Apart from craigslist does anyone have a recommendation for where I could look for house-sitting opportunities in Portland? Google search returned a very diverse mix of free/paid subscription sites and none were too useful.

Ah, you do know there is high unemployment in Portland?
Any house-sitting type of thing would be filled very early and quickly I would guess. Word of mouth and all.

There are people who are bonded with many references that do this type of thing and rightly so. With all the many homeless people in the area, it would be difficult to determine who could be trusted. I also would imagine there would not be too many opportunities since I think most people have neighbors or friends watch their houses when they go on vacation.
