8th year of responsible, reliable house sitting!

67, Pre-School Teacher/Endorsed Enrolled Nurse

Hello, I'm Jen!

I am an active, single, happy and enthusiastic 67 year old Professional Housesitter/Nurse/Teacher with 54 excellent reviews, ready to take care of your home, pets and garden! Owning a house myself, I am conscious of the care and security needed in keeping a house maintained!

I spent 8 months teaching kindergarten at the English House, Cremona, Italy. in 2018. Prior to that I was house sitting for 18 months with Aussie House Sitters after spending the 2008 - 2016 teaching in Moscow, Russia. I grew up in Beaumaris and lived in Brighton for 20 years. I am single and living with friends on a small farm at Curlewis near Geelong and would love the opportunity to house sit for you!

I love all animals, have ridden horses all my life and had many birds (cockatiels), dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits and fish as pets! I also have recent experience with alpacas and working farm dogs. I will look after your pets as if they were my own. I will walk them cuddle them, feed them and spoil them. I am very experienced with elderly pets who require medication/injections.

I am extremely neat, tidy and clean and will make your home sparkle for your return! I will take care of your garden and am willing to do any other small jobs you may need! I have current experience with large scale gardens, watering systems and ride on mowers. I will happily send you updates and photos. I am fit and active! I occasionally work casually as a carer with Mable.

I was booked continuously from January 2017 - May 2018 and from February 2019 to current day, with many repeat sits and have a current police check, working with children check and CPR First Aid. I am also an Endorsed Enrolled Nurse. I do not smoke and will be quiet and considerate of your neighbours! I drive a small Mazda2.

Fully vaccinated against Covid 19 including 3 booster shots.

I look forward to hearing from you!

We had the pleasure of having Jen as a sitter for our Cavoodle, and we couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. Jen's responsiveness was truly impressive; she replied promptly to my initial inquiry and all subsequent communications, making the entire process smooth and stress-free. What stood out to us was Jen's genuine care for our dog and house. We highly recommend Jen, I can see why many people re book Jen to look after their pets. Thanks again Jen it was an excellent experience and ... MORE
 
STEVE (Kew VIC, Mar 2024 - 1 week 6 nights)
Our experience with Jen was 10/10 on all fronts. Jen is a kind, caring and thoughtful person, thank you so much Jen for house sitting for us! We came home to an immaculately clean house and very happy dogs. The way our dogs are so happy tells us that things went well when we were away. Jen’s communication was excellent. She also took one of our dogs to the dog groomer for us, thank you again Jen. We are so grateful that our little one had so many walks. We would love to have you back!
 
JO (Geelong West VIC, Nov 2023 - 1 week)
We were very grateful to have Jen look after our Larry and house sit for us. Jen left the place super tidy and was great with communication. I would highly recommend Jen :)
 
MARCUS (Grovedale VIC, Nov 2023)
Jen was a great communicator, very patient and caring. It was a difficult housesit with a lot of unexpected challenges and Jen was cool calm and collected all the time and kept the place together very well!
 
GERALDINE (Bundoora VIC, Jun 2023 - 10 days)
Jen was absolutely fantastic. The house was so super clean when we arrived home , I’ve never seen it so sparkling. She was great with our boy Manny. He can be difficult to walk so we were wrapt that Jen could handle him. Would highly recommend Jen.
 
GEMMA (Port Melbourne VIC, Mar 2023 - 1 week 5 days)
Loved looking after Manny, such a lovely boy! Great location, and excellent communication from start to finish!
If you are looking for a house minder who is wonderful, look no further than Jen. Jen is an incredibly responsible, reliable, and trustworthy individual. She took care of our home as if it were her own, ensuring that everything was kept neat and tidy and that all of our plants and pets were well-cared for. She will always be our number one choice for pet and house sitting. Thanks again Jen!
 
