Our home

We live on Waiheke Island, a commuter island in the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland. We have fruit trees, berries, an organic kitchen garden, roses and meadows of grasses and wild flowers. There are three garden tables with seating for ten, six or two.

It takes 35 minutes ferry ride from Auckland city and we are situated five minutes drive away in a quiet bay.

Our house is a two bedroom home with carpets, wood burner fireplace, heating and plenty of ventilation for warm sunny days. We have two bedrooms accommodating two couples, and a large sofa that can substitute as a bed if needs be.
We also have a studio connected to the house, suitable for a couple. It is self contained with bathroom, kitchenette/laundry room, library wall and infra-red sauna. Sliding doors to deck step directly out to the garden.

This studio will only be available on request, photos will follow. If it works for us we can offer our home as a as a three bedroom home.

Who we are

  1. We are a kiwi couple looking at house swaps for the first time.. Andrew works in IT, I design and make garments from silk kimonos. As you will see, Andrew is a great gardener. we both enjoy biking and hiking. We are able to reside in the UK and visit as often as we can as our three children have flown the coop to London long ago.

    We URGENTLY require a house swap near Twickenham as our first grandchild is due mid February and we are keen to stay nearby our daughter and husband.
    Anyone looking for sunshine, beaches, fine wine, good kiwi fare and hospitality, contact us please.

    Megan and Andrew

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are within easy walking distance to three beautiful beaches, restaurants and vineyards. If it works to exchange cars then a tour further around the island will surprise and delight.

There are various hiking opportunities through native bush and along coastal walkways with many a vineyard or beach to stop and refuel at.

Auckland city centre is only 35 minutes ferry ride away.

Google Waiheke Island and you will see the rave reviews!
