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

Hi There! I'm a big-hearted Leo, keen on exploring more of my home country. I like the way you end up exploring off the beaten track when house sitting or house swapping :) I've done a lot of house sitting in Europe in the past. I love gardens and nature, and would spend most of my time walking, mountain biking or visiting local gardens. Happy to look after your gardens too! I'm a hobby artist (painter) and a bass & guitar player. I have two cats that I adore, and would love to look after yours if you have them. I have recently discovered yoga and meditation. I also enjoy paragliding, flying and sailing, and am currently building my own full sized 2 person kit plane.
