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...

Hi, we are a couple with adult children and three grand children. We both work full time, one of us gets school holidays off and the other works from home. We are looking to house swap mainly in the school holiday's and in the Christmas period. We ideally would would like beach settings for walking, swimming, surfing and generally enjoying the outdoors. However we are open to opportunities and new locations to explore.
