House Sitting Services

What Our House Sitters can do for you

With Sitters4U, your house sitter may have any of the following duties whilst you are away:

  • May live in or out of your home.
  • May care for your pets.
  • May care for your garden.
  • Maintain your pool.
  • Ensure through his/her presence that your home and possessions are safe.

When you are away from home there is nothing more disturbing than not knowing what’s going on at home or leaving your pets in a cage while you are away. Our house sitters will put your mind at ease.
