About our home

New Flash July 2017: We have now secured all possible exchanges for 2017. Our house is available for longer term (2 weeks or more) exchanges from mid May2018 to mid Sep2018. Always open to Melbourne or Castlemaine area where our children live.

Our house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac on a high ridge with a fantastic ocean outlook. The views are magnificent with a 180 degree sweep of the ocean from Honeysuckle Hill to Broken Head - perfect for whale watching from June to October. The house backs onto a lush National Park bush strip with direct access to a track leading to the beach, just a short stroll away. The town is within easy reach by car, bike or on foot.

The deck looking out to the ocean is a total magnet and we find ourselves gravitating there throughout the day. There’s also a lovely verandah off the bedrooms that has mountain views and is a perfect spot to soak up the last rays of the sun.

The lounge/dining/kitchen is open plan with sweeping views over the treetops to the ocean. It is surrounded by decks.

Byron Bay is one of Australia’s premier holiday destinations. This area within Byron Bay is a pure gem. It’ quiet, serene, an easy walk to an uncrowded beach and yet within easy reach of all the action Byron has to offer. We absolutely love it.

There are two trendy cafes – the Top Shop and the Roadhouse – within a 1 km walk and a greengrocer/general store – the Green Garage – close by.

We've recently retired, Johan had his own Computer Consulting business & Lucie was a Business Analyst. We enjoy travel, and have been house swapping since 2001. We spent most of last year in Europe courtesy of house swaps. Our three adult children live in Melbourne and we intend to spread our time between Byron, Melbourne and overseas. When in Byron Lucie and I reside in a basement apartment underneath the main house.

We’re healthy lifestyle folk who enjoy walking, reading, fine dining and the arts. We will take great care of your home.
