Notre maison

We are Josefina Laschuetza and Paul Kirkman. We live in the town of Whangarei in North Island, New Zealand. Our house is located in a beautiful semi rural location, looking out over the town and yacht marina which are just ten minutes drive away. Our house is modern and comfortable with all the principal rooms opening out onto an extensive deck, an ideal spot to dine out under the shade sail whilst enjoying the prolific bird life.

Our exchanges can be NON SIMULTANEOUS because we have a sailing boat and we can go sailing when you want to visit New Zealand.

Best time to visit New Zealand is from January to the end of April, summertime here in the Southern Hemisphere.

En savoir plus sur nous

  1. We arrived in Whangarei in 2003 having sailed from Europe in our 42 foot sailboat. Josefina is an art historian from Spain and also speaks English, German & French whilst Paul is a chartered surveyor from the UK. We love sailing, hiking, cycling,reading, good music, art and good food!
    We do enjoy the variety of outdoor activities in the area and the informal Kiwi lifestyle.





Whangarei has good restaurants, a couple of museums and good shopping. We are 2,5 hours away from Auckland and 45 min. away from the famous Bay of Islands one of the best sailing and watersports activities areas in the country. Closer to home we have beaches both for swimming and surfing, good hiking, fishing, kayaking and golfing possibilities. Scuba diving at the Poor Knights Islands (rated as the best sub- tropical diving in the world by Jacques Cousteau)is served by a number of operators at Tutukaka ,about 40 minutes drive away.

There are many good vineyards in the area, many of them with wonderful food. New Zealand makes real good wines!

House swapping with us is easy. We can do simultaneous and non-simultaneous house exchange. We have a comfortable cruising boat, so if you decide to come while we are here, we go sailing. You may even want to enjoy a full day and a night on board with us in the Bay of islands..There, you can swim, hike and relax while we sail the boat.

This year we would like to visit some cities in Europe/North America. between mid-June and August, (winter here).
