Our home

We have a lovely modern 4 bedroom house with a formal living area (where the entrance is located), and family (living room) in an open plan style which connects to our kitchen and dining area. The living area is separated from our backyard through sliding doors where we have an outdoor setting with barbeque and garden. Like most New Zealand homes, our house is all on one level so it is excellent for young families or elderly people. From our family room, there is a passage way which connects the four bedrooms. The first, which is our guest room has a Queen sized bed and is where our computer (with internet connection) is located. Our WC and bathroom are separate from each other (the bathroom has both shower and bath). The second bedroom belongs to our son Jason, is smallest and has a single bed and dressing table. There is a single wardrobe in this room. The next bedroom along belongs to our son Michael, and is larger with another single bed and large cabinet plus an inbuilt double wardrobe. The master bedroom has a king sized waterbed with a walk-in wardrobe and separate en-suite with a shower and WC. We have an integral garage (with remote controlled door) which can accommodate two cars and this is where our washing machine and dryer are located. Our home is approximately eight years old.

Who we are

  1. We have four in our family: Erik (45), Theresa (37), Jason (7) and Michael (5). Erik is a Shipping Agent and Theresa works and studies part-time. We both enjoy exercise – Erik runs daily, and Theresa is a member of the local gym. Michael began school this February and joined Jason at a local primary school. We enjoy being active, camping, swimming and taking long walks in the native bush. Erik is Dutch and met Theresa in the Netherlands while she was working there. We are travelling to the Netherlands this June for the first time as a family, and unfortunately are non-negotiable with our dates as the tickets are booked and paid for. We have never exchanged houses before, so this is a new experience for us. We would take good care of your home as we would our own. We are more than happy to provide further information about ourselves, and I am sure that you would find that we are considerate and tidy house-guests. Erik's Mum still lives in Rotterdam, and would be happy to meet and provide a personal reference.
