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: 1637

My husband and I have 3 kids, 13 yr old, 4 yr old and a one yr old. We are small business owners and I am currently on maternity leave from being a primary school teacher. We love family holidays and having those experiences with our kids and showing them different parts of New Zealand. We live right by the beach and Bottle Lake Forest as we love the relaxed lifestyle and friendly, safe community we live in. Our family love their mountain biking, golfing, basketball, running, surfing and swimming.

Property description and facilities

We live in a beach suburb right opposite the Waimairi Beach Golf Course. It is 4 bedroom plus study. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds, one of the bedrooms has bunks and the final bedroom has a cot and pull out couch. It is open plan kitchen, dining and living with a separate lounge/media room. It has underfloor heating and heat pumps so toasty warm in the winter. It is also set up for kids with a bedroom with a cot and pull out sofa. You have a beautiful outlook of the golf course from the front deck and it is only a 5 min walk to the beach or to Bottle Lake Forrest. Bottle Lake Forrest is renown in Christchurch for walkers, runners and bikers. It is a 5min drive to the nearest cafe, The Beach Cafe and a couple of mins drive to the local shopping complex with a supermarket, post shop, chemist and a couple of takeaway options. Lovely friendly, gorgeous suburb and you can smell the salt air from the front yard.
