Hi, we are Suzanne and Pete, a quiet, considerate, respectful, honest, active, non-smoking, social drinking couple. We are recently retired and guarantee that we will care for your pets and home as though they were our own. My husband enjoys gardening and I like to keep a clean and tidy house.

Pete and I are from New Zealand and have been traveling around Australia in our motorhome for the last 6 years but are now happily preparing to spend the 6 months of summer in each country.

As we are considering settling around the Hervey Bay area we would welcome a 2 or more months pet/house sit around that area but would consider anywhere by the coast in Queensland.

We genuinely like animals and have thoroughly enjoyed house/pet sitting many times in NZ and Australia. As a family we only had a pet budgie due to our many traveling holidays but Oscar certainly gave us 10 years of entertainment and was sadly missed.

Please check out our many excellent references from happy house owners on this site.

Our interests are walking, hiking, cycling and reading and though we may be active during the day we do like to relax in the evening in front of the TV or curled up with a good book. For further information on us please also check out our travel blog on, Select Bloggers, Enter Kruizing Kiwiz.

Two photos are of our house in Rotorua, New Zealand to give confirmation and assurance that we do look after houses very very well.

Peter & Suzanne house & pet sit for me around 4 months I found Peter & Suzanne a very social & out going couple , they kept the house tidy cleaned up the yard " 6 acres " and paid attention to our family dog , ageing cat and did their daily chores with our chooks. This was a unique house sit with me working away weekly therefore sharing the house occasionlly which I found Peter & Suzanne easy to get along with. I would not hesitate for minute recommending Peter & Suzanne for your house sit. ... MORE

I highly recommend Suzanne and Peter. Their communication was excellent and I felt completely confident in them before they had even arrived. They cared for our house and pets perfectly and gave us updates along the way so we had complete peace of mind while we traveled. They are careful, sensible and competent sitters and I would love to have them back anytime.

Suzanne and Peter were great sitters, the dogs were happy and gave a roving review too. Thanks for your help! PS, sorry for the broken TV which wouldn't have provided the best viewing of the All Blacks wallop the Wallabies.

We loved having Suzanne and Peter look after our property, large gardens and our dog Lulu. Everything was really well taken care of we returned to a very tidy home and the garden was looking great (it was the start of the growing season) and the large lawn area mowed and tidy and a very happy Lulu. Also, we had travel plans change and had to extend last minute and Suzanne and Peter accommodated this for us and changed their plans to stay a bit longer which we greatly appreciated. Would not ...

No rating Suzanne and Peter looked after our home, dog and chickens for about ten days in June/July 2018. We enjoyed meeting and getting to know them both. They were respectful and tidy, taking good care of our house and property while we were away. Our young and energetic pup was regularly exercised and given plenty of attention and company. We would not hesitate to recommend Suzanne and Peter for future house sits and wish them all the best.

NEIL (Lichfield North Island, May 2018 - 6 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating What a joy to have Suzanne & Peter house sit for us. We returned to an immaculate home and property, a happy cat and orchid collection and they also had to deal with an emergency caused by a downpour. Our highest recommendation and a lovely couple to deal with. Thanks for all the care you put into the stay.

JENNY (Taupo North Island, Apr 2018 - 6 days) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating Suzanne and Pete did an exceptional job house sitting for us. This was the first time we had left out home and pets and we were quite hesitant, however Suzanne and Pete put our minds at ease. They were easy to communicate with and even sent us photo updates of our pets. Our home was well looked after and was even cleaner than what we had left it! I highly recommend Suzanne and Pete to take care of your home an pets. Thanks for taking care of our home and pets!

No rating Peter was a great house-sitter, great communication prior to the sit and our house was very clean and tidy when we returned. We found him honest, friendly and reliable. Cat was happy too! Would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to ask Peter to housesit for us again.
AMY (Tihiotonga North Island, Dec 2017 - 3 weeks) From Kiwi House Sitters
No rating We couldn't have asked for better house sitters. We were very anxious and apprehensive at first as we have never used a house sitter. We have a cat and greyhound both of which are our babies. Our pets took to Sue and Pete as though they have been part of the family for ages. We were gone for 5 weeks and in that time we have had regular updates, skype chats, emails and facebook messages on how our babies were doing. Upon our return our house was immaculate, gardens were thriving and actually ... MORE
