  • Sydney

I am 55 years young at heart,a retired Care home owner for the elderly of 20 years,and will be joining my daughter who moved to eastern suburbs Sydney 5 years ago. My interests include Architecture,renovating period properties,a real foodie,gardening and long walks,a non smoker and have police checks.
I love the flexibility that house sitting allows me to explore and experience the globe,whilst I want to travel a lot I cant be a pet owner at this moment in time but love the idea I can be a pseudo pet owner and take care of your pets - flexibility great. I also love the fact that house sitting we are both helping each other out :) I have owned and cared for pets of my own and can understand the importance of animals in peoples lives.


  • VIC

I am a mature, non-smoking, semi-retired professional engineer currently living in Highett, Melbourne and working for the City of Kingston. I am currently saving for my own home and so would love to look after yours to help me reach my savings goal to facilitate this. Having owned my own home, I am mindful of what is needed to look after a home and its gardens. I have grown up caring for pets and love the company of animals. I have house-sat for appreciative clients and diligently cared for cats, dogs and plants/gardens whilst keeping homes neat and tidy. I have trained dogs to a high level and kept racing pigeons as a lad and so I am confident that I would be able to take great care of yours pets, whatever they might be.
I am available for any length of house sit and can provide both personal and professional references. I have a police clearance and even have an Australian Government Security Vetting Agency Baseline security clearance. I am a caring, responsible and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your property. I am available to sit at short notice. I love peace and my own company. I have excellent references which will be provided on request so why not give me a call so we can meet and you can decide for yourself?

  • Melbourne


My name is Stephanie and I have recently moved to Melbourne to start my internship for a production company.

House sitting would really benefit me as I am currently in a transitional period. It would also benefit the home owner/tenant(s) as I am a reliable, clean and organised person. I would make sure that your home is in its best condition in your absence so you won't have to stress.

When it comes to pets I have a long history of dog walking and pet sitting (I also have a dog walker profile on Mad Paws). Not only is the company of animals a joy but also a huge responsibility. I would look after your pet as if they were my own.

I have house sat in the past and am currently house sitting for my brother. In terms of work, fortunately my work allows me to choose which days I can come into the office and only do 3 hours a day. I am usually either writing at home or going out for yoga or a run so I will have plenty of time to attend to your pet's needs.

I hope I can house sit for you and please let me know if you have any questions.


  • Sydney, Central Coast, South Coast

Hi, I work 9 to 5 and have been housesitting for 2 years and love it. I live a quiet life and am very happy to care for your house and pets while you are away. More than happy to meet you to see if I'm suitable for house sit. I've sucessfully cared for cats, dogs, chooks, bunnys, birds, swimming pools and gardens. If your pet is happy and safe during the day, I will be available to tend to their needs every morning & night and weekends.
Hope to meet you soon
Cheers Chris


  • Sydney

Hello! My name is Andrea and I'm a young professional looking to house sit for a few months to save some money and cut down on on my possessions.

I am an animal lover with experience looking after my own and other people's pets. You can rely on me to wash and groom, walk, feed and cuddle your pets while you're away!

I'm a clean and tidy person (thanks, mum!), I don't smoke and enjoy cooking, reading and watching movies.

I am new to house sitting, but have rented for several years and have always received my bond back. I have great respect for people's property and homes, and would love the opportunity to look after yours.

My work requires me to have a police check and I'm happy to provide character references. I'd also love to meet up with you or have a chat over the phone!


  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland

Good evening, thank you for choosing to find a little more about me. I am a single Scottish lady of nearly 50 years old. I have a full time middle management job in the healthcare industry which I have had for some years. I am a non smoker and don't drink much either. I have a small group of well behaved friends whom I tend to meet up with away from home. I grew up with a Labrador and have also had a Spaniel as well as cats. Since moving to Australia, I have lived in rented accommodation, my real estates have never had any complaints about me as a tenant. My current owner has commented on the way I have kept his house and improved his garden/yard at my own expense.
I would be pleased to supply you with personal references and a current Police check on request.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I would consider it a privilege to look after your house, garden and pets.

