How to Become a House Sitter

Over the past 3 years of travel Dalene and Peter Heck have spent more than half of it as house sitters. They have taken assignments in Ireland, Belgium, Turkey, Spain, Honduras, Canada, London, and New York. Not only have they been able to experience exotic locations in a very intimate way, but have also saved over $30,000 in accommodation costs.

How to Become a House Sitter 

“Hey! You'll never guess what I did today…” I looked up at Pete coyly from behind the computer as he hesitantly took off his jacket and pulled up a chair. He knew that look. He knew I was about to lay something big on him.

Was he scared? Or excited? I couldn't tell.

I spilled the story. How, while he was out exploring London, a most interesting email appeared in my inbox. How, without asking him, I acted on it.

I told him that we'd soon be off to spend some extended time in New York – a city we had both dreamed of exploring.

The best part? We would be staying in New York RENT-FREE. In a city where we would otherwise never be able to afford to stay more than six days, we were going to stay for six weeks.  (He quickly forgave me for making plans without his consent. How could he not? It's New York City, baby!)

Be A House Sitter Around the World

Such is the wonderful world of house-sitting: a concept that has allowed us to explore nine different countries without spending a dime on accommodations. We've spent nearly 500 nights rent-free around the globe (saving over $30,000!), while caring for luxurious homes and country estates, cuddling kitties and strolling with dogs.

This is our absolute favorite way to travel.

Not only do we save substantial amounts of money, but we can blow away the guide books and experience local culture like we never dreamed possible. Without house-sitting, we would never have experienced living in a 10th century manor in Ireland, having a beautiful Caribbean beach all to ourselves, or helping Turkish teens improve their English.
