Hannah & Ross


  • Melb. SE suburbs, SE Vic

Hello, we are Hannah and Ross, a caring, pet-loving couple who would be more than happy to look after your home and pets while you are away.

We have been house-sitting for the past few months for family and friends on the Mornington Peninsula. When we are not house-sitting we stay with Hannah's parents in Mornington and care for their gorgeous labradoodle Dolly, which has given us the opportunity to begin saving for our very first home. We have stayed in and cared for some beautiful houses and gotten to look after some wonderful animals, whilst also getting to offer home-owners peace of mind that their houses and pets are safe and sound whilst they are away. We would be delighted to look after your home in your absence, and would be sure to treat it with as much care and respect as if it were our own.

Currently Hannah is working full-time as a Primary School Teacher on the Peninsula, an area she knows well, having grown up in Mornington, and she is home most evenings and on weekends to walk and care for your pets. Ross, who grew up in Shepparton and Gippsland, is currently working in hospitality whilst he completes his university studies, meaning he is usually home during the day. Between our two schedules there is generally always somebody there to keep your pets company.

Our lifestyle is a balance between work and study, exercising at the gym and swimming in the pool, playing music (Hannah is learning guitar and Ross is a musician!) and exploring the local waterways in our new kayaks. We also enjoy spending time with family and friends whenever we get the chance.

We are always available should you need to contact us while you are away, and are happy to keep you updated and informed as often as you need to feel assured. We are able to provide references from previous hosts on request, and are happy to talk over the phone or to meet for a chat to discuss your house-minding requirements.

Please consider us to be your happy house-sitters, and we promise to do our utmost to ensure your house and pets are as beautiful as the day you trusted them to us.

Hannah and Ross.

  • ACT, NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, South Eastern, Central, Bundaberg & Wide Bay, Mackay & Whitsundays, Northern QLD, Western QLD, Mid North, South, Spencer Gulf, West Coast, TAS, VIC

Hello. I am a retired, mature (sadly!), married woman looking to do some house sitting. I live with my husband in our own home on the Gold Coast and we currently have a dog and a cat. I am an experienced "pet" person, having had all manor of animals in my home, from mice, birds, fish to cats and dogs. Our own dog (a kelpie) is currently 7 years old and a very crazy young thing, needing lots and lots of exercise. He was supposed to be an outside dog, but somehow that rule hasn't been fully applied! Our cat is almost 4 and is very much busy with chasing the dog around. I am able to garden, clean the pool, look after the house and pets. I am a non smoker. Though I plan to "house sit" usually by myself, there would be times when my husband would join me for a short break. We are both thoroughly house trained! We are planning to formally retire in a few years and I feel that house sitting in different places would help me to get a feel for various districts by living like a local, rather than as a tourist. I am most happy to look after pets and would look after your home well. I have now done many house sits (and many return sits) and can forward names and contact details for these house owners as references. I have a written personal character reference that I can send on to you as well. Hopefully all will tell you how wonderful I am. Oh, and also that I am honest, reliable and trustworthy. You can email me on eevahelena@yahoo.com.au anytime. My preference is for short breaks, up to three weeks or so, and around the ACT or anywhere in NSW. Thanks. Eeva

  • Bris. Northern suburbs, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Perth, S. West

It is great to be back in Sydney and I am happy to house and pet sit. I am a mature, happy lady who has experience house sitting for employers and friends. Now I would like to do it more often in different areas, my niece wanted me to move to Perth to be close to her. I was over there for 15mths house and pet sitting, meeting lovely people and animals. I am clean, tidy, non smoking, love animals and looking after a garden. I have references, a police check and working with children check. I have never had experience on a farm so that type of house sitting is not for me. I am looking forward to minding your home, garden and pets.

Sally


  • Melbourne

Hi,

My name is Sally, a 26 year old Business Owner and Marketing Consultant.

I have lived on my own for the last 2 years after living in a sharehouse - but this year have taken up housesitting so I can freelance with my work and spend time with pets! I love brunch, listening to music and running.
I've housesat for my friends and their pets often - and for 2 different couples I was referred to by friends - and looked after their cats and dogs. I'm a super tidy, clean person and will always leave your place immaculate.
I have flexible hours and so will be home to make sure your pets are looked after, and have my own car. I work for myself and am very focused so don't go out a lot / drink / party. I'm from Tasmania originally, where we had several pets (including chickens!) and have lived in Melbourne now for 7 years.

