About our home

UPDATE: SEEKING A PLACE FOR AN ADULT FAMILY OF FOUR IN CENTRAL LONDON FROM LATE NOVEMBER TO MID DECEMBER, 2016. OURS WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM SEPTEMBER 2016 TO FEBRUARY 2017 - BUT WE ARE FLEXIBLE!

Our exceptionally colourful holiday home comprises of a collection of pieces picked up on our travels around the world and reflects our nomadic lifestyle - particularly in South Asia. It was originally our main home, but now that we are based predominantly in Canberra or overseas, it has been 'promoted' to our retreat.

The house has three large bedrooms - all three with queen/double beds and one bedroom with single bunk-beds. There is room to sleep perhaps two more (a sofa bed arrangement) in the TV room. We can offer a pool/games room, large spa bath, large sitting and entertainment area, balcony with leafy views and a variety of colourful bird-life to hand feed. On occasion, our back yard is visited by very shy echidnas and wallabies (of the kangaroo family).

Our home backs on to nature reserve (Jervis Bay National Park) and is a 500m walk to the pristine and dazzling white sands of Greenfields and Blenheims Beaches. Hyams Beach (which is recorded as having the whitest sands in the world), is only a 10-15 minute walk away along a coastal bush track.

Jervis Bay is especially famous for its unique marine life, therefore scuba and snorkeling are favourite pastimes here. We can offer basic snorkeling gear for your use and also recommend nearby PADI dive shops in Huskisson for more advanced Scuba gear. Whale and dolphin watching tours are regularly run from nearby Huskisson and Booderee National Park is approximately 20 minutes by car.

Limited Wifi and phone access is available here, but we may be able to offer solutions to this. Trains from Sydney to Bomaderry (Nowra) several times daily and local buses from there to Vincentia (20-30 minutes away) are available - otherwise car rental is probably the best option - and a cleaning service can also be provided during your stay if necessary, however we can discuss these things when we liaise!

We are keen to spend time in Africa (Kenya, South Africa), Europe (France, Sweden and the Balkans) and the UK (London and all over) so swaps in these parts of the world are especially exciting, though we would possibly be interested in almost anywhere in the world.
