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: 13121

We are a family of 5. Our 3 boys are 4,7 and nearly 9. We are originally from the UK but have lived in Wellington for nearly 2 years now. Paul is in IT and works in the city. I have been overseeing the renovation of our house and looking after the kids and though am not working right now have worked in international development. We love the outdoors and having adventures and hope to see as much of New Zealand as we can for as long as we are here. We love living in Khandallah and Wellington and hope to be able to share this with others!
