You're a treasure, Kylie!

Location Helensburgh NSW Australia


Sit Dates Jan-13-23 - Feb-1-23

I'm so grateful for Kylie's care of my home and my cat. She very quickly won her way into Tia's heart and it was obvious from the pictures she sent that my little fur baby was content and feeling safe. Kylie was very kind to her in managing some of the difficult weather days, with getting her outside when it was safe and managing her inside when it wasn't. My home was respectfully treated and was beautifully clean and tidy when I returned. While I was away I was able to feel perfectly content that my home and cat were safe and secure.  Thanks so much, Kylie!

Lovable Zia and Wonderful Hosts

Location San Francisco California United States


Sit Dates Nov-24-22 - Jan-26-23

Zia's parents were great.  Their place was clean, organized and they made it very welcoming for us.  A nicely printed guide and all the amenities you would need.  The City was also great!  Everything within walking distance ... restaurants, stores, parks, city pool and a gym next door.  We bonded quickly with Zia who loves to play, being brushed and has quite the personality.  We would gladly sit for Zia again.  There's always more to discover in the Mission District.

Jay and Natalie are a-mazing!!!

Location San Francisco California United States


Sit Dates Nov-24-22 - Jan-26-23

I must admit, I had some hesitation having strangers stay in our home. Yet, given the length and timing of our trip, our regular folks were not abile to stay with our cat Zia, so given a positive recommendation from a friend of a friend, we connected with Housecarers and found Jay and Natalie. What a gift they were! They took great care of our condo (frankly, they left it in better condition than when we left, having taken care of some maintenance tasks we hadn't gotten to). They checked in while we were gone and set pics of Zia--I suspect she might wish they were back, since they were so good to her! We felt so confident that everything was being handled well in our absence. Jay and Natalie were so thoughtful, offering to pick us up from the airport, reaching out to see if they could purchase any staples for us to have when we got home, and leaving sweet little crocheted gifts around our condo that made us smile when we stumbled upon them. 10/10 recommend without any hesitation whatsoever!!

Snuggles with Magó

Location Madrid Spain


Sit Dates Oct-26-22 - Nov-11-22

I stayed at Guille's and Dani's place for a bit over two weeks during the fall of 2022, taking care of their love bug, Magó and it was a treat.  First of all, they live near this gorgeous park, called Parque Quinta de la Fuente del Berro, which is just gorgeous.  I used to take Magó there once a day for a long walk and there were lots of gorgeous flowers and fountains etc.  Lots of people take their dogs there and it is a great place to meet the locals. Through the park is also how you get to central Madrid, which is only like a 20-30 minute walk from Guille's and Dani's place.  Guille's and Dani's place is very nice.  It is on the top floor so it is very quiet (good for sleeping and also for working at home) and Dani has created this beautiful terrace with lots of pretty plants.  After a long day, I used to sit on the terrace with a glass of wine and, of course Magó.  Magó (or as I like to call her "bebé) is just as sweet as can be.  She likes to play and she likes to go for her walks, but she is also wiling to chill with you on the couch and bing watch tv.  She is a sweetheart.

I really enjoyed house and pet sitting here! Besides the awesome Boulder location, close to hiking trails and perfect for walking and exercise, Ozzy is an amazing dog with a gentle loving demeanor.  He's truly appreciative of attention and quite happy to be a companion.  Easy to take care of and fun!

Gorgeous Views of the Columbia River + One Gorgeous Poodle

Location Portland Oregon United States


Sit Dates Sep-19-21 - Nov-10-21

I had the greatest time taking care of Bob and Sandy’s dog Cooper in the fall of 2021. Bob and Sandy live in this gorgeous condo on the Columbia River in Portland, Oregon (not far from Vancouver Washington), and I felt privileged to stay there.  You can see the most gorgeous sunrises and sunsets from their decks (yes, they have more than one) and they have a fireplace on the first floor that is so cozy to snuggle by with Cooper (their poodle—who is the star of the house).

Cooper, well he is just a joy.  And, he is drop-dead gorgeous (if you care for him, people will stop you to tell you this).  He is on the older side, so he sleeps a lot.  In fact, occasionally, he would head to bed before me or sleep in, but he also enjoys a good game of tug or galloping outside. Bob and Sandy are also just wonderful—I stayed with them for a day when they returned and we had engaging, warm conversations and we have become great friends. They are both well-traveled, caring, and intellectually curious individuals. In sum, I heartily recommend taking care of Cooper IF you are a wonderful person worthy enough of Bob, Sandy, and Cooper.

