North New Brighton tenant Aaron Flintoff says his new Housing New Zealand home is pretty much perfect.

The single father of one moved into the North New Brighton property with his six-year-old daughter earlier this year.

Aaron had previously been sleeping in his van at his mother’s house, while his daughter slept inside his mother’s house. Their new home is close to Aaron’s mother and also his daughter’s school. “All in all, we’re pretty lucky.”

The house is well designed, very warm and low maintenance, he says. “My daughter loves it, which is really important to me too,” says Aaron.
