with lots of animals and am keen to branch out from the apartment life and stay in different areas of Melbourne, whilst tapping into my of love animals with pet sitting. I’m moving out of my current place in May and will be looking for places to stay from then until the end of the year.

I've lived in shared living for the last 11 years and come from a big family, so I'm used to being considerate of other people and their spaces. I am one of those most organised, reliable, respectful and trustworthy people you will ever meet and I promise to apply this to any house sitting job. I’m also a non smoker.

Looking forward to meeting you and making your home and pets my temporary home and pets!

Melissa & Blair

  • East Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, West Lake Macquarie

We are a family of 3 who love the outdoors and are an animal friendly family. We love going to the beach, and walking or riding along nearby lakes and parks.

We are a young professional couple (one Aussie citizen & one Kiwi in the process of becoming an Aussie citizen), who had our first child in September 2018 - he is a healthy, happy & pretty calm-natured baby.

We are a clean and tidy family - no mess, no fuss. We are non-smokers and lead a generally happy and relaxed lifestyle. We will be leaving our beautiful home in Queensland and renting it out once we move, so we know all too well the feeling of leaving your place in the care of strangers. We are loyal and will only commit to an assignment we know we can fulfil and will be sure to treat your home with care, as if it were our own. If necessary we can provide character references on request.

We don't currently have any pets of our own, but we love both cats and dogs and have had experience with both. As our son is still quite young we would prefer to only look after smaller to medium sized dogs for safety reasons.

Our main reason for joining up is that we are looking to move to Newcastle / Lake Macquarie area in late June / early July 2019 and are keen to house sit for the first few months until we get settled with jobs and can apply for a rental property. We are happy to do a couple of assignments back to back if required during this time - but preferably nothing shorter than a week or two, to avoid too much disrupt travelling with a young child.

If you have an assignment any time from late June/ early July 2019 onwards in the Newcastle or Lake Macquarie region, please do get in touch with us as we'd love to hear from you!


  • NSW, Sunshine Coast, VIC, Perth N.W suburbs, Northern

We are a retired active non smoking couple who enjoy walking, swimming, fishing and traveling. Over the last 12 months we have had over a dozen house sits on hobby farms and in the suburbs and have thoroughly enjoyed our house sits and grown fond of our pets which have included dogs, cats, fish, ducks, chooks and sheep. We have also developed good relationships with home owners and have been invited to house sit a second time.
Being clean and tidy people, we will respect your home as if our own. We can provide references and police checks if required and our referees are happy to be contacted.
Look forward to our next house sit.

  • Melbourne, North Eastern, North Western

Hi I'm Tina,

I grew up in the foothills of the yarra valley surrounded by the array of wierd and wonderful pets my family had including peacocks, mini pigs, ducks, chickens, rabbits, ferrets and always dogs. I have lived out of home for the last ten years both overseas and interstate renting and have recently moved back home to save for future goals such as buying a house and a salon, I work for myself in Northcote and Melbourne as a hairdresser 4 days a week. I would love to house sit your pets for you so that I can be closer to work and always have furry friends to look after. I have house sitting and dog/cat sitting experience and would be happy to pass these reference contacts on to you upon request. I love to take the dogs out for walks and plays at the dog park and whatever exercise they require I will be happy to meet, my work hours vary from 7 to 10 hrs per day typically I will be home morning and late afternoon/evening - as a contractor I can be flexible if your pet requires a midday visit on working days I would be happy to discuss and arrange. It is important that I meet you and your pets prior to sitting - please feel free to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you

Warm regards

Katharina (Tina)

Liza & greg

  • Sydney

We are a quiet caring mature couple who both love animals and gardening, we are non smokers and non drinkers.
My husband Greg has a certificate of Horticulture and works doing gardening and cleaning and he has a green thumb with Veggie gardens, Lawns and espcially Roses.

I am a singing teacher and part time Musician, and have done cat-sitting for over 6 years in Sydney. I also worked at Animal Welfare as a volunteer a couple of days a week, helping bathe and walk the dogs and care for the cats. I have always loved animals and am always saving birds, possums and stray dogs in my area….even the odd Blue Tongue Lizard!!

We also look after and house sit neighbours houses and pets when they are away, and we are very aware of how animals can pine if not given a lot of attention and playtime. I also got into the Taronga Zoo volunteer program(out of 400 people) and learnt a lot about keeping animals stimulated and happy.

We have excellent references, and we also have been renting the same house for 20 years in Mosman and always had a great relationship with the owner and real estate, so we know how important it is to respect someone elses home and property.

