How it Works

When travelling, homeowners require trustworthy and dependable individuals to care for their house and pets. In exchange for accommodation, individuals provide expert house sitting services.

A secure home and a happy pet mean peace of mind while you’re away.

“We have used house sitters several times and we'd recommend it to anyone. We love how our home is always so well maintained, and our pets are well cared for.”

Franz and Belinda HOBART, AUSTRALIA

“House sitting is a wonderful way to see the country. We have met some lovely people and gorgeous animals, weeded and watered some amazing gardens and explored lots of new places, both urban and rural.”

Carey Ennis WAIKATO, NEW ZEALAND

“I didn't want to put Jack in a cattery, so I was relaxed knowing that he would be well looked after. My home and garden were also well looked after by my house sitter.”

Connie Mason SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

“House sitting was a wonderful source of short term accommodation when we moved to a new area. We can't recommend it highly enough.”

Susan & Alex DARWIN, AUSTRALIA
