About our home

Our north-facing home is 5 years old and situated in central Nelson, with a view over the city to the ocean. The house is double glazed, well insulated, and centrally heated. There are four bedrooms (two double bedrooms with en-suites, and two single bedrooms with bunks) and an office, with an imac, wireless broadband, and a fax/B&W laser printer. The large section has lovely gardens, three vegetable plots, and many citrus and fruit trees, as well as plenty of outdoor decking, outdoor furniture, and bar-b-q. There is a double garage with internal access, modern appliances, and wide French doors in the kitchen and lounge that open fully to the outside deck and lovely views. The house is private and quiet, with friendly neighbors. It's a comfortable, sunny, light-filled home that is great for relaxing and enjoying meals, inside or outside, with friends and family.


More about us

  1. We are Aaron and Annabel, a married couple with three children aged 7 to 12. Our backgrounds are in geology and radiography, but we now run an online scientific editing business, serving clients in Asia and Europe. We run and cycle, and play music (Annabel plays jazz saxophone, and our children play piano and cornet). We are New Zealanders, but lived overseas for 10 years until 2001, including time in Japan, the UK, and Australia. We are new to home exchange, and look forward to some great traveling and to providing a great experience for visitors to Nelson.

Where is it?


Situated low on a hillside, just 5-10 mins walk to the center of town, with many character houses around. Nelson is the sunshine capital of New Zealand, with great swimming beaches and rivers, many fine cafes and restaurants, art galleries, and wineries. Within an hours drive, you can find mountains, the Marlborough Sounds, three national parks, lakes, great mountain bike trails, many fine walks. Nelson is fun for kids, and is a favorite summertime holiday spot.