HENRIETTE & Katie


  • North Coast, Brisbane, South Eastern

Myself and my two adult daughters Katie and Rebekah, would love to look after your home or home and animals. We are very clean and respectful people with a love for all animals and dogs. We would love to house sit your home so we can get away for a break more often and to look after animals is a bonus too.
As I am a school bus driver we would be available to house sit your home anytime during the school holidays. My daughters Katie is studying primary school teaching and school holidays are good for her too. The other daughter Rebekah works assisting my husband (who is her father) in his landscaping, lawn-mowing business so if your home requires any garden maintenance we are well equipped to do so.
We are all non-smokers who love a clean and tidy house and would ensure your house and property is treated as our own.
I can supply references if requested.

Kind regards Henriette

Conrad & Molly


  • Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hi!

We're Conrad and Molly. A young mature minded couple from Melbourne. We have been together for 7 years and married for 2. We enjoy eating out, travelling and going to the football. We are non drinkers and non smokers who enjoy keeping a very clean and tidy home.

Recently we came across the idea of house sitting and thought it would be a great opportunity for us to combine our love of animals and travelling.
Conrad grew up in Melbourne and was raised to have a strong respect and love for pets. We are regular donators to the Animal Protection Society Op Shops as well as our family cat Hugo the Russian Blue/Korat coming from the shelter in Keysborough as a kitten. Molly is originally from Saigon and grew up with pet dogs and cats since childhood.

House-sitting is the perfect opportunity for us to combine love of animals and travel as well as saving for our first car and home!

We have grown up around animals whether visits to the Keysborough shelter, Our first 2 cats Chloe and Polly, one of which lived to 19 years old. Our current family cat which lives at my Mum's house Hugo whom is a spoilt 10yo Russian Blue Australia Day Baby.

Experience History:
> July 2017: To mixed breed dogs
> June 2017: Short Hair Mia (in Photo)
> I have house sitted in my teens for 3 weeks at a freinds home taking care of 2 Russian Blue Cats Phin and Casper.
> I have walked 2 neighbors Labradors Homer and Humphrey while growing up as well.
> I have fed and given company to a freinds bunny while away.
> Fed and kept company of neighbours of long hair cat Roxy while on holidays.
> Experienced with special needs animals as Hugo himself has an incurable hiatal hernia :( since he was 2 and cannot eat solid foods and all food needs to be blitz. : (

While your away we are happy for mow your lawns, vaccum your house, clean the bathroom, clean the pool whatever is needed will be our pleasure.

Stephanie & Dan


  • VIC

Hi Everyone!
We are a kind, friendly and quiet couple who are looking to house sit to save for a campervan to travel around Australia.
We run a Freelance Photography business that allows us to create our own schedule and work mostly from home. We are very clean and tidy, we are animal lovers and enjoy gardening - we would love to take care of your home, pets and garden to help ease the stress of your trip away.

While we are only just starting our journey on happyhousesitters we have had previous house sitting experiences (including taking care of pets and garden) and can provide some wonderful references on request. We are non-smokers and have police checks available.

Kara


  • Sydney

I am looking to housesit the second half of 2017 as I am a mature age medical student who has just spent the year living in the rural town of Mudgee. I am coming to Sydney to complete my final placements before I graduate from medicine at the end of the year. With rental prices being so steep, and being a student, house sitting makes perfect sense! I am a keen animal lover, having grown up with both cats and dogs. I am a very tidy person and would treat your residence with the utmost respect. I am a non-smoker, and consider myself a fit and active person. I will be spending a lot of time studying during this period. I am also happy to provide a reference from my current landlord. Please consider me in sitting your house and taking care of your lovely pets!

Edwina


  • Melbourne, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

Hello my name is Edwina, 34. I am a Naturopath currently living in Thornbury. I am looking to do some housesitting as our lease is up soon and I am figuring out where I would like to be based. I am reliable and trustworthy and pride myself on my ability to make my home and others a lovely, clean, beautiful place to live. I am always respectful of other peoples homes and always leave a place the way I found it in the first place. I love animals and wish that I could have a dog of my own however it's difficult when renting so if I can look after someone else's lovely pet it would be a treat. I have had experience with animals from a young age. I love to go out walking in nature, and camping when I have some free time.

As well as working I am currently studying a Diploma in Ayurvedic Medicine Part Time which keeps me busy.

I am more than happy to provide references upon request.

