Simply put our services are free. This may seem a little odd considering we’re providing a professional, full-time house-sitting service, but we basically rely on the generosity of our clients and any money we make from our writing and photography to keep us going.

Over the years we have both run a selection of reputable businesses, but when we started House-sitting Life we thought we would try something a little less stressful. Besides, exchanging the time we spend caring for your pets and home, for the free accommodation, internet, utilities and such that you provide seemed like a fair trade.

Many clients have, however, been generous enough to offer us some form of reimbursement, in the form of food, drinks, or gift vouchers, as well . This is why we’ve set up a PayPal account specifically linked to this site. Plus why we’ve placed a ‘Buy Coffee’ button on this site (attached to said PayPal account) to make any such gifts easier.
