" We were facing the dilemma of what to do about our Golden Retriever and our cats while on a vacation to France. I looked on the Internet, found the HouseCarers web site, and registered our information. Within a couple of days, we had many responses --some as far away as New Zealand! We got in touch with a couple in their 50s, and they turned out to be some of the nicest people we've ever met. The whole thing worked out very well -- they stayed with us a few days before our trip, they did a great job of watching over our house and our pets, and they even emailed us every day to let us know everything was ok. The amazing thing is that we didn't have to spend a penny to have these great people take care of things!"
" I am writing to say that all went very well with our house sitter. My cats, turtle, house, son were all taken care of splendidly while we were gone. Your service proved to be a lifesaver."
" We were extremely happy with the service we received through HouseCarers - our house sitter was more than reliable, respectful and courteous, he took great care of our home and plants and absolutely wonderful care of our dog and cat. We had never used this kind of service before and were a bit apprehensive, but ended up instead with a service that we will use again in the future. We highly recommend this to anyone thinking it over - our house sitter was excellent!"
" Thanks to your site, we are minding a home, watering a garden and looking after the cutest burmese cat for the next five weeks.Sunshine Coast! Then a home in Cairns from December till mid March.Your site made these initial contacts turn into reality, meeting the needs of both parties.Thanks again .. Farside"
" Thank you so much for your service I appreciate it very much. I met a great family who have become great friends via your service when I received a call to house sit in Santa Monica for one month last year. I have traveled the world and have stayed in hotel, flats, apartment complexes, etc., until I did a house sit and from then on I have gone for a house sit."
" Your service is great, efficient, and easy to use. We have found, I am sure the perfect housesitters for our requirements. Thank you for the site."
" Yes, we are successful. We will be house-sitting for 3 weeks in Oct. in San Francisco. It fits perfectly in our travelplans. We found a very nice contact and looking forward to our first experience. We are going overseas for three month and still look for places in Germany and England. Greetings Karin and Manfred "

" We found a couple to housesit for us! Mary and Larry from Brevard, NC are going to sit for us while we're vacationing in France. Thank you very much. It took less than a week from the time I posted the message and I had at least two other good prospects that I had to turn down. My wife and I are very excited about your service and we will definitely use it again. "
