Sacha


  • Melbourne

Hello, I am Sacha, living in Ashburton with my partner. Unfortunatly my partner is allergic to dogs and cats and I am a huge animal lover (had dogs and cats all my life). For this reason and for some lovely private time to do preparations for my work projects, I love to housesit and take care of your furry ones. I am happy to look after your dogs and/or cats whilst you are away and guard your home for you. I value a clean environment and very keen to maintain the space I live or stay, clean and tidy. I have a quiet lifestyle, enjoy walks in the park and lovely latte's. Happy to meet you and very much open to a chat.

  • Perth

I am a mature female who lives a very quiet lifestyle and I am hoping to care for your house/pets/garden. I have been housesitting full-time for approx 18months and because I've enjoyed it so much I've decided to continue with it for the tie being.

A little bit about me - I have travelled and lived abroad in many countries and homes, always maintaining and respecting them in the same manner that I would love and respect my own home.

I work from home and I live a very healthy lifestyle, enjoying yoga, swimming, art, outdoors, cooking, documentaries/movies, museum etc. I very much love animals and enjoy the nature, so am more than happy to maintain your gardens. I have plenty experience house sitting and have references available at your request. I also have a Federal Police Clearance.

At the moment I am currently on a long term house sit (6 months). I prefer long term house sits (ideally 2/3 months +). I look forward to hearing from you and hope we can help each other out, thanks.

THEIR ENDORSEMENT OF YOU:
Gaylin house sat for us for three weeks and looked after our elderly cat and our home. Gaylin sent us messages and pictures of our cat during our holiday which we really appreciated as we were missing our boy terribly. We arrived home to a sparkly clean house and a very happy cat, he was even in her room looking for her this morning so that tells me they had a good thing going on. We also had superb yellow roses in a vase and a special one sitting in our daughters room, which she loved. Thanks so much Gaylin we really appreciate the time you spent here and the lovely clean house on our return.

  • South Eastern, SA, Northern Vic, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

We are a retired couple in our early 60's on an adventure trip around Australia in our 4WD and camper trailer. We would like to stop over in homes along the way to expand our experiences in different areas. We are experienced Housesitters.

We have recently successfully completed three housesits in Victoria, one in Sydney and two in our home area of the Sunshine Coast. Please check our references.

We own our own home which we love and maintain meticulously, ask any of our friends and neighbours! We love animals having owned our own pets in the past. We also enjoy gardening, and have a good knowledge of pool care and maintenance, owning one ourselves.

We are strict non smokers, lead a healthy lifestyle and are honest genuine people.

We are currently back on the Sunshine Coast and available here until the end of November.

Our family live on South Coast NSW and Bairnsdale Vic and our plan is to eventually settle in the Bairnsdale area so would be very interested in finding house sits there. We are both non smokers, hubby enjoys the occasional beer, plays social bowls, loves yarn especially with retired truck drivers.. working with machinery. We both love animals and enjoy caring for them, we have had our own fur pets, but when our little dog had to be put to sleep we decided .. no more until we settled down.. I enjoy gardening, movies, reading and have done volunteer work ( not so much, since we been travelling) scrapbooking, card making. walking. We are both very tidy and particular how we care for our own and other peoples possessions. We are happy to try most chores on farm and Ron usually is the worker, I do what I can to support him.

  • Melbourne

Hi there,

I've been house sitting for friends, colleagues and their acquaintances for many years. I'm currently house sitting in Coburg until mid-November and caring for a golden-retriever x poodle. Prior to this, I was in Carnegie and Bonbeach caring for other pampered pooches!

I'm very experienced in caring for dogs and cats. Currently working from home. Extensive references available.

Alison


  • Sydney

I am a housesitter in Sydney/inner city suburbs. Thanks for looking at my profile!

I enjoy the freedom and discovery of living in different inner city suburbs and would love the opportunity to care for your house and precious pets and plants.

Single, independent and flexible, I am a friendly, quiet and mature professional woman in my early fifties. No pets or children, just a car and some suitcases.

I am self employed and my part-time work allows me to spend more time in your home during the afternoons. This is useful to keep the dogs company, walk them, tend the plants and to be seen to be around during the day. I will also be in most evenings so your house will not appear to be unoccupied.

