About our home

This modern and stylish house, close to the beach, has open plan living which opens out onto a large sunny deck with glimpses of the sea. 4 bedrooms are 2 doubles and 2 twins, which have trundle beds, therefore the house can easily accommodate 8. The appliances and fixtures are of a high standard. This is our holiday home and as a result we have resisted installing TV and broadband, but would be happy to do so if an exchanger requested it. There is also a BBQ, and play area in the garden with a trampoline and playhouse with slide.


More about us

  1. We are a family of 4, originally from Scotland, but have lived in New Zealand for 8 years. Our children are Maisie,9, and Mitchell 7. My husband Alan is a consultant psychiatrist, and I am a stay at home mum. Alan is due to take a sabbatical from work next year and we would be keen to swap for up to six months between feb14 and aug14. This could be anywhere, as long as a major city was close by, as my husband will have to do some work and research. We are currently thinking Canada, USA, Australia or the UK, but would consider anywhere. We have a well behaved cocker spaniel which we would be keen for you to look after, but would make other arrangements if necessary. We would offer pet care in return, and would of course treat your home with the greatest respect.
