The favourite aspect of our neighbourhood would undoubtably be the renowned, patrolled surf beach.. just 180 steps from our front door. Palm Beach was voted the cleanest beach on the Gold Coast! Fantastic beach walks, anytime of the day or night, lead to estuaries at either end of the Palm Beach strip. These are popular with familes and fishermen. We also appreciate the numerous restaurants providing a huge variety of cuisines, the wine bars, shops and all essential services all within 2-5 min walk. The Palm Beach surf club perches above the sand... live music, pokies, bar and restaurant. Amazing views day and night while sitting on the deck with a great affordable meal and a glass of Australian wine.
Bakeries, banks, chemist, butcher, doctor, dentist, beauty salons etc all one block away. Public transport to all beaches and destinations on the coast and beyond... and to the famous "Theme Parks"..Sea-World, Dreamworld, Movie World and Water Parks.
The night life of Sufers Paradise and Broadbeach are to the north and the beautiful regions of Byron Bay and surrounds to the south.
Fantastic climate all year round!! Fishing, golf courses, tennis courts, markets, shopping centres, parks, gardens, sports fields, churches and hinterland all close by. The hinterland, 'the green behind the gold', offers a toally different aspect of the coast: horse riding, hiking, four-wheel driving, wineries, picnic spots and waterfalls, just to name a few!
The Coolangatta airport is 7 kms from our home. Brisbane is an easy one hour drive north on the M1 freeway, with an exit just 3 blocks from home.
The Currumbin Bird Sanctuary is a 3 minute drive away. Here you can experience Australian flora and fauna, snakes, birds, koalas, kangaroos and crocodiles in a beautiful, tropical setting...enjoy lunch or take a picnic.
Relax, walk, swim, fish, surf, wine/dine, write, paint....the choice is yours, all year round with winter temperatures 20-22 and summer 28-30 degrees!!! PERFECT.
We are a married couple, Debbie and Damian (47 & 50yr olds) with 2 independant adult children. We are both semi-retired teachers and only recently re-located to the Gold Coast for a sea-change, from a country town in Victoria. We have a passion for travelling, especially since spending a wonderful vacation in Europe a couple of years ago.
Damian recently resigned from a long term position as a deputy principal in a private primary school and I have enjoyed diverse careers in teaching and teaching related occupations. Late 1990's, we established and ran our own business, which developed into a multi-award winning B&B in country Victoria. As well as our love of travelling, we have a passion for people, hospitality, food, wine, history, gardening, architecture and the arts.
Over the past 5 years while still teaching part time, I have been studying art (oil painting). It would be fantastic to capture Europe on canvas! We would dearly love to have a different cultural experience of living in a European country for maybe up to 2 months, to broaden our knowlege, to experience first hand the opportunity of 'living' the culture as opposed to just the quick glimpse you experiece as a tourist.
Our daughter has been travelling around the world with her fiancee for the past three years and is currently living and working in London. Our son is establishing his career in Melbourne...so it's just the two of us. We would love and respect your home as if it were ours! We only speak English with very limited comprehension of French and Italian however it's never to late to learn!
