Meetup - Anyone in Algarvae/Andalusia 17th-25th Oct.?

Hi All!
I’m Melissa and loving the sitter’s life!:grin:

Will be living in Spain at the border with Algarvae and would love to meet fellow sitters or hosts alike!

Hi @MelissaN
A warm welcome to the forum. There are so many interesting topics here to explore, so do enjoy perusing.

As a sitter, if you add your profile link here >>, This will also give members here a little more about you.

Enjoy chatting to our members from around the world and hopefully there may be someone close to you who can connect up with you on your dates.
Best Wishes
Therese and the Forum team.


Hi @MelissaN and welcome! We love seeing members engaging with other members…brings such strength to our community!

Thank you for joining our community forum. You are going to find it is filled with answers to most, if not all, of your questions and enquiries.

My name is Debbie and I am one of the forum moderators, as well as a sitter member of TrustedHousesitters. I was an owner member for three years and have now moved over to a sitter membership, so I have insight into both sides of the memberships.

I am hoping this info will help you find your way around the platform and interest you to join in the conversations. It can be a little daunting and confusing at first, so we included this handy guide

How to use our Community Forum |

Our members are connecting every day and the forum is a great place where you can get to know one another. Please take a moment to introduce yourself About the introduce yourself category - Introduce Yourself - TrustedHousesitters Community Forum by giving us as little or as much info as you prefer. If you are confused on what to say, we have some great suggestions:

  • How long have you been a member of Trustedhousesitters?
  • Where is your home location?
  • As a sitter, please share with us where you prefer to sit (dream location, bucket list, etc.)
  • If presently on a sit, tell us about the location and the pets you are caring for.
  • Share pics of you, your own pets, or pets you have cared for or are caring for.

We are always here to help, so please don’t hesitate to message us with any questions or concerns.

Also, can I just ask how you came upon the forum and decided to join? I am always curious as to what drives someone to a certain site.

Have a great day!

Hi @MelissaN,

I think friend and member @Maryse had mentioned to me that they would be in that area but I am not sure if they’ll have already left. Hopefully she’ll see this next time she is online and be able to let you know.

Bumping this as date coming up soon.

Hi Melissa,
@Maryse and Jeff sat for us here in Tavira (east Algarve). If you could find your way over to Castro Marim, Quinta do Vale golf course on Tues. ~25th ~2pm, I could meet with you for a coffee at my club. Alternatively meet here in Tavira (30 min from Spainish border) on Mon. 24th. We live in Tavira.
Let me know!
