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: 270

Shane and I have two children. Tim aged 16 and Charlotte aged 16. Shane runs his own business from home and I work as a hospitality tutor here in Auckland. We enjoy doing things as a family and love getting away with our children as much as possible. We love beaches, sun, surf and sand. We enjoy fishing but unfortunately the daily demands of life and raising the children don't leave us with enough time to do this. Our son is heavily involved in Rugby and as he progresses so does his commitment our time running him to and from training and games. I love gardening and am in the process of re-establishing the gardens which flourished as my husband grew up here.

Property description and facilities

We live in Papakura in a rural setting. We have a classic Kiwi quarter acre section with 4 bedroom Bungalow which was built by my husbands parents. Its a true family home complete with pets (a cat named Wiggles who adopted us and a dog named Ben). We are lucky enough to live close to the motorway so Auckland or Hamilton are never far away. Open the front door and we look out at farm land (we are surrounded by farms). The view from our bedroom window and the dinning room is farms and the water as our property is a short walk to the peninsula which leads out to the Manukau Heads.
