Our home

We have a spacious 5 bedroom family home in Hampton with long garden and front parking for 2 cars in a safe, friendly cul de sac. We have just finished extending and renovating our house, which now has a large living room with open plan kitchen/dining area, 2 queen-bedded bedrooms, 1 double, 1 single, and a cot room, 2 ensuite bathrooms with jacuzzi baths, 1 with a shower, utility room and study. All rooms are centrally heated.
We have a barbeque in the back yard and outdoor tables and chairs, grass and a sand pit and play house for children!

Who we are

  1. I am Australian but have been working as a lawyer in London for 11 years now and married to a Swedish writer (read about his latest book on www.foatebooks.com) . He works from home and looks after our baby girl, who is 21 months old. I had a baby boy in September and we plan to spend half of my maternity leave in Sydney, Australia visiting my family and friends. Living so far away, my parents expect us to bring their grandchildren over at least once a year to visit! And my husband loves Australia as much as I do!
    I would love to arrange a house exchange so we do not have to stay with my mother in the Southern Highlands the whole time we visit Australia. My father is in Sydney but has no room for us! I would also like to spend a few weeks in NZ visiting friends and family and showing my husband around the country where I was born!
    Also next May-June 2012 we would like to take a 2 week holiday in the Northern Hemisphere - USA, Caribbean or SOuth America, so are looking for a home exchange then too, either by the beach or in a vibrant city with lots to explore.
