This week, we're meeting Love Home Swap member Lynn who swapped her gorgeous penthouse apartment within one of Sydney's best suburbs for Susan's home; a beautiful architect designed house within a tranquil rainforest like setting for a chance to relax away from the busy city life of Sydney. Although Lynn and Susan weren't adventuring that far away from home, they managed to experience a completely different environment in their home away from home.
Penthouse apartment in one of Sydney's best suburbs
Interior designer and columnist Lynn and CEO Donna are a professional couple with interests in travelling, health/well-being and art. This is reflected through their home collections of Australian contemporary art, Art Deco and bespoke furnishing.
This open plan north/south facing penthouse apartment was designed and completed in 2010 and has since appeared in New Homes & Apartments Trend Magazine. The kitchen and lounge room open out to a fully enclosed north facing terrace, ideally suited to entertaining and the enjoyment of outdoor living.
Potts point is one of the most sought-after Sydney suburbs with 80% of Sydney's top wine bars located here. For buzzy restaurants in the are Sopra, Bushari and Fratelli Paradise are the owners favourites! For a bit of culture, the Darlo Theatre, Michael Reid Fine Art & Art Deco walking tours are a must visit with Bondi Beach for some much needed sun and sea in Sydney!
What Susan loved about the home swap:Fabulous location in the heart of the city Luxurious, stylish beautifully appointed home Gorgeously friendly owners who really helped make the experience special
How much they saved: Oodles and oodles!

Beautiful architect designed house with stunning water views in New South Wales, Australia
Experienced home swapper Susan is a writer and a mother of a gorgeous 4 year old boy. After spending some time living and working in London, she swapped high heels and handbags for the tranquility of Sydney's northern beaches.
Their stunning architect home is built into the hillside with multiple outside decks, floor to ceiling glass windows and nestled amidst rainforest like gardens home to the native birds and wildlife.
The home is located only 50 minutes drive to Sydney Opera House and Harbor but plenty of things to din locally. Just a short walk away is Careel Bay Marina to grab a coffee break and watch the pelicans and boats go by. Wander into Avalon Village to enjoy its many boutiques, cafes and cinema. For a 5 minute drive away the exclusive Palm Beach awaits with its fabulous restaurants and world famous beaches and lighthouses.
