About our home

Our home is situated about 15 minutes drive from the coast. It is very roomy. We have a main bedroom with a queen sized bed and it has an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has a double bed and there is a main bathroom. We also have a very large all purpose room in which we have a single bed and are able to add another single. Off this room we have the laundry which also has a shower and toilet. Whilst we are away we will have a professional in to look after the pool.

We are part of a peninsular which has a coastline of beaches, both city and suburban. We are within ten mins. walk of the bus which takes you into the city of Sydney which has all the usual major city attractions. We are a 15 min. bus ride (or car ride) away from Manly - a very popular resort with a harbour and ocean beach. One can get a ferry from there to go across to Sydney which is a lovely way to travel as you see the Opera House in all its glory along with Government House and also a great view of the Harbour Bridge.

The 2nd storey of our home is a flat and is occupied by a friend of ours who will assist in any way if necessary. His entrance is completely separate from yours and neither accommodation interferes with the other.

We have swapped twice before and it has been very successful and we had no trouble with car exchanges. We respect other peoples property as we know any exchangers would do the same. We are a retired couple and have relatives in the UK. We are looking to spend Christmas 2016 in or around London. My sister lives in Staines. My son, his wife and two children, aged 9 and 5 would also like to stay for about two weeks with us. We however, are happy to stay longer and fit in with a swap partner.
