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: 8954

We're a family with 2 young boys (aged 4 & almost 2 ) who love the great outdoors and exploring new places. We love entertaining when at home and enjoying our beautiful location spending time at the beach, boating and walks. We've completed one exchange already with a family from Arrowtown which went really smoothly and keen to explore more of our beautiful country.

Location description and facilities

We have the best of both worlds with being 35 mins drive from Auckland City ( and 35 mins by ferry which leaves from Pine Harbour 5 mins down the rd ), a few mins walk from stunning Maraetai Beach( we're located on the hill looking down to the beach and sea ) and we have the countryside over our back fence. Maraetai is a small coastal town on the stunning Pohutukawa Coast, with the beach, many coastal walks and Omana regional park as your playground . We often have Orca and dolphins cruising the coastline, and if you like fishing or simply being in the water - this is the place for you !

Waiheke Island is directly opposite Maraetai and we enjoy many weekends exploring the bays on our boat. Waiheke has so much to offer from Vineyards, Art Gallerys to Ziplining for the more adventurous. You can catch a ferry to Waiheke from Bucklands Beach which is 20 mins away.

Close towns of Clevedon ( amazing Farmers Market on a Sunday ), Botany and Howick offer everything you need great shopping mall, movies, restaurants and Auckland City is also really close to explore the beautiful harbour, viaduct with its restaurants, bars, playgrounds, shops, galleries, Sky Tower, Museum, Zoo etc!

We love our slice of paradise and hope you do too.
