Notre maison

Description de notre maison d'échange

MEMBERS SINCE 2007

Tempt us with an offer!! Especially if it''s for a 6 month exchange in France! Or come visit our 1870's heritage home in sunny Napier Hawkes Bay. From here, it is a 5 minute walk to the centre of our stunning architecturally-significant town, set in New Zealand's Hawkes 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.

We prefer no more than 2 couples or 4 family members for exchange (excluding children, sorry). Beds include 1 x super-king bed and 1 x queen bed.

Quartier

Description de notre quartier et ses alentours

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.

A Faire

Nos conseils pour des restaurants, cafés, shopping et activitiés à ne pas manquer

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.

Nos préférences

Ce qu'on apprécie, ce qu'on apprécie moins… Voici nos préférences et nos règles de maison.

Our non-sim exchanges are now fully booked for our 2 month trip in September/October 2018 to France. A big thank-you to our new French friends for their generosity. Otherwise we continue to be interested in exchanges in Australia and New Zealand for 2019 - 2020 (either sim or non-sim up to 14 days). We will be at Lake McQuarrie, Australia in April next year and could add something else either side of this visit. We also like surprise requests anywhere and we enjoy providing short hospitality stays. We are sadly 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 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!
