Our home

Situated in a popular ski resort and summer town, Wanaka is home to 7000 residents and boasts the most beautiful lake and mountain views imaginable. Recently named as one of the top ten world-wide holiday destinations, the Wanaka locals are not at all surprised.

The lake is perfect for swimming in the summer and is only a 2 minute drive, or 20 minute walk away. To reach the Wanaka township from our home, choose between a 30 minute lakeside walk or a 3 minute drive.

The house is sunny and spacious, and our hens offer fresh eggs each day. During the summer and autumn, vegetables, fruit and nuts are plentiful in the garden. Depending on the time of year, help yourselves to tomatoes, fennel, herbs, corn, peas, apples, feijoas, walnuts, cherries and heaps more. There is a 2 bedroom cottage which works well for non-simultaneous exchanges.

Pickle Jones, the cat, is the friendliest feline believable and loves his tummy being rubbed.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a 3-piece family on a 3-acre section. We have one adult daughter and we (her parents) are both in our 50s. Pete is a business owner and Lynne is a music festival director. We enjoy snowboarding, gardening, furniture-building, music, vineyards, cooking and eating! We are keen for home exchanges in Europe, South America and Oceania. The exchange need not be simultaneous as we have a self-contained 2-bedroom cottage on the property which is totally set up for visitors.
    We have enjoyed ten wonderful home exchanges - all around the world. We love taking care of any pets, and will always take the utmost care of your property.