Wonderful people

Location Vancouver British Columbia Canada


Sit Dates Dec-21-22 - Jan-1-23

Karissa and Jamie looked after our home and 2 cats over the Christmas holiday. They were so flexible with dates and especially when we weren’t sure if our flights to go home for Christmas would be cancelled, they offered to find another place to stay (which wasn’t necessary but we did appreciate them offering). Karissa was quick to respond to texts and kept us informed. It was nice to have a video interview with them in advance of the sit to show them around.

They kept our house tidy and left it cleaner than how we left it. They fed and cared for our two cats. They were very responsible, trustworthy, respectful, reliable, genuine, and professional and we would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a house sitter.

Great, Laid-back Stay in Englewood, CO

Location Englewood Colorado United States


Sit Dates Nov-24-22 - Jan-25-23

Jonathan and Linda were great hosts with a wonderful place in Englewood, CO. They were kind, left us with clear instructions for the plants and house upkeep and were easy to contact when we had questions.

Their home is in a nice neighborhood of Englewood (which is a suburb of Denver). It would be helpful to have a vehicle if you stay here but we were able to get by with a mix of walking, public transportation (conveniently located nearby) and Uber.

If we were looking to stay in the area again, we'd be willing to do another sit for them!

Recommended if you have a vehicle and want to be close to Denver but not right in the middle of the city and all that comes with it.

Great stay in Bangkok

Location Bangkok Thailand


Sit Dates Dec-22-22 - Jan-7-23

Kay and her family welcomed me in their spacious Thailand house a day before they had to leave and were very accommodating as I was jet-lagged by 13 hours. They are truly wonderful & easy going individuals and we had a great time getting to know each other and discussing house/pet sitting details during dinner.

Their house is located in a nice neighborhood of Chatuchak on a quite Soi (side street). The house has just about all of the needed amenities, including AC! A fully stocked good size supermarket with food court is within a 5 minute walk, which came in extremely handy during my stay. Easy to use & safe ATMs for money exchange were also available in the same location. An excellent 4 star Thai restaurant is within 10 minute walk as well. Public transport is also near-by (within 10-15 minute walk), but for the most part, I used GRAB (similar to UBER) as I found it to be the most convenient and fairly inexpensive way to move around Bangkok (which is a very large, sprawling city).

Their two cats (Coco and Pepinette) were extremely easy and fun to take care of – they have a great dynamic together, while having two distinctive personalities. Overall, a wonderful stay, great communication and an excellent hub for exploring the wonders of Bangkok.

And I’ve made new friends on the other side of the planet - priceless!

I cannot say enough superlative things about Jinny to adequately convey what a wonderful housesitter Jinny is...but I will try.

Tom and I are fortunate enough to travel extensively and have luckily found some great house sitters on this site.  But Jinny stands out as the best. She is truly a gift.

Your house, plants, and pets will be taken care of with love, care, and devotion.  She will leave your house immaculate and will have communicated with you to ensure you are up to date on everything. 

It's like having a wonderful, dear, close relative in your home.  

I am not the only one that feels this way, therefore she is very popular and has a busy schedule - but if you can book her, she will become your favorite too!

Wonderful housesitter experience

Location Bangkok Thailand


Sit Dates Dec-22-22 - Jan-7-23

Cadillac stayed in our old Thai house in Bangkok for 2.5 weeks in December 2022. It was our first time to engage with cat sitter like this and honestly we did not know what to expect. Cadillac made everything so easy. Communication was clear and prompt despite a 13 hour time difference. Expectation was set clearly before his arrival. He is very well organized, detail minded and thorough, and gave us more than enough confidence that our two cat queens would be under his great care

When we were traveling, communication remained excellent with regular updates as per our preference. The house was returned neat and tidy, and even better than before

I cannot say enough nice words for the whole experience. Cadillac was like an angel sent so my cat queens can continue to stay in our house instead of a tiny room in a cat hotel

We highly recommend Cadillac and warmly welcome him and his family again in future if they consider visiting Bangkok again

Such a delightful welcoming home and community. We felt surrounded by beauty and love in this picturesque setting. Great place to relax and sip coffee while watching the golfers in the morning.

We loved the community center, I loved going for a run in the near by community, we also hiked in the forrest, and made an easy trip into D.C. We have styed twice and cannot wait to go again, thank you!

