“We can certainly recommend a stay in Julie's home. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed the quietness of the house. Everything was very accessible and convenient for our use and the house folder helped us to find everything and know how things worked. The location was ideal for us as it's easy to reach lots of nice places from there and for us it was within easy reach of our family.”

About our home
LOOKING FOR BALI OR HAWAII SWAP
Our modern family home was renovated a few years ago and is perfectly equipped for a family. Four comfortable bedrooms (one queen bed, one king single, one single with trundle bed and one single), two living areas and large entertaining deck and garden. A portable cot is also available if needed. We do not smoke and request that you do not smoke inside the house, the garden is OK. We have a cleaner once a fortnight which can be continued, alternatively we can arrange for the cleaner to come in immediately before your arrival (and on departure). You can either do at your cost or arrange a similar cleaning schedule at your end.
We put new pillow and mattress protectors (and linen of course!) on all beds for home swaps.
Sydney is a wonderful place to spend any time of the year and our home is very well located to access the city and the vibrant hub of Manly beach. While our home is in a suburb about 5 minutes drive from Manly beach, our home is located on the city bus route which will have you in the centre of Sydney within 20 minutes. At the end of our street is a bike path to Manly beach (we have bikes and surfboards you can use) - you will be at the beach within 15 minutes bike ride. At the end of the street is also a great little coffee shop and we are walking distance to a family bistro and multiple restaurants.
The kids will also be happy with a huge springfree trampoline in the back garden and a heated 10 seater spa. The kids games room is also equipped with a Wii and Playstation 3. Very easy for you to sit on the upstairs deck watching the sunset and unwinding while the kids play in the garden or in the downtairs games room.
We are also happy to consider a car swap (subject to insurances). We have a Maxda CX9 (7 seater).

“Great location, great home, the greatest people to swap with : the perfect swap! Julie, Ben & their three kids were very respectful of our home and car. We felt home away home thanks to Julie's attentions. Julie was very helpful in organizing our stay before we arrive (many tips were given) and it was really easy to be touch during our stay. We feel as we have friends in Sydney now.”
“Julie and Ben's home is contemporary, clean and Julie left the smallest details for us. Books on where to go, what to visit, soap in bathroom, plenty for children to do and then some! As with all of our home swaps we feel we get to know the families when we stay absorbing the culture of 'Love home swaps'. We feel privileged to swap our homes with like minded families/couples. Excellently presentable in a great location near Manly and the beaches. ”
