We are so lucky to live in one of the most beautiful parts of Australia, our home is totally relaxing with deep water frontage and surrounded by some of the most gorgeous homes and great boats. The Island on which we live is very safe and has 24 hour security and is a great spot for those summer evening strolls or early morning walks, or you may like to use one of our bikes to explore the Island, either way you will be amazed how friendly our neighbourhood is.
We have a little village close by where you can get a great coffee or just relax and enjoy one of the few restaurants that overlook our local waterways. We are close to some of the most beautiful surf beaches in the world, many great golf courses, restaurants, Harbour Town Outlets, Theme Parks, wonderful hikes into our Hinterland Rain Natural Parks and forests, shopping and its a real boatie's paradise!!. Everything is all within a short drive.
The coast has many exciting activities that you could participate in for example para-flying, jet boating, river cruise, jet skiing, beautiful beaches that go for miles with white sands, challenging Golf courses and much more or you can just sit back relax and take in the view from our balcony and watch the sunset with a glass of wine!!
If you would love to experience seeing huge Whales up close, the coast is very popular for viewing these beautiful Mammals. You can take one of the many tour boats just off shore and see them playing and frolicking as they head North with their babies and for warmer waters, usually from April- October. It's almost like a highway at times as there are so many! A fabulous experience for everyone.
If you are visiting our part of the world for the first time why not think about extending your holiday and take in one of worlds treasures..."The Great Barrier Reef" you will be absortuately amazed at the beauty of the coral, the colour of the fish and water and its only a short flight from the Gold Coast, also while planning your holiday why not think about flying home from Sydney! its just 1 hour flight ( again depending on the time of the year, the flight cost can be very cheap! ) from the Gold Coast and Sydney is such a beautiful city to visit with its majestic harbour and surrounds!
If you have not visited our part of the world, this maybe a great time to think about it, so hopefully we can entice you to come down under!!
We have enjoyed many house swaps over the years and have wonderful memories of all. The latest being, SEDONA. AZ. USA in May 2016, then New Zealand in November, and Montanegro 2017, to name a few!! We have also experienced quiet a few swaps with another site we belong too and experienced quiet a few swaps to Europe and hopefully we will enjoy a few more in the future. We love USA and at this stage we are looking at returning round May 2018 and hopefully can interest someone in Los Angeles, NY, Maine or Asheville NC, also we are open to Canada and New Zealand or Europe, please tempt us!!! what can I say..... we just love to travel!!
This is a NON smoking home.
