“Christine and Arthur's home is a wonderful base from which to explore a really great part of the Australian east coast. Just beyond their front door is miles and miles of pristine beach that is amazingly beautiful and incredibly empty. It is the perfect beach for walking and jogging and it looked great for swimming and surfing also but it was a little too chilly for us at the time of year we were there. There is also a great bike path just in front that goes for miles and connects with other small towns with very nice restaurants and stores. They offered us their bikes which were in good shape and served us well. Another thing we loved about their location is the restaurant Osteria, which is only 3 blocks away and is open most of the time and has really good food. It was very handy but also there are a couple of other extremely top-notch restaurants that are less than ten minutes away, making it quite a "foody" getaway. The house itself is very pretty and comfortable, especially the master bedroom with the lovely covered porch overlooking the ocean. It is delightful listening to the pounding of the ocean every night, making for great sleeping. I would like to express my special thanks to Christine and Arthur for the use of their wonderful home and for treating our home so well. So well, in fact, that we got a contract for sale on our house while they were there! Thanks again for that!”

“Dear Christine and Arthur, thank you for a wonderful stay and for welcoming us into your home with champagne on arrival and Halloween buckets for the kids! We appreciate the effort you went to with the bikes. We loved the beach outside your home, it was magnificent...clean, wide and beautiful. I enjoyed going to sleep at night with the strong sounds of the ocean and waking up with the sunshine on the back doorstep. Kind regards, Victoria, Adrian and the girls ”
“We had a fabulous time. The location was amazing and the house beautiful. Christine and Arthur were great to swap with as we had loads of information from them. We met up with them before we swapped and got on really well as they are a lovely couple. When we returned home our house was immaculate. They took great care of our home and I would highly recommend swapping with them. We are hoping they would like to swap again as we would love to go back to Casaurina. ”