Slav


  • Melbourne

Hi,

I'm 56, currently single, non-smoking, quiet professional living in Kensington and working in South Melbourne. I just rented out my home and I'm looking to house sit for a short period, as this would allow me more time to find a new place without being rushed. My preference is to house sit in a low maintenance home in the inner suburbs of Melbourne and would love to care for a pet / pets. I'm very experienced with caring for high maintenance cats, as I owned a (Persian) cat Hugo, who sadly passed away 2 years ago at the age of 15. I'm less experienced with dogs, as I've never owned one and only ever looked after a house once before which was home to a small Jack Russell. I've lived in my own home for more than more than 30 years, but have had house sitters look after my house and Hugo on quite a few occasions, so I know what's required. I am a responsible, reliable and considerate person, and would take excellent care of your property and pets. At this stage, I am available from 21st May 2017 to 15th July.

Slav.

Wendy


  • Melbourne

I'm a single non-smoker with over 10 years experience caring for the homes and pets across Melbourne.

A cuddler of pups and cats alike - I'm the favourite 'Auntie' & beloved friend of many four legged fur babies across Melbourne. I would be honoured to take care of your house and pets like they are my own. While I don't find fish or Chooks quite as huggable as their furry counterparts - my pet sitting experience has extended on occasion to the feathered & finned variety.

I am quiet, clean and respectful of your home and privacy. I love gardening and would be happy to putter about in your garden or keep the house plants watered while you're away. I am a responsible, practical sort and will do my very best to ensure your home is cared for and that your instructions are followed. I am, however, resourceful enough to handle common household issues - should something unexpected arise.

I am hoping to housesit within the inner/ northern Melbourne areas. Prefer within a 45-1hr travel time to CBD by Transit but can travel further in the new year.

Here are some exerpts from some of my references & reviews:

"Wendy was an absolute dreams a house sitter!...She was so attentive to our loved dog" Tania, Footscray

"The best part of having Wendy come and stay is her connection with our English Staffy and Aussie bulldog, they LOVE her. " Ben, Brunswick

"....it was quite clear [our Dog] Jack had formed a bond with Wendy. She had taken him on several long walks and patiently supervised while he played with other dogs...." Heather, Carlton

I can provide references & police check and always happy to have a chat and answer any questions you might have.

Barry & Kevin


  • Sydney, South Coast, Murray & Riverina, Snowy MTS, Southern Tablelands, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are two retired guys who are purchasing a house on the Gold Coast and will rent it out for a year or so to drive around Australia.
We would love to house and/or pet sit for other people on the way while they enjoy their time away.
We have rented houses around NSW and Qld and have always treated them as if they were our own as is testament by the excellent references we have been given by the Property managers, and this is the way we would look after any properties that we are lucky enough to sit.
We have had extensive experience with both domestic animals...cats, dogs, birds etc. after having owned all of these at some stage...one of which is shown in the pic I have uploaded...as well as farm animals whilst owning acreage in NSW and Qld.
We are both extremely clean & tidy people, non smokers and like to ride push bikes, play tennis and go to sporting events like AFL, Rugby League, tennis etc.

Judith & Tony


  • Hobart, Melb. Inner suburbs

We are a retired, non-smoking, very active couple who returned (March 2012) from living in Northern Ireland for over 12 months. We fully intended to stay in the UK for at least another 2 to 3 years but due to a family tragedy (we lost our 9 week old grandson), we returned much earlier than we had originally planned.
We own a large home in Bexley (a suburb of Sydney, just near the airport) but currently have tenants, who are on a lease until the end of 2014. We absolutely adore animals of any kind and own 2 cats, both of whom are being looked after by our tenants (we make a monthly payment to them to do so). We really do miss them! We are a very quiet and responsible couple who spend our time reading, walking and just generally enjoying life. Since returning to Australia, we have completed 2 (private) house-sittings (one of them 3 times over 4 months) and 9 house-sits (ongoing) through two other websites, and so we will be able to provide suitable references from these home owners. We are extremely tidy people and will look after your home as if it was our own!
We now have another beautiful and healthy grandson who lives in Hampton, Victoria and so we would like to continue doing house-sits in the Bayside area of Melbourne.
Please do not hesitate to contact us so that we might meet (personally or electronically) to discuss your house sitting needs.
14th January: We have just returned to Sydney (briefly) having just completed a wonderful house-sit in Brighton, Victoria looking after a gorgeous Schnauzer for over 3 weeks across Christmas!
Preferred Locations: Bayside (or close-by) suburbs of Melbourne.

  • VIC

Hi, I am a 55-year-old professional looking for house sitting opportunities in Melbourne and nearby rural areas. I have extensive experience house-sitting and can provide references from many house-sits (25 sits to-date) as well as a national police check.

I own a family home in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and have owned a number of homes over the past 20 years. My family has always had pets - dogs, cats, rabbits, fish - and caring for yours and showing them the appropriate amount of care and affection would be a pleasure.

