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...

Location description and facilities

Personally, we enjoy the marvellous peace and quiet, the gorgeous scenery, great coastal walks beginning right outside the front door, swimming, kayaking, climbing over rocks at the beach, walks along the beach. The community is exceptionally open and supportive.

There are dozens of vineyards, a community cinema and theatre, a golf course, excellent sporting fields, mountain biking, archery and more. The island has many after-school activities for children, including several dance studios, soccer, rugby, gymnastics and netball clubs. The island has two primary schools and a high school.
