Short video about Kiwi House Swap and people's experiences using the site and with house swapping.

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: 22491

We are a journalist, a teacher, and two children age 5 and 7. We are pretty new to Nelson and we love exploring everything on offer in the region. We love the outdoors, but when we go to the city (or, a larger city!) we are keen to hit the museums and galleries.

Property description and facilities

Our 1925 villa is a comfortable, lived-in family home. There are two double bedrooms, one with doors leading to the back garden. There is a child's room with bunkbeds, and a sunroom which is used as a small bedroom.

We have all the usual things you'd expect in the house. Our kitchen is a little tired, everything works but we would love to update our oven and dishwasher!

Outside, there is ample space for chilling out, including a large outdoor dining table. We also have a trampoline and lots of other toys for your children to enjoy. We have veges growing all over the place, and many fruit trees (although most of these are a work in progress!).

Location description and facilities

We live in Victory, a vibrant, multicultural part of the city with plenty of life. We're on the outskirts of the town centre - a 20 minute walk or a quick, flat bike ride. From our house you can head out for a walk in the Grampians, or cycle, run or walk to Stoke and beyond along the Railway Reserve. A few minutes walk takes you to Victory Square, where there's a dairy and the best fish n chips in town.

You can pop into town to the Saturday market (the bonus of living close by is not needing to find a carpark) or the Sunday flea market. It's a few minutes from Countdown and New World.
