No votes yet.

Free Short Term Accommodation (House Sitting) is the most popular house sitting website out there. Rated 4.5 on Trustpilot and with over 144k+ happy members, TrustedHousesitters connects home and pet owners with loving in-home sitters to care for their home and pets while they are away. 

If you’re a pet lover looking for unique homestays and real travel experiences in exchange for caring for people’s homes and pets, then TrustedHousesitters may just be for you! The main difference with TrustedHousesitters?  It’s a money-free exchange. Both owners and sitters simply pay an annual membership fee to enjoy unlimited worldwide house sits, or unlimited in-home house sitters. With nothing exchanged but love and care for pets (and a place for the sitter to stay in a return), it’s a complete win-win for all involved.
