Patricia & John

  • Sydney, Central Coast, Lower Hunter Valley, Mid North Coast, Southern Highlands

My husband and I are retired and matured aged and experienced in caring for all animals from goldfish to guinea pigs, cats to 60 kg dogs to goats, sheep and horses.
We have attained skills based on the Parelli Natural Horsemanship principals. We follow the pet owners instructions to the letter.

We can offer references both from happy home owners and a character reference for a highly reputable organisation. . There is a recent reference attached to this site but not everyone can open it so I am happy to send it to you via email. We do not have Police checks as such but my husband has a "working with children" clearance which went through the same process. .

We have over the years cared for some very upmarket homes on Sydney's Northern Beaches and harbourside suburbs. We understand the need to care for expensive items in the home.
We have our own lovely home in Tea Gardens at Port Stephens. We are very houseproud and keep it spotless. We therefore seek similar quality homes to ours.
Whilst we love animals we do not allow them to sleep on our bed or in our room.

This Christmas we are looking to sit somewhere in the Gladesville/Hunters Hill and riverside areas . Alternatively Sydney's Northern Beaches up as far as Avalon

We have children and grandchildren in Sydney as well as an elderly mother in law at Camden so we need to be able to visit them during our time there.

We will not be back available to house sit anywhere other than Sydney for the rest of 2017 Blackout dates are May 8th to August 5th. We probably need to spend the 24, & 25th December with our elderly mother and then can proceed on to a house sitting assignment. However this is negotiable.

Throughout the year we are keen to find short sits of weekends or up to 4 days out in the Camden. Macarthur area due to our mother in laws location. Semi rural is nice such as the areas around Camden Picton, The Oaks etc.

Please call if you would like to have any further information.

Yours sincerely,

Patricia and John

Catherine & Wayne

  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Sunshine Coast

We are available over Xmas but would prefer something on acreage to get away from suburban lifestyle and loud Xmas festivities for a while. We have a booking for a house sitting position in Lennox Heads from 29th December. So, please allow time for travel there.
We are retired, caring and experienced sitters. We are quiet, non-smokers, reliable, trustworthy, very clean and tidy. We pride ourselves in looking after your house and fury babies as if they were our own! We both love pets, having owned and lovingly cared for various types of animals. We don’t mind sharing our bed with some furry creatures. We are also keen gardeners and have looked after pools and acreage, including ride on lawn mower.
We are currently doing most of the renovations ourselves on our home on the Redcliffe peninsula, Nth Brisbane. As such, we are very handy with tools and equipment and would be able to tackle most urgent repairs or ongoing maintenance required in your home or on acreage.
In her early twenties, Catherine worked as a housekeeper, then was in charge of them in 4 star hotels. Later, she did private house cleaning to supplement her full time job. As such, you can be guaranteed that your house will be left clean when you return.
Before retiring, we both worked for the public service in professional high level positions for 20 or so years. We travelled overseas extensively and would now like to primarily concentrate on seeing other parts of our beautiful country. We like to live as one of the locals, as well as discovering the surroundings when we are away. So, being able to do this, whilst caring for your home and pets as if they were our own, is the perfect solution!
We can also bring our own camper van, should you prefer us to stay in the vicinity, rather than inside your house. The camper can left at home as well.
We love views (from suburban blocks as well), tranquillity (we love the out of the way house sitting positions), proximity to beach or lake. We will definitely consider other locations as well. We prefer long house sitting assignments (of a month or more). However, we will consider all offers.
We have references and current National police clearances. We can provide other documents, such as drivers’ licences, upon request.
Thank you for considering us.
Catherine and Wayne


  • Sydney


I am a responsible person, I love pets and where I live at the moment, I am boarding, and I am not allowed to have a pet. I am in transition at the moment, waiting to have a place of my own completed. I love singing. I spent the last three years studying classical singing. You can see on the photo, I am singing at the concert-exam at the end of my Master's in Classical singing. I do not smoke, do not drink. I work as a sales representative and I drive around for work but do not start early in the morning. I like to keep a clean house. I am friendly to pets, I like to cuddle them. I can provide references and I have a police check.

