For Home Owners
- Find capable, trustworthy House Sitters
Mindahome House Sitters are the best you'll find - and you're in complete control of screening and appointing them. And because many House Sitters treat this as a regular job, they're motivated to do the best they can with an eye to future placements with you or someone you recommend them to. You can count on a pool of motivated House Sitters who are trustworthy and reliable.
- Your pets stay comfortable in their own home
A happy pet means a happy owner. And pets are always happier and more comfortable in their own home instead of some strange kennel. Their own bed, their favourite toys, all the familiar sights and smells. All they need is a pet-loving House Sitter to provide companionship and exercise while you're away.
- Relax while away knowing all is well at home
You're on holiday - the last thing you need is worry. So enjoy peace of mind, comfortable in the knowledge that everything at home is in capable hands. Your pets are well cared for with regular close human contact. Plants are watered, mail collected and garden is tidy. The place is lived in, your House Sitter providing security for your property and possessions simply by being there.
- Save on pet boarding costs
Pet boarding can get expensive, especially for longer absences. With a House Sitter, though, your pets stay in the comfort of their own home and it doesn't cost you a penny.
For House Sitters
- Enjoy inexpensive travel accommodation
Think of all those places around the United Kingdom you've always wanted to visit and explore. Now imagine staying there, free of charge. In cities and regions across the United Kingdom, house sitting does away with the cost of hotel or motel accommodation.
- Live like a local
With the money you save by house sitting, you can really immerse yourself in the community and surrounds. Explore the area, participate in local activities, and experience life like a local - something the average tourist rarely gets to experience. As a house sitter, your time is your own.
- Indulge your love of pets
Even if you don't have your own pet doesn't mean you can’t indulge your love for animals. House Sitters get to choose jobs that include pet sitting for everything from puppies to snakes - which also gives you a much broader choice of homes to sit.
- Save money - lots of it
House Sitters often choose the lifestyle as a smart way to save money. By not paying rent, many save for a deposit on their own home, for a new car, or that dream overseas holiday. Whatever the reason, house sitting is a great way to have extra cash.
