  • Syd. Upper N Shore, Sunshine Coast

Hi
I am a maths tutor, with a 20 yr old daughter at Sydney Uni. Alicia is studying immunology and hoping to work with endangered Tassy Devils after graduating. We have a beautiful 12 yr old cat, Binky, who will be living with Alicia.

In our neighbourhood , between us, we have cared for chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, lizards, fish, cats and dogs and can provide referees from friends and neighbours upon request.

I have a current police check and a working with children check .

I have uploaded 3 Aussiehousesitter.com.au references from sits I did last summer on that site for you to read, caring for dogs, chickens and and 2 huge Norwegian cats.

We have one reference this site, caring for a 16 yr old dog in Coogie.

Regards, Carolyn

Why choose us: Peace of mind for you, your pets and your home is what we provide.
We are an uncomplicated, non-smoker couple who once our (flexible time) day jobs are done we look forward to enjoying your pets and your home. Our days of partying are well behind us so many hours to be spent with your precious pets, including their daily walks. We are fit and reliable and take pride in all that we do.
We take the time to understand you and your pets requirements so that once we commit to your house sit, you will feel confident your pets, home and garden are in safe hands.
Through past sittings and as a home owner (with tenants occupying our home back in Europe), there were times when we had our own sitter, so we recognise the value of having a trustworthy, reliable sitter. We live simply and cleanly and will be very respectful of your home, belongings and privacy.
We come highly recommended because what we provide gives you total peace of mind during your time away from home.
And for us, the enjoyment of spending time with your pets while we don’t have our own is something we value and appreciate.
We have been pet-sitting since 2011. Our very first pet&house sit was in the UK for a lovely family with three cats. We were looking after them while the family was on a cruise. When they returned home the lady said her house had never looked so good, and the kitty-cats so content. We have been in touch with them ever since.
We pet-sit because we genuinely love animals, so we can promise you warmth, openness and loving care of your pet and home. Our aim is to give you absolute peace of mind while you are away on a well deserved holiday. We are responsible, clean and have a knowledge of basic repair, and also have gardening experience. Rest assured that we will keep excellent care of your pets, home and garden.

We thank in advance for considering us. Police clearance available.
Please note we only take sits close to work (CBD Perth +/- 20 km radius) to be able to spend as much quality time as we can with your pets.

I have been housesitting for many years all over Australia, caring for family pets, farm animals, birds, fish, rats and reptiles.

I enjoy my experiences very much and can provide references if needed.

My interests are reading, walking and discovering new places.

Please take a look at my webpage at www.parrhouse.weebly.com which gives a few pictures which I hope you enjoy.

  • Sydney, North Coast, Rural/Regional NSW, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast, Hobart, Rural/Regional Tas, Geelong, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd, Perth

Hello! I'm a single, non-smoking veterinary nurse and I adore meeting new human and animal friends. I accidentally fell into housesitting two years ago and have had non-stop positions ever since - mainly through word of mouth.

I've just sold a heritage-listed home on the far north coast of NSW as I continue my search for a rural property I can transform into a sanctuary for wildlife and rescued farmed animals. For the past few years I've worked as a writing coach and book editor, so as long as I have my laptop, internet access and solitude, I can base myself anywhere. Because I'm a qualified veterinary nurse, you can rest assured that any animals in my care will be expertly handled and observed ... while of course being diligently spoilt!

Having been a long-term home owner, I'm conscious of the attention to detail and practical care that go into maintaining a beautiful property. My tasks during housesits have included maintaining in-ground pools and organic veggie gardens while caring for a range of animals - from the most petulant pig to the snuggliest spoodle. I've single-handedly helped a cow to deliver her calf (hello, little Astro!), and I've made several return visits to a beautiful home in Byron Bay where I care for a deaf and delightful twenty-year-old cat (howdy, Max!).

All my housesitting clients have asked me to return (see written references below), and please don't hesitate to let me know if you'd like me to put you in touch with previous and current clients so you can chat with them over the phone.

In the meantime, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to hearing from you.

