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: 8885

We are a couple that has a 3 bedroom house in a coastal lakeside - bushland setting in an quiet area of Lake Macquarie south of Newcastle in NSW Australia. Within 30 minutes you can be on a surf beach or up in the nearby hills and bushland. We are both in our mid 50s and like the quiet life without too many complications. At this stage, we are looking at spending 7-8 weeks in Nelson/Tasman region in June/July 2017. This will be to develop business and lifestyle opportunities in Nelson with the longer objective to move there. I run my business here, while Learne has a full time work so the house swap option with like minded Kiwis we find really appealing. We hope that our house will be the perfect option for a lakeside escape.
