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: 16079

We live in the seaside village, Eastbourne, Wellington. We have four children; 2 boys (19 and 18) who attend university in Christchurch, and two girls (16 and 12). We love family holidays as we can be together and do lots of walking and discovering new places. We would love to be able to do more. We love Eastbourne and hope that you would enjoy it too. It has a beach, a village and is only a half hour drive to the city (non-peak) or a twenty minute ferry ride across the harbour. I am a Primary teacher and my husband works in IT in the city.

Property description and facilities

We are a family of six who love living in Eastbourne; a village by the sea. Eastbourne is located a 30 minute drive, or 20 minute ferry ride away from Wellington city, and a 20 minute bus or car ride to Lower Hutt. Our house is a two minute walk from a swimming beach and we have a kayak and a couple of bikes that you are free to use. Eastbourne Village is also a five minute walk away. It has a local supermarket, library, chemist, fruit shop, butcher and cafes etc. There are also three primary schools minutes away. Tennis courts and various bush walks are minutes away also. We think Eastbourne is ideal; it's a lovely seaside village but is close to a city if you feel like visiting Wellington and all it has to offer.
