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: 15937

I am French and have been living in New Zealand for 18 years. I have three kids, Elliot 18, Penelope 16 and Valentine 11 years old. I teach yoga mainly from home, where my studio is, which is very convenient. Our house is located by the edge of a public reserve, overlooking the sea and Rangitoto. The house is big, with 4 bedrooms and a big rumpus. It is very well insulated and warm. We are close to the small village of Howick where we can find anything we need but we are only 30 minutes drive from the city or 35 minutes by ferry from the local Marina. It is a very peaceful and beautiful spot and not too far from the airport (30 minutes). We have a very friendly Labrador and two rag doll crossed cats what are lovely.

Property description and facilities

The house has been fully renovated 5 years ago, it is a really nice house with fantastic view in a great location close to Auckland. The sun pours in all the time in every room so it is a very warm house. Because it is by the edge of a reserve, it has easy access to nice walk and the local beaches.
