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: 26302

We are a Christian blended family with 3 children aged 12 / 13 / 15 & two 7yr old Spoodles. and have been living in our beautiful part of Northern Christchurch for a little over a year. We really enjoy our spacious home and the beautiful nature reserve right over our back fence. Growing up, my large family used to do house swaps in the North Island and these holidays are the ones i remember and appreciated the most. Bjanka, is originally from Tauranga however she moved to Christchurch just over 10yrs ago and can't seem to shake the hold the city has. After immigrating to NZ from the UK 20 years ago, Andrew lived in Nelson for a good chunk of time . Now that our family is becoming more independent as they grow, we feel like its even more important to spend time together away from home, playing board games, going to the pools/beach, walking, climbing trees (they aren't too old for that yet!), a bit of shops if there are some and even better if there is some sun to relax in. Andrew is a Sales Manager in a vehicle dealership, and is an avid cook, relaxes by listening to books, going for walks with the dogs, chilling in the spa watching the stars and enjoying good food on his charcoal BBW. Bjanka is an Accountant in a small family business, enjoys cake art, sewing, beaches, lawn / board games, relaxing with a glass of wine or exploring our country, especially loving historic buildings. Our children enjoy playing music, playing with any pets, water play, sports, obstacle courses, exploring rivers etc.
