We're heading back to the UK for Christmas and looking for housecarers for our three dogs and cat.

Our house is nestled in a Thai community and opposite a small resort. The resort has a gym, swimming pool and restaurant. You're welcome to use the facilities. It's five minutes drive from the main road near to Fisherman's village. It's a very safe area. Our house has three bedrooms, two doubles and one single. The room you'd be staying in has a private shower/toilet room leading off from it and air con. The living room/kitchen is light and airy and has a TV, DVD player and a big settee. We have a washing machine and everything you'd need in the kitchen. Our photos are from  when we had just moved in, so the house looks a bit different now, hopefully better!

We'll give you a printout of all our house info and local recommendations before we go.

We have a scooter that can be used if you already know how to drive. However, I wouldn't suggest using it unless you're really comfortable with it already, the roads can be a bit crazy! We have a 7-seater GM Zafira automatic car that can be used while we're away. However, it will need to be maintained so that it's kept in a good condition.

Our dogs (Lola, Soi and Pepper) are only small so don't need massively long walks. However, they do need at least one a day. They also love swimming at the beach. We originally got Lola from the local dog shelter, she was a runt and wasn't eating very much because she couldn't fight to feed. She had a few scabby months with ringworm but otherwise was great. We then decided to get another to keep her company. We saw a photo of Pepper from a friend in Bangkok who rescues dogs from the dog meat trade, we instantly knew we wanted her and started sorted it out. However, she contracted distemper from the kennel and had to spend two months there in a clinic before she could be flown to Samui. In the mean time...Lola used to play on the beach with Soi, who was a loveable street dog. He seemed fine until one day I saw him on the beach and he could barely walk and had skin problems. He'd gotten tick fever and lost the use of his back legs. I took him home and the plan was to get him better and give him to our friend. But we fell in love and ended up with three! All three are good dogs, they're fine with our neighbour's children (8 & 10) and brilliant with our newborn daughter.

Our cat is happy as long as she's fed. She likes to go out a lot and gets on fine with the dogs.

We'd ask people who are interested in housesitting to come a day or so early so that we can show you how we do things. We'll assist as much as possible and pick you up/drop you off at the airport.

Our dogs are really comfortable with being left with new people now as we've had quite a lot of housesitters come to stay. They're well behaved (the dogs, that is), apart from the odd bit of cheek, and love being around people. We're happy as long as they're happy.

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!
