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...

About us

Member ID: 24329

We are a couple living on a 12 acre lifestyle block just outside of Arrowtown. Live outdoorsy lifestyles and spend a lot of time biking, tramping and fishing. While we love it down south, we don't seem to get the boat out to the ocean enough so looking for swaps anywhere along the coast. Have three kids with us part time so may be with us depending on the swap period. Also have two outside- dogs who would ideally be allowed to travel with us and be kept in the backyard during our stay.

Property description and facilities

The property is a 12 acre lifestyle block on the Crown Terrace overlooking Arrowtown, with spectacular views of the Remarakables, Crown Peak and Coronet mountain ranges. You get the best of both worlds in this location as it a perfect mix of a rural farm-stay and action filled Queenstown Lakes holiday.

The residence is a unique indoor-outdoor living style with three 'pods' joined by a large covered pergola with dinning table and rustic fire place. The first pod is the master bedroom/toilet and large wardrobe, the second is the kitchen/lounge/TV room and the third is the guest/children bedrooms and another full bathroom. Separate to the main residence is a laundry room/yoga/exercise room complete with large screen TV and wifi.

The surrounding property has a large veggie garden (that you are welcome to), chickens, grazing cattle and the odd free range rabbit. There are also some fruit trees that may be producing during your stay. The drinking water is bore fed from mountain snow melt and may be the purest, most delicious water you will ever taste. There is plenty to do and see in and around the property and if you run out of things to do, its only a 10min drive to Arrowtown and 15 - 20 into Frankton and Queesntown.

Pets to care for at this property

There may be pets to care for on this property.

4 cows in the paddock with no care necessary - just let us know if they escape and/or the water source stops running. Both highly unlikely!

There are some free range chickens on the property that will need to be fed. Trade off is more eggs than you can eat! They are fine to be left for 2-3 days w/o food if you are going on an overnight elsewhere.

There are also two super friendly cats - Mr Wills and River. They are more like dogs than cats. They are fine outside and just need their food bowls topped up on a regular basis. Also fine to leave for a night or two by themselves if you leave a generous amount of biscuits.
