I have the time to devote to your pets to keep them happy and healthy while you are away and make sure your home is secure ,clean and tidy.

WORK FROM HOME, EXPERIENCED SITTER - more than 50 house sits, can travel interstate..

Hello, I'm a responsible and house proud non-smoker saving for my own home. I have over 3 years of house-sits under my belt, from inner city flats to a Tasmanian farmhouse.. I work from home full time which allows me to give pets extra care throughout the day. I love the company of animals. I've looked after dogs, cats, birds, chickens and sheep - all with different personalities, medical needs and routines.

You can be assured that I will keep your home clean and tidy. I enjoy a bit of gardening, and have experience with basic pool maintenance.

A police check and excellent references are available on request (some are available below this profile). Ideally I'm after long term house-sits (1 month +) but will definitely consider shorter term options when there's a break in my calendar. Looking forward to hearing from you!

PS; Sometimes the Happy House Sitters website does not send an email notification when a message is received from a House Owner. I've raised this issue with the website administrator, but they haven't fixed it yet. I endeavour to check my inbox on this site every day and will respond as soon as I see your message :)

Hi, we are couple video and photographers from Poland who love to travel. We love animals (especially cats, as we have two cats back in Poland) and we have super heroes abilities in anything as far as it is about dog/cat/parrot/fishes/hamster. We are non-smokers and very, very tidy people. We started our trip through Australia on the end of April, and we are thinking about staying here for 2 years. We are doing house sitting for the last 4 months, so we have some experience and references. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask or call us. We’ll ll be happy to talk with you!

Rowena


  • Sydney, South Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

I am female, 43yo, with no children or pets.

I am a non-smoker smoker and I rarely drink.

I'm a casual worker but work mostly full-time.

I have done housesitting in the past, but have only recently started again.

I have police clearance for my job, but I would be happy to apply for a current clearance if you request one.

I have experience with cats, dogs, chooks, mice, lizards. Not much experience with snakes, but I like them, so no problems with handling or feeding them if you show me what's required.

Happy to look after larger animals/stock, but limited experience. Willing to learn.

Happy to mow lawns, water gardens, put bins out etc.

Finally, I'm more than happy to meet or even stay prior to a sit if required.

Amanda


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Meticulously clean & trustworthy professional offering:
- a love of pets, gardening and home maintenance
- experience house-sitting locally and internationally, with multiple rave reviews
- the flexibility to take on short and long term house-sitting projects
- a reputation for providing an outstanding experience for home-owners.

I’m a healthcare professional who enjoys clean-living - I’m non-smoking and exercise daily, so any active pets will be sure to get their walks in nature.

I divide my time between writing articles from home and working as a professional paramedic, which allows me ample time to give your pets plenty of love and attention, while also keeping your home and garden clean and well-maintained.

I can confidently assure you that your pride and joy will be expertly cared for. And in order to help ensure you return home feeling stress free, I am happy to assist with errands (mail collection, taking the bins out, starting your car engine as required so the battery doesn't go flat etc) and will happily keep you updated on how things are going via email, Facebook or Whatsapp - whichever you find most convenient.

I have been fortunate to care for homes both locally and internationally - excerpts from key references are provided below, with the full letters of recommendation available in the attachments.

M. Leslie of Elwood writes: “The house was spotless, the dogs were VERY happy and calm when I returned and I was really able to relax knowing they were in such good hands. I would absolutely recommend Amanda to anyone (actually I already have!) and I really hope that you’re available next time I head off as well!” (September 2018)

S. Umapalan of Elsternwick writes: “I was very nervous about using someone I didn’t know to look after my house - and more importantly my dog - while I was away interstate. Amanda has the most lovely and caring nature and on meeting her you really do feel at ease. Amanda’s organisation and communication throughout was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Best of all, I returned home to a very happy and well looked after dog and a home that actually looked and smelled better than the way I’d left it! It was the nicest feeling to walk in and realise someone had taken the trouble to think of the smallest details to make coming home such a breeze.” (August 2018)

P. Montmarte of Paris writes: “What can I say - Amanda is the perfect guest!” (July 2017)

L. Brigante of Florence, Italy writes: “Amanda was a perfect guest - polite, reliable and very tidy. It was a pleasure to have her. Highly recommended!” (June 2017)

J. Weber of San Francisco, California: “Amanda was an absolute breeze to deal with. We can easily recommend her to other home-owners and would welcome her back anytime! Easily five stars!” (October 2015)

NB: further references available upon request.