Jenny & Sam


  • Melbourne

Hi there!
My name is Isabelle and I'm a 27 year old working part time as a children's entertainer (Hey Dee Ho) and as a sales assistant in a Melbourne based dress store (Very Very) in the city. I have been housesitting all year since becoming single and I am using this opportunity to save some money before I go on some travels later in the year.

I understand the worries of traveling and leaving your home and animals behind as my family used to go on holidays and do the same thing. I will keep you updated with photos and messages so you won't feel as far from your furry friends! I absolutely love animals and have lived with cats, dogs, chickens in the past so I can promise your animals will get the absolute best attention they deserve.

As my jobs are scattered to just 2 morning shifts and 2 full days in the week I am home a lot as I also make music from my computer (always using headphones so not to worry about noise complaints). I have a great track record with rentals and am more than happy to give contact details if you wish to get a referral. I live a very healthy active lifestyle and am happy to take your dogs for as many walks as you wish. I am excited to enter this new phase of my life and whilst it is hard for me to give up my home and garden I am looking forward to caring for others and living a bit more lightly.

I am super reliable and responsible - as I have a working with children's card I have also had a police check. If you wish to contact any of my employers for references please don't hesitate to contact me for their details.

Bonnie & Joshua

  • Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. S W suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs


My name is Bonnie Rose, and I am a 23 year old Australian student studying environmental science at the University of Queensland. My partner is 20 year old German student studying computational engineering. Joshua and I met whilst he was travelling Australia last year, and decided to stay together. We flew back to Germany and have spent the past 3 months living here, whilst continuing our studies externally. In the time that I was in Germany, my mother moved back to Victoria where the rest of my family is located, and due to my university being in Brisbane, I need to stay in Queensland. As travelling students, one would imagine that our funding is quite low - even though we both work as tutors, flights have been expensive. Hence the idea for house sitting!

We are both non-smokers, non-drinkers and love pets of all kinds! We are both clean and love a tidy place, have a car in which we can run errands for you (or your pet) if need be and have never been in trouble with the law. Whilst neither of us have done house-sitting before, we both have several references (from employers, other house mates, personal references, au-pairs and woofing) for people you could talk to or receive an email from upon request, to substantiate our characters.

We are looking for somewhere to stay from around July 20th (could be a little earlier or later, if need be).

Ngaire & Adam

  • VIC

We are a close knit, fun loving little family of 3. Myself, Ngaire, I'm an Osteopath and own my business so need only be in the clinic 1 day a week, and the rest of the time I can work from home. My husband, Adam, who works for a pharmaceutical company, and our 3.5year old daughter Maeve, who just loves life, people, nature and animals.

We will be taking off on an adventure around Australia in March 2018 for 6months, however we have decided to rent our home out before then, and house sit for 7 months, as we have previously had experience house sitting and loved it! At this stage, we will be available for sits any time between July 2017, and March 2018. We are non smokers, who take pride in our home and possessions, and care for anyone else's home like we would our own. We understand how it feels to trust someone else with your home and pets.

We are happy to care for your home, keep it neat and clean, do extra little jobs and you can trust that your house will be in the same great condition you left it when you return. We love to explore as a family, and enjoy walking dogs or taking them out and about. We would be pleased to care for any animal in whatever they need. Maeve is a gentle and kind 3year old who understands appropriate behaviour with pets. Obviously, we need to care only for animals who are comfortable with children, so that we make sure she is safe. She also understands caring for other people's property and is no problem in a home that hasn't been "child proofed". You won't even notice she has been there!

Previous house sitting roles have involved us caring for 2 dogs, 4 cats and multiple fish in one house in the heat of summer. We are up to the challenge! We are also fine, with just a small dog who loves a cuddle, we are pretty flexible!

