Upstairs: The living areas are open plan with kitchen, dining area and lounge (with balconies). Also on this floor is the laundry and access to the fenced backyard with deck and garden. This is a great BBQ entertainment area, safe and secure for children. There is a master bedroom with ensuite and two double bedrooms with access to a bathroom with shower, bath and separate WC.

Downstairs: large bedroom/office with ensuite. This room could sleep up to four people and currently has a bunk with double bed at the bottom and single above. Internal access to a double garage also off street parking for three cars.

Who we are

  1. We are Jeff and Valerie, with adult and teenage children and 3 cats. We are both professionals and enjoy travelling when able to get away. We have not done a home exchange before but this year we did swap homes with like-minded friends in another part of New Zealand and it was brilliant.

    Jeff and I plan to travel more especially with all three of his children having moved to Bristol, UK in the last 2 years. Hence our trip to the UK in July/August 2008 and our wish to spend at a week in Spain or other European destination.