  • Melbourne, Macedon Ranges, North Eastern, North Western, Gippsland

I am a qualified dog trainer using ‘positive’ methods for nearly five years. I love animals and have had plenty of experience taking care of them, for example, I have work experience caring for pets at a cattery and dog kennels. As a bonus I can offer behavioural training services for your domestic pets for free.
I have also looked after horses and sheep. I lived on a rural property for 7 years working at a private sanctuary where my animal duties included feed, medication and sanitisation for native wildlife in breeding programs and under Vet care. I also maintained fences, getting around on a quad bike. My current part-time work allows me to be at home most of the week and I can do this from anywhere with good mobile phone service and within a couple of hours drive to Melbourne for the occasional visit. I previously worked as a professional in science. I am a responsible, trustworthy, active female in my 50s. I do not partake in smoking, drinking or drugs and have no interest in partying.
Having owned a house myself I understand the importance of security and respecting peoples private spaces and will take good care of your home. I am very happy to look after your plants and mow the lawn. I have recently been living with Mum and renovating her property and I have a practical hand so I am also useful should the gutters clog up, a tap washer leak or a paling fall off the fence…
Now that my mother’s house is finished and sold, I am currently between homes and available to housesit from November 2016 and will certainly consider extended sits. I am looking for a home that would welcome me and my 6 year old highly trained and well socialised neutered Vizsla x Lab who is playful but mature, has no doggie smell and is beloved by my mother’s cats. He would love to cheer up your dog and offer security to your other pets. He is familiar with hoofed livestock and shows them respect. We can have them meet before you make up your mind.
I won’t use your phone unless for an emergency. I am clean and tidy and live lightly using minimal power and water. I can keep you in touch with your pets’ using Skype or send photos and videos. Referees available upon request.

*Current Police application as one of their PSOs;very extensive & in depth screening process, 3-6mths in all.
*Currently not actively working so your pets will have near 24/7 care.

Someone made me work this out recently; I've actually been doing this for near 10 years now! (on & off) Over 50 sits.

I'm Stephani - non smoking female, Executive Assistant for a Deputy Secretary and Executive Director which means time management & organisation skills. I really enjoy discovering new suburbs and people I sit for, especially my regulars! 12 animals is the most I've cared for, I have one with 10 presently.

I started sitting as a way to discover Melbourne, shared a home here for 3 years then several sits lined up for couples I've sat for previously, so I then moved. I've met many wonderful people and visited places I've never been before. I'm housetrained! I care for your home & pets as I would my own & very respectful of peoples needs, including where your home and valued animals are concerned.

Owned pets all my life, worked in a Vet Surgery, done many house sits, often for months whilst owners are overseas and for repeat families. These have involved voluntarily cleaning entire house, walking pets, mail collection. My sits have included large animals & several at once, rescue animals, dogs, cats, geese, chickens, rabbit, guinea pigs, fish and turtles.

I look forward to meeting you!

Helen & Tony

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

We are two retired, active, music and food loving schoolteachers with a penchant for travelling and enjoying new experiences. We have been involved in house and pet sitting for many years and in many places throughout Australia and overseas. While we have a home in Adelaide, we enjoy a nomadic lifestyle in our motorhome, which makes it unfair to have pets of our own. Housesitting allows us to indulge our love of animals and over the years we have cared for many dogs, cats, birds, horses, sheep, goats, cattle and the like, with dogs, whether big and boisterous or small and cuddly, being our special love. We are certainly respectful, house-proud sitters, with Tony being a dab hand at housework and gardening while Helen is something of an expert at quality control, and you can rest assured that your property and pets will be cared for as if they are our own. We will happily provide you with contact details for phone referees if required.

Chloe & David

  • Melbourne

Hi there! We are Chloe and David, a Melbourne based couple you can trust to look after your home and pets while you are away. We are clean and tidy young professionals who love cooking, keeping active and of course animals!
We house sit full time and have developed a good understanding of what is required to look after your home and pets. We have current police checks, are a registered business, and can provide references.

We house sit full time and therefore have a good understanding of what is required to look after your home and pets. We provide our own linen, pillows and towels, and prefer to meet with the home owners prior to your departure to discuss and log all requirements while you are away. David works at St Vincent's hospital, while Chloe works two days per week in children's health and spends a lot more time at home. This means your house is secure and your pets are kept company! We lead a fairly active lifestyle and are both non-smokers, meaning daily walks and exercise for your pups is all part of our routine.

We are currently house sitting to save for our very own home!

