About our home

Our warm, modern and inviting home is a typical 3-bedroom residence situated on an large sized block of land of some 1400+ sq.m on a quiet urban street.

The main Bedroom and Lounge are at the front of the house while another Bedroom, Kitchen/Dining and separate bathroom & toilet are at the rear. The attached rear deck has gas-fired barbeque and the whole area overlooks a private, secure and fully fenced rear yard of gardens and lawn.
Garaging is internal with access to the house through the lower living area that includes the 3rd Bedroom with the separate bathroom & toilet.
The Laundry and another separate toilet is located off the internal garage.

We like nothing better, than to relax outdoors on the deck after a BBQ with a glass of chilled wine or a beer. We hope that you can see yourselves doing likewise. Enjoy!

** Either of our Hyundai i45 Sedan or Toyota Qualis Wagon cars could be available for use as part of the exchange.


More about us

  1. We are Declan (70 - Australian) and Joan (71 a New Zealander), married, retired professionals (Accountant & Personal Secretary) who enjoy travelling, going to new places and meeting people.

    We have done a number of home swaps including a double home swap of almost 6 months into Switzerland & England during the winter of 2006/07, then a 6 weeks swap into southern France in 2009, another 6 weeks to Arizona in the USA in early 2012 and our latest 3 month double home swap to Sussex in England during the early part of 2014.

    We are keen to do it again to explore the possibilities of what we know to be an exciting way of experiencing other countries & cultures.

    We're looking for a swap to England again for mid 2016 to attend a niece's long awaited wedding at the end of July, hopefully somewhere around the Newmarket area but any part of the UK will be considered.

    We would not be adverse to swapping to another country in Western Europe so we could 'commute' to the wedding.

    Any and all suggestions and or offers will be considered and promptly answered.

Where is it?


Levin is a rural township on the north island situated some 85kms from the national capital of Wellington and easily assessible in an hour. Relatively quiet with most of the usual amenities of rural towns but near other towns on the Kapiti Coast and in the Manawatu district.

We recently moved to NZ [Joan's birth country] from Australia and we're loving every minute of the more settled and peaceful environment.

Horse racing abounds in and around Levin as does golf with numerous tracks and courses in almost all the nearby towns both small and large.

With NZ being small and islands, beaches and water are never very far away similarly mountains, ski fields, bush walking & rambling, wineries and numerous activites are all here for you to enjoy.
