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: 7897

I have been retired for the past two years and my husband Paul is due to retire at the end of this year 2016. We have lived in Taupo for 42 years and have only just sold our family home and moved into a two bedroomed apartment in the centre of Taupo. We like to travel overseas and throughout New Zealand and have only just realised that we could save ourselves a lot of money by joing House Swap. We also have a 2 bedroomed beach house at Ohiwa on the Bay of Plenty coast between Whakatane and Opotiki. We are happy to swap either of our properties.

Property description and facilities

Situated in the centre of Taupo our two bedroomed apartment is on the top floor offering views of Mt Tauhara to the East and South towards Lake Taupo. It's only a 2 minute walk into busy Taupo township with it's wide range of bars, restaurants and shops. Ready access to the Lake and other outdoor activities makes this the perfect place to spend time summer or winter.
