Sarah & Riley

  • TAS, Melb. Inner suburbs, Melb. SE suburbs

Hi! We are Riley and Sarah.

We are both live in Melbourne, Australia. We are looking for opportunities to house-sit until the end of 2017, particular in the South/ East/ South-Eastern/ Inner City suburbs.

A bit about us....

Riley (29) is an American, currently in Australia on a working holiday visa. He is from Kansas and has a teaching degree from the University of Kansas. Since arriving in Melbourne, Riley has worked as an au pair for host families and as a carer for people with disabilities. Most recently Riley has been house-sitting with Sarah in Hampton. Last year (2015-16) he did a year of service in Louisiana building wheelchair ramps for disabled homeowners; and also helped restore homes for low income and elderly people in the area. He has beginner carpentry skills and home improvement abilities. He has also worked in the past as a janitor and as a counsellor at many Summer Camps. Riley has been volunteering in a garden in Melbourne the past few months. Riley enjoys working hard and helping others in any capacity he can.

Sarah (25) is an Australian. She grew up in country Victoria riding horses, hiking, working in garden and learning to be an excellent cook with a passion for home grown produce. Sarah moved to Melbourne to study at Monash University and is currently in her final year of study. Sarah has worked previously in childcare, hospitality, consultancy and has a background in law. Sarah frequently volunteers her time at community legal centres providing free advice to those who cannot afford lawyers. Sarah has travelled widely and is always interested to be a part of a community. She really loves animals - large and small.

Together, we love the outdoors and being active. We love camping, hiking, cooking, walks on the beach and chatting over cups of tea. We are both non-smokers. We are both available to start sitting opportunities until the end of 2017. Sarah has been in Africa, studying and interning for human rights organisations from June-August 2017, and Riley was working in Perth. Our plans are to visit/return to the USA at the end of 2017 (mid-December). We are looking for any sitting opportunities in Melbourne between now and December 2017.

Previous experience:
- Au Pair / live-in help
- Child care/ nannying
- House sitting Malvern (October '16)
- House sitting Richmond (January '17) (one cat)

  • Sydney

At home in Emerald Beach I live with my mother, nephew Simon, and our domestic cat, Alice. I love cats. I often take care of my son's 2 cats when he needs me to help him. I have always had cats in our family. Our cats are always indoor cats and I would prefer to only house sit indoor cats ( for safety).

William & Margaret

  • Darwin, Northern

I have had a number of careers from Cadet Surveyor in Tasmania, a Patrol Officer (Kiap) with the Australian Government in remote outstations in Papua New Guinea, and a career in administration and sales in the Aluminium and Timber Industries in Australia.
I am a retired CPA (Degree in Commerce) and am a JP (Qual) in Queensland. I am a very practical and hands on person and able to take on many tasks.
As owner builders Margaret and I built our two story timber home at Hervey Bay where we lived for 20 years prior to basing ourselves at Agnes Water in Queensland. During our seven years in PNG I was posted to very isolated outstations where I was responsible for most government matters including police, magisterial, treasury and local government affecting the local people of a sub district.
We are quite happy to house sit in areas that are isolated.
Margaret as a retired early childhood teacher has taught in Primary schools in Tasmania, NSW, PNG, ACT and Queensland for the past 42 years. She loves gardening and outdoors.
We have owned swimming pools in Brisbane and Townville and know how to maintain them.
We have had many pets over the years. Our last two dogs were a German Shepherd and a three kg toy poodle who were great mates as we had them at the same time. We do not have pets now.
We have our own self contained off road caravan and could be independent.
We have house and pet minded at the town of Seventeen Seventy (near Agnes Water) on two occasions looking after three large dogs.
We are currently travelling our way around Australia and wish to see and experience as much as we can.
We have a son in Sydney and a daughter at Agnes Water and four grandchildren who we love dearly and visit regularly.
Above all we are friendly, have a good sense of humour, active and enjoy meeting people. You can rest assured that we would look after your property in the best way.


  • Adelaide

I am a shift worker living in West Adelaide. I like to house sit as I enjoy time on my own. I have a family with my hubby, three girls, (20, 19 and 13), Lab Max is 8 years old, Ginger male cat (rescued) and female tabby who is one year old.

I am very reliable and I will feed and love your pets as if they were my own and I will look after your house and possessions in the same way. I enjoy Netflix so access to wifi is important.

