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: 24837

We are a couple who have lived happily in Wellington for many years. But now we are semi-retired we've decided it's time to try out living in other parts of the country. Swapping houses for a while seems an ideal way to do this. We'd be happy with swapping for just a couple of weeks but would consider more extended swaps. We've already done a couple of swaps with friends and family and are keen to try somewhere further afield. Because we're keen trampers we'd ideally like to swap to locations with good tramping options nearby. This isn't a must, however, and we are willing to try out pretty much anywhere. Places with nice weather are especially welcome! We are former cat owners and have looked after friends' dogs on occasions, so we are willing to take on pet-minding duties for short periods.
