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: 4356

A professional couple with a little fluffy dog named Darcy and 2 cats. We are originally from the UK but have settled in Wellington for the last 7 years. We both love walking and playing sports, mainly footy but we have just started playing volleyball. We love dining out and visiting all the new restaurant and bars that are constantly opening.

Property description and facilities

Our house which has a distinct cottage feel is located 10 minute drive from the central city and very close to Zealandia the wildlife sanctuary. We are also very close to some world class mountain biking routes. Our house is a 2 bedroom but we also has a study with a sofa bed if required. We also have a lovely deck with Bbq for enjoying during the summer from where you can hear the Kakas and if you are lucky the kiwis in the evening from the sanctuary.

Location description and facilities

10 minutes from city center, very close to Wellington's largest fences Wildlife sanctuary (zealandia), close to some bush walk and the historic bunkers on Wright's Hill. Also very close to world class mountain biking on Makara. We live in a family orientated suburb so plenty of kids play areas and swimming pool (with spa for the adults), 2 local pubs within walking distance, plenty of takeaways in the area and great public transport to take you into the city center (30 second walk from the house). Wellington offers its many attractions and has something for everyone, museums, theatres, art gallaries, shopping and other entertainment such as ten pin bowling. It also offers a vast array of restaurants and bars (incl. Many many craft beer bars). For those interested in wine a visit over the Wairapa Hill to visit Martinborough is a must (under 1 and a 1/2 hrs). Perfect place to visit for people wanting to do something different everyday or enjoy relaxing in all the cafes and Wellington beaches.

2 cats, Devon and Chester, just need to top up food and water. Potentially a Labraspoodle but we are happy to take him with us.
