Our home

Inner city single storey terraced house small garden with a leafy feel. Right in the middle of Sydney - walking distance to the heart of the city and harbour, historic Sydney University and minutes from cheap public transport -buses, trains and harbour ferries. A vibrant inner city community.

It's a fairly humble (homey) home - a great sanctuary and base for exploring Sydney without a car. Easy access to outdoor activities (beach and mountains) as well as being right amongst cultural activities - cafes, bookshops theatre and restaurants on the doorstep are its best assets. We are round the corner (two minutes) from train station which is 8 minutes from the city centre and Central Railway Station making easy links to other out of town destinations -Blue mountains, North or South coast of NSW and domestic and international airport.

Who we are

  1. We are a couple in our early fifties who plan to travel extensively and love the idea of having a home base by exchanging with like minded others. With properties here in Sydney and in Brisbane Qld we look forward to hearing from exchangers interested in an Australian experience. We love to sail, cycle, surf, read, listen to music of all kinds (love our old records and getting out to live concerts and theatre - events easy to get to from our house in Sydney without a car) We have a couple of bikes which can stay with the house which is on a main inner city bicycle route.

    This house (Sydney) seems smaller to us these days - has the feel of an apartment. It has a loft in the third bedroom, small kitchen, shower and bath which we plan to renovate this year. There is a small but leafy back garden (photo on site soon).

Your neighbourhood

Mostly small houses and gardens but some very stately large victorian terraces and a park right outside our back gate with children's playground. Sydney University and major hospital are right nearby it is a lively cafe culture area with many great restaruants, music,etc. It's accessible to an olympic swimming pool which is open to the public. You are within easy walking distance of all Sydney has to offer in summer.
