About our home

Our home is 10 years old - a comfortable, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom rendered house which is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We have a wonderful view of the harbour and jetty and all year round we enjoy barbecuing and entertaining on our covered, large deck.

Downstairs has a good size rumpus area which is well utilized and has access to the garage.

We designed our house to be easy care:

* Stone bench tops in the kitchen and en suite bathroom off bedroom 1
* Bathrooms 2 and 3 are three way designed: separate vanity area, separate toilet and shower and bath in a separate area.
* Timber floors upstairs and tiles downstairs.
* Bedrooms are carpeted.
* No lawn to mow - a small garden to maintain.
* A double garage with electronic roller door accessed from a lane.
* Plenty of storage areas - ample kitchen cupboards and drawers; a separate walk in pantry with extra sink, small fridge and shelving; a walk in wardrobe for bedroom 1, wardrobes for bedrooms 2, 3, 4. There is a linen cupboard, hall cupboard, storage room downstairs, extra storage under the stairwell, lots of garage shelving, 2 home office areas etc
* There is a built in vacuum with access upstairs and down.
* There is a laundry chute upstairs.

At present we have 3 TV's (upstairs is a Smart TV) and have NBN Fast Broadband installed.

We love where we live - you will too!

More about us

  1. We are retired schoolteachers (Des and Narelle) with 4 sons and 9 grandchildren. We have traveled extensively and have enjoyed four home exchanges. The first was a full year to the Mid West of USA - we exchanged houses, jobs and cars. We had an amazing time and made many new friends. The second was to beautiful West Yorkshire and incorporated the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England. We followed that with a wonderful exchange in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia and an enjoyable visit to Earlwood, Sydney.
    We are looking for exchanges short or extended and will consider any offers - especially in Australia.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The city of Coffs Harbour is located approximately halfway between Sydney and Brisbane, and it prides itself on its many attractions, natural beauty and quality of services. With a predicted population of 77,520 by June of 2020 Coffs Harbour is also a major regional centre feeding a catchment population of over 200,000 people. This provides our city with all the benefits of 'big city' infrastructure whilst still retaining the convenience and atmosphere of a 'country town'.

The historic 'Jetty' area of Coffs Harbour is a very special place - close to beaches, great picnic spots, the marina and Muttonbird Island, a fishing co-op which sells fresh fish and seafood, a Supermarket, a boat ramp, shopping, restaurants to suit all tastes, a great pub, a post office, a bus service, medical centre, High School, gymnasium, hairdressers, markets - most close enough to walk to.

The Jetty Beach is patrolled in summer and is protected by break-walls to provide safe swimming. Extensive parks along the foreshore offer sheltered playgrounds & BBQ facilities immediately adjacent to the beach, and the nearby marina is home to a large number of recreational, commercial and tourism vessels. The foreshore area is currently the focus of major redevelopment plans that aim to further enhance its reputation as the jewel of the Coffs Coast.

A short distance away by bus or car there are larger shopping centres: Coffs Central in Coffs Harbour's CBD features popular indoor and outdoor eating areas and close proximitythe RSL. To the north 'Park Beach Plaza' has a lot to offer due to its close proximity to the beach - it is the largest shopping centre between Newcastle and the Gold Coast. North of Park Beach you will find the suburbs of Diggers Beach, Korora, Sapphire Beach, Moonee Beach, Emerald Beach, Sandy Beach, Woolgoolga, Safety Beach, Mullaway and Arrawarra.

South of the Coffs Harbour CBD is Coffs Base Hospital, the Regional Airport, Southern Cross University, Coffs Harbour Golf Course, Coffs Harbour Race Course and International Stadium. Beyond these areas are the suburbs of Sawtell, Toormina & Boambee. Sawtell is a popular seaside village with the surf beach just a short stroll from its famous Fig tree lined main street. Toormina is Sawtell's larger neighbour incorporating the Toormina Gardens Shopping Centre.

Rural towns in the Coffs Coast region include Bonville, Upper Orara, Coramba, Lower Bucca and Nana Glen to name a few. Each town has its own claims to fame. Bonville has the Bonville International Golf Club and Nana Glen has Hollywood actor Russell Crowe as a resident.

There are opportunities to participate in and enjoy a huge range of sporting fun on the Coffs Coast - tennis, swimming, surfing, triathlons, cycling, rugby league and rugby union, basketball, netball, golf, hockey, AFL, football, baseball, bowls - to name just some of them. With our excellent facilities and year-round sporting environment, the Coffs Coast attracts some of Australia's premier sporting events and athletes.

Coffs Harbour has a Regional Museum, Bunker Cartoon Gallery and a Regional Art Gallery. Many wonderful cultural events are enjoyed at the Jetty Memorial Theatre and movie fans are catered for at the Coffs Harbour Cinema Centre and the Majestic Cinema at Sawtell.
