Karen & Russ


  • Alice Springs, Darwin, SA, VIC, WA

Hi, we are a semi retired couple in our late fifties taking some time out to travel this beautiful country of ours. Completing the lap in our caravan we are looking for opportunities to stop, park up and explore and housesitting provides an ideal way to do so.
We are experienced housesitters, are very trustworthy and dependable, we are both non smokers and only light social drinkers. 
As home owners we understand of the importance of looking after your house and we will treat your property and personal things as we would treat our own - with the utmost respect, keeping your property clean, tidy and secure, caring for it until your return home. We are also very happy to look after your lawn and garden whilst your house is in our care.
We are both animal lovers and will look after your pets in accordance with your directions and just like your house, we will treat your fur babies like they are our own. We have extensive experience with dogs, in particular greyhounds and up until starting our journey we were fostering rescues for GAP.
We are happy to send you updates and pics of your pets to show you they are happy, safe and well cared for.

Susan & David


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC


Hi! We are a mature aged, professional couple who own a home in Byron Bay and love travelling and discovering new places!

We are both self-employed (David is a book publisher and Susan is a bookkeeper/BAS agent) and can work from home. We collectively have passions for books/knowledge, food, nature, animals, travel, music, the arts, and life!

We previously house/pet sat in 2013 for 4 weeks at Coolum Beach, Queensland. This homeowner has now re-engaged us for 7 weeks and we are currently taking care of her resort style apartment at Kawana Island, and her delightful puss Phil! (Phil is modelling in our profile pictures.)

In 2019 we’ve decided to house/pet sit for 12 months and will be accruing references along the way. Two references from jobs done in the past are uploaded on our profile and more character references are available on request.

We have also spent the past 5 years offering our spare room in Byron Bay on AirBnB and quickly achieved Superhost status. We have many outstanding reviews from our guests who consistently rated us highly on the meticulously clean presentation of our home, and our warm, friendly, helpful attitude. We ensure that our guests have the best experience possible. A link to these reviews is available.

It goes without saying that we would treat your home with the utmost care, and lavish loads of love and affection onto your precious pets! We adore animals and are hoping that house/pet sitting will be able to fulfill our desires for both travel and animals simultaneously.

We are very flexible with our dates and locations and are willing to travel far and wide.

If you’re looking for a happy, reliable, trustworthy, pet-loving couple who like to go the extra mile then please contact us to discuss your house/pet sitting needs. If distance prevents a personal meeting beforehand we are always available for a ‘cyber meeting’ on Skype!

We wish you all many happy holiday experiences and wonderful travel adventures and hope to meet you and your pets soon.

I currently live and work in Melbourne, living in a share household. I house sit as I also enjoy having time to myself. I also love caring for pets. Over the past years I have sat on many occasions with many homeowners asking me back to sit for them.

I will take really good care of your pets. I genuinely enjoy both cats and dogs. I Like taking dogs for walks and offering lots of affection. Same for cats too...except the walking.

Will also take good care of your property and leave it in an excellent condition.

Helpful Happy House Sitters

Hello!
We understand that leaving your home and animals in the care of house sitters for extended periods can be very stressful, but we can assure you that your home and extended family will be treated with kind and loving hands.

We are a middle aged couple whom sold our restaurant business and are now travelling this wonderful country of ours, and would like to offer our services to house sit your home while you do whatever your need or want to do elsewhere.

We travel with a budgie, but we used to have other pets before leaving Brisbane over a year ago and they are sadly missed.

Bobbie owned and operated a small animal refuge in the USA before coming to Australia and we would welcome looking after your own beloved pets if you so need.
We also have farm sitting experience, care of horses, chooks, galahs, geese i.e. farm animals.

Also, Bobbie has been a house cleaner both in the USA and in Australia. She worked for a well known Dr and his family in Brisbane over 4+ years.

We are clean and respectful and would treat your home the same as we would our own, treating your home as a home should be treated.

We will do any house cleaning or garden duties required while you are gone, if you wish, to maintain a nice clean home, ready for your return.

We are on no real time limit, being without any real commitments to any place at this time.

We believe ourselves to be reliable and trustworthy and hope to hear from you in the near future to make arrangements.

Hi there, I'm a semi retired 50 something male (non smoker) who looks after people's pets and homes. I have had many happy clients, including lots of dogs and cats and horses and cows (see pics); I'm sure their owners are happy too.

I have many references from pet owners who you can speak to; including police personnel, doctors and business owners, so you can check my bona fides.

