Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac on a high ridge with a fantastic ocean outlook. The views are magnificent with a 180 degree sweep of the ocean from Honeysuckle Hill to Broken Head - perfect for whale watching from June to October. The house backs onto a lush National Park bush strip with direct access to a track leading to the beach, just a short stroll away. The town is within easy reach by car, bike or on foot.

The deck looking out to the ocean is alluring and we find ourselves gravitating there throughout the day. There’s also a lovely verandah off the bedrooms that has mountain views and is a perfect spot to soak up the last rays of the sun.

The lounge/dining/kitchen is open plan with sweeping views over the treetops to the ocean. It is surrounded by decks.

We travel frequently. When we're in Byron we stay in a basement apartment beneath the main house.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Byron Bay is one of Australia’s premier holiday destinations. This area of Byron Bay is a gem. It’s quiet, serene, an easy walk to an uncrowded beach and yet within easy reach of all the action Byron has to offer. We absolutely love it.
See www.visitbyronbay.com

There are two trendy cafes – the Top Shop and the Roadhouse – within a 1 km walk and Byron's main street is 2km away.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Byron Bay is the most easterly point of mainland Australia. Its lighthouse is iconic and a must see. There's road access as well as a variety of scenic walks to the top of the headland.

From our house there is a lovely, headland walk to the famous Top Shop where you can sit on the grass and sample the best coffee in town. A place to be seen! Byron has several live music venues as well as its own theatre, cinema, over 50 restaurants, many galleries and monthly markets - sometimes held on the beachfront, as well as festivals such as the Blues, and the now famous Writer's festival. The surfing beaches of Lennox Head and the Pass are world renowned and a surf lesson is a must. It's easier than you think! The rainforest walks of many ancient National Parks are nearby as are quaint villages and towns, with the famous Gold Coast (and it's theme parks) just an hour's drive away and the cultural city of Brisbane just a 2 hour drive north.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Notes:

* We're always interested in exchanges to Melbourne as our adult children live there.

Preferences: We've recently retired, Johan had his own Computer Consulting business & Lucie was a teacher and then Business Analyst. We enjoy travel, and have been house swapping since 2001. Our three adult children live in Melbourne and we intend to spread our time between Byron, Melbourne and overseas.
Our preferences are Melbourne and surrounding areas, France, Italy, England and South Africa. But we're open to all offers.

We're experienced home exchangers. Exchange terms are negotiable.
We love the arts, fine dining, walks and a healthy lifestyle

Rules: We are a Non-Smoking household and as we are near a sandy beach we ask that shoes be left at the front door & dishes be rinsed before being loaded into the dishwasher.
