Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

MEMBERS SINCE 2011

Our house is a comfortable family home in a semi-rural area close to Palmerston North. Our house has 3 bedrooms (one with an ensuite), 1 large rumpus/bedroom, 2 bathrooms, modern kitchen, lounge and dining area and a study room. We have a large garden to enjoy. We also have 3 acres of paddock with hens, ducks and friendly sheep. We also have an older cat - cat feeding may be required.

Our car may be available for you to use if you need it. It is a 5 minute drive to Palmerston North with it's restaurants, supermarkets, swimming pool, Massey University, banks and shops.

Palmerston North is very central to most parts of the southern North Island including Wellington, Hawkes Bay and even Taupo. There is so much to see and do here!
There are beaches 20 minutes drive away and the main North Island ski fields are 3 hours drive away.
See http://www.palmy.net.nz/aboutpn/

Use of our holiday house at Pukawa, Lake Taupo is also possible.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

An excellent website showing what is on, where to eat, where to shop, day trips etc is http://www.thesquare.co.nz/PalmerstonNorth/index.aspx

The national newspaper recently did an article on Palmerston North also - http://www.nzherald.co.nz/travel/news/article.cfm?c_id=7&objectid=11499060

We are less than 10 minutes form the centre of Palmerston North so everything shown on the above website is easily accessible. There are fabulous walks, rivers, beaches ( Foxton and Himitangi http://www.nzherald.co.nz/travel/news/article.cfm?c_id=7&objectid=11520860 ) and parks all around our area - most within 30 minutes drive.
