Who we are

  1. Craig and I are New Zealanders, both professionals.I am a lawyer, Craig is a business director and urban planner. We have five children, most are now all adults, with only one still at home, aged 15. We love to travel, and enjoy annual overseas adventure travel, involving cycling, skiing or hiking. We have done 4 home exchanges in Europe, Australia and USA.These have been very successful,and we particularly enjoy a more familar setting of a home when travelling when our children were younger and came with us. We are open to visiting any countries as we are keen travellers and explorers of this wonderful planet-surprise us!

  2. We love well-designed urban gardens, art, and danish furniture, so our home includes all of these. We also love good coffee, so we have a fantastic expresso machine.We have a wonderful burmese cat called Chino, and very cute cavoodle dog called Charlie. Our cat is part of the package for exchange, but he is very self managing! Our dog we send away to stay with friends.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The neighourhood is "up market" and popular holiday destination, very safe and great beach 2 mins flat walk away. There are lots of fabulous cafes and a cinema a stone's throw walk from our house, a local park on our street and our famous surf beach(Mt.Maunganui) and walks nearby. Rotorua Lakes and forests for boating, hikes and mountain biking close by. Mount Maunganui is regularly voted top NZ holiday destination and best beach for good reason. It is a great place to have a holiday. Tauranga is a great city to base yourselves as a very central locality in North Island of NZ to visit the rest of the Country-2 1/2 hours to Auckland, Coromandel, Taupo (great trout flyfishing), and 45 mins from Rotorua.