I am currently available for house-sitting assignments 2 weeks or longer in duration and would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your home & pet care requirements.

Sophia

If you are looking for someone who is trustworthy, reliable and honest to mind your home, then I will definitely be able to help you. Personally, I am a professional house sitter with over seven years experience. I will care for your home as a prized possession. As an animal lover it would be a joy to mind and pets that you may also have.
Being a Facilitator/Teacher of Self-Esteem I assist people to develop a Closer Relationship with Themselves. This is conducted over the phone or internet, creating the opportunity to work from home whilst caring for your pets. I am also a professional key note speaker, presenting topics on 'Overcoming the Epidemic of Depression & Loneliness'.
To give you piece of mind these are some aspects that I will take care of whilst you are away:
* looking after you pets with love, care & affection including feeding, walking, washing & keeping them company;
* tending to your lawn and garden with the patience of a gardener;
* cleaning and maintaining your home as your prized possession with the respect that it deserves;
* collecting mail and messages and redirecting them if necessary;
* if you have a swimming pool, it will be cleaned and maintained on schedule;
* I am very conscious about saving water and electricity. Driving you to and from the airport is also part of the service I can offer. I do not smoke or drink and do not hold parties. Volunteering for the Australian Red Cross, I have under gone a police check, am also happy to provide references and sign a house sitting contract. If you would like any further information, please give me a call or send an email.

Melissa


  • Melbourne

I'm Mel, I'm keen to housesit to explore different areas of Australia. I work as a nurse and am aiming to travel and work in various locations. I am a keen explorer of different areas and neighbourhoods pretty much everywhere. Hoping to housesit for a little to get a taste of the simple life away from the bit cities (originally from Melbourne), while I try and figure out what I want in life, and what better way to do that than explore our beautiful country! :)

I have previous experience housesitting dogs and cats and grew up with a Labrador, who I loved dearly. I'm happy taking dogs for walks and following any instructions there might be for the pet, i.e. How many walks per day and dietary requirements. I've always dreamed about having a pet cow and would be open to learning about farm animal care etc. Although I have limited experience with this thus far.

I have been housesitting in and around Melbourne continuously since August 2018 after a trip overseas, but had performed previous house/pet sitting jobs prior to this over the years. Very keen to take this on the road and learn how to look after more types of animals.

I always strive to maintain the cleanliness of the house I'm housesitting and I am a non-smoker.

Please let me know if your interested in chatting :)

Andrea


  • Brisbane, South Eastern

We're a traveling Swiss family of 4 (two boys, 5 and 7) arriving in Brisbane on the 10th of December and looking for a place to stay for the Xmas period. We and specifically our boys would be very happy to look after a pet. We parents both grew up in a rural environment and spent lots of time on farms among animals including dogs and cats. Although we don't have a family pet right now we feel quite up to the job of caring for one. It might also give us an insight into having one as currently our son Philipp is pressing for getting one... ;-)
We left Switzerland in August and traveled through the Middle East and South Asia. Both Daniel and I have already been a couple of times in Australia, so this time we're looking for a place to stay rather than doing sightseeing. We (engineer and housewife) are non-smokers, tidy, care for the environment and also live in a house back home.

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 Queensland, and we would like the opportunity to spend more time in the Sunshine Coast and 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.

