About our home

Our home is a classic "Queenslander" style cottage only 2.5km from the Brisbane CBD.

We have recently been undertaking a renovation which has involved converting our home into a "dual occupancy" home. This will mean that our house will have two self-contained living spaces:

Upstairs: 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, kitchen. living, dining and outdoor deck

Downstairs: 2 bedrooms, 2 bathroom, kitchen (with breakfast bar), living room, covered outdoor dining/entertainment area with barbecue.

Bedrooms with ensuites and outdoor area are completed downstairs; full kitchen with breakfast bar to be installed in April 2016.

This means we can offer the possibility of non-simultaneous swap. You could stay in our self-contained downstairs apartment any time you like; not necessarily at the same dates we are seeking. So this creates some additional options for negotiating a successful swap

House swap also includes the possibility of use of one of our cars (Honda Jazz) to enable you to access the Gold Coast, Stradbroke Island, Australia Zoo, theme parks and any other attractions.which interest you within a 200km radius of Brisbane City.

We have done three house swaps in the past using different websites - to (1) Numana, Italy, (2) Banbury, England and (3) Shanghai China.

Our swaps need to be (approximately) at a time when our daughter is on (Australian) school holidays.

Our main destinations of interest at present are China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam or United States (especially California and/or New York).

We are, however, open to any other suggested destinations, especially if you can offer dates which suit us

Closer to home, we are also interested in doing school holiday swaps to other places in Australia or New Zealand, especially if car swap was included.

So please use your imagination and suggest possibilities, if you are looking for a place to stay in Brisbane at any time.
