House Sitting

Accommodation can be one of the most expensive parts of travelling and is one cost we are hoping to minimise as we move around. One of the ideas we had in order to do this was to look at house sitting, where you get accommodation rent free in exchange for looking after the owner’s home/garden/pets. We decided to sign up to an Australian house sitting site, so we knew we would be getting reputable house sits (trying to avoid another accommodation fiasco!). It cost us $65 to join the site and create our sitter profile for a year, which meant we only needed to get a house sit for one night to break even. Since joining we have been contacted by several people asking us to come and look after their house and pets while they are away and have confirmed a sit for a week in Adelaide and a month in Melbourne. Our first house sit is just beginning and I am looking forward to exploring Adelaide and the surrounding area. I will be sure to let you know how we get on with the house sitting and what we discover in Adelaide, have a nice Easter weekend!
