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: 172

Hi, We are looking for house swaps in NZ, Australia and in particular Sydney. Jane & I have 4 children so are looking for a home to suit. Our oldest children were born in Sydney and we have many friends there and like to come over regularly. We are a professional couple, Jane has her own successful recruitment company and Justin has his own major events and sports management company. We lead very busy lives but enjoy family holidays to unwind. Regards, Justin & Jane