As I will be caring for your fur babies, it is important that on excessively warm or cold days, they are brought inside to avoid the extreme weather.

Thank you.

  • QLD, VIC

A responsible & trustworthy 33yr old non-smoker, I have housesat worldwide & have great references. I love having animals around me, & especially adore cats and smart dogs. I am house-proud, & really enjoy every-day tasks of caring for a home as if it were my own. A scientist, ecologist then yacht-stewardess, I am not quite sure i have finished with travelling the world, but it sure is nice to come home for a while. Housesitting gives me the chance to work out 'where' and 'what' next.

*** Although I usually sit alone, I am lucky to be accompanied in my journey now by my partner Sebastian, who will be in Australia til end of March and used to housesit during his travelling days, several years ago now. He is a German psychologist turned yoga teacher/acro yoga instructor and therapist in thai massage. He manages his own AirBnB (one of his rooms here:
With his profile at the bottom of the page and many positive references.)

*** I worked for a number of years as a medical scientist, saved and bought a townhouse in Melbourne, before deciding to see the world, pursuing my love of nature and animals by participating in various volunteer projects in Latin America for two years, then working as a yacht stewardess to supplement further travel throughout Europe. I have been lucky to housesit (and boatsit) caring for many different pets all throughout my travels, which in turn gave me with much-needed animal companionship and a place to care for as if it were my own. Now I am returning to Australia for a few months to visit my best friend and her new baby (in Warragul) and to exact some repairs upon my townhouse (Glenroy).

*** I will not be working in this short time so I will have heaps of quality time to spend with your pets and be added security presence for your home. I enjoy my own time and quiet space and am the sort of person who prefers to meditate or do yoga than go out to parties. I do not take drugs, and am a firm NON-smoker (Sebastian, likewise). We do enjoy the occasional glass of wine with dinner.

*** I am an extremely clean and tidy person, (force of habit from working in the yachting industry) so I appreciate the same in my surroundings. Any effort you make to clean and tidy your home before you go will be returned in-kind as I always leave a home better than how I found it, and with more joy in my heart for doing so when it is obvious you take pride in it too.

*** I have used Happy Housesitters in the past when I had to leave my own cat and home, so I totally understand how you feel & will keep you updated via email, facebook, whatsapp or Skype, as frequently as you wish, whilst you are away. The health and happiness of your pet, security of your home, and your peace-of-mind are my top priorities.

*** I can provide great references upon request (many of my sits have been overseas and by word-of-mouth, so references have not been sent through the happyhousesitter site, though I have plenty), and am happy to meet either in person if possible or via Skype, before you commit so you can see if I will be the perfect fit for you & your pets.

*** I have experience with cats, dogs, horses, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, fish, and birds.
I am experienced & comfortable with administration of medicines. Please contact to discuss any requirements.

*** Finally, I love all animals and seek first and foremost to keep them comfortable and happy, healthy and enjoying life. No request to this end is ever too big or too small.

Henning & Miemsie

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

We are a healthy, clean and tidy, nonsmoking, '40-ish', pet friendly couple, looking to stay in new places. We’re very comfortable with responsibility and love meeting new people and animals. We have experience as house sitters and have excellent references. We pay attention to detail, can follow instructions & take pride in providing excellent service. This involved feeding animals and walking the dogs; maintaining a suburban house and garden. We love animals.

As long-term pet, home & garden owners ourselves, we're very comfortable with looking after your precious pets, home & plants. Having had pets for many years and our last dog [Tarzan and Boerboel] died of old age. We have no pets now, a conscious decision to be able to travel. Meanwhile, we continue to get our pet 'fixes' via house sits, friends, family & neighbours who have pets.

We are both house proud and would consider it a privilege to care for your home, pets and garden. We would look after each home in the same manner that we love and respect our own.

Henning has been house sitting full time for the past 6 months, looking after cats, dogs and chickens. He has plenty of experience taking care of animals! Homeowners can expect their property to be well maintained, clean, neat and tidy. I join him for 3 months at a time or whenever I get the opportunity. Both of us have been invited a couple times to mind people’s houses and various animals prior to the 6 months.

We haven’t decide where we will be living yet and has decided that house sitting will give us the opportunity to experience different suburbs and to save up for a deposit.

We prefer to meet you prior to the stay. That way you can meet us and we’re able to hear the important info about your pet/s and their routine, walking routes, special needs etc, also other relevant info about the house and associated duties.

