About our home

Our home is only minutes to the city by ferry or train, McMahons Point was recently named the 3rd Most Liveable suburb in Sydney!

Our home has been completely renovated and is very modern, clean and tidy. The house is full of sunlight and fresh air. We also get the most outstanding sunsets looking over the bay.

The house sits on a steep block which provides us with stunning harbour views from all three levels, however that also means we have a number of stairs.

The master bedroom has a king sized bed and a balcony with harbour views. The main house also has a bedroom with a queen bed and an office with a double sofa bed. There is a separate guest room with a queen size Italian sofa bed which is overlooking the plunge pool. This room has a separate entrance so would be great for another couple but probably not for young children. All bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom each.

McMahons Point is a wonderful part of Sydney. Very quiet and historic with great restaurants and cafes yet it is so close to the city. We love taking the Ferry to the city, it only takes 5 minutes and goes under the Harbour Bridge and past the Opera House on the way to Circular Quay. The train is only 2 stops into town from North Sydney Station (about 10 min walk from home).
Better still you can just walk across the Bridge and take in the view of the whole city. On your way stop into Luna Park the famous amusement park or have a swim at the beautiful North Sydney Pool, which is on the edge of the Harbour looking up at the Bridge. When you get to the other side of the bridge you are in the heart of the famous Rocks area. You will never forget you are in Sydney!

Note I have included some location shots of the Harbour Bridge and Ferry wharf, these were taken a 10 minute walk from our house.

We would be interested in short term exchanges around Australia during school holidays and longer exchanges overseas where we can be more flexible in timing.
We like to exchange for a minimum of 1 week or longer if possible.
Also no plans to visit the UK for a while.

We have recently done a number of great swaps. Now looking for:
- WA over Christmas 2018
- Australia during school Holidays
- Japan - we love Japan always keen to go back
- Open to any interesting places and great houses!

More about us

  1. We are a couple with a 16 year old daughter. We have recently done a number of wonderful home exchanges and are keen to do more.

  2. We have a cloud software business and get the opportunity to travel often. Looking for a longer swap to the US anytime during 2020 for just Charles & I. Ideally on West or East Coast or near an airport with good connections.

  3. We love good food and enjoy spending time to get to know local places. We don't smoke and would take extremely good care of you home.
