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: 5199

Hello there, We are a family living on a small lifestyle block . We have beautiful coastal views and a farmhouse country charmer. With only 5 mins walk to our beach and 15 mins to the national park for tramping we have the best of NZ right here! As a registered nurse and farmer we have raised family and are now looking to holiday more regularly as the older ones have moved away. Taranaki has much to offer and it's been a great lifestyle of sea, mountain and friends. Gardens extraordinaire, world class surf and a very friendly community have made for an amazing lifestyle. We enjoy travel and are keen to experience more. We are also involved in the hospitality industry so know how to make people feel welcome and show them a great time
