Jacinta & Lola

  • Sydney

Hi there! We are Jacinta and Lola, a responsible pair of friends, both 27 and from NZ. We have lots of experience housesitting dogs and cats, both in Australia and NZ and Lola grew up on a farm so has experience caring for horses, chickens and bees.

We see housesitting as a great way to spend time with animals as we cannot commit to owning our own while exploring more of Sydney.

Jacinta works 9-5 with the Government, while Lola works nights as a care worker and a musician. We are a great team as someone will usually be home to look after the pets, Lola during the day and Jacinta at night. We are clean and respectful and are both trying to get fit, so walking animals will help us out with this!

We have previously rented houses in Sydney and know how to be respectful tenants and guests. We are also happy to do gardening and cleaning jobs.

As we both work in community services we both have valid police checks etc and we are non-smokers. We are able to supply references upon request.

We are looking forward to our next housesitting opportunity!


  • Melbourne

Hello there,

I am a Single non-smoking Professional looking to Housesit/Petsit in the Melbourne area.
I am excited to be relocating back to Melbourne to start a new job early June & am looking to housesit for a bit & get a better feel for the greater Melbourne. Before I choose a Suburb to call home.

I am a Cat Lover & have always had Cats in my life. My 2 Daughters live in Melbourne & one has our family Cats (pictured) Kimba & Cooper. 2 rescues we adopted when we lived in Mornington back in 2010. I miss them terribly & will adopt another rescue one day when I resettle.

Looking after Cats is not a chore for me. Happy to follow whatever instructions & routine you decide. Feeding, cleaning the litter tray & ideally, they will like a snuggle sometimes. I have often Cat-sat for friends whilst they were on Holidays & have always enjoyed it. I am super clean & will keep your place clean as if it were my own. Happy to communicate updates as frequently as you like.

I will be starting a new job in Camberwell & will be a homebody most of the time outside of work hours for the first few months. So your Cat will have me home every night, with no-one else staying over.

Please email or call me for a chat about the possibility of sitting for your pet/s. I will be flying in & out of Melbourne up until I move there on the 1st June. So happy to meet you & your pet/s to see if we are a good fit.

Here is my LinkedIn profile :

Michael & Cindy

  • Brisbane

Leisah & Karl

  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

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!

The 10 month old lives in Neutral Bay.We belong to a house swap association and have done swaps in England, Scotland, Germany, France, Italy, New Zealand and Turkey. In Australia we have swapped in Perth, Ulladulla, Blue Mountains and Bribie Island. We can contact these homeowners if you need references. As house swappers we are used to leaving lots of details for those we are swapping with about absolutely everything in the area and the house. We are used to leaving the house exactly as we found it.
We have lived in 4 different places since we were married in 1974 and have resided in this house for 31 years. During that time we have added an extension, subdivided and renovated the older part of the house.
We are keen gardeners and embrace the energy saving technology with solar power and rainwater tanks.
We have had 3 golden Labradors over our married life the oldest living to 15 years. We recently babysat our daughter's beaglier while they went on holidays and walked it each day when the baby was new and we were in Sydney. We also had it for a month over the Christmas period at our place.

I volunteer weekly at the local primary school cooking with the grade 3/4 Stephanie Alexander Kitchen garden program. I also play tennis and badminton in local ladies competitions. I like to cook and make preserves. We have our own vegetable garden and several fruit trees. I belong to a cottage garden group and have a Diploma in Floral Art.
I was born in Gippsland and lived on a dairy farm for the first 17 years before attending university in Melbourne.
I volunteer at the Genealogical Society and am very keen on family history. I like to swim, kayak and am always trying new little landscaping projects. I am an avid reader and like the old style of books in hard copy. In my younger days I played football, basketball and cricket. I am passionate about red wine and good coffee.
I was born in Ivanhoe in Melbourne and went to university in Melbourne. The rest of my family moved to Queensland in the 1980's.

We are both non-smokers and have joined this group as our daughter lives in an apartment in Neutral Bay Sydney. Her husband's parents live in Belgium. This baby was naturally conceived and we are all so excited for them after a long time on IVF. Now the baby has arrived there is no spare room and bed for us.


