For just $55 a
year, membership of SeniorSitters and our associate HouseCarers opens up
a world of
accommodation nationwide or worldwide
it's up to you.
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?
Listings are on our associated website, HouseCarers.com,

country - or worldwide. However, while you can see what's available, you
are only able to contact homeowners when you have paid the HouseCarers

- Dec 12, 2014 for 3 weeks
to Jan 03, 2015
Our German family would like to go on
holiday this winter and will not be in Hong Kong from 12
December till 03 January 2015. Unfortunately, we do not have
somebody to look after our dog, cat, house and plants.
We hope to find a good couple, with
experience in house sitting, which is interested in staying
a few weeks in Hong Kong's green and rural area. Our home is
about 30 minutes by subway to Hong Kong central districts
and is situated in a valley surrounded by natural forest and
mountains, which are ideal for hiking.
Looking forward to receive feedback
and hope to find some nice people to stay with our pets
