We love travelling, particularly to quieter areas that offer walking, sightseeing and golf activities. Our names are Jan and John and there will not be children travelling with us although there may be 2 friends of a similar age. We have been retired for some time. Jan has a background of tertiary teaching and administration while John is a retired engineer. We live in Wellington but are offering our holiday home just south of Lake Taupo for exchange. We travel to our holiday home several times a year. John enjoys angling and trout fishing while I swim, walk, play golf, croquet and enjoy the peace and scenery.

About Our Home

Two bedroomed home with a self contained sleepout that will sleep 6-8 more people. Nestled in native bush in an exclusive resort of about 100 holiday homes. The native bird life is amazing and there is plenty to do. About 23 km to Taupo where there is plenty of adventure and sporting activities.
