By the time it is available for exchange, at the end of 2011, it will have a large living area with polished timber flooring (approx 55sq.m.) which incorporates the kitchen, dining and lounge areas. This opens on to the front balcony, where there is a large barbeque and dining area. This area is elevated from the road, overlooks the front garden and has views to the Pacific Ocean. There is a second large living area, containing a double sofa bed, which has a bathroom attached. This room also has a balcony with views of the beach.

Something about ourselves
My husband and I are both high school teachers, aged 55, and our youngest child, Marni, is completing her HSC this year. We would all like to travel to Europe when her exams are finished, specifically to the region where France, Italy and Switzerland meet. We would like to have a base in one or two places over the 4-6 weeks we can be away and travel from there to see the area thoroughly, rather than making flying visits to many cities. We enjoy music (listening and playing), gardening, reading, tennis, skiing and renovating our home. We have not been involved in a home exchange before but really like the idea, both for its practicality (afford ability) and also because it is so much more personal than renting out the house and paying rent elsewhere. We are looking forward to meeting the people who will enjoy and care for our home and are sure you will find it a convenient and comfortable place to stay, in a wonderful location.
