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: 11889

We are a family of 5 ( children aged 4,7 and 9 yrs). We have lived in NZ for just over a year ( relocated from the north of England for a family adventure) and are keen to explore and see new places.We enjoy the outdoors, mountain biking, beach life, camping and tramping ! Our home has 4 bedrooms (1x king size bed, 1 x bunk bed, and two x singles - can sleep more) 2 x bathrooms and living space with access to outdoor living (BBQ area) its very kid friendly and a home to be cosy and lived! Would like to swap north/ south - anywhere, realistically looking at long weekend (public hols) and school holidays - could do weekend swaps depending on location ? We live in a great community with fantastic local amenities in the village, cafes, bakery, restaurants,bars, gift and clothes shops and supervalue. Beach, park and splash park all within walking distance. Turn around to walk /ride up the port hills / godley head or bus ride / 20 minute drive over the estuary into the city We really enjoy living here and would love other people to swap and share this great place.
