What a great idea! I was about to spend a fortune on a hotel for my partner and I to go to Wellington for a wedding, but found a fantastic house swap opportunity on the site. Easy peasy. No problems...

About us

Member ID: 313

We are an active and professional couple with two young children 7 and 9 yrs. We love to surf and snowboard with the kids, bike ride and bush walks. We completed the renovation (wife architect) of our Bach / Home in 2012 and thinking it would be great to swap with like minded people. The surf is great here, but would be nice to explore the east coast over Xmas and New Year for a change. Great Barrier maybe? Coromandel or northland. Anywhere near a south island or international ski field would be desirable in winter as well. Our place is 5 min easy walk to beach and cafe with sea views, 40 mins drive to Auckland city and the airport. Willing to swap cars for South Island or international swap.
