michael


  • WA

My name is Michael Mathews. I have been house and pet minding since 2008
I do have a web page which has many testimonials:
www.perthhousesitters.com.au
I am a mature male, single, very strong and healthy and very experienced with all types of animals.
I am a non smoker, non drinker and have a current police clearance certificate.
I am neat and tidy and take the house sitting commitment very seriously. An attitude of "she'll be OK mate" does not belong in the house sitting industry.
I am meticulous and thorough and I always look upon myself as the "Occupational Health and Safety Officer" for your pets.
The reason I got into pet minding was because I had been living with my partner for many years.
She had 4 lovely pets. When we went our separate ways she took all her pets. I rented a unit and whenever I arrived home and opened the front door, I would experience a feeling of loneliness. There was just no life force, no energy...no pets to play with, no happiness, no laughter. It is not much fun watching TV without a cat on the couch and a dog at your feet.
To get my daily "pet fix" I started house sitting and I can honestly say that the last few years have been the most joyful, blissful and rewarding years of my life.
Over the past few years I have looked after hundreds of pets, including 26 Alpacas, big dogs like Rottys, little dogs like Chihuahuas, fast dogs like Huskies, asthmatic cats on ventolin pumps, ducks, fish ponds, chickens, bird aviaries, horses and elephants (only joking... but I would be happy to give it a go...imagine picking up their daily poo in a yellow poo bag!!!)
I recently looked after a vets pets...3 cats, 2 dogs, 2 birds and 2 ferrets...they peed and pood everywhere but that is part of the job.
I have looked after pets in the suburbs and on farms, even had to learn to drive a tractor to pick up all the Alpaca poo, and mow the grass with a drive on mower.

Trish


  • Melbourne

Experienced sitter looking for long or short term house sits in NZ.

Hi there,

My name is Trish, and I'm the ideal choice for caring for your home and pets whilst you are away.

I am a 37 yr old, non-smoking female who is responsible, attentive and honest.

I spent most of my twenties and early thirties travelling the world. I see house-sitting as a great solution for seeing NZ and saving my pennies for my own home.

I have a fair amount of house-sitting experience having looked after and cared for people's homes and pets in Sydney for a year in 2014, with proven references, and also in Auckland in 2017.

A few helpful things to know about me:
- I'm an animal lover and grew up with cats, dogs, pigs and guinea pigs
- I generally work full time Mon-Fri
- I am well-traveled and spent 3.5 years working on luxury super yachts so have a high standard of cleanliness, always leaving the homes I look after in great appearance
- My friends would most likely describe me as diplomatic, loyal, responsible, honest and caring

When you choose me as your sitter, you can rest assured that your home will be well looked after, your plants will continue to flourish and your pets will be loved as if my own.

Don't hesitate to ask me any questions. Please let me know if you would like to chat further and I can call you. I think house sitting is a wonderful idea and I look forward to meeting amazing people and furry friends along the way, and being able to help in whatever way I can.

I have references and police check on file.

Thanks
Trish

Lisa & Andy


  • Perth

Our family of 3 (Andy 45, Lisa 34, Alex 8) are making our way around Australia in the hope to see some incredible sites along the way- which I'm sure if inevitable.
We love meeting new people and love being socially interactive. We are a very clean and tidy family and very responsible and honest people.
With only one of the adults in the family working at any one time we have plenty of time to look after people homes and pets while they are away enjoying their holidays.
We are non smokers and certainly over the "party" stage of our lives. We would love to be given the opportunity to help like minded people be able to travel without the worry of their home or pets being left behind.
We hope you will consider us for your next house sit opportunity and rest assured we would not let you down.

