We had a wonderful first experience. We went on holiday for two weeks and left our home and 2 dogs in the care of Amy. She sent us daily updates and we returned to a clean house and two happy pups. If you do your due diligence this is a win-win for everyone. Mark F, Portland
What exactly is a housesitter? A housesitter is an individual hired by a homeowner to maintain the home while the homeowner is away. A housesitter may be compensated by an agreed upon pay or the ability to live rent free in the home while the owner is not there. In exchange, house sitters assume general responsibilities involved in the maintenance of the home such as taking care of pets, watering plants, taking out garbage, checking mail, and deterring intruders. Put simply, a housesitter will make sure everything runs smoothly just as if the homeowner were there.
