How It Works

Testimonials

This site has changed my life, allowing me to explore the country in an affordable way, with short term commitments, so I may see where I might like to settle down after 15 years in Alaska. The homeowners who have endorsed me have become new friends in many ways, and my life is richer as a result of this very interesting experience. Thank you for keeping it going! Evan

Browsing is FREE for everyone

Have a look at all of our sitters and all of our houses 24/7, free of charge. Of course you can't contact anyone until you've become a member, but you can quickly see what's on offer to help you make an informed decision about registering as a sitter, or placing a free house Ad.

House Owners PAY NOTHING

That's right, it will cost you absolutely nothing to become a full member, and place as many ads as you want, for years! You can also browse through the FIND A SITTER list for free, and contact any of the sitters you're interested in... yes, for free.

House Sitters pay $30 per year

Have a quick look through the Sitter Testimonials and you'll quickly realize that membership on this site represents extraordinary value, and the more you use it the better it gets.

You could literally save tens of thousands of dollars over a single year of membership, living rent-free* in wonderful houses around the country.

Once you've paid for your membership, there are no other costs (apart from the everyday costs involved in house sitting*). We do not charge extra for metropolitan zoning like some sites do. We don't charge for special privileges, or for extra features. We don't charge for our friendly support or... yes, that's right, there is nothing more to pay.

So get involved

It's easy to register as a Sitter or to place a free House Ad. You get access to all of the listed members, and they all get to view your Ad or profile.

You could be organising your first "sit" or sitter in a matter of minutes.

*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
