How It Works

The response to my ad was great. I had a good choice of sitters, all of whom I knew would have done a great job. I have recommended your service to some friends and will certainly use you again. Thanks for the service. Jo

I joined a couple of months ago and already have a job over Easter and a 2 month job in the Riverland later in the year. I have received a number of enquiries from other people asking me to care for their animals and home. I have been astounded at the amount of interest, and it is very encouraging. I did originally join another agency, as I had never joined a housesitting agency before, just housesat by word of mouth. I didn't get any work at all with the other agency, then saw your site, and can't believe the interest. It's a great site to use, with lot's of useful information for the sitter as well. Thank you once again for an excellent service. Vicki

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.
