Hi fellow member,
Our top floor an art deco apartment home has been a great family home for our family of 3. Only 10 km to the city centre with 3 options for transport (bus less then 5 mins, light rail/tram 10 mins away & train 15 mins walk from house), as well many cafes, bars and a few restaurants in the district. It is a well worn, but tidy home with some nice old touches from the 1930's.
Our first swap will be in early-mid August (sorry cannot arrange anything prior to this time, as we have a young baby atm), and even though this is winter Sydney usually experience plenty of blue sky days (temperature ranging between 17-25c during the day). Toursist locations will not be be busy at this time of year (places like the Blue Mountains are very scenic this time of year) and the beach is still swimmable (although somewhat chilly in water).
We have a large backyard, however unfortunately pets are not allowed at our home (shared with our downstairs neighbours, who are a young family of 3). Our beautiful home has stair access only.
Our home is surrounded by quite a few large trees, and many birds will be chirping away when you rise for your morning coffee.
For anyone who drives a manual car, I am also willing to let you drive my car for the duration of the stay (with evidence of an international drivers licence).
Karl, Lucilla & Quinn
