About our home

Our home is a comfortable modern 4 bedroom house, however, we use the fourth bedroom as an office. There are two spacious living areas. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with double basins, toilet, bath and separate generous shower. The bedroom has a large window looking out onto the swimming pool. The second bedroom is at the front of the house overlooking the garden. The third bedroom contains a single bed, whilst the fourth bedroom is used as the office. The family bathroom also has a bath and a walk-in shower, single hand basin and a separate toilet. The office is equipped with broadband and Wi-Fi connections, and telephone. There is a separate laundry with washing machine and dryer. The kitchen has a stainless steel cooker, ceramic hob, and microwave, and telephone. The house also has reverse cycle air conditioning.

, Living/kitchen area, There are TV's in the lounge and living/kitchen areas with both terrestrial and Foxtel satellite offered. The garage is double with remote electrically operated door. The gardens are compact with a generous covered entertaining area and a small swimming pool.

We would consider most parts of England, but our preference is for Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire, and parts of Hampshire, or one of the Home Counties. We are looking for a 2 month exchange in the same house, if it was possible.
We live in village-like Buderim, on the Sunshine Coast (please visit the website) http;//www.buderim.com in tropical Queensland. We are 1 hour north of the river city of Brisbane, with its excellent shopping, theatres, and entertainment centre, plus its international airport. We also have the Sunshine Coast domestic airport just 20 minutes away, giving direct access to both Sydney, and Melbourne, and twice weekly flights to New Zealand. Our home is near to stunning beaches at Mooloolaba, and Alexander Headland, with good restaurants and trendy cafe life. Swimming, surfing, fishing and boat trips on the Maroochy and Noosa rivers are available. From June to November we have whale watching trips out of Harvey Bay, which offer close up encounters with humpback whales, dolphins and turtles and the occasional shark. 30 minutes drive away is the famous twice weekly Eumundi craft market. The home of the crocodile man, Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo is only 20 minutes drive from here. Inland are the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains and the Blackall Ranges for scenic drives and picnicking, with the lovely tourist towns of Montville and Maleny offering a choice of shops and restaurants, as well as spectacular views back to the sea. The internationally known Gold Coast is a 2 hour drive south, and the holiday resort of Noosa is only a 40 minute drive along the coast (Richard Branson knows a good spot when he sees one).
