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: 5452

Hello Let me introduce Eric, my husband and my self Glenys. I have been a nurse for over 40 years and my husband has been a builder for longer. We are both still working but making sure we have the balance to life with holidays here in NZ and abroad. We have travelled extensively across the south island and are always drawn back down south virtually every year. We love the Americas and have made wonderful friends from our travels. We believe that we are great ambassadors for NZ and great hosts. We love quite and nature and beaches. We are both keen fishing people having fished in Canada, Alaska, Hawaii and San Franscisco, catching different species in each place. We live on a small block of land just out of Auckland but have a lovely holiday house at one of NZ top surf beaches, ( Whangamata) with swimming, tramping, fishing and all water sports at your door step. For exchanges in NZ we would consider a car swap if Nth to Sth. We love and value family time spent together but more difficult as our adult children also globe trot around.