References available on the site. Recent WWC [working with children certificate] provided which includes police checks, Non-smoker, Experience with Domestic Animals.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

  • Launceston, Perth

We only have a few days here and there available now for 2018 although we've just had a late January cancellation so if your sit can fit in between the 26th Jan & 17th Feb we can help.

We run our IT business from home and now have over seven year's full time house and pet sitting experience. It's keeping us very busy and has become a way of life looking after all kinds of pets while their families travel. Working from home also means we can give pets extra care when and where needed. We have places that we go back to regularly but also love the adventure of meeting new friends too.

We're Queenslanders but have been in Perth for a few years now and love it vey much. House sitting allows us the opportunity to visit and experience a great variety of homes, some a little off the beaten track and others in the thick of city living.
We love pet and house sitting because we love looking after pets while their families travel rather than see them go to kennels. Sometimes this can be for extra long periods of time and sometimes even for a whole year. We are also home owners with loads of experience looking after pools and gardens of all shapes and sizes and depending on size, caring for larger more time consuming properties is negotiated before agreeing to the sit. Our rural and farming backgrounds have come in handy as we also have a couple of regular farms sits that give us a welcome tree change every so often.

Our references with contact details are there for checking for your piece of mind as are our police

We will treat your home and belongings with respect and give your pets plenty of love and cuddles, yes even the cows if they're willing. We enjoy a relaxed casual lifestyle and tend to stay around home couch surfing rather than being out and about.

So... if you'd like to have a chat please send us a message or email us. It's a good idea to start with a meet and greet so you can decide if we are the right sitters for you. It's the vibe of the thing really. You'll know if it's right.

We look forward to talking to you soon.


  • NSW

Hi guys! This is me...................

* REFERENCES - National Police Clearance, Reference from real estate agent who leases my own home, character references, homeowner references - available on request. My drivers' licence can be sighted in person.

I am a professional, full-time housesitter. I DO NOT charge a fee. I own my own home on the NSW Mid North Coast. It is leased, so I now travel, meeting wonderful people & making lots of furry friends! This is not a holiday for me, but my dream lifestyle, & I take my housesitting responsibilities very seriously. I was "born to housesit" & I absolutely love it!

I am non-denominational in religion but lead a Christian lifestyle, with good family values. I do not smoke or drink, do not have parties. I am vegan, very health-focused, love exercise & being outdoors in nature. I am home a lot, so can spend lots of time with your animals, maintain property security & attend to all houseshold / gardening chores. I don't go out at night.

I am very capable, independent, healthy, happy, friendly, reliable & extremely organised. I have always owned my own home & always had pets. I enjoy a "simple life" - much happier with less material things & more quality time spent with family/friends, exercising, eating well, being in nature, being with animals. I love meeting people from "all walks of life" - especially people from different races, cultures, age groups, religions & lifestyles.

I spent many years working full-time in a NSW government department doing legal work. I spent two years working as a part-time cleaner in a high-security bank. I spent the last two years studying.

I absolutely adore all animals & believe they are a big part of any family - you can be assured that I will treat them very well & include them in all family activities. I can do grooming, give medication, am confident with disabled or elderly pets. I can handle big dogs who pull on the lead. I can walk dogs twice per day - to the beach / park / around the neighbourhood. I will give all animals lots of company, play love & attention - whatever they need to keep them happy & sticking to their routine. I can send you daily photos / texts / emails of your pets playing / walking etc, to show you they are being well cared for & to give you peace of mind. I carry an RSPCA Pet First Aid Guide, to give immediate first aid to pets if needed. I have a stationwagon with a pet/cargo barrier to take your doggies on outings if they like. I have cared for rescue pets, dogs, cats, chooks, rabbits, cows, goats, bees, fish, wild birds, caged birds, alpacas & a pony - all of which I have photos.

I am very house-proud & keep a spotless home. Your home & surrounds will be immaculate upon your return. I never wear shoes in the house, never put feet on furniture, always use coasters/tablecloths. I never eat on the lounge or walk around the house with food. My family has over 100 acres on NSW Mid North Coast - so I have experience with ride-on mowers & regular mowers. I can do whatever you need me to - collect mail, forward important mail to you, take phone messages, be home for tradesmen, put bins out, start car engine so battery doesn't go flat, water plants, gardening. weeding.
I will not use your car, phone or computer - I have my own. I will not use your microwave or dishwasher - I just don't like them. I very rarely use a dryer.
Prior to your return, I can stock the fridge/pantry. I will leave dinner & the following morning's breakfast for you. I would never have guests over without your permission.

pillows, pillowcases, mattress protectors, rice cooker, blender, water filter, kitchen tidy bags, tablecloth, household items (dishwashing liquid, handwash, toiletries, washing powder), clothes storage. I just need sheets, towels & blankets please.