Mary & Wayne


  • QLD, Melbourne, Bendigo, North Eastern, North Western, SE Vic, Geelong, Grampians, Otway Ranges/ Great Ocean Rd

We arrived from the States in the 70’s, recruited to teach, and loved it so much we stayed! We are responsible, reliable, non-smokers and will look after your home in the same manner that we have looked after ours.
We have sold our large house (downsizing from 2 hectares to two bedrooms) and are now retired. We are great walkers and love all animals, having had many over the years.
We have house sat in the past (in Ashgrove, Qld. looking after the lovely Lola, two year-old poodle as well as Lucy in Mitchelton and two schnauzers in Fitzgibbon in 2016, 2017 three lovely little dogs in Forest Lake, Gizmo the cat in Carindale and the schnauzers again in Fitzgibbon, all references below).
This year we are staying closeby our home in Gisborne. We are happy to be flexible with your dates. We have used house sitters when we have travelled. We understand how invaluable a good house sitter can be. We'd love to look after your precious cat and fishs snails (??) and would treat your house with the respect that we would hope a housesitter would treat ours. Available for Facetime interview if requested. We hope to hear from you at your convenience. Thanks for the opportunity. Mary and Wayne
Police checks, references are available.

  • Melbourne

I’ve recently been travelling/volunteering through India and Nepal. The recent volunteer project in Nepal was rebuilding schools after the earthquake and It was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done!

I’ve now arrived in Melbourne and in the process of getting myself set up here to stay for a while.

I’m really keen to get involved in house sitters as I love animals, particularly cats!!

I grew up having a Ginger cat and I absolutely adored him! He was the families cat but I was definitely his favourite!!

I haven’t been able to have any pets since I left home due to all my different adventures and when I was renting in London my landlords never allowed pets in the house. So having the option to house sit your pets is the next best thing for me right now.

This is my first time on house sitters, but back home in London I have previously house sit my friends cats for a number of weeks and also looked after my friends Guinea pigs.

I would be very affectionate and loving towards your pets, I would certainly treat them as if they were my own!

I’m really clean, tidy and would be happy to do other chores around the house such as gardening, watering plants and general house up keep. I would always treat your home as if it was mine.

I’m a really active person! I normally play football and netball but I haven’t found a team yet in Melbourne to join. I also enjoy reading and am currently reading the book Shantaram.

I would be happy to come visit the house and your pets before the house sitting starts.

I can arrange for professional references and/or personal references to be sent as well.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

I look forward to meeting many of your beautiful pets!

Cheers,

Louise

Hi house owner,

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 also meticulous in the attention we give to each property, whether it be an apartment, a suburban block or a rural spread. Recent experiences have included a 10 month stint on a Daintree acreage, return visits to a horse property and 3 months caring for two houses in the south of France. As Tony is something of a dab hand at housework and property maintenance and Helen is an expert at quality control, 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.

Kathryn & Peter


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. SW suburbs, Northern Rivers, Rural/Regional NSW

Kathryn is a well known long term resident of the Byron Shire with a house of her own in Suffolk Park. At the moment she is away from home enjoying staying in different housesits in the Shire. For the past year she has housesat various properties in Mullumbimby, Ocean Shores, and Cooper's Shoot. Excellent references can be given upon request.

Peter is from New Zealand, with family in Suffolk Park. He enjoys gardening, has a vegetable garden at his home in NZ, and would be keen to maintain a housesit garden if required.

Both Peter and Kathryn are writers, and enjoy a particularly quiet lifestyle, especially in the countryside. They are both experienced cat and dog owners, as well as experienced carers of other people's animals, including on farms with cows, horses, etc.

They are both clean, tidy, organised, and are non-drinkers, non-smokers and drug free.

David & Angela


  • Central Coast

We are a young couple looking to treat Holidayer's homes and pets as our own, around the Central Coast region!
Newly married in September, we will be seeking some independence from our in-laws as we await the completion of our first home (due to be finished in April 2018).
Preferably we would like to take on longer term sits, but will consider any homes/pets requiring minding.
We are both clean, non-smokers, who work full time on the Central Coast.
We are fit and active and more than happy to walk pets who require exercise daily!
Rest assured, both your home and fur babies will be well looked after in our hands.
If references are required: We have previously minded a home for a friend who required 2x daily feeds for 3x cats, 1x dog and 2x birds. She would be more than happy to recommend our services to you, to ensure you have peace of mind while holidaying away.
Please contact directly for further information

David and Angela.

Ed and Birgitta


  • Melb. NE suburbs, Melb. NW suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs, Northern Vic, SE Vic, SW Vic

Welcome to our profile!
We’re Ed and Birgitta - a retired energetic pet loving couple.

