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: 4786

We are a Newley married ( non smoking ) professional couple in our early 50's . ... We can work from a home base , so can swop anytime !!! We love change . . Therefore excited about swaps . . We look after and are very tidy in our home and will be the same in yours ! Between us we have 2 adult daughters and one grand daughter with a second one due in mid Sep! We love catching up with our family as well as treasure our own time ! We both immigrated to beautiful NZ approx 15 years ago , Doug from Scotland and Linda from South Africa and found each other in Auckland nearly 5 years ago ! We love that NZ is our home as we love the outdoor lifestyle of NZ and really LOVE living close to our fav beach on the shore - waiake beach ( and Browns bay beach ) both 7 to 10 min walk away from our beautiful bungalow !!! We love change and experiencing new places , house swap . . makes that possible. We always say.... A few days away , in a "home away from home" makes for a Refreshing Positive experience while you get to visit new areas in beautiful New Zealand !!
