Our home

This is our own standalone home in the Bay of Islands.We face north so the house is sunny and warm and will give you great views over the Bay and over the bush Kiwi reserve down to the marina.The house is very comfortable open plan with 2 sitting areas,one with a 50inch TV DVD and Bose stereo, dining and modern kitchen with bar.The bedrooms each have an ensuite (shower & toilet)plus queen size beds and TV. There is also an office with scanner, printer, fax and wireless broadband access. There is a studio apt. below the house where we would put our own personal effects but would usally be unoccupied.Local websites of interest .
We are happy for people to bank their exchange. Our home can be available during our summer months

Who we are

  1. We are Lance&Christine Gladding aged 70&60 resp.Retired moved from Auckland N.Z.s largest city 12 years ago for the lifestyle,ran our own business and sold 2 yrs ago now spend our time sailing,skiing and travelling.Our yacht is a 12metre live aboard which we would use during your stay.We spent 3 months in europe during the summer of 2005,6 weeks cruising the canals aboard a 10 metre canal boat in France the rest of the time touring in a rental car into Italy and back into France. In 2008 we returned to europe for another 3 months and did 2 home-swaps, 1 in Umbria & the other in Chinon France both were quite delightful also we have since exchanged in the USA Canada, Quebec and Maui and convinced us to do it again but would also look at Australia in the future.We would prefer a non-simultaneous exchange as we can use the boat when you use our home,or stay at our cottage in Wanaka,(our South Island) and you may not wish to exchange during our winter.
