“Thank you to Willem and Ellis for a lovely stay in their home. The house was close to central Auckland with easy access to other areas in Auckland. We found the house very clean and well organised. The garden was lush and very relaxing and private. We found the house set up well, with helpful instructions and neighbour. We recommend Willem and Ellis' home and had a very pleasant stay. On returning to our home we found it well looked after and very clean, and the garden improved under their care.”

“Our house exchange with Willem & Ellis in Mission Bay was a great experience. They were both friendly and helpful in arranging the exchange of our houses and cars. We met them at the airport on their arrival in Australia to swap information about our properties. We found their home clean and comfortable, even nicer than the photos, in a quiet area of Mission Bay with a very pleasant garden. On our arrival back home in Noosa, Australia we found our home just as we had left it with the advantage of no newspapers lying about and the garden all tidy. Thank you, Anne & Brian”
Where is it?
Mission Bay is well known for its beach and almost mediterranean atmosphere and outdoor sea-side lifestyle in summer with many small restaurants and its own movie theatre. It is a 20 minutes walk (5 minutes by car) to the sea and restaurants and cinema or to the next sea-side bays of Kohimarama and St Heliers. From Central Auckland, motorways or more scenic secondary roads lead you East, North, South and West if you want to explore the Auckland area with its vinyards, many lovely bays and walking tracks everywhere. The Coromandel Peninsula is about 1.5 hours away. If you want to explore the wider North Island, it takes only around 3 hours to Taupo (trout fishing and skiing) and Rotorua (volcanic geysers etc.) in the centre of the North Island or to Whangarei in the North (deep sea fishing and scuba diving at the world heritage marine reserve "The Poor Knights"). Many coach and boat tours or harbour trips depart from Auckland. They take you for shorter or longer harbour trips or scenic trips all over the North and/or the South Island.