  • TAS, Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs, Geelong, Grampians, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hi there :)
I have house sat for friends and colleagues in the past two years. I'm a single, mature person (non smoker) who is reliable, super clean and a bit of a dog whisperer. I love all animals but have owned dogs all my life. Happy to walk and play/cuddle with them. I have fostered and retrained rescue dogs. I have a rescue dog (male kelpie) who loves other dogs and is very passive. I like to bring him with me if suitable, but can leave him with a friend.
I work part time and have my own vehicle. Happy to water & weed garden, collect mail etc. On long stays of 3+ months, I am happy to tackle a "spring cleaning" job, if that is helpful.
I can provide house sitting refs and I have a current Police check. Prefer house sits of a week or longer.
I look forward to hearing from you,

Rachel & Matthew

Paul & Janet

  • Central Coast, Hunter Valley, North Coast, South Coast, Rural/Regional NSW, South Eastern, TAS

Hi I'm Paul and I am now retired after finishing my career as a Town Planner working in Local Government. My wife (Janet) is currently working as a Teacher’s Aide. We own our home and have lived on the beautiful Sunshine Coast for 20 years after living in Melbourne, however we love to travel and experience new places! Our 3 children have grown up and have moved on to live in other parts of Australia.

We have one dog, an 11 year old Australian Terrier named Ziggy. We share the “doggy duties” of daily walking, feeding, and of course, picking up droppings. We had an older Cocker Spaniel but she is no longer with us. Our cat also lived lived to the very old age of 21. We have arrangements in place for our dog to stay elsewhere so any house sit by us at your home would not involve our dog.

We have done several house swaps here in Australia and overseas and a couple of these involved taking care of cats. Paul has now completed several house sits minding cats & dogs and keeping the host's home and garden neat and tidy. We now wish to do house sitting so we can stay a little longer than typical house swaps.
We are house and garden proud and understand what is required to take care of your home and your pets.
We are both non-smokers. References and Police Check can be supplied upon request.


I am a 50 year old single non smoking woman, wanting an alternative to renting. As my sons are now independent I have the opportunity to house sit. I am overseas currently until May 27. I grew up with pets and had much loved guinea pigs for about 4 years. I know how much I loved my pets and know how precious they are to us, so will take special care of your fur babies. I am a clean, responsible, caring and respectful person and will take great care of your property for you. I haven’t any house sitting references yet but can supply a personal reference if necessary. I am happy to house sit for any length of time.

  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs

I work full time as a data analyst and research designer for a market consultancy firm in the CBD, and I currently live at home with my family. I am a very laid back, considerate and clean person whose ideal day is spent quietly reading, maybe watching some Netflix (currently devouring “The Crown”!), going to a market,
cooking, and running or doing yoga. I *love* pets, but unfortunately my current living situation doesn’t allow me to have any, but I have had both cats and dogs in the past. Housesitting gives me the opportunity to have my own space and time to myself whilst keeping very good company with pets! I have extensive experience with
housesitting, and have consistently received very warm and positive feedback. I can provide references upon request, and am always happy to chat over the phone or meet in person beforehand :)

Hi there,

I am Olivia and I am a single, 30 year old professional with no kids nor pets.

I work a 9-5pm in the Melbourne CBD for the Tourism arm of the Chamber of Commerce. I consider myself both mature and responsible. I lead an active lifestyle (reasonably sporty) so you will happily find me taking your dog for a run!

I have plenty of house sitting experience (happy to provide you with reference) and love animals (have minded cats, dogs, fish, a budgie and a rabbit!). I have house sat in Melbourne's North, South and West and am comfortable exploring and acquainting myself with new areas of Melbourne

Let's catch up for a coffee.

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

Hello, I am very keen to house sit in Sydney, a city which I've visited many times and which has much to offer. My daughter lives there too, so another reason for frequent visits. I recently stopped working as a university lecturer and currently I'm writing up a Phd at The University of Sydney. I am fastidious, tidy and would treat your home with care and respect. I have owned a black labrador and a chihuahua/terrier, very different in temperaments and personalities but equally lovable. I also like cats and I could cope with birds. I'm health, safety and security conscious as is my husband, Rob. We are vigilant about closing windows and locking doors when we go out.

