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: 6688

My name is Don Garner, I am a law professor in the United States. In 2000 my wife Dobra and I came to New Zealand and Australia where I had lectured at universities and law schools. While taking a tour in the Northland we came upon a beautiful beachfront property at Coopers Beach, near historic Mangonui and it soon became our second home. We have spent many summers and autumns at our beach house and we never seize to be fascinated by ever changing magnificent views of Doubtless Bay. Coopers Beach is a half moon beach lined by pohutakawa trees, safe for swimming and a pleasure to walk. Our home sits on an elevated bank overlooking the Bay, just a few steps from the beach. It's a very well maintained two- story, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with an open plan living, dining and kitchen area, a wide deck on the ocean side and a spacious kentia-shaded patio in front. There is a two-car garage and additional parking space.

Property description and facilities

Our house sits on an elevated bank overlooking Doubtless Bay, just a few steps from a half-moon golden-send beach lined by pohutakawa trees. The house is very well maintained with two bedrooms and an ensuite on the top floor. The ground level is an open plan living, dining and kitchen area with large sliding doors allowing access to the wooden deck with Northern exposure and unobstructed views. The third bedroom ensuite is on this level. Wake up in the morning to the sound of the waves and the astounding views of the Bay and enjoy your breakfast on the deck. Spend a day walking the beach, swimming, reading or visiting nearby Mangonui with its galleries, shops and eateries. Take a trip to Cape Reinga, Ninety-Mile Beach and make a stop at the Swamp Kauri Museum. There are so many things to do and places to go.
