About our home

Professional couple working towards retirement wish to swap their spacious penthouse on the top (8th) floor in secure building. Three balconies. Sweeping uninterrupted views from every room. 3 min walk to 'light rail' (tram) to city and nightlife. 3 min walk to beach. Overlooks glorious Albert Park, with lounge views to the Melbourne CBD. Central heating/air conditioning. Off street parking.
Guests will need to care for our two beautiful, affectionate, Korat cats. By negotiation: 1 bedroom Unit on floor below (set up as our office) can accommodate an additional 2 people in a fold-out double bed. Vehicle can be included if swapping (1998 Mercedes CLK 320 cabriolet). We are planning to travel quite frequently over the next few years -- plans at present include arranging swaps for July 2015 and July 2016, when we will be in Europe, Africa and South America -- since we will travel at least twice a year.

We will consider non-simultaneous swaps and also using points.