My profession is writing and I have a flexible work schedule that allows me to spend my days either working from home or from a city-based office depending on requirements and my preference. That means I can often be around the house during the day to keep pets company and ensure your home is occupied from a security perspective. I have worked for the one company for 20 years - which I guess demonstrates a stable (not boring!) professional life.

I am a non-smoker, light drinker, clean living guy who likes a quiet lifestyle. I'm also a bit of a fitness fanatic, which means walking energetic dogs is a joy. I'm very security conscious and like to keep things clean and tidy.

I'm quite comfortable with pets that need lots of attention having looked after a Jack Russell in his senior years with daily medication, a strict food regime and plenty of pampering. Our family cat also likes plenty of attention - but only when it suits her!

You will find me to be a reliable house-sitter who is very respectful of your property and committed to exceeding your expectations.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Philip

Merryll-Anne & Matthew


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

In a nutshell: We are a professional couple looking to house sit in Sydney within a 1 hour public transport commute to the CBD. We love animals.

Experience: House sitting for dogs and cats young and old, including training, administering medication, and behavioural issues. We have also sat dangerous dogs and rescues so are confident carers.

We are non-smoking, clean, and love a good meal at home. Matt is a solicitor working in the city I am a behaviour analyst working with special needs children. I work mainly in schools, I do a lot of work from home (especially in school holidays) so I am ideal for pets that need a bit of extra attention.

A little bit more info...

Who we are:
We are a down to earth, quiet, newly married, professional couple in our late 20's who love to spend a cozy night at home together (furry cuddles are always a huge bonus). We LOVE animals and like to borrow Matts parents dog (Shelby, a 4yo black lab) so that we can go to dog friendly beaches (our favourite is Sirius Cove) for a play and a swim. We love music, Matt is a member of a local Sydney choir and we are both members of a North Shore operetta company. We did our undergraduate and post graduate studies here, and we have lived and worked here for 8 years. We are Sydney locals who are invested in the community.

Why we house sit:
Matt and I are a young married couple. We have big dreams before we settle and have children and house sitting is helping us save for the future we see for ourselves. We love animals so house and pet sitting made a lot of sense to us. House sitting is our lifestyle now. We enjoy it and we will probably continue to house sit until children are on the table for us.

Our day jobs:
Matthew is a solicitor full-time and I am a therapist for kids with special needs, my education and training also applies to animal behaviour, so I love doing training.

I am usually back at home periodically throughout the day on those days I am out, and I do a lot of office work from home, so I'm an ideal fit for any pet who needs extra attention during the day. I do a lot of work in schools so work almost full time from home during school holidays.

Sitting Experience and other relevant skills:
We started sitting full time in April 2016. In that time we have sat rescue dogs, a dangerous dog, and dogs with less interesting histories. We have also sat grumpy cats and cats who love to cuddle. We have experience administering medication to both for heart and thyroid conditions. References available on request.

We have also done a big sit of 3 dogs and two cats, so are not afraid of sits that require a bit of extra work.

Don't hesitate to send me a message, we are open to all animals and would love to hear from anyone looking for a sitter.

Then on a house sit in Agnes Water on a lovely 5 acre country beach house, where ride on mowing, gardening, pool maintenance and caring for the Rooster and hens was required. 
As we have owned 10 houses between us, before selling our last one to invest in our business, we have extensive experience with pools and spas, having 6 Pools among our Homes, including two Pools built to our own design and specifications.

Kaitlyn


  • Sydney

Hi my name is Kaitlyn, I am 29yrs old and have been full time house sitting for the past 2 months and intend to continue for the next year or more.

I find housesitting is the perfect solution for a single, mature person like me who likes her own space and hanging out at home as I like to live a quiet life. I take pride in any property I look after as I value and appreciate the opportunity of somewhere to stay and show my gratitude.

I am currently working full time for Sydney Cardiology as the practice manager / senior medic al administrator. My shifts are usually 8am - 4pm Monday through Friday; therefore I am at the property for part of the morning and majority of the evening to ensure the security of your home and pets. This also allows me to spend quality time with your fur babies, taking them for walks before and after work, and just having fun and enjoying their company.

I grew up with many family pets, so there are not many domestic animals I have not cared for. I feel I have a special affinity with animals and that they feel at home with me virtually straight away. I like to ensure that any pets I look after continue to live a stress free life whilst there owners are away.

Every owner I have assisted has been extremely happy with the standard of their properties on their return, so all you have to do is just un-pack and relax.

I have provided several written client references from owners I have recently house sat for and they are happy to be contacted to provide further verbal reference.

