You asked for a testimonial once the house sit was completed so in one word, 'fantastic'! The sitter was amazing caring for our cats and garden, and the house was cleaner when we got back than when we left. We actually decided to give her a little payment as a thank you. Will be telling friends of your service. Thanks again. Margaret

I would like to thank you very much for providing the facility "House Sitters" for the past three years. I have travelled the whole of the UK looking after a wide variety of pets . My wife and I have taken care of chickens, dogs, cats and horses, lots of whom needed medication and special care whilst their owners were away on holiday. It has been a great pleasure for us and has enabled us to see this beautiful country at the same time as looking after pets. I would like to thank each and every owner for trusting two strangers with their precious pets and lovely homes. We were able to visit several homes on more than one occasion and enjoyed our time immensely. We are taking some time at home this year but will return to HouseSitters as soon as we can. Yours very Sincerely, Martin & Pat

*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.