We would also consider long term sitting, we are really looking forward to meeting new people, staying in your lovely places and mostly getting to know your well loved pets!!!


  • ACT, Sydney, Central Coast, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, S. Western

If you are looking for an experienced house sitter, someone energetic who will look after your home and pets with the love and respect they deserve, then pick me.

I am Reliable, Clean, Quiet and Considerate, a Non Smoker, and I am not a party goer, i’m a bit more of a tea totaller and I won’t hold parties in your home.

I am a great communicator and I can keep you up-to-date with the condition of your house and pets with an email report every few days while you’re away. I’m even willing to Facetime/Skype video conference with you over the internet so you can say hello to your pets if you’re missing them.

I have grown up having lots of pets of my own, I have owned cats and all types of dogs (Poodles, Corgies, Maltese) and a miniature dwarf rabbit, a guinea pig, a mouse, yabbies, budgies and a goldfish called chip. Due to my current Digital Nomadic lifestyle I am unable to own any pets of my own, so i have plenty of love and attention to give to your pets. I’m the sort of person who doesn’t mind letting your cats and small dogs sleep on my bed. I understand your pet is a valued family member.

In my travels I have done paid part-time work cleaning houses, I have done many house sits all along the East Coast of Australia and can supply many excellent references, I also have a current police check certificate to give you that extra peace of mind.

I am currently self-employed as a Website Designer and IT Support professional and I work over the Internet so you WILL need to have reasonable Internet/WIFI for me to use. As I am a Non Smoker I won’t be able to house sit for smokers sorry.

I have family in Portland, Geelong and Canberra and friends in Darwin.

David & Jo

  • Adelaide

Hi, we are a home-owning, non-smoking, couple in our early 50's with who love travelling, camping, sport and gardening. We find ourselves as empty nesters after raising our family and are keen for new adventures. We are both houseproud and would care for your home, pets and garden like they were our own. We are happy to provide references and a police check if required. Please call us at any time to discuss your needs.


  • ACT

I am a mature, female IT contractor working in Canberra since May 2015 and located in Canberra. I have a home in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs minded by my son and his girlfriend who love and adore our two rescue cats - a gorgeous ginger cat called Mr Boots and his partner in crime, (Princess) Cienna!

With employment in Canberra, I have found house-sitting to be a convenient way to relax, enjoy the company of a surrogate animal (cats preferred but will mind a dog, and now have added chickens!), look after a home while owners travel and provide a peaceful break from other temporary accommodation options. Another house-sitting website has references from completed housesits as well as an independent character reference (You are free to view via this link (

This website also has two Happy Housesitter references for your viewing:

My employment up in Canberra since 2015, in Federal government departments has required a baseline clearance which involved a police check however I have a long history of successful housesits and caring for dogs, cats and now I can add chickens to my repertoire. Many of my housesits now, are return requests or through referrals in my network.

All I need are simple instructions for your accommodation and contact points for managing any issues or if care is needed for any animals – you can be assured I will provide exemplary care and consideration to home and animals. Many of my housesit contacts are now friends and willingly contact me to return. On occasion, I have helped out by dropping in to feed animals for my housesit network if I am already committed to another housesit and cannot stay.

My personal qualities can be summarised as outgoing, fit, happy, cheerful, of an independent nature, considerate, capable, very clean, tidy, a non-smoker, a virtually non-drinker (occasional glass of wine, only) who loves animals and will care and pamper your cats! I’m a cat owner – I know how spoilt they can and should be! I have looked after dogs as well and happily take them out for a walk. I am respectful of your property and utilities. I do require off-street parking and preferably garaging if that is available.
Some of my housesits have said their animals have actually missed me! That’s a pretty good referral.

All I need from you is a key handover (haven’t lost a key yet!) and written instructions outlining any special requirements such as bin night, watering, alarm systems, etc. I don't need to use your car - but happy to start it up or drive around the block so the battery doesn't go flat.

Other than that, you do not need to worry about anything while you travel secure in the knowledge that property and animals will be looked after. I always stay in touch either brief SMS, WhatsApp or a longer email with cheery updates so you will always be able to contact me. I love to hear about owners’ travels and have received many photo updates and I’ll do the same.

Please feel free to contact me and chat. I would love to meet you and look after your animal/s and home! See if we can work something out.

