Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We are experienced home exchangers following our swaps in Switzerland, Canada, the US, UK, Norway and The Netherlands. Our exchange families and ours have all had great experiences. We really enjoy our travels and love exchanging, learning about different countries and cultures and meeting their people.

We live in a spacious home right on the oceanfront. Our home has ocean views across Slade Bay with a lawn leading down to the water. The home has been built for the tropical aspect and to make the best of the ocean views. The large outdoor BBQ / entertainment area leads onto the ocean side pool with spectacular views from pool side or the upstairs bedrooms and verandah.

All living areas and bedrooms are air conditioned with three bedrooms located on the upstairs level (main with en-suite) and one on the lower floor (with en-suite).

We will need to be staying closer to home for the 2021 Australian academic year as our twins are heading into their last year of school. Hence we are looking for closer exchanges in New Zealand or Australia during the year but open to exchanges from North America and Europe over December 2021 - January 2022.
