We just returned from a vacation. An employee/friend house-sat for use. She lived in our home and fed the horses morning and evening for a week. We stocked food per her liking and she says she had a nice vacation (she used the fireplace, sauna, etc).
I never nailed down how much she expected to be paid. I asked my gf and she said $350. Thinking about it, that would be $50 a day. Sounded good, so I gave the house-sitter a thank you card with $350 in it.
Turns out my gf hadn’t really thought about it. She meant tree-fiddy as a South Park reference!
Anyway, what is the going rate? I’m hoping to use her services in the future.