Responsible, dependable and reliable, I have experience with and enjoy sharing affection with small animals. Growing up my family always had dogs so I have a special affinity with dogs. I like cats too and have happily looked after rabbits, guinea pigs, parrots and fed visiting hungry magpies and lorikeets who expect the owners to be there waiting for them to arrive each day. I'll happily talk to/tend your plants and will carefully follow your watering instructions (especially for those delicate orchids).

I am a non-smoker, clean and very respectful of others, their homes, privacy and belongings. I am not a party person and will spend a good deal of my time caring for and maintaining your property in your absence.

Ideally I am looking for long-term housesitting opportunities but short-term ones are equally welcome.

Again, ideally, I would like to stay close to the Balmain area where I am currently housesitting but would also welcome housesits elsewhere. I have taught tai chi in Balmain for the last 4 years (www.empowertaichi.com) in different venues including the PYC and St Andrew's church, and am known, liked and trusted by the local community.

My previous housesits have all been in the Balmain/Rozelle area. The owners specifically wanted their houses to be occupied and well-maintained during their absence with the post brought in every day and the plants watered as necessary.

I would be happy to provide further references - professional and personal. My current and clean Working With Children Check is a more thorough police check of national criminal histories from CrimTrac.

Looking forward to hearing from you and to discussing your needs and how I can best look after your house so you can really relax and enjoy your time away knowing everything is being well taken care of.

Alison

Background and Professional Experience:
Born in the UK, I lived (and housesat) for 2 years in Bermuda, spent 16 years in France - ah oui je parle le francais couramment - arrived downunder in 2002 and now am a lucky Australian citizen. My qualifications include a BA Hons and current First Aid Certificate. As a qualified Integrated Body Therapist I am a member of ANTA (Australian Natural Therapies Association) and a Tai Chi instructor accredited with NCAS (National Coaching Association Scheme) and TAA (Tai Chi Association of Australia). For the past 2 years I have been a part-time carer for an elderly lady aged 85 who suffers from vascular dementia/Alzheimer's - a role that I have found very rewarding.

Claire & Jeremy


  • Hobart, Rural/Regional Tas

Dear Homeowners,

We are Jerry and Claire, a couple in our late fifties, 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 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. 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 20 excellent 5* references and police checks and have been housesitting for over four years

Kylie


  • Sydney

Hey Guys!

My name is Kylie, I am 34 years old and work as a personal trainer in the city.

I am currently living in Many Vale in my parents apartment who spend 6 months in the UK summer and 6 months in the Sydney summer. They are moving over for the summer between November - April so I am looking for long term house sitting (between 1 - 6 months) between these months while they are here.

I did the same thing last year and spent my time between two apartments in Manly Vale and Manly and will be more than happy to get references for you if you wish.

I love animals and plants and happy to look after either or both! In fact I would prefer it - both make me very happy.

I am an OCD neat freak who is very house proud, and would look after your place as if it was my own - and by that I mean impeccable cleaning! I live a pretty quiet life working early mornings from 6am with spare time during the day and afternoons and spend my spare time cooking, going for walks and sleeping so definitely not a party girl!

I would be open to anything on the Northern Beaches, Eastern Suburbs or Greater Sydney during Nov - April for a minimum of 1 month (ideally longer). I don't have any pets though would love to look after them! (the dogs in my picture are my boyfriends who lives out west - hence being open to location).

If you want to get to know me a bit better then the easiest way is on social media so feel free to check out my Instagram page which gives a pretty true representation of me: kylielgilbert.

Look forward to hearing from you :)

Simon & Deborah


  • NSW, Brisbane, South Eastern, VIC

Hi there!

We are really looking forward to house and pet-sitting for you as we travel in Australia.

We are a married professional couple from Vancouver, Canada and are busy traveling in Australia while on parental leave as we just had our first baby. As of mid-November 2017, he is now 5 months old.

Back home, we live in an apartment 10 minutes from the dog beach, where we love to take our amazing dog, Spur, for a run, swim and play (he is a 1-year old 70 pound Heinz variety!).

We are enjoying housesitting during our travels and meeting the people we housesit for. We recently finished a housesit on a farm in Queensland taking care of a large dog, 3 cows, 3 chickens, and lots of sheep, and really enjoyed it! We are currently in NSW looking after a whole crew of pets, and are looking forward to finding our new housesit as we travel south.

