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...

4 Review overall

We had a very successful house swap. I was nervous about 5 children in my house but they left our house in perfect condition. We loved the large 4 post bed. It was in an easy location. We had lots of email contacts back and forwards. Feel like we have made new friends. - Liane Lovegrove - Thursday, February 4, 2016

We had a fabulous time staying here. Our five children were very entertained with all the indoor and outdoor entertainment. It was close to shops, family and friends which suited us. We would recommend that you try this house swap for yourselves - vanessa hennessey - Monday, March 28, 2016

We had a great house swap with this family. Our house was left immaculate with no wear and tear and the toys beautifully tidied up. Staying at their place was a breeze and the kids loved the pool, tramps, swings and other options on hand at this house. Great communication about the organization for the swap. Totally recommend this family and house for a house swap. - Catriona Eagles - Tuesday, January 31, 2017

About us

Member ID: 1517

We are a family of 7, with 5 children. 3 boys and 2 girls, ranging from 8yrs - 18 yrs. We love to explore our own beautiful country first, before we bring our children overseas. My husband is a secondary school teacher, and I'm a Real Estate Agent. We enjoy the great outdoors and all it has to offer, from beaches, bushwalking, cycling, kayaking, fishing, swimming to relaxing at the end of the day with a good movie. We are house proud people (yes it is possible with five kids), and would treat other people's houses with the same respect.

We have a great outdoor play area for kids, with a huge fig tree, a tire swing, and trampoline. Our latest addition is the swimming pool in the backyard. We have plenty of toys, bikes, scooters and kayaks that can be used. We also live in close vicinity to the Hamilton Gardens, which is well worth a look.
