It has the feeling of a resort style getaway with many full length windows tranquil outdoor entertaining area with a large split level deck complete with luxurious Spa (fenced). The living areas open onto decks via bifold doors creating the perfect indoor/outdoor living zone which is ideal for entertaining. There is a Gas BBQ large outdoor table many chairs and sunbed as well as outdoor hot and cold shower.
We have a funky kitchen with S/S bench and stools and S/S appliances including dishwasher.There's also a European Laundry and 2 bathrooms. There are two living areas one is the Dining room with cane chairs, table and cosy library with recliner chair. This is also a lovely bird watching spot. The lounge room has full length windows north and south with views over the deck and large garden and reserve beyond.Here there are more casual outdoor settings.
The lounge room has two black leather couches, bean bags and antique dining table and chairs. We have a large flat screen TV and Foxtel Paid TV channels, DVD player and Stereo system. Our home has mostly polished boards with scattered rugs. The bedrooms are carpeted. The master bedroom has an ensuite TV, DVD player and glass doors opening onto a deck.

The relaxed feeling and clever design of our home enables everyone to enjoy their stay.

We suggest using a car for other beautiful Mornington Peninsula sights and tourist attractions.

Who we are

  1. We are Jane and Tim a semi- retired married couple. My husband is an Actor (they never retire) and I am a teacher in the Disability field. We have three adult children who live interstate and overseas. We have four grandchildren. We have been fortunate to live in England for many years and South Africa. Our hobbies are many outdoor activities that take you close to nature. We do enjoy entertaining friends and family. We also adore film and the entertainment industry.
    We love to travel anywhere. We find the more we travel the more we want to travel. Our son lives in USA so we're always open to travel there. We also adore UK and Europe and would love to exchange a house almost anywhere. Then there are countries we haven't been to like Canada, the Caribbean and South America. We want to keep travelling while we can.
    We haven't done home exchange before but we have friends who have many times. All their experiences have been positive. We like the idea of emailing, chatting and skyping people before we do an exchange.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula just over an hour's drive from Melbourne with a new freeway. This Peninsula is known as a popular holiday resort as it is not too far from the City of Melbourne and it has something to offer everyone in just a small area.
Under 1km from our home -
we have the pristine Port Philip Bay beaches with white sand swimming, sailing, fishing, snorkeling and diving. The Dive Shop and fishing shop are at the end of our road. There's also Parasailing in summer. We have markets, cafes, diners, ice -creameries, restaurants and entertainment clubs, venues and a hotel and of course shops. They're all within a short walking distance from our home which is handy.
Under 5 kms from our home -
we have beautiful Ocean surf beaches, Peninsula Hot Springs which are natural mineral springs. They have a variety of massages and treatments and a cafe. We highly recommend these. We also have Dunes Golf Club and Cups winery. Our countryside is rural and farmers markets are popular.
A few more Kilometers and you can discover many outstanding wineries in the Red Hill Area renown for their Pinot Noir, fantastic boutique shopping in Sorrento, wonderful trail walks and bike paths around the coast to Point Nepean. There are at least 6 more golf courses, many bay and surf beaches, fabulous restaurants, galleries and a car ferry across Port Philip Bay to the historic Queenscliff. Here you can swim with dolphins or seals or just enjoy the ambience of Queenscliff's Grand Hotels.
There is a bus and train to Melbourne and Portsea but we would recommend a taxi or car to visit many sights and delightful nearby towns. We are happy to make our car available.
