Apartment Del Monte - Awesome beach experience

We are looking for up to a 6-12 month house and vehicle swap for 2019. We would prefer a major city in the UK such as London or Edinburgh but are open to all offers.

We have a 3 bedroom apartment in Mount Maunganui. Only 1 min walk to 2 beaches in either direction. With 90 kms of white beaches, surfing, boating and fishing . Loads of cafes and restaurants, shops and bars just 5 minute walk away. Experience New Zealand beach culture. Try surfing or fishing. Situated just 2.5 hours drive from Auckland international airport. Major City of Tauranga is 15 minutes drive away.

Easy to maintain apartment with courtyard for BBQs. If coming in the winter, just 2.5 hours to ski fields in Taupo. Lots of golf courses, great walking around or up the ajoining mountain. Voted the most beautiful beach area in New Zealand. Fishing rods, boogie boards, wetsuits are provided.You can base yourself here and do day trips around most of the North Island, including the town of Rotorua just 40 mins away (home of historic Maori culture and natural hot mud pools).

About the location

A stunning beachside community with lots of natural features all in walking distance of the apartment as well as a town of cafes, restaurants and shops. Also in easy driving distance to many of the major North Island tourist attractions. Is the most visited beach area in New Zealand over the school holiday period each Dec and January however the best beach weather in New Zealand is February, March and April.

The mountain the apartment is located at the foot of is an easy 45 minute walk around and a moderately hard 1 hour return trip climb up a well formed track.

More than 50 cruise ships visit the port each summer.