ROWENA (Daylesford VIC, Feb 2023 - 2 weeks 2 days - 1 of 4 endorsements from this owner )
We are still in awe of how amazing Jen was taking care of our two dogs and our home. This was the first time using this site and finding a gem like Jen - we are super impressed and most appreciative. We know our dogs were loved and cared for and we came home to our home and garden in spotless condition. Jen really went above and beyond. We would highly recommend Jen and hope we can be lucky enough to have her stay in our home and care for our doggies again in the future. A huge thank you for ... MORE
 
ROSI (Caulfield North VIC, Dec 2022 - 2 weeks 1 day)
From the moment we met Jen Robinson we knew that she was perfect to come into our home and mind our dog, Hussie. Jen was relaxed, competent and comfortable about all aspects of learning about Hussies care and knew what questions to ask to make her stay the best possible. We think that Hussie would probably go and live with Jen, she took such good care and gave her plenty of walks`, even bought her treats. She sent us regular updates and photos and with our permission took Hussie to the Vet ... MORE
 
JAN (East Geelong VIC, Sep 2022 - 4 weeks)
Jen is an exceptional house sitter! We were lucky enough to have her mind our pets and home again and would have her back in a heartbeat. Jen is very attentive to our pets and truly understands how important their care is to us. Our home was immaculate when we returned and fridge stocked with fresh milk. Thanks again Jen.
 
ROWENA (Daylesford VIC, Aug 2022 - 1 week 2 days - 2 of 4 endorsements from this owner )
Jen was absolutely who we wanted to look after our dog. She met with us before, listened to what we wanted and provided the care with no worries. The house was in great condition when we got home. Thanks very much Jen will call on you again

My first time experience in using house sitter and I feel super lucky to have Jen staying and taking care of my dog. Jen is an amazing Housesitters she does more than she requires to. My dog also love her. The house is so clean & tidy. Jen is too good to be true and everyone won't be disappointed to have her staying and taking care of you place and your pet.

KHEMMIKA (Hawthorn East VIC, Apr 2022 - 29 days)
Jen is an outstanding house sitter. During our 3 week holiday she gave us updates on how our fur kids were going and sent pictures. Our pets bonded so well with her that they missed her when she left. The house was immaculately cleaned, lawn mowed and garden cared for. Jen even made sure there was milk in the fridge and home made soup which we really appreciated after a long haul flight. Jen ensured we didn't have to worry about anything at home whilst we were away.
 
ROWENA (Daylesford VIC, Mar 2022 - 3 weeks - 3 of 4 endorsements from this owner )
We have just had the most wonderful experience with Jen and Aussie House Sitters. This was our first time using AHS and thankfully we came across Jen who was willing to come and look after our home and border collie Scout, for 10 days. Jen communicated with us before her stay and we agreed that she should come the night before our early morning departure so she could meet Scout and have the house 'tour'. She was a delightful house guest and we had absolutely no qualms about leaving ... MORE
 
TRACEY (4a Kinane St VIC, Feb 2022 - 10 days)
Jen was considerate in looking after our house, garden and pets. She even helped style a bedroom for an open for inspection! Jen had good communication in arranging the sit. Thanks Jen!
 
JAMES (Geelong West VIC, Dec 2021 - 8 days)
Our first experience with Aussie House sitters and we were fortunate to have Jen mind our place and look after our animals. Jen made this the most positive experience. What an absolute GEM she was. Jen is a confident, capable and caring person. We returned to an immaculate house, happy animals and chicken soup ready for us after a long day travelling. Thanks Jen for being such a legend and giving us confidence to try Aussie House sitters again.
 
CAROLYN (Monbulk VIC, Dec 2021 - 10 days)
I highly recommend booking Jen to look after your home! Jen is a great communicator and sent photos and updates of our pets to ease our minds. I came home to pets that were happy and well cared for and a house was in perfect order. Jen even washed the linen she used. I really appreciate Jen's time and care looking after our place. Thanks so much Jen!!
 
