Our Sitters

All of our sitters are retired or semi-retired. Allowing them to devote time to your needs without some of the split loyalties that may arise from time-to-time with a sitter who is in full time or part time employment. Because we value the trust placed in us by both our existing and future clients, we are only prepared to allocate house sitting assignments to persons who have been thoroughly vetted by us and who subscribe to our code of practice. Our sitters are animal lovers, non-smokers and all have the Advanced South African Police Clearance Certificate as well as a current driving licence. We have sitters available in Cape Town, Somerset West, Stellenbosch, Strand and George.