Alert, competent sitter

Location Cuenca Ecuador


Sit Dates Dec-5-22 - Jan-6-23

Tomas came to us the night before we left on our month long journey. I found it was a bit challenging to go over everything with him before we left at 5 a.m., but he coped well with the challenges he faced.  Water leaked under the sink - he mopped it up not once but twice before the repairman could arrive. He also took pictures to show the repairman what was leaking and enabled a very rapid replacement of the offending plumbing.  He contacted me regularly and ket me updated on the cats - Phantom was doing her thing of "this is my house and I don't care how much grass or food you try to give me, I'm not gonna eat it".  She was in no danger, but he thought I should know. He kept track of garbage days and dumped all garbage the day before we returned. Constant contact and regular updates are important when one is thousands of miles away and he took care of that. Happy to hear he enjoyed Cuenca and visiting around Ecuador. To make sure he would be able to cover all his responsibilites and arrive on time, he asked if a friend could accompany him since he often travels alone.  That was ok.

This house is in a very quiet and safe part of town. Cuenca is a very interesting town in many ways, whether you are sightseeing or considering retiring there. Karen kept in very quick contact with me, helped resolve any problems quickly, and was super helpful with suggestions for things to do and how to get around town. The three cats, though all fairly different, were a pleasure to take care of. I totally enjoyed my time there.

 We were so happy to have been able to house-sit for Georgette in her beautiful home on Chesapeake Bay in Eastern  Maryland. Sascha, the cat,  was easy to care for and kept us entertained with her antics.

No stone was left unturned in making us feel comfortable and well prepared at this house-sit. Thanks again for everything!

Living in the French countryside.

Location Mirepoix Occitanie France


Sit Dates Feb-22-22 - Jan-9-23

This is a truly wonderful home to housesit. In the middle of nature, on top of a hill. The daily company consists of birds and game. Beautiful view of the Pyrenees. Lots of silence and tranquility. Only every now and then a tractor drives by on the road 500 meters away. The site is secluded and well maintained. We have enjoyed walking, cycling and running in the hilly area. The site is 400 meters above sea level. There are plenty of shopping options within half an hour's drive.

The apartment is modern and comfortable, completely independent and fully furnished. Good wifi and 4G.

There is room in a shed for the storage of our own car and caravan. . The barns are clearly arranged and the tools and other necessities are stored in a structured manner.

We found the garden work to do well. You can indulge yourself in taking care of the many different plants and trees. Thanks to the well-functioning machines, mowing grass is no problem. We used a strimmer for the edges and steep sides. In spring and summer, the plants need water, which is partly provided with an irrigation system and partly with a water hose and watering can.

The owners are very friendly people. Contact with them was smooth, fast and accurate. They are helpful, and clear in communication.

Whatsapp and email are frequently used and there is a quick and adequate response.

Great host! Perfect location!!

Location Budoni Sardinia Italy


Sit Dates Oct-28-22 - Jan-16-23

I spent 3 months in Giancarlo’s beautiful house. From the house, you have an amazing view on mountains, sea,sunrise and sunset !! Honestly, the perfect location!!
It is a quiet area during winter , perfect set-up for a laidback vacation...

Porto Ottiolu is a beautiful quiet place with a nice port but you will need to go to villages around to find everything you need, Budoni is at 10 minutes with a bicycle and I founded there everything I needed for my stay. 
The host, Giancarlo, made everything possible to make my stay memorable. He wasn't intrusive and was  always willing to help me when needed. Communications were very easy.

Finally, the 2 cats are adorable and need very minimal attention...but they're always happy to be with you and have affection.

One of my best housesit ever!! Only positives stuffs to say about Casalaroccia!!

From the outset they were friendly, interested and interesting, with good English and some French, just as well, as sadly we do not speak Dutch.

We kept in regular contact and if a small problem arose they dealt with it quickly and efficiently as they evidently would have done in their own home. They went 'above and beyond' and have left their mark with many creative additions , including an owl box and a bird table which our feathered friends love.

Throughout their sit they were totally reliable and we were able to relax, knowing that when we were not there our property was in safe hands. We will really miss them and would welcome them back anytime!

Ideal housitter

Location Budoni Sardinia Italy


Sit Dates Oct-29-22 - Jan-16-23

Pierre stayed in our house in Sardinia for about 3 month, and I can say that he was just the ideal housitter!

He inspired a sense of trust since the beginning (or even earlier, i.e. during our prelimnary correspondence), up to the extent that I went so far as to propose that he could borrow my car (which he harldy did by the way). 

He was extremely discreet, but we also had the chance to spend some time together with him when I was there: all members of my family enjoyed his company vey much.

He did a great deal of things in the house, as he is extremely skilled in all activities related to the maintenance and construction of a house.

To be honest, I wouldn't hesitate a second to strongly recommend him as a housesitter.

Martha stayed in my house for almost 3 weeks and I couldn't be happier with the great care she had with my dog Mago and my plants, all of them survived.

She was always communicative about what was going on at the house (not much because she took such great care of it) and my dog was so happy with her, that for me, that was the most important thing.

We are still in contact and hope to see her again soon ;)
