Robert & Marja were exceptional housitters.

Location Mirepoix Occitanie France


Sit Dates Feb-20-22 - Jan-8-23

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.

Amazing experience with a true dog lover!

Location Madrid Spain


Sit Dates Oct-27-22 - Nov-13-22

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 ;)

Mike and Martha were wonderful sitters.  Jasper, our kitty was pleased. They took great care and sent several pictures of how Jasper was doing.  They fed the backyard birds as well, and Martha made a list of all the types of birds she spotted.

I would be happy to recommend Mike and Martha anytime and we hope to have them sit again for us. They are very nice people as well and have already become friends.

Fantastic housesit for a beautiful family

Location Newcastle NSW Australia


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

I spent 1 month looking after 2 gorgeous cats (Dexter and Dobby) for Nicole and her family on the beautiful Lake Macquarie.

Nicole and her family made me feel welcome right from the start, including hosting a BBQ when I collected keys. 

Meeting up a couple of times before the housesit meant that it was seamless for me to look after the kitties and the house, as all information was provided and I was able to ask any clarifying questions.

I would look after Nicole and her family's pets and house again in a heartbeat.

Responsible, tidy and very kind with our animals!

Location Los Alamos New Mexico United States


Sit Dates Dec-20-22 - Dec-27-22

We hit the jackpot with Bruce caring for out pets and home for a week. He came out in advance to get to know our household and routine, and took copious notes, had great questions and walked the dogs during his visit. We really enjoyed getting to know Bruce prior to his stay and we felt absolutely confident in trusting him.

Bruce kept us updated and went on many walks with our 3 dogs. Our chicken waterer broke before we left and Bruce changed water daily even though it was icing over and difficult. He watered our plants better than I do, and even stacked wood!

We came home to happy, content animals and a very clean home, all ready for us to settle back in. Anyone who gets Bruce is going to be blessed!

Friendly hosts, enjoyable animals in Los Alamos Housesit

Location Los Alamos New Mexico United States


Sit Dates Dec-20-22 - Dec-27-22

Angel and Russell have a spacious house in a scenic part of Los Alamos – great views out the bedroom porch, easy walking distance to some canyon hikes… 20 minute walk (3 minute drive) to downtown, Nature Center and Aquatic center (free EV charging at the Nature Center and at another spot downtown near grocery stores).

Quiet street, good internet, great sleeping arrangements, kind and friendly hosts. Well supplied kitchen and appliances.

If you enjoy friendly animals, this is a great housesit.

There are three small dogs which need to be walked (I walked them together quite easily) about three times a day. I would walk them a few minutes down the street in either direction to wooded scenic areas. They are happy to travel by car and love being petted – they often will sit next to you or on your lap when you are on the couch.

There are 10 hens which lay eggs at times, are very comfortable being touched or held – they need to have a door to the coop opened and closed each day when sun comes up and down. They like kitchen scraps and treats, and come running towards you when you approach them

I was able to spend some time in Santa Fe one of the days, mostly stayed close by and enjoyed the local attractions, of which there are many in town.

sweet cats and a lovely home and host

Location BOLZANO Trentino Alto Adige Italy


Sit Dates Dec-21-22 - Jan-2-23

My son and I cared for Roberta's sister's cats in her home in Bolzano over the Christmas Holidays.  The cats were sweet and playful (and one a bit shy), and very easy to care for given that all their food and litter had been provided.  Roberta and her sister were excellent communicators and the apartment was modern, warm, comfortable and clean, with great internet.  It was a great location to walk to the town square and different restaurants daily.  We arrived via train and left via bus and so no car was needed.

Amy and Cliff are a great housesitting team!

Location Tucson Arizona United States


Sit Dates Dec-28-22 - Jan-4-23

Amy and Cliff looked after my house as well as my kitty, Sami, over the New Year's holiday.  It was their first experience housesitting and they handled it like pros.  They arrived promptly at the agreed upon time, were friendly, outgoing and excited to learn what was expected.  They kept in touch with me via texting as I requested, updating me on Sami and sending pictures.  When I arrived back home the house was in perfect condition.  Sami was napping in one of her hiding places, and when she came out to the living room and saw me she stopped in her tracks, looked around for Amy and Cliff, then decided that she would come over to me for a head scratch.  

I highly recommend Amy and Cliff.  Your house and/or pet will be in good hands with them!

Location Vancouver British Columbia Canada


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

We recommend housesitting here! Leo and JR are the best. Their care is simple and straightforward and getting to know them is really rewarding.

Lori and Dan are excellent communicators.

The house itself is perfect. We had our own room with a queen bed and an empty wardrobe for our things, there was a deep soaker tub in the bathroom, and the kitchen had all the tools we needed. We also really enjoyed using the real wood fireplace!

The location was also perfect - grocery stores, coffee shops, and restaurants were all a 5-20 min walk away. Transit was steps away, and the highway was a short drive away. Lots of trees and unique homes in this neighbourhood. Very Vancouver, in the best way.

Eternally grateful for our stay here.

We can't recommend Kylie highly enough. 
We met twice before we went on our travels and warmed to Kylie immediately. 
Whilst we were away Kylie sent us occasional updates and photos of our cats which were appreciated. When we returned home, Kylie was waiting to meet us. Our home and pets couldn't have been in better hands. 
If she's available we will definitely ask Kylie to house and pet sit next time we are away.

