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...

Property description and facilities

Our home is a modern (one year old) house in the suburb of Millwater, 25 minutes north of Auckland city. We have two living areas and two bedrooms downstairs, with a third living area and two more bedrooms upstairs. Designed to capture the all day sun, we enjoy morning sun in the family room at the front of the house while the lounge receives ample afternoon sun.

The partially covered patio also offers great indoor outdoor flow between the indoor and outdoor living areas. The kitchen is well appointed with the usual modern appliances or we have a Weber BBQ on the patio also available.

The house has heat pumps through out for heating in winter and cooling in summer. No Sky TV however we have Netflix /Playstation available.

The house is in a quiet street which overlooks a small bush / grass reserve and a quiet stream. The subdivision offers spacious pedestrian walkways and cycle ways with several childrens playgrounds nearby.

For a slightly longer walk or cycle, the Orewa estuary cycle way (also known as the Te Ara Tahuna Estuary walkway) is a 7km loop within easy reach of the house. We have several mountain bikes and one childs bike available for use.

Location description and facilities

Located on the Hibiscus Coast, we are a short 5 minute drive from the safe swimming waters of Orewa Beach. If it's not beach weather then take a stroll along the beachfront promenade or just enjoy a flat white or meal from one of many cafes and restaurants in the bustling Orewa township.

We are also within 5 minutes from Auckland's only indoor snow sports venue, Snowplanet, or if the cold is not your thing then the countries newest championship standard golf course at Wainui is also just five minutes away.

If its superb shopping you're looking for then we are 15 minutes from the Westfield Mall in Albany, where you can also catch a movie at the Event cinema complex or grab a meal at one of the many eateries.

The hustle and bustle of the big city is just 30 minutes away. Try your luck at the Sky City Casino, bungey off the Sky Tower, or enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants around the Viaduct Basin or Wynyard Quarter or relax in the gardens of the Auckland Domain after visiting the Auckland Museum.

For the more adventurous and outdoors minded then we are within one hours drive from Auckland's magnificent west coast beaches of Piha and Muriwai. Go walking in the Waitakere Ranges or head north to the beautiful Matakana and explore Omaha beach, Tawharanui Regional park, our local wineries, farmers markets or try snorkelling the famous Goat Island marine reserve.

We love living on the Hibiscus Coast and we are sure you will also. It has everything you expect from a big city except with the laid back beach atmosphere that comes from living in the coastal town of Orewa.

Pets to care for at this property

There may be pets to care for on this property.

We do have a cat and a small dog. The dog woulld most likely be placed in a kennels or with friends to look after. If you don't mind cats then Sox is friendly and affectionate and just needs feeding once a day. He generally comes and goes as he pleases (via cat door) and sleeps in the garage.
