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: 11612

We are a married couple in our mid thirties, originally from the UK many years ago but now NZ permanent residents, living in Wanaka. Doug is a professional organic gardener growing food locally, Han is the operations manager for a NZ wide hostel group. We are well travelled, mature and respectfull, having run our house as an Airbnb host we are well versed and experienced in making our house holiday home ready as well as being good guests. We love walking local trails, eating nice local food, relaxing with a nice view and a good book or two. We do have a cat at our house who will be staying when we are away, but she is very well behaved and all supplies will be left for feeding, etc.

Pets to care for at this property

There may be pets to care for on this property.

We have a very cute and well behaved Birman/Norwegian forest cat that will require feeding whilst we are away. All supplies will be provided. She loves being stroked and snoozing in your lap. She is currently house bound, so guests will need to not keep doors closed, but there are many windows allowing for lots of ventilation.
