Hi, just want to say how impressed I am with your site and the house sitters I have communicated with thus far. They have been so kind and friendly, and we have found someone to cover our dates. I had neighbours who were happy to come over for the animals, but I really like the idea of sharing my home with people and I know the animals will like having someone resident. Thanks again, Donna

Just a quick message to say what a great site you have. I only registered as a sitter a few weeks ago and within two days had two 'sits' organised. In fact I am on one now in Shoreham and having a wonderful time. Whilst on my trip here I have had two more approaches for house/pet sits. I looked at several websites but yours was by far the best. It's opened up a whole new world to me. Thanks. Anne B

*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
