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...

Hi, We are Nick and Sue. I'm Nick - I'm an active 55 year old who loves fishing, diving, motor bikes, mountain biking and tramping. I work as a Marine Engineer. I'm Sue, I'm 54 and enjoying daily walks with the dog, tramping,yoga and cooking. I am an Early childhood teacher. We both love travel, gardening, music and animals. We have 3 beautiful adult children who have all left home. We have a little well behaved jack russell dog called Luca who would also come with us. Any swap would require looking after our friendly cat Pare.

Property description and facilities

Sit on the expansive deck and enjoy the amazing views over the Opua Marina and Waikare Inlet.
Very close to boat ramp (5 mins door to water). Off street parking for boat and cars.
Peaceful and quiet location.
The Bay of Islands is one of the top holiday destinations of New Zealands North made up of 140 subtropical islands. It’s known for its undeveloped beaches, big-game fishing, Maori cultural artefacts and an abundance of outdoor activities.

This much loved, comfortable and spacious home is situated in the quiet port of Opua and sits peacefully above the Opua marina with views up the Waikare inlet and over bush land, abundant with native Tui and Kereru (wood pigeon).

A wonderful home for evening barbeques on the roomy deck and plenty of space in the open plan living, dining kitchen areas to entertain or just hang out and relax. With three bathrooms there is plenty of privacy for all.

Situated at the end of a quiet street it is close to all amenities. With the boat ramp literally just below you, you can have your boat in the water in 5 minutes and be out in the middle of the Bay of Islands in no time. Plenty of room for off street parking of boat and cars too.
