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: 13122

We are a careful, non smoking family of 4 with two sons, Dirk 16 and Ton 14. Our boys love animals and are very empathetic and caring. On our own property we have three horses, two sheep, a chicken and a Jack Russell called Roxy. We love skiing & snowboarding, walking, biking, horse riding on the beach & forestry and we play squash. My husband is also a very keen kite surfer. We also enjoy gardening and can look after any acreage, shift stock etc as we are from a dairy farming background. We also have a pool & spa pool ourselves so know how to take care of these should you require help on your property with this.

Property description and facilities

Our property consists of 12 1/2 acres with a third of the land being in Kiwifruit (kiwi Gold), a third in bush and the remaining land in paddocks. We love walking around our property and watching lots of bird life. Although you have the feeling of being remote our home is only a 5 minute walk from Patumahoe township where you will find a very popular cafe, bar and grill and dairy. Our home is spacious and offers a separate family lounge perfect for teenagers to get away and play games, play on the pinball machine or the air hockey table. There two heat pumps, a gas fire and in the separate lounge an open fire. We have 3 bedrooms with double beds, one bedroom with a single bed and a small bedroom in the "attic" with two single beds. The kitchen is modern and features gas Hobbs. The kitchen area opens out to the pool area where we also have outdoor speakers to enjoy your favourite music. If you enjoy sitting in the shade then our covered veranda offers a lovely quiet spot for reading and your morning coffee.

Pets to care for at this property

There may be pets to care for on this property.

We have 3 easygoing horses which are easy to shift paddocks, 2 sheep, one friendly chicken, some tropical fish in a small aquarium and a Jack Russel called Roxy. Roxy is always roaming the property and never needs tying up. She just needs to have her breakfast and dinner and loves people.
