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: 24126

We are a professional couple in our fifties who are keen to spend some time in central Otago this summer. We can work remotely - and want to explore the region in our weekends as Otago is home to some magnificent tramping and many other outdoor activities. We would care for your home as though it were our own. Over the years we have had various cat/housesiiters living in our place so we well understand the importance of knowing that there are reliable people in our home. It's the first time we have tried a houseswap.

Location description and facilities

Our house is on the lower slopes of the Port Hills with stunning view across the city. Glorious sunrises and sunsets can often be seen. The Port Hills have many walking and mountain biking tracks including the Adventure Park around the corner, and the nearby river. It's easy to get into the city centre and enjoy all the usual activities of a city. Christchurch is well on its way to recovering from the earthquakes with many new buildings and facilities.
