Our home

We offer a quiet, peaceful and sun-filled house just five minutes' drive from Sydney Harbour and the surf beach at Manly. . We have three bedrooms, one with one single bed, one with two beds, and one with a queen size bed and its own en-suite shower room. (There's a view to the Pacific Ocean from this bedroom window!) There is a large living /dining room, with sliding double doors which give on to a large terrace, where we eat most days, under a pergola covered with grape vines which provide shade in the summer. The garden is small but very pretty.

Who we are

  1. We are Richard and Cynthia, a semi-retired married couple. Richard is a composer and former broadcasting executive, and Cynthia, who formerly worked for the BBC, now does some part-time teaching.

    We are hoping to visit Italy ( especially Rome and Assisi) during June 2006. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to make plans, and get to know our fellow exchangers via email first.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated in a picturesque, leafy and peaceful residential area about a mile from Manly. There is a group of shops a short walk up the road, which sells everything you need. Buses take you down to Manly, but it's better to have your own car. Manly is a lively, cosmopolitan seaside resort, whose main street stretches from the ferry wharf on the Harbour side to a huge surf beach on the ocean side. It has numerous spectacular walks along both ocean front, and harbouside.

From Manly you can catch the ferry to Sydney city (30 minutes) which gives you a wonderful view of the harbour, or the Jet-cat which takes only 15 minutes.
