Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

As our travel options are limited for 2020 we are open to exchanges within New Zealand especially the South Island. We are unable to exchange our car with NZ exchanges as we have recently become a one-car family.
During 2021/2022 we are hoping to visit the UK for an extended visit with a reciprocal car exchange if possible. We could also be tempted by an exchange in Europe. We would consider exchanging during our New Zealand Spring or Summer for a UK or European Autumn/ Winter. We would love to visit a Christmas Market in Europe. So please tempt
We prefer 1 or 2 mature couples. We are non smokers & only interested in exchanging with fellow non smokers. We do not have pets & we do not want the responsibility of looking after your pets.. Our gardener will maintain the outdoor areas. We ask that you leave our home clean & we will leave your home the same.
We prefer exchanges with comfortable well equipped homes not basic holiday home.
