I have secured a house sitter via your system for the time I will be away next summer and fall. I emailed this person and exchanged information, then later we talked on the phone. Finally we set up a meeting in Florida when I was visiting there for the holidays. We had lunch together, discussed details, and this person has made a commitment to stay in my house and care for my dogs while I am in Australia. Your website serves an important need! Beverly
You were super helpful. We wound up having three who sounded good and submitted references, and we chose one. That will be for this summer. We have also used your contract template, for which I thank you. Overall, it's a wonderful service. Jo
Hi Housesitters America! We would like to say a big thanks to your house sitting company. It only took us a few days to find a couple who were suitable and available for our Washington home. The couple (we were told we couldn't name their names here??) looked after our home and cat perfectly. We got home after 9 weeks to find the house exactly how we left it. They even left flowers and chocolates for us for our return - how's that!! We have told everyone about these sitters and your service. We will definitely use you again. Until next time, Col & Ann
I interviewed several house sitters from your website to house-sit my large, art-filled, urban apartment in the Bay Area, as well as to take care of a beloved elderly cat, while I was away, out of the country, for an entire month. During our several initial emails one man struck me as exceptionally thoughtful, appropriate and responsive. Since I was looking for a grownup to care for my home worry-free, I intuitively realized that he fit the bill. He more than lived up to that initial impression. On arrival, he welcomed my thorough briefing on my home and my cat's special needs, The quality of his attention and of his questions relieved me of any further anxiety about my departure. On his own initiative he very kindly emailed me each week, to let me know that all was well, including some gently humorous updates on my cat's antics and health. He also managed two unexpected maintenance issues effectively and with no fuss. When I returned home the cat was happy and my home beautifully maintained. He was thoughtful, considerate and a gentlemanly house-sitter. Berkeley F
We recently came back from five weeks in Australia and feel fortunate to have found the perfect house sitter through your site. She not only took wonderful care of our home and precious cat, but she clearly loved and appreciated them as if they were her own. My thanks goes to House Sitters America for providing the connection. And to the sitter, who truly gave us a secure, comfortable, no worries feeling, even though we were so far, far away. Terry A
I found someone through House Sitters America, and they did a great job! I was on vacation 8 hrs away for a week. My house was very well cared for, the pool was tended to, the mail and the newspaper were brought in, and the plants were watered-inside and out!! I will definately use this service again!! Thanks Again, Elizabeth in New Jersey Elizabeth M
We did find a house sitter through your site. Rachael was amazing--very professional and she took care of our dogs and our home for a month, as though they were her own. We had an unexpected event happen while we were gone and after contacting us to let us know that our older dog was very ill, Rachael had to have her put to sleep. Not many people can do this, let alone do it with grace. Rachael went above and beyond the call of duty. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. Regards, Margaret S
I have used House Sitters America on three occasions. I placed an ad for a housesitter and also scanned all the registered house sitters. We have been delighted and positively satisfied with the house sitters we have gotten. House Sitters America website is very easy to use and I like that I can activate/deactivate my ad as I need to. I usually need a house sitter about twice a year. You provide a wonderful service that only a few years ago would be impossible. Keep up the good work. Margaret H
Thanks for the help. I'm going to use a housesitter I found on your website. She hasn't sat for us yet, but we have emailed and also spoken on the phone and I feel quite comfortable having her sit for us. We have a dog and two cats. The housesit isn't until August so I will let you know more afterwards. I like the website. Keep up the good work. Jude & Kevin

*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.
