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...

Property description and facilities

Our unit is situated across the road from popular Pilot Bay & boardwalk with the hot pools just around the corner and there is also a bus stop outside the pools with regular buses into Tauranga or to the supermarket or local mall at Bayfair. A further two hundred metres down the road is our gorgeous ocean beach with multiple cafes & eateries to choose from. All of this is easy flat walking distance from our unit. Undercover car parking at the unit. This unit is suitable for a couple only, unfortunately not children.
