A pretty 1926 detached house in 3/4 acre, mostly tree and grass/moss(slow grow)garden and beautiful no maintenance flower beds. Gardener/handyman available. A very homely, comfortable house furnished in keeping. It has a spacious hall with study area, very large sitting room with tv, stereo, etc. and real log burning fireplace, separate dining room and further family/breakfast room. Farmhouse style kitchen with gas "aga" range, plus modern electric double oven, gas hob and microwave. South facing (sun), the garden is a joy and has a small summer house.

Who we are

  1. We are a 60+ married couple of 40yrs. I am a retired airline captain and my wife a longterm housewife. We have daughters in Hong Kong and Taiwan, one of whom is naturalized Australian. We have been to Australia several times and will be there on this proposed visit to decide if we wish to emigrate. We would like to swap for 6 weeks or more, but recognize the need for flexibility.

    Somewhere between Noosa and Maroochydore, or a little further south, North of Brisbane, would work well. Our timescale is flexible from very soon throughout the year.

    Non-simultaneous swaps considered.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are 1.5hrs drive, or 2 hrs direct bus link from Heathrow airport, in a very desirable spot on the Dorset coast, a few minutes level walk from the cliff tops/beaches. There are local shops and only 3 miles drive from 2 town centres of Poole and Bournemouth, with all shopping facilities. The purbeck hills in Dorset and the ancient "new forest" are very close. The local beaches are award winning and sandy. There are lots of places of interest within 1 hr's drive, including Winchester, Salisbury, Dorchester and Stonehenge. Bath is 2 hrs drive and London accessible hourly by train under 2 hrs. This is a UK south coast holiday area, but never "packed", with good micro climate, many local beauty spots and points of interest and is a highly enjoyable place to live.
