Our home is very comfortable, with all modern appliances. The very spacious house is air conditioned, though this is rarely used, as all windows are fitted with crimsafe screens so that the sea breeze can flow in.
Though spacious, with many rooms, the house is easy to maintain.
A Mazda3 2008 Sedan is offered to exchangees for the duration of their stay, as well as a very well maintained spa which will accommodate 4 adults.
Our home is 20 minutes from Brisbane International Airport, and we have easy access to the Sunshine and Gold Coasts by freeway (approximately 1 hour's drive). If the beach is not for you, relax in the spa at home, perhaps after a day visit and a 40 minutes' drive to the famous Steve Irwin's "The Australian Native Animal Zoo and Crocodile Farm".
MovieWorld, Seaworld and Dreamworld are also full-day attractions, less than one hour's drive down the coast highway.
It is less than one-and-a-half hours' drive north to lush rain forest hinterland. Our home is very comfortable as well, and we extend a very warm welcome to our exchangees in 2009. Bracken Ridge is a suburb of Brisbane, and there is easy access to the city by car or public transport. Local shopping is just a short walk away.

Paul and I (Carmel) are semi retired teachers. We have been married 40 years. The whole World has not been safe to us as far as travelling around its many countries or meeting its people. We are experienced exchangees and even though we have a large home reference library, antiques/collectables, we have not had any go missing or broken. So let's just get on and use our second most valuable asset, our homes.
