Hello I am a mature female, Registered Nurse and animal lover. I have recently taken time off work to study full time by correspondence. This means I am able to take care of your home and animals on a full time basis.
I am currently based in Perth but will be moving to Melbourne mid July and intend to continue house sitting there. I am happy to speak with home owners via Skype or by phone as I understand how important it is to meet with the prospective house sitter as this is a trust relationship where all parties need to feel comfortable with the arrangement made together.
I am very quiet, respectful, and trustworthy.
House and pet sitting is perfect for me at the moment as I am not working while I am studying so I have plenty of time to look after your much loved pets and gardens if need be.
Studying by correspondence means I will always be at your home and can work study time around caring for your animals and home.
I have excellent references and a police clearance.
I look forward to meeting you and looking after your much loved pets so that you can go away worry free.
Thankyou.
Lainie

We are a couple in our early 60’s – recently retired who enthusiastically enjoy house sitting because it allows us to provide a valuable personalized service to home owners. Nothing gives us more pleasure than making home owners feel comfortable with being away from home, knowing their house is in good hands until the owner's return. We're very grateful to all our wonderful clients for the opportunities they have granted us through inviting us into their homes and lives. We receive trust, and in exchange, we provide loving care. We are non-smokers who are honest, reliable and dependable house sitters who will respect your property and personal things. Our background was in education. We have owned a home and are fully conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house (including a pool) maintained. Also we have had pets that lived very long comfortable lives because we treated them as part of our family. We will care for your pets as if they were part of our own family. We have had experience in house/pet sitting before and we have references available on request.

My name is Michael Mathews. I have been house and pet minding since 2008
I do have a web page which has many testimonials:
www.perthhousesitters.com.au
I am a mature male, single, very strong and healthy and very experienced with all types of animals.
I am a non smoker, non drinker and have a current police clearance certificate.
I am neat and tidy and take the house sitting commitment very seriously. An attitude of "she'll be OK mate" does not belong in the house sitting industry.
I am meticulous and thorough and I always look upon myself as the "Occupational Health and Safety Officer" for your pets.
The reason I got into pet minding was because I had been living with my partner for many years.
She had 4 lovely pets. When we went our separate ways she took all her pets. I rented a unit and whenever I arrived home and opened the front door, I would experience a feeling of loneliness. There was just no life force, no energy...no pets to play with, no happiness, no laughter. It is not much fun watching TV without a cat on the couch and a dog at your feet.
To get my daily "pet fix" I started house sitting and I can honestly say that the last few years have been the most joyful, blissful and rewarding years of my life.
Over the past few years I have looked after hundreds of pets, including 26 Alpacas, big dogs like Rottys, little dogs like Chihuahuas, fast dogs like Huskies, asthmatic cats on ventolin pumps, ducks, fish ponds, chickens, bird aviaries, horses and elephants (only joking... but I would be happy to give it a go...imagine picking up their daily poo in a yellow poo bag!!!)
I recently looked after a vets pets...3 cats, 2 dogs, 2 birds and 2 ferrets...they peed and pood everywhere but that is part of the job.
I have looked after pets in the suburbs and on farms, even had to learn to drive a tractor to pick up all the Alpaca poo, and mow the grass with a drive on mower.

I travelled east in 2015 after having lived in Perth for 18 years. I am wanting to do more house-sits and will be leaving my little girl =^:^= with a house-sitter until I eventually settle somewhere, although perhaps I won't settle and will continue to enjoy house sitting and looking after dogs, cats, birds etc.

I am an empathic person and love all animals (maybe not snakes and spiders!) and would treat your animals lovingly. I want to house-sit because I don't know where I want to settle. I am a very organised person and if left details of what is required I will gladly carry these out. I do not smoke and would rather be in a non-smoking environment. I am a very clean person and know how to keep a house clean, neat and tidy.

I like a nice garden and will make sure that the sprinkler system is working properly or that the garden is getting watered if it is dry. I can also look after a pool too! I am a friendly person and would love to meet you and your pets, and maybe also the neighbours. I have had dogs and cats as pets and years ago a bird also. I would treat your pets as you would treat them including loving them to bits!

There are two excellent references on me but I would also like to say that I have volunteered with Lifeline, working as a crisis supporter for people in need, a few hours a week. To do this empathy and caring are needed which I have in abundance, which can also transfer to pet and house-sitting.

