Our home

We built our new home over 2yrs ago & we are thrilled at how it turned out :) From the front door you enter a huge wide hallway that the bedrooms & bathrooms all come off. This leads you down to main living/kitchen area through double doors. There are loads of glass sliders that allow tonnes of natural light & the whole house is double glazed so it is warm all year round. Gas infinite hot water system plus an airconditioner/heat system in living area. The kitchen was designed for entertaining & you will just love how easy this house is to be in. Quality linen & furnishings throughout. The house also has an office & rumpus/music room. Our family are very musical so we have it all - Drums, Guitars, Base, Keyboard & full sound system just for fun ;) There is a spy camera from the living area into the rumpus so you can keep an eye & ear on the kids while they play and you relax in your area. We may lock the office but there is still a computer with internet in the rumpus. Everyone who comes into our home falls in love with it & we know you will too. We have a regular house keeper who costs NZ$90 a week and is very familiar with how things go plus the vehicle may be available if you are ok to drive on the left hand side. We have an Audi A6 or Toyota Estima (7Seater) that you can explore in? We have 2 gorgeous cats that we hope you won't mind feeding? One is pictured on the lounge rug if you look closely ;)

Property features

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 5. I am a NZ born European (who is also a director for our company & accounting as my role) & my husband of 18yrs George is Samoan and the managing director of our telco company. We have 3 great kids aged 14yrs, 11yrs & 9yrs. I have homeschooled my boys for more than 2yrs so I am not nervous about schooling away from home. Plus travel is such a great education in itself :) We have never done a house swap before but we are keen to explore Europe & give it a go. We are very adventurous as a family. New Zealand is a beautiful country with all its 'green & blue' and it would be our pleasure for you to make the VERY most of it :)

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live 45mins from downtown Auckland but you actually won't want to go there much because once you are here on the peninsula you won't want to leave! We are easy walking distance from 2 beaches, the tennis club with park & field are literally out the back gate (costs NZ$5 per hour per player), Gulf Harbour Country Club for you golf lovers & Marina 5 min drive away, Waiwera Thermal pools are a 20mins drive away, Shakespear Regional Park at the end of the peninsula, the movies/shopping/gas stations are all again easy walking distance, and Snow Planet provides all year skiing with its indoors ski field & cafe. We moved into the area from Auckland West & have never looked back. It is paradise up here. If you are mad about Rugby - we are 20mins from the North Harbour Stadium where some of the Rugby world Cup games will be held. New Zealand has safe swimming off all its beaches & there is literally so much to do I wouldn't have space enough to put it down.
