Robyn Jones-Finlay

68, Retired Secondary Teacher

Hello, my name is Robyn and I am a recently retired secondary teacher of 43 years. Fit, healthy, financially secure, single female in my 60's. Very house and yard proud. I enjoy caring for animals and tending to their needs with the intention to alleviate their separation anxiety. I have completed numerous housesits for family and friends and thought I would join Aussie Housesitters for diverse experiences in house-sitting, as the opportunity arises.My previous housesits have been in Tamworth, Mona Vale, Rathmines, Wangi, Paterson , Eleebana, Marks Point, and Ashtonfield. I was house-sitter in Tamworth for a teacher/colleague for 2 and 3 week periods over the school holidays caring for dogs,a cat , chickens and geese. I was housesitter for my sister in Darley St Mona vale when she travelled to the UK for 2 months, looking after her townhouse and little dog, Milly.My main housesit presently is in Paterson, on a 100 acre farm, looking after 2 horses,2 dogs, 6 chickens and checking on cattle numbers for up to 10 days at a time. I am trustworthy, responsible, reliable, honest and friendly. I am happy to spend most of my day and night in the care of the family pets as I am familiar with the areas in which I do housesits and don't need to be spending time sight-seeing. I have just completed a nine day housesit in Monavale, caring for 2 beautiful labradors whilst maintaining the home responsibilities.This was through the AussieHousesitters platform.

Robyn is a wonderful housesitter! She looked after my two dogs and house for over a week and was fantastic. Her communication is great and she kept in touch with updates while I was away. When I got home my house was spotless and the dogs very happy. I wouldn't hesitate to ask Robyn to house sit again and highly recommend her to anyone.

Robyn is a next level house-sitter, from making the time to meet us in person before, reviewing my notes and triple checking she was clear on what was needed. Her communication was fabulous, she gave our plants and extra watering because it was unseasonably warm. Our cat & fish were well taken care of and house was left spotless with Robyn taking pictures and sending them to us. We would happily have her house sit for us again. We are eternally grateful

Robyn is an absolutely fantastic sitter and I recommend her to anyone. From the outset, Robyn's communication was clear, polite and punctual and she made it her priority to ensure our two boisterous beagles were cared for and loved. During the stay, Robyn's phone was having issues, but when we contacted her, she was in the process of getting it fixed, ASAP, so she could send us updates and ensure we did not worry too much. She walked, fed, loved and cared for our girls for nearly two weeks and ... MORE

**Robyn is a 100/100 House sitter** We had the privilege of Robyn looking after our family home and our beautiful fur baby Chad for the 2nd time. Robyn is extremely respectful of your home and is extremely caring and goes beyond for your pets while in her care. I would highly recommend Robyn to EVERYONE!!!! Chad can't wait to have Robyn look after him again as she spoils him rotten with lots of cuddles on the lounge and lovely walks around our estate. As a business owner we don't get ... MORE

We cannot thank Robyn enough! Our family is so grateful to have found Robyn. Robyn looked after Chad for 3 days. This was our 2nd ever house sit experience. From the very beginning Robyn made us feel so comfortable & Chad was in safe hands. Robyn kept in contact throughout our time away with photos and updates of Chad which we appreciated and put our minds at ease. Robyn respected our home and we returned to a clean, tidy house and a very HAPPY well-cared for dog. Robyn is very ... MORE

After my initial meeting with Robyn I was extremely happy and felt very comfortable that she was going to look after my 2 labradors and my home and I certainly wasn't disappointed. I arrived home to 2 very happy dogs and my home was immaculate. I can't recommend Robyn highly enough.
