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: 26079

I am a former nurse,international humanitarian and consultant and now author, but have an absolute ongoing need to explore. To see new things, feel new winds and touch new emotions and smell new ground. I returned to NZ five years ago after being overseas for 25 years and perhaps don't know the country as I ought. But you don't really get this from a camper van or a flying visit. I house sat in France one year and thought it was wonderful..I got to know the village..language and food in a way that was meaningful and exciting. I have two well behaved cocker spaniels who accompany me everywhere and I am clean, tidy and respectful and would treat your home as I expect mine to be treated. I would like to swap my house with someone or a couple who will appreciate living in Nelson and feel assured that our swap is more than just about location.

Location description and facilities

Nelson is one of the best places in NZ to visit I look across my balcony to the mountains, the bush, Abel Tasman and some of the best hiking tracks and beaches in the world. everything is accessible and the scenery spectacular. Town is six minutes have Golden Bay just over the hill..vineyards, the Marlborough sounds around the corner.. and if you want to rest..well the weather is the best in New Zealand. no matter what time of year. We have farmers markets and you can sample everything from the best sourdough to real french pate and with a glass of pinot ...what else is there in life I ask you!!
