How it works for Home Owners

Find a House Sitter Join our Home Owners for FREE

  1. Sign up for FREE and complete a short questionnaire to create your home owner ad.
  2. Browse our house sitters list and contact any whose profiles appeals to you and/or wait to be contacted by sitters who are available for your location and dates.
  3. Review your applicants and choose your sitter.

Although you are free to spend time searching through our sitters lists and contacting any that you feel might be suitable, it isn't really necessary because our sitters are notified when you submit your ad. Usually within hours those that are available for your location and dates will be contacting you to see if they may be suitable for the position.

Once you have submitted your ad you will receive an email with initial instructions and, around 24 hours later, a follow up email with house sitting best practice information including a link to download our free "Home Owners guide to House Sitting" in pdf format.

Benefits for Home Owners

  • Access capable, trustworthy house sitters

    House sitters are carefully screened and appointed by you and for many this is a regular activity, so they're motivated to do the best they can with an eye to future house sitting assignments, either for you or someone you recommend them to. This means you can count on a pool of motivated house sitters who are trustworthy and reliable.

  • Your pets stay comfortable in their own home

    Your pets will be happier and much more comfortable in their own home instead of a strange kennel. They can sleep and play in accustomed places with their own toys and familiar sights and smells. House sitters provide companionship and exercise by playing with them and walking them while you are away.

  • You can relax knowing all is well at home

    You have peace of mind and can relax and enjoy your holiday comfortable in the knowledge your pets are being well cared for and have regular close human contact. Your house sitter can water your plants, bring in the mail, keep the garden tidy and give your home a lived in look, providing security for your property and possessions by just being there.

  • You will save on pet boarding costs

    The expense of boarding out your pets when you are away can be prohibitive. With a house sitter your pets stay in the comfort of their own home at no cost to you.

What Home Owners are saying…

testimonial by Wendy & Tony

“ Good Morning. Just wanted to give you a belated thank you for providing us with house sitters, Christine and Neil.  They house sat for us for over a month at the end of February whilst we were in South Africa . Unfortunately while we were away our precious dog Tickey (age 15) became very ill and in the end the vet could not save him.  We could not have looked after Tickey any better than Christine and Neil did – they went beyond the call of duty in helping him through his last few days with love and compassion.  We know this from the emails and telephone calls that past between us. When we arrived home Christine and Neil met us at the station and had cheese and wine waiting for us when we finally got back to our apartment after nearly 30 hours of travel.  On top of that Christine had a cooked casserole which was waiting for us in the fridge for the following day. We were not lucky, we were blessed, that Christine and Neil came into our lives, and plan to keep in touch with them as friends.
