Christine and Bob your friendly reliable sitters


Retired Steel Fabricator

Hi, We are Christine and Bob, your friendly reliable sitters.
We are a Non-Smoking South Australian couple who enjoy travelling this wonderful country in our Caravan. We love looking after domestic pets and gardens as we do miss not having either during our travels.
We have been home owners, so we know how to respect and care for your property and possessions.
We are more suited to long term sits varying from 1 month to as long as you need to be away. Short term sits are also welcome.
Our 22ft caravan must fit on your property.
Please check out our reviews written by home owners we have previously sat for.
We are very proud of our reviews, and have formed some wonderful friendships in the meantime.
Thank you for taking the time to view our profile, and we hope we can be of service to you soon..
Note: We are both COVID 19 vaccinated, and have had 2 Booster shots.
Kind Regards
Christine and Bob

AMAZING house sitters, Chris and Bob were absolutely fantastic, they communicated with us, took great care of our home and dog, our dog is missing her other humans already. Came home to a wonderfully cleaned house inside and outside. Would definitely recommend them to anyone for a short or long stay house sitting.

Bob and Chris were excellent house sitters. The garden, lawn and veggie garden was maintained extremely well with nothing for us to do when we got home. Bob left us some home made relish that he made from our tomatoes. Charlie, our border collie will miss them most of all. They took him for many walks and paid him a lot of attention. I would recommend them highly to look after our place again and anybody else’s house
MEGAN (Sevenhill SA, Jan 2024 - 1 week 3 nights)
Chris and Bob house sat for 9 weeks Nov-Jan 2024. They took exceptional care of our 3 beloved dogs with daily walks, home cooked meals and lots of cuddles! Bob has a green thumb, the garden is looking better than what I had left it; and that was after storms and heat waves!! We were kept up to date regularly while we were on holiday. I only hope that Chris and Bob are available to house sit every time I go on holiday.... because they are the best house sitters we have had in 20 years!
ROBYN (Kapunda SA, Nov 2023 - 2 months 1 week)
Amazing! They left the house immaculate and had even done a few random jobs around the property, like staking up a sapling that was falling over. Fish, dogs and horses all loved and cared for, with a few photos so I didn't miss my puppies too much. I was absolutely comfortable that the place was being well cared for and will be phoning Christine and Bob next time we go on holiday. Great experience and wonderful house sitters.

Bob and Christine are a homeowners dream- caring and pets pampered, even Duck became friendly! We could not recommend them highly enough and would be very happy to see them come through our gateway again. They felt like friends from way back. Thank you Chris and Bob
LEIGH AND ELAINE (Port Lincoln SA, Oct 2022 - 6 days)
Bob and Christine are amazing house and pet sitters. On our return we found our house and garden were immaculate. Our dog Indi was pleased to see us but was relaxed and had obviously been looked after very well. While we were away Bob and Christine kept in contact with us and sent us photo's of Indi. I cannot recommend them highly enough, they're a lovely couple and wonderful house sitters.
JO (Thurgoona NSW, Mar 2022 - 2 weeks 5 days)
Bob and Christine did a wonderful job looking after our property. It was nice to come home and find the garden still alive with a freshly mowed lawn and the chooks healthy and happy to see us.
STEVE (Berri SA, Feb 2021 - 4 weeks)
Thankyou Steve and Vi for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to housesit for you.
The first time we met Christine and Bob it was like we had known them for 20yrs. We couldnt have asked for a more suitible couple to look after our garden,house and especially our dog rigby, cat crusier and pet lambs izzy and maggie. We knew straight away they would be well looked after. We came home to a home made lasagne (thankyou so much christine, so yummy) . Bob had pruned our trees and put a new jocky wheel on our trailer. Thankyou so much. Highly recommend, and hopefully they dont get ... MORE

The opportunity came up for Chris and Bob to look after our place and our pooches for a couple of months in late 2019 (prior to the 3 month sit we already had booked in for 2020) and we can't thank them enough for everything they did to look after our place and our dogs while we were away. Our dogs just love them, and every time I turn around I notice something else that has been done, or fixed up - I think they do a better job of looking after everything than we do! Highly recommended ... MORE
MEGAN (Buxton VIC, Apr 2020 - 2 months)
Thankyou for your wonderful review Megan and Marty. It was a real pleasure. Looking forward to our 3 month sit with your gorgeous pooches in 2020.
Chris and Bob were absolutely wonderful. I came home to a house cleaner than its ever been and a garden with so many things done to improve it that I thought I had employed a handyman (or got married again). I would recommend them to anyone. My Lovely old dog Misty must have really become attached to them as she was very sad they had gone.
GAIL (Beechworth VIC, Mar 2020 - 3 weeks)
Thankyou Gail for your lovely review. It was a real pleasure sitting for you and we miss beautiful Misty..Bless her and those big brown eyes.. Take Care.
Chris and Bob were so brilliant. They did a heap of odd jobs around the house that has made my wife want to adopt them. They were such beautiful people and we would love to give them our highest possible recommendation. I hope they can sit for us again in the future.
TONY (Mount Helen VIC, Feb 2020 - 2 weeks)
Thankyou Tony and Christine for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to look after Lucy and Prestie.
We would highly recommend Christine and Bob as house sitters. They looked after our dog and garden for us while we were away for 5 weeks. Lovely people, They took great care of our dog, lots of walks and lots of treats - they showed a great understanding to his needs. He clearly misses them!!! Bob transformed our garden and we will be forever grateful for the work he did in and around our home. He kept everything alive despite 40-45 degree temps. We had regular updates while we were away. ... MORE
JANN (Bendigo VIC, Dec 2019 - 5 weeks)
We have just completed our first Housesitters experience and could not be happier. Christine and Bob have been amazing. We worried about our older cat who can become anxious however we came home to her Happy Healthy and not at all concerned that we had left her. Christine and Bob have left our property in better condition than when we left and our yard is nice and green. They are very professional and we are super appreciative. We were able to go on holidays without any concerns and received ... MORE
LEONI AND COLIN (Kadina SA, Nov 2018 - 4 months)
Thankyou for your wonderful review. It was a real pleasure looking after your home, garden, chooks and sweet Willow.. I miss her already. Friends for life
Bob and Chris were fantastic On arriving home our house and garden were both as clean and tidy if not tidier then when we left them 8 weeks earlier and I'm sure our dog is missing them Would recommend Bob and Chris as house sitters to anybody
GRANT (Quorn SA, Sep 2018 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Bob and Christine would have to be the best sitters you could wish for. Dog carers, handy man, kind caring couple. House kept immaculate, we would certainly recommend them to anyone.
MALCOLM (Auburn SA, Jun 2018 - 1 month 3 weeks)
Thank you for your great review
What an amazing couple you are -I couldn't have wished for anyone better to mind my house & my dog . Milo was so content that I think she was sorry when I took over her care! And my house & garden have never looked so good. In fact I'm planning on going away every year so that you can work your magic on it again. You can be sure I am recommending you to all my friends. Just remember I come first!!!! All the best to you. Cheers Jill

Green garden!

Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
