Our attractive house (newly built in 2009) offers you a comfortable base in Bochum (Ruhr-area), Germany right in the heart of Europe. It has 4 (5) bedrooms with 3 bathrooms. The open kitchen/dining/lounge area (60m2 floor area) has a great view over a small valley, including a spacious balcony and a terrace around the house with outdoor settings. There are 4 large bedrooms upstairs, all overlooking the beautiful landscape. There is an additional lounge with TV downstairs with a nice terrace to our garden, which can be used as a bedroom as well. We offer you internet (high speed). The kitchen has a grill, oven, freezer, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and a washing mashine and dryer in the laundry. Our garden behind the house invites you to relax in summer or built a snowman in winter...

Mihran (39 yrs) works as a sociologist at the University of Bochum. Our daughter Emily (12 yrs) and her two brothers Fynn (10 yrs) and Matti (8 yrs) have been to Sydney for a family visit once before in 2003. We have not tried home exchange before, but we are sure we can offer you a great home for an interesting stay in Europe with the best opportunity to travel and experience a great time in europe! We love our home and we guarantee you, that we will respect and look after your home as if it was ours.

    Since my brother has friends in Sydney, it would also be possible to swap houses for a shorter period of time in March / April 2011.
