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...

4 Review overall

Was nice to stay in a big home and enjoy Tauranga, going to the Mount Beach and vistiing family. Kids enjoyed riding their bikes to the park. - Stephanie Bormans - Monday, February 15, 2016

We had a great house swap. It was nice to spend time with my family, and yet have our own independence. Enjoyed the reserve and walkways by their house. - Stephanie Bormans - Sunday, March 27, 2016

About us

Member ID: 6562

We are a family of seven (please don't let that scare you). Steve is a mechanic and I (Vanessa) am a teacher. We have five awesome kids (ranging from 11-4) who would be very appreciative and respectful of your home. We have a dog (who we would hope could come with us or we could farm out to loving friends if that isn't an option)and two cats. We love camping and river exploration but also enjoy the beach. We have six bedrooms and can sleep twelve people so feel free to bring the extended family! We are looking forward to seeing more of New Zealand and having many happy memories for our children.

We would love it if you could feed our two cats. We have a dog too but would hope to take her with us or palm her off to friends .
