About our home

Our home is a three-storey residence with ocean views from two levels and a quiet, relaxing ambience. It is only 100 metres from a patrolled surf beach (patrolled by lifeguards all year round) and a short stroll from popular restaurants, cafes and shops. The Hedges Avenue cycling/walking/running path is 100 metres from the house.

The property has a north-facing pool and resort-style entertaining area with two large daybeds and a hammock. The low maintenance gardens and banana palms provide a tropical feel. There are 5 large bedrooms, downstairs study, 3 bathrooms, two living areas and a rumpus. There is also a double garage, featuring a pool table, and double carport. You are welcome to use our bicycles and cars - an Audi A3 and Volvo 7-seater XC 90.

The home features ducted air-conditioning and a c-bus wiring system controlling lighting, blinds and security.

There are plenty of bikes to use, including professional racing bikes and mountains bikes.

Mermaid Beach is a popular beachside suburb - 1km south of Broadbeach and 2km north of Burleigh Heads. Surfers Paradise is 5km to the north and the stunning Rainbow Bay is 25 minutes to the south. Byron Bay is 1 hour south by car and Noosa is just over 2 hours away. The World Heritage Listed hinterland areas of Lamington National Park, Binna Burra and Springbrook are just under an hour away.

We also have a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom holiday house by the beach in Coffs Harbour.


More about us

  1. We are a couple with 4 children - ages 16, 15, 12 and 10. Our children are used to house swapping and we use the opportunity to teach them about valuing the property of other people and being considerate. We have swapped in several places in Australia and spent six weeks travelling in Europe in 2016/17. This included a swap in London.

  2. Maurice is an accountant and works in management rights. Lara is a casual primary school teacher and freelance journalist.

  3. We love relaxing on the beach and having barbecues with friends and family. We love fish and chips, slow-roasted lamb, red wine, Indian food and long walks on the beach. Maurice loves cycling so we have several good road and mountain bikes for you to use. The Hedges Avenue cycling/jogging/walking track is 100 metres from our home.