We have just finished working and house sitting on a cattle property in Croydon Far North Queensland which has been a truly incredible experience.We were feeding cattle, mending fences,driving bobcats and looking after the farm dogs.
Prior to travelling we were living in Wahroonga and I had been working at Sirocco in Willoughby.Shaun has been in the building industry and is very skilful in all aspects of handiwork.
We have had dogs and chooks and love all animals.
This year we have been working on Bedarra Island as caretakers/managers and are looking forward to visiting our 3 daughters in Sydney over the Xmas new year period

Frank & Roxanne


  • Brisbane

The thought of someone else not only looking after your home but potentially your treasured pets can be daunting. Having trusted our own homes in the past with house sitters we fully understand the anxiety and worry that can come with that experience. We will do everything we can to ease that worry.
We are an easy going non-smoking couple who have moved back to Australia after living in Canada. We are both experienced travellers and love the outdoors. We have been house sitting to get to know Brisbane again. Frank is the native Australian and it's been 24 years since he's lived in Brisbane. Roxanne, having lived her whole life in Canada is now enjoying the Aussie lifestyle after getting a taste with frequent visits in the past.
Personally our last 2 pets were cats that we cared for to ages 18 and 20 so experience with elderly pets is no problem. We currently have no pets of our own so expect yours to get spoiled with attention. Big dogs or small dogs, long haired or short haired cats, your pets will get loved as if our own.
We're experienced with a variety of pets such as cats, dogs, birds (budgies parrots finches), fish, and chooks/ducks. We also like to keep hosts updated with how their pets holiday at home is going. We can frequently upload pictures or video of your pets for additional piece of mind.
Around the home we are both quite handy if problems arise. Franks gardening/yard work skills come as a graduate of his fathers Child Yard Work Apprenticeship Program as a youngster. We would expect to treat your home with respect as lets face it, we're guests. I wouldn't say I'd treat it as my own home, more like I'd look after it in a manner you would want it to be looked after while you were away.
As we're non smokers and only social drinkers our entertainment is eating out. We'd love to get to know your local area and it's restaurants and cafes as we rediscover Brissy.

  • Northern Rivers, Tweed Coast, Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

Hi, my name is Ian.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I have previously owned 3 homes (Sydney and Brisbane). Married for 30 years (now divorced) and have 2 adult children.
We've had dogs, cats and an assortment of other animals plus I'm comfortable looking after reptiles.

Previously worked within Advertising agencies, commercial radio (Sydney, Melbourne and Hong Kong), holding management positions along with running my own handyman business in more recent years.

I have been house sitting the homes of friends in city and rural areas for about 5 years, often caring for acreage/ waterfront
properties. I'm very familiar with pool care and grey watering systems and I've decided to continue home sitting in a full time capacity.
I'm quiet living, sociable, non smoking and enjoy an occasional glass of wine. My interests are; camping, bush walking, gardening, sailing and reading.
I look forward to meeting with you and discussing your needs. I have encluded a couple of references for you to read.
Kind regards,
Ian Mcleod.

  • Syd. Upper N Shore, Central Coast, South Coast, Rural/Regional NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, South Eastern, Central, Central Coast (Qld), Northern QLD, Western QLD, SA, Melb. NW suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs, Northern Vic, SW Vic

We are a fully retired mature couple who live in the Warrnambool area. We have decided to see this fabulous country of ours by helping others care for their homes and pets while they holiday elsewhere. We are very house/garden- proud. Our garden is as immaculate as the interior. We would treat your house as our own and leave it as we found it.

We are non- smokers.

We have no pets of our own but love animals. Myles is a retired farmer, cleaner and transport company owner and I have grown up with cats, dogs, fish, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, stick insects,etc. Therefore, we would treat you precious pets with love, understanding and kindness.

I have recently retired after teaching in the classroom for 40 years and from owning a tutoring business for 6 years. Up until now,we have been restricted to house-sitting during school holidays.

We both have Police Checks and Working With Children Checks.


We have completed 29 house-sits so far, so have happy owners who would be happy to vouch for us. We also have 2 other referees who are willing to chat to you regarding our honesty and integrity.

We are presently booked in NSW until mid-January 2018 when we return to Vic for further sots..

We contact owners on a daily basis by email, WhatsAp or Skype to put their minds at rest about the security and happiness of their pets.

We would be honoured if you would consider us in looking after your home and treasured pets.

Thanking you.

Liz and Myles

Jessica


  • Sydney

I am a mature and responsible public servant from Canberra, also currently undertaking studies at the Australian National University with majors in Human Rights and History. I will be working in Sydney for 6 months between June and December 2017 and would love the opportunity to get to know your pets and neighborhood. Longer term arrangements would be preferred but I am very flexible and am more than happy to look at shorter term stays. My beloved pets are staying with my parents in Canberra whilst I am away and I will miss them dearly. I'd love to have the opportunity to sit for people with animals so I can shower them with the love and affection that my fur babies will be missing.

