Housesitting and/or Pet Sitting
For the last three years, I've traveled the world while housesitting and/or pet sitting. I find it a beautiful way to help someone else travel and explore, knowing their home, property and pet(s) are lovingly taken care of.
I can happily send you updates daily, with or without photos, or let you enjoy your trip. It's completely up to you.
I prefer longer term (30+ day) sits, although I'm flexible.
I've listed this as "virtual" so that it shows up for everyone - but obviously I need to be in your city/town to help. :)
Usually, I Skype with the people beforehand so we can see if it's a good fit - I often don't meet the folks I housesit for!
Any questions or concerns you have, I'm all ears. If I feel there's someone out there that's a better fit, I'll share with you the (inexpensive) services I use to connect you with someone, and give you my discount code as well. Or, I'll post to my own personal networks (housesitting email list, Facebook group, etc) on your behalf.
Please feel free to grab this service as well if you just want to ask me a few questions or assuage your fears about housesitting, how to use or pick a service, etc. I have written extensively about both sides this type of exchange (housesitting, petsitting) and am happy to help however I can.