In our spare time we have many interests including walking, yoga, writing, reading and visiting France most years. We like to socialise but we're not party people, preferring quieter dinner parties. I'm a sophisticated, gracious person who treats people with respect and consideration, irrespective of their background or culture. I like to think that I'm non-judgmental. I would look after pets with care and also be diligent in watering plants, putting out rubbish and keeping the place immaculate so that the homeowner returns to the home he/she left behind.

I would be the main housesitter but my husband, Rob, may join me for some or part assignments.

In New Zealand police checking is different from Australia in that the individual cannot request a check on himself/herself but we have had police clearance in the past when hosting international students. I can supply references from people who have known us for a long time and know how we live.

I'd be happy to answer any further questions. Thank you for your consideration.


  • TAS, Melbourne

Animals are my favourite people! With just under 3 years of solid house sitting experience (40 homes) and many great references, you can be confident that your precious companions will receive the best of care while you are taking a break.

To date, I have cared for over 130 animals including a variety of dogs, cats, miniature horses, chickens, fish, guinea pigs, goats and even a pair of emus!

I am a non-smoker who is clean, tidy and considerate of your home. I bring my own bedding and all consumables with me too; you can rest assured your home will be just as you left it on your return.

A current police clearance and many references are available on request.

  • Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle, Wollongong & Illawarra, Melbourne, Bendigo, Macedon Ranges, SW Vic

I'm a single, non-smoking professional happy and healthy male. After 10 years in the Melbourne suburbs I decided to move earlier this year. The problem is I'm not sure where. Thus my interest in house-sitting to explore some new areas.
My first choice is to be within a reasonable distance to the Geelong area where my elderly parents live.
I do have some flexibility as I run an online coaching program helping business people complete their projects - a laptop, phone and internet connection are all I need to keep this going. This also means I can be on-hand most days to give your pets some consistent company during the days.
I have house-sat for friends and family in the past - this has included a few dogs, a handful of cats and a budgie - they seem to be happy in my company provided I pat them and walk them (not so much the cats). I'm also happy to keep your garden going. Let me know what you need and I'll make it work.
I have references available on request and if you'd like a police check I can organise that too.

Hello my name is Sara :) I am very happy to be here on Happy Housesitters and am looking forward to many wonderful times looking after and caring for homes and pets! This is such an enriching and enjoyable thing to do!

Laughter, well-being, and happiness are such important things in life. I love new experiences, and am aware that sometimes we cannot easily go on holidays or have time to ourselves when we have pets, gardens and homes to look after. It is a great pleasure, therefore, to help home and pet owners spend time away, safe in the knowledge that their home and pets are well cared for. House sitting also allows me to spend time writing, exploring, and being in a new environment.

House sitting and looking after pets is a special focus in my life especially now. I am beginning a new journey of travelling and exploring for the next 1 – 2 years, now that my 2 sons are young adults. I am so grateful that life has presented me with this wonderful path of expanding my work and life into new areas.

I first did some house sitting several years ago, and found this to be wonderful. It is such a lovely experience to meet new home owners and to care for their home and pets. Pets bring such happiness and joy, and I have grown up with pets, and understand how special they are in our lives.

I have been loved and sat upon by my son’s cat Arthur for the past few years, and have been so grateful for his loving company. I also grew up with cats, and enjoy being with friends' pets. Owners have commented that their pets seem to gravitate towards me. This may be because of my natural inclination to want to massage them! However, I have also noticed that most pets are happy to approach me, and often want to sit close to me - or on me! - soon after we are introduced :)

For more than 20 years I have been guiding and counselling, and helping others navigate through the challenges that life can bring. A major part of my work is helping people find more ease, comfort and well-being through meditation, reflexology, yoga, intuitive massage, and more. Now I am beginning a time of writing about what I have learnt, and therefore house sitting is helping me fulfil this enjoyable activity.

I came to live in Australia in 1995 (from England), and life here has brought me many amazing experiences :) I moved to Melbourne, and it was there that I began a family with my then-husband. I built a whole garden from scratch, planting it out with native and exotic plants. I truly love nature, animals, and birds, and the ways in which they help to nurture and heal mind, body and soul. It was here that my 2 sons were born.