For your interest, this is my home I have recently sold: http://www.realestate.com.au/property-house-wa-leeming-118633839

  • NSW, Darwin, QLD, TAS, VIC, WA

(Sorry but we are fully booked for the rest of 2017) Hi, my husband and I are recently retired teachers 61 and 62 who have lived and worked in the same area for 32 years. Of course as teachers we had regular police checks and we can also provide references. After retirement we went to Canada, Hawaii, Far North Queensland and Tasmania. Yes we have caught the travel bug! We are friendly, reliable and caring and now that our children have grown up and our beloved pets passed away we are rattling around our house with time on our hands. As a retired couple we are available for any length of time and we can plan to house sit everywhere in Australia for the next 12 months to 24 months after which time we hope our children will provide us with grandchildren to spoil. As my husband Ross is a very keen fisherman we try for locations close to good fishing areas.
We love animals and we always look after all our friends and neighbours pets, houses, gardens and mail when they are away. One of them suggested pet and house sitting as it involves travelling, animals and gardening!
We will take meticulous care of your house, mail, indoor plants, veggie gardens and lovingly look after dogs, cats, birds, fish, chooks, rabbits and guinea pigs. We are more than happy to be in touch with you prior to the pet and house sit and we can also give you updates during your trip so get in touch with us any time to discuss your needs and travel dates as we can accommodate our time to suit your needs.
We prefer the northern areas of Australia during the winter months and we are looking forward to a visit to New Zealand in 2018. Ross is a keen fisherman and gardener, I adore reading and writing and tend to be more of a home body and we both really enjoy seeing new sights and meeting new people. You can leave knowing we will take extremely good care of your pets, house and garden and while you’re away. Ross and I are looking forward to getting to know you and giving your pets our love and attention. Prior to handover we would prefer a written list of your requirements and instructions including your mobile number and email address so we can make contact and get to know each other prior to your trip. We know the importance of trust in this relationship and can assure you of our honesty and love of animals, in fact we have found the hardest part of pet sitting is saying goodbye to the pets because we grow so fond of them.

  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, Melbourne, WA

Hi, I am a reliable and experienced choice for house sitting. I'm currently looking for a new abode and don't want to rush into anything so I'm house sitting while I look. I have looked after 2 cats, a few dogs and some fish for friends when they've been away. I am also a clean and respectful person who has always maintained the garden, collected mail and kept the house clean. I also always make sure that the owners return to a spotless and tidy house. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Regards, Larissa.

  • ACT, Sydney, Northern Rivers, Tweed Coast, Bris. Southern suburbs, Gold Coast & Hinterland, SA, TAS, WA

My name is Rose. I am currently living between Sydney, Lismore and the Gold Coast while I complete a professional Doctorate researching early colonial history. My husband and dog live on a sheep farm in central NSW and our children are married with lives of their own. Between us we have 5 granddaughters who we adore.

The reason I am looking at housesitting is because I love animals and miss my own; so would like to spend a little bit of time taking care of yours. About me, I have always been a home owner, and am extremely clean and tidy. I am very security concious, do not smoke, am not into parties and can take very good care of your home while you are away. I can provide a current Police Check along with references for you to consider.

I am happy to chat with you and also meet in person to say hi to your pet/s and allow you the opportunity to discuss your needs and requirements.

My availability is from mid January 2017 onwards.

Thanks kindly Rose

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 !

  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are a trustworthy, reliable, friendly & house-proud family**PLEASE READ BELOW RE FAMILY HOUSESITS**.
We will treat your beloved pets & home like they are our own. We are non-smokers and only sit non-smoking homes. We adore animals & will treat them kindly & with respect. If they have special needs we understand that and can discuss your needs.
We have extensive experience caring for cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, chickens, chicks, some farm animals, birds, fish & gardens. Unfortunately we can't care for cats anymore as Melissa developed an allergy to cat hair - unless they are hairless! All other cuddly/crazy critters considered though :-)
We have previous police checks, through careers & neighbourhood watch (Previous NHW Area Coordinators). We have previous & current security clearances through Federal & State govt agencies. Melissa has a current working with vulnerable people check (full background & police check).
Previous police/security experience and RSPCA experience.

We hope to hear from you.

*** 2017 Availability: 1 Oct onwards *** Preferred area: Melbourne and surrounds, Victoria.

Hello! I'm a responsible and house proud non-smoker with a vast 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 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.

  • Reduced Contact

I am a happy, friendly, 60 year old semi-retired house-sitter who is a fit, non-smoking, mature female; honest, reliable, house and garden proud. I grew up on a farm thus have familiarity, experience, patience and love for animals and pets, having grown up caring for many various pets of my own.

I have a passion for gardening and landscaping; I have the time to care for, walk and empathize with your pet/s missing their owner/s while keeping your home safe and as you left it. I have always owned my own homes and worked in responsible professional positions; married for 37 years to an electrician who works away six months of the year, with adult independent children living interstate pursuing professional careers.

