HomeSIT Cape Town Home and Pet Sitting Services has 10 reliable, experienced and screened sitters who would love to take care of your home and/ pets while you are away.
We have a comprehensive system that ensures that our clients’ pets, property, and belongings are well taken care of, and that our sitters can perform their duties without any glitches.
Each client is sent an information sheet to fill in with all the information we may need during the sit, including the vet’s contact details and other emergency contacts in case they are needed. We almost never have any problems but we’d rather be safe than sorry.
We go beyond just an interview and screening process in selecting our sitters. All sitters are personally known to the initiator and administrator of HomeSIT and as such, we can guarantee your satisfaction with their level of maturity, initiative and responsibility. Most of our sitters are final year students or young professionals.
Our 2016 rates are R185/ night for off peak periods and R205/ night for peak periods. Peak periods include long weekends and school holidays. Peak and off peak rates are reduced by R20 per night for each night after 7 nights (e.g. from the 8th night onwards you would be charged R165/ night in off peak periods)
Longer term sits are available at much reduced rates.
Here’s what some of our clients have to say:
“Dear Paula, I am so impressed with your system. I was particularly impressed in your ability to find a sitter at such short notice. And to do so professionally. The sitter was great. She communicated in pre stay stage, reliable, came on time; and the dogs thought she was good! She left the house tidy (more than when she arrived I suspect!) and I would like to use her again” – Liz Mcdaid, Lynfrae (Claremont)
“Super quick responses from admin – great! Thanks for the outstanding payment reminder just before the sitting commenced. I really appreciated the whatsapp communication from Gokul while we were away to confirm that everything was ok, to let us know when the alarm went off and to send me pictures of our cat (as I requested). When we returned, the house was exactly as we left it – dishes washed, everything in its place.” – Cathy Rode, Observatory
“Charn was an absolute star! She managed a rather difficult two days without power as a result of a damaged cable and coordinated electricians and the City maintenance guys to get it fixed up while we had very limited reception to help out….. And she seems to have done a wonderful job with our puppy. “ – Phillipa King, Claremont
