Given our work situation, we will only consider swaps with houses that have fast internet.

= marks the location of this home
Melbourne has been voted one of the world's most liveable cities and the waterside area of St Kilda is one of its most vibrant and trendy. At the back of our house is a large and leafy Botanic Gardens. Within easy walking distance from our house are over 50 restaurants and cafes plus a safe and calm swimming beach. A car would be useful but not necessary. There is public transport easily accessible and Melbourne CBD is only 15 minutes by tram from the end of our street.
