About our home

Our house is a clean and comfortable older styled family home. The kitchen/dining area looks out to the back garden and surrounding trees and hills. The large (1/4 acre) property backs onto a river with a swimming hole and rope swing for the kids. There are 3 bedrooms, 1 with queen size bed and other 2 with doubles. You feel like you are in the country but it is only a 10 minute walk to the town centre and shops.


More about us

  1. Ali and I are in our early 60's and have lived in our family home for the past 23 years. Ali works in mental health and I work as a Hydrologist for the local council. We have only recently discovered Europe and would like to see more of it by bike and public transport. It would be nice to correspond with prospective home exchangers so we can give them a better idea of what Nelson has to offer. We are also a little flexible with timing as we could live with my mother if the persons using our house arrive when we are still in Nelson.

Where is it?


We live in a nice part of Nelson with established older homes along a tree lined road. There are many nice walks near by, including a 20 minute walk up a hill to the centre of New Zealand and views over Nelson City and Tasman Bay. We are at the gateway to a plethora of mountain bike tracks and other outdoor pursuits. The local golf course is 5 minutes drive up the river and there are plenty more to choose from in the Nelson area. Tasman Bay offers ideal sailing conditions, swimming, wind surfing, fishing and other water sports. There are also plenty of local cafes and restaurants to choose from.
