Our home

We are very lucky to have this lovely home in Castor Bay. It is a cedar wood house with lots of character. We are about 4 minutes walk from the beach. The house has 2 open fires, a family room with kitchen, a mezzanine/guest room, a formal living room, a semi-seperate tv room and a gym. There's a heatpump/airco and 4 seperate bedrooms. We have a little creek in the back garden and a reserve next door. It is a very green area and a lovely quite spot yet so close to all amenities.

Who we are

  1. We are Marko (producer in film/advertising), Tess (personal trainer and masseuse), Quinn (8) and Bo (5); a Dutch family living in Auckland for over 12 years now. We enjoy the wonderful lifestyle it offers us. However, with the kids growing up so fast, the homeland and family & friends keep pulling, and we would love the opportunity to have a longer stay over there. So if anyone is interested (esp.longer than 4 weeks) please contact us :-) ! Other than that we are open for any suggestions and times. We are fully flexible as we are both self employed. We'll be new to home exchange but will look after your home as if it was our own. We're very exited about trying this fantastic concept as soon as possible. Also week(end) exchanges within NZlnd sound like a great idea!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are close to Milford. Milford is another little suburb with a modern shopping mall and lots of cafe's and restaurants. Castor bay on the other hand is quiet and "where the locals hang out". So the best of both worlds. There's the gorgeous Pupuke golf course around the corner. You can walk the coast line to other neighbouring beaches and there's the village life of Mairang Bay close by too. The beaches carry on for miles all the way up to Long Bay with it's more rugged beach and great reserve. Then there's Takapuna at 10' drive, with it's library and more shopping and restaurants. Access to the motorway is also 10' away which will take you to Auckland Downtown in about 15 - 20'. Access to the motorway "up north" is also around te corner. Auckland airport is about 45'.
