Perfect Kiwi House Sitters

60, Retired Builder

60, Retired Nurse

Hi Guys.
.We are two recently retired Kiwi's (ex builder and nurse) who usually spend our Winters in Australia, mostly in Queensland, to escape the South island cold weather! We're keen to see as much of NZ as possible, while we are unable to travel overseas, and enjoy seeing places through the eyes of a "resident", from a home-base , rather than a tourist one.
We have always loved and had pets (our last Border Collie died a couple of years ago). We are into fitness and have both done 2 half- marathon runs last year so we'd like to maintain our fitness with dog-walking, but enjoy cats too. We love gardening & would totally respect & keep your house clean. We have been moteliers in the past so we know how to clean! Non smokers, both have police clearances and reviews on this site. Very reliable.
Lets talk!
Pete & Grace.

The perfect sitters. We came home to an immaculately clean house and a very happy dog. They even left us dinner! They were very easy to communicate with too. Couldn't recommend Pete and Grace more highly.

Grace and Pete provided a great house and pet sitting service for us while we were away recently. Communication - we were not able to meet Grace and Pete in person before the sit; however, we spoke on the phone and Grace sounded lovely. I would personally have liked more updates while we were away and even a photo or two of our furry and feathery babies. Grace and Pete left the house very clean and tidy and washed the sheets we had taken off our bed before we went away. They even left us a ... MORE

You couldn't ask for better house sitters than Pete and Grace. They looked after our home and pets like their own. On our arrival home, the house was immaculate, even sheets and towels washed. ( I'd better not add -a lasagne waiting for us). Our border collie was cleaner than when when we left, and seemed happy and content. I would highly recommend Pete and Grace and we hope to have them house sit our home again. Everything is 5 stars about this couple. You'd be lucky if they choose your ... MORE

This was my first ever time using sitters for my home and Maltese Dog. Pete and Grace arrived for handover before we left for Three weeks to the UK. I was nervous mostly about leaving my dog as he is a sensitive little guy. On my return home my dog Baxter was completely relaxed and did not show any signs of his nervous nature. All of his needs were attended to. The house was immaculate, with the linen and towels washed. There was even a beautiful dinner waiting for us to heat up which was ... MORE

Dear Peter and Grace Thank you so much for taking such good care of our home and especially Mango. He was a happy boy when we arrived home and we could tell instantly he had enjoyed your company and was very relaxed. Thanks for leaving our home nice and clean and for washing sheets towels etc, it wasn't expected and we really appreciate it. Thank you also for leaving dinner for us, this was a lovely surprise. We wish you a happy journey on your travels and hope to see you again in the ... MORE

We left our home, garden and beloved dog-e Danny in the care of Grace and Pete who we had only "met" through Ausie House Sitters and phone calls.. and we were leaving the night before they arrived so we made arrangements for our friend Jen to meet them and show them around etc. During our 3 weeks away we touched base a few times.. they were fantastic ... collecting our mail from the post office, looking after and walking Danny, watering our beautiful garden and keeping the house spotless! (Jen ... MORE
