    This really is a win-win situation for homeowners and housesitters!!! We are so grateful to Trusted housesitters for the experiences we’ve been able to have and the pets we’ve been able to look after.

    Great site but it’s a race to the finish as soon as the house sitting emails come out.

    An excellent site. I have used trusted housesitters to find housesitters and also to be a housesitter. Both times I was very impressed with the site and service.

    We are very grategul that we stumbled across trustedhousesitters.com when we did. If it wasnt for trustedhousesitters.com we wouldnt have been able to go away this year (a long story but a lot of financial trouble) and so glad now that we could.

    Nice site. I haven’t been a member long but so far I am impressed.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5


    Having been a member of several house sitting sites I can honestly say Trusted Housesitters is the best.

    First of all, it has the most house sits. I’m members of several other sites and I get at least 4 times as many house sitting assignments emailed to me from trusted house sitters.

    Second, design. Trusted Housesitters wins here hands down. No other site is as easy to use as Trusted Housesitters (with the exception of the messaging system).

    Third, customer service. Trusted Housesitters has great customer service and it’s great being able to live chat with any questions I have.

    I would give trusted house sitters six stars if I could!!!! Genuinely the best website there is out there. It’s complete changed my life and allowed me to travel to seven different countries and live like a local while I was there. I hope to do more house sitting this year!!!!

    Wouldn’t consider joining another site. Trusted Housesitters is by far the best in every respect.

    If there’s one site that we always renew our membership with, it’s Trusted Housesitters. It’s a busy site but it’s always the site that we get the most house sittings from.

    We are members of three different sites – house carers, trustedhousesitters and house sitters. Of the three, trustedhousesitters has the most housesits every single day. We are happy to renew our membership to them again.

    Have used Trusted House Sitters as home owners and are considering using them as house sitters some time in the future. Quality of sitters were excellent. Far better than we expected. We had not only a good number of applications from people keen to house sit for us, but the majority of those were of a very high calibre as welll.
    Communication with each of the sitters was good, although the site could do with some updating in this respect as it was often difficult to find old messages and to recall the conversation we had been having prior. Overall however, Trusted House Sitters is a fantastic site with a great quality of house sitter and we hope to join the ranks of them soon.

    Trustedhousesitters is the best site out there. I used the promo code to get a discount signing up but it doesn’t work when we I try to renew the membership?

      Trusted House Sitters only give discount codes to new members, so you’ll only get one opportunity to use the discount code. Because of this, it makes sense to sign up for a year rather than a shorter period of time (e.g. three months).

    Top site!

  14. Rated 5 out of 5


    A five star review from me. I have been using Trusted House Sitters for several months now having finished up my membership with two other house sitting sites. It is by far the best house sitting site out there. None of the others even come close.

    I see a lot of people complain about the competition. This is true yes but its a small price to pay for being a member of a site that actually has relevant house sitting jobs.

  15. Rated 1 out of 5


    most of our applications went unanswered. they have a bizarre way of, what appears to be promoting other sitters on houses you are applying for. it is the most expensive such service. i would try others.

      Thanks for the review Brian. There can be a bit of a snowball effect with Trusted Housesitters: once you get a few house sits through them (and build up references through the site etc) you start getting accepted for more and more. Some people apply for lots of house sits initially, often taking on ones just for the sake of a reference, in order to get that snowball rolling.

    Pro House Sitters

    We are members of all the various housesitter sites including mindmyhouse and housecarers and trustedhousesitters.com is the best. Every day there are new house sitting jobs to apply for which isnt necessarily the case with all of the other house sitter companies. trustedhousesitters.com also tends to have better housesitting jobs…the houses are nicer than with other companies.

    the only downside is the price which goes up every year.

    Fantastic house sitting site. The best site I’ve found so far for house sitting. I’ve used it to find house sitting jobs in the UK .. especially in London.

      Thanks for reviewing Trusted Housesitters Sean! Yes, they tend to be very good for London house sits. Their offices are actually based just down the road in Brighton.

    I strongly suggest to skype to house sit family. There are many personalities out there and some people are not so trusting….you may get treated like a child to a point. Some of the homes look nice on line but are truly dirty to filthy so you may have to do significant house cleaning just to go to sleep there.
    After you have done 5-10 you will get the true feel of this experience from good to excellent.
    I encourage people to not start off with large time commitments because you may get seriously burned.
    Start small and work up to weeks.

      Hi Monica,

      These are great tips. With any house sitting site (incl. Trusted Housesitters) it’s a bit of a lottery in terms of what the homeowners turn out to be like. I would also recommend that if you’re going to do a long-term house sit, you try and see the property (and the owners) first if this is at all possible. It’s much harder on both parties if you turn up and you’re not happy with the setup.

      Once you have a few house sitting assignments under your belt, you will get offered more house sitting assignments and you’ll have a lot more freedom to pick and choose which ones you do. As you say, it’s probably better if those first few are shorter term house sitting assignments.

    I paid my money a few months ago and then made a mistake filling in my phone number. I have e-mailed for help 3 times and I ask for an *e-mail* in return so that I can have a code to fix it. Nothing. It’s been a waste of my money and I’m very upset.
