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...

Hi. We are a active family who love the outdoors and live on a beautiful lifestyle property which has picturesque views of the forest. It is very private and peaceful. We wish to explore our beautiful country and also take a break from our busy life. My husband and I both work full time - Nick is a self employed contractor and I am a Real Estate agent. All our children are very sporty and competitive in their sports - rugby and rhythmic gymnastics take a lot of our time. We have 4 children aged 11, 14, 17 and 20. The elder two also work fulltime. We are a house proud family and would treat other houses with care and respect. We are keen to find a swap for this Christmas holidays after 25th December

Location description and facilities

The Riverhead forest borders our property and is great for outdoor recreation, walking, horse riding etc. We are 5 minutes drive to two cafes, a hall which has pilates and yoga and to Riverhead which has a few shops and a big sports field. There is a nearby river and two local primary schools. North Shore beaches and Muriwai beach are appox 20mins away. This location has the joy of living in the country, yet is close to two fairly large shopping centres - kumeu and Albany and 30mins to Auckland city centre.. There is beautiful birdlife here and definitely a peaceful lifestyle with friendly neighbours and horses going up our roads

Pets to care for at this property

There may be pets to care for on this property.

We have two beautiful labradors - one is golden and fairly old called Elmo. He is very friendly and sleeps alot.
The other is young and is a chocolate lab. Ella is full of energy. Both love to be taken for walks or to the beach.
We also have 'snowflake' a white rabbit who is friendly, but remains in a cage.
We can arrange alternative care for them if required.
