Do you travel often and find it difficult to source reliable and trusted pet sitters or housesitters to look after your home and animals? Or perhaps you are looking for a convenient way to travel on a budget while experiencing a more authentic holiday?

Finding the right house or person for the job can be a difficult task with lots to consider. That’s why the Euro Weekly News has put together this handy guide to help you find the best pet sitters and housesitters in Marbella.

Although there are many websites that claim to specialise in pet sitting and housesitting services, letting a stranger into your home to look after your property or beloved furry best friend is no easy task. However, having a housesitter or pet sitter while you are on holiday is a cost-effective option with many benefits.

It allows homeowners to personally choose who will take care of their pet and property while away, with the peace of mind that their house will be secure, their garden will be tended to and the comfort that their pet is in a familiar setting. This option also avoids high boarding fees for cats and dogs and increased insurance premiums – having someone in your home while you are away is a huge deterrent for burglars.
