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: 13019

We are a family of four: Mum (Sarah) has a management consulting business, Dad (Sanjay) is a tech entrepreneur, and Gabrielle (8 years) and Francesca (5 years) are great girls who love playing netball, reading and singing. Before having children we travelled internationally as a couple extensively. Since having children and being more 'home-based' we have been using the opportunity to explore more of our own beautiful backyard of NZ. We are house-proud, careful and considerate people who will treat your home with the respect it deserves, and ask the same of those who stay in our home also.

Property description and facilities

Just 4 minutes drive from the CBD. Spacious luxurious 4 bedroom villa with central heating / cooling in an extremely central Auckland location. Come to our place if you want to stay in a beautiful Auckland home in a safe, leafy suburb just a few minutes drive from Auckland's city centre and stunning harbour.

Herne Bay is one of Auckland's oldest suburbs and is enviously positioned just 5 minutes walk away from Herne Bay beaches, fabulous Ponsonby & Herne Bay cafes, bars and restaurants, and only 15-20 minutes walk to Auckland's Viaduct Harbour. It is positioned on the inner and outer link bus routes which run every 10 - 15 minutes, and is the perfect base to explore everything wonderful Auckland has to offer.

The villa is fully modernised with insulation and central heating and cooling throughout. It has been extensively renovated to make it warm, modern and comfortable. Included are four large bedrooms and two bathrooms (one is an ensuite), a spacious designer kitchen, separate lounge/dining, media room, plenty of off street parking, and a substantial outdoor living area (partly covered) including a spa pool.

The Master bedroom has a Super King bed, and there are two bedrooms with King Single beds and a fourth bedroom which is usually used as our office but can be set up with a single trundler bed. The media room also has a comfortable double sofa bed.