(Service I provide:
- Live-in house sitting by mature, trustworthy, non-smoking, professional female.
- Avoid kennel costs! Pet minding, including walking cleaning, giving medicines, and generally giving them good company and a fun experience.
- Garden maintenance & continuance of any other maintenance services.
- Collection of post.
- Keep in touch if reassurance is required, we can even Skype.
- I would also update you with photos via email so you can see first hand that your loved ones are being cared for, which will also put you at ease.
- Confidence that your home and possessions will be looked after with attention and respect.)

I look forward to hearing from you to see if I can assist you with your needs and requirements

We have been renting for the last ten years and have an unblemished record which the real estate agent can testify. I work in the health care industry at a hospital and my husband works at Channel 9 and on the Spirit of Tasmania. Can supply references on request.

Hi, I'm Dan. I'm a 34 year old honest, reliable, homebody who loves dogs.

I began house sitting and dog minding three years ago, when I looked after a beautiful labrador for two months while her owners were overseas. After a few years of house sitting occasionally, I'm now full time and loving being able to spend time with some fun dogs and having the freedom to live a more relaxed, healthy lifestyle.

I'm experienced with a range of small to large breeds, from Toy Poodles to Rhodesian Ridgebacks. I will happily give your dog plenty of love and attention - I love going for long walks, playing games like tug-of-war, giving lots of pats, snuggling on the couch and I don't mind having dogs sleep on my bed if that's what they're used to.

I'm mature, clean and tidy, and am a non-smoker. I'm not much of a party animal, and prefer quiet nights at home catching up on my favourite TV shows or working on my laptop.

I'm able to provide a police check and references from previous house sits. Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions, I'm happy to answer them!

Kalar and Brett


We are booked til Nov 25, and available after that and can consider places around Australia for Christmas. In the new school year, we are open to places in the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Northern NSW. Brett teaches music 3 days a week at private college on the Gold Coast. I am at home most times. We are a great team. I love to cuddle, snuggle, massage, coo over all the animals, make sure they are fed and clean and related. Brett loves to play with all the animals. All their needs, and more, are met by us. We have current police reports, and excellent references.
We are well travelled American/Australian and Australian/NewZealander and have housesat and animal cared many times over 10 years, and also had others housesit our homes we have owned in Maleny Australia and Nelson NZ. We follow the golden rule, and love the concept of sharing home spaces, caring for a home, not a housesitter. We love animals, and know that they are members of your family, and we will treat them like members of ours. We are spiritually conscious, and always aim to bring quality life and good energy wherever we are with the goal of helping co-create a better life for all. We have housesat in Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, and America, and we bring good positive energy to keep your home and animals nourished. I love nature and caring for a garden, vegetable, or floral. We are clean and conscious, non-partiers, peaceful and cooperative.
As well established travelers who have often used housesitters, we know the gift it is to have someone on whom you can lean. We like to provide that service for others, and believe what goes around comes around.

We have had our own gardens and properties and honor the relationship we have with you, your animals, and your property. We are honest, clear, trustworthy, caring.

I have been house-sitting for more than 2 years and have had the pleasure of looking after nearly 100 animals in that time; including dogs, cats, chickens, horses, goats, ducks, fish and even emus!

Frequent updates (including photos) are sent to home owners, allowing you to relax and enjoy your holiday, knowing that all is well with your pets and your home. I also provide all of my own consumables, bedding, towels, cookware etc, basically everything except for the kitchen sink. Upon your return, you will find your home just as clean as when you left.

I am a non-smoker, I work full time and I am more than happy to provide police clearance and house-sitting references.

Janet & Brendan


My partner Brendan and I live out in the country at Healesville, a beautiful place to live! We have done a bit of house sitting at his sisters place in Richmond (I'm sure she would be only to happy to supply a reference if needed) and thoroughly loved the inner city living experience. We are both non smokers, animal lovers and I am into a bit of fitness including lots of walking, cycling, basketball and I also enjoy aerobic classes. I am an ENJO consultant which is a non chemical based cleaning system and can work from wherever I am. Being a professional cleaner, so to speak, I always leave the place cleaner than what I found it. We own our own home in Healesville and are fortunate enough to also own a houseboat at lake Eildon where we spend our weekends over the summer months. The reason we do house sitting is because Brendan works in the city at No.1 Spring St and has spent the last 7 years commuting 5 days a week which takes an extra 3 hours out of his day on top of the 8-10 hours he works and he is a bit over all the travelling, so to be able to stay in the city is beneficial to both of us, but we are just not quite ready to give up our lovely country home yet so this is a great way to enjoy the best of both worlds!
