Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have a very light and sunny home with views over Wellington from nearly every room. The living areas are open plan and open with french doors onto a sunny deck that overlooks the view. It can be windy in some weathers but wonderfully calm in others. We have two bedrooms upstairs, each with a queen bed. Downstairs is a study/single bedroom and the second bathroom and laundry. The house is up about 50 steps and there is off street parking. The street is a cul-de-sac so it's pretty quiet and we enjoy the sight and sound of tui, grey warblers, kaka and blackbirds and the occasional kingfisher.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Brooklyn sits just above the city and within easy walking distance. We are about a half hour pleasant walk into central Wellington (and there are buses handy too) and there are some good walks and mountain bike tracks accessible from the house. Our village has several cafes, a very popular independent picture theatre, a well reviewed cafe/bistro/bar, as well as a pharmacy, money machine, small convenience stores, liquor store and takeaway shops. By car, the city and waterfront is a 5-10 minute drive and in the other direction it's a 10 min drive to the coast and a lovely drive (or walk) around a rugged coastline and several bays and beaches.

Attractions

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

Wellington is a vibrant and very walkable city, with great cafes, museums, theatres, and shopping, a lovely harbour and waterfront, as well as beaches and wild coastal walks. It's also the headquarters of Peter Jackson's movie making with access to Wellywood tours.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Our preference for exchanges at the moment is for the Greek Islands; possibly London; and near-ish to Mooloolaba in Australia, where our son lives. But we are open to other places if we can bank our part of the exchange until a year or two or three ahead.
We have wooden floors so no stillettos.
Our deck is high above the ground and not safe for children; children are welcome but would need to be closely supervised. We also have white sofa covers and would want them looked after.
We have a cat that needs to be feed night and morning.
