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: 8538

Hi! We are a family of 5 and the 6th member of our family is Sassie, our French bulldog. John & I have 3 children aged 10, 9 & 7. We live in a coastal town and enjoy all things to do with the water. We also love to ski & snowboard and to see new places and try new things. We love to travel and spend as much time as we can away doing just that. John and I own and operate early childhood centres and have lived in Northland for just over 10 years, originating from Auckland. Our moved into our home in Mangawhai in August 2015 and love it's peace, privacy and views. It's our retreat.

Property description and facilities

Our home is a part of a gated community and over looks a beautiful lake and in the distance the estuary, sand dune and the Hen and Chicks. In our community we have a pool (open Labour weekend to Easter), a tennis court and a childrens play ground. Our home was built in August 2015 and designed so that everyone can have some space, peace and quiet and relax, or come together and enjoy. We have a court yard in the centre of the two wings that leads out to our pool. The pool was put in in November 2016, so we are busy growing grass and finishing the fencing over the next few weeks. There is another outside living area that faces the lake. And a private deck off the main room with an outside bath for you to star gaze. The main living area is on the ground floor with the childrens bedrooms upstairs of the other wing. We are approx 4kms from Mangawhai Village and 11kms from the Managwhai Surf Beach.
