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...

Gidday... well, we've got two little tykes - Fin who is 5 and Tosca, 3 - plus my wife Sophie, and myself. Before having kids Soph and I did lots of travelling and adventuring around NZ and the world.... surfing, kayaking, mountain biking and all that. Now, with Fin and Tosca around the adventures are a bit different... We moved to Nelson 3 years ago and, while we love it, its always good to get out and about. I'd be keen to explore NZ with a 5 years old's perspective. It doesn't really matter where we go. Renting holiday houses is not really affordable for us - so this website is great. I'd describe our house as a spacious 4 bedroom family home close to town but with a rural outlook. Its a 10 minute walk to the city centre and 2 minute walk to the Maitai River and swimming hole. There is plenty of family stuff to do within walking distance, plus great mountain biking in the hills surrounding the house.

Property description and facilities

I'd describe our house as a spacious 4 bedroom family home close to town but with a rural outlook. We look out on the 'Centre of NZ' park and border a city council green belt. Its a 10 minute walk to the city centre and 2 minute walk to the Maitai River (5 mins to Black Hole and other swimming holes). There is plenty of family stuff to do within walking distance, plus great mountain biking in the hills surrounding the house.
