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.

...wanted to let you know how wonderful I’ve found the site ( Sitter)
Hi guys, I’ve just been reading through the changes on the site...and wanted to let you know how wonderful I’ve found the site, and how delighted to know you guys are Kiwi, or at lest Kiwi based. As a Kiwi myself, it’s always nice to know help is close at hand. Never needed it since using you in 2013, but it’s still nice to know. I really like the site, and given my personal background with Bookabach.co.nz before retiring to sit internationally, I can see how much work you’ve put into it. Well done, and thanks!
