The South Australia capital of Adelaide is home to many great things. If you are looking into house sitting for people in the Adelaide area it helps to check out some great options around the city.

If you are looking to take care of a house near the beach you should look into western neighbourhoods that are near the Gulf St. Vincent. Henley Beach and West Beach are two popular neighbourhoods near the Gulf.

If you want to work in a neighbourhood that is laid back you should check out the Prospect suburb. Many homes in this area, particularly in the Thorngate area, are especially luxurious.

When looking for places for house sitting in Adelaide it helps to check out homes that are near Adelaide Metro stations. These stations are ones that offer service to downtown Adelaide and various outlying suburbs through its eight rail lines.

Don’t forget to look for house and pet sitting openings during some of the times of the year when festivals take place. The Adelaide Festival of Arts, which happens in March of every even numbered year, is a popular event to check out and can be great for you to see if you are house sitting in the area during that time.

*FREE: House sitting is usually free, for both sitter and house owner, although this is completely up to the individuals. There are usually some costs that need to be covered by either the sitter or the house owner e.g. electricity, phone usage, vet fees etc. How these costs are handled needs to be agreed before the sit begins. House sitters pay a single annual membership fee, while house owners pay nothing to advertise their house or to contact sitters.