Here's my suite of successful housesits:

  • Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hey there, I'm Lex! For most of the last three years I've been out at sea working for Sea Shepherd as a Bridge Officer and Ship Manager. I love marine animals and the ocean of course but I also love the furry land animals and have missed being around them while at sea.
I'm on a break from ship life for a little while to set up my Aerial Yoga Business in Geelong ( and am looking for house sitting jobs near Geelong, but particularly on the Surf Coast to be close to friends and family while I'm on land, and to have my own space and some gorgeous temporary pets to look after.
I'm also a permaculture enthusiast (so am happy to take care of the garden), am a non smoker, non-drinker and am very tidy. I have a working with children's check, can drive a boat, have a car and am a pretty decent person really. I'd look after your home, pets and garden like it was my own.
Basically this year I am trying to keep my overheads low by housesitting while my new business grows.
I can supply references on request. The beautiful pup in the photo is my sisters dog Phoenix who I looked after for 4 months when I house sat for them last year.
Happy to meet or chat on the phone before you decide!

Jamie & Charlotte

  • Sydney, North Coast, South Coast

We are a couple from England and have been here in Australia for the past 2 years. We have been doing house sitting on and off since we arrived and really enjoy getting to move around living in different areas and having the oportunity to look after pets as we are big animal lovers.

I am 30 and work as a project manager in Bondi Junction, and Charlotte is 31 and works as an EA so is able to work remotely, which is great for being able to be at home with pets that need more company or extra care..

We are a very clean, tidy and a respectable couple, and you should have no reason not to trust us in your home, and looking after your furry friends.

Please see our reviews on this website! We also have a facebook page which we used before we found out about happy house sitters where you will be able to see additional reviews and details -

We have had animals our whole lives, including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits and chickens, and have looked after various farm animals during our house sitting experiences. We are also very good in looking after old, injured and sick pets and happy to administer medication if its needed..

In addition to the pet care we are always happy looking after other parts of the house, for example, regularly watering plants, cutting the grass and we even like to give the house a good clean before we leave!

We would be more than happy to provide requests if you require :-)

Please give us a call, and we will always be happy to come and meet you! Jamie and Charlotte

  • Reduced Contact

Dear Homeowners,

We are Jerry and Claire, a couple of early retirees (61 and 58), who decided to sell up and leave home (before our grown up children decide to move back). We spend our time travelling, sightseeing and generally having a good time while we still have some energy and reasonably working body parts. I, (Claire) ran my own arts outlet for 19 years, and Jeremy was a Service manager and Mechanical Engineer for a shipbuilding firm in Hobart. Jerry is especially handy and can fix most things that go wrong in the house. He is good with pools, all things mechanical and he does love gardening and watering, I prefer watching him at work from the sun lounge...

We had our dog Polly for 17 years, and have also been cat owners, and can now add to our list of pet care, bearded dragons, blue tongued lizards and parrots, and a pony. We have had chooks for many years and now have extensive experience with all breeds of cats and dogs big and small, of every temperament. You can rest assured that we would care for your pets as well as you would yourself, and we try to keep to their normal routine with walks, feeding etc. We enjoy a quiet lifestyle, we are at home a lot of the time, and don't go out at night very often. My hobbies include painting, reading and writing. Jerry read a lot and is keen on any form of sports being a typical Australian.

We have been homeowners for 27 years, living just outside Hobart by the sea , we enjoy country life, city life, anywhere new is fun and exciting and we are comfortable in all environments.
Since we decided to change our life and travel more, we spend some of the year in Asia (and have settled on Hoi An in Vietnam, and half the year in Australia, where we return regularly. Both our children are now living in Melbourne, our favourite city, and housesitting allows us to visit wherever and whenever we like. We feel very at home wherever we aer and find it easy to fit in to any routine or lifestyle.

We would most definately maintain your home and garden as well as you would yourself, (maybe even better), and we always keep in contact with owners regarding their pets when they are away to allay any worries, you can have as much or as little contact as you wish. We know that your pets are part of your family and we give them a lot of affection, plenty of walks and the best care possible, so that you can holiday in the knowledge that everything is perfectly well cared for.

*We have over 28 excellent 5* references and police checks and have been housesitting for over four years

I am a 37 year old female who has had experience in house sitting for the past few months. Prior to this I owned my own home where I had a dog, cat, 2 house bunnies and 4 chickens. I am responsible, quiet, trustworthy, love animals and very clean! I work from home as a writer/communications coordinator 3-4 days per week so will be home a lot of the time, which means your pet(s) and house will be safe and kept company quite a bit!

