Our home

Our home is a family home set up on a hill with lovely views, lots of room to spread out and relax. One of the two living rooms opens out onto the deck with a barbeque eating area and a spa pool.
We have two children (one and five years) so we have one bedroom set up for a baby with cot and changing facilities and the other has two beds, (one high so not suitable for very young child). The other bedrooms both have double beds (one ensuite may be in by christmas!).
For the kids there is a playroom, sandpit, swings, trampoline, and a big garden. (Casper the pony could be available).
The Kitchen has only just been put in so has all mod cons (including the expresso machine).
There is an option of a Toyota estima car (seats up to eight people).
We have six acres,horses, cows, sheep, chooks etc (all will be looked after by friends) and a veggie garden (help yourself!).

Who we are

  1. Hi we are Andrew and Beth and we moved over to New Zealand from England five years ago, and love it here. We own a couple of businesses and have two children aged one and five. We are hoping to take the children back to England for Christmas (ideally Kent) to let them meet family particularly their Grandmother who is 86 and can't make it over here.
    We haven't exchanged before but think it would be great to give it a try as we are definitely not a family keen on package holidays or hotels.

    If we can make the Christmas trip to England it would be great but England in the winter is not really the perfect time.

    So we would also look at going anywhere interesting and warm probably between April and June 2007 for the 'proper' family holiday.

    We hope we would be considerate 'exchangers' and would like to contact a similar family as we love our home!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a quiet friendly rural area just on the outskirts of New Plymouth city. The area is famous for it's sea, black sand beaches, surf and mountain (Mount Taranaki). The city and sea are less than ten minutes away and the mountain half an hour (although it looks a lot closer). Locally there are museums, great restaurants, boat trips, outdoor adventures, and as with all New Zealand it has amazing country and bush with rivers clean enough to swim in.
The Island is comparatively small with great places to visit though it takes a while with the road system here (try the Awakino Gorge!)
Auckland and Wellington have all the usual adventure parks, or go over to the East Coast and swim with the dolphins.