I am happy to pay a bond.

I am happy to sign an agreement.

I have 2 wonderful children - aged 10 & 8. We "homeschool" on the road. They are extremely well-behaved, mature, very clean & tidy, do not break things, do not run around the house, do not wet the bed (I bring my own mattress protectors anyway), are very respectful of other people's property & absolutely adore all animals! They are very gentle & kind to animals, do not play rough & do not hurt them in any way. They have been brought up as vegan & to understand the importance of treating living things as equals. All of my previous homeowners will testify that my children are no problem at all - they are an asset - with all the love & attention they will give to your pets. You will see for yourself how well-behaved they are. They have their own references & their photos are attached.

* BEDDING - we only need a double & single bed please. And we are minimalist, which means we don't need a lost of living space.

Thankyou & look forward to hearing from you soon!

I am a mature age house and pet sitter with a background of looking after country homes and gardens in Mitchell and Mapleton.

I have worked in the Real Estate industry in Queensland and have had the responsibility of ensuring security of homes and properties in the absence of home owners.

I love to travel and housesitting has resulted in two very successful recent house sitting assignments in New Zealand & Avalon, near Palm Beach, NSW.

I have attached the references from these assignments.

I would be delighted to introduce myself to you to discuss your specific requirements and instructions in detail.

I will be able to supply more character references and housesitting references, on request.

Gwen & Tony

  • Bris. Southern suburbs

While we have owned homes in the past, we currently live and travel together on our catamaran, which is now our family home. Our only experience of house and pet sitting is for friends at this stage. (We will arrange to obtain written references). We are excited to mix up our adventures by including more house sitting in the future. We are clean and tidy and quite handy about the house. We are in our fifties, are non-smokers and enjoy walking and cycling.

We are currently looking for a house sitting opportunity from now until early February while our own home is undergoing some renovations.

Happy to provide photos of our tidy home to anyone considering us as prospective house sitters :)


  • Melbourne


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.


Leenie & Erick

  • Sydney, Melbourne

If you're looking for someone to take absolute care of your pets and your household while you're away, have no fear, we are here.

We are Leenie (34) and Erick (37). A happy couple based in Sydney. Leenie works in film and tv (costume mainly), and Erick is a freelance interior stylist/decorator. We've both had pets since we were young, and have also pet-sitted from time to time - dogs, cats, chickens, baby bunnies, and fish. We LOVE animals (especially dogs!). We manage airbnbs and usually spend a bit of time cleaning apartments, so you can be sure yours will be kept in pristine condition at all times while you're away. We are extremely trustworthy, friendly and mature. We will give your pets the attention and love they deserve. We can walk your dogs, feed, cuddle your pets, water your plants, take in your mail, take the bins out, and report daily if needed plus anything else you need done.

Because of our work we have the flexibility to live wherever we like, for much of the time. Erick has a police check and working with children check (required for his Spanish teacher jobs), and I don't have them, but it would be all clear if I did ;) At the moment we also have people looking after our airbnbs so we are looking to change up the scenery.

Many friends have entrusted us with their place while they were away, and they're always thrilled to come home to a sparkling house and well loved animals.

For absolute peace of mind, choose us!

Thanks :)


  • Syd. Eastern suburbs, Syd. Lower N Shore

Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I'm a caring and conscientious housesitter who would consider it a privilege to look after your home, pets, and property. I'm a single professional who works as a business consultant during the week and teaches meditation on weekends. I am a non-smoker, reliable, tidy, love animals and nature, very much into health and wellbeing.

I have provided a written reference pertaining to my ongoing house-sitting experience looking after a three-storey home along with two fur babies, a Burmilla cat named Zeus and a Golden Retriever named Huddy. I've been looking after them for the past three years whenever the owners are away on holidays or on short business trips. I've also been a frequent user of Airbnb over the past four years and rent out entire homes where I can. The common thread of the reviews from my hosts is that I'm very clean, considerate, house-proud, friendly, and a great communicator. They have all said I am welcome back at their homes anytime.

