Beskrivelse af vores byttebolig


Tempt us with an offer!! Especially if it's for a 6-month exchange in France! Or come visit our 1880's heritage home in sunny Napier Hawke's Bay. From here, it is a 5 minute walk to the centre of our stunning architecturally-significant town, set in New Zealand's Hawke's Bay region with its wineries and beautiful coastal scenery. Our 2-storey villa overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the cultural centre of New Zealand's Art Deco capital, Napier (an easy one-hour flight from Auckland).

The layout of our house is best discovered through the photos attached. It is tastefully furnished with a mix of antiques and contemporary furniture and the walls are hung with (mostly) NZ art. We have a productive vegetable garden which we'd love you to enjoy during your stay.

Although it is a 5-bedroomed house we are now offering exchange for 2 people in our guest room with queen bed.

Beskrivelse af omegn

We are walking distance to coastal walks, seaside hot spa/pool complex, numerous cafes, a 180 kilometre network of off-road coastal and wetland walkways (cycling or walking), a Saturday farmers' market (Napier) and heritage architecture guided walks. A favourite with visitors is the art deco earthquake memorial week-end held each year in the third week-end of February. [Napier was destroyed by an earthquake in 1931]. The town turns into a popular street party with locals and visitors dressing in art deco style. A short drive from our home takes you to the historic port of Ahuriri, where you can wander around galleries and cafes, or if feeling more strenuous, walk the Ahuriri wetland walk, enjoying local seabirds along the way. A 25 minute drive takes you to celebrated Havelock North Village, a mecca for shoppers and those looking for a quiet coffee or a movie at the boutique cinema, Cinema Gold.

Vores lokale tips for muligheder, steder at besøge, mens du er i vor bolig

Hawkes Bay is noted as one of the food bowls of New Zealand (check out the 2 Farmers' Markets) and is one of the largest grape-growing areas in the country. Many of the local vineywards have winery cafes/restaurants or cellar doors where one can buy and taste the wine. Each year we visit a new and different vineyard for our wedding anniversary and we can't decide on our favourite, although Clearview estate is a winner for informal lunches. As keen golfers and members of the Maraenui Golf Course, we can recommend one of the beautiful golf courses in the Hawkes Bay. Two boutique cinemas (Cinema Gold in Havelock North and the Globe in Ahuriri) provide an interesting selection of Arthouse movies. If bird watching is your thing, we can recommend a visit to the Cape Kidnapper's Gannet Colony or a walk around the estuary walk at Ahuriri. Being health foodies, we are proud to boast one of the largest organic shops in the country - Chantals - only 5 minutes walk from our home.

Hvad kan vi lide eller ikke lide. Her er vores ønsker og boligregler

Covid played havoc with our 2-month 2020 exchange holiday plans and may yet do the same with our European trip in the northern spring 2021. Like many of you we are strengthening our 'regional NZ tourism' options and have been to Nelson and Coromandel in recent months. We have put specific NZ destinations on our site, with a trip to Christchurch, Banks Peninsula and Timaru loosely planned for the autumn (April 2021). We do like surprise requests from anywhere and we enjoy providing short hospitality stays. Sadly, we are no longer able to exchange the car (unless it is a simultaneous exchange in Australia, say) as we have become a one-car family. We have 2 bicycles available for your use. We are attracted to heritage homes and villages or coastal locations in particular. We do have a small studio/apartment in Lyall Bay, Wellington if that interests you.
We count it a privilege to be welcomed into someone else's home and would treat your place as we do our own, with utmost care!
Please check our exchange preferences below.
