Dear Homeowner,

Do you need a trustworthy housesitter to care for your home, pets and other property needs, and protect your valuables while you’re gone?

The Caretaker Gazette can assist you. This unique newsletter brings landowners and qualified housesitters together. Landowners can run advertisements for Housesitters, Property Caretakers, Property Managers, and similar positions in The Caretaker Gazette, and we only charge $0.65/word to publish your ad. Please let us help you find the best house sitter to fulfill your property caretaking needs. We have subscribers in all 50 states, so we are more than likely to have trustworthy people available to housesit right in your area.

Published since 1983, The Caretaker Gazette is a bi-monthly newsletter that features current housesitting assignments, and offers landowners many benefits:

The Caretaker Gazette is the only publication dedicated to the property caretaking field. In response to our national advertising and the media attention we've received, a wide range of experienced people subscribe to the Gazette. Your ad will be seen by experienced and reliable housesitters, who have excellent references. Thousands of property owners have told us that they've found their best house sitters through their ad in The Caretaker Gazette.

You can remain confidential, if you wish, and use The Caretaker Gazette address for all advertising responses, which we will promptly forward to you. (We need to charge $15 for this additional service.)

If you decide that you do not want us to run your ad, you should subscribe to The Caretaker Gazette to find great housesitters. You'll find dozens of classified ads from responsible people seeking housesitting positions. Many landowners have found dependable housesitters directly from our Situations-Wanted section.

Please read what other property owners have said about The Caretaker Gazette service:

"I just paid $55 to run my housesitter ad in the local newspaper and received many responses, but none of them were interested in a long-term housesitting assignment. My house sitter ad in the Gazette brought seven great responses so far, from which I just found a good person to housesit my ranch for me while I’m away. Thanks for your service." --J. L., Stroud, OK

"I've found a housesitter so my ad can be deleted from the next issue of The Caretaker Gazette. I've had many wonderful responses and felt so bad to tell some of the applicants the position was filled. It's great to have such a forum for searching for good help." --M.S., St. Augustine, Florida

"Would you believe we got fewer responses from our ad in The Caretaker Gazette, but found the best house sitter we've ever had! Thanks again." --S.B., Gunnison, Colorado

"I cannot say enough for the marvelous service you provide. The housesitter ad you placed for me brought an excellent response, resulting in a very satisfactory placement. I prefer to hire folks from the Gazette, rather than local people. I've had fewer problems this way." --P.I., Napa, California



Dear Housesitter,

If you've ever imagined enjoying rent-free living as a housesitter for a vacation property in the Rocky Mountains, a villa on a Caribbean island, an estate in Australia, or just about any other geographic area, you'll want to use The Caretaker Gazette. The Gazette features opportunities for property caretakers, housesitters and similar positions. We have been helping people find these unique property caretaking positions for the past 31 years. Each year, our subscribers receive 1,000+ housesitting and property caretaking openings across the U.S. and abroad.

Housesitting enables you to transform your life for the better. House sitters find that being away from stress and other problems enables them to grow spiritually and develop a healthier overall life-perspective. And, think of all the money you can save by living rent-free.

Published since 1983, The Caretaker Gazette is still the only publication in the world dedicated to finding and listing house sitting opportunities, worldwide. Subscribers receive many benefits, including:

Additional caretaking and housesitting listings. The Gazette has attracted media attention in print, radio and TV. These appearances have gotten many property owners to advertise one of their properties in the Gazette. Our websites, and are also generating additional housesitting and caretaking assignments to be listed in future issues of The Caretaker Gazette.

Exclusive housesitting opportunities. Many landowners in need of housesitters advertise only in The Caretaker Gazette. You won't find these opportunities anywhere else.

Expanded variety. We have housesitting opportunities on estates, mansions, farms, ranches, nature preserves, camps, lodges and islands. Wherever there's land, there's a potential housesitting assignment.

Many of our subscribers have made positive changes to their lifestyles by becoming housesitters. Here's what some of them have said about The Caretaker Gazette:
