Christine's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Neill and Christine are wonderful hosts making us feel welcome tight from the start including a nice selection of food in the fridge. Neill kindly spent some time with us before he left, providing information on the house and local areas. Neill and Christine have completed a sympathetic update of their home that makes for an efficient kitchen/dining/sitting room area. Their home is clean and well appointed and thus a very comfortable and relaxing place to spend time. A short walk to the pretty town of Moss Vale and we enjoyed multiple cycle rides to to nearby towns. The use of Neill\'s car made longer distance travel a delight and enabled us to enjoy visits to Canberra and Sydney which highlighted how well located their home is. Thank you Neill and Christine, it was lovely meeting you and we really did appreciate all you did for us. We hope you enjoy our home and location when you come to Canada for your exchange.”
Where is it?
Approx 80 min from Sydney airport, the house is within the small township of Moss Vale, about an 8 minute walk to a good set of shops, including two supermarkets. Moss Vale is one of about eight small towns in the New South Wales Southern Highlands. The area is a very popular tourist destination. Like most of Australia, the climate is temperate but this particular area, at a higher altitude, is relatively cool with low humidity. The region has rolling green hills, beautiful gardens and trees, reminiscent of parts of England, making it an attractive place to live and a desirable weekend and holiday destination for people living in Sydney and Canberra. Within 30 minutes, there are at least seven wineries, four golf courses (one across the road) and many historic buildings and scenic attractions. Our neighbours are very friendly and, along with our friends, would prove helpful to anyone staying in our home. The township of Bowral, about 15 minutes drive, has a four cinema complex and many good restaurants and other shops. Moss Vale itself has a new swimming centre that includes several pools and a gym. One hour away by car are several excellent beaches. Within 20 minutes, a national park provides many walking/hiking opportunities. Overall the area is very attractive. Lively and colourful Sydney and the beautiful national capital Canberra are, respectively, an easy 90 and 105 minutes drive on an excellent freeway or a two hour train ride.
