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: 26350

We are a family of five with three older girls, 11, 12, 15 years who are fast becoming well-travelled adventurers. We are very respectful of the places we stay and other cultures. We are an NZ family currently living in Auckland, N.Z. We are keen to travel within New Zealand whilst there are covid travel restrictions.

Property description and facilities

Come and stay at our beautifully renovated bungalow, in the heart of Ellerslie, 2 blocks walk from restaurants, cafes and the heart of the village. There is a bus stop literally outside our house, which has loads of buses with routes to the city, Sylvia Park and out to Botany amongst others. Ellerslie train station is an 8-minute stroll.

Enjoy our tropical front garden with an enormous trampoline for the kids, or chill out in our floral back garden, on the tree swing or in our all-weather outdoor room. Kids got too much energy? We have a huge park with playground and basketball/netball hoops literally across the road from our house for the kids to hang out and let off some steam.

We have 3 bedrooms, the fourth is used as an office and also a guest room - the choice is yours! Our home was renovated a couple of years ago and easy low maintenance for families.