Gusta


  • Melbourne

Hello from the other side!
You can call me Gusta :) I have a lot to tell... deep from my heart. I am overseas Remedial Massage student in Melbourne. Well.. I have my previous Bachelor's degree in Physiotherapy. Though I am not practicing at the moment. And yes.. I am well educated person which is a little bit lost between million thoughts (I guess Gemini sign has something with that). Normal these days. I am not rushing anywhere... enjoying, learning new things, love to have different experiences.
Surrounding myself with happiness and love to share that with others. Sometimes have a "hurt cheeks feeling" - I am smiling too much.
In love with swimming and recently started attend Movement Classes in Melbourne, which I am enjoying a lot!
Ohhhh.... And if you are reading my profile, you have to know that I have my spiritual animal. Llama. They are so cute and even used for therapy purposes (helping to deal with depression). Have so many good stories to tell about them. And wish to share my house with Llama one day. I even know the name for her - Nina. I guess there is no chance to take care of llamas but I love other animals too. AT the moment living with rabbits!
Cheers Gusta

Fiona & Marc


  • Darwin, Central, Northern QLD, Western QLD

We are a retired, married couple who love travelling Australia in our caravan with our NZ Collie dog, Illy.

We own our home in Deception Bay, Queensland, having moved from Tasmania in 2017 where we owned a house on a large block in a semi-rural area. We are well versed in what is required of house/pet sitters as we had housesitters in our home in Tassie when we went on our trips.

We are responsible, non smokers and pet lovers. Between us we have owned and/or cared for large and small dogs, cats, sheep, horses and chooks. Our dog is a 13 year old girl, very quiet and gentle. She gets on well with people and animals and is used to living with poultry (we had backyard free-range chooks) and in close proximity to sheep and cattle. She is respectful of cats also.

We are both fit and able to carry out light gardening, lawnmowing etc. and we would care for your home and animals as we would our own.

This is our first venture into house-sitting so we don't have references from owners, however we could provide references from neighbours whose pets we have cared for when they were on vacation.

Paul & Pauline


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

Hello

We are a retired couple and have been travelling and exploring (housesitting most of the time) for several years. We label what we do as slow travel and for the last year we’ve been in Broken Hill. But we are keen to get back out there and have resumed housesitting.
We are non-smokers and very quiet people. We are doing housesitting as a way to explore new places, meet new people and to have some quality time with animals when the opportunity arises. I (Paul) am a photographer and always welcome being in new places with new people and scenes to record. Pauline is using her time to explore drawing and painting and a little photography as her way of experiencing the new places we are continually discovering.

As mentioned above, we have been pet and housesitting for much of the last few years, both in England and here in Australia. Our housesitting references, as well as a couple of property references are listed on this site (some have been copied from other Housesitting sites we have been registered with over the years). Sharing our lives with animals is essential for us and we have cared for a great many in housesitting assignments as well as having had pets of our own in the past. During our housesitting lives we have cared for all shapes, sizes, and breeds of dogs, and many cats ranging from kittens and very timid rescued animals all the way to the ones who see themselves as ‘royalty’. Also, we have cared for a variety of birds as well as the odd lizard. We understand that each animal is a unique individual with its own specific needs, and we take the responsibility of caring for them very seriously. They are always our number one priority. We are very much ‘home bodies’, which means we are always there to provide security for your home and time for your pets.
In addition we have National Police Certificates which are available for sighting if required.
We look forward to hearing from you and if you need any more information from us, please contact us.
Thank you
Pauline and Paul

Francien


  • Brisbane, South Eastern, Central, TAS, Melbourne, Bendigo, Macedon Ranges, North Eastern, Gippsland, SW Vic
  • Reduced Contact

I would love to look after your much loved pets and farm/exotic animals as well your home.
I began sitting in 2011 so my experience is varied and interesting. I have just returned from 6 months in the USA sitting as well as a guest with home owners who are now my friends and ‘family ‘. I sat for these Home Owners during my 11 months in the USA and Canada in 2015.
I am a mature single woman, non smoker, clean, have my own vehicle and I don't have any pets of my own.
Below I have added my testimonials from my most recent sits in the states.
I look forward to hearing from you,
I can Facetime with you asap if you are interested.
Regards
Francien Daniels-Webb

PS I am the sitter interviewed by A Current Affair in Happy House Sitters media area. I have changed some what as walking dogs and checking out the environment around my sits has helped me become more healthy.

