House sitting has truing changed the way we travel. In all honesty, it has changed the way we live! For the past 2 years we have been bouncing around the "world" (between the US & Europe) from one house sit to the next and it has been an incredible experience. Not only does house sitting allow us to travel with ZERO accommodation costs, it allows us to experience a location like a local.

 

So how does it work? Simply join a house sitting network (we prefer TrustedHousesitters.com) and build a solid, inviting profile. Look for a house sit in a location you want to visit or during dates you would like to travel, apply, and hope for the best! We have traveled to 7 different Countries (and 5 US states) in the past year while house sitting! not only do you get to wander the world, you also get to take care of some pretty cool pets.

 

You can find house sits for a weekend or for an entire year, and everything in between. This allows you to either play tourist or live like a local. It may not be the most flexible way to travel, but if YOU are flexible, it is definitely the cheapest way to travel!

 

I cannot recommend House sitting enough! Check out our video, or check out different house sitting websites. Below I have listed my favorites (and why) and others I know of. Browse some sits & plan your next trip!

(Most) House sitting websites are not free, so you have to pick and choose. We are currently registered to 2 sites.