I am available for any length of house-sitting and happy to provide additional references upon request. Please feel free to contact me and perhaps we can meet to discuss your requirements to see whether there is a fit. I look forward to meeting you and being of service.

Amy & Emily Keely

  • Melbourne

We are very experienced house sitters and absolutely love helping others enjoy some much needed time away from home and to be able to feel relaxed and comfortable knowing their home is in good hands. The two of us currently live at home with 3 dogs each and adore looking after pooches! We are very tidy people who go a bit crazy if there is mess and we love nothing more than relaxing at home with a good movie some wine and cheese and some board games. We are both working in the city and find the commute tiring so house sitting closer to the city is always such a pleasure for us as it means less time traveling and more time at our home away from homes relaxing! We have house sat for many friends and family who are all willing to be contacted for any information on our experiences. Please reach out to us with any questions you may have and hopefully we can look after your home so you can enjoy your time away like we all deserve.

Christine & Graham

  • Brisbane, Gold Coast & Hinterland, Sunshine Coast

We are a non smoking couple who ran our companies from Western Australia until our retirement in June 2012.
Upon retirement we sold our Perth home, traveled overseas and bought a large boat which we now live on for 6 months of the year, it is currently berthed at RQYS in Queensland. We also have a caravan which we use to travel inland.
We intend living this lifestyle until we get bored (unlikely) or unable to move around the boat (likely at some point). From time to time we need a "pet fix" and as we can't take pets with us on our travels, petsitting is a good compromise.
We have a lot of experience with pets having had dogs and cats over the years.
Our daughter is a vet nurse and we have also nursed many neglected RSPCA dogs back to health whilst awaiting new owners.
We have now house sat for many families caring for dogs, cats, turtles, chickens, horses and Alpacas (not the nicest of animals). We even have past experience looking after a baby ring tailed possum, we keep adding to our list.
This year we will be available in Queensland between 10th February until early May before heading overseas.
We love animals, are very house proud and above all, we are reliable and dependable.
Verbal and written references are available on this website.
If you are interested please give us a call or respond to this message.

Hi there,
I work from home, so I'm around during the day for your pet/s.
I house sit in Melbourne. I have over 7yrs experience house sitting, including minding pets and plants/gardens.
Pets I have experience with include: dogs, cats, chooks, fish, birds, ducks, rabbits and I'm happy to mind others :) I love animals! I am fit and able to walk/run your pets, etc. I'm experienced with giving medication and special care to animals as required.
I'm very aware of home security. I'm a non-smoker and prefer to house sit for a smoke-free smelling home, thanks.
I'm in my 40’s. Your home will be peacefully kept, without upsetting your neighbours or pets. I'm tidy and like to keep it that way and respect people’s property.
Check out my excellent house sitting references and a current clear police check AND I'm a proud animal ambassador with the RSPCA Vic.
I look forward to hearing from you to discuss your needs.

Hello house and pet owners!

My name is Olivia, I'm 27 years old and I'm looking to do some house and pet sitting around Melbourne. I've lived in share housing for many years as well as had multiple house and pet sit gigs along the way.

I absolutely adore cats and dogs but haven't been able to own my own as of yet due to share housing. If you happen to have a pet that is just an extra incentive for me!

I work on an ever changing schedule as I freelance, this means that I can be around as much or as little as I need to be. I'm mature, reliable, respectful and extremely clean and tidy.

Several references and contact numbers can be provided upon request, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions at all. I look forward to your messages!

  • Sydney


We're Joella and Jonny an enthusiastic and caring couple from the UK, exploring the wonders of this beautiful country. With previous pet sitting experience and an eye for adventure we are here to become your pet's best buddies.

Having been brought up with a variety of animals (stick insects, fish, gerbils, hamsters, rats, cats, dogs and horses), we'll be at home with whatever animal(s) you'd like us to take extra care of. We also recognise the need for keeping to any necessary exercise and dietary regimes for your animal and happy to keep you updated along the way.

We are both non smokers, very tidy and considerate people when it comes to taking care of your home. We left our flat back in London with some lovely tenants and understand how important that is.

We have really enjoyed house/pet sitting so far in Australia, we've looked after wonderful animals, explored new areas and met their lovely owners. We are now based in Sydney, Jonny works for a creative agency as a project manager and I work part time teaching art in Mosman so someone will always be around looking after your pets.

Some references have been added below, we are happy to pass on contact details for any of our past house sits, just let us know.

Hope to hear from you soon :)
