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: 15904

Hi There, We are a small family of three, with our 9 year old son. We love our home set in the bush of the Western hills (Belmont/Tirohanga) in Lower Hutt. We enjoy travelling about and getting to know other parts of the country. We're non-smokers, like to keep our house clean and tidy and we are very reliable. We have a small dog named Mac who is happy to come with us or equally happy to stay at the local kennels.

Property description and facilities

We love our place as it is very relaxing and private, has lots of birds around (Tui's, Keruru, Fantail's, and once a year the Shining Cuckoo lays its eggs in the Gray Warblers nest).
We like having BBQ's on the deck, lying in the hammock and Toby likes sliding down the corkscrew tunnel slide off the treehouse. We have a waterfall just below us in the bush, are sunny and north facing. We have a cable car down to our place but there are only 40 steps if you want to walk as well. The house has a monitored alarm for peace of mind when you are out an about.
