Perfect Kiwi House Sitters

62, retired

61, retired

Hello, Grace and Pete here. :)

For the past 12 months we are been housesitting in WA & East Coast , we have travelled here from NZ to visit our children and first grandson. Due to Covid and recently selling our House in NZ our trip here has been longer then planned. We are interested in house sits only in PERTH for rest of 2022..

21 Housesits completed in Australia .

We are two recently retired Kiwi's (ex builder and nurse).

Both Double Vaccinated.

We have always loved and had pets (mainly cats and dogs). We are very much into our exercise so would love having a dog to take for walks.

We love gardening & would respect & keep your house clean. We have been moteliers in the past so we know how to clean!
Non smokers, very reliable and we both have police clearances.

We have been house sitting for 4 years now (Aus and NZ), please check out our references.

Please feel free to send a message!

Reviews (21)
Pete and Grace have lived up to our every expectation and all previous reviews. They are great people and fabulous house sitters. Through very difficult times (floods, Covid, travel disruptions etc), they maintained full lines of communication and were always flexible with contingency arrangements. They proved to be completely reliable, trustworthy in all matters, and always displayed initiative and commonsense. Our prime concern was for the welfare and care of our animals. Pete and Grace ...

Pete and Grace are absolutely wonderful house-sitters and human beings! I feel so lucky to have had them look after my place while I was away. On my return, the house was absolutely pristine - it has never been cleaner!! They also did an amazing job looking after the yard, garden and pool, under difficult circumstances (major flooding in SE Queensland!). The garden looks so lush and they cared so well for our newly laid turf. Pete and Grace were so easy to communicate with and provided regular ... MORE

Thanks so much Grace and Pete, Frankie Schnauzer has had more attention and care than she gets with me, one happy puppy. The house was definitely much cleaner when I got home than when I left it, you really have gone above and beyond. I would recommend you to everyone, and will contact you in the future if you are this side of the ditch.

Peter and Grace sat for us for a second time. They are perfect house & pet sitters, I would highly recommend them. Our cat and urban chickens appear happy and content, the garden is flourishing and the house is immaculate, inc. bedding & towels freshly laundered! What better way to come home?!...but wait, it gets better - delicious soup and bread waiting for us at home! Thank you, Peter & Grace!

RUTH (North Perth WA, Oct 2021 - 1 week 4 days)
Thanks so much to Peter and Grace for looking after our girl, Sooty, and our home so well. We returned to an immaculately clean home, washed linen, and a relaxed and happy dog. We experienced good communication when organising the sit, and received plenty of updates while we were away. There was even home made pumpkin soup waiting for us, which was delicious and much appreciated after a long day of driving. I highly recommend Peter and Grace to house sit. Thank you again for ...

Having a number of pets that require medication can make it harder to find housesitters that you trust to look after your fur and feather babies, but after meeting Pete and Grace we were confident that they would take great care of our pets and we were proved right. They were unfazed by the various medicines and special diets required and took it all in their stride, and our cats - one of whom can take a little while to trust new people - went over for a stroke straight away which is always a ...

JOANNE (Duncraig WA, Sep 2021 - 2 weeks)
Peter and Grace did an amazing job looking after our house and two cats. The house was so clean and tidy when we got home and both cats were happy and very well cared for. They even left us a lovely tart in the fridge that we were very grateful to find. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a housesesitter and we would be very happy to have them housesit for us again anytime.
MICHELE (Subiaco WA, Aug 2021 - 1 week)
Grace and Peter were an absolute delight to have as house sitters! Lovely genuine people who ensured that we were kept up to date whilst away. The cats were well looked after and the house was immaculate on our return. After a very long drive home and getting back late at night - we were so grateful for our bed being made, fresh picked flowers on our table AND a cottage pie in the fridge! How amazing is that! � We would definitely recommend them to have as house sitters
LILY (Bayswater WA, Aug 2021 - 3 weeks)
Grace and Peter were wonderful house sitters. We got home to an immaculate house, a happy cat and even a lasagne in the fridge for tea. They kept in touch while we were away to report on the cat and we would highly recommend them and have them again if they are available.
SUE AND NIGEL (Nedlands WA, Jul 2021 - 1 week 5 days)
Pete and Grace looked after my house and my cat very well. They sent me cute photos of my cat during their stay and left us dinner in the fridge for when we got home after driving all day. They also helped facilitate the sparky/plumber coming to fix the hot water system that broke a few days prior to their stay which i was very greatful for.
GRETA (Scarborough WA, Jun 2021 - 2 weeks 4 days)
Peter and Grace sat for us over two weeks, caring for our elderly cat, suburban chickens, house and garden. Communication before and whilst we were away was great. We came home to a beautifully clean house, happy pets and best of all soup & bread, very much needed after a long journey home! We would highly recommend Peter and Grace as sitters for your home and pets and will definitely be booking them again when we next go away!
HELEN (Scarborough WA, Jun 2021 - 1 week 6 days - 2 of 2 endorsements from this owner )
My sister and I had the privilege of having Peter and Grace house sit for us. They were very obliging and couldn't do enough for us. Our little dog and cat were very well cared for and very happy upon our return. Similarly the house and garden was clean and tidy even though they had to cut short their stay due to our early return due to a family crisis. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as superb house sitters and have kept their contact numbers in the hope they may be able to ... MORE

I'm a first timer...... A happy cat tells the story and "Roy" had plenty to say. Coming home to a bottle of wine and lasagne for dinner.... exceptional! Thanks so much for taking the pressure out of my holiday and giving me peace of mind. House and garden well looked after as well as Roy and yes please come again! Maureen and Roy

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.
KAT (Upper Moutere South Island, Jul 2020 - 1 week 1 day) From Kiwi House Sitters
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
NICOLA (Wights Mountain QLD, Sep 2019 - 1 week)
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
MARNIE (Coolum bea QLD, Sep 2019 - 1 week 3 days)
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!
