Housesitting in Mexico

The most unique and perhaps the least known way to find accommodations around the world is to do some house sitting.

There are many house-sitting websites out there such as or But what if you’re just looking for house-sitting opportunities in Mexico?

That’s where you need a website like

A house sitting assignment in San Miguel de Allende for Christmas.

In my latest Live Stream with Alexandra Gordon- the owner of House Sit Mexico, we talked all about what house-sitting is, what makes different and unique, how to create the perfect profile, and what you can expect when you house-sit for someone.

House Sitting has a lot of benefits! Here are some of the top ones:

  • SITTERS sit for free in exchange for a free place to stay, which means they can have the experience of what it’s really like to live in Mexico!  For HOMEOWNERS and renters in Mexico, having the opportunity to review and select responsible sitters offers new freedom and flexibility to travel.
  • Many house sits in Mexico are unique and beautiful homes in authentic Mexican neighborhoods. You get the real feel of what it’s like to live in Mexico.
  • Unlike a small hotel room, you usually get to stay at entire place to spread out in.
  • Your pets will be taken care of when you have someone house-sit.
  • You get to interact with the owner’s pets- If you’re an animal lover, you’ll love being able to care for a cute cat or dog while you stay in a unique home.
  • While you are scoping out different areas of Mexico for retirement, house sitting gives you a chance to get a feel for the area in an authentic Mexican home. You won’t get the same experience by staying at a hotel.
  • Some places will even include a car with the house-sitting assignment. This gives you the ultimate chance to keep your costs low while you scope out the area!
  • Utilities and even some food are included. Remember you are actually staying in someone’s lived-in home.

Wondering what I mean when I say unique places you can stay at? Take a look at an example house-sitting assignment below that is available for 2 weeks in San Miguel de Allende.

      Hi Sue
      sorry but there isn’t any indication of what article you are referring to?

    What happens if the owner wants the sitter out right away? Can they legally change a six month stay to a one month stay without notice? What happens in such a case?

      Great question- contact House Sit Mexico for the answer
