In this article, I’ll tell you how to become a house sitter in Vietnam. I recently spent 6 weeks house sitting in Ho Chi Minh City and loved my time there. I enjoyed it so much, that I’ve already booked to return.

I currently have over thirty 5-star reviews for house sitting around the world and I want to pass on all my knowledge and experience. So, if you’re asking yourself ‘How do I become a house sitter in Vietnam?’, all the information you need is right here.

What is a House Sitter?

Essentially, a house sitter is someone who takes care of another person’s home for a set period. Usually, while the host family is away on vacation. It’s a mutually beneficial arrangement that ensures the property remains safe and secure, and the sitter receives free accommodation in a local, homely setting.

I started building my house sitting profile over 5 years ago and now have dozens of countries and cities under my belt. I find that the experience feels more like living somewhere as opposed to simply passing through, which I love. I’ve met some amazing people along the way and have open invites for return visits to many of my previous stays.

Sits can range from a 1-night stay to months in length. My longest sit to date was in Durham, North Carolina in the summer of 2023, where I stayed for 2.5 months looking after a beautiful property.
