Here’s what members have said about working with

Fantastic service

I have used HouseSitMatch twice now to find sitters to care for my home and dog while I travelled. Both times I have been exceptionally pleased with the sitters, from application to end of the house sit. I also find the website easy to use and their support quick and personal. I highly recommend!
