Testimonials

Having Erica and Alan to house sit our two precious pooches was a wonderful experience for us. Our holiday was hassle free from the first moment we met (three months before we left). They had great communication whilst we were away. Coming home the dogs didn't even go way too crazy as they usually do. They had been kept to their routines and were very relaxed, their time without us was obviously stress free. Our house was spotless and we highly recommend Erica and Alan as your house sitters. House Sitting Tasmania provides a wonderful service with their easy to navigate website. They have numerous house sitters with great reviews and recommendations. Thank you for your wonderful service and for connecting us to Erica and Alan.

We asked Karen and Andrew to house sit our home to care for our much loved pet dog Macy. We became aware that Karen and Andrew were professional house sitters when we joined House Sitting Tasmania and we were aware of the credentials of this community that it's house sitting members were vetted and reputable. On this basis we had no problems in arranging to meet them and discuss the potential of caring for Macy whilst we were away for 7 weeks.

At the first meeting we were offered references for prior house sitting arrangements as well as police checks. We were also asked to complete a questionnaire about our expectations and details of the house and Macy’s habits (which are particular and demanding). We took this as a very promising sign that they were very professional and would care for Macy and our home as we would hope they would. Indeed it was obvious to us that both Karen and Andrew are animal lovers and from the first meeting we could see that there was a mutual warmth between them and Macy

Whilst we were away we received an email each Wednesday and Sunday as arranged telling us about Macy and her regular outings (they kept her well exercised and groomed). We also loved seeing the many beautiful photographs of Macy they sent too. During our absence there were no problems and Macy and our home were obviously well cared for. Indeed we took Macy to the Vet for her annual injections and check-up the week we got home. The vet told us that she was fit and in excellent health.

Our house was beautifully presented and clean, there were flowers in a vase and an assortment of fresh food left for us to enjoy. It was as though we had not been away. We were so pleased with the outcome that we have already arranged for Karen and Andrew to come and stay with Macy whilst we are away for a couple of weeks in November. We know that after their next stay at our home they are going to live and work in Europe for an extended period and will be seeking opportunities to house sit there. They go with our unfettered endorsement as trustworthy professional and caring house sitters.

I just wanted to report that I am very happy with the house sitter we found, Annie who took on my property in Hobart for 2 weeks in April. Annie cared for my cats well, catered for herself and left the house amazingly clean. She's welcome back anytime!
Maggie

Hi there, I put a listing up last week and have already found a very suitable house sitter. We have met and agreed that she will be our house sitter, thank you! I think you guys do a fantastic job, and thanks for enabling people like me to find reliable house sitters.

Hello we wanted to let you know we got back from our holidays last night. We were so happy with the updates about Lucy and poppy while we were away. . Karen and Andrew took such good care of them and spoilt them! They even sent us updates on the fish and house. When we got home we were so surprised at house sparkling clean the house was it was lovely to come home to. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a house sitter.

House Sitting Tasmania have exceeded our expectations. We were away for 5 weeks and despite last minute changes to our departure, Rachel and Shaun managed the gaps efficiently and with the upmost consideration to our fur babies. Rachel and Shaun are so organised and can coordinate anything to seem effortless and stress free! Andrew and Karen stepped in to cover the first five days and not only kept everyone well fed and happy but gifted us the most incredible photos of our frolicking creatures at the end of it! Rachel and Shaun cared for our home as if it were their own, took on the impossible mission of keeping the grass and plants alive through drought conditions and still found time to give each and every animal their daily dose of love. And we are not talking 1 or 2 animals. They cared for a veritable menagerie of assorted species: 3 rabbits, a cat and a dog. All looked and acted as if they had been the ones who'd been on holiday! The house was immaculate when we returned with absolutely no sign of incident. It was obvious how conscientious and careful Rachel and Shaun are. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping our beloved fur babies so well cared for. We'd have you back anytime and look forward to seeing yours dentures on Facebook. Best of luck in future - you two deserve all the fruits of your labour!

