Our home

"Casa da Praia", our beach home is less than 4 minutes walk to the beach and just 90 minutes drive from Sydney (also accessible by public transport). There are outstanding views from each level of the house. Check out our personal website photos ( The house is well-equipped with modern appliances including CD stereo with Bose speakers and 106cm plasma TV with home theatre, DVD and surround sound. Two double bedrooms means that it is ideally suited for one or two couples - extras can sleep on the window seat in the sun room (Maximum occupancy - 6). Due to stairs and elevated decks, Casa da Praia is not suitable for children 1-5 years but older children OK.

Volkswagon Polo (manual, 4 door) available for car exchange subject to insurance checks.

    Also open to exchanges within Australia (especially Tasmania or South Australia) anytime.

Your neighbourhood

The beach is patrolled by lifeguards over the warmer months (Oct-April). Snorkel around the rocks to see a variety of fish. Explore the tidepools at either end of the beach and clamber over the rocks. The beach adjoins a national park with walking trails and other beaches. The Hunter Valley premier wine region is 90 minutes drive away and there are other scenic attractions in the area. See for information about the Central Coast.
