Our home

We live in a 3 bedroom brick house two streets walk back (400m) from the beach in Auckland on a large section. The house has 3 bedrooms, a bright and spacious living room, 2 bathrooms and a great outdoor deck for the enjoyment of the summer you will experience.

The house also has a separate fully equipped kitchen, and laundry with a washer and dryer etc, living room, dining room, etc.

Being summer you will often utilise the huge sunny deck, the perfect place for sunbathing or for a romantic dinner or barbeque into the evening, or just hanging out on the outdoor furniture.

  1. We are Daren and Kathryn, a couple in our thirties (non-smokers). Daren is a Senior Technology Manager for a US company and Kathryn is a Lawyer General Counsel for an Infrastructure company, and we are looking for an overseas adventure! We enjoy dining out, traveling, the beach and the sights of Europe. We are extremely clean, responsible and tidy and we'll treat your home with the utmost respect. We haven't exchanged homes before but we are very enthusiastic and excited about the possibility of experiencing a month in a European city. We also love living in such a fabulous city like Auckland - near the beach, and we'll be more than delighted to provide you advice about the best places to visit and the best places for eating out.

    Our preferred dates to travel are Christmas/Jan/Feb 09 for approximately a 4 week duration.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is in a very safe neighborhood, very well located in central Auckland city, ten minutes from the city centre, and a 5-minute walk (400m) to three beaches (photos attached), with many more additional beaches only 30 minutes drive in and around Auckland.

Mission Bay has a substantial number of restaurants, a cinema,and bars etc all within walking distance, across the road from the beach. The house itself is situated 2 streets back from the beach in a quiet tranquil suburban street.

A bus stop with several bus lines to the city centre and to Auckland's main attractions is just at the end of the street. On the other hand, if you prefer to go by taxi, it will cost you about $20NZ to go into the city.

We would recommend hiring a car for any of the wonderful and scenic, outside of the city excursions.
