Imagine staying at an incredible beach house in Australia… for free. Or rather, in exchange for taking care of the homeowner’s adorable pets. If you’re thinking, piece of cake, I love animals!, this website is your dream come true.
TrustedHousesitters.com connects wanderlusters who feel bad about leaving their pets behind with travelers that’d love to look after their house and pets in exchange for a free place to stay. It’s a win-win for both parties. Travelers get a free place to stay, and homeowners know their pets are well taken care of without having to fork over any cash. Well, except for the membership fee, which is a little over $100 per year.
Of course, to score the hottest houses on the site, you’ll need to build up a good profile and reputation first. You can start by watching pets in your area to build up your reviews. The site makes it easy to search houses in need of a pet sitter by area.
Once you have a stellar profile, it won’t be long before you’re jetting off to a beautiful location with cute and cuddly pets just waiting for you to love on them. And free accommodations to boot!
It's less than $10 a month, or a little over $100 per year to become a member. That's less than you'd pay a pet sitter to watch your animals. According to CostHelper.com, overnight pet sitting costs between $50 and $70 per night.
It's also a win-win for pet sitters who get to travel the road, play with pets, and enjoy free accomodations. Some of which are as awesome as this dreamy 3-story mansion...
Or this waterfront gem...
Pinch me, I must be dreaming!