We are pet-owners ourselves and animal-lovers, and we both grew up around dogs, cats, mice, fish, rodents, horses, etc. We also have previous house-sitting experience, and would look after your home and pets as if they were our own. We are non-smokers and keep our place clean and tidy.

We would love the opportunity to housesit for you, and to look after your pets and plants. In a message, we can email you references, and police checks if we haven't already. Feel free to call us at 0468 471 133 with any questions.

Sincerely,
Simon, Deborah and baby Caden

Kate


  • NSW

Hi, I'm a mature, neat and tidy non-smoker looking for a house and/or pets to care for.

I love all animals, well ...as I've just said I'm very honest, I don't like cockroaches! I am new to this website but not at all new to house sitting. Personal references from past house sits are readily available. I also have applied for a police check and I have been told it will take a week to be mailed out to me. I will provide it when it arrives.

I work for a public broadcaster and I have flexible start and finishing times so I am able to accommodate any regular dog walking & feeding routines.

I love gardening (even weeding) and would be happy to take good care of your garden and do any odd jobs. I am also learning about bee-keeping as I think I'd love to do that when I retire from my salaried job.

I have my own car so flexible re location to public transport.

Lisa


  • TAS

Hello, my name is Lisa. I am a 33 year old, non-smoker who has been living in South-West Victoria for almost 3 years.

I have recently enrolled in a design course at RMIT. Commencing on 20 August, the course will run for a number of weeks. I hope to find a place to call home near RMIT so that I can walk to and from classes, or hop on a tram.

I currently live on a small hobby farm where I love feeding the animals, searching for chook eggs and tending to the veggie patch. I would look after and care for your pets and your home as my own.

Please do get in touch if you would like to ask me any questions. Very best wishes, Lisa

Nicola & Jay Jay


  • NSW

We are a young working couple that met at University 6 years ago, and have been working in London since we left education and started working life. Nicola is a happy and kindhearted individual working as an account manager at Oracle in London. Before that she worked as a cleaner and office manger so is well equipped to take care of any home. She has grown up with dogs and loves taking care of her home, animals and her family. Jay Jay is a hard working, loving individual that loves nature, animals and his family. He has grown up with both cats and dogs and is experienced looking after plants and gardens - from previous work experience. We are looking to move to Australia permanently and want to get a good feel for how other happy-home-owners do things.

Nicola:
"I've grown up around animals, dogs in particular, and believe that the key to a happy house hold and happy pet is to treat them as you'd like to be treated. It really is hard to leave your beloved pets in the hands of others, but our promise is to treat them as our own and look after your home as though it were ours. We are a very positive, caring couple and spend most of our weekends thinking about where the dogs would like to be taken this time rather than getting the food shop done."

References on request if needed.

Thank you for reading, feel free to message with any questions - we are excited to share this experience with you.

Daniel


  • ACT, TAS, VIC

Hi there, my name is Daniel and I am a software engineer seeking a home to take care of so I can work on a personal venture.

I am a very warm, respectful person who enjoys being surrounded by nature. I love sharing company with animals (especially the affectionate ones) and have volunteered around the world at animal rescue centers. Animals are usually better friends than humans :)

I have not taken care of farm animals before however I am not afraid of large animals (as long as they are not feisty) and I welcome adding basic tasks to my daily routine.

Most of the time I will be at your home working to materialise my idea however I exercise daily so will be out of the house between 1-2 hours a day. I have a completely mobile workstation (including internet) however internet in the home would be favourable to keep my 4G data costs down.

I am a very clean person and as such will NOT be able to mind a house that is very untidy/unhygienic. A clean space is needed for my mind to be clear and productive. I am conscious of the cost of bills and will respect your home as my own just as anybody should.

Police check and references are attainable on request. I have contracted for companies such as Crown Casino who have very strict policies around whom they hire.

My professional profile can be viewed at https://www.linkedin.com/in/dangauci.

Preferences:
- 1+ pets (preferably doggy but happy with any species of friend)
- Clean home
- Internet
- Empty desk to set up workstation
- Access and/or view of nature
- Access to gym or running track
- Ability to return to my family over Christmas for 1 or 2 days (24-26th December)
- 2 week and over period of sitting

I am currently overseas until the 25th November but we can chat on Viber or WhatsApp :)

Lynda


  • TAS, VIC, WA

***Availability: mid November - 2 December 2017; 24 Jan 2018 onwards*** Preferred area: Melbourne and surrounds, Victoria.

