Our home

Our home is 7 years old; modern open living design, air conditioning/heating, with lots of outdoor entertainment area with views over Hardys Bay. (See Google Earth Hardys Bay). Killcare is a small seaside village, approximately 70 kms north of Sydney (much of that is freeway). Our village has 4 cafes/restaurants, a fish a chips shop, a pub with a licensed restaurant, a newsagent/general store, a liquor store, a post office, and a boat marina - just the way we like it! Major shopping is a short distance away. It feels like the country, is away from the hussle and bussle of the big city, but is easily accessible to Sydney by car, train or ferry. It is a popular tourist destination, considered upmarket, and during holiday periods the population tends to expand rapidly.

Who we are

  1. We are non-smokers and ask only that guests refrain from smoking inside the house.
    Car exchange is available.
    We have one Dog. She is a Bichon Frise… small, clean, white, and doesn't shed.
    She likes to travel with us if it's in Australia and ok with you. Of course, she stays home when we go overseas. When she stays home, it can be either at the house (preferable - and we have a dog sitter for those times you want to be away) or, if necessary, we can arrange for her to be looked after. We are happy to reciprocate and look after pets in your home.

    We are a retired couple,from professional jobs as an Architect (Digby) and a Computer Marketing Executive (Marilyn). We love to travel. We moved to Australia from Canada 25+ years ago - loved the country and stayed!

    We have exchanged quite a few times and it has always been a wonderful experience. Our longest exchange was with a Paris couple for 6 months and they loved the area. In 2006 we did 3 overseas exchanges (and a couple of Australia ones too) to Vancouver, Zurich and Hong Kong. Then in 2007 we have been to London, Toulon and Umbria - all exchanges and wonderful experiences. Everyone, without question, loved Killcare - it's a small piece of undisturbed paradise if that interests you.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are surrounded by National Parks and water, so there is plenty of ‘outdoor’ activity in the area, like bush walks, surfing, swimming, boating, fishing, kayaking etc. The Hunter Valley Wine Region is approx 1 1/2 hours drive from us, where you might see a few kangaroos in the wild as well as taste some good Australian wines if that's your fancy. There are plenty of beautiful beaches and beach villages to explore all around us. Ten minutes from us is a commuter train station which will take you to the centre of Sydney in approx. 1 hr 5 minutes.
It's a very peaceful place if that's what you want, but with lots of activity within easy reach if you want that.
