A lovely new architecturally designed 4 bedroom beach house, with large airy living areas and covered outdoor barbeque area.
It is actually our holiday house, so is set up with everything you will need but with no clutter.
There are two bedrooms downstairs with a queen bed in one and bunks in the other serviced by a bathroom and upstairs there is a similar set up. The upstairs master bedroom has sliding doors to a large verandah. There is an upstairs lounge with TV/DVD/VIDEO player with also leads onto the verandah.
The large entertainers kitchen is downstairs with bar stools surrounding it. This is set in the very open plan family room which includes a lounge and large dining setting. This room is surrounded by large glass doors and has access to the bbq area and front paved courtyard and landscaped gardens.
It is a beautiful summer house, but also lovely in winter as there is an open fireplace in the family room and gas heating, plus under-floor heating in the upstairs bathroom.
The area is a small coastal village on top of a peninsula with the ocean and fantastic surfing on one side and a beautiful tidal lake the other.
The ocean beach is only about 300 meters away and you can hear the waves crashing on the beach from the house. The lake is about 500 meters away on the other side and has protected swimming areas and a boat ramp with woodfire barbeques set along the edge.
The village is protected from any strong winds as it is set amongst the bush which is why you can only catch glimpses of the ocean horizon from the house.
There is a lawn out the back of the house with gum and tropical trees surrounding it and a sunken courtyard and path around the front. The block is about 780 meters square and surrounded by other similar sized blocks. Most of the houses are holiday houses as well.
There is one convenience shop about 200 meters away and another slightly larger shop a 10 minute drive away. The main town is about half and hours drive away and the railway station is 50 minutes drive away.
Sydney is approximately 3 hours drive north and Canberra is about the same distance south west.
We are a family of 4 (2 children aged 6 and 8 years) in the UK until June 2008 and are interested in driving to a destination in France or Spain during the Easter holidays. (around 23rd March till 4th April)
We do not need the house swap to be at this time as our house is available from February 2008 until December 2008.
We would love to see an interesting part of either country, and preferably have somewhere to swim and relax.
We only speak English, but could understand most of the information written in French on the website!
