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: 13001

We are a family of 5 (children 12, 11 and 9) who are blessed to live in paradise in Whitianga. Our home is not flash but it has a good sized back yard, 4 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. We are within walking distance of town, the beach and the supermarket. We LOVE our town but would love the opportunity to visit other parts of our beautiful country without the exorbitant costs that goes with a family of 5. We have a cat Oscar and a fish Reccy who would need caring well as the guinea pigs we are hoping to "gift" my husband for his upcoming birthday! I'm a teacher which means it's school holiday or weekend swaps for us.

There is a good sized backyard, driveway for scooters, a trampoline and ten minutes stroll to a fabulous swimming beach for kids. 5 minutes walk into town or to the local supermarket/picture theatre.
