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.

Summer time in Switzerland and France!

House Sitter Needed for CountryPaws

Sauverny, Sauverny
Border of Geneva, Switzerland France
View location map
Jul 15,2014    For 19 days

Come experience Summer in France/Switzerland!

Our beautiful three storey, three bedroom house is located in the hills of Sauverny, France, a few minutes away from the city of Geneva, Switzerland and Lac Leman.

Situated on a large (750 sqm) garden property with an absolutely gorgeous view of Mont Blanc and surrounding mountains, our home is a haven for peace and serenity.

We are looking for someone extremely responsible, quiet and respectful to look after our home and our three adorable cats (British Shorthairs) and our 2 year old Boxer puppy, while we are away during the Summer.

Our cats are quiet, loving and shy, and very independent indoor cats. Our puppy is affectionate and energetic, needing someone to give him lots of attention, cuddles and walks.

In this case we are looking for a house sitter who would be either based primarily at the house or be able to take the puppy, Zuka, with them on their adventures. It is also possible to arrange for our dog walker to come and walk Zuka on days you would be away longer than 4 hours.

Other than that, we wish for our house sitter to have a relaxing and enjoyable time in the countryside, and nearby Geneva.

French speaking or knowledge of French would be highly appreciated but absolutely not required (just in case of a pet or house emergency)

House includes: Master bedroom with balcony; two spare bedrooms; two separate toilets, two full bathrooms, with one shower and one with spa bath; open plan kitchen with breakfast bar, living room with fireplace, office nook, separate dining room, basement with laundry facilities, large ground floor patio, outside stone BBQ, garden property (grass), long driveway with gate. Cherry trees and apple tree. Amenities include Wi-fi and satellite TV.