GILLIAN (Braybrook VIC, Dec 2021 - 3 days)
Jen is a super house sitter! Confident and experienced and we had no hesitation in engaging her to look after our 2 small dogs and cat. She is also very lovely and easy going - during her stay we had a powercut for a day due to storms and Jen was very adaptable. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any house sit - only downside is that she will be harder to book once you realise how good she is!
 
ROWENA (Daylesford VIC, Oct 2021 - 1 week 2 days - 4 of 4 endorsements from this owner )
It's always really nice to go away having confidence that your home and pets will be cared for; and this was the case with Jen. Our two pussy cats were well cared for, the plants both indoors and outdoors were watered and the house on our return was very neat and clean. An occasional photo kept us reassured that all was well at home. We hope to be able to avail of Jen's services again in the future. Thanks Jen!
 
SHANE & JUDY (Waurn Ponds VIC, Oct 2021 - 3 days)
Jen was very obliging for this sit, as we had at least 4 changes to our holiday dates due to Covid lockdowns in Melbourne.We had pretty regular contact which was very helpful .She was obliging to our dogs dietary requirements as she is subject to pancreatitis. She cooked food as requested, bought the required tinned food as our online order had not arrived in time and bought fresh veggies.for Coco.(we repaid her of course) We were happy with the condition of our home, very clean and neat, and ...

JIM (Mornington VIC, Aug 2021 - 14 nights)
Jen has just completed a six week house sit for us in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, looking after our little 12 year old dog Abbie and our garden with its numerous pots and plants. Our communications with Jen leading up to the house sit were excellent - prompt and detailed. We could not have been more delighted when we returned home. The house inside was spotless and neat and the garden plants looked wonderful. In a garden which has many deciduous trees, there was not a stray leaf to be ... MORE
 
FRED (Blackburn VIC, Jun 2021 - 6 weeks)
Jen did a brilliant job looking after our puppy, cat and house whilst we were away. We returned to find the house cleaner and in better order than when we left and loved getting Jen's pics and updates on our fur babies. Flexible and a great communicator we would be glad to welcome Jen back to take care of our home and pets again.

DENISE (Frankston South VIC, May 2021 - 6 days)
What a gem!! Jen is a very professional housesitter and takes pride in her placements. Daisy, my 11 month schnoodle puppy adored her! My home was left very clean and tidy - better than when I departed. I have every confidence in Jen and hope to be using her services again. I highly recommend her to anyone requiring a responsible, caring housesitter.
 
ANNETTE (RICHMOND (VIC) VIC, Mar 2021 - 1 month)

KAREN (ENDEAVOUR HILLS VIC, Jan 2021 - one week)
I was delighted to receive a prompt reply to my request for a house sitter. Jen was friendly, helpful and capable, it was a pleasure to have Jen in the house and I had complete confidence in her abilities. This was my first time to have a house sitter and it has been terrific! I would happily recommend Jen to anyone looking for a happy, competent and trustworthy sitter.
 
EILAGH (Wagga Wagga South NSW, Jan 2021 - 6 days)

ANGELA (Curlewis VIC, Dec 2020 - 4 days)
It was an absolute pleasure to house sit for Angela and Mark and their 2 dogs, Fred and Maple. The house was lovely, clean, light and close to all amenities. including many nice walking tracks and parks. The dogs were divine and it was like having 2 friends with me! I highly recommend this house ... MORE

GILLIAN (THORNBURY VIC, Nov 2020 - 7 days)
If you want a great sitter, you definitely need to contact Jen, she kept us up to date with the pets and when we got home our house was spotless. She left us a lovely freshly made banana cake which was a hit. Hope you will sit for us again Jen.
 
DYAN (Wangaratta South VIC, Jul 2020 - 10 Days)
Jen was fantastic! She sent us text message updates whilest we were away, we got back to a house cleaner than what we left it and the dogs were all happy. She even left us soup in the fridge for lunch! Jen is very trustworthy and we will get her back anytime. Thanks again!
 