I am clean, tidy and reliable and have a lot of house sitting experience around Canberra and Melbourne. I have built fabulous relationships with clients who have frequently asked me back and have plenty of references are available upon request.

Pets have always been an integral party of my family and I have always grown up around a lot of animals such as cats, dogs, horses, fish and chickens. During my house and pet sitting experience I have cared for a range of pets from a wide spectrum of ages. Recent experiences have included looking after an elderly cat and ill dog who both required daily medications, caring for a very enthusiastic Rottweiler puppy and looking after two young kittens. I have been responsible for delivering medications to a number of pets and am comfortable with oral delivery of liquid and tablet medications, hypodermic injections of medications and adjustments around the house to make pets more comfortable.

I will groom and walk your pets and spend quality time with them, keeping them comfortable and loved. Whilst caring for your pets and your home I will also happily undertake a range of tasks such as picking up mail, bringing in and taking out bins and maintaining your garden.

I appreciate the responsibility that is entrusted to house and pet sitters and will respect your home and animals and keep both safe and tidy during your absence.

Melanie


  • Melbourne

Hello Pet-Parents,

I am currently available for house sitting in Melbourne October 7th-20th and onwards from November 20th.

I'm 39 years old, organised, honest, respectful, reliable and a non-smoker. House sitting is fantastic for me because I love animals and travel. I look after pets and homes as if they were my own. Having grown up with animals, I enjoy their company and I love getting to know their individual quirks and personalities.

Since joining Happy House Sitters I've looked after over 20 homes and returned to many homes for a second sit. This brings me to having cared for over 40 dogs and cats, 3 rabbits, 1 bird and a few chickens and fish!

I try to maintain pet routines (commands, sleeping, dog walking/running, socialising at the park, grooming, etc.) as much as possible. I’m very affectionate and playful with animals. I know how important it is for them to have someone who will talk and play with them. I have administered medication, looked after elderly pets and dogs of all shapes and sizes.

I'm house-proud, clean, organised (ex-visual merchandiser), responsible and experienced at running a household efficiently. For all my homes I maintain regular house cleaning, checking/forwarding mail, keeping in touch with photos and updates, looking after plants and gardens and providing a welcoming home to return to.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information or to ask any questions. (Kindly note: Unfortunately I'm sensitive to cigarette smoke so I can only look after smoke-free homes.)

Regards,

Melanie

Frank & Sharon


  • Sydney

We are a senior couple looking for some house sitting opportunities while our own house is being rebuilt, which is expected to take most of 2018. Frank is retired but Sharon is still working.

Our own two dogs went to the big kennel in the sky last year, after long and spoiled lives. We do miss them and would love to mind someone else's dog (or cat or other pet) for a time.

We are a responsible, mature couple who will look after your place as if it was our own - we know what needs to be done for pets, gardens and cleaning and all the usual household duties. We don't smoke or drink, and generally prefer a life of quiet enjoyment and tranquility.We occasionally house sit or mind dogs for friends who would give a reference if needed.

We can stay for medium to longish periods; very short stays would probably not be of interest. We would prefer to remain in or around The Sutherland Shire area, but other locations nearby such as St George or close to work in the Botany or Eastern beaches areas would also suit us.

Alan & Claire


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs

We are a mature responsible couple who love to travel and experience the beauty and culture of the places we visit. We have always had pets, love animals and realise that making sure they are healthy and happy is of paramount importance. We also own properties and therefore know the importance of maintaining homes to ensure they are safe and well cared for.

We are both in our fifties and recently retired from the workforce. We are fit and enjoy walking and outdoors activities. We lived abroad for 5 years and just enjoy slow travel, while meeting new people and experiencing new locations. We have had the opportunity to house sit in Spain and Portugal as well as housesitting on our visits back to Australia. We are mid-way through a 12 month sit on a lovely property in Northern N.S.W looking after a wonderfully energetic border collie.