I have much rural experience and I'm rather handy with tractors, diggers, ride on lawn mowers, chainsaws and the like. Homes in my care have varied from farms to cute cottages to executive palaces and high security homes.

My preferences are northern rivers of NSW / sthn Queensland and the greater Sydney area, and now, Melbourne. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks :)

Hello,

We are a non-smoking, mature aged couple who will look after your home and pets as if they were your own. We are willing to travel to most areas of Australia. At the moment we are looking for a house-sit in NSW, Victoria or Q'ld, but are willing to consider/travel other states. We are experienced house sitters, having done many sits over recent years including many return requests.

Our reasons for house sitting are simple. It gives us the opportunity of seeing different parts of this beautiful country, and it also to gives us the opportunity to provide the home owner with peace of mind that their home and animal/s will be extremely well cared for, should we be granted that privilege.

We take pride in what we do, being both neat and tidy. We enjoy a quiet life, are very capable, employ common sense and take care of things the way we would hope some-one would do for us.

We have cared for many different animals, cats (many varieties including Ragdoll, Himalayan, Russian Blue, Birman, Burmese, Siamese, much loved long haired and short haired moggies, all with different personalities and requirements, some indoor only felines). We have cared for number dogs (Malamut-cross, Border Collie, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Staffy, Flatcoat Retriever, Labradoodle, Swiss Shepherd to name a few), fish, chickens and cows a herd of 20+. In recent times we can add sheep and goats. We have looked after suburban properties and rural/semi-rural with water tanks and septic systems, pumps and bio-cycles.

We can provide excellent references upon request. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Helen & Tony


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

We are two retired, active, music and food loving schoolteachers with a penchant for travelling and enjoying new experiences. We have been involved in house and pet sitting for many years and in many places throughout Australia and overseas. While we have a home in Adelaide, we enjoy a nomadic lifestyle in our motorhome, which makes it unfair to have pets of our own. Housesitting allows us to indulge our love of animals and over the years we have cared for many dogs, cats, birds, horses, sheep, goats, cattle and the like, with dogs, whether big and boisterous or small and cuddly, being our special love. We are 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.

Loretta


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

I have been an owner of dogs for 20 years. I am pet friendly, responsible and reliable. I am of good character and trustworthy both with your home and your pets - something that is very important to me, and I empathise with the decision to have someone in your home taking care of your precious pets. When I go away I have pet sitters come to my home so my dogs are in a safe familiar environment in my absence. I am fit and healthy (non smoker) and am able to walk dogs and maintain a clean house. I will respect your home and your privacy. My partner is a stock agent. He is very capable with all requisites re the land and animals. He has cats and aviaries and Ollie the cockatoo. He is a real farm gem. He also works as a gardener on a property in the Western District. He is very capable and versatile and can and will turn his hand to anything. I am interested in house sits by myself, or with Wes, depending on your requirements. I do have references on this site, from previous happy pet owners. Hope we can assist each other ..

Reference for Lucy and Murray Pollard
Lucy and Murray house-sat our 2 very precious schnoodles for 4 nights recently (July 2015). I couldn’t have asked for better sitters! They visited beforehand to meet our dogs and I immediately felt very comfortable that Lucy and Murray would take great care of our dogs. They were very dedicated to looking after the dogs and respectful of our apartment, leaving it spic and span. Our dogs were very happy in their company as Lucy and Murray happily followed the daily routine we requested, including letting them sleep in their bed with them. I will definitely ask them to sit for us again.

Reference — Lucy Sdao & Murray Pollard
In March 2015 we embarked on a 5 week trip and was looking for someone to housesit and care for our dog and rabbit. Fortunately Lucy & Murray were able to help us out.
Lucy and Murray kept in contact throughout our trip with updates on our elderly dog Hank who required some additional care with medicine. We were very happy to also receive
photos of Murray and Hank together!
The house was left immaculately with not a thing out of place. In fact the only evidence that we found of their stay was some food in the cupboards — they even left the wheelie bin
empty!
Lucy and Murray were fantastic housesitters and we would be more than happy to recommend them to anyone.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

Lucy & Murray of Avalon Sydney NSW were house sitters at my home x 6 weeks September & early October 2015.

I have 4 dogs and it seems, during my absence, they loved them to death ! the dogs totally fell in love with Murray and Murray with the dogs. Although the criteria was to walk the dogs once a day, my neighbours tell me they often saw my sitters walking the dogs twice a day.

