Our home

We have a large and comfortable home located in Auckland's leafy central suburb of Remuera. We have recently renovated the entire outdoor area which includes a large outdoor fireplace surrounded by comfortable outdoor seating to enjoy the climate of Auckland at night. The house is 3 stories, with 4 bedrooms, including the master with ensuite and walk in wardrobe. (with an electrically adjustable Super king bed!) Two children's rooms with King single beds, and also a spare room with a queen size bed. Downstairs the living flows to the outdoor areas - there is a formal lounge, dining room and an open plan kitchen/family room ? these all open out to a flat lawn and landscaped gardens which include a children's play area with fort and monkey bars. It is a comfortable house and is furnished with all the modern conviences including Wireless broadband, Sky TV and a wall hung plasma. We also have views from the upstairs bedrooms to Orakei basin and the Harbour. We also have a holiday home 2 hours north of Auckland - it is a comfortable (but basic) house with a great sea view in Bayly's Beach with a fantastic west coast big beach to play on - we may be able to organise this for your stay as well!

Who we are

  1. We are a young professional family, Kent (40), Tracey (39) and our two daughters Lauren (8) and Cushla (6). We own our own design furniture store in Auckland's Newmarket, and Tracey is a graphic designer who works from home. Tracey is running in this years London Marathon which has been a goal of hers for many years, and we thought we would take a few months out and take our girls to Europe to see the sights. We are traveling between the 5th April 2010 till June 20th 2010, and we would love to organise 2 to 3 house swaps in London/France or Italy for periods of 3-4 weeks each. We're flexible with our itinerary (except for the 25th April 2010 which is marathon day!) We have friends here in New Zealand who have used this website and have had great results so we are hoping to be able to do the same! Send us an email and let us know what you have for us - we'd love to hear from you!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Remuera is one of Aucklands oldest and established leafy suburbs, full of older larger homes on large sites. Our house (down a long shared driveway) is situated 10 minutes from the city and is only minutes to major motorways and the citys many fine beaches. We have lovely parks and cafés all within walking distance. Auckland is a vibrant city to live in ? world class dining and shopping, along with fantastic walks and tramps, surf beaches, sailing or kayaking in the Harbour or enjoying the vineyards of Waiheke Island. Within 3 hours you can be in the Bay of Islands, or down in Rotorua. Or catch a cheap internal flight and go see the magnificent South Island - It's up to you!