When my sons were little we had a hobby farm for 8 years in the Adelaide Hills. Life was busy and filled with lots of activity! I learnt so many wonderful new things during this extremely busy time of my life! Shearing, bush care, slashing, weeding, fencing, planting veggies and fruit trees, watering sheep and plants - all this alongside caring for the home and family :) It was also great when we began to have WOOFERS (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) come to stay and help.

We sold the farm so that we could spend more time travelling. This included a lot of family time travelling and camping around Australia. We also visited family and friends in England and Europe. During this time I also travelled to Egypt extensively, where I then ran tours. More recently I ran a very romantic bed and breakfast for 3 years in Aldgate, in the Adelaide Hills. This enabled me to meet many new guests, and feel the joy of providing them with a wonderfully relaxing and welcoming retreat to celebrate special occasions.

Now a wonderful new time of adventure, connecting and travelling is beginning, with the support and encouragement of my sons and many wonderful friends. Travelling brings me immense joy, and I feel truly blessed!

I'm Asher and I am 34 year old single female.

I work Mon-Fri as a Nurse at the Royal Children's Hospital close to the city and love the lifestyle of being close to cafes, parks, trams, trains and shops.

I have been renting in Nth Fitzroy for the last 1.5 years with my sister and her boyfriend. They have decided to move out together so for the moment I am living with my parents in Croydon Nth until I can find some fantastic housesitting gigs. I housesat through this website throughout 2013/2014 and loved the opportunity to meet different people, there pets and different areas around inner Melbourne. I have also done a lot of housesitting for friends, their families and friends.

I absolutely adore animals of all kind and have housesat birds, fish, cats and big and small dogs. This care included walking, grooming and playing. I have maintained big and small gardens, large and small homes in all different areas around Melbourne.

I am a clean, happy, trustworthy 33 year old and am looking to house/pet sit in areas where I can be closer to work and the CBD. Travelling back and forth from Croydon Nth takes up a lot of time and money and while I have the opportunity to have my things at my parents home, house sitting is a great option for me. References are available.

I am available to house sit from the 1st July 2016.

  • NSW, Brisbane, South Eastern

We are a french Australian couple with a toddler. We have been living in Australia for 8 years and decided to go back to France to be closer to our family for a little while this year. We are planning on coming back permanently early august 2018 towards Sydney and further along the track in north NSW / south QLD. Or perhaps straight to north NSW, no set plan at this stage ! I am in the wine industry, Bastien is manager in a consultancy that specialises on providing advice to corporate on Human Rights and Social Impacts.

We are both nature and animal lovers. We are quite handy, DYI and creative type of people. I enjoy gardening and i am interested in permaculture in particular. We like to get our hands dirty..! I have worked in various farms back in France and in Orange area NSW when i first arrived in Australia.
Bastien owned a house previously. I did some whoofing in a beautiful country eco friendly home in Orange NSW for some time and had to look after the regeneration of the natural bushland as well as some other outdoors tasks.

We are both reliable respectful people and very conscious to take care of where we live and other people's goods.
We enjoy outdoors activities, camping, are pretty sporty and healthy. We tend to eat organic as much as possible.

Our dream is to build ourselves a sustainable eco friendly natural home in a lovely peaceful piece of Earth in Australia and be virtually auto-sufficient. We want to have an alternative lifestyle basically, that will lead us to have a pleasant comfortable simple happy life without the restraints that the current model of society can impose upon people. And we want to bring up our daughter in a healthy meaningful environment.

What we are looking for at this stage from this website is a medium to long term house sitting meanwhile we look for a land and build a home.

We can provide police checks or other references if needed.
We have pet sit for 3 weeks in November 2016 through this website before leaving for France and it went very well.

Please feel free to give us a call for a chat or email us, that would be lovely!

Thanks for your interest in our profile. We are looking forward to looking after your house and more..!

Hi my name is Bec and I’m moving to Melbourne in April. I grew up on a farm in NZ & for the last 10+ years have been a nanny where at times I have done proxy parenting for a week or longer. Most of the families I have worked for have had animals which I have really enjoyed. I am clean, tidy, honest and respectful. I enjoy keeping fit & do F45 regularly, I also like getting outside & going for walks/runs. I have some references from my time as a nanny, but I haven’t house sat yet. I will be organising a recent police check in the coming days.


