Short video about Kiwi House Swap and people's experiences using the site and with house swapping.

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: 7892

We are looking for a base in Queenstown or the wider Queenstown lakes area. We have a Milford Track booking for 24th January and would also like to cycle the Otago Rail Trail before the walk if possible. We have swapped 3 times in this area, twice at Lake Hayes and once in Frankton via the newspaper and the internet. Please note: The map shows the location of our home, but we are looking to swap our holiday apartment. We have a 3 bedroom townhouse on Marine Parade at Mount Maunganui Beach. It is in a row of 9 townhouses and part of a body corporate. There are two double bedrooms and one single. Walking distance to the shops, cafes, mount hot pools, mount walking tracks, pilot bay for watching the cruise ships and across the road from the beach. There are surf schools across the road and SUP, kayak, and JetSki hires available at Pilot Bay. The people we have swapped with previously wanted to be by the beach hence the reason we can offer this in January or in the July school holidays. Sometimes, we can be negotiable around the dates. My husband and I both love travelling and the adventures that come with travelling as well as being active. We both work in education and try to escape somewhere warm overseas in the July school holidays. We are open to suggestions so please contact us if you are interested in a mid year swap. The last couple of years we have become empty nesters, but even though we miss the kids, the fridge stays full.
