... House is five minutes from the bus stop and the local shops. We are 10 minutes drive from the major shopping mall. House is minimal care, recently renovated kitchen, laundry and en suite - we have four chickens and they are great daily providers of fresh eggs. There are great walks in this area and sheep paddocks close by. Also have cycling trails which go throughout Canberra. The house is centrally heated and very comfortable. Twenty minutes from the centre of Canberra. Great neighbours.
I am so grateful for this service. For the past eight years it has made our vagabond retirement years possible. Thanks to the wonderful people (the house sitters) we have gotten to know through this website we have been able to travel completely at ease about the care of our home, pets and garden.
I do my job of carefully considering and responding to each one who answers our ad, checking references and reviewing a clear contract, but each sitter has more than fulfilled what was expected of them. My neighbors who were initially horrified that we were traveling while "strangers" were left in our home have all become friends with our various sitters and now use the website themselves!
Thank you, thank you for this good idea and for keeping it going in such a responsive, organized way!.. Sid and Doni, WinteringGround, Grass Valley, Sacramento CA USA
All done! The chickens and I are having a blast with the new chicken house!

We are in a wonderful "banana belt" region of the Sierra Foothills, situated 1/2 hour from Grass Valley, 2 hours from Lake Tahoe, about one and a half hours from Sacramento and 3 hours from San Francisco. We overlook a large 800 acre lake fed by the South Fork of the Yuba River and we can promise you beautiful views and gentle lake breezes. We have a swimming pool but there is enough rain in the winter to make that more scenic than usable. A winter housesit is inviting for people who like to hike the trails on the ranch or visit nearby lakes,rivers and Gold Country towns and museums. Our up to date, easy to care for home is on a 200 acre property of rolling hills, oaks and pines. The charming little Gold Country towns of ...
We recently had housecarers GentleCloud2012 to sit our home and our two dogs for three months. They were a terrific couple who looked after everything so beautifully and the dogs just loved them. Thankyou so much, Milliemouse... Dandenong Ranges Vic Australia
Our 2 chihuahuas who live mostly indoors in the winter
... We require a caring sitter for our home and 2 chihuahuas who live mostly indoors in the winter. Situated in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges approx an hour from Melbourne. Shopping is 5 minutes away and there are many local attractions including Puffing Billy and Sherbrooke Forest.
This 100 year old steam train is still running on the original rails between the mountain towns of Belgrave and Gembrook in the Dandenong Ranges.
Low maintenance home on 1 acre with lots of trees and birds. Lawn mowing only occasionally and garden care to keep tidy
Once again (the 4th time for us, actually), we have found the ideal housesit opportunity through Housecarers. Feel free to use this as a reference. It was, once again, well worth the $50 to get the "preferred service" on your website.
We will be spending Christmas in Kitsilano, Vancouver, British Columbia.
The ad was posted as "kevinalove". We talked and exchanged emails over the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend. We and they are feeling very comfortable with the match and the timing is perfect for spending Christmas with our son who lives in Vancouver.View filled Housesit, kevinalove, Vancouver Canada

Hi Lew and Laura Thanks for the feedback and comments. It is always good to hear stories like yours What are your main reasons for housesitting? And where are you from?
We always housesit in the Vancouver area where our son lives. It's great because he always checks the place out and meets the owners. The owners always feel more comfortable having gained a feeling for who we are by talking to Neil. In each case they have offered Neil his own bedroom which we usually take advantage of so that we can spend more time together.

Hello House Carers, I wanted to thank you as we have just returned from a holiday, having used your site for the first time, and found a very reliable, lovely lady, PEACEHOUSESITTER , to look after our home and pets. We received several replys within a couple of days, after posting our ad, and I kept pinching myself while on holidays as i couldn't believe we had found the perfect carer with little effort! I will definitely use your site again and will recommend it to family and friends. It has opened my eyes and my husband and I are looking forward to a time when we may become house carers, whilst enjoying seeing other parts of the world. Kind Regards ....Melissa (username relax56)
...Beautiful Victorian house in the coastal village of Thirroul. Close to train station, cafes, quirky shops, stunning beaches, coastal bike tracks, escarpment walks
Just wanted to tell you what a terrific site this is. We have matched with wonderful housesitters through you, and have recommended it frequently to fellow travelers (which is how we learned about it). Keep up the good work... Jay... username houseoverlake.
....We live in a contemporary glassed-in cedar home cantilevered over a small quiet lake in Western Mass. Depending on the season, the lake can be used for swimming, non-motorized boating, water and ice fishing, skating and skiing. Great wildlife and beautiful views... HouseOverLake
