Short video about Kiwi House Swap and people's experiences using the site and with house swapping.

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...

Pets to care for at this property

There may be pets to care for on this property.

We have a friendly rainbown lorikeet who needs water and feeding daily. It's simple and easy. We would be happy if swappers are keen to look after it. Otherwise we can arrange some friends to do it.
