Our home

Our home is a lovely 3 bedroom home in a quite sea-side suburb north of Auckland.

We are 500m flat walk from Red Beach (see photo) and ~200m from Orewa beach and estuary and another 10 beaches on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula within 5-20 minute drive, and North Shore beaches further afield.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed, downstairs is a queen bed in one room and a fold-out double bed/couch in the other. There is also a baby cot and a highchair etc if needed.

For use there is a sea kayak, 10ft aluminium sailing dinghy that doubles as a fishing dinghy with a 3.3hp outboard, 4x bikes, fishing rods, wetsuits, body board, hiking gear etc.

We have a large backyard with organic vege garden and fruit trees. There is a large back deck to enjoy the sunshine year round.

Broadband internet

2 cars can be included in the exchange - Honda CRV 4WD and a Toyota Starlet

We have a black Siamese cat (Obi) that needs feeding (food included). However we can give you contacts for people to feed her if you want to go away. She is adorable, affectionate and competely no trouble.

Who we are

  1. We are a couple in our mid thirties with one 20 month old daughter. Paul is a police officer and Gen was a project manager until Mila arrived.
    This is our first Home Exchange and we are looking forward to giving this a try. We love to travel and this seems a great way to do it.
    We will give our exchange partner every help we can to allow them to enjoy their stay here in NZ.