LOUISE (mortlake VIC, Jun 2020 - 12 days)
Jen looked after our 2 pups and 2 cats over a long weekend. Communication was great and looking at the photos she sent the dogs both seemed to really take to her. We have booked her for 2 more sits already so really glad to have found Jen:)
 
MELISSA (Elwood VIC, Jun 2020 - 4)
We were forced to cut short our time away and Jen was very understanding and accommodating. We would certainly use Jen for a further housesit as we found our home in perfect order. We have a large garden (1.5 acres) which had also been given her attention. Our district has been in drought conditions and Jen left the lawns and gardens in very good order
 
PETER (Wagga Wagga South(Springvale) NSW, Mar 2020 - 12 days)
Jen took great care of our dog,3 cats and house.We would highly recommend Jen as a house sitter.
 
LEANNE (Miners Rest VIC, Mar 2020 - 6 nights)
Jen was a reliable and respectful house sitter. She stayed in touch and made us feel very comfortable in looking after our house and our cat. She kept the house very clean and watered the plants. We would definitely recommend Jen to anyone looking for a house sitter.
 
KATE (Ascot Vale VIC, Feb 2020)
Jen looked after our home and garden brilliantly. During the six weeks we were away she communicated with us often and kept us up to date. She managed to keep our 1 acre garden alive and looking great in 43 degree heat and hot winds as the sit was over the worst time in NSW bushfire history. Our home was clean and a joy to come home too. We have already booked her for a future house sit. We highly recommend Jen.
 
JIM AND VERONICA (Springvale NSW, Dec 2019 - 6 weeks)
Jen was fantastic taking care of our dog and cat as well as looking after our house. She sent photos and took care of everything leaving the house spotless and fitting in with our timing perfectly. We highly recommend Jen if you are looking for a house sitter/ pet minder we will use her again if we can.
 
GARRY (Geelong VIC, Nov 2019 - 10 days)
Jen took wonderful care of our fur baby and our house. We returned to a lovely clean house and would be happy to recommend her for a house and doggy sit!
 
NARISSA (Richmond VIC, Nov 2019 - 11 days)
Thanks Jen as a first timer to engage someone through Aussie Housesitters and it was nice to go away and not have to worry about my cat or my home. The communication and transparency was 10/10
 
SUSAN (Ringwood VIC, Nov 2019 - 3 days)
Jen is a wonderful housesitter. My flat was immaculate when I returned and my cat well cared for. Jen is reliable and responsible and her communication is excellent. I highly recommend her as a housesitter.
 
INEZ (Hawksburn VIC, Nov 2019 - Friday - Sunday)
Jen is just fantastic ! She took such a good care of our pets : 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 lizard, and fish. She sent us photos everyday with lovely comments. We had a few delays and changes for our return flights with very late notifications. She was so understanding and helpful. Although I could tell her only at the very last minute that our return was delayed by 24 hours (she was about to leave the house) she said immediately that it was no problem and she could stay. I can't thank her enough. It was ... MORE
 
MERCEDE (Beaumaris VIC, Jun 2019 - 11 days)
This was our very first time using a Housesitter. We couldn't be happier. It was such an easy experience. Jen is a sensational Housesitter. She is lovely, has excellent communication and took such wonderful care of our pup and our home. We didn't worry the whole time we were away, something we have never been able to do before.
 
BREE (COBRAM VIC, Apr 2019 - 5 days)
Jen looked after our house, animals and garden beautifully! It was so great arriving home to happy animals and a spotless house! We would not hesitate to have her house sit for us again!!
 