Why we want to housesit
Housesitting gives us the opportunity to broaden our horizons, meet new people and of course look after animals. We love the idea of helping someone take a much-needed break without the worry of leaving their pets in care. We have experience in looking after animals and understand they are all individual with their own personality and special needs.

Trish


  • Sydney

Hi. My name is Trish. I'm 59, single and am a non-smoker. I have lived in Sydney for 35 years as a primary school teacher with the NSW Department of Education. 18 months ago I moved to Tasmania where I am deputy principal. I want to come back to Sydney for every Tasmanian school holiday to have a break, catch up with friends and be in the city that I love.
I own my own home in Sydney, but it's currently being rented, so I understand the worry about a house being cared for well. I am neat, clean, organised, reliable and totally trustworthy. I grew up with pets, including horses, chooks, rabbits, a dog, cats and a cockatoo. I would be very caring and kind to your pets. I love animals!
I have done twelve house-sits and loved every one of them. I have a police check clearance and references available.
As well as the occasional outing, I mostly want to 'veg' at 'home' after a busy school term. My hobbies are reading, movies, opera, art galleries, museums, etc. I go to the gym and dinners (they balance each other out!) I also love walking, squash and skiing.
We can email, Skype or phone.
Hope to hear from you!

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..

Jenny


  • Sydney

I’m semi-retired and type medico-legal reports at night for a doctor for about 2 nights each week. I'm healthy and am a responsible, organised, clean living, non-smoking person, who is very security conscious and would love to look after your home and pet(s).
Basically I’m a cat lover – my last friend was Jasper, a Blue Burmese, who became ill and had to be euthanased just before his 16th birthday. The previous cat was Tangles, a Tonkinese, who came via the Freebies column in the Trading Post when 6 years old. Unfortunately she became ill with hyperthyroidism when aged 17. Before Tangles, I had two other cats for a total of 30-odd years.
I love little dogs but as I have always lived in apartments, unfortunately, little dogs are not always welcome. Over the last eighteen plus months I have looked after quite a few small dogs, i.e. a Cavoodle and Maltese X dogs and one in particular, Rosie, who I have looked after many times. Rosie's mother, Naomi, is very happy to provide a verbal reference for me. Currently I look after three Siamese pussy cats, who live at Mosman, a Birman pussy cat, who lives at Northbridge as well as a Cavoodle, who lives at Dee Why.
I live in Neutral Bay and don't drive. I have a National Police Certificate, No. NCHRC-2010-36949, a reference from Adrienne Pegler, Veterinary Surgeon at Cremorne Veterinary Clinic as well as both personal and business references. I have a Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband.

  • Sydney

We are a mother and daughter team from the UK and are particularly looking for a house sit for about 3 weeks in Sydney in December. We are looking for a house sit in Sydney because my brother lives in Chatswood so we would like to be able to visit him and his family sometimes while we are housesitting. We are caring people, non-smokers, interested in and enjoy spending time with animals. We have plenty of experience of looking after our own and other people's cats, dogs, homes and gardens. We would like a housesit where we are able to go out sometimes in the daytimes so animals that don't get lonely too easily would be ideal. We will look after your house and garden very well and are happy to walk dogs, mow lawns and do other household chores. If you were interested in spending some time in London in the UK in December I would also be open to a house swap. I am very centrally located, no pets, a small garden and a few indoor plants. This is only an option, in case it appealed to you. Am also happy just to sit for you and a friend will look after my house while I'm away.

Con


  • ACT, Melbourne

Hello there, my name is Con. I'm a self-employed professional doing work ranging from security consulting to training facilitation, I've hold various management roles over 30 years and am very much a people person. I'm 49 years of age.

My work sees that I can spend many days working from home and generally two to three days a week out and about. I provide part-time care of my elderly father which I've been doing since mum passed away two years ago. I have been a multiple house owner so appreciate the general responsibilities with looking after a home. I appreciate my own space and also study part-time which is why house sitting suits.

I lead a clean and healthy lifestyle, fitting in swimming and being active. I don't smoke and can take care of gardening/watering chores as well as required. I'm perfectly comfortable with pets, I have a Shetland sheepdog I take joint care of with my daughter, fine with cats also and am an animal lover in any event.

