About our home

A 2 storey house, we are surrounded by big trees on a quarter acre section overlooking school grounds and are at the end of a cul de sac, so very private. The ground floor contains a big bed sitting room (newly renovated) with double bed and bathroom and was our granny flat for many years. Downstairs is also our large office. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, bathroom, sep. wc and open plan living room/kitchen/dining. Theres a separate laundry (utility) and a deck off the lounge overlooking the trees for outdoor dining/living. The lawns are mown regularly by a contractor.


More about us

  1. We are semi retired from our engineering/management consultancy, and we spend as much time as possible on our trailer sailer boat. We want to spend more extended time in the UK from which we emigrated 30 years ago, to visit friends and relatives. We enjoy people, travel, music, books and are involved with voluntary activities as well. We have not done any swaps so far but hope to try it soon!

Where is it?


We are only 10 minutes walk to shopping centre with buses at the end of the road into the city centre. We are 10 minutes by car from the university, there are 12 kms of river walks locally,beautiful gardens. We are 45 minutes from a surf beach at Raglan, Auckland, Rotorua and the beautiful Pacfic coast beaches are all a day trip, so very central. There are several geothermal hot pools not far away.