I will respect your home, garden and beloved pets with the care I show my own. I can supply a Police Check, Working with Children Check (pets are our children!), House Owners and character references when required.

I am willing to listen carefully to your instructions, preferences & requirements. Thank-you, Dianne :)

  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are a mature couple (68 and 72 year olds) non drinkers and non smokers. Fit and able to do garden and walk pet. We like to ride our bikes to explore whatever region we may visit.
The idea is to head north each year to escape the southern winters.

Graham


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, WA

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. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks :)

Available from 19 November 2014.

Benjamin & Casey


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

Benjamin (32), Casey (32) and Willem (3) are a small family based in Melbourne. Benjamin is a postgraduate research student in international relations at the University of Melbourne and Casey is a full-time visual artist, specialising in ink paintings. We are a healthy-living and non-smoking family, that love to travel, enjoy nature and the great outdoors, and getting active (exercising, hiking and exploring.)

In 2017, Benjamin is writing a thesis on Australia-Japan relations, and Casey is further developing her business and profile as an artist. This flexibility to work from any location will enable them to spend some time travelling amongst exhibition/research commitments.

Benjamin and Casey have both grown up around dogs, with Benjamin's family home never having less than 2-3 dogs at a time, and Casey growing up with a mixture of cats, dogs and horses. They have both grown up on semi-rural properties, and Benjamin also spent childhood holidays on the family farm near Esperance, tending to sheep, lambs and farm dogs.

Together, they have had experience house-sitting in city apartments, suburban homes and rural farms, happily adapting to the tasks and responsibilities unique to each. Whether it is caring for pets or tending to gardens and swimming pools, they take pride in maintaining the houses and properties they are entrusted with, and caring for furry friends! Willem has relished in these opportunities too. References are available upon request.

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.
Hope we can assist each other .

Anna


  • WA

I am a 34 years old Police Auxiliary Officer.
I arrived as an international student to Perth in September 2007 with my ex-husband.
We had been sharing a house with a lady for a year, and since 2008 we were doing house-sitting for others, who can all give their recommendation: we kept properties clean and tidy, and we are both reliable and trustworthy.

(Non-smokers,non-drinkers, by the way.)
We became permanent residents in February 2012 and now we are Australian Citizens since 2014.
Unfortunately our marriage did not work out and now I do house-sitting by myself. We still support each other, coming form a different culture it is important for both of us.

A little about me:
I completed a Diploma in
Community Welfare Work, have a Cert IV in Project management and working as a Police Auxiliary Officer since November 2013.
I miss our cats and dogs, who had to
stay at home
in
Hungary, and I hope we can take care of any kind
of animal(s).
We would be more than
happy to
take care about a house, garden, or your pets!

Please see our references and I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Brian & Jill


  • ACT, NSW, Brisbane, South Eastern, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

We are early retirees who began our house-sitting in early December 2016. Prior to that we were house-sitting my sister's house in Cairns & decided we would like to experience lots of different areas of Australia as residents rather than as tourists.
The animals we enjoy and have experience with are dogs, cats, guinea pigs, chooks and birds. However since our elderly dog died in December 2012, we have not taken on any new pets, as we retired shortly afterwards and took to some short-term travelling.
We are clean and tidy and are both non-smokers and non-drinkers. My husband is a keen runner and pushbike rider and I enjoy long walks.
We can provide references if requested.

Lesley


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

I am in a transition stage this year, having put my home in storage at New Year and I'm undertaking full time house sitting while I live in different suburbs and the surrounding areas of Sydney. Eventually I aim to buy an apartment and will either rent it out or live in it. In the last twelve months I sold a business after building it up over twenty years and moved out of a townhouse where I had lived for twelve years. I am undertaking a masters degree by research this year and next so I have a lot of time to stay "in" if required which will suit pet owners. I have been enjoying the house sitting community and it suits my current life of studying and doing much less work.

I love animals and, apart from the last 5 years, have had pets of all descriptions most of my life. An inner-city person now, I have lived in different places over the years including by the ocean, on a river and on a farm over twenty years ago and raised animals of all kinds from baby lambs and calves to cats, dogs and birds. I pet sit for friends when they are away and the pets always take to me quickly as I do them.

I have worked in the arts and business for twenty five years and now run a small home based business as well as my study which does not require attendance at class. I have grown children who are totally independent and I feel this is my time to explore new ideas and live in new areas. House sitting is a great way to live in new areas and transition to a new home eventually for myself. I am very responsible, a garden and pet lover. I do need to stay within commuting distance of Sydney for study and family.

