Break Free: The Ultimate Guide to Housesitting


Making travel plans for 2017? This could be you… 

Housesitting is a win-win solution for everyone. Home and pet owners handpick someone to keep their homes safe while they are away, and housesitters can live like locals in rent-free accommodation in locations all around the world.

We have had more than 20 housesits totaling over 24 months of free accommodation on FOUR continents. 

These are places that would cost $100s per night, like a remote Caribbean beach house in Mexico, an apartment in New York City, a bed and breakfast to ourselves in Tuscany, a luxury condo in Santiago, Chile, a house in comfortable, quiet neighborhood in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, a house with a Jacuzzi and in-home theater outside the Canadian capital, and so on…

“Break Free is a comprehensive guide that will tell you everything you could want to know about house-sitting.” – Tina

“The book is full of practical information like what questions homeowners and housesitters should ask each other before committing and during the “handover.”’ – Kate

“Break Free was exactly what I wanted in the housesitting guide–and then it went beyond and offered information and samples beyond what I expected. When I read Break Free, I loved how the book took me patiently through every step of the process(steps that were more painless than I had been imagining), and detailed the how and why of each part of the process. Then, they added in personal anecdotes, stories and photos throughout the book in just the right dose to keep the material engaging and interesting alongside all of the information they manage to pack into the guide.” – Shannon

“Break Free really deserves its subtitle as the ultimate guide to housesitting. It answers every question or concern you could possibly have about housesitting–both from a sitters and a homeowner’s perspective.” – Erin