TESTIMONIALS
I've been putting off this review because I don't even know where to start. This was our first time using a housesitter and it took a leap of faith to give it a try. Well, we leapt with the perfect person. Francien provided a flawless service, from keeping in contact before and during the sit, taking care of our beagle's medicine and weird food habits, and generally spoiling them so rotten they were disappointed when we came home! Not to mention she assimilated and got to and around Chicago from out here in the suburbs like a pro! The only problem now is that I can't imagine another sitter could possibly rise up to the bar she has set. She is coming back to the states in 2017 and we plan on being first on her list.
AMY (Naperville, Illinois, Nov 2015)

My husband, 2 children and I had some wonderful adventures as we traveled around our beautiful country this past summer. It was an incredible journey and one our family will never forget. We were able to enjoy 39 days on the road with peace of mind knowing that our home, yard, pool, and most of all, our many pets were being well cared for. Francien Daniels Webb is a true blessing. Francien is a retired art teacher from Australia who has spent the last 3 years traveling the world taking care of people's homes and pets while the owners are away. Why does she do it? She loves animals, traveling and experiencing new things. Our family has loved spending time with Francien and have asked her to come back, even if just to visit. Francien does not expect reimbursement. As a homeowner, you must take care of the house bills and supply enough food for the pets. Feel free to Google her name. You will see that many people agree she is an incredible woman. If you are planning to travel ask Francien to look after your home and pets.. you will not be disappointed.
JULIE (Georgia, Jul 2015).
2018 I am here as a guest from the 5th June until the 10th June when the family go on a 6 day holiday then I am back into guest mode until I reluctantly leave 'my family' and all their pets, including Rosie the Tarantula, she was there in 2015 too.

Our housesitter Francien was an AMAZING asset to our family. She brought a demeanor of confidence and reassurance that everything would be fine. She is calm and very easy going. She is there if you need her and does her own thing when you don't. From the minute she entered our home it felt as though she had been a part of our family always. She is a GodSend!!! She has a way with animals that is impressive. She loved our cats and tortoise as if they were her own!!! She followed my specific requests and took it upon herself to clean and help out whererver she saw it appropriate. She took care of my little girl Sphynx (all 3 are Sphynx). My little Jennifer was sick and it didnt phase Francien. She was not bothered by anything. I truly could go on all day about Francien. She will meet the requests you have and add a lot extra! She is generous with her talents and a true joy to have around. We had her stay before and after our trip and honestly hated to see her go! She IS Mary Poppins to us!!!!!!!!! If you are having ANY reservations or have ANY questions please do not hesitate to contact us! We can alleviate any concerns you may have.

THEIR ENDORSEMENT OF YOU:
Francien was the perfect house and dog sitter for us! She is friendly, reliable, and responsible and did everything we asked for the house and the dogs. She really likes dogs and took such good care of them you could tell they were sad to see her leave at the end of her visit! She left the house cleaner than when she got there. We enjoyed meeting her and chatting with her and highly recommend her as a petsitter. Thank you Francien!

LINDSAY - FLORIDA
SIT DATE: Apr 2018
THEIR ENDORSEMENT OF YOU:
What a godsend Francien is. I could tell after just a short conversation of her love for animals and she came through with my 4 neurotic, persnickety cats! Thank you Francien, for taking wonderful care of our babies and keeping the house clean. Actually, it seemed cleaner when we got back than when we left. I hope our schedules match up again, because you are a jewel.

NICOLE - WINTER SPRINGS FLORIDA
SIT DATE: Apr 2018
THEIR ENDORSEMENT OF YOU:
Francien watched my miniature pinscher while my family was in Europe. If you are looking for a true animal lover to watch your furry friend look no further! Francien is the real deal. She snuggled and slept with my min pin nightly and even took her out on the town to Starbucks and the dog park while we away. She bought her treats and dressed her up in a bandana. When I checked in, she sent me adorable photos of their adventures. Francien left our house cleaner than we left it. She watered and tended to our plants even though we didn't remember to ask. She is a lovely house guest/sitter. We really appreciated the cute "scrubbies" she knitted and gifted when we arrived home. I did not worry once about my pup mourning my absence and the house was well taken care of as well. I highly recommend Francien!

