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: 12749

Hello, we're an italo-franco-new zealand family with two gorgeous 12 and 10 years old boys who love outdoors. Our house is brand new, finished building in last december and it located in the lovely area of Atawhai with a nice view on the hills. My husband works locally in a research institute and I'm a legal translator working from home. We've been in New Zealand for 11 yers and always spent Christmas at home. Now that we own our own house, we'd love to house swap to explore other parts of New Zealand. We're located 5 minutes drive to town, 10 to the beach but usually go everywhere biking (15 mins to town with a cycling way). this an ideal location to explore our beautiful region, tramp, sail, bike, kayak or ski and enjoy Nelson's sunshine and cafes!

Property description and facilities

This is a brand new house finished building last december. It i located in lovely Atawhai, on the road heading to Picton, 5 minutes driving from town, 10 mins from Tahunanui beach and 10 from gorgeous Cable Bay. On a hill, there is no garden, but a quite a big deck with a wonderful view on the hills. Brand new kitchen, very warm and sunny, separate TV room (no TV at this, we just have an 24-inch screen PC to stream ondemand programs, including French canals) and 2 bath room, one shared and one in the ensuite double bedroom (french doors give on the deck).There's a all-carpeted double garage and a huge driveway with basket ball hoop for kids to play. 2 minutes down the road is a fantastic and safe playground for kids, loads of children to play with, a dairy, and bus stop with regular rides to town. It includes a kayak, loads of legos if you have children and the property is fully fenced. still need to be planted for privacy, but we can enjoy our sunny beautiful deck anyway.
