About our home

There are two homes available, depending on your needs and the time of your visit. Our main home is in Sandringham, Auckland, and is only 10kms from central Auckland. A comfortable family home, it can sleep up to 6 people (one bedroom has a single bed and sofa bed) and has a private garden with a deck area for outdoor dining.
There is good public transport nearby and it is easy to get around the city and surrounds from this base.
There is a great selection of cheap eateries nearby, including both Indian and Chinese restaurants. Eden Park, the venue for both rugby and cricket tests, is within walking distance.
There is the option of either using this place and / or our holiday home (bach) on the stunningly beautiful Waiheke Island. Our bach is a basic and comfortable house with two bedrooms, and able to sleep up to 6 comfortably. There is a well equipped kitchen, a lounge with wonderful sea views, one double bed and four single beds (including a bunk), and a large garden for the kids to explore. Put the hammock up, get the brick barbeque going, put the trestle table under the trees, open a bottle of local wine and you'll be in paradise!
Waiheke Island was voted by the Lonely Planet as the fifth best destination in the world to visit in 2016, and it also made Conde Nast's list of Best Islands in the World.
With beautiful swimming beaches a short walk from the house plus a selection of vineyards, restaurants and cafes all within driving distance, you'll be able to explore and enjoy this beautiful island that is only a 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Auckland. Come and discover what all the fuss is about!


More about us

  1. We are a family of four - Alim, myself (Camille) and our two children, both school-aged. We are travelling to Europe this year to show our children where Alim lived as a child, which includes Edinburgh and Rome. We are planning on spending up to two weeks in Edinburgh late June - early July and would love to be able to do a house swap for our time in this city. We are new to house swapping but often let friends and family use our Waiheke bach so are well versed in making our home available to others.
