I get loads of emails every day from all over the world. I am not talking about spam. Those I just delete without even reading. I mean real messages from real people who are interested to find out more about Christian House Sitters.
It is fun to look at the timing of the emails. When I wake up in the morning I normally have a bunch from Australia and New Zealand. As the day progresses I start getting the messages from Europe and the UK. Then late in the day and into the evening it is the USA and Canada that dominate my inbox.
We do our best to answer everyone within a maximum of 12 hours. Most are answered far quicker than that.
The most common is from people wanting to know what houses are going to become available at a specific location in the future.
I can’t see into the future. I only know what is available now. I will find out about future houses when their owners decide to list them.
So to try to answer most of the common questions here is a brief summary of what we do and how it works.
Who can Join?
Any Christian who belongs to a recognised Christian Church. People can register as a House Sitters, a Home Owners or as Both.
If you register as a home owner
We help you to find a house sitter to move into your home while you are away on vacation. They look after your home and pets for you and in return they receive a rent free holiday in your home. So the house owner saves money by not having to pay anyone to look after their home and pets. They have the security of knowing that their home and pets are being looked after by a responsible Christian.
If you register as a house sitter
You get to travel and stay rent free in lovely homes rather than an expensive and often characterless hotel room. You are notified about every new listing and can apply for as many as you like.
By becoming a registered House sitter you will benefit by being able to have short or long breaks in your own country or abroad.
Your only expense will be the actual cost of travelling to and from the destination and your food.
You will know that you are helping another Christian to have a break and that when you arrive you will be introduced to their Church and Christian friends.
Naturally it is entirely up to you to decide if you want to get involved or not.
Having done house sitting ourselves we know that arriving in a strange place knowing nobody can be lonely. This should be overcome through using this Christian website.
So what actually happens?
When you register as an owner we list your house details (without the specific address) on the restricted section of our website that can only be viewed by registered sitters. We also email all registered sitters drawing their attention to the listing.
Sitters then decide which houses they are interested in and click an enquiry button. That automatically sends the owners their details and their profile info. Then it is over to the owner to make contact and decide which application they like best, check references and arrange the sit.
What does this all cost?
Registration as an owner is free. Registration as a sitter is only £25 (or the equivalent in your local currency) per year. All of which goes to supporting a Christian Children’s Home in Kenya. The cost of running the service is covered by Marilyn and Ray White as a service.