Do you want genuine animal lovers to care for your pets while you're away?
Are you anxious to ensure your house and garden is well cared for?
Would you like the peace of mind that comes with mature, responsible house sitters?
Do you want regular updates and pictures of your pets?
Would you like house sitters who are committed to following your instructions?

If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, you’ve found the right house sitters. It’s what we look for when we have folks house-sitting for us.
We are a clean, friendly, non-smoking, retired but energetic professionals and down-to-earth couple. We love all kinds of animals and consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets and garden as we would our own. As owners of 3 properties, we understand what’s required.

We come from the UK but frequently spend long periods in Australia since retirement as our only daughter lives in Melbourne. Having owned dogs, cats and hamsters we miss having pets of our own and really enjoy looking after them. However we decided it would be unfair to have more when we started travelling so much after we retired.

What does that mean for you? You get sitters with the time, experience and flexibility to cuddle, feed and walk your pets during the day, keeping your home secure and occupied and giving you the peace of mind you need to enjoy your holiday.

We’re happy to care for your pot plants, gardens, lawns, pool and garaged vehicles according to your instructions. Ed loves DIY and is familiar with ride-on mowers, whipper snippers, brush cutters, wood chopping and pool maintenance (pool pumps and filters). Birgitta loves keeping the house tidy and clean and we enjoy gardening together.

So whether it's your pets that need caring for, your lawns need mowing, your pool needs maintaining or your garden needs watering, we'd love to help out! Message us for our phone number - you can also initially meet us on Skype or FaceTime and in person if we look like your kind of house sitters.

Traveling is my favourite thing in the world, though other interests include all things outdoors, reading and photography.

I have a great respect for others' property and rules, and have available (on request) the link to my airbnb profile to showcase my many references.

Andrew & Andrea


  • Perth

Hi home owners,

We are Andy, Andrea and Alexa, a family of three who loves to spend time together and outdoors. Andy works full time as a driller and I am home most days with Alexa. Our days are filled with daily walks, meeting with friends in the park and looking after the home and pets.

Currently we are going through the process of building our dream home while renting out our first property. While living with family is great, we all like our space from time to time and so we have taken on some house sitting while we are waiting for our home to be completed. We enjoy looking after homes with friendly and happy animals who we can include in our daily lifestyle and going out for walks to the park while also being happy to be casual at home as Alexa and I spend some time at home every day.

Looking after your pets will be our delight as we are previous pet owners of both cats and dogs and look forward to owning pets again in our new home. Andy is also an experienced landscaper and very confident with looking after and maintain gardens from small to large acreage.

We have 3 recent house sitting assignments under our belts, one of which was for several weeks (please see reference) Other references are also available upon request for personal phone numbers to be contacted on.

We look forward to having a chat with you to see if we can offer what you need while you are away so that you can be confident that you will return to a happy home, loving pets and a live garden :)

Cheers, Andy Andrea and Alexa

Edward & Hannah


  • Melbourne

Hi,

We are looking for house sits within 20kms of the Melbourne CBD. We love all animals however most of our experience is looking after dogs and cats. We love looking after pets and get enjoyment out of their happiness.

A little about Hannah and Ed:

We are very caring, responsible, tidy, clean, considerate, non-party, professionals in our mid-thirties. We work slightly different hours to one another which works out well as we are able to give pets a lot of attention and walks.

We have a 5 year old King Charles Cavalier (Alfie) who is the most chilled out dog in the world and our most precious possession. So we are also looking for house sits that have pets that Alfie is compatible with. Alfie is patient and is never agitated and would be no threat to your property in the slightest. Alfie is very low maintenance and would be happy living in a one bedroom apartment or a large house. Alfie is house trained and sleeps all day until we come home when he just wants to chill out and sit on one of our laps until we give him his regular daily walk. We regularly wash and comb Alfie who is also a regular visitor at the dog groomer.

Ed is a keen gardener so if you have outside areas that require maintenance that is not a problem.

We would love the opportunity to meet you and your pet/s and introduce you to Alfie.

Please contact us anytime if you have any questions or wish to discuss further. We are happy to provide references on request.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Cimone & Merv


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore, Syd. Upper N Shore, North Coast, Sunshine Coast, Mackay & Whitsundays, Cairns, FNQ, Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. NE suburbs

** We are now available from Jan 22-Feb 24 in Melb CBD or Syd. Ideally, love to look after a Poodle, Pug or Schnauzer to love up, take on car rides, coffee shops and daily walks. Thank you warmly!

