Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

My home is a sunny weatherboard mountain cottage, with large glass windows facing north and outside a sunny veranda. This means there is lots of sun in the winter, but because of the veranda, no sun and cool in summer. There is a mountain view from this veranda and living area. The house is in two sections. The living area, that is open plan consisting of the kitchen and living area with a wood fire stove. This area flows onto a deck with spa and BBQ, This deck area divides the living area from the 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom is large and has an ensuite and walk in robe. The other bedroom looks out onto the back garden, while the third room, used as an office, has an outlook onto a small garden of tree ferns. The back garden is mainly bush with a small formal garden beside the house. This garden gives lots of privacy while still offering north facing mountain views.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

This is my home and in swapping my house I would look after your home as I would my own. That is, I would like to find my home neat and tidy as I have left it for you. I love my garden and while I don't expect visitors to 'garden' I would like you to water plants if there is a need to.
I have a cat, who is friendly, but if animals are not what you like to have around I can arrange alternative accommodation for him, please advise me. If having Dizzy is ok, he is an indoor cat, that is he is INSIDE at night and encouraged to stay indoor as much as possible during the day. This is because of the natural wildlife, mainly birds that is part of the mountain environment.
