CASE STUDY – Scanii a homeowner in Spain has complemented us on the messaging on our website between members once they are logged in. The secure communications on the site allow you to send private messages between homeowner and housesitters.
As a regular traveler who needs housesitters on a frequent basis at her home in Spain to secure her property and care for her two small dogs, Scanii finds that because she travels so much her own email accounts often become clogged up and difficult to navigate.
