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: 8920

We are a family of 5 with 3 teenage children, but 2 of them are at university. We love the beach, skiing, and love living within walking distance of Te Papa and the waterfront of Wellington...and all those cafes.... We also enjoy running up Mt Victoria and around Oriental Bay. I play the bass guitar. My husband is a leadership consultant/trainer and I am in the health workforce. Currently we have just one son at home but the others come back for holidays.

Property description and facilities

This is a private, quiet and recently modernised house with double glazing and full insulation. The decks and living areas face North-East so the floor-to-ceiling windows bring sun all day until about 3pm to keep you toasty warm. There are 2 double bedrooms (with newish queen beds) and the main bedroom has walk in wardrobe and ensuite. There is a car deck for two vehicles, with a steep short path (no steps) down to the house. The views are into the harbour including Oriental Bay and the fountain. It is 5 minutes walk to Oriental Bay beach and cafes, 10 minutes walk to Courtenay Place nightlife and bus hub, and 15-20 minutes walk to Te Papa and main retail shops. There are many bush and hill walks adjacent, including 15 minutes up Mount Victoria for 360 degree views of Wellington.
