The benefits of housesitting

And even in the case no pets are involved, there is always plenty to do in a house such us gardening activities, maintenance works or even just housekeeping works. Not to mention that also crime is deterred by the fact someone is in the house.

All these things mean that you can enjoy your holiday with not a single thing to worry about but just relaxing, which is the ultimate aim of a vacation.

If these are the benefits for who leaves, what about the benefits of housesitting for who comes in and so for the house sitter?

Well, of course saving money on accommodation is the most obvious one but there are also other advantages in housesitting such as exploring new places by living like a local and not like a tourist, i.e. meeting the community, having a chat with the neighbor while walking the dog, going to the shop and many more.
