Our home is a 'Queenslander' style home which has large verandahs, a rear deck and a rotunda at the front of the house. It is 350 square metres in size and is two stories. It has polished hard wood floors in the main areas and all three bedrooms have carpet. The entire house is airconditioned and the main bedroom has an ensuite with a spa. There is a private inground heated swimming pool and fully fenced rear yard.
The kids don't miss out, there is a cubby house with sandpit and slide in the backyard, and the games room on the first level has a pool table, aracade machine and pinball machine.
Our home is situated in Brisbane, Queensland Australia and only 20 minutes drive from the heart of the city. Located in a quiet cul-de-sac at the top of the street, enjoy the views of the neighbourhood from the verandah, rear deck or front rotunda. Our neighbours are very friendly and would be more than happy to assist with anything during your stay.
Take a 1 hour drive north to the Sunshine Coast (Caloundra) where the famous 'Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo' is situated along with other attractions including white sandy surf beaches. Or take a 1 hour drive south to the exciting Gold Coast where there are other great places to see and enjoy (Dream World, Sea Worl, Movie World, Outback Spectacular) Brisbane is a great place to visit and there is so much to see and do from here. The Great Barrier Reef is located about 4 hours north of Brisbane and is amazing!
We also have a holiday apartment on the Sunshine Coast which we can include in any swap, allowing you to get away from the city and enjoy the beach lifestyle. It isn't called the 'Sunshine Coast' for no reason!
We have two cars (4WD) and small passenger car that can also be included in the swap. There are trains and buses nearby and the Brisbane International Airport is only 25 minutes away.
Kids are welcome here and well accomodated for. We have a cubby house with a sandpit and slide in the backyard, as well as a games room with a pool table, pinball machine and arcade machine.
We have plenty of photos, so if you would like to see more, feel free to ask.
We are a young family of four and both my wife and I work in the law enforcement. We haven't travelled overseas as a family before and looking forward to finding a place to visit.
We enjoy the outdoors including snow skiing, fishing, swimming and all types of sports. We are very family orientated and are looking for a destination where we can include our young son in different activities.
