Jane & Bob Benson



Waiting for Covid-19 to sort itself out.

Jane and I (Bob) are a non smoking married for 32 years couple who are travelling around Australia House/Pet sitting or doing Volunteer duties.
We have a 7m caravan (including drawbar) and are pet lovers and would be happy to sit yours.

We are in Victoria at the moment waiting out the Pandemic

No rating Jane and Bob are very experienced housesitters. Not only was our house fabulously cleaned and looking good but they had ensured that it was warm and toasty. Very important when you have left 28 degrees to come home to about 13. They also were wonderful with our dog. He was really spoiled with lots of cuddles and treats. I'm sure he is missing them dearly. I'd have no hesitation in recommending them or requesting them again.

Bob and Jane did a terrific job and kept our place spick and span. Tiggah can be a finicky cat but they won him over and he adopted them as surrogate parents :-) Strongly recommend Bob and Jane to anyone looking for a sitter.

Bob & Jane were wonderful! My fur babies were well cared for & very happy. My house was sparkling clean. Would have them back happily! Thanks guys!
YVONNE (Leopold VIC, Nov 2019 - 4 days)
Bob and Jane are fantastic fur and house sitters. They sent photos of all our dogs and cats to us while we travelled which was fantastic. The dogs enjoyed their daily walks. Our house was lovely and clean on our return. Bob meet us after our late night return and gave us an update on everything. We would recommend them to anyone for a short or long term house sit.

REBECCA (Clunes VIC, Nov 2019 - One week)
We are absolutely thrilled with the care given to our pets, home and garden whilst we were away. Our pets are well, settled and very content; in fact, more so than when we left. Jane has a way with animals which is amazing. They certainly feel the love. Our old dog Spud has blossomed under their care and his barking issue has ceased! We came home to a sparkling clean home to be greeting by the lovely Jane and Bob. We couldn't be happier and would be delighted to welcome them to our home if they ... MORE

Bob and Jane are excellent, experienced house-sitters who cared for our dogs and chicken as if they were their own. It was our first experience with house-sitters and we left feeling confident and reassured. We arrived home to happy, healthy fur babies and a lovely clean home. We can highly recommend Jane and Bob and would love to have back when next away. Thank you so much, it was a pleasure to meet you both, best of luck on your travels until we meet again. Happy to refer any time.
JULEE (Maryborough VIC, Jun 2019 - 5 weeks)
Bob and Jane did a fantastic job looking after our home but more importantly looking after our elderly pet dog. I couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thanks again for looking after our home and beautiful old girl Maisy.
COLLEEN (Bacchus Marsh VIC, May 2019 - 4 weeks)
Was a pleasure meeting Bob and Jane. My animal family were cared for beyond expectation, great communicators. Would have them back anytime.
RHEA (Linton VIC, Jan 2019 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Robert and Jane came to look after our home and, more particularly, our cats and chook, while we were away. We could not have been more delighted in the way they cared for our "girls" and our home. This was the first time I have been away and been completely confident that our pets were in good hands. Indeed when we arrived home the "girls" had been so spoilt they weren't really interested that we were back!! Robert and Jane were so easy to communicate with and were totally professional ... MORE

