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: 4210

We’re a family of 5, three boys 3, 8 & 9 who just love going to new places with activities. We're educating the older boys about other cities within school holidays. Following maps, indulging in top kids attractions, learning history, playing with other kids & excercise. For parents, it’s also visiting old friends, returning to favourite haunts, and trying to have a break! Currently focused on staying in central Auckland for the Sept/October school holidays, where we originally lived & worked. We will leave your home in the same good condition.
