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: 26295

We are a working couple (my husband is a teacher and I am a quantity surveyor) with two adult working children (19 and 22) whom will occasionally join us if they have a leave break. Our son still lives at home with us, so if not travelling with us will stay with his Grandparents. We are quiet, non smokers who did a home swap approx 15 years ago in Queensland with our then young children which was fantastic. Due to the current travel restrictions we thought it might be a good option to travel around New Zealand on our holidays . We have a cat Charlie who will require feeding however we could put him in a cattery if required. My husband loves fishing, and I love reading a book looking at a beautiful view. When our children travel with us they love outdoor activities and love the beach, biking and are adrenaline junkies. Ideally short weekend breaks would need to be closer (coromandel/taupo) and we are open to ideas for a longer period of up to one - two weeks.