We are a kind, respectful, non-smoking happy couple of 45 and 52 years that have been together for over 12 years. It is a very strong partnership, able to share the pet-sitting routine with ease. As there are two of us, we may sometimes be able to accept bookings that overlap by a few days to create a win/win for everyone.

Merv and I have put everything into a storage unit so our home is everywhere. We have spent less than 20 days in an Airbnb in 2017 as we are always back to back with new bookings and repeat bookings which we are very grateful for. The hosts from Airbnb have also given us a 5 star rating for our easy-going nature and leaving their place spotless.

We have had over 18 pet-sitting bookings on another website with 70-90 applicants applying for that same spot. Our full brochure, video, Pet Questionnaire and countless testimonials have always stood out to be professional and has sincerely translated to why we do what we do.

We have been Professional House-Sitters for many years and do this full-time, with glowing contactable references, current Police Clearances and a PIAA Pet First Aid course.

As we have been a home and pet owner before, we understand what it’s like entrusting your home to someone, so rest assured we will look after it as if it were our own.

Your precious pets will receive our loving care and any routine you have in place will be followed. We know they are family and are very important to you, so we become their proxy pet parents, bringing them companionship and lots of happy times. They will also be well-exercised and have plenty of play-time. Coffee shop outings and car-rides to the doggy beach. They will always be part of our routine and come with us when they can.

Being self-employed, we are both blessed to work from our laptops, meaning added security for your house and lots of human contact for your furkids so they can stay relaxed in their own home environment and keep to their daily routines. We also have our own transport.

Background of Cimone-Louise -
* Mentor and Trusted Advisor to Entrepreneurs
* Social Trainer - worked with children and adults with disabilities
* Lifeguard and Swimming Coach

Background of Merv -
* Event Coordinator with over 20 years experience
* Treasurer of the NSW FAA
* His mother Sharon used to breed various dogs and cats (e.g. Poodles and Saint Bernards)

We welcome you to contact us with any specific questions or requests. We will do our best to get back to you in a couple of hours. The easiest way is if you could please leave your mobile number in our inbox when you message, thank you warmly.

With Respect and Gratitude,
Cimone-Louise and Merv..

Here is a cute 2 min video we did on some of the fur and feather friends we have cared for. May it bring a smile to your faces!

  • TAS, VIC, WA

Preferred area: Melbourne and surrounds, Victoria.

Hello! I'm a responsible and house proud non-smoker with an array of house-sits under my belt - from inner city flats to a Tasmanian farmhouse. I am house sitting long term to save for my own home, and have had over three years of house sits almost back-to-back. Many house sits have come through the Happy House Sitters website.

I enjoy a bit of gardening and love the company of animals. I’ve looked after dogs, cats, birds, chickens and even sheep as part of my house-sits. You can be assured that your home will be kept clean and tidy. As a freelance writer and marketer, I often work from home and I think this adds an advantage of “lived-in security” to a property, not to mention extra time with the pets!

A police check and excellent references are available on request.

Ideally I’m after long term house-sits (1 month +) but will definitely consider shorter term options.

I am a 47 year old female, single, non-smoker, non-drinker working in Forensic Sciences at Macleod so need to be able to commute daily. I have been employed in Forensics since July 2001. I have recently sold my home in Kilsyth and am keen to just "chill out" for the next few years without a mortgage....ahhh mortgage free for a few years is a wonderful thought. I love all animals whether furry, feathered, hooved etc and currently have an old husky of my own, Dylan is 11 1/2 years old. (house trained, doesn't dig or destroy property, she sleeps most of day now :) ) I volunteer at RSPCA Burwood every second Friday for the day. Being a home owner myself (until recently) I understand the gravity of inviting a stranger into your home to care for it, I can assure you that I would respect your home as if it was my own. I love being outdoors and active. Gardening is one of my passions, so if you have a garden that you need nurtured and not just kept, I would be glad to help out. I have my own trailer so I'm quite willing and able to lay some mulch or do a tip run if the garden needs it. If you think I may fit the bill, please, get in touch with me and we can meet to discuss your needs. Long term house sitting eg 6 - 12 months would be quite suitable for me as I must move out of my house by December 21st 2015.

