Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

As we have a large family, Christmas time with the family is important to us, so we do not like to exchange in December or early January.

We are experienced exchangers who will treat your house and your belongings with respect and leave your home clean and tidy for your return.
Our home has 3 bedrooms, 2 of which have queen size beds, the other a single bed with trundle, which can be used as two single beds or put together for another queen size bed.
We have a PC plus we also have wifi, if you wish to bring your laptop or tablet.
We have a modern laundry & kitchen with many appliances & good quality pans & sharp knives if you love to cook. There is a large airy dining room with cathedral ceilings & a living room, with a partially sectioned off study at the back of the house overlooking the canal. We have Netflix which you are welcome to use.
We have an ensuite off the master bedroom & another bathroom with separate W.C.
We have a 2 car garage with automatic door.
The house has 2 split system reverse cycle air conditioners to keep it cool in our hot summers, you can also use it to keep warm although our winters are fairly mild. We have a 5 kilowatt solar system on our roof so do not have electricity bills, so please feel free to use the air conditioner as much as you wish. We also have solar hot water.
Outside we have a large outdoor table and chairs undercover, a BBQ and the best feature in summer is our pool. The salt water pool is fully automated so you need not worry about cleaning it or adding chemicals to keep it sparkling.

Our home being all on one level and open plan is very easy to for those with mobility issues to use. The Shower in the main bathroom has no step up, so is also suited.
We have said no children, it is mainly because we have a pool and live on a canal.

In summary we live in a lovely part of the world and would love to share our piece of paradise with you.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live on a man made canal with access to the bay. Our suburb is on a Peninsula, 3 sides surrounded by water. There are plenty of walking & cycling paths. There are safe bay beaches, parks with picnic and BBQ facilities and also outdoor gym equipment in some of them.
The pop group the Bee Gees lived here on the Peninsula when they were growing up and their first performances were here. We now have a wonderful laneway called Bee Gees Way as a tribute to them, with information, memorabilia, and their songs playing continually. It has become very popular with visitors and regular day trippers from Brisbane etc.
During the Whale season, ( June to mid October) there are regular tours and almost certain sightings of the whales during their migration.
Redcliffe is the first settlement city of Queensland.
There are several festivals held during the year, one of the most popular is the Festival of Sails, held each year on Good Friday in conjunction with the Sailing Yacht Race, Brisbane to Gladstone. The Yachts do a Spinnaker run off Suttons Beach, where the Festival is held.
There are now several restaurants on the waterfront on Redcliffe Parade, such as Italian, Greek, Indian, Thai, Mexican, as well as other cafes, clubs and pubs.
Every Sunday on Redcliffe Parade the Parade is closed to traffic as the Jetty Markets are held. These have a farmers Market as well as all sorts of other things. It is a great morning out.
There are several supermarkets and a few specialty shops, however about 15-20 minutes drive is the Westfield Shopping Centre with major department stores and several specialty shops and boutiques.
We have a large Public Hospital, and a Private Hospital, the area is well served with Family Doctors (GP) and Specialists.
The Redcliffe Peninsula is well served by public transport such as buses and we now have a train service ( something we waited over a hundred years for.
The Sunshine Coast with its great surf beaches is about an hour drive north, and the Gold Coast ninety minutes drive.
We have found the Redcliffe Peninsula a great place to live.
