The concept of House Sitting is new to a lot of people. As a result I get many emails requesting me to simply explain the system.
In essence it is very simple.
A House Sitter moves into your home while you are away on holiday. They look after your home and pets for you and in return they receive a rent free holiday in your home.
The house owner saves money by not having to pay anyone to look after their home and pets. For example In the UK having someone to look after your pets costs an average of £200 per week. The majority of us can’t afford that. And even then if you hire a sitter through an agency they select the person. You have no idea who you are letting into your home.
Using the Christian House Sitters service you are able to make contact with potential sitters and prayerfully select the right person or persons.
They have the security of knowing that their home and pets are being looked after by a responsible Christian.
The House Sitter gets to travel and stay in lovely homes rather than an expensive and often characterless hotel room.
For example recently Marilyn & I spent a couple of months living in France and a year later we spent 3 months in the Italian Mountains. This was something we could not have afforded without being house sitters. We became part of the local community and had a lovely time.
In return we looked after beautiful houses and their pets.
Remember if you have any questions you can always email me.
