We are the USA's favorite House and Pet Sitting site. We provide a service that is really simple to use, very effective and it's all backed by consistently friendly service - from us!

We are always surprised by the generosity, thoughtfulness and decency of the wonderful house owners and sitters you'll find throughout this site.

Family owned and run

Now, back to us - House Sitters America is a family business, with a focus on great support and continual improvement. We've been helping people organize House Sitting for many years now, so there isn't much we don't know about house and pet sitting. We like to keep it very simple, allowing our members to connect with each other by providing great online tools, and then getting out of the way. Over the years we have facilitated tens of thousands of successful house sits, bringing all of that house-sitting goodness to sitters, house owners (and wonderful pets) all over the place.

Just wanted to let you know that after 5 weeks on Housesitters America I have picked up two house sits - one for 4 weeks starting in May and the other for nearly 3 months starting mid Nov later in the year. Just need one to fill the gap now. Thanks for the good service. Martin G

*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
