Short video about Kiwi House Swap and people's experiences using the site and with house swapping.

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: 11888

We are a family of four who are busy with life and any spare time is spent playing sport and travelling when we get the opportunity. Our house is our relaxing place and we have spend any downtime in the backyard chilling out with family and friends. Our backyard has artificial grass so our kids can practise football and cricket and generally muck around. We love relaxing holidays mixed with some type of adventure. There are many places in NZ that we have yet to visit and hope that we will be able to house swap with some like minded families. We do have two cats that would need to be fed (one you never see and one who is very affectionate!).

Property description and facilities

We own a 1905 villa in Hataitai which we have renovated over the years. It is on three levels with 4 bedrooms on the main level (one with ensuite), a family bathroom which is (just about to be renovated), the kitchen and dining room. Our main lounge room is up six stairs and has a beautiful aspect looking over our backyard. Downstairs, we have another lounge room which leads out through bi-fold doors to a covered veranda with a dining table and BBQ area. Our backyard is sheltered, very private and has artificial grass and captures the sun most of the day so it is great to relax and listen to music. Downstairs we also have a laundry and a guest bedroom with ensuite.

Our home is close to bus stops (20m away), the town belt, beaches, and an easy walk into the city either through the tunnel or over the town belt through Mt Victoria.

We love our home and we hope that any family that stays will do as well.

Location description and facilities

Our house is only a 5min drive to the city, oriental parade, eastern suburbs and the airport. There is public transport 20m from our door which can take you to the city and outer suburbs. You can walk or drive to the beach and depending on what family activities you are into, we can provide details on the best places to go and enjoy! From our house you can take nice walks overlooking the sea or within 5mins be in the town belt bush (you can even walk over the hill into Mt Victoria and the city). We love where we live as everything is so accessible by walking, biking or a short drive.