THEIR ENDORSEMENT OF YOU:
Gaylin house sat for us for three weeks and looked after our elderly cat and our home. Gaylin sent us messages and pictures of our cat during our holiday which we really appreciated as we were missing our boy terribly. We arrived home to a sparkly clean house and a very happy cat, he was even in her room looking for her this morning so that tells me they had a good thing going on. We also had superb yellow roses in a vase and a special one sitting in our daughters room, which she loved. Thanks so much Gaylin we really appreciate the time you spent here and the lovely clean house on our return.

Hi - we are a semi retired couple living on the Sunshine Coast in Qld. Below are the points we consider to be the most important reasons for why we have chosen to become regular house/pet sitters:-

We have completed a number of pet/house sits and have found the experience to be really enjoyable and a great way for us to travel to different areas in Australia. We have had some wonderful pet experiences, met some great people and so we can only say really good things about our completed pet sits.
We are, of course, particularly conscious of the fact that we are in someone else's home and we take that responsibility very seriously.

Most importantly, we are animal lovers, have had many dogs and cats and know the one thing a pet owner wants, is to know their animal is happy and well cared for - we have been there ourselves. We always keep in touch via email with updates on how your pet is going.

So look forward to hearing from anyone who may be interested in our minding their home and or pet while they are away.

Have assisted with cherry orchard. . picking, packing, sales etc. Gardening. pruning, general maintenance, lawn mowing.

Our family live on South Coast NSW and Bairnsdale Vic and our plan is to eventually settle in the Bairnsdale area so would be very interested in finding house sits there. We are both non smokers, hubby enjoys the occasional beer, plays social bowls, loves yarn especially with retired truck drivers.. working with machinery. We both love animals and enjoy caring for them, we have had our own fur pets, but when our little dog had to be put to sleep we decided .. no more until we settled down.. I enjoy gardening, movies, reading and have done volunteer work ( not so much, since we been travelling) scrapbooking, card making. walking. We are both very tidy and particular how we care for our own and other peoples possessions. We are happy to try most chores on farm and Ron usually is the worker, I do what I can to support him. He also likes fishing and we enjoy visiting new places, meeting the locals and the occasional visit to local club. Have written references.

Hi,

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.

Cheers,
Andrew and Fern

Hello,

Thank you for stopping by on our profile!

We are a friendly, quiet, reliable, organised and non-smoking couple in our mid 40's with no children working as researchers in Melbourne who started house sitting to experience living in and around Melbourne after moving to Melbourne in 2015.

Through house minding, we have had the opportunity to mind and enjoy many loved pets and befriend their wonderful owners. Our experience includes small and big dogs, cats, chooks, and fish. We have taken care of properties of various sizes. While you are away, we will ensure that your house and garden stay in good condition and most importantly that your pet(s) will be lovingly cared for with regular updates.

Our preference goes out to arrangements of longer duration (ranging from between 6 weeks to several months) but are also open to house sits of somewhat shorter duration.

We are more than happy to meet you and your pet(s) in person and chat about how we can help you. Also, in case you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. References and endorsements from completed house sits, police checks, and character references are available.

We look forward to meeting you and exploring if we are a match for you and your pet(s)!

Best regards,
Rene and Sabine

We are a married couple just retiring and looking forward to doing some travelling to see this great country of ours, especially to travel to see family from early April next year, from Adelaide to Queensland. We love the country, and are happy to mind animals. We are non-smokers, and live clean & quiet lives and would leave your house clean and tidy when we left it. We have police clearances as we have been doing voluntary work in aged care & also with children.

Hi I am a single, mature female. This is a time of exploration for me, I work as a casual, agency, theatre nurse, a job that can take me all around Australia. My children are grown and I am free to enjoy different places and people. I have always had animals and love nothing more than the unconditional love they bring to life. I am vegetarian, I neither smoke nor drink and I have practiced and taught yoga and meditation for the past 30 years.
I look forward to the opportunity to house sit for you,

Hello!
We are a couple originally from the coastal region of Philip Island, who love to travel. 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 consider ourselves fun loving individuals who love spending time exploring. We are both vegan, so our love for animals and the planet are two things that we take a lot of pride in! We both study and work from home completing courses that are in alignment with our interests.

We would be excited to hear from any potential home and pet owners who are looking for heart centred and compassionate home and fury friend sitters!
Warm regards, Bailey and Casey.