JUTTA - WINNETKA CALIFORNIA
SIT DATE: May 2018
THEIR ENDORSEMENT OF YOU:
Francien is the most wonderful sitter I could have ever chosen. My fur kids absolutely adore her, and she is a true petgrannie. I have had the pleasure of being with her for a few days before I leave, and we have become dear friends. She is kind, compassionate and truly loves what she does. I am leaving my fur kids in her care with complete peace of mind.

Larissa


  • Melb. Inner suburbs

Hello, my name is Larissa, I am a single 40 yo female chef, I enjoy yoga, meditation, keeping fit, eating clean, reading, online study and music.
I recently travelled to Mexico where I was able to house sit with a gorgeous Labrador cross for 6 weeks. We had so much fun together, lots of beach time and walking every day. I thought why not continue doing the same home in Melbourne which will enable me to travel more in the future.
I have house sat for several friends in Melbourne, another lab cross in Elwood, a pom cross in Collingwood, and 3 cats and a poodle in St kilda. All of my friends will highly recommend me, not only do I adore animals and love spending time out and about with pups, I have worked in hospitality for 20+ years and naturally keep my work and living spaces clean.
My family live in Melbourne, Mum, older sister, nieces and nephews and I enjoy spending time here over Summer but intend to travel during the Winters.
My beautiful boy cat fonzie died in April 2018, he was 21 and absolutely the love of my life. I decided that given I want to travel a lot that having a pet is not suitable for me at this time but I really miss all the cuddles. So, if I can cuddle other peoples pets temporarily and save for travel, bonuses all round!
Because, I've decided to move from my permanent residence I am looking for longer term sits close to the city. My main job until June is based in South Melbourne but is purposely part-time which leaves plenty of time for walking, beaching, studying and relaxing.

Susie & Gary


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

We are on the road to retirement & looking forward to the next stage in our life, we are still doing some work via the internet & this means that we will be around for most of the time to care & watch over everything for you.

As well as travelling & having new experiences along the way, we have found that house sitting really suits us as it is so comforting to stay in a friendly home environment & if there are pets or animals to look after, then their company is an added bonus!

We love animals & wildlife & have had a long experience in caring for dogs, cats & farm animals. Unfortunately we no longer have our own pets, so we would welcome the opportunity to care for yours.

Over the years we have also had extensive experience in house & garden maintenance having renovated our own properties & also as sitters, we have cared for a number of different types of homes & properties ranging from large farms through to smaller homes & units.

We do understand that everyone's house & pets are different & we seriously take this on board & listen to each individuals requests & we will follow through with meeting your specific requirements while we stay & promise to keep you updated while you are away.

The opportunity to become your house sitter would be a great privilege & something we would not take for granted, as we both understand it is a necessity to respect your house & property & keep it well maintained while in residence.

We are both non smokers, healthy & happy people & look forward to hearing from you.

If required we can provide further reputable references & recommendation contacts.


Hope to hear from you !

Graham & Susan


  • Syd. Lower N Shore

Hello!

My wife Susan and I are 60-year old Canadians, married 32 years. We have been living in San Diego California for the last 30 years. No kids, but two lovely cats. A few months ago, we decided work was over-rated, and chose to travel the world instead. We had lived in Queenscliff from 1986-1991, and still have several close friends in the Manly area. So our first stop was naturally back to Manly. We are currently house and cat-sitting for several months in Manly, through early October. Looking for further dog and cat sitting opportunities after that!

We are clean, mature, responsible professional people who love animals, and travel. Susan grew up on a small farm with all the usual farm animals. We ourselves have a beautiful home, and a rental condo, so we understand what it takes to maintain a clean and orderly home, and take care of animals. We are the responsible folks you want to take care of your home and animals!

Jessica


  • Sydney

My name is Jessica and I am a responsible professional, studying part time whilst working full time.

I moved to Sydney at the end of last year and have been living in a share house and my work colleague recommended that I would be an ideal candidate for a house sitting arrangement.

I am an avid animal lover, with experience of owning four dogs of my own. Unfortunately due to a break up, two of my dogs are now residing with my previous partner and my other two dogs are living with my parents until I save enough money to find a place where I can keep them with me.