I enjoyed their company and would definitely dogsit here again!

Great sit for great cats

Location Copenhagen inner city Denmark


Sit Dates Dec-15-22 - Jan-1-23

My daughter and I had the pleasure of sitting for Sanne and Antonio's lovely, cuddly cats Lily and Georgia for 2 weeks over XMas and New Years this year. It is impossible not to fall in love with these fur babies, which is exactly what we did.
The apartment is cosy and comfortable and despite being close to railroad tracks is very quiet thanks to the superb soundproof Danish windows. We would have preferred it to be on a lower floor (no elevator, 3.5 flights of stairs) but on the other hand, we had a front row view of fireworks that were set off almost every other evening in the ball park behind the building! It was marvelous and a great preface for the unbelievable firework extravaganza that took place on New Years Eve downtown.
Communication with S&A before and during the sit was excellent, the cats are so easy that written instructions weren't even needed. We very much enjoyed the few hours we spent with them and their two adorable daughters upon their return.
I would definitely return to Copenhagen and to Sanne and Antonio's cats and apartment, but maybe in the spring or summer next time :)

This was my first experience using house carers, and getting to be connected with a homeowner. I can't say enough how wonderful this opportunity had been.  Georgia and Janson are fantastic people. They went above and beyond to make sure I am happy and comfortable. Danni (the dog) is the sweetest dog you can imagine. She is easy to take care of, be aware you will fall in love with her, so saying goodbye was sad. The location was perfect. The neighborhood is safe and beautiful.

Location Denver Colorado United States


Sit Dates Dec-16-22 - Jan-1-23

NomadicGuru stayed at our home with our epileptic Labrador over the winter holidays. She was a wonderful house and pet sitter. She is so kind and conscientious. She was clean, unobtrusive, and extremely helpful. On top of all that, she is also an incredibly interesting person. We had some wonderful conversations the few hours we were all in the house together. My children loved her.

There was an extreme cold snap while we were away, and she helped us ensure nothing would freeze or get damaged. She shoveled when it snowed, without us asking. 

She also handled our special needs dog so well. It's not easy to give the dog medication. She persevered. Asked questions. Sent updates. But never too much. And she went above and beyond to bond with our dog and show the dog a lot of love and affection while we were away.

She collected packages for us, facilitated house cleaning, and took care of various odds and ends that came up while we were away. She was always so cheerful and a joy to work with.

Location Sonoita Arizona United States

Bennie worked out terrifically for me because she's entirely independent and didn't need me to check-in with her while I was away. She gave me the confidence that "no news is good news" and I didn't spend a moment of my holiday away wondering or worrying about what was happening in my absence from home. When you LOVE your home and your beloved pet(s) its a gift to not be worrying about them while you're away.  Bennie gave me the confidence that I didn't need to give a second thought to what was happening at home while I was on holiday.  That's a gift.

This was my second time sitting with Lily for Mike and Jo.  Lily is certainly on my short list of favorite dogs to stay with.... she is super calm, gentle, affectionate and wonderfully easy to care for.  And I can't say enough about Mike and Jo... 2 of the most kind and bighearted people I've ever met... I always have sole use of a car and am always invited to stay extra days to accommodate flights.  They have a lovely home in the heart of Missoula... walking distance to almost everything I needed.  Needless to say, I would not hesitate to return for another stay!

Reliable Housesitter

Location Marinette Wisconsin United States


Sit Dates Nov-7-22 - Dec-12-22

Kathleen is a fantastic house sitter. We had her watch our home and cats for 5 weeks. She came a day before we left so we could show her the routine and take her around our small town. She is a delight, very friendly and easy to talk to.
She took excellent care of everything and kept us informed with emails and photos. One of our cats is normally very skittish with strangers and it was great that she cozied up with Kathleen after a day or two.  She took great care of my plants and they looked better when I came home!
We recommend Kathleen highly and we hope to see her again in the future.

Bruce is one of the most consciencious and quiet, kind housesitters we have had. This was our initial experience with him, and he was so wonderful we had him come back twice again! He is so good with our dear old Labrador Guido, that when we returned Guido wasnt sure who he wanted to go with! He actually looked around for him for a day after he left! I can't say enough about how clean careful and attentive he was for all three of our housesits. At each of our returns to our home, he not only left the house spotless, but also wrote a full report about all the responsibilites and issues with our home and bird feeders, checking mousetraps and shoveling our walkways. He truly goes above and beyond... We are only sad that he may not be available again for the spring. Thank you so much Bruce!

Great sit, 100% recommended

Location Phoenix Oregon United States


Sit Dates Jul-17-22 - Oct-10-22

We were privileged to house sit for Rosie and Joanna for 3 months during the summer. Their home is comfortable and in a great central location for any recreation and entertainment you could want – from hiking and fishing to music festivals and more.

Suki the cat is awesome! He has quite a personality and we quickly warmed up to each other. Although Suki did prefer Curt’s lap for his morning naps.

Rosie and Joanna are warm and welcoming, and communication was easy. They were so accommodating, they even planted vegetables so that we could have home grown fresh produce during our stay. They were helpful and supportive when we needed to take Suki to the vet for a leg injury (he is OK now), and the fridge went out. They were so concerned about us. We worked together during both issues, and it all worked out nicely.

If you get a chance to sit for them, take it. We highly recommend it.