On my return, the house was kept in fine order, very tidy and clean and the garden was taken care of also.

I would welcome Lucy and Murray a return house sit here if they were available and would recommend them as reliable dog lovers.

If further information is required please do not hesitate to ask for phone contact number.

Introduction

We are a mature and friendly retired couple, professional,practical and resilient in new situations, and look forward to new homes and pets to care for. We are non smokers, tidy, active,gardeners, and keen to explore new communities. We have already enjoyed 5 house and pet sits both in Australia and overseas with another organisation in the last year, with excellent references. We appreciate Happy House Sitters because it it has such a range of Australia wide clients, and is easy to access.
We would take care of your home and pets, as we would our own, and keep them safe and happy until you return.

Why we want to house sit

House and pet sitting is appealing because of the built in adventure and novelty of such diverse opportunities. We have enjoyed much travel in Australia and overseas, ship, caravan, camping, coast, desert and bush, but would look forward to the interest of connecting with the everyday life in new communities. Many sits give insight to the places less travelled, rather than big tourism locations, and Mike is a keen historian where ever we are.
0ur creatures are an essential part of life, but the extra additions to the 'family', "step grand-dogs,cats..and one day hopefully, alpacas!!'', will have all the love and care we can give in the allocated time!

What we bring to the assignment / relevant experience

We have lived in city and country, in town houses and on acreages, and had donkeys, dogs, cats, chooks, and sheep! Our experience in education, country and city communities,gardening, house repairs,and dealing with the emergencies of life, makes us useful Sitters! Having a good sense of humor helps too.We have police checks,and house sitting references.
We currently have an old beagle/terrier x, Maggie May, a dear rescue dog, who, as we speak, is snuffling her way through seaweed and beach sand! We love our entertaining chooks, and their produce! Harry the Cat sadly left us after 12 years of slothful existence!
Do contact us if your place and pets seem like a good match!

I have been housesitting on and off for over 20 years yet currently taking this year off from full-time work and house sitting. When I owned my home we had 2 x dogs, 2 x cats and 2 x birds and a community of different Aquarium fish. I have my National Police Clearance and check out my facebook page "your place for pets". My services include live in duties, daily walks, watering gardens and confident in applying medication when required. I've paid to register on this site to fill in the gaps and help out where I can. I really enjoy it and I love animals and the beautiful energy and character that they share with me. Its a privilege to be graced by each one I meet and care for them for you.

We are an older couple. We own our own home and we recently lost our little dog who had been with us for 17.5 years. Our little dog was certainly "part of the family". We love all types of animals.
We are retired. Peter is a retired Senior Sergeant with the Victoria Police. He still works in the judicial system as a Justice of the Peace. I have a current Police Check. I was a teacher/school counselor.
We have had experience house sitting and we do know how we would like people to respect our property so naturally we would do the same for others.
We really love to travel and visit new places.
We enjoy walking and reading when we are on holidays.
Your house would be left just the way we found it on arrival.
We can provide references if required.

I am a responsible, clean and considerate 37year old. I do not smoke.
I grew up on a dairy farm where we also had horses, dogs, rabbits and of course cows so I love animals and being outdoors.

We are on the road to retirement & looking forward to the next stage in our life, we are still doing some work via the internet & this means that we will be around for most of the time to care & watch over everything for you.

As well as travelling & having new experiences along the way, we have found that house sitting really suits us as it is so comforting to stay in a friendly home environment & if there are pets or animals to look after, then their company is an added bonus!

We love animals & wildlife & have had a long experience in caring for dogs, cats & farm animals. Unfortunately we no longer have our own pets, so we would welcome the opportunity to care for yours.

Over the years we have also had extensive experience in house & garden maintenance having renovated our own properties & also as sitters, we have cared for a number of different types of homes & properties ranging from large farms through to smaller homes & units.

We do understand that everyone's house & pets are different & we seriously take this on board & listen to each individuals requests & we will follow through with meeting your specific requirements while we stay & promise to keep you updated while you are away.

The opportunity to become your house sitter would be a great privilege & something we would not take for granted, as we both understand it is a necessity to respect your house & property & keep it well maintained while in residence.

We are both non smokers, healthy & happy people & look forward to hearing from you.

If required we can provide further reputable references & recommendation contacts.


Hope to hear from you !

Susie & Gary

Hello homeowners, I have relocated to Adelaide to take up housesitting full time.
Many of my sits over the last three years have been with and through friends and personal referrals.
I have excellent rental references from my past rentals and a National Police Clearance.
I am a healthy, clean living non smoker. I enjoy walking and love to be outdoors gardening or alternatively, curled up with a good book and an animal or two for company.

