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: 13144

We are two school teachers with 4 kids living in Taranaki! Our kids range from 8-15years in age and they all love sport and music, and because of this it means we frequently traipse around the country as the support crew for their interests. Our home really is a family home, that we love. We love the Taranaki lifestyle, mountain to surf and all the many free activities that our town of New Plymouth offers us.

Property description and facilities

A lovely sunny property with decks built to capture the warmth, lovely back views on to farmland and a short drive to the heart of the city. With an upstairs games room where table tennis and pool can be played, or a warm conservatory for book reading or jigsaw puzzles, through to a spa pool just outside to watch the shooting stars at night, it really is comfy! Wifi and internet tv provides Netflix for those who want to 'chill' or for the more active, a springfree tramp outside off the side deck. Weber BBQ can be used all year round, bikes, scooters and lots of Lego too. Down the driveway and away off the road makes this a peaceful spot. Come to the region with the mountain and the surf!