  • Sydney, Central Coast, Wollongong & Illawarra, Perth

Hello, my name is Emma and I would love to care and look after your home and pets.

As a former property owner, I understand the responsibilities and what it takes to care for a home. I am a single, non-smoking, professional female in my early forties.

I lead a quieter life based around healthy, conscious living. To maintain a clear mind I like to be clean and tidy. I have no pets nor children and am police cleared.

I'm Australian born, well travelled, university educated and had been living in the UK and then relocated back to Australia after receiving a terminal cancer diagnosis for my Dad who then passed away.

I love all sorts of animals and grew up with a wide variety - dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, chickens and ducks.

After many years abroad, house sitting is perfect for me as I've relocated back to Australia and would like to research different areas before deciding on where to buy and saving to buy in the process.

I'm also an animal lover and enjoy having a temporary pet as a friend who I can give love and affection to.

Having owned my own home, I understand the responsibilities and what it takes to care for a home. I am organised and efficient and come complete with a checklist to make sure we have everything covered before you leave. Your home and pets will be cared for and well looked after.

I have experience with dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, ducks, fish, lizards and even a snake (!). I have also administered medication to dogs.

I've looked after all sizes and types of homes from apartments, townhouses, stand alone homes to 1-2 acre off grid properties with reticulation systems.

I'm also a nature lover and enjoy gardening especially in the veggie patch.

I work in the CBD and sometimes from home, usually a day a week. I'm currently using public transport with no car.

I am available now so please do get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Testimonials from other sites and direct bookings:

"Emma looked after my house for 8 days. She came over wrote notes on what was needed to be done. She was keen on looking after the reptiles as well as my cats. When I came home the house was spotless, fresh sheets, made bed, and bath towels waiting for me in bathroom. Bins were emptied and animals all fed and happy. She was easily contactable and offered to send me updates if needed. Emma also took care of my plants out the back. Highly recommended, trustworthy and very clean neat and tidy. " Brenna, Aveley, WA.

"Emma was great and very diligent. Very happy to endorse her." Oliver, Perth, WA, January 2018

"We had Emma look after our house and 6 year old French Bulldog and we came back to a very tidy house and a happy, well looked after dog. Emma was great with keeping in contact for the time we were away and letting us know that everything was going well. She did a fantastic job and we would definitely recommend her if you are looking for a friendly, reliable house sitter who will take great care of your home and pets." Tim South Fremantle WA.

"I am very grateful to Emma for minding my home. Emma looked after my 2 bedroom second story apartment whilst I was overseas for over 3 weeks. During that time, Emma took care of my beloved plants, which were thriving when I returned home. I received regular communication from Emma when it was necessary, sending photos of my important mail, so I could problem solve whilst I was away, which gave me piece of mind. My home was spotlessly clean and tidy when I arrived home, especially the kitchen and living area, and it was very well cared for by Emma.
I would certainly welcome Emma into my home again, and highly recommend her as a house (and plant) sitter." Helen , Yokine, WA.

"Emma was great, really organized and sent us a pre- sitting questionnaire to make sure we had let her know everything so she didn't have to disturb us while we were away. We came back to a spotless home ad a very happy dog. We would be delighted for Emma to look after the house and Ebony again." Neil & Jean-Claude, Rozelle, NSW.

"While away on holiday Emma house sat my home. She took wonderful care of my home and pets. Max my then ailing dog which I was really worried about as he was in his last days was taken care of and given his medications. I came home to a perfectly tidy house and was really relieved she was there to take care of Max and take such good care of him in his state and Jasper my cat." Annette , Leederville, WA.

Hello, my name is Simon, I'm a single 48 year old professional, non smoker who is clean and tidy and house proud, inside and out.

I have house sat for friends and friends of theirs, which included, garden maintenance, looking after their pets and decorating / painting (they chose the colour/s).

I'm currently looking at house sitting for financial reasons (separated) and undecided where I want to reside permanently.

Would pay for utilities in your absence.

Hope to hear from you.

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
