I have finalized a house sitter through your service.  The process took only a few days, so thanks, I'm now able to go overseas knowing the house is looked after and the dog is fed and happy. Robyn

We would like you to know that we are delighted with the Aussie House Sitters website. We signed up as house sitters on your site in October of this year. Within an hour of joining we applied for a house sit and were short listed, and we have been appointed. The first day we appeared on the site we received a phone call enquiry, and in the next couple of days received a couple more enquiries by phone. We have had more approaches from house owners through your site in the last three months than we have had from the other sites over a period of two years. We think you are doing a great job! Daniel and Jeanie

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.
