Auckland, 1021, New Zealand

We’re a family of 4 who are experienced travellers and are looking to do a house-swap over the 2017 Christmas period (9 December onwards til around 27 December however we are flexible at this stage). We have a 3 bedroom house in Grey Lynn, Auckland that’s only 3km from Downtown Auckland and one of Auckland’s prime suburbs, in a very quiet street.

We are 1km or a 10-15 minute walk to Ponsonby Road which is Auckland’s premier restaurant and shopping strip. Plenty of fabulous restaurants, cafes and a great place to people watch. At the end of our street (5 minute walk) is popular West Lynn Village with yet more cafes, restaurants, weekly Sunday Farmers Market, wholefoods store. We are also a 5 minute walk to a gourmet supermarket, and larger chain supermarket. There is a bus stop 2 minutes away that goes directly into downtown Auckland for trips further afield. This is also where the ferries depart for Waiheke and Rangitoto Island. Happy to discuss use of a car if required. To top it off we are a 5 minute walk to Grey Lynn park with a fabulous playground and public splash pool, and there is a small reserve with a swing/slide set 1 minute across the road. There is a ‘green walkway’ that has recently been created a few doors down from our house which takes you on a lovely walk out to the harbour (approx 15 minutes walk away), with a coastal walkway to take you further afield. Swimming beaches at Pt Chevalier are a 5 minute drive away.

The house is warm and sunny and has 3 bedrooms, a good sized master with king sized bed complete with ensuite bathroom with bath & shower and two smaller bedrooms with king single beds. The main bathroom has a great walk-in fully tiled shower. The sunny open plan living room has 2 sofas, one of them pulls out into a double sofa bed. TV and WiFi provided. The dining table seats 6 and is made from antique French pearwood. We are foodies so the kitchen is well equipped with Bosch appliances, double refrigerator/freezer, gas hobs, Nespresso machine and lots of cookbooks! We also have a washing machine and dryer available.

The outdoor living area receives all day sun and use of a Weber gas BBQ for those lovely summer evenings. We have a trampoline, basketball hoop, beach equipment available.

The property is very secure, behind security gates with a keypad entry in a quiet street.

We’re open to offers – our dream would be New York or other USA locations, or Europe, but really happy to consider anything at this stage 🙂
