Our History and Vision

Providing Peace of mind that your house is occupied whilst you're away

HouseCarers was launched in recognition of the need to provide a secure environment where homeowners can locate a reliable house sitter and sitters can achieve their financial and housing objectives.  We have researched the standard practice of house sitting and created acceptable guidelines to help our members make informed decisions.

We use the power of the Internet to connect our members worldwide. We are committed to membership satisfaction and use our members` suggestions to continually improve the effectiveness of our site.
