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, it’s easy to gain the peace of mind available from having your home looked after by a mature Housesitter member of SeniorSitters. Furthermore, it’s 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.

In short, therefore, 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, where you can browse opportunities available in your own city, state, country - or worldwide. However, while you can see what's available, you are only able to contact homeowners when you have paid the HouseCarers low annual membership fee of just $55 - which provides WORLDWIDE access! And, as a SeniorSitters member you get a 10% discount of this already low fee.

Hello there Sitters!  Summer in Brittany? position from APRIL TO SEPTEMBER OR LONGER

I am looking for a reliable, energetic and trustworthy couple to care for my large property and animals in Brittany. 

You will be full of joie de vivre, sociable and ready to immerse yourselves into a wonderful new life. Great with animals, (2 cats, 4 mini sheep, 2 mini pigs) and good with people! Non smokers (or very very discreet about it :-0 ), no more than moderate drinkers and ready to act on your own initiative.

Over the winter there are some maintenance jobs. I will come over to see you once you've settled in and show you what they are. There are numbers to call for plumbers etc and you won't be asked to renovate the pigsty!

All utilities are included and the accommodation has just been redecorated and spring cleaned ready for your arrival !

If you like the sound of it, please get in touch and I'll give you full details.
