What is House Sitting?
House sitting matches people leaving their homes for a period of time, with house sitters who stay in that home while the owners are away.
Often, but not always, there are pets to look after. Sometimes there are gardens to be tended, pools maintained, and mostly no money changes hands.
The homeowner gets the security of their home being lived in, and their pets looked after.
The house sitter gets free accommodation, and the opportunity to stay in a different location. This comes with the responsibilities agreed with the homeowner.
It is a win/win situation.

Go House Sitting
Hi, we are Terry and Maura from New Zealand and have been travelling full time since February 2016.
During this time we have completed 40 house sits in some lovely locations in France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Australia, Germany, New Zealand and the UK.
Go House Sitting was started as a way to help house sitters and homeowners understand all about house sitting and how to get started in this wonderful lifestyle.
Go House Sitting will guide you through the process of what you need to become a house sitter.
We can advise you what to include to create a compelling profile, how to write an introductory email, and give you insights into what makes a great house sitter.
And for homeowners, we can show you how to create a profile to attract an awesome house sitter.
Are you ready to Go House Sitting?
How would you like to stay on the south coast of England for 2 months? What about 6-weeks in Andalucía, Spain? Have you wanted to live like a local in a small village in Italy? Does living in London for a month fit your budget?
As a house sitter all these options can be a reality, in fact, we have experienced all these wonderful situations and many more in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, UK and Australia.
If you enjoy helping others, love a change of scenery and are flexible with the places you live, you may like to go house sitting.
House sitting can offer a house sitter a new way of living, a different way to travel, and a change in lifestyle.
House sitting can offer a homeowner the security for their home, personal carers for their pets and a cheaper option for their pet care.
There are several house sitting websites online. The basics of each are similar, but they all offer something unique.
We have used and researched the following:
