About our home

Our house is situated 5 mins from the small township of Waiuku, 10 mins from Pukekohe, and around 1 hour from central Auckland. The west coast (ocean beach) and Manukau Harbour are about 15 mins away. It is a 4-5 bedroom house on 4 acres of land, with a pond, and is very comfortable.
Trish and I both work, she works for the Justice Dept and I am an earthmoving contractor. I was born in the UK and following a 6 week holiday we had there in 2007 we both feel we would like to spend 6 months living there from April-May 2011.
We will be able to make a car available for anyone we swap with. This is our first time doing this but I thought it may work out well if we can find a house in the UK and save on accomodation costs.


More about us

  1. We are both aged in our 50's, love travelling, and thought we could try an overseas adventure before we get too ancient! We are hoping to get some work wherever we get to in the UK (I was born in Essex and have relatives there). Just doing it for fun.

Where is it?


We live in a rural area, the nearest neighbour is about 200 yards away, and we have an orchard on the other boundary. Our property is all grass, rolling slope, and we have a few cows to keep the grass down. There is a pond in front of the house, and lots of trees on our place.
