What Is House Sitting?

Some of you might still be wondering ‘exactly what is house sitting?’

Essentially how it works is when the home owner goes away you move into their home to take care of the day to day running of the house, making sure the home is safe and most importantly for most home owners taking care of their animals.

In general, house sitting is a mutual agreement between you and the home owner and no money changes hands. Both parties receive a huge benefit without any money needing to change hands either way. 

As the house sitter you receive free accommodation in exchange your services, and the home owner saves money on putting their pet into a pet hotel and the peace of mind that their home is safe while they are away.

House Sitting Is The Perfect Solution For Those Who

Sick of cleaning your roommate’s hair out of the sink or washing their dirty pots and pans?

There is a plethora of reasons why you might not be able to have animals of your own (or can not have the animals you want). House sitting is a fantastic way to get your animals interaction in! We have cared for over 60 different pets in 13 countries so far!

For those nomads at heart who love to be on the road or get itchy feet house sitting is the perfect solution. You might get tired of budgeting and being unable to afford constant travel, or maybe you love to travel but need some time now and then to regroup (without an expensive plane ride home). House sitting allows you to cook for yourself (with delicious local ingredients), do your washing, walks a cute pup (a novelty when you travel a lot), have reliable internet and a place to own (no more hostel or hotel check in to deal with) maybe you want a place to put your feet up and relax.

House sitting is popular with retirees as they have plenty of free time and can take advantage of all sorts of sits, It also allows them to make new friends and experience different locations (even if their savings or pensions is small) It a way to make go further and travel to all the places they dreamed of but never had the time or money. It is also good for those who don’t want to live in an RV or camper but still want to live the grey nomad lifestyle.

If you are stuck in a routine and would love a change house sitting is a fantastic way to shake things up a little bit. Do you want to walk an animal in a different part of town or find some new spots you have never seen in your hometown before? Well then house sitting is perfect for you! 

House sittings allows you to travel as much as you want. You stay in expensive cities for longer, (like when we spent a month in Rome) this allows you to explore everything you want to see at your own pace. You can get experience location like a local, you find out the best farmers markets, local cuisines and cafes. No more staying in soulless hotels or expensive Airbnb’s. It’s the perfect way to make your money go further and travelling to places you wanted to visit but didn’t think you could afford!

Most cities are so expensive that you need to limit yourself to a few days. However, what if you could stay longer, a week maybe a month? You could experience city life in bustling London or cosmopolitan Europe or maybe beachside Sydney in Australia? We recently spent a month in Rome, this allowed us to tick off everything on our (huge) bucket list of places to see and things to eat at a very leisurely pace.

Many find a new environment can help with productivity. It can help you focus on the task at hand rather than get distracted by reorganising the kitchen cupboards, nights out with friends or routine tasks such as mowing the lawn. You might be studying, working on a book or business or maybe creating some artistic products.
