Simply put, house sitting is the practice whereby a home owner, leaving their house for a period of time, entrusts it to one or more "house sitters", who by a mutual agreement are entitled to live there rent-free in exchange for assuming responsibilities such as taking care of the homeowner's pets, performing general maintenance etc.

I have only had very good experiences here ( Sitter)
I have recently resubscribed to MindMyHouse as a house and pet sitter after a two-year hiatus. In the past, I joined other per sitting sites, as well as this one but the customer service from the admin team/owners encouraged me to join MindMyHouse once again as a sitter. I have only had very good experiences here. The same cannot be said for other sites to which, I no longer am a member because they have become too impersonal and self-serving. MindMyHouse has always been polite, responsive, and eager to find a solution regardless of the query, all qualities sadly missing from many customer service experiences. I introduced my mother as a sitter (on the other side of the world) who also stand by her experiences here too. I am happy to be back and look forward to many more house and pet sits!
