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 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.
