To Make House Sitting Even MORE Fun

House Sitting is a fun, exciting new life-change, if you’ve never done House Sitting before. But there are some things to make House Sitting even more fun. The following things are what I look for, to make House Sitting even more fun…

  • The pets and animals that I have always liked, need to be present at the House Sitting job
  • Location of the particular House Sitting job: it has to be a place to my personal liking, and the travel there and back, needs to be personally enjoyable.
  • House and property need to be appealing with what they have to offer for me, as in my likes, and feeling whilst there.

The Pets and Animals retriever-348572_640

If you personally like the kind of pet or animal that you are Pet Sitting,  obviously you enjoy being around it, caring for it, playing with it. I personally love most all animals, but particularly dogs, horses, donkeys, and pigs. When I get to House Sit with these animals present, then the House Sitting, Pet Sitting, Animal Minding experience is always so much more fun. You can sound like an idiot sometimes, but I always “talk to the animals!” It’s great fun, and I’m absolutely positive that the pets and animals get a closer bond with you. 100022800pig-214349_640

House Sitting Job Location

The location means so much to me whilst looking for a House Sitting job

Where the House Sitting job is located means a lot to me. I love historic places, spectacular scenery, and isolation, but also need to have a town nearby somewhere. Therefore when researching an area of a potential House Sitting job I have these above attributes in mind. Also I love travel: the further, the better. I mean; I love to drive. I have always loved driving, so therefore if the House Sitting job is at the top of the South Island of New Zealand, then I would love it! (I live at the bottom of New Zealand, in the most beautiful province: Southland)

Whilst House Sitting

Photography is a great hobby whilst doing House Sitting work

Photography is also a growing passion of mine, scenery is a very important part of my House Sitting tick list. In this way it’s not just a House Sit (every House Sit is special to me)  it’s an opportunity; to spend time, taking photos in surroundings that I love. Sometimes I just love taking “snap shots” of the animals and pets that I’m Pet Sitting, which adds to make House Sitting even more fun. I look back on the photos, and memories come flooding back of that particular House Sitting job.

On the “road trip” to Charleston, West Coast, South Island, NZ House Sitting job.

I love travel, in particular driving, so each House Sitting job in NZ is a potentially a nice drive for me

Driving around New Zealand and also Australia, is fun. Admittedly driving around Adelaide was a little stressful, as I was not used to the huge volumes of traffic, compared to little old Invercargill, New Zealand. I made preparations for that though, and bought myself a GPS for the car we were using. Without the little “Tom Thumb” GPS, driving around Adelaide, and it’s beautiful surroundings would have been very, very stressful!

The South Island of New Zealand is spectacularly beautiful though. I’m not just saying that because I come from there, but it has every kind of landscape; Desert like (McKenzie Country) Alps, lakes, Fiords, and Rainforests. Everything to make you love where you live.

House and Property

This place has the sort of character I would look for in a House Sit


Location: Stewart Island, Southland,NZ Photo by Jeff Hawkes


I love older homes and Villas. They make a more enjoyable and fun House Sitting experience for me

I look for a house and property that have what it takes for me personally. I love: old looking, wooden, or stone cottages. If there is a beautiful old Villa, or cottage, that looks great, and has all the comforts I desire, then I would be particularly interested (as long as the House Sit had the other qualifying things; like the location, and the right pets and animals.) But you first have to apply for the House Sitting, Pet Sitting animal minding job, and hope that your particular profile is what the Pet Owner, Animal owner, Home-Owner is looking for!


A House Sitting, Pet Sitting, Animal Minding job that meets all of my requirements; to make House Sitting even more fun, then as a House Sitter; I am fulfilled.
