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: 26297

We are Suzanne and Peter, 70 and 66 respectively, who enjoy e-biking and tramping, quiz nights, lawn bowls and exploring New Zealand. We returned to NZ after 7 years of traveling and working around Australia living permanently in a motorhome. We have 3 grown up children, two in Australia and one in NZ. We would like to swap with like minded people and open to any offers and dates at this stage apart from school holidays which we would prefer to avoid. We are interested in swaps for one to two weeks and would be open to swapping a small car for lower South Island exchanges.

Property description and facilities

Our home is 16 years old and in an exclusive area of Rotorua, very close to the Redwood Forest for walking and mountain biking. Close to many spectacular lakes for picnics, walks and swimming. The house has a large deck to enjoy the amazing views of Lake Rotorua and adjacent farmland ensuring total privacy and relaxation. With large bi-fold doors opening out to the deck from the family room, lounge and main bedroom, the whole house invites an indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The internal access garage would have space for one car with room for one more by the side of the house.
Also, as we lived in a motorhome in Australia for 8 years, we would be very interested in swapping our home for a motorhome anywhere in the North Island.
