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...

Top 10 reasons to house swap

Why pay for a holiday house or a bach for a getaway when you can house swap with other like-minded members.

List your home today to find amazing house swaps all over New Zealand.

The top 10 reasons to swap

1. Huge savings on accommodation costs. You can save thousands of dollars by staying in other house swap members’ homes.

2. Savings on food costs. With house swapping you can walk into someone else’s house and have all the comforts of home while being able to save hundreds of dollars by preparing meals at home instead of eating out.

3. Space. With motel or hotel rooms you often find yourself sitting in a cramped room, raiding the mini bar and sleeping too close to snoring family members at night. That leads to more going out and more expenses too!

4. Convenience. Hassle-free travelling. You don’t need to cart everything but the kitchen sink on holiday with you, Just pack light and go.

If you are a family swapping with another family, you may have the convenience of other kids’ toys and play equipment.

5. Privacy. Having your own space instead of sharing hotel or motel facilities with others.

6. Security. Having peace of mind that someone is looking after your own home and it’s not sitting empty.

7. Local knowledge. You can enjoy an area that you may never have planned to visit, using your house swap partner’s local knowledge to discover unique places and things to see.

8. Car swapping. Saving even more money by possibly car swapping.

9. Immediacy. Being able to go on holiday now instead of planning and saving for years.

10. Fun. Kiwi House Swap enables your dreams of travelling and exploring New Zealand to come true