Respectful & trustworthy animal lover.
Hi, my name is Yulia. I am a 57 year old female and I work from home on my internet business and enjoy a quiet and clean environment. I am non-smoker, tidy, respectful, reliable & trustworthy animal lover. I will look after your home & pet family as if it were my own! I enjoy jogging and exercising, so should you have a dog who needs walking I would be happy to bring him/her along :)
I have previously owned an amazing cat for over 20 years and who became an important part of the family, as well as a gorgeous golden retriever.
Household pets have always been an essential part of my life since I was a kid, and I miss having them around. I connect easily with animals of all kinds and understand the attention and care that they need. I dearly miss my previous pets and due to my current work and travel I am unable to have my own.
Overall, I would love to be considered as I believe in a healthy and clean lifestyle and would make a lovely sitter due to my relaxed and clean attitude. People say I am a highly organized person.
A number of references (by phone) and a Police Check are available on request.
Also,I make a great house sitter, as I am extremely tidy, lead a healthy lifestyle
I bring positivity, cleanliness and a range of references from previous house owners.

With love

  • Melbourne

Hi, What started in 2011 as a fun thing to do...staying in lovely homes with the company of dogs or cats during visits back to Melbourne.....has now become almost a full time adventure. I was spending many months each year in New York and returning to Melbourne for the Summer. Short term, decent accommodation is tricky so I decided to try Happy Housesitters. I love the company of animals so it seems a win-win situation. It has certainly proved to be just that. After several years I now have a wonderful list of regular home/pet sits and return year after year, often 2-4 times during the year, to the same homes. Consequently I have made terrific friend, both 2 and 4 legged. Occasionally I have spare days and am more than happy to receive new requests and come and meet you and your pets for an intro chat. I have been able to do this as I have been self-employed for many years as an Interior Decorator and an Artist. As long as I have my laptop and good Wifi available, I can work from 'home' thereby keeping company with the pets I mind almost 24/7. I'm in my late 50's, non-smoker, travel light and I'm known for my genuine affection for animals and my cleanliness and respect around the home. I do prefer to be close to inner-city as I have decided to use Uber rather than replace my SUV. If the home owners offer the use of their car during their absence, that is appreciated but not absolute. During Jan/Feb/March I will be in VIC, NSW and QLD so requests from these States are welcome during early 2019. (I am already booked from late April to early July in Melbourne). Please email me in the first instance to tell me about your pets, requirements and your home and if you care to provide your mobile I will call you in response. Please feel free to ask any questions.

Available to house and pet sit in Sydney's CBD, and all surrounding suburbs - East, West, North, South and anything in between!

Hello there! I'm Sheree - genuine, open, kind, happy and trustworthy if I had to describe myself in five words or less.... so you can rest assured knowing that your home and fur kids will be in the best of hands.

My lifestyle is quite simple, healthy and fuss-free. Fresh air, the beach, exercise, great food and sunshine are what keep me smiling and sane, while at the same time, I love seeing live bands and, as former Adelaide girl, discovering Sydney! No smoking or drugs, and the occasional drink at best...I'm a poster child for the clean living lifestyle :)

I work part time as an account manager for health food brands, and moonlight in a casual sales role managing merchandise in the entertainment industry. This gives me the freedom to work from home and promote products that I love, allows me to meet and create friendships with people from all walks of life, and offers a flexibility of lifestyle that I absolutely love!

I've been house-sitting on and off for the past five years, and a seasoned renter for over 20 - extremely self-sufficient, I come very well house-trained and I'm very much used to any issue that might come up! Clean and clutter-free, I'll take care of your home and your pets as if they were my very own.

I adore animals of all shapes, sizes and breeds :) I grew up in country South Australia where every animal crossed my path at one stage or another! From cats and dogs, rabbits and guinea pigs, to fish and turtles, and cows and name it I've lived with it or a looked after one or many! Even wallabies possums, wombats and snakes made an appearance - my family are active carers for injured or orphaned wildlife, so home was always a haven for them too.

I'll keep you updated as often as you'd like to be with photos and texts, just for your peace of mind that all's well back at home.

And as well as your all-important pet, your home will be taken care of too! Any plants that need watering, mail that needs collecting, scheduled chores that need doing - you name it, I'll manage it. I'm your one stop shop for all of this - because there's no better feeling than security and knowing you'll come home to not only a happy pet, but a clean, well-maintained, fully-functioning home!

Give me a call to arrange a time to get to know me! That face to face meet is a clincher, and while I don't doubt your pet will love me, you need to be comfortable having me take care of them and your home too! References are readily available should you need them also :)