I can arrange for references if required - I haven't done house sitting since living in Canberra in mid 2000's but managed a large 5 acre property with pets for 11 weeks at one time.

Sophie & Peter


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are a mature couple (68 and 72 year olds) non drinkers and non smokers. Fit and able to do garden and walk pet. We like to ride our bikes to explore whatever region we may visit.
The idea is to head north each year to escape the southern winters.

Sarah


I am a single, non-smoking professional currently living in Perth and working for a Hospitality Company. Having rented property myself, I am conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house maintained. I have grown up with pets and consequently I believe that I would be able to take great care of yours.

House sitting duties included keeping the home clean and tidy, bringing in the mail and looking after the gardens. I have looked after dogs including walking, feeding, grooming and providing lots of love and attention whilst the owners have been away. I have also looked after cats.

Whilst I do work Monday to Friday it is during the day and I'm home during evenings and weekends, and pets are always a priority.

I am available for any length of house sitting and can provide a reference, as well as a police clearance. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your property.

I would love to hear from you if you are interested in me taking fantastic care of your home and animals.

ELENI


  • Hobart, Rural/Regional Tas, Melb. Inner suburbs

I am a 51 year old who sold her apartment in Elwood in 2016 (after 16 years) and has recently returned from Europe and Morocco. I am at the 'in-between' stage of my journey ... I cannot decide where to live, so have not purchased my next sanctuary yet. House-sitting is a great alternative to renting as I am not in a position to commit to a 12 month lease.
Having been a homeowner in the past and shared various properties in my life, I appreciate what is required in looking after a home.
I haven't really had experience in house-sitting per se - I stayed in a house in a French village in July/August last year for 3 weeks and looked after the house & 6 cats whilst the owner was mostly away in the city with work - I suppose it was house-sitting, although the owner would return on the weekends. Needless to say, I love cats - the cats were all fed, watered and appeared happy - they even invited a hedgehog to dinner one night :-) ... and I did a lot of AirBnB ... there are reviews of my stay in the AirBnB site.
I am very reliable, clean, a non-smoker, enjoy my daily walks and like to cook at home, with the occasional theatre show & dinner night out. Please feel free to contact me or alternatively, I am happy to meet to discuss your requirements. Thanx!

Kaz


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

My name is Kaz, and I am an experienced house/pet sitter. I am 65 years old, non smoker, and love animals - particularly dogs. My last 4 legged companion (Tigger - a retired Greyhound) passed away several years ago. His passing (at the ripe old age of 14) meant I could take on new ventures.

I love new places, and looking after furry kids - fishy, feathered kids if necessary!!

Having worked in extremely remote communities over a 10 year period, I am organised and adaptable, and would look after your home and pets as I would my own. Up until late 2014, I owned my own home. I sold, in preparation to moving to country NSW in November of 2016. I have been permanently housesitting since 2012.

In March of 2014, I closed my landline crystal and mineral business, and moved to selling online. Which means that I work from home. I have my own internet connection, and chose Telstra as my provider, as their coverage is (generally!!) greater.

I have a current "Working with Childrens" check - this check has photo ID, plus is far more thorough than a normal police check.

I am currently booked for the following dates:

17th Feb - 4th March: Wingham.
24th March - 13th April: Bathurst, NSW.
13th April - 18th April: West Haven, NSW.
18th April - 25th April: Lake Cathie, NSW.
26th April to 10th June: Toowoomba, Qld
14th June - 15th July 2017: Scotts Head, NSW.
17th November to 18 December: Port Macquarie, NSW.

Some recent feedback from clients:

"It is always reassuring to know the dogs can be at home rather than in kennels We were able to enjoy planning the trip and then eventually being away with your great service. The dogs were well cared for and obviously enjoyed your presence very much so we are happy too!! No problem if you use these comments". Joe and Anne, Perth, WA

"We were very happy with Kaz. Fergie is a rather strong and dominant rescue dog with a few problems such as separation anxiety and we came back to find her actually better than when we left! So much so, that I have asked Kaz to meet up for a walk with the dog so I can learn from how she handles her!

For the first time ever, our cat had not pined and lost weight. The house was neat and tidy and Kaz had go above and beyond in every respect." Carol and Punch, Perth, WA.