As a family we love spending time exploring new places, having coffee with friends and just being together. We get out and about but also enjoy time at home so your pets would have company too. We love spending time at the beach, or catching the train to the city for an explore, and of course if there is a great park around, we love a play! We are a footy loving family, though we don't agree on our teams ;-).

We would love to hear from anyone looking for down to earth, relaxed but hard working people to care for your house or pets. We are open minded for any types of property. I am fully registered as an Osteopath, so of course have no criminal history, but we are more than happy to arrange police checks for anyone who requires it! Please feel free to contact us with any questions at all that you may have. We are so excited for the next chapter and the variety that house sitting brings and look forward to hearing from you!


  • Melbourne

With an extensive and varied house-sit and rental history alike, I bring considerable experience and versatility to caring for your home, companion animals and garden. I have house-sat everything from apartments with pot plants, to small farms with alpaca herds. Added to this is my experience as a houseguest while travelling in Europe and Australia, from which I received consistently positive reviews.

I am a professional woman, mid-thirties, employed part-time at the University of Melbourne. I value house-sitting for its flexibility and opportunity to experience new parts of Melbourne. I love the city of Melbourne, and as much as possible indulge its arts, circus and live jazz. I genuinely enjoy the company of animals, having lived with animals of all kinds since childhood. I am willing and able to provide especial care to animals with specific medical or welfare needs. I am sensitive to requests to refrain from using particular foods in the kitchen (pork, gluten, kosher, vegan etc) and strive to leave a small eco-footprint as a matter of principle. Basic maintenance, postal pick-ups and other errands are a given. I happily contribute to utilities.

House-proud and trustworthy, I would be delighted to care for your home. References available.

Current House Sit ending June 6th.
Upcoming House Sits: June 9th - July 21st; July 21st - Aug 15th; and Aug 25th - Sept 23rd.

  • Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, Gippsland


I'm a tidy, conscientious, smoke-free 55 yr old professional living and working in Melbourne. I've had the pleasure of caring for 20 dog/cat families since January 2015. It's been a great experience! And I have plenty of great references to offer from these sits.

I'm keen to house sit for a few reasons. First, I MISS HAVING PETS IN MY LIFE! I currently live in a houseshare where I can't have pets. Secondly, house sitting gives me an opportunity to see more of Victoria. I'm learning about communities and meeting great people. And thirdly, I'm recently divorced and pet/house sitting allows me to rebuild my savings.

My motivation to be a good pet sitter also stems from my own experience as a property owner needing to rely on a pet sitter. I spent two months touring through NZ and AU. I used a house sitter to care for the flat and my five cats and she was fabulous! Knowing she was there made my trip that much more enjoyable.

So I know great having a responsible and conscientious house sitter can be. And I aim to provide the same experience to you :)

In addition to great references I also have a police check. And I'm always happy to chat. So feel free to call if you have questions or would like to ask some questions.

Thanks for your consideration.

Best Wishes,

Melissa & Andrew

  • Melbourne

Hello there! :D

My name is Mel and my fiancé (soon to be husband's ;)) name is Andrew. We are a mature aged couple who are currently renting and saving for a house. I work for Virgin Australia and Andrew works at Swinburne University as a security officer for MSS. We are building our own house and getting married next year (both around the same time, we must be mad!). Once building is complete we are making a bee-line straight to a shelter or breeder to get ourselves a beautiful Golden Retriever (Maple) and a handsome German Shepard (Cider)…yep we have already named them and we talk about them all the time like they are already part of the family :D

As house sitters we would offer you an incredibly trustworthy, reliable, responsible and reasonable couple who will take exceptionally good care of your sacred space and your furry family members. We will be available as of mid April 2017 - October 2017 and would love and appreciate the opportunity to help someone out as much as they would be helping us out :)

We can provide any references you require and will be looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully touching base soon.

Kindest and warmest regards,
Mel & Andrew


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, Hobart

Dear Homeowners,

My name is Annie and I'm 53 years old. I would love you to choose me to look after your beloved pets.
I'm Australian and recently married a wonderful man who lives in Florence, Italy. I sold my home in Australia 4 years ago and moved to Florence. Since moving to Italy I come back to Australia every year as I get very home sick...

