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: 12299

We are a family of five, Brett is a company director and I'm a midwife. Our eldest son is 12, our daughter is 10 and our youngest son is 8. All three children dance ballet and jazz. Our life is very busy with work, school and dance activities, so in our holiday time we like to head into nature. We all enjoy time at the beach, kayaking, paddle boarding and making sand castles.

Location description and facilities

Prebbleton is a "village" on the outskirts of Christchurch in the Selwyn area. What was once a rural village has become a semi-rural township that has access to all the amenities 'townfolk' enjoy, but with the added joy of being surrounded by nature.
Prebbleton itself has a some lovely eateries, and a couple of pubs. It is only 10 minutes to Lincoln which has more lovely shops, and great eating places, plus a supermarket. They also have a farmers market each month.

Akaroa is only 60 odd minutes drive over the hill. Christchurch beaches are approx 45 minutes away. There are lots of great hill tracks within 30 minutes drive.
The city centre is just 20 minutes on the motorway.