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

Hi, I’m a 45 year old professional, mother of two boys and previous owner of many and varied pets. I am currently on hiatus from fulltime parenting duties as my children live with their father in Canberra. I am looking to get a taste of various Sydney locations and a friend who housesits suggested this would be a great way to do it!I am a Sydney sider but haven’t lived here for a while as my ex-husband was an Army Officer so we travelled around the country and the world.

I am a proud and well-respected public servant (Commonwealth Government) and hope that this would indicate to you that I am honest and responsible (naturally I think so).

From a young age I‘ve enjoyed being around all sorts of family animals from dogs and cats to fish and chickens (they were not my favourite though). As an adult we had two beautiful dogs, the first was a kelpie cross cattle whose life was sadly cut short at three on the operating table. The second was a staffie cross kelpie who we adopted out to another family after being posted out of location with the Army. We adopted both dogs as puppies so understand the challenges associated with young dogs. Also, as you can tell from the breeds, I am accustomed to medium to large sized dogs with boundless energy and know how important daily walking is for them. But be it small or large, I just find dogs delightful. I am an avid walker and also have reasonable flexible work hours so can walk them in the morning and evening.

More recently I was the proud ‘mummy’ of a gorgeous, silky black rabbit, ‘Philip’, for two years who is now enjoying his time with a colleague’s children. I realised I don’t have any pictures of me with my pets because I was always the one taking the pictures (familiar story for any mum…) so I have included one of Philip with my youngest son and then a picture of me with both my boys.

My neighbours have two cats and a dog and I often look after them while they are away and sometimes help them take the pets to to the vet.

In typical Virgo style, I am a neat, tidy and organised person and I will look after your house as if it was my own. I will leave it as I found it, possibly with a box of chocolates left behind… I have a partner; we do not live together but he may occasionally visit while I housesit.

I am happy to have a chat over the phone or via email whenever you’d like.

Talk soon,

Yvonne & John

  • VIC

We are a non-smoking couple in our 60s. John has a Security License and works in security, sometimes on shift work. Yvonne is a voluntary ESL Teacher. We are houseproud and consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets and garden. We are available for any length of housesitting. We have had many employment situations where we have looked after property - Camp Managers, Relieving Caretakers of a large neighbouring Apartment Building, and Caretaker of a large church complex (John). We also have Police Checks. We can supply references.

Joan & Philip

  • Sydney, Central Coast, East Lake Macquarie, Lower Hunter Valley, Port Stephens, Upper Hunter Valley, West Lake Macquarie, South Coast

Available Dates: various dates from August 2017
Mature, non- smoking, active, semi –retired, married couple.
Previous house sit experience with 'Happy House sitters' and private pet/house sits through family friends (please see our pet sit references on the housesitters site).
We moved to Australia last year under the parent visa scheme as our family are already Australian citizens and live locally in Sydney.
We are reliable, honest, non-smoking and still own our own home (with large garden) in England (owned for 35 years) so are very capable of maintaining a good, clean standard of care and security when looking after your home and pet(s), as if our own. We previously owned our own pets over the years (dog/cat/rabbit) and understand how it feels to be away from your pets and property. Please see the references posted on happy house sitters.
We are currently housesitting until we decide where we want to live permanently. Our Children are professionals who have lived in Sydney for 12 and 5 years respectively and we have previously visited them every year so are familiar with the local surroundings.
We really enjoy the house sit experience, having a 'sense of routine and responsibility’ and yet still being around to help the family out . References can also be provided from the private house sits if required. We like to sample life in surrounding local areas & like to offer 'something back' with a professional service.
We will have plenty of time to attend to any pet care/house jobs in the mornings, but would probably be out during the middle of the days exploring the local area/visiting family and be back early evening for walks/feeds etc and be around during the evenings. We have our own car if needed for vet care etc.
We offer a professional service, would only bring minimum luggage with us and could easily vacate the property if required in an emergency, to stay with family members.
We are both active (run and bike) and are able to do any house jobs, basic maintenance, gardening and pet care. We can send texts/ pictures/updates if required whilst you are away.
Philip is a qualified electrical contractor/builder so can attend most maintenance issues if you wished in an emergency, should any arise.
I worked in University Administration for 20 years so have experience in confidentiality and security awareness.
We are happy to meet you anytime prior to the housesit and will provide you with our mobile number to arrange if you wish.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.
We have UK and Australian police checks.
Thank you
Joan and Philip Jackson

Veronika & Ladislav

  • Sydney, Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD, TAS, WA


We are are Veronika (30) and Ladislav (32), a couple of animal lovers and experienced sitters (we can provide 7 verified references). We come from the Czech Republic, but for the past two years we've been traveling the world and house sitting while working online from wherever we are.

