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...

We enjoyed our house swap. The kids loved the swing in the backyard and enjoyed taking the dog for walks. The house was close to parks and town. - Stephanie Bormans - Tuesday, April 4, 2017

About us

Member ID: 4789

We are a family of four (two kids aged 8 & 10). Mum is an Occupational Therapist and dad is a stay-at-home dad and sewing machine technician. We also have a little Boarder Terrier called called Pixie. We are family orientated and I believe our home reflects this. We love our fruit and veggie garden and hanging out on the deck. On the weekends we hit the beaches, go for walks and enjoy going out for casual meals. We would love for another family to experience our home and our region.

Location description and facilities

Hastings is a great place to holiday. We visited 5 years ago and never left!

There is so much to do in our area and we would be glad to write you a list of the local secrets! There is something here for everyone.

For families there is the outdoor theme park - Splash Planet, the National Aquarium, bike and skate parks, Rush Monroe's ice cream shop, heaps of fun parks, and tractor rides out to Cape Kidnappers.

For outdoors types, Hawkes Bay is renowned for our bike tracks, beautiful surf and swimming beaches, and golf courses. Or get up close to a waterfall in the Tangoio Scenic Reserve.

For the foodies, we have so many brilliant cafes and restaurants, we'd be glad to point you in the right direction. Don't forget wineries, too many to count! Cycling wine tours are a great day out!

Pets to care for at this property

There may be pets to care for on this property.

Our small dog Pixie is part of our family and we would love to take her on holidays with us. However if this is not possible Pixie may need caring for at home. We are also happy to have well behaved dogs at our house.
