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: 24489

We are a family with adult children, who love to explore and experience the treasures of New Zealand. We enjoy the outdoors, our New Zealand bush, tramping, the snow and the coast. Although our children now live in different cities for work and study, we holiday together each year to explore another part of NZ.

Property description and facilities

In the heart of the Tauranga Harbour, Matapihi is a hidden treasure. Our home is a rural lifestyle block in Matapihi. Large house set in expansive garden, positioned for the sun and view of Mount Manganui. We are regenerating a wetland to help protect the harbour and to create a wonderful bird habitat.
The location is perfect, walk to Tauranga across the bridge walkway, or 5-10 minutes drive to the Mount Maunganui beaches.
The house is roomy, modern and comfortable, we also have a fire heated spa, that is worth the effort to prepare and heat.
