House Sitting, Cape Town, Southern Suburbs
Insurance has its limits. They can only give you money back. They can't return your sentimental valuables or chase away the sense of personal violation a burglary creates.
If you are going away, having a reliable house sitter look after your home will give you peace of mind and allow you to enjoy your holiday without worrying if you left the stove on or if someone is ransacking your home.
If you have pets, putting them in a kennel can be a traumatic experience for them. Many kennels are like jail for pets. Why would you punish your beloved animals while you enjoy your holiday?
If you employ a reliable house sitter, they will look after both your home and your pets while you are away. Your pets will be loved and cared for in a familiar environment.
While you are away, enjoying your holiday, you can rest easy that everything will be as it should be upon your return, because your house sitters will take care of everything for you.
However, not all house sitters are created equal. Agencies may not properly vet the sitters they employ. What you need is a mature, retired couple that you can trust and whose references you can check.
Whatever you do, do not skimp and go the cheap route. Spend a reasonable amount to get the best care possible. Your holiday is not cheap, your valuables certainly aren't, neither are your pets, so don't let them down with the cheap option - protect your home and everything in it.
A retired mature couple, Frank and Liz, are available in Cape Town, Southern Suburbs only, to house sit. Reasonable daily rate. References available on request.
Please contact Liz on 073 239 7479. Please arrange for a house sit well in advance of your trip.