We have decided that we want to purchase an apartment and live in NSW in approximately 4 years, so I'm looking for a pet sit whilst I look for a potential apartment to purchase to rent out. My husband will stay in Italy as he needs to work, so it will just be me.

I will be home every night, only out some days whilst looking at apartments.

I'm extremely clean and tidy and would look after your home as it was my own. In Australia I worked as a Marriage Celebrant and an Image Consultant for over 20 years. I was a home owner for 30 years. I pride myself on being reliable and trustworthy. Your pets and home would be lovingly cared for by me. I don't smoke or drink.

I have been petsitting for over 10 years now all over Australia and now in Europe. I have also worked for a professional pet sitting service based in Tasmania, called Kimberly's pet sitting service for the last 5 years. I have had 4 dogs and two cats of my own. After my last pet passed away I fostered dogs from the dog's home to enable them to be adopted. Such a rewarding experience! As a longtime homeowner myself I can deal with any practical problems that may arise.

I always keep in contact with owners regarding their pets when they are away to allay any worries. I usually send photos or videos, or use skype or facetime if preferred. You can have as much or as little contact as you wish. I know that your pets are part of your family and I will 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.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.

I have attached references, photos and a police check.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Dates available, Anytime between November 2017 and April 2018.

Regards, Annie

  • Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba & South Eastern, Bundaberg & Wide Bay, Mackay & Whitsundays, Adelaide, Hobart, Launceston, Devonport, Melbourne

I am a dependable mature age retired lady who would like to explore other destinations in Australia, while enjoying the company of pets. I have owned pets (and a house) all my adult life and enjoy the companionship a pet gives. I live slightly inland on the Sunshine Coast and I have experienced several successful house/pet sits. I am quiet living, responsible and trustworthy & and enjoy having a tidy house. I have always been a devoted dog owner & so much appreciate their companionship and find pleasure in walking them. As gardening is an interest I am aware of watering needs etc. Other interests include singing (with a choir), travel & other cultures and being passionate about the environment. I volunteer with a Greening Aust. group. I have been a registered sitter with Happy House Sitters for some years (this can be verified with Ruth) and have had several successful sits caring for pets and their homes, mostly in Qld. I can supply contact details for a Referee if required.



I currently live and work in Melbourne, living in a share household. I house sit as I also enjoy having time to myself. I also love caring for pets. Over the past years I have sat on many occasions with many homeowners asking me back to sit for them.

I will take really good care of your pets. I genuinely enjoy both cats and dogs. I Like taking dogs for walks and offering lots of affection. Same for cats too...except the walking.

Will also take good care of your property and leave it in an excellent condition.

I have excellent references. A police check. I don't smoke.
I am a friendly respectful guy who is very clean and tidy
Cheers, Patrick

Jacqueline & Georgina



  • Melb. Inner suburbs

For the past few years I have spent more time overseas than in Australia, predominantly in New York. When I return to Melbourne each year, I have a full list of friends, and friends of friends who 'book me in' to House/Dog/Cat sit for them whenever they will be away from home and would prefer not to put their much loved pets in Kennels.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this lifestyle and appreciate the responsibility that comes with it, so I decided to join Happy Housesitters a few years ago.

I have looked after many lovely cats and dogs - labradoodles, staffies, westies,weimaranas,etc.
Moving around suits me, I am very used to it. I have been self-employed for 30 years working as an Interior Decorator, and an Artist (painter). These days my work travels with me - via my laptop and iPhone.

I make a point of always leaving each home I stay in as clean and tidy as possible, with fresh milk, healthy bread and fresh fruit ready for the return of the home owner - so they don't come home to an empty fridge.

I am very active and will enjoy walking your dog, especially in off-leash parks where they can interact with other dogs. go out for business appointments, if they like the I try to spend almost 24/7 with your pets.

