What is house sitting?

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.

We just finished our fifth house sit! ( Sitter)

We just finished our fifth house sit since joining just before the pandemic struck in 2020. It has been a wonderful experience, offering the opportunity to visit areas of interest while making new friends in other countries and taking care of lovely cats. We’ve done two sits in the United States, two in the UK, one in Dublin and another one coming up in Toronto. Whenever people we encounter ask us about why we’re in their area, we explain about MindMyHouse and they are always intrigued and amazed—so hopefully more folks will be coming to this wonderful exchange! Many thanks to the site providers for such a convenient way to locate quality house sitting experiences.