We are responsible, non-smokers and definitely not party people. In our free time, we enjoy being outside, keeping ourselves fit by walking, running, hiking and cycling, Veronika is also practising yoga. When we are tired from sports, we like to relax by reading a good book.


We both come from families of animal lovers which naturally transferred over us – Veronika grew up with 2 dogs, a very clever crossbreed saved from the street, and a big black Labrador. Ladislav, on the other hand, is the "cat person" in the relationship as his family has always had cats (all of them with funny names like „Ozzy“ after Ozzy Osborne or „Spock“ after the Star Trek character :-)).

During our previous house sits we took care of eight lovely dogs, four cats and one rabbit. We think that animals, as well as humans, need to feel that they are loved - and that is something we can promise we can deliver. As we both like being active, we welcome all energetic dogs that can show us around and give us yet another reason for that long walk, hike or run. We can send you the references from our past sit on request, the page does not allow us to upload it or add a link.


We both work from home (Veronika in online marketing and Ladislav in IT), which means we will keep your furry friends company for most of the day so that they don't have the time to miss you - and you don't have to worry about the security of the house, either.


In our previous sits we took care of watering the plants, mowing the lawn and maintaining the pool. We also don't mind light garden work provided there is an instruction session beforehand - we want to make sure we don't mistake your favorite plant for bothersome weed!


Currently we are available for sits in WA, NT, QLD, NSW and TAS from September 6 to December 5 and alternatively from Jan 7 on (we have a month long sit scheduled in Torquay, VIC, commencing on December 7 and ending on Jan 6). We prefer sits that are at least 2 weeks long, within proximity of public transportation or with car provided. The only thing we really need a reliable wifi connection :)

Thank you for your time reading our application and we look forward to hearing from you!


  • Melbourne

Available for Melbourne:

I'm an EXPERIENCED (sitting since 2012), and WELL ORGANISED house sitter and a FUR KID LOVER... I'll CARE for your home and pets just as you do yourself, and follow the ROUTINES already in place. My GREEN THUMB will keep your greenery well maintained in your absence. You need PEACE OF MIND leaving your worldly possessions in the hands of a stranger.

I'm a photographer and I work from home, so furry friends get lots of company in the daytime, and your home is secure too. I'm a non smoker, and LOVE to arrive to and leave behind a clean and tidy house.

The trick to a great house-sit is:
1. laying out expectations from the start including animal care, cleaning, house instructions
2. having a good mutual vibe
3. communication from time to time during the sit

I've been sitting since 2012 and tend to get asked back as the years roll by! You can read my references from Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Berlin.

Please view my references, dates spreadsheet and short selfie video attached to my profile, or copy/paste these links in a new browser window:

And a quick selfie video to say hi:

I look for a home away from home. Let's see if I am suitable for your needs in Melbourne and surrounds, and if we are a good fit, so drop me a line or give me a tingle anytime.
:) Beth Jennings

  • Melbourne

I am a single 28 year old female hoping to be considered to look after your lovely home.
I have been employed for 8 years at ESTA as a Calltaker and Dispatcher (Emergency Services- Ambulance 000).
I've been housesitting for the last 3 months in Chirnside Park, looking after a large house and 2 pets while my Aunty and Uncle have been overseas.
I'm intending to do some travels of my own - my employer has approved 13 months of unpaid leave commencing in January 2018. My intention is to house sit from now until then, to save as much money as I can, and avoid having to worry about finding a short lease and/or any early exit fees.

Rental history:
Prior to my 3 mouths house sitting;
I was living in a bungalow behind a property in Ringwood East - the family had 4 children and 2 pets.
12 month lease of a property in South Melbourne as the sole tenant.
2 year lease of a unit in Glen Iris, on a joint lease.
I have gotten my full bond back on both leases.

