How does it
work and what's the catch?
How it Works
Housesitting couldn't be simpler: A
housesitter cares for the owner's house and pets, if any, while the owner is
absent for whatever reason. This means the owner enjoys the peace of mind of
knowing that the house is being lived in (itself the most effective form of
security) and any pets cared for.
In return for accepting these responsibilities, the
sitter enjoys free accommodation for the duration of the owner's absence, or
whatever other period is agreed to. This may be as brief as a few days, or
several months. Even housesits in excess of a year are not unknown.
What's the Catch?
There's none really. From
the Owner's viewpoint, its easy to gain the peace of mind available
from having your home looked after by a mature Housesitter member of
SeniorSitters. Furthermore, its free!
From the housesitter's viewpoint it's a wonderful opportunity to see new
places and make new friends, and it's all free!
All the sitter need pay for is
food, local transport and getting to and from the housesit.
(Occasionally the owner will require payment for local utilities, phone,
etc, although, in our experience this is exceptional in the case of more
mature sitters, such as SeniorSitters members.
SeniorSitters opens up
an exciting world of opportunities provided by housesitting, showing how
you can broaden your horizons and save money too!
How do we find these free holidays?

House and pet care
for Dog and Cats from Sep 8 to Oct 10
House Sitter Needed for

Balearic Islands, Spain
- Sep 8,2014 until October
We are a couple in our 40s
and are looking for housesitters to take care of our house,
cats, dog and garden while we are away.
The house we live in is a
traditional spanish finca on the island of Mallorca. In 2009
the 200 (+) year old house was fully renovated with floor
heating, large rooms, open fire place, pool, private
driveway, high quality facilities & interior, outdoor
barbecue, big terraces, etc.
Furniture, rugs and interior
design are of highest quality.
This house is our little
paradise and a gem really. Situated in an idyllic setting
with ocean view, absolute quiet, remote in nature, fruit and
olive trees around, it is the ideal place to relax, retreat
and unwind. Also great for sport activities, such as tennis,
golf, water sports, biking or hiking, all available close
During your stay here, we
kindly ask you to take care of our three cats, our 1½ year
old brown Labrador, the plants and the garden. A lot of the
time the cats are out and about, but obviously need to be
fed regularly and of course love being cuddled. The potted
plants, the lawn as well as the veggie garden need to be
looked after, like watering, weeding or mowing.
Bodhi, our dog, needs regular walking twice a day, loves
swimming, playing and cuddles.
Over all it is easily doable, doesn't require any special
skills, but basic understanding of pets and plants and
ideally experience with dogs.
