Who we are

  1. Rob is 55, works part-time installing marine engineering. He enjoys home projects. Linda is 49 and is semi-retired. She enjoys reading by the pool, herb gardening, cooking interesting recipes, leisurely breakfasts out. We both enjoy travelling to local and far away destinations. We have no children, but have 2 dogs who will holiday elsewhere while you are here. Sometimes we travel with 2 other adult family members. We are also very interested in exchanging our home and car for a motorhome, RV, caravan, live-aboard motorboat or narrowboat anywhere in the US, UK or Europe. Rob is very mechanical-minded and is a qualified launchmaster and marine mechanic/engineer on both large ocean-going vessels as well as smaller leisure craft. We take very good care of our own things, and would be equally careful of yours. Our past exchanges have been very successful. We have visited different places in the US, UK, New Zealand and Ireland. Please contact is with your exchange ideas. We are open to any interesting destination or travel idea.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The Gold Coast is a premier tourist destination of Australia, and has fantastic weather all year round, white sandy beaches and clean waterways. The fabulous and safe surfing beaches are 10 minutes away, and just 3kms away is the Broadwater - protected calm water for sailing, swimming, boating, fishing, and canoeing. Being surrounded by waterways and the ocean, fishing is a popular activity from local coastal fishing to off-shore deep sea charters. If you are a food lover, the Gold Coast is home to some very good restaurants. The local seafood is inexpensive, there are lots of tropical fruits and vegetables all year round and Australian wines are terrific! If you are a nature lover, the hinterland and mountains are only 30 mins drive away - you can enjoy rainforest, bushwalking trails, waterfalls, clear mountain streams and rockpools in National & World Heritage listed parks and forests, and enjoy our native Australian flora and fauna in their natural habitat. Further afield, Fraser Island (the world's largest National Park sand island) is a 4. 5 hour drive north. (not far by Australian standards). The shopping centres are 5 minutes from our home, with the largest shopping mall in the southern hemisphere (Pacific Fair). There is a Factory Outlet Shopping Mall 5 minutes drive away. For the kids there are theme parks all within 15 mins drive - Movieworld, Seaworld, Dreamworld, Wet & Wild Waterpark There are over 30 Golf Courses in the area.