I am now a paid up member now on your site and have already made contact with a young lady who sounds perfect, Gabby, works at Collegiate, so very handy. Thank you!!
Roz

Thank you so much Rachel and Shaun for introducing us to one of your house sitters - Zandra. Not only did she care for our cat with loads of love, leave our house clean and tidy, she did some gardening that we were not expecting. We can highly recommend House Sitting Tasmania for your next house/pet sit.
Michaela

We just joined up for 12 months, our kindest regards and congratulations on your wonderful site!
Suzanne

Wow. What can I say! We were lucky enough to have Rachel and Shaun cover the first few days of our holiday. ..and then Katie and Jacob from House Sitting Tasmania to cover the last few days. Our two fur babies, Spike and Scully, were happy to see us when we got home, but they were so relaxed and happy....we just knew they'd been spoiled rotten. It was almost like they looked at us and thought 'Meh...so you're back? ' There was nothing at all for us to worry about. ..both sitters organised handover and there were no worries there. And when we got home, the house was spotless. Thank you so much House Sitting Tasmania! I can highly recommend you all. You are a credit to yourselves.
Tania

Thank you!!! We came home to such a clean house! Our very old dog Ruby was so pleased she could stay home and was obviously well cared for!! Will definitely need you again and recommend to our friends! Such a great service. Allison

Thankyou Rachel and Shaun we just wanted to let you know how wonderful Andrew and Karen were at minding the house and Tilly while we were away over Easter. They did a brilliant job and the house was tidier when we came back than when we left it! They’d even bought milk and fruit for us, and replaced the jam and peanut butter - which we had no expectation of them doing. Tilly was so relaxed when we arrived home that we knew she’d had a great time and been cared for well - it just confirms our belief that it’s much better to keep her at home when we’re away than to put her in a boarding kennel, we’ll definitely look to House Sitting Tasmania again next time!
Ian and Dani

We just wanted to commend this service to others. We found a lovely couple to house sit for us within 24 hours of joining House Sitting Tasmania. Excellent service and website, thank you so much!
Leah

Thank you once again House Sitting Tasmania for looking after Fergus and our home so beautifully. Fergus was very relaxed when we got home. Thank you!
Sue

We've just had the House Sitting Tasmania team look after our house and animals for a week, and they were fantastic. They did everything asked of them, and more. Kept in touch throughout, so we knew everything was fine back home - very reassuring. And I think our dog and cat now love them more than us! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend House Sitting Tasmania to all my family and friends. Thanks guys! Sorry Peaches stole/ate your shoe.

What a great idea and service!

Hi Rachel and Shaun, we met with Karen and Andrew today and we are very happy and comfortable leaving our dog Macy and our home in their capable hands. We are very impressed with your service and the extent of the details provided to and asked from us to make sure that every one is clear regarding boundaries and expectations. We cannot thank you enough for the service you have provided by putting us in touch with house sitters. There is definitely a big need for your service within the community. We wish you well with your business and we will definitely be regular clients who will be recommending your service. Thank you once again!
Suzanne and Craig

With our family holiday approaching we were stuck wondering what we would do with all our animals while we were away! Luckily Rachel and Shaun from House Sitting Tasmania were able to help us out with a couple perfect for the task! With 16 Chickens, 5 ducks, 2 crazy sheep, 2 guinea pigs, 2 dogs and 5 fish we knew it was going to be a big ask for someone but luckily Karen & Andrew were up for a challenge! We knew from the moment we met them that we had hit the house sitter jackpot and were blown away with how easily they won over all the animals on their first meeting. They were super organised covering all bases with a checklist for us to fill out covering all the important details, making it easy for us to relax. Upon returning home the house was spotless, cleaner than it was when we left and most importantly all the animals were happy and healthy!! For anyone looking for a house or pet sitter we can't recommend it highly enough! A HUGE Thank you from us and all the animals on our mini farm!!"
Gabrielle & Andrew

Fantastic job house sitting for us whilst we were away. Came home to the house and it was cleaner than we left it 😳 great job guys, would highly recommend you!!
Claire

What can I say?? Thank you doesn't seem even nearly enough. Your service has been nothing but amazing from start to finish. Upon our return our house was completely spotless, and I believe cleaner than when we left!! I cannot speak highly enough of your service. Many thanks,
Family Watson

I was so relieved to be able to leave our fur kids in their own home and in our house sitters very capable hands. Especially our 15 yr old dog. I would highly recommend them to house/pet sit. They were very friendly, punctual, clean and tidy, thoughtful and left our house spotless. Worst thing is I think our dogs would quite easily live with them forever and not give us a second thought. The dogs loved them from the first moment. We are now planning our next holiday without the angst and worry about our pets. Thank you!
Glenda

Thank you guys for looking after our pets and house while we were away. Right from he first emails and meeting I knew our pets were going to be well looked after. It was lovely to get a message every now and then saying they were ok and to come back to a beautifully clean house and fresh bread and milk was awesome. I wouldn't hesitate to call on you again or recommend you to friends and family.
