We are a NZ family of 5. My husband is a University academic and I am a relief teacher. Our children are aged 19, 17 & 10. The property we wish to swap is our holiday house in Lake Hawea. It is a comfortable house built in 2002 with all the mod cons including dishwasher etc. Surrounded by mountains and the stunning lake Hawea just a few minutes walk from the house with walking/ bicycle track along the lake front . Also a few minutes away is the start of the walk/bicycle track along the Hawea river that goes all the way to the township of Wanaka. We have bikes available at the house (2 adult and 4 children).
