Our home

Our sixth floor apartment has two bedrooms, main living area and a study. The outstanding feature is the view. Across the street is the ocean and picturesque boat harbour. To the north is the beach. The apartment building dates from the 1970's but our apartment is fully renovated. Apart from the main bathroom (shower but no bath) is a small ensuite off the main bedroom. The kitchen is fully modernised with dishwasher and has a beautiful view of the beach. We have reverse cycle air conditioning throughout the unit. The bedrooms are on the small side, the main one has a queen sized bed and the second bedroom has a double bed. There is a sofa bed in the study. The living area is reasonably spacious & includes a small computer nook with printer and wifi. There is no balcony but the view is visible from all points of the living room. We have an excellent cleaner who visits fortnightly. Car exchange could be considered by negotiation. Our car is a hybrid, automatic drive. We have an elderly rescue cat who we would want to stay in our apartment as he had a fairly rough time before we adopted him.

Who we are

  1. We are a senior couple, John And Lynne who are both retired professionals. Our children flew the nest long ago. W have done 3 successful house swaps and can guarantee that we will treat your home with respect. While our home is easy care our belongings are precious to us and we are looking for people who look after things, such as our antique furniture. We have travelled fairly widely and decided to try house swaps in 2013, which worked out very well. Now that we are older we need to take things more slowly than tours allow and a home exchange is ideal. We would also like others to have the opportunity to experience the beautiful area in which we live. We are open to offers anywhere. We respond to all emails as soon as possible.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Wollongong lies between the escarpment and the sea. From our apartment it is a short walk to a patrolled surfing beach and ocean baths are even closer. It is a fifteen minute walk or short drive to an indoor heated pool & sports centre. Restaurants are very close by. A regular free shuttle bus stops across the road and goes to the railway station and CBD, where there are cinema, theatres, many cafes and restaurants, shops and a department store. Central Sydney takes an hour and a half to get to by train. There is a small zoo about 20 minutes drive away. It has a range of native animals including kangaroos, koalas and Tasmanian devils. You can take day trips to attractive towns such as Kangaroo Valley, Bundeena, Kiama and the coastline north and south is studded with beautful beaches. Canberra is about two and a half hours' drive to the south. There are national parks both north and south and lots of scope for bushwalking or cycling (you would have to bring your own bikes or hire them). There is also a popular bike track next to the ocean across the road from our building. Wollongong has a good golf club as well as other clubs offering reasonably priced meals. On special occassions firework displays take place on the local headland and can be seen from our apartment. During migration season whales can sometimes be seen in the distance from our window.
