About our home

Our house is located in Parnell Auckland .
Parnell is one of the oldest suburbs in New Zealand .It is close to the city centre with an interesting mix of old established character homes built from 1850 . Located within walking distance of the very quaint Parnell village, the CBD , Newmarket ( the most fashionable shopping area ) the Domain , the museum ,the botanical gardens , the rose gardens and the waterfront . So there could not be a better suburb to establish a base for a tourist wanting to explore Auckland and NZ.
The walks around this area are superb as are the cafes and restaurants. So a great area to explore by foot and stop for a coffee break.

Our house is a 2 storey 1929 arts and crafts home with gorgeous wooden floors and white wood panelled walls . The home has been updated & modernised in keeping with its heritage s but does includes all the latest mod cons . ( including 3 fridges and 2 TVs , & a Bose sound system , European washer /dryer etc. ) Wi-Fi available also.
It has 3 double bedrooms so can accomodate 6 , 2 bathrooms, a formal lounge ,a dining room and TV room off the kitchen . There is a separate laundry.. There is off street parking for 2 cars .
There is a cute outdoor garden area with multiple seating option , additionally there is a large gas barbecue and 2 outdoor gas heaters for use.
Overall A very comfortable house & safe neighbourhood to spend some time in .

We are happy to accomodate a family with children as we are not too precious about our home & only expect the house to be left in the same condition & standard it is found .
There may also be the opportunity to add in the use of a Range Rover 4WD depending on the insurance costs for both parties ?
About us .We are a professional couple . Lorraine is in the fashion industry as an exclusive agent for global brands and Ian a corporate manager .
We are open to any swap & travel opportunites world wide at any time .

We are very happy to supply a list of all the best cafés , restaurants , bars and other great attractions Auckland had to offer to ensure this swap experience is 2nd to none .
