Property features

Who we are

  1. Our names are Grant and Kathy. We are both in our fifties and have lived in Nelson for 15 years. I am a retired Superintendent in the NZ Police. We are first time home swappers and love the idea of staying in another country to meet people and see another part of the world. Our two daughters are both at work in Wellington and Auckland and may be able to accompany us for a short period.
    We would appreciate being able to correspond with our counterparts to make arrangements as far ahead as possible.
    We are both active cyclists and enjoy theatre, swimming, rowing, fishing and dining out.
