FREE, yes FREE, 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, it’s easy to gain the peace of mind available from having your home looked after by a mature Housesitter member of SeniorSitters. Furthermore, it’s 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.

In short, therefore, SeniorSitters opens up an exciting world of opportunities provided by housesitting, showing how you can broaden your horizons — and save money too!

How do we find these free holidays?

Listings are on our associated website, HouseCarers.com, where you can browse opportunities available in your own city, state, country - or worldwide. However, while you can see what's available, you are only able to contact homeowners when you have paid the HouseCarers low annual membership fee of just $55 - which provides WORLDWIDE access! And, as a SeniorSitters member you get a 10% discount of this already low fee.

Beautiful house in Kenya, alongside a creek and with two lovely/funny dogs looking for loving sitters in June/July

Location:  Creek, Mtwapa Coast, Kenya

Availability: Jun 26,2015

Period: 3 to 6 weeks | Short Medium Term

I live 20 km north of Mombasa at Mtwapa Creek in a five bedroom house with a swimming pool on a one acre plot. The garden is cleaned by a worker who comes five hours each day. I fly to Germany (where I'm from) 2 - 3 times a year.

The property is part of Mtwapa Town, a very lively place, but when you close the Automatic gate you are in an oasis where you can relax whenever you like.

I would like to have a COUPLE with some experience to look after my place. 

First and foremost they must be dog lovers. My dogs are adorable and funny. Matze the Rottweiler is only 15 months old and has a totally relaxed character. He likes to play like Maggie. She is five years old and has a very witty mind. Her favourite game is catching golf balls.

If you are golfers yourselves, we have two beautiful Golf Clubs which are only about 15 - 20 km away. There are two nice restaurants in the neighbourhood: La Marina and The Moorings.

There are also plenty of opportunities for you to go deep sea fishing and diving close by. Fishing trips can depart from my jetty - where you can also fish with hand-lines. There is much more to tell and I will gladly answer all your questions.

Looking forward to hearing from you :)
