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: 26691

We are a professional couple in our 60's and would like to swap our 4 - 5 bedroom beachfront home. We have 3 adult daughters who live away from Gisborne and we love to visit them when we can. We are both very outdoorsy, my husband and I both enjoy water sports ie surfing, boating as well as walking, biking, and golf. We are both fit and very tidy and would expect whoever came into our home to treat it with respect as we would their home!
