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

HousesittersUK is a great site! It really suits me. I looked carefully at a number of sites before choosing HousesittersUK. This site provides all the features I would want, such as a messaging system between owners and sitters and the ability to upload copies of important photographs and documents. As a newbie to this site, I had a number of queries. Members of staff have replied promptly and comprehensively to all my queries. It is great value for money. Most importantly, I have plenty of bookings. Well done HousesittersUK! Brian

*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.
