Our home sits on the side of a hill near Mount Ninderry. We are central to the attractions of the Sunshine Coast which is a holiday area north of Brisbane (the capital city of Queensland). From our covered verandah and pool area, we have a wonderful view of the neighbouring hinterland and valley.
Our single-story home has an open-plan kitchen-living area extending out onto a private deck and pool. The master bedroom, with a view of the 'heated' pool, has an ensuite with walk-in wardrobe with a king bed that can be converted into two king singles. There is a second bedroom with an ensuite bath and shower and a queen bed (or two king singles). The third room is bedroom/reading room (convertible couch with inner spring double-full- mattress). There is also an office and a laundry. Our home is very private.
Wireless internet is available. There is reverse cycle air-conditioning, though our climate is so wonderful, it is not needed often. Our Mitsubishi Outlander, which seats four comfortably/five, can be available depending on the type of exchange. We prefer to be able to exchange cars if possible. Note: Driving on the left is not that hard!!
Our home is environmentally friendly, with solar hot water, solar-boosted electricity and water tanks which provide the best drinking water.
Our neighbourhood is a very friendly and safe where you can enjoy afternoon walks . . . and on return, beautiful sunsets from the deck. We love traveling, but we always love coming back to Ninderry; living here is like being on a holiday.
Queensland is a big state, and Australia is around the size of the USA and bigger than than Europe and the UK combined. From Ninderry you can explore southeast Queensland and northern New South Wales.You may also wish to combine a few home-exchanges in other parts of Australia for your 'downunder' adventure. We are one and a half hours from Brisbane International airport and twenty minutes from the Sunshine Coast airport which has daily flights to Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland, New Zealand. Both Qantas and Virgin Australia have air passes available at certain times which may be of interest.
AUSSIE AIR PASSES (We try to keep these updated.)
