Something about ourselves
Louise is a former secretary to company exexutives, Owen a retired TV producer. We are aged 65 and have recently retired from operating a B&B in the Blue Mountains. Our hobbies are (in this order!) golf, bushwalking, reading, music, gardening. We have no children, two lovely cats which can be boarded if preferred (however should you have pets requiring care we are more than happy to recripocate). We would also be looking for a car swap arrangement. We are both non-smokers, experienced house swappers and would treat your house as our own. We will consider (and answer) all offers, both within Australia and overseas.
