Is House Sitting
Right For You?
 
YES! I am Ready to Join
Since February 2013 we have traveled the world through house sitting, and during that time have enjoyed 97% free lodgings, saving us on average $40000 a year on what it would have cost us for that accommodation.  

In fact, it is house sitting that has allowed us to travel globally full-time and stay in the amazing places we have. Without house sitting we would still be living in a fixed location somewhere, saving up to travel every now and then, and spending a bomb for the privilege... just like everyone else does.  

Essentially we chose to experience a different way of traveling that has enabled us to take action, travel now and not have to keep putting it off…  

Here is a graphic showing some of the places we have enjoyed, and just how much was have saved each year since 2013 on accommodation costs.  
And of course we are not alone in the discovery of this travel trend. In fact thousands of people globally, of all nationalities, backgrounds and ages, are using house sitting to travel every single day.  

Many as one-off vacation experiences, many incorporated with other travel modalities, and a handful like us, doing it full-time.  

However despite how it looks on the outset, house sitting is not a free holiday.  

At its essence, house sitting is an exchange of services - you look after someone’s home and their pets (if they have them), and in return you enjoy free accommodation, utilities (usually) and often use of their vehicle.  
It comes with responsibilities, and therefore is not for everyone.

If you like free spirited travel where you can move around constantly, be out all day sightseeing, love taking spontaneous overnight jaunts during your trip, or enjoy clubbing all night, then it may not be for you as a regular form of travel. However that is not to say that house sitting could not be a great addition to your travel or lifestyle experiences, and is still worth exploring.  

Alternatively, if you love slower paced immersion travel into cultures and communities around the world, experiencing the joys of really getting to know the locals, want to have the time to learn a new language, or have a book, project or online business that you would love to get off the ground, and would love to enjoy the pleasure of awesome pets in the mix, then house sitting may well be perfect for you. 
If you have not taken the quiz already we highly recommend you hit the button below and take a few minutes to see if house sitting really is right for you, before you spend any more time reading this page, and being enticed by the valuable benefits of joining the House Sitting Academy! 
What is the House Sitting Academy?
Ten months into our house sitting adventures we started getting lots of home owner enquiries from the platforms checking our availability to house sit for them.

On top of this, the home owners we had already sat for were trying to book us in again.

And y'know what, it really sucked having to say 'no' to the ones that didn't fit our schedule!

So we started to look online for a forum or a place where house sitters could connect and check with each other's availability. There was no where to be found!

We knew there were other great sitters out there, so we started the first ever Facebook group to bring us all together. The group grew quickly and attracted a lot of attention from those who were new to, or wanted to get started in house sitting.

Every single day, we and other members answered dozens of questions about house sitting. And it was from these questions, and the awesome advice and insights shared, that the 'House Sitting Academy' was born.

The Academy online course is home to ALL of the tips and strategies gathered from the collective wisdom of experienced sitters. And more importantly, we now have an 'Inner Circle' of trusted peers to refer to our home owners, providing us all peace of mind (as well as some awesome gigs!).

There are never any guarantees but by creating this complete step-by-step course covering every single element of house sitting, and providing a space for Academy sitters to connect and feel secure in making these personal referrals, we feel our Members get the best possible chance to start house sitting confidently, knowing the best practices, providing exceptional service and therefore in effect, promoting our collective reputation.

And of course, gain the best sits available!

It's important to note that we 
only accept 10 enrolments a month into the Academy 
We do this so we can take the time to genuinely get to know our members and ensure the standard of Academy sitters remains highto create a win-win for both home owners and you as a sitter attempting to secure sits.  

So this is NOT a mass intake course. 

It is an exclusive club of house sitters who love this form of travel, that openly share referral sits from their home owners with other Academy Graduates, who help each other with ongoing advice & promotion, that love meeting up in person where they can, and that ultimately enjoy free global accommodation in some incredible locations while having truly ‘local’ experiences.

If you can see value in proven insider tips, wisdom from experiences sitters, saving on time, money and frustration by having access to various referral sits, and ultimately standing out way above the crowd to home owners, then this network of like-minds is exactly for you. 