Hello! I'm a responsible and house proud non-smoker with an array of house-sits under my belt - from inner city flats to a Tasmanian farmhouse. I am house sitting long term to save for my own home, and have had over three years of house sits almost back-to-back. Many house sits have come through the Happy House Sitters website.

I enjoy a bit of gardening and love the company of animals. I’ve looked after dogs, cats, birds, chickens and even sheep as part of my house-sits. You can be assured that your home will be kept clean and tidy. As a freelance writer and marketer, I often work from home and I think this adds an advantage of “lived-in security” to a property, not to mention extra time with the pets!

A police check and excellent references are available on request.

Ideally I’m after long term house-sits (1 month +) but will definitely consider shorter term options.

Sarah


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Southern suburbs, Syd. SW suburbs

I am very well housetrained having rented for over 7 years, am responsible, very active, tidy, quiet, non-smoker, non-partier and animal lover.

Hi Dog/Cat and Garden Lovers.

I am a IT professional who recently returned from a sabbatical and will be spending the next 6 months or so working on contracts in Sydney. Non Smoker, clean, Yoga Teacher, who until recently had two dogs whom I walked daily. Animals are amazing and time spent with them is good for the soul. My family has always had cat's and dog's and whether big or small, we always seem to get along. On weekends I can be found at North Curl Curl dog park with my dog's of which I now share custody. They are one Pugalier (see photo) and one old lady Jack Russel whom I have had for 13 years. Previous pets include: Boxers, Staffies and recently trained my brothers Turkish Kangal (big dog). I have never looked after the following pets: snakes, rodents or horses.

Avid gardener and handyman, let me know what you need fixed while you are away. I like to keep busy with physical work, so mowing, painting, building, repairs and many other skills are what I bring to the table.

If you would allow me to take care of your house and love ones, I promised to do my very best to love and care for plants and animals alike.

Erik & Annette


  • Darwin, WA

Annette and I left Sydney 8 years ago and worked as volunteer Rangers in the N.T. and assistant teachers in an aboriginal school. Then we house-sat twice in Swan Hill and while Annette completed a Masters in Medical Science looked after 3 properties in Tasmania. We looked after 4 properties on Kangaroo Island minding a vineyard/farm (finch, dog, 73 cattle, 1 poddy-calf; we love animals) until March 2015. We then moved to Western Australia where we have cared for another 7 places, 6 of them with farm or domestic animals, taking us through until early-May 2018.
Non-smokers, we are active, love the outdoors, bushwalk, jog, participate in flora & fauna surveys, swim but we also enjoy reading, theatre and cinema.
We have police clearances and recent references, which we are only too happy to supply.
The house that we still own in Sydney is rented out and, as owners, we have an awareness of the property situation from that perspective. We can guarantee that that any house, animal and/or grounds that we mind will be looked after with the utmost attention, respect and care. Thank you.

Anne & Peter

Peter is a bit of a dab hand when things need fixing.
We will forward mail, keep in touch with
you via email, phone, Skype etc, in your absence, and keep up to date with your home, sending
regular updates and photos.

We are fastidious house keepers, and like to keep everything spic and span.

Both Peter and I enjoy using the internet, reading and researching and are adventurers by nature.
We are very social, enjoy meeting new people, walking, and the gym.
We neither smoke, nor drink.

If you would like further info, you are very welcome to contact us.

Look forward to hearing from you, about your potential housesit.

Cheers

Georgia


  • Melbourne

Hello there!

My name is Georgia and I'm a single, 43 year old events florist with experience in house sitting and pet minding.
I really love the variety and change of scene that house sitting allows.
I live very cleanly, am a non smoker, mature and reliable. I'm an active but quiet person and having owned my own house I understand the importance of trust and respect.
I am passionate about caring for animals and plants, both of which have been a source of income for me for a long time.
I previously owned a pet supplies business for which gave me a lot of experience with all kinds of animals, especially dogs... Training, agility and massage!
And as a florist on and off for the past 20 years, plants and gardens are certainly something I get a lot of enjoyment from.

The winter months are my down season for work which means I am home a lot and more than able to give plenty of attention and love to your pets whilst looking after your home.

I have references and police check available.

Thank you and really hope I can help you out!

Cheers,
Georgia