Marc & Jody


  • ACT, NSW, Alice Springs, Darwin, QLD, SA, TAS, Melbourne, SE Vic, WA

We are a small family from Holland. Marc, Jody and our little 2 year old daughter Saar.

We want to see all of Australia, so we are looking for housesits anywhere.

We want to stay in Melbourne until april.
However between mid february and beginning of march we are looking for a housesit somewhere else. Who lives outside of Victoria and needs a housesit in that period? Let us know!

We love animals, have 2 dogs in Holland, but prefer not to sit dogs here as we want to be able to go for days aways once in a while.
Cats are no problem.

LONG TIME SITTER HOST & HOME OWNER

Introduction
Hello - I am at a time of life where I am available to be the brilliant house and pet sitter you are looking for. I am a single professional, self-employed Australian with two adult sons (pursuing their own careers). With no family around me, I no longer need to be based in one location. I enjoy the freedom that house sitting offers where I can be a devoted animal lover to other people's pets while enjoying your location. Being agile and moving to different cities suits my Internet based (email traffic, not heavy downloads) work very well and as I have lived in almost all of Australia's capitals & various cities overseas, I am very much at home wherever I am.
I will consider any sit with a preference for long house sits (3-12months). I am open to being in any location, city or region…here are some of my favourites: NYC, Spain, Malta, Central America, Chile, most countries in Europe and NZ. I am self employed as a facilitator and executive coach where I conduct my work 'virtually' via the Internet & Skype. This means I can work anywhere as long as I have fast, reliable Internet.

Why I want to house sit
Through past house sitting experience, I recognise the value of house sitting to pet lovers & security for your home while giving me flexibility & variety in lifestyle. I have travelled extensively over the years and am resourceful and socially inclusive. Your pets and home will receive my responsible and loving attention and I will be proactive by staying in touch to keep you informed about how everything is going without being a burden. You can learn more about me via my LinkedIn and business websites which I'd be happy to send you, along with my CV, biography and character referees, for information. I live simply and cleanly and will be very respectful of your home, belongings, security and privacy. I own a car, however, for overseas or remote/ distance house sits, I’d welcome the use of a car if possible please.

My experience & promise to you
I promise warmth, openness, transparency and genuine care of your pet family and your home. I am pleased to have 'home based' work so I offer a strong presence & companionship for your home & pets. I have been an Australian Army Officer with a top secret positive vet security clearance (21yr), consultant to most Australian Commonwealth Govt departments, 3yrs as deputy chair and director Crime Stoppers & National Trust boards. I pride myself on maintaining high integrity, sound judgement, balance, reliability and being a proactive communicator. I'm also a very loving and gentle person with animals. You can depend on me to keep you informed, make decisions about your pets and home with your priorities in mind. I am comfortable with all types of animals and those with special needs. I will reach out to those in your immediate community network, as advised by you, if needed. I've been a home owner for 25yr, an animal lover for life and I know the value of a quality house sitter. I've had the joy of 7yrs great housing sitting experience myself as a host with my own house sitter, so I fully understand and respect the responsibility that comes with this position. I am also a 'live-in' sitter for people with frequent short absences, so I am there while you come and go.

My aim is to give you absolute peace of mind while you are absent while having a cost effective home solution for myself (as a 'local'!) in a new environment. I look forward to getting to know you and your pet family! My previous hosts are all happy to chat with you and I can email you their references if you wish. Wherever possible, if I am in your city, I will always try to meet with you and your pets in advance of the sit so we know 'everyone' is comfortable. Warmly, Lisa

NOTE: I AM COMMITTED WITH HOUSE SITS UNTIL JUN17 & THAT'S GREAT….. HAPPY TO DISCUSS SITS BEYOND THEN. I AM AVAILABLE FOR LATE 2017/2018. Let's chat!

Patrick


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

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.

I have excellent references. A police check. I don't smoke.
I am a friendly respectful guy who is very clean and tidy
Cheers, Patrick

Richard


  • ACT, NSW, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC, WA

I am a single, mature aged, non-smoking gentleman with experience in house and pet sitting.

As a recently retired school teacher, I am looking for an opportunity to extend myself and broaden my travelling experience by living in an area for longer than a fleeting visit as is usually the case when taking a holiday from work.
I enjoy gardening, reading, cooking, walking, and recently, craft creations.

Whilst not having my own pets these days, I have had the rather usual menagerie of a cat, dogs, fish, guinea pigs, white mice and chooks.

I have a reference and photos which are attached.
I look forward to be of assistance.

Regards

Richard
