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: 4861

A big hello from Tony and Gilly. We live in the beautiful sunny Bay of Plenty and feel so happy we have set up home in Bethlehem, a short drive to Tauranga and of course Mt Maunganui with its vibrant summer buzz and of course its beautiful beach. Voted no 1 best beach in New Zealand this year! We love the outdoor life and Tauranga ticks all the boxes. I (Gilly) am a keen rower, Tony enjoys a game of golf and we cycle too.

Property description and facilities

A stylish and beautiful 4 bedroom home with views to die for. Enjoy the expansive upstairs deck, perfect for entertaining and enjoy looking at the changing sea views over to Matakana Island and the Kamai mountain range. There is a lovely blue sail for shelter but still lots of room for relaxing in the sun.

We have 3 large bedrooms downstairs - 2 double beds and 1 room with 2 single beds. There is a lounge to relax in too and a family bathroom and one of the double rooms has a small en-suite bathroom. Step out onto the downstairs deck and enjoy the shade or cool off by taking a dip in our beautiful turquoise pool. The laundry facilities are also contained in the lower level. We also have a lift - useful for taking the shopping upstairs or for family or friends with a disability.

Upstairs will amaze you with the sprawling views from our lounge and kitchen area - both have slider windows which can open up to allow you to maximise the space on a hot summer day. There is another large double bedroom upstairs with large en-suite bathroom. We have another snug lounge with tv if you want to chill and watch a film. There is a guest loo upstairs too.

Enjoy our kitchen with its large island which can easily seat 6 and there is nothing missing and no shortage of space and a butler's pantry to keep the gadgets out of sight.

We have a two bay internal garage and space outside for parking.

Looking for a houseswap with a bit of a quirky and comfortable place to allow us to chill and discover other areas of New Zealand.

Location description and facilities

Enjoy downtown Tauranga with its individual and unusual shops and enjoy the many types of restaurants along the Strand. A very lively place for couples and families. There is a lovely new park beside the water on the Strand and great place for children to play.

Visit Tauranga's Creative Art gallery which always has a range of local artist's exhibitions and if you enjoy theatre, why not check out Baycourt Community and Arts Centre?

McLaren Falls is another beautiful park with waterfalls and rock pools and definitely worth checking out - bring a picnic along, have a walk, go kayaking and enjoy a day out. It comprises of 190 hectares of parkland alongside the picturesque Lake McLauren.

Another cool place to visit is Waimarino, they offer glow-worm kayak tours or if you want to kayak on the Wairoa River this is a must during your stay in the Bay of Plenty.

You have another great town in the Mount or Mt Mounganui. With it's beautiful beach which stretches as far as the eye can see - you can swim, learn to surf and relax and enjoy the sun.

It definitely has a great coffee culture and there are lots of cafes along the waterfront.

If you are feeling energetic and fit - why not hike to the summit of Mauao. You can always reward yourself with a dip in the hot salt water pools below. You can take an easier option and walk around the Mount which is a spectacular walk.

Great shopping in Mt Maunganui with its quirky boutiques.

There are also great markets which take place over the summer - so indulge that foodie in you by visiting one of the Little Big Markets.

If the weather is unsettled, there are cinemas in Tauranga and Mt Maunganui.
