Trustworthy and capable

61, Health Manager- retired

57, Train driver

Hi - we are Karen & Rob ; a semi - retired couple from Melbournes' Mornington Peninsula. I (Karen) have been retired for 4 years from my management role in Healthcare. I started housesitting through this site and loved it so much that Rob took a break from his job driving trains to join me. We both love housesitting; especially caring for so many beautiful pets in places we haven’t explored before. We are keen to do as much of this as possible in the coming years. Rob is also a Golf Professional and has worked on many golf courses using mowers and heavy machinery. He owned and operated a lawn mowing business for 8 years and so we are also happy for any basic garden-care that you require. We love animals and have had many special pets in our lifetime including some newfound pet friends through housesitting.
We are very trustworthy, capable, clean living, healthy, reliable and caring people who really enjoy housesitting and promise to take good care of your pets and place while you are away.
We hope you will consider us for your housesit and are happy to chat further or provide more information before you make a decision to share your home with us.

Karen and Rob did a wonderful job of looking after our fur babies. Regular communication was lovely. House was left immaculate. Would highly recommend

Karen & Rob are such lovely people who cared for our home and puppy so well. Our home was beautifully clean, plants were looked after and our puppy who can be a little anxious was so happy. As soon as we met them we knew our little girl was going to be in very loving caring hands. Highly recommended these guys. We would have them back anytime.

Wonderful to be able to relax on holidays knowing Karen and Rob are taking care of our property and beloved dog Ella. Getting text updates and photos/videos is a wonderful bonus. Highly recommend this lovely couple!

Karen looked after our home and dogs, Ollie and Pippin for a second time. She is so kind and loving with our fur babies and was fabulous at communicating with us and giving us updates about the dogs. We can't wait for her to come again and highly recommend her to others for house sits.

Karen was an amazing house sitter and an absolutely lovely person to boot 🥰 Our house was immaculate when we returned. Communication was regular (when necessary - due to an ongoing fridge issue). We couldn’t recommend Karen highly enough and we look forward to having Karen (& Rob) to house sit for us in the future. If they’re available….they are in high demand 😘

Too funny - and thank you !!
Karen was absolutely amazing. The communication was excellent and she cared for our boy like he was her own. We highly recommend
STEPHANIE (Taree NSW, Feb 2023 - 1 week 2 days)
Thank you so much for your kind words Stephanie
We are so thankful that we chose to contact Karen and Rob to look after our little Maddie while on holidays. From the moment we met them, they were kind and warm, and Maddie took to them straight off the bat. They sent us a couple of updates while we were away, but we were able to enjoy our time away knowing that Maddie was completely at home and taken care of - to the point we actually wondered if Maddie would want us back! There was not a thing out of place upon our return, and they even had ... MORE

Karen and Rob have been truly wonderful house sitters. They listened and loved Dave and looked after the house beautifully too. We were blessed to have had them stay and would highly recommend them.
KAREN (Frenchs Forest East NSW, Sep 2022 - 3-4 weeks)
Thank you kind people!! Give Dave a hug from us
Karen and Rob were fantastic house and dog sitters. They looked after our dogs and home beautifully. We felt very comfortable leaving our dogs Ollie and Pippin in their very capable hands and it made our holiday more enjoyable knowing they were being loved and looked after so well. They communicated brilliantly with us before, during and after the sit. They even sent snaps & videos of our pooches looking very relaxed and happy while we were away. We came home to a spotless home and garden and ... MORE

Thank you both. It was absolutely our pleasure !!
We felt privileged to have found Karen and Rob Lovely couple, very reliable and caring. They kept us informed of mail and other development. They fitted very well into our local community We would have no hesitation in recommending them for similar sits John and Geraldine
JOHN (HOWLONG NSW, Apr 2022 - 2 months 1 week)
Karen and Rob are outstanding house sitters. They sat for us twice in the last 2 months and we were astounded by both their reliability and their competence. Due to the recent floods, they were without both power and water for several days, yet they rose to the occasion nonetheless and managed without complaint. Karen and Rob are very warm and loving people who treated our cocker spaniel Joey as if she was their own. She absolutely loved them both and even though she required daily ... MORE

Our thanks once again !!
I can't speak highly enough of Karen and Rob. Pleasant, friendly and professional, our home was well cared for and our dog Ella was sad to see them go! Karen sent us updates so that we could relax knowing everything was fine in our absence. Karen went out of her way to collect mail from the post office, and freeze excess fruit from our vegie garden for us. Five star house sitters who are welcome back anytime!
SUE (Tarrawingee VIC, Dec 2021 - 1 week 6 days - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
Thank you Sue and Rob for the great review and fantastic time we spent with Ella- it was our pleasure to meet you both and sit for you!!
Karen was a wonderful sitter for our dog Koko. She took great care of Koko in every respect. Koko could not have been happier. Karen sent us messages and photos of Koko regularly and left our house spotless. I highly recommend Karen and am happy to provide references for her.
PRISCILLA (SORRENTO VIC, Aug 2021 - 1 week)
You are SO lovely!! Thankyou for my review Very much appreciated
Karen was 10 out of 10 on our first venture into house sit. From the moment we met I knew our property and doggies would be in great hands. She left the house cleaner than when she arrived. Dogs loved her and very happy and healthy. The communication before the sit and during was terrific.We highly recommend Karen as a house sitter. She is a lovely caring person.
