accommodation nationwide or worldwide
it's up to you.
How does it
work and what's the catch?
How it Works
Housesitting couldn't be simpler: A
housesitter cares for the owner's house and pets, if any, while the owner is
absent for whatever reason. This means the owner enjoys the peace of mind of
knowing that the house is being lived in (itself the most effective form of
security) and any pets cared for.
In return for accepting these responsibilities, the
sitter enjoys free accommodation for the duration of the owner's absence, or
whatever other period is agreed to. This may be as brief as a few days, or
several months. Even housesits in excess of a year are not unknown.
What's the Catch?
There's none really. From
the Owner's viewpoint, its easy to gain the peace of mind available
from having your home looked after by a mature Housesitter member of
SeniorSitters. Furthermore, its free!
From the housesitter's viewpoint it's a wonderful opportunity to see new
places and make new friends, and it's all free!
All the sitter need pay for is
food, local transport and getting to and from the housesit.
(Occasionally the owner will require payment for local utilities, phone,
etc, although, in our experience this is exceptional in the case of more
mature sitters, such as SeniorSitters members.
SeniorSitters opens up
an exciting world of opportunities provided by housesitting, showing how
you can broaden your horizons and save money too!
