Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We built our home 6 years ago on the beachfront to suit the needs of older people, with space for children and grandchildren to stay. It’s a comfortable 220 square metre home with stunning views from the main bedroom and the living areas. The white sand beach in front of us is perfect for walking, swimming and fishing. It’s 50 minutes by car to NZ’s capital city, Wellington, and 90 minutes’ drive to the renowned wine district of Martinborough. Paraparaumu Links Golf Course, one of NZ’s premier courses, is 15 minutes drive away.

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

It is a short walk along the beach, or the road, to several cafes, a great bakery and corner stores for bread and milk type supplies.
Walking on the beach at any tide is lovely. It’s 40 minutes to the Waikanae River mouth going south or you can walk for many kilometres going north if you wish.
The Waikanae golf course is 15 mins walk or 5 mins drive away.
