Misuse of the Site

Housesitting is a mutual arrangement, directly between House Sitter members on this site and Homeowner members of this site only. The site may not be used to propose House Sitters who are not members of this site.

House sitter members may not use this site for deceptive business practices and your profile must be accurate and true representation.

If you are unable to fulfil your commitment to the Homeowner you must give the homeowner notice and use all possible means to contact the Homeowner. Many Homeowners have already committed to airfares, and dates and cannot be let down. When you make a commitment with the homeowner you should swap all alternate contact methods, so communications can be kept open at all times.

Violations of the conditions of the site can result in suspension of your ad and/ or cancellation of membership without refunds.

House Sitters must take their agreed responsibilites and commitments seriously. This include home, pet and Garden care.

We strongly recommend the supplied housesitting agreement is signed by both sides. A tempate is provided in the members dashboard help area. This can be customised to fit the indidual House Sit.

Homeowner Housesit Postings

Home owners may only post Housesits for your own home. Postings of behalf of other Homeowners are not permitted.

Home owners must give full disclosure of the condition of their home, number of pets, requirements, and any other factors that impact the decision of the House Sitter to commit to the housesit. In other words the House Sitters should not be surprised to find things are not as expected when they arrive. It is strongly recommended that the homeowner supplies photos of the inside of the home and surrounds to the housesitter.

House Sitting Complaints

House sitting complaints (from House Sitter or Home Owner) should be submitted via the Contact form. The complaint should be objective and in point from with evidence.

Housecarers takes all complaints seriously. We receive responses from both sides. Housecarers may terminate the membership of Homeowner or Housesitter where it is evident either side is unreasonable, unfair or negligent.

Housecarers cannot provide legal advise and will not arbitrate on complex cases. In these cases the parties should seek independent legal cases.

About Us

Kelly is a retired Navy Chief and is a Manager for a high-tech company in Portland, OR. If you asked his employees what they would say about him, they would say that he is fair, consistent and sets clear expectations. Kelly is handy around the house and yard, so no worries about any surprises that may come up; he can handle it.

Dawn has been a nurse for 35 years. If you asked her employees what they would say about her, they would say that she is fair, honest, and a great communicator. She supervised Day Surgery at a hospital so she is well organized, can handle emergencies, and is dedicated.

As a couple, we are non-smoking, non-drinking, non-partiers, and love life. I don't want to say that we are homebodies, but we like to stay in a routine of getting up early, do chores (we also make extra money typing from home), and then settle in for the day by later afternoon. We enjoy each other's company, so we don't need to go out in the evenings to go to events or socialize.

Since we are retiring early, we are looking to book up our calendar so that we can have a place to lay our head each night. We love animals and would love having them be part of lives. We also like to run, walk, and go on hikes to stay active and welcome dogs to go with us.


Why We Want to House Sit

We are looking to travel around the United States to go to different areas to house sit and see the sites along the way. This will provide us opportunities to do some camping and hiking while we go from place to place.

We would like the houses that we care for to definitely be a non-smoking house. We also prefer it to have Wi-Fi, queen-size bed, and air conditioning.


Our Experience

We don't have any house sitting experience other than for ourselves.  We have owned our own homes for over 25 years and have had to do the obvious yard and garden maintenance along with interior upkeep and maintenance.

We are very clean people and you will be very pleased coming home to a nice clean house and upon request a pot a homemade chicken and bean soup (I make it weekly because we love it so much).


What Can We Bring to the Assignment?

As stated above, we can bring a lot of life experience. Kelly grew up with dogs, cats, chickens, and horses and then had his own dogs as an adult. I grew up with dogs and then had my own dogs as an adult. I had Cocker Spaniels and Miniature Schnauzers. My Cocker Spaniel had epilepsy, so I had to give him daily medication and when he had grand mal seizures, I had to start an IV and give him medication. One of my miniature schnauzers had cancer, so I had to give him IV fluids daily.

On a final note, if Kelly can run a manufacturing plant and I can run a hospital unit, we can take care of your house, pets, and yard.

Thank you for reading this,

Kelly and Dawn
