We used your services for the first time by placing an ad on your site for house sitters yesterday. We had previously booked house sitters through a mutual friend but they then cancelled. We did not think we would be able to take our planned holiday but then you came to the rescue. In less than 24 hours we found house sitters and are delighted with your service. We will most definitely be using you again when the need arises. We heartily recommend your service to anybody needing a house sitter. Once again, many thanks. Faye

HOUSE SITTING AROUND WESTERN AUSTRALIA (WA)

While much of Western Australia is empty desert land there are still various places to go for house sitting. These areas include cities like Perth and Kalgoorlie.




Perth is home to nearly three quarters of the people living in Western Australia. As a result this is the best place to go for house and pet sitting jobs. Although it is highly isolated from other cities it is home to various attractions. The Perth Concert Hall is a popular site for concerts and the consistently warm climate of Perth makes it popular for outdoor sports activities throughout the entire year.

Kalgoorlie, which is nearly six hundred kilometres east of Perth, is another city to check out. Kalgoorlie is popular among house sitters for its many suburbs that feature historic high class homes including Mullingar, Lamington, Golden Grove and Boulder.




The northern part of the state is home to the town of Karratha. More new homes have been built in recent years in Karratha to help with replacing old residential centres near industrial areas.

No matter where you go for house sitting in Western Australia you should be aware of the exceptional distances between cities in the state. For example, the distance between Kalgoorlie and Adelaide is more than 1,300 kilometres. It is best to look into air travel options if you are going to go somewhere in Western Australia for house sitting.

 
*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.
