About our home

Nice comfortable and modern home (4 years old) in a quiet and safe neighborhood setting. It has 3 bedrooms (one with an suite) and a study, a nice kitchen and sunny living room with doors opening to a spacious deck. We have a PS 2 and a projector to use as a TV, offering a movie like experience. In the front of the house is a safe area for children to play in between the houses. We have wireless internet connection and a computer to use, and two cars of which one a fully insured station wagon. Our house is really warm, one heater will warm up the whole house if necessary in the evening. As we have small children, there are lots of toys, puzzles, books, DVD's (Dutch:)...) etc available and a sand pit and small slide on the deck. If needed, we can arrange for our cleaners to come in once a week, which costs only $70NZD (about 30 euros) to clean to entire house. We really enjoy living in this house and will look after your home very well too!


More about us

  1. We are a family of four: Cornelis (33), Linda (34), Oliver(almost 3) and Rosalie (3 months). We emigrated to NZ 7 years ago, but go to The Netherlands often to visit family and friends. Last year we did a house swap and loved the experience, comfort and economics of it :)! We are very tidy and will look after your property with the best possible care. If you want, we can offer you the positive references from the families who we swapped with last year! For more info please feel free to visit our family site:

Where is it?


We are located in a nice new settlement toward the West coast, about 15 minutes drive to the City center, or 25 minutes by train (station is in Avondale). Close to many beaches, 10 minutes to the closest one and about 30 minute from beautiful Piha Beach. Also about 15 minutes away from the Waitakere Ranges, a stunning national park with lots of walking tracks to waterfalls etc. 5 minutes from our home is a big shopping center with all the shops you need for grocery, clothes, etc shopping. An ideal base to explore Auckland and beautiful New Zealand!
