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: 13377

We have five people in our whānau .... only one at home however! Our two daughters live and work in Auckland and our son is currently home-schooled. We always love the opportunity to gather the family together in Auckland whenever we can take a break and explore what's on offer in the sunny North Island.
