Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our home is a remmovated federation style Californian Bungalow from the 1950's. It is free standing on a 700m2 block. It has Leadlight doors and polished floor boards (jarrah) through most the house. It has two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (both with bath and shower). There is another sitting area with couch (that folds out to a bed if needed). We have gardens front and back with trees and shade and a mains gas barbecue. The gardens are reticulated (automatic watering). The well appointed kitchen is open plan with a breakfast bench and dining table. The kitchen has a large walk in pantry with a double fridge freezer. The dining room opens into a glassed conservatory which then opens onto the front deck space. There is a small library and a lounge room with a 50" TV (no 'cable'). There is air conditioning, gas heating and monitored alarm system. The garage (2 cars - optional) has an automatic door and space for more cars. The house is our home and therefore we have lots of photos from our travels.

Our house is in Wembley, Perth Western Australia (go to Google map shows it is between the beach and city <4km each way) To the West 4km we have miles of beaches. Floreat Beach and City Beachhttp://www.cambridge.wa.gov.au are local and Cottesloe to the south towards Fremantle. Thjis is a great central location for Perth. We are 2 km from Bold Park and 4 kms from the Perth City and Kings Park http://www.bgpa.wa.gov.au Within 2km we have a 36 hole Public Golf course http://www.wembleygolf.com.au Lake Monger and a bird sanctuary (feed the black swans) a large shopping complex and Subiaco shopping district. Close by (local shops <1km) include a Pub, family food hall, coffee shops, bakery, grocery store, restaurants, police station, petrol station, post office, travel agent, etc. There are many cycle paths around Perth and we have two bikes to offer. Public transport to the city is fast by bus. Driving a car in Perth compared to most large cities is a dream. Perth is clean and safe.
Something about ourselves
Helen and Garry are both university Professors, in our 50'syrs no children and do not smoke. We travel a lot and are independent travelers. We have visited about 55 countries in the past 30 years. We try to travel every year - for up to 3 weeks at a time. Our last exchange was to Sri Lanka - it was brilliant. We have a gold fish in the backyard pond but it is well trained and looks after itself. We are always looking for a couple of weeks away over Christmas (our summer) - to trade the sun and blue skies? for something different. We are also available other times of the year when we have some international work. We are happy to consider house swap for short period or a hospitality exchange - but we are happy for you to email us to make contact. We are also renovating an old Church 100km out of Perth. see last picture.
