Our home

Our single story brick home is in a bushland setting. Nearest neighbour 400metres, Quiet but close to all city amenities. Every visitor remarks on how great our setting is. The house is user friendly, warm or cool depending on the weather and with a huge screened all weather insulated patio, nearly as large as the house which is full of plants & can seat 14+ for meals. Warm Pot belly if required in winter. Ours is an easy care home that welcomes visitors. To sit in the rose arbour on the swinging seat, drink in hand, preferably local wine, or an espresso coffee made on our cafe standard machine, watching the birds come to drink, is a real treat. We often have Koalas, occasional deer, kangaroos and a stunning bird life. Our neighbours sheep help keep the grass mowed and our small number of low care hens provide Free range eggs Yummy, or they can be boarded out for your stay. The garden has fruit trees vegetables and herbs for your use.Lemons all year Oranges and Mandarines for 9 months. Huge grape vine full of grapes in Jan & Feb Rural Bliss, Yes, but close to all the action and to the wineries, beaches and shops. We love our place, living here for over 30 years and have loved and cared for our exchange homes both in Europe and Australia. We have Skype video call system on our computer. The pool area is childproofed to some extent but note the pool is deep.

We have enjoyed the contact made with potential exchangers and have made long lasting friendships with those we have exchanged with, as well as staying in stunning homes.