I have a great affection for animals and I can assure you that your beloved cat or dog would receive a lot of attention and petting from me although I never force my attention on them. Once they know I'm safe -which happens very quickly - we are great mates. Of course, I always meet the pet and their family beforehand so they ideally remember me when I arrive to stay with them.

I am in my 50's, a non-smoker and single.
There are several references on my H.H. profile you may like to read when considering entrusting me to look after your precious pets. Please feel free to contact me for a chat and possibly to meet in person.

With Thanks, Sincerely, Gwenda McDougall

Andrew & Fern

  • Melbourne


We're Andrew and Fern, a married couple from Melbourne and Southampton (UK). We've recently moved from Cardiff to Melbourne and we're hoping that house sitting will give us the chance to see a bit more of the city and figure out where we want to settle down.

Both of us have grown up with animals including dogs, cats and guinea pigs; we're longing for another pet of our own which just isn't possible at the moment so we have a lot of love and care to offer yours. We also have a vet in the immediate family who is on hand to offer advice if it happened to be needed.

We are non-smokers who live tidily, quietly, and enjoy cooking and walking when we get home from work. Work for us is based in Melbourne CBD but we're lucky enough to have the flexibility of working from home on occasions.

We're looking forward to exploring Melbourne and meeting some lovely people and pets along the way.

Andrew and Fern

Casey & Bailey

  • Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, North Eastern, North Western, Gippsland, Grampians, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

We are a young couple originally from the coastal region of Philip Island, who love the nomadic lifestyle and the plethora of fresh and exciting opportunities that it can entail! One reason why we think house sitting is a terrific idea is because of the way in which it connects people to places so readily, as well as the peace of mind that home and pet owners can acquire through finding somebody who is willing and ready to love and cherish both their fury friends and the sacred space that is their home. We both individually study from home, so we are pretty tied to our laptops at times! In saying that, we are always looking out for any opportunity to further our knowledge on different landscapes/places and the people / cultures that inhabit them. We eventually would like to travel worldwide and immerse ourselves in everything that the globe has to offer, but for the time being, being able to explore our own backyard would be a little win for us.

We look forward to hearing from you!
Warm regards, Bailey and Casey.


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hello, I am a responsibly and tidy sitter who loves animals, especially cats and dogs. After my own cat passed away a couple of years ago I had fostered homeless cats. Now I am looking to save some money by caring for your animal in your home. As a nurse I can provide a police check and I can also provide references from previous house sits. I am available for long and short term assignments.


  • Melbourne

Hi. my name is Sue and my partners name is Lloyd. We have recently moved from Perth to Melbourne where my 3 daughters and grandson live. I am a retired Teacher Assistant and Lloyd is a retired University Lecturer. I own my own home in Perth so I am used to caring for a home and gardens. We are very neat. houseproud, health conscious, energetic, and most important we both love dogs. We will be housesitting over the next 12 months until we sell up and buy a place in Melbourne. I have always owned dogs and my last companion was a beautiful cocker spaniel who was with me for 14 years. As we are retired we would be around the house a lot of the time to take your dog for walks, keep him company, and give him lots of cuddles. I am happy to chat on the phone and answer any questions you may have. Cheers Sue


  • Sydney, Central Coast

I am a recent skilled migrant (software engineer) from Russia with permanent residency status, and am looking to house sit until I am joined by my wife and our cat in September. The cat has to undergo a long and expensive process before he too will migrate to Australia! It is of the utmost importance to me to create good relations with people in my new country and I think this makes me an excellent prospect as a house sitter.

I have undergone exhaustive investigations into my good character and have passed all tests set by the government, including my language skills. I have a very strong sense of responsibility both in my work and personal life and have broad experience with pets. In particular we had fish, a ferret, a small dog (dachshund) and cats. I am also a good gardener, having spent two months with my grandmother every summer in my childhood learning to help her and was rewarded with my own plot.

