Our home

This is a large comfortable beach style home at Merewether close to Darby street cafe scene. It has reverse cycle air conditioning in the main living space. Walking distance to Bar beach and famous Merewether beach. Situated just 1 km south of Newcastle. The house is easy care with a large court yard, double garage. The combined huge main bedroom and ensuite bathroom is upstairs and away from the rest of the bedrooms and contains a spa bath. There are some stairs in the front of this house and to the upstairs main bedroom, therefore this house is not suitable for toddlers and those with mobility problems.
We have adult children in the city who would help with local information if needed.

COUNTRY RETREAT - We can also offer a visit to our rural property 2 hours north, in very scenic Gloucester, in the foothills of the Barrington National ParK and Gloucester Tops. This is a 320 acre cattle property with undulating and beautiful hill views on a river location. The 2 bedroom cottage is new and set up for easy stays.

Who we are

  1. We are non smoking early sixties retired engineer and university tutor. Our children are grown up. In June 2016 we are keen to spend time in England, Wales , Scotland,and France . We would like a base to explore your countryside by cycle touring or walking. We could be more flexible than the dates given and would consider asynchronous exchanges. We are very careful with our home and would treat your home very carefully too. We also have a beef cattle farm at Gloucester that can be visited. A Subaru Forester might be possible for a vehicle exchange to the UK.
    We would also like to spend some time in NZ or Tasmania for a month from November 2015 to March 2016 .
