5 Reasons To Become a House Sitter TODAY!



Looking for a way to travel the world, in comfort, often luxuriously, for free?! Well you've come to the right place: welcome to House Sitting.

In general, House Sitting is a fair exchange of skills and assets between Home Owner(s) and House Sitter(s). The Home Owner goes on holiday and leaves the house, and often pets, in the trusted hands of the House Sitter. 

The Home Owner can have a relaxing holiday not worrying about the state of their home or animals (not to mention saving hundreds of dollars or more on kennel fees). 

As to the advantages to the House Sitters, read on to find out more!!

[And if you'd like to hear the long-winded version of what House Sitting is, read our oldest, most popular post: What Is House Sitting?

So without further delay, here are 5 Reasons To Become a House Sitter TODAY!


1. You Can Travel The World FOR FREE!

In exchange for looking after the Home Owner(s) house and pets, House Sitter(s) get free accommodation. House Sits are available almost everywhere in the world, which effectively means House Sitters can travel the world for FREE! Without having to worry about paying for hotels or hostels (or rent, or mortgages etc).

But it doesn't just stop at free housing, bills are included too: electricity, gas, water, wifi, council tax etc. 

Additionally, depending a little on the generosity of the Home Owners and/or the difficulty of the sit, House Sitters often get the use of a car, get left food and occasionally get paid. 

So if travel has always been your dream, but you simply can't afford it, House Sitting might be the answer you've been looking for. 



2. You Can Travel In Luxury


Okay, contrary to popular opinion, there are actually lots of ways to travel for free, in fact here is a list of 10 Unusual Ways To Travel For Free. But this isn't any free accommodation, you won't be staying on a sofa (like you can do with couchsurfing), or sleeping in a tent (which often happens with volunteering), or sleeping in a 12 bed hostel dorm (which is not usually free). 

No, more often than not House Sitters get luxury accommodation. Be that luxury in the sense that you won't have to share your accommodation with anyone else (apart from the odd furry friend or two), or luxury in the literal sense:

Mansions with pools, vineyards, jacuzzis, saunas, tennis courts - you name it, we've probably house sat one of them. 



3. You Can Travel With Home Comforts


Luxury travel isn't for everyone, but having access to a washing machine almost always is. Earlier this year we travelled around Asia, we worked with luxury hotels and adventure companies, and had the best time of our lives, but boy did we miss the home comforts of House Sitting.

Home comforts like having a washing machine, a fully functional kitchen, but most of all the love of animal friends:



4. You Never Know What Will Happen Tomorrow


If travelling the world is your dream, do it now. Don't wait until your retired - what if you're too sickly by that point? What if you don't make it to that point? 

Don't even wait a year to save up some money. Who knows what can happen in a year? Again you could be too sickly or not around! Do. It. Now. 


With House Sitting, excuses like 'I can't afford it', 'I like my home comforts', 'I want to travel luxuriously' don't work - you can have it all with House Sitting - and more!! 

Even the excuse of 'I have kids' won't work here - did I mention you can house sit with your kids? There are plenty of families that do, and plenty of Home Owners (often with kids or grandkids of their own) who would be happy to have you.
