I have used house sitters every year; typically have them come when I am unable to use
the house myself... Thanks for your flexibility. I am very happy with the people
who have stayed in the house. No complaints at all.
I think your services is wonderful! It has been extremely helpful.
GRAZIE!! Stefano, Abruzzo - Italy, July 2013
Had a great time!
Repeat housesitting in London for 6 weeks allowed us the time to see the
sights at our leisure . . . took bus trips in different directions most
days or stayed local as the mood took us . . . and having a sitter
looking after our home in Australia meant a worry free holiday . . .
G and A, Australia to London, two years running.
... I have been successful in again finding
this time from North America ...
... last years' couple were gems and we are still in touch with them.
Best wishes, Mary and Peter, Granada, Spain.

is becoming a global phenomenon. Housesitworld.com is the place to go,
either to advertise for a sitter or to find somewhere to live rent-free
around the globe...