I am neat non-smoker and living a very quiet life in these early days in my new country. I miss my cat very much and it gives me much pleasure to look after the pets and gardens of others. I can be relied upon completely to take your instructions and treat your home and animals as if they were my own.

I am very happy to supply excellent house sitting references:

Unfortunately, as I'm doing an arts course, I need a lot of light in the morning. That is to say, I can sit for you only if your house is light-filled.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,

Joyce & Brian

  • Sydney

We are a retired couple who stay in the beautiful Isle of Skye in Scotland. We are coming to Sydney in November 2017 for 12 to 14 weeks spending some of our time with our daughter, her partner and our 3 year old grandson. Although we have only house sat in Scotland for friends, my husband and I have completed about 12 house exchanges , 7 of them in Australia. Quite a few of our exchangers have mentioned how clean and tidy we have left their homes.
we have 3 self catering apartments on our property, which can be viewed on our website Reviews can be read on Tripadvisor property no 3676647.
As cat owners jointly for 40 years, we would be happy to care for any cats or other small pets.
In the summer, we spend a lot of time in our garden and are self sufficient in vegetables for a good part of the year and would be happy to water and tend a garden where required.
We both like reading and going for not too strenuous walks and are interested in bird watching and other wildlife. Our other great interest is good food.
You have our assurance that your house would be cared for as our own and any minor maintenance attended to.
References can be supplied on request.

Meagan & ALBERTO

  • Melbourne

Hi we are Meagan and Alberto. We are a non-smoking couple in our early-to-mid 30’s, who will look after your home as you do. We are an excellent team and proud of living an efficient, clean and organised lifestyle. Meagan (30 years old) was born in Melbourne, and is a Health Promotion Project Officer for a community health service. Alberto (34 years old) was born in Rome, Italy, works as a Project Coordinator for a construction company. We have been together for 5 years living both in Italy and Melbourne. We have both grown up with pets (cats and dogs) and we do love, being outdoors and gardening. Meagan already has experience as a house sitter and Alberto coordinates holiday rentals in Italy and so he has a good understanding of property maintenance requirements. Meagan has a shorter working day, so will easily be able to take you dog for walks before and after work. On weeknights we generally like to stay home and cook. On weekends, we like to be outdoors, so weather permitted we’ll look to take your dog on an excursion. Our interests: all things italian, cooking, sport, movies, photography, camping, being outdoors and being with friends and family. We see house sitting as an activity that provides a mutual benefit to the homeowner and to the sitters. We will look after your home, garden and pets they way you would. We are house sitting to save money for a deposit on our own home, to experience various suburbs and communities across Melbourne and to demonstrate that there are different ways of living ie. a) with few possessions and b) with trust in people to look after your best interests without an exchange of money. We are most interested in house sitting roles for at least 3 weeks in duration. For any roles over 1 month we are happy to pay for our use of internet, electricity and gas. We believe this is a fair agreement. What we can provide: Police checks, House sitting, rental, personal and professional references. We are happy to meet you multiple time before you decide that we are the sitters for you. If you would like us to get to know your pets before you leave we’re happy to come over for a play. What we promise: To stay in regular contact with you while you’re away. We can send photo updates of your home, garden and/or pets; Skype is even an option. To do as you ask. Let us know how you do things at home, and we will continue to do them in the same way. We are quick learners and respect that you know what is best. To respond responsibly and appropriately to any unforeseen events, communicating with you along the way. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to hear more about us.

Kirsty & Jon

  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. NW suburbs, Syd. Upper N Shore

We are very pet friendly, clean and tidy professionals looking to stay in new places and save some money. We both grew up with cats and dogs and one of us was on a dairy farm for 13 years, so we have plenty of experience taking care of animals! Homeowners can expect their property to be well maintained, clean, neat and tidy. We both have experience housesitting both cats and dogs, in houses and apartments. We are pretty low key and enjoy nights in, cooking and relaxing with a movie.

We have also house sat in NZ and below is the link to our NZ profile page, with an endorsement from a recent house sit:

We look forward to hearing from you!
