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: 23342

I'm a Far Northerner born and bred but have lived around the South Pacific for most of my life, and have been home in Ahipara for the last 4 years.. The Ninety Mile Beach literally at my gate has kept alive my Ocean-life soul and I have been sharing this amazi g location for the last couple of yrs through Air BnB with travelers from NZ and around the world, but now I want to get out and explore more of NZ's coasts and am keen to do so through House swapping :) My work in property maintenance allows some flexibility so I'm open to travel outside public or normal school holidays too.. So my fur-baby and I are looking to share our home with other pet-friendly families around NZ

Property description and facilities

This 130+ yr old restored Kauri Villa sits right at the base of the Ninety Mile Beach (literally at the edge of the front lawn) on a large section so there's plenty of space for cars, boat trailers or tents if nec..

12 ft high kauri ceilings make this cozy house feel airy and the beachy decor encourage relaxed comfortable living.
Hardwood floors through mean your dog is as welcome and no fuss as he/she would be in your own home, and the upper lawn area that leads up onto the balcony is fenced so your dog can enjoy indoor/outdoor living too without risk of wandering off..
Ahipara is famous for great lefts @ Shippies, Peaks, Maukies 1 & 2, Blue house (Tauroa) mostly with winter swells, and in summer can be a great gentle family beach along the 90 Mile too..
There's beach access 200m from the gate to launch the boat. or set the torpedo anywhere out front or from further up the beach (take your pick.. theses actually 68 miles - not 90.. sorry)
There's a local cafe, take away, a dairy and petrol station, and a bottle shop right here in the village, or in 20 mins you're in Kaitaia with all the usual Grocery/ hardware/sporting supplies/cafes/post offic/banks/warehouse/hospital/mechanics/and a Sat Markets etc...
Go horse riding up the beach, hire paddle boards or blow carts, play golf, day trip to the Cape or over to the Hokianga for Tane Mahuta (ancient Kauri forests) or head east and spend the day in Paihia or Kerikeri.... the Far Nth surrounds you..
