A sitter stays overnight in your home

House and pet care for while you are away

A house sitter will stay at your home while you are away to care for your pets and keep an eye on your home.

House sitting is a perfect choice for pets that prefer to stay in the comfort of their own home. Our house sitters are also a more cost effective option if you own several pets.

With house sitting, your house will be lived-in and far more secure with a trusted house sitter coming and going than an empty home.

We can’t thank Marta enough, for the great care she gave to Arya. Ever since the first message she has been replying in a matter of few minutes.She is so easy to talk to and at the same time very responsible. During the stay with our doggie, she kept us updated and made us absolutely comfortable that Arya is in good hands. You can see her passion for animals and the she wants to make sure the dog is feeling loved and cared, while the parents were away. Marta stayed at our home for the few days we were away, everything went great. Upon returning she even got us nice flowers for the house!🥰 I cant recommend her more, if you need a pet sitter! The best choice for your animal when you are away 😀! Again, Thank you Marta!

My dog feels it and she loves Idil back a lot, she is enjoying spending time with her and is being upset when Idil leaves. Also Simba is always fed, walked, played with and pampered when Idil takes care of her. Moreover, Idil is a very honest and decent person and I totally trust her when she stays at my house. Also, she is treating my
