Our home

Our home is a comfortable family home situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in Ballsbridge. The cul-de-sac, which has it's own green area is quiet and private yet is only minutes from all the amenities that you might need.

Upstairs we have three bedrooms, a double (en-suite), the second bedroom has two sleeping areas, one of them a mezzanine area, a single room and a bathroom.

Downstairs is a large open plan area with kitchen, dining area, computer work area and seating area. We also have a separate sitting room, utility room, downstairs toilet and a playroom in the backgarden. The playroom has some gym equipment as well as a considerable collection of Lego. In the house we also have an Xbox, Wii, games, DVD's etc.

We have a good sized sunny and private back garden with a paved area and barbeque. There are bikes available and a seven seater car available to swap.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of five. My husband is a manager with the city council and I work full-time as a teacher in the post primary sector. We have three sons ages 21,18 and 14. We love sport and the outdoors and like to combine warm weather with sight seeing and outdoor activities on our main holidays. We have a preference for seaside or waterside locations or somewhere with access to a pool. We would also be interested in short city breaks during the school breaks. We are open to offers and will consider all locations. We have completed three house swaps, one in California and two in Spain, and found them all to be really enjoyable experiences.
