Course Description

As a house sitter you get to experience new kind of traveling and best of all pay nothing for accommodation!

This enables you to travel longer and further!

House sitting is the best way to way to experience life as a local in new destination. I have been house sitting in luxury home in New York, beach property in Ecuador, hustle and bustle of Singapore & Bangkok, City Centre apartment in Panama, London & Sydney and many more. 

House sitting allows you to:

  • Travel the world on a budget and for longer

As a house sitter you are able to live like a local plus you will stay in apartment or a house much larger than any hotel room! House sitting enables you to save money on more important things like extending your holidays, sightseeing and being able to see more destinations.
