New Zealand / Nelson

House In Sunny Nelson

Our Home

Nelson is NZ's sunniest city and one of New Zealand's top tourist areas. Our home is modern and architect-designed, with superb views out over Tasman Bay.

The house is warm summer and winter, with double-glazing and passive solar heating. We have decks and a BBQ for outdoor living.

More about this property

You will enjoy the stunning views out across Nelson Haven and Tasman Bay. They are best viewed in the evening from the spa, with a glass of local wine or beer in hand!

If you like to keep fit we have a well-equipped gym, mountain bikes, and a sauna. There are countless places to run, walk or bike in and around Nelson, and superb hiking further afield.

We've travelled a lot, and enjoy art, so the house is full of interesting objects from New Zealand and overseas! We have a good library, especially travel books.

You also may have access to a holiday home in the Marlborough Sounds - see 111009.

About Us

We are an easy-going couple with two children, one in Melbourne and one in Sweden. We are semi-retired (but only just the wrong side of 50) and work part-time so we can travel and do other things. We guarantee to look after your home very well.

More about us

We've travelled a lot, and are looking to continue to do house exchanges so we can experience living in other countries. We are pretty flexible with how long we can travel, and the time of year when we go. There's a possibility of your staying with us, and/or non-concurrent house swaps.

We are open to offers in any part of the world - Asia, Africa, Europe and more, for short or long swaps. In particular, we would like to exchange to Melbourne in January any year for the tennis.
