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...

Tawa, Wellington

About us

Member ID: 13571

We are a family of 4, my name is Steph and my husband is Dean; we have two boys aged 12 and 13. The family wouldn't be complete without our pets Maddie (Cat) and DJ (Golden Retriever Dog). The pets won't necessarily be at the house during the swap. With the increasing costs of family holidays we love the idea of being able to swap properties enabling us (and those we swap with) to enjoy family time, special trips, and adventures without the handicapping cost of accommodation - a win win for all. We love the idea of being able to have family holidays by swapping houses with other like minded individuals enabling us to travel more frequently around our beautiful country and abroad. We love the outdoors, mountain biking, beaches, lakes (hubby and son would say golf courses are important!) - no where is out of the question.

Property description and facilities

A great family home located in Tawa just a short 10 minute drive from central Wellington. Fully fenced section means that it is suitable for kids and pets. My name is Steph and my husband is Dean, we have two boys ages 12 & 13. The front section is big enough to kick around a ball, play backyard cricket and there is a trampoline out the back. The house sits on a flat section with lovely views over Tawa with the last of the sun meaning that drinks on the deck and a BBQ are the order of the night. The house has a newley renovated Kitchen and Laundry. It is spacious, with a large rumpus room downstairs with a table tennis table, tv, beanbags and matresses.

Location description and facilities

Wellington City is beautiful with something for everyone whether it be City Tours, Museums, Shopping, Theatre, Bars, or Restaurants to cater for all.
