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: 23339

We are a middle aged couple, who own their own business in beautiful Dunedin. We have a beautifully well behaved fur family and we love to travel up north to catch up with friends and family. We also like wild, out of the way places in the South Island. We like the quiet things in life, love travelling, walking, exploring. We are not big party people or drinkers, we are non smokers too, and no children. Just the dogs. We have traveled with our fur family throughout NZ, and we treat every place we stay in with respect.

Property description and facilities

Our property is located in Waitati, which is 15 minutes drive away from Dunedin. Waitati is a lovely seaside town. Our house is a cosy, quaint house with a log burner which heats the whole house. We are situated in a quiet street and our house overlooks the estuary, which is a short walk down the road, or across the paddocks if the horses are not in there. It’s a very comfortable house with all the amenities you need for a home away from home. It is our home and we love it! Its clean, quiet, peaceful and idyllic and you are certainly surrounded by green!. However, it is quirky and quaint and is not a mansion. There are some uneven floors (due to parts of it being 100 years old) and some mismatched doors.
There is an abundance of bird life around, as the eco sanctuary is just up the road, so if you're into birds then this place will be heaven. We have two cats which will need looking after as well as 6 chickens. We are happy to welcome well behaved and cat friendly doggies here.