ANNA (Wagga Wagga NSW, Mar 2019 - 5 days)
This was our first experience with a house sitter and we were very glad we found Jen. We have a 4 month old very playful kitten who isn't used to new people, however she grew to be very comfortable and happy with Jen. We enjoyed the regular photo updates of our kitten, providing reassurance that she was being looked after. Jen had great communication and was easy to deal with. When we returned we were most impressed how spotlessly clean the house was. Our house has not looked this good since we ... MORE
 
GREG (SOUTH YARRA VIC, Mar 2019)
I knew as soon as I met Jen that my dog and home would be well cared for and I could go away, relax and enjoy my holiday. I was not didappointed. Jen cared for my Toy Poodle, Oscar, who requires medication which he tries to avoid, for almost 3 weeks. On my return I could see Oscar really enjoyed being with Jen and was well looked after. My home was spotless and pot plants were also well cared for.. This is the first time Oscar has been cared for by a sitter, normally he stays with ... MORE
 
CORAL (Wagga Wagga NSW, Feb 2019)
No rating Jen, was fantastic! We left our dogs and house in her hands for 2 weeks. When we got back the house was spotless and the dogs calm and happy, the garden vibrant, couldn't ask for more. Thanks Jen
SHERYL (Fitzroy North VIC, Feb 2018 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating We had 3 amazing weeks away quite simply because Jen took care of our 2 dogs and our cat. We couldn't recommend Jen more and will invite her to help us out again in the future. The animals were calm and happy on our return. The house was immaculate and everything was exactly as we left it. The garden was green and lush and I think the dogs would have actually gone home with Jen they seemed to love her sooo much. Nothing was a problem for Jen including collection of mail from the Post ... MORE
CLAIRE (South Yarra VIC, Jan 2018 - 3 weeks)
No rating Jen looked after my house and Dog and cat over the Christmas break. She was very attentive to the animals and took great care of both pets and house whilst I was away. Keep the house clean and the dog got lots of walks and attention which I'm very greatful to her for. I would recommend Jen and would love for her to sit next time I'm in need of help. Thanks Jen for all your lovely support.
DIANE (Albert Park VIC, Dec 2017 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating We had Jen babysit our much loved dog and our house, she came out to meet us first and we immediately clicked. We have quite an active dog and he was walked everyday and very well looked after. It was lovely to return after a 2 week holiday to a very clean house and more importantly clean sheets!! This was our first ever "housesit" and it was brilliant, thanks so much to Jen she was fabulous x
MELISA (Rye VIC, Oct 2017 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating We recently had Jen come and look after our beloved dog for us while we were away for a week. We could not recommend Jen highly enough - our house was well looked after and left beautifully upon her leaving, our dog was happy spoiled with lots of walks and attention and Jen's communication was fantastic. If you're looking for someone friendly, reliable, mature and trustworthy you can't get any better than Jen. We look forward to seeing her again in the future. Thanks Jen!
SOPHIE (Kew VIC, Sep 2017)
No rating Jen came and looked after our house and dog while we were away for a week. We came home to a very clean house and Very happy dog! I have no hesitation recommending Jen.
TIM (Torquay VIC, Jul 2017 - 5 days)
No rating Jen looked after our house and Lagotto dog during our recent 3 week holiday. She was easy to communicate with and cared for our house and dog in a caring and efficient way. Jen had to mange some unexpected health concerns with Max and was happy to take him to the vet and then follow up with his medication regime while keeping us in the loop. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jen if you are looking for a totally reliable house sitter!
DOROTHY (Lindfield NSW, May 2017)
No rating Jen proved to be a wonderful housesitter and my Patch was spoiled rotten. Jen arrived on time and had all the house lovely and clean for my return. I would recommend her to any future person in need of a great sitter. Regards
JUNE (Wagga Wagga NSW, Mar 2017 - 2 weeks 1 day)

MITTY (St Kilda West VIC, Feb 2017 - 6 days)
No rating Jen was a fantastic sitter and really looked after our precious pup, garden plants and house. Truffy had medication which she administered for us and walked him everyday. He is still a puppy so she had to be vigilant as he gets into everything. We have no hesitation in providing a reference for Jen and would like to thank her very much and will invite her back in the future.
