Our home

My wife Kate and I own a 3 bedroom plus office stand alone single story house in a gated community Diamond Sands at Papamoa Bay of Plenty New Zealand. The house sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms (2 doubles 1 with 2 beds) and the complex has a swimming pool, gym and sauna and we are 800m from the beach with nice walks in the area. There are no lawns to mow as there is a resident caretaker on site. Two cars are available if required stored in our 2 car garage attached to the house with internal access.
Our only grandchildren live in Folkestone UK. We are looking for a house swap/rent in or around that area for a long term stay in 2015.

Property features

Who we are

  1. Kate and I are retired aged 68 and 70 respectively and have just moved here when our son, his English wife and our 2 grandchildren moved back to the UK earlier this year. Living in a gated community (54 properties) means we have the security of leaving home for extended periods knowing it will be looked after and safe.
    We plan to spend a considerable time in the UK over the next few years visiting them and in 2015 would like to have our own "residence" for some 4-6 months in the period April to Sept that they can come and stay with us.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Papamoa and the Mount Maunganui area adjacent are regarded as one of the premier beach areas in New Zealand. We are 3 hours south of Auckland 1 hour to Rotorua, 2 hours to the Coromandel Peninsular and there are many activities nearby.
The location of our home is in a quiet urban suburb of mainly single storey residences near the beach with good road access to main highways.