Wayne & Jennifer


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are experienced Aussie housesitters, retired accountant and agricultural scientist, grey nomads, non smokers, and both dog and cat lovers, having owned our own pets all our lives, and looked after numerous and various animals as housesitters for other homeowners, like yourselves. My husband and I were introduced to the concept of housesitting when we retired in July 2005. Since then, we have combined travel with housesitting in Australia, New Zealand, England and Europe and made lifelong friends along the way. So far, we have undertaken 120+ housesits over the past 14 years since retiring from full time employment. For ourselves during the course of our life, we have owned large dogs; boxers and german shepherds – all obedience trained - also cats, fish and poultry. We both retired from our jobs in the Northern Territory and sold our home, with a swimming pool, owned for 20 years. We plan on continuing to travel whilst we are healthy and until we get the travel bug out of our system. Our motto is to treat your home and pets as we would expect our own home and pets to be treated - with respect, love and care.
I was born and bred on a farm in South Australia, lived there for 21 years before moving to the Northern Territory, where my working life continued as an accountant. My husband is a Queenslander, and worked as an agricultural scientist in 2 Australian states, during the course of his working career.
We can provide written references, photos and police clearances, if you require further info. – but basically, we are just ‘grey nomads’ – enjoying retirement and travelling around England, Europe and Australia whilst we still have our health and are able to travel. Thanks for your time

We have a mobile coffee van that we operate at events to earn a bit of extra money. I have been secretary of our local show society for 20 years and worked at our local paper for 32 years. My husband worked at a timber mill for 30 years prior to retiring. We take pride in our home and respect other people's property.
We love touring the countryside and know that we would love housesitting.

Hi!!!

I'm a 33 yo Graphic Designer who has been freelancing running my small business for the last 5 years.
In a sea of pet sitting profiles, I decided to use a sense of humor with my one - I hope it makes you smile :)
I can work anywhere there is a wifi connection (or I can bring my own, no problems).
So this means your pets will always have company and cuddles.
I have no children and no pets and am a completely free agent. No sit is too long or too short.

I like to keep fit, so daily walks are always guaranteed. And always happy to venture out on the weekends for adventures to park walks or the beach.
I have my own car so getting around isn't an issue.
A Gippsland girl at heart - I have always been brought up in a household full of animals - whether it's dogs, cats, fish, bunnies, cows, donkeys, chickens - you name it.
I'll look after it. I love to listen to music and cook. I love to read and pursue my business/passion projects - so you'll always find me behind my mac most nights.
I love hiking and getting outdoors. I don't smoke and like to have the occasional glass of red.

I would really love to have a pet of my own - but as I am renting this isn't possible. So I'd love to look after yours.
My friends even bought me a french bulldog pillow to fill the void- I've called him George and he currently guards my couch.

My rental is has 3 balconies full of plants so am happy to be your green thumb too. I treat and respect my house like my own and have always had long-term rentals of 5+ years, with full back and front yards. I was always the gardener in the household and a lot of pride in presentation and cleanliness.
I have been criticised for being too clean - so I'll make sure your home is in the same condition as you left it.
Happy to always meet face to face before you go away for a coffee.

I think petsitting is a great way to experience different areas of Victoria.
It's also a great way to meet fellow animal lovers like myself and as a barefoot investor, I think this is a great way to save for those financial goals.
If this sounds like we match - let's get in touch. Go and enjoy yourself while you are away and I'll take care of the rest!

Hi there!

We are Tom 35y/o and Agnes 34y/o. We are married and are very friendly, helpful and reliable and can be trusted to take care of your home and pets.

We are looking to take part in longer house sits so you, therefore, can be reassured that our main goal is to house sit for you in a very satisfactory manner.

We love house sitting and have long and short-term house sitting experience in Adelaide and Melbourne all of which have involved looking after the house owner’s pets. References are available upon request.

We both work in the Security industry and hold South Australian and Victorian security licenses. This requires that we both carry out national police and fingerprint checks. We can supply the police checks to you upon request.

A few years ago we owned a Floristry business so we have a passion for flowers and plants. Our love of animals has given us experience looking after dogs, cats, guinea pigs, mice, birds and you can throw in a turtle too!

In summary, we are hard working, very clean, security conscious and know how to look after pets and gardens.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our profile and we look forward to possibly working with you.

Kind Regards

Tom and Agnes
