Great information for beginners & travelers

I'm new to the idea of house sitting plus travel. I've found lots of useful information in House Sitting Magazine that I can apply to traveling in general, plus I'm learning about house sitting as a way to travel.


Informative, interesting and colourful

We have confirmed our first house sitting opportunity this summer in the UK and this magazine is offering us so many insights and hints. I like the variety of articles from so many people who give their own perspective and experience. 


Real people with real advice

I am in the beginning stages of researching house sitting, so any information for me is great. This magazine did NOT waste my time, as others have! I am delighted to have found it.
Thank you and I will continue to follow you.

They divide their time between producing House Sitting Magazine, running a large support group for the community, helping others begin their own unique lifestyle journeys, partaking of frequent travel adventures, while spending a large amount of their time cuddling pets!
