Our housesitters are personally interviewed
and carefully screened for their maturity and reliability. We
look for people with a love for animals, an enthusiasm for caring
for homes and gardens, and a demonstrated awareness of security
issues. All our housesitters have first class personal references,
supply a police clearance certificate (or equivalent) and a refundable
We endeavour, where possible, to match sitters as closely as
possible to your particular requirements.
Simply Sitting’s housesitters will:
• Feed, exercise and care for pets
• Maintain gardens
• Check security around the home
• Put out the garbage
• Collect mail
Leaving a home unattended may make it a target for unwanted guests.
A live-in housesitter acts as a natural deterrent, giving a home
an “occupied” look.
Having pets looked after in their own home environment ensures
they receive the individual attention they deserve. Our housesitters
will feed, exercise, play with, talk to, groom and medicate animals
of all shapes and sizes, based on the homeowner’s instructions.
Homeowners can return to a garden that’s been watered and
cared for. Simply Sitting’s housesitters will do basic garden
care and pool maintenance.
