Who we are

  1. Something about ourselves
    We are a well travelled retired couple –( my husband a professional civil engineer and I worked in the corporate world for more years than I can remember!). We have three grown up children with their own families and now travelling is a priority for us. Our youngest son and his family live in Willoughby in Sydney and we try to visit regularly. We like to go to new places and experience new things. We love good food, nature, hiking and the outdoors. We are very clean living, neat and don't smoke but do enjoy a glass of good wine. We love our home and would like to share with like minded well educated people who would take good care of our home. We have not swapped houses before so this is a new experience for us. We are flexible with our travel dates any time from August 2014 onwards for short stays for 2 or 3 weeks , or longer ones for a few months. We are also happy to do a non-simultaneous swop.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is in Constantia, an upmarket suburb 15km south of the centre of Cape Town, South Africa. With its oak lined avenues, unspoilt green belts, views of Table Mountain and the world renown vineyards Groot Constantia, Buitenverwachting, Steenberg, and Constantia Uitsig (dating back to the 1600’s), all within a few minutes’ drive from our home, Constantia Valley is very relaxing and beautiful.
A quick 5 minute walk from our house is Constantia Village Shopping Centre which caters for all needs from groceries, to excellent restaurants, banks, pharmacy, dress shops. Constantia is conveniently situated 30 minutes drive from Cape Town international airport, and 30 minutes to Cape Town city centre with its museums, the Waterfront area, or to vibey Camps Bay, Clifton beaches, Table Mountain and many more tourist attractions. A short 20 minutes drive away are many different walks, hikes, golf courses, sandy beaches, sailing, fishing or surfing but remember in South Africa the public transport is not reliable so a car is essential. We do not have a swimming pool but the gym, walking distance from us, has all the facilities.
