Housesitting in Brazil

What it is and how to get started

What is housesitting?

Housesitting is becoming a popular way of travelling on a budget.

Basically, it’s an exchange of services between volunteers (housesitters) and homeowners, whereby the sitters are on site to look after the owners’ pets and provide security for their home while they’re away for a period of time. In return, the sitters typically enjoy rent-free accommodation.

Usually, the cost of utilities such as gas and electricity, are covered by the host, too. So, for the housesitter, any financial commitment is normally limited to transportation and living costs. Where a financial contribution is required by the host it’s usually stipulated as such in their listing.

For more information, you can read our extensive guide to the world of housesitting.