Jane and Bob were excellent housesitters, very considerate, communicative & responsible. They took great care of our cat & dog including feeding, exercise & lots of tlc. Both animals settled well with them & we're in excellent health on our return. We would not hesitate to recommend Jane & Bob for your next housesitters, & we would happily engage them again if the need arose. Happy to provide references if needed. Many thanks Bob & Jane, Jill & David, Sunbury.
JILL (Sunbury VIC, Sep 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating Jane and Bob will be my first go-to, to care for my critters any other time I want to wander off in future ... always contactable, animals constantly monitored, and house left spotless. My neighbours also appreciated their friendly presence. Likewise the cat, who made the most of all the attention. Thankyou for the fine animal whispering!!
JEAN (Korumburra VIC, Oct 2017 - 4 weeks)
No rating So happy to have had Jane and Bob house sit for us.. After meeting them beforehand we knew that there wouldn't be a problem. They genuinely love house sitting and certainly looked after our dog Sweep as if she was their own. I would highly recommend them and hope at some time to be able to have them sit for us again
ELLY (Sydenham VIC, Oct 2017 - 2 weeks)
No rating Jane and Bob looked after our 2 dogs, chooks and beloved cat for 13 weeks this year . We arrived home to find our animals very happy and well cared for. The dogs actually seemed sad when they left ! Our house was also as we left it . Thankyou both for looking after our beloved animals whilst we were away .
MELISSA (Ballarat VIC, Jul 2017 - 3 months 1 week)
No rating Again Aussie House Sitters has found us a truly fantastic house sitting match! My partner and I have been thoroughly delighted to have Bob and Jane house sit for us over the past 6 weeks. They are scrupulously honest, highly capable and very thoughtful. No detail or request was too small or too tedious for Bob and Jane to take on. Every detail of our instructions was followed to the letter. This couple came to us with excellent communication skills, a great deal of prior house ... MORE

No rating Bob&Jane left our home in a spotless condition,and as a result we are already planning our next holiday. We will be disappointed if we can't have them back.(and so will our puppies )Bob &Jane come highly recommended.
IAN&CORAL (Lake Boga VIC, Sep 2016 - 4 weeks)
No rating Bob & Jane looked after our 3 beagles and 3 alpacas from 22/12 - 13/1. We could not have been happier. The animals were well cared for and the house was spotless when we came back.We would certainly love them to housesit again for us one day if the opportunity arose.
SHARON (Sunbury VIC, Dec 2015)
No rating What a wonderful couple and what a great job they did. Totally amazing. Hope we can get them again
JULIE (Barmera SA, Oct 2015 - 2 months 1 week)
No rating Bob and Jane were great, I am so grateful I got such great house sitters to look after my Tilly (kelpie cross). She was very well looked after, they even took her to her training each week. They looked after the house and garden perfectly. They were very professional and knew exactly what to do even when I didn't. I would highly recommend them to others.
ANGELA (Alice Springs, May 2015)
No rating A huge thank you to Jane and Bob for caring for our house from early January to March. Was great to come home to a spotless house and a well maintained yard. Margaret was particularly impressed there were no cobwebs to clear away. Unfortunately they are not available for our next trip away, they are already booked out. I am willing to provide a positive referral to anyone considering having this couple sit there home.
EDDY (Mar 2015)
No rating Bob and Jane were great house sitters. Firstly when our plans changed to leave a week earlier, they were really flexible and able to come a week earlier to look after our property and dog. When we returned our house was cleaner and more organised than when we left. Such a lovely treat to come home after so long to such a clean home. They were great at keeping us up to date whilst away, and we would have them back to Housesit again anytime.
JUSTINE (Herbert, NT, Mar 2015)
No rating Bob and Jane were great, they are a very nice couple who looked after our house and animals better than anyone could ask for. the surprising thing was how quickly our fur babies took to them. I would recommend Bob and Jane to anyone thinking of using them and we are happy to provide a reference when ever they require. All the best for your future travels. Thanks Ian, Teresa, Crystal, Terra, Luna, Loki, Harry, Taj Tigerlilly, Merlin and the fish.
IAN (Bakewell, NT, Jan 2015 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating To Bob & Jane Thank you so much for looking after our home & Lucky for nearly 6 weeks. It was wonderful to arrive home and see that all had been tendered beautifully. I would love to think that you would be available next time we go away. Lucky would too!! Kind regards Bonnie, Dave & Lucky!
BRONWYN (BONNIE) (Humpty Doo, NT, Nov 2014 - 4 weeks)
No rating We had Bob and Jane house sit for us and would, without a doubt in our minds, highly recommend them to anyone! Our pets have been loved and cared for as if they were their own, our house is cleaner then when we left and the gardens are green! Extremely happy, we even asked them back for our next holiday!
