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...

5 Review overall

We loved our stay in Takapnua at this house. The location was great, just above the beach and near to Devonport. The house was very comfortable and clean and they left our house as they found it which was immaculate. Communication was excellent. All in all a fabulous swap and a wonderful holiday. - Nicky Mcleod - Friday, November 1, 2019

Thanks so much to this family for a great stay in their Auckland home. Excellent communication and the home is so very close to the beach and easy access to the motorway. I highly recommend this house for a swap. They left our house very tidy too! - Angela Craig - Saturday, November 21, 2020

Terrific place to stay. Location was perfect for beach and Takapuna village. House was very comfortable and clean. We had great communication. A glass door broke while we were there and they couldn't have been more reasonable in their handling of that. Our house was immaculate on our return. - Vic Hewson - Monday, November 23, 2020

About us

Member ID: 9087

We are a family of five, our son is twelve years old and daughters are ten and almost eight years old. Dad is a builder. We have two beloved Golden Retrievers, although they will be cared for elsewhere when you stay or when we travel. We love to be outdoors and on the beach, enjoying nature or checking out new playgrounds! We appreciate good food and enjoy spending quality time out as a family. We will be respectful of your home and take great care of it and have faith that you will do the same with ours. We look forward to your enquiry.

Property description and facilities

Kia Ora!

Our home in Takapuna is a comfortable, light and airy five bedroom, two storied house.

We love the location- it is a city escape by the seaside!

It’s a large fenced property with deck surrounding half the upper level with bbq available. In the garden there is a wooden fort with slide, swings, monkey bars, trampoline and a halfpipe skateboard ramp. In the Summer months we also have a Para Rubber pool which will be up. There is also a hot outdoor shower for post-beach excursions. We have a super king bed in the master bedroom, double room with ensuite downstairs, two king single rooms with pull out singles underneath and one small bunk room with king single mattresses. Our family bathroom has a deep spa bath and separate shower.

We are just 200m away from Takapuna Beach and less than a kilometre to Takapuna shops and restaurants. Central Auckland is just 10 km away. Several bus stops are nearby.

We look forward to your enquiry.

Location description and facilities

Our home is just 200m from Takapuna Beach. This beach and seaside suburb is vibrant and just keeps getting better and better. The dining options on offer are fantastic, there's plenty of stylish shops and just recently a wonderful new playground has opened up on the beach reserve to thrill the kids too.
The view of Rangitoto Island and other Hauraki Gulf Islands can be enjoyed while walking along the beach, with glimpses from our place too.
There is so much to enjoy about The City of Sails and many great day trips to be had...
