We have been using Aussiehousesitters for nearly two years to find places to house sit. This site has been the easiest house sitting site by far for us to find houses, and we have also had many individual requests from home owners through the site. The systems in place on this site are clear and easy to use. The conversations with owners section is very helpful. It is also easy to use the testimonial site and the administrators have been very helpful and quick to respond to us. We have had 100% positive experiences in both using the site and with the people for whom we have minded homes and pets. We have also made a lot of new friends and have had many repeat requests to sit from people. The volume of choice for house sits in the small area we have chosen is really high. I highly recommend this site for both sitters and home owners. Sandra and Ross
