Cutting the cost of your holiday accommodation with house-sits booked can make an exotic or long distance holiday suddenly more affordable, or an additional trip with the family a reality. For example, for the adventurous right now on HouseSit Match there is a 6-week house-sit near Sydney. New South Wales (NSW). In exchange, you will care for the homeowners property and pets. Our house-sit in Carlingford has a gorgeous one year old golden retriever called Dexter.This house-sit equates to no hotel or hostel bills during a long stay in a glorious part of the new world. The house-sit is in Carlingford, NSW, only 25km (and with easy access to public transport) to Sydney Harbour and all the city sites.

2. With house-sits – you find more affordable family holidays, enabling you to enjoy a change of scene somewhere new

House-sitting with children can be tricky. Not all homeowners are happy to accommodate someone elses offspring in their home. However, occasionally an owner will appreciate the benefits of ensuring the home is lived in during their absence for security’s sake and the well being of pets. Children at a house-sit can be very beneficial for both parties. Pets loved and cherished by the children and the home occupied and cared for by the sitters. One such house-sit that is available at the moment is located in Wales, United Kingdom. Children are welcome at this house-sit which offers a spacious home equipped for the owners own family. The house-sitters must care for one parrot, a characterful African Grey called Ozzy. He is playful and loves to interact with visitors. The sitters also need to care for the vegetable garden at the property, and the owners invite you to collect and use the produce (because it encourages more growth!). During the house-sit of 3-4 weeks the sitters can enjoy many tourist options, visiting the stunning beaches along the Gower Peninsula, castles along the coast such as and the thriving cities of Cardiff and Swansea.
