Home and Labrador owner & UK expats, from Beachside, Bang Sare Chon Buri Thailand finds House & Dog Sitters have restored their faith in the kindness of human beings.

Can we say a big 'thank you' to all the people that answered our advert at very short notice.

We've had quite a stressful year and the kindness of people that house-sit has restored our faith in the kindness of human beings.

I'm just off to the UK for my yearly visit to our lovely family and friends and hope that our sitters will find the place to their liking.

Many thanks to and their amazing band of 'sitters'. Keep up the good work! you're doing an amazing job! and a big 'Thank You' to all the people that replied.

Recently widowed House Sitter, maddie40, finds House Sitting a great way to catch up with my friends without the hassle of staying with them

I have found your site very helpful and have just completed a house sit very successfully for 6 weeks in Napier New Zealand ...thank you ...I am now looking for my next house sit ...

Great news about the housesit. It is always good to hear stories like yours. Where are you from? and what are your main reasons for housesitting?

I have my own house just outside of Dunedin new Zealand, and my reasons for house sitting was I list my partner in an accident and then my small dog died , so I felt without any ties, now was the time to do house sitting, and its a great way to catch up with my friends without the hassle of staying with them, so I pick places where I know people and then have a holiday without the accommodation expense. I think I will work my way to an overseas house sit away from new Zealand and Australia.......Cheers Jenni

English Expats visit UK from their Lourmarin French Village Home and return to Doggy well and happy -- and a cooked dinner.

Megan & Marty (Happy2B1) looked after our house and dog in France for a week while we visited the UK. They were a delightful, interesting couple and made a great job of their assignment with us - the garden was tended, the house immaculate, and the dog well and happy - they even cooked dinner for us the night we returned. Anyone booking them for a similar assignment will be lucky!!
What a treat for dog-lovers ... large house, with swimming pool, on a hill 7/8 minutes walk from the village of Lourmarin, which is designated as one of the most beautiful villages in France, with a strong cafe society and many shops and galleries. Lourmarin is in the Luberon, and we are surrounded by hills and woods, with spectacular views. It is also convenient for a visit to Apt, Isle- sur-le-Sorgue, and Aix-en-Provence. The weekly market is on Friday... View ad for dog-sitter Lourmarin France

Wanderbird takes a break from Queen Charlotte Islands to look after your home and pets for the opportunity to explore

I wanted to let you know that it has been a pleasure being a part of Housecarers. I live on a small island (Queen Charlotte Islands) about 100 kms of the northwest coast of British Columbia tucked under Alaska and as beautiful as it is I need to get off the island occasionally. I housesit twice a year for several months each time and I love the opportunity housesitting offers to spend the time to learn about the culture and people of the area I am visiting with these extended housesits. I have never had a problem with a housesit(and to my knowledge no one has had a problem with me)from your site and I have several repeat clients. I do due diligence as do my homeowners so there are rarely any surprises. Thanks for the service and your great customer service! Smiles Carolyn (Wanderbird)
