Who we are

  1. We are Colin and Hilary. Colin is a retired Engineer and Hilary is a retired Medical typist.
    We have two adult children. Our son lives in Argentina and our daughter and granddaughter's live in Auckland, New Zealand.
    We emigrated to New Zealand in 1982. We have spent five years in Australia; one of which, was spent travelling around Oz in a converted Toyota Coaster bus. We would like to travel a little while longer and after a very successful swap for one year in cheshire, we are keen to house swap again. We are careful with our home and furnishings and would take equal care of your home.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Whakatane is situated on the mouth of a river in the Eastern Bay of Plenty. It is a medium sized town with very good facilities. Shops, restaurants, airport, hospital, clubs, cinema, swimming pool, Golf course and lovely safe beach at nearby Ohope. We have annual fishing tournaments, very good monthly craft markets and stunning bush walks. We moved here from England in 1982, and still can't believe how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
Rotorua (Geyser's and bubbling mud pools)is just over an hours drive away, passing beautiful lakes and geothermal areas on the way. Tauranga and Mt. Maunganui are an hours drive away along the ocean road and through Kiwi Fruit Country (Te Puke). The shopping and night-life in Tauranga and the Mount is extremely good.
