Who we are

  1. I am a function organiser retiring mid 2015. I am Australian but have lived in Cape Town for more than 35 years. I have 2 sons in Sydney and visit Australia often to see family and friends. I could offer a longish swap to expats wanting to visit family (grandchildren) for an extended stay. I have also done swaps in Thailand, UK and Europe and am keen to continue travelling after retirement.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The cottage is in Harfield Village, Claremont with excellent restaurants on the doorstep. Within close proximity to good shopping, Newlands cricket and rugby and 20 minute drive to city. Newlands Forrest, Kirstenbosch Gardens and University of Cape Town are 15 mins away. I am 20 mins from the airport and Indian Ocean beaches. 30 minutes from Atlantic Ocean beaches.

Cape Town is a beautiful city popular with international tourists. It has a mix of outdoor and cultural activities to enjoy. The surrounding winelands are worth a visit.
