For just $55 a
year, membership of SeniorSitters and our associate HouseCarers opens up
a world of
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!

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