I have vast experience with domestic animals, as I previously worked and volunteered with RSPCA QLD and hold a certificate 3 in Animal Studies. I was in the foster care program in which I would care for various animals until they were ready for adoption.

I would care for your pets as if they were my own and would welcome coming home to pets again, as I miss mine dearly.

Rhonda & William


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Southern suburbs, Mackay & Whitsundays, Townsville

Our daughter and son in law are living in Cronulla . We visit regularly and house sitting is a perfect way to achieve this. We love animals especially dogs and cats. We are very active positive minded people and take responsibility and any commitment we make seriously. Non smoking and enjoy healthy food and exercise especially around the beach environment.

I have had a number of careers from Cadet Surveyor in Tasmania, a Patrol Officer (Kiap) with the Australian Government in remote outstations in Papua New Guinea, and a career in administration and sales in the Aluminium and Timber Industries in Australia.
I am a retired CPA (Degree in Commerce) and am a JP (Qual) in Queensland. I am a very practical and hands on person and able to take on many tasks.
As owner builders Margaret and I built our two story timber home at Hervey Bay where we lived for 20 years prior to basing ourselves at Agnes Water in Queensland. During our seven years in PNG I was posted to very isolated outstations where I was responsible for most government matters including police, magisterial, treasury and local government affecting the local people of a sub district.
We are quite happy to house sit in areas that are isolated.
Margaret as a retired early childhood teacher has taught in Primary schools in Tasmania, NSW, PNG, ACT and Queensland for the past 42 years. She loves gardening and outdoors.
We have owned swimming pools in Brisbane and Townville and know how to maintain them.
We have had many pets over the years. Our last two dogs were a German Shepherd and a three kg toy poodle who were great mates as we had them at the same time. We do not have pets now.
We have our own self contained off road caravan and could be independent.
We have house and pet minded at the town of Seventeen Seventy (near Agnes Water) on two occasions looking after three large dogs.
We are currently travelling our way around Australia and wish to see and experience as much as we can.
We have a son in Sydney and a daughter at Agnes Water and four grandchildren who we love dearly and visit regularly.
Above all we are friendly, have a good sense of humour, active and enjoy meeting people. You can rest assured that we would look after your property in the best way.

I'm a single, mature (48 yrs), non-smoking, professional female looking for an alternative to renting. Recently divorced and just finished a career break, this is a great way to conserve my funds for future security. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and will take excellent care of your property. Having previously owned houses and apartments for 22 years in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, London & Texas (corporate rental), I am security-conscious and aware of the care and attention needed in keeping a house and garden well-maintained. I am clean, organised and house-proud. I have experience with looking after pools, water tanks & acreage. I enjoy gardening and I love the company of pets, having owned several dogs, cats and birds for over 40 years from early childhood. My last fur-baby was a stray cat who arrived on my doorstep in the USA, came with me on my return to Australia and passed away aged 21. I have looked after a wide variety of pets while housesitting - small dogs, large dogs, dogs with medical needs, cats, laying hens, birds, fish, and a huge carpet python. So, I will be able to take great care of your fur-babies. I love walking, the water, peace and quiet, and my own company. I am available for any length of house sitting and will provide both personal and professional references, as well as a police clearance. I look forward to your call and meeting with you.

I have been a local on the Sunshine Coast for over 30 years. I'm single, non-smoker, very reliable, honest, easy going with quiet habits and who loves to keep a clean tidy home for you. I am also water and energy conscious. Being a home owner myself, I have also experienced first hand leaving everything that I love and care for with someone else. My animals were always my major concern. Would they get the same love and attention? I can assure you that sensitivity towards the privacy of your home with an added touch of TLC will be given respectfully to your wishes/needs and your animals also. Animals with specific health requirements, require a gently and comfortable approach. I have loved and owned a variety of animals including looking after a baby snake. I like to walk for exercise so if you have animals that require this, then together we can enjoy the great outdoors. Watering gardens and maintaining pools are both familiar to me. Not a problem. I am confident once we chat and meet, you will feel that your belongings and beloved animals are safe in my tender loving hands. Love to hear from you.