I am a shift-worker on a rotational roster, I live a relatively quiet existence, especially while on shift.
I'm studying medical transcription and terminology as I'll be working remotely as a transcriptionist while I travel, so my time off is spent studying, brunching with friends, visiting my nephew, sisters, and parents, swimming, walking, watching Netflix and catching the occasional movie.

It would be lovely to fine a home that allows me to stay in one place for an extended period of time, as I'll be moving around so frequently while I'm travelling next year.

I am so appreciative of the opportunity to house sit, that I show my thanks through caring for the home better than as if it were my own.
My intention is for the home owner to always return to their residence in better condition than when they left it.
I am conscious of power / water / gas usage, and would be mortified at the thought of the homeowner receiving a large bill, so I would endeavour to keep the costs down to the best of my ability. As a shift worker, I understand the importance of sleep, and would never incur any noise complaints from the neighbours.

I am able to provide references upon request, and any other information you would like to know :)

Leisah & Karl

  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast
  • Reduced Contact

By way of introduction, we are experienced house, pet, garden and pool sitters with excellent references. We are a non-smoking, professional couple, who love animals. We have a 17-year-old daughter who has recently completed year 12 at St Margaret's Anglican Girls School, Ascot. She has secured a place at the Australian National University (Canberra) to pursue Law in 2017.

Having owned our own home with pool and garden, we understand the enormous responsibility entrusted to house carers. We are animal lovers, having owned dogs, cats, birds and a horse in the past.

Karl has been in his role as a senior network engineer for 20 years with a high-profile telecommunications company. Leisah has previously held executive positions in the cosmetics sector but is now pursuing online study and so spends the majority of her time at home.

We offer high-quality home and pet care and have undertaken multiple house sitting assignments over the last five years with repeat business. This has included homes in Ascot, Camp Hill, Bulimba, Wavell Heights and even a small farm in Montville. Our experience in house sitting ensures we offer unparalleled care of your home, garden, pool and of course your animals.

We look forward to meeting you and discussing your house sitting needs!

Michael & Di

  • Central Coast, Darwin, Sunshine Coast, Mackay & Whitsundays, Melbourne, Northern Vic

We are a mature non-smoking couple with a responsible outlook. Our three delightful children are now independent so we have an empty nest and itchy feet. We have rented out our own home and have rented others homes so we understand the need to look after someone's home. We are very trustworthy, clean, tidy and reliable and would treat you and your home with utmost respect. Whilst not yet retired ourselves we have a very mobile business (Ice Cream Van) and would love the opportunity to explore different regions whilst selling Ice Creams. Our family are animal lovers so over the years we have had a lot of experience looking after animals. Different animals we have had include: dogs (little spoilt inside dogs and larger outside dogs), cats, chooks, ducks, rabbits, turkeys and a turtle. Sadly, at present we have no animals. We like to keep some fitness and go to the gym so walking dogs would be a pleasure. We would welcome the opportunity to meet you so you can get to know us. Please don't hesitate to phone or email. References and referees available upon request.
Warmest Regards,
Michael and Di Chapman

Jessica & Peter

  • Melbourne

If you're after a responsible, reliable, clean and trustworthy couple, with their dog in tow (an equally friendly and easy going schnoodle called Reuben who loves all animals); to look after your home, pets and garden; then we'd be honoured to do so! After having spent the last 2 years living in Gippsland, running a large country hotel, we'd relish the opportunity to assist as caretakers, for a smaller venture like your home - with pride and care - whilst we work out where in Melbourne we'd like to live. Professional, active non-smokers who love animals, gardening, exercise and having 'down time', why not give us a call and we can see how we all get along!?

Leanne & Peter

  • QLD

We are an Aussie and English couple and have just returned from 9 years living in the UK. We are both high school teachers and are having a break as we change countries. We dearly miss our collie that was not able to come with us and love spending time with other dogs. I have taken a couple of years off from teaching and trained as a canine massage and rehabilitation specialist (like a physio for dogs, my skills translate to cats and other animals too) and have been working with and at vets for the past couple of years treating their clients for muscular issues. You can be assured that you animals will be in good hands and looked after well.

We are non-smokers and love to keep fit so going for walks/runs is part of our daily routine. We are both very house proud and are also very handy so your house will be kept clean, neat and tidy. We love the coast but are keen to explore what Australia has to offer again. We are hoping to move to Brisbane or the Sunny Coast in the near future so any long house sits would also be possible, especially next year.
