How did you discover house sitting? What was your first introduction to house sitting. How did you find out about it?
We were using sitters over 10 years ago while living on a remote island in Panama where it was a necessity if leaving because of all the off-grid systems, but had no idea it was a “thing”. We just asked around locally and usually ended up with liveaboard sailors looking for some land time while riding out hurricane season.
It was only when selling up and researching our future long term travels we casually searched “house sitting” on google. Up popped TrustedHousesitters and some other sites. What a wonderful day that was!!
I asked this question today on Facebook and had so many wonderful answers, I thought it might be an inspiring question to ask of this community. Would love to hear your stories.
I’ve put this in general as it would be lovely to hear from sitters and owners both.