We invite you to read below and see how the House Sitting Academy 10-C System & 'Inner-Circle' Club of Private Referrals can help you get started with all you need, and gain sits in places you would love to experience with ease, confidence and certainty.

"The Academy saved us a whopping $10,000 in travel accommodation costs"

"Thank you Nat & Jodie for helping us improve our profile and showing us how to truly value ourselves as great sitters. Since following the advice you and other experienced travelers shared inside the Academy, we calculated that 49% of our first year of full time travel has been with house sitting, saving us a whopping $10,000 in travel accommodation costs (which means more spare change for fun experiences - life is for living!)"

"The Academy saved me $600+ on flights in just days"

"I have to thank you for the information in the Academy course. I started Saturday & used your advice to find a flight from US to Dominica to visit a friend there. In the past we have spent $900 to $1200 to visit each other. Using your information I booked a trip to Dominica for $350. I let my friends in Dominica know & they don't believe me!!! The friend I am visiting is amazed at the flight I found. It is actually a better itinerary than she had in December for $1200. Now I can take three trips for the price of one. Thankyou so much! "  

By taking advantage of these Bonuses you will save yourself Over $150!

"It was the confidence we needed for success"

"We struggled with house sitting right from the start. Our first interview turned out to be a disaster and we nearly thought house sitting wasn’t for us. So we looked for help. The House Sitting Academy & Nat and Jodie's videos really helped and gave us the courage & skills to try again. We didn’t know what to say or how to approach house owners. It seems simple enough just reply to the adverts in the paper or on a house sitting website. But its not quite that easy. Owners are very particular about the people they share their homes with. We learnt a lot in the Academy and applying what we learnt landed our first house sit and many more since."

Frequently Used Excuses
I don’t really have a spare $197 to learn about house sitting  
Then check out our 5 payment plan option as well :)  

And to be honest, if you think about the money you would be spending on accommodation for the rest of the years you go on vacation, compared to spending $197 now to learn how to get free accommodation for the rest of your life... you get the picture! 
This all very interesting but I can find plenty of information on house sitting on blogs & websites
Yes you probably can, but the Academy brings the best of the best strategies that are proven to work, together into one place, saving you massive time, energy & trial and error. Not to mention the value of the badge on your profile pictures & the Private Referral Network, which over time could even save you on some recurring fees to find sits.
I already know this & how to house sit
That's great.  After all house sitting is really not rocket science, but even the most experienced sitters who have joined the Academy have picked up innumerable tips to improve their house sitting experience, and really enjoy being referred for awesome sits that never get listed on the platforms.
I don't have time to do a course
This course is totally self paced and really people do not always go through the entire course in one hit anyway. The course is there to help you setup to present yourself in the best way possible to home owners from the outset, and then is always available to you as a research and reference tool whenever you feel you need it… even on your house sit!  
I am not ready to do this right now
We totally understand. You are welcome to come back and visit when you are ready, but please know some of our additional ongoing trainings focus on living this lifestyle as soon as possible rather than buying into procrastination and putting it off, denying you of experiences you could be having right now.

"We got our first sit with our first application"

"I wanted to give a big shout out to Jodie Burnham and Natalie Smith for their wonderful House Sitting Academy course. We got our first official house sit with our first application and we couldn't have done it without all the valuable information given in their course. We really felt it covered everything you need to get yourself started and and gives you the confidence that you need to move forward." 
Nat & Jodie I know the true value of this course can only be realised by me undertaking the lessons & applying what I learn. Therefore I'm seriously going to give the Academy my very best effort.

I understand that I have a generous 60 days without risk to decide if the Academy is for me, after which time I commit to staying all the way to the end and Graduating. 
Our Guarantee to you... If you undertake the work & still do not secure an assignment within the first 6 months of applying for house sits, we will personally rework your profile until you do!*  
*We will need to see evidence of genuine attempts to apply our teachings in creating a profile & applying for sits during those 6 months
