“Mark and Peta were excellent exchange partners. We actually stayed in their new home near Maitland. It is set in a luxury neighbourhood in a beautiful rural area. The home was beautiful with enough bedrooms for our big family. The pool and spa were very much appreciated by our kids, as well as lots of space to run in the backyard. Our family enjoyed the Hunter Valley Zoo, Maitland Gaol laser tag and Hunter Valley botanical gardens. The Hunter Valley wine tastings were also great for Shiraz and Semillion wine lovers. Mark and Peta were very friendly and had a lovely young family. Thank you for the hospitality!”

About our home
My wife and I built this home in 2009 in the family friendly suburb of Cameron park in Northlakes Estate. The house has five bedrooms, however one has been converted into a play room for all the kids toys. It is situated on a flat block that is fully fenced and secure. The back yard is grass with a swing set, trampoline and cubby house. The main bedroom has an en-
suite with double shower heads and a large walk in robe. The other bedrooms all have robes and ceiling fans, with two of them having trundle beds under the single beds, this allows extra people to stay over. There are two reverse cycle inverter air con units to keep you cool and a gas heater when it gets cold. The kitchen is user friendly and the whole house is stylish and well appointed. We have an enclosed entertaining area with roll up bistro blinds and a gas BBQ. There is a lock up double garage with internal access and we are open to the use of one of our vehicles. There are kids bikes and a adult mountain bike in the garage that are great for the cycle ways in the estate. There is a new children's play ground just around the corner no more than one minute walk, our kids love it.
Northlakes Estate, Cameron Park is located about 20 minutes drive west of Newcastle with its amazing café lifestyle and beaches. It is a short drive to Lake Macquarie, Australia's largest salt water lake. We are also about 40 minutes drive to the Hunter Valley and the enormous array of top class vineyards and just 90 minutes north of Sydney. We also have the Marine Sanctuary of Port Stevens less than an hour away.
This is a great area to base yourself for exploring a good portion of NSW and its gorgeous coastline and outback.
