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: 13517

Our family of 4 ... mum, dad 19yr old (male) & 16yr old (female). With the costs of going on holiday increasing and the interest within the family to have a family holiday this year up North. Got me thinking maybe a house swap was the way to go. We enjoy the outdoors, can look after your pets although we don't have one of our own. We attend our local Salvation Army in Johnsonville. Approx dates we are interested in are from December 23 - December 29 or 30. Both teenagers keen to get back home to celebrate the new year with friends.
