Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Experienced exchanger: Ten International exchanges- UK -Bath, London, Somerset, Wales & Cambridge. France - Paris, Compiegne. Turkey - Bodrum

In 2019 - June -Aug., I am interested in simultaneous or non-simultaneous exchanges in Paris in France, Turin and Tuscany in Italy, Devon and Lake District in the UK.

The cottage at Goonengerry, is situated on the east coast of New South Wales, standing on an acre together with a main house. It is separate but adjacent to the main house (see photos). It has spectacular views overlooking the valley and down to the Pacific Ocean and Byron Bay. It is a short drive - 10 mins - to the township of Mullumbimby, 25 mins to the renown beaches of Byron Bay, Brunswick Heads and Lennox Heads. It is 50 mins from the International airport on the Gold Coast, 2 hours freeway drive to Brisbane and an hour and a quarter flight to Sydney from the local airport at Ballina (40 mins away).

Wonderful walks abound - ocean adventures (to see dolphins anytime or whales in the winter months) rainforest walks, walks to waterfalls and local bush walks into the small Goonengerry National Park at the end of our road. Two bikes are available for use (one with a child seat attached).

There are many different eateries boasting various cuisines (e.g. Doma a well known Japanese cafe is 5 mins down the hill at Federal, and there are other lovely quaint villages (e.g. Bangalow, 20 mins drive) with excellent eating and shopping. There are markets in different nearby towns each Sunday and the fabulous Mullumbimby Farmers Markets every Friday at Mullumbimby Showground, or Byron and Bangalow farmers markets on Wed., and Sat., respectively.

Live music is also another speciality of the region with a great variety of venues and annual festivals (Byron's Bluesfest (Easter), Falls (January), Splendour in the Grass (September) and Mullumbimby's Music festival (Nov) all just a short drive from the cottage, and also Byron Bay Writer's Festival (August) - 20 mins drive away.

The cottage has recently been built (2018) to a high standard. It is very comfortable with verandahs/decks to capture the wonderful views. It is surrounded by an established garden (with play equipment for young children) and has a modern kitchen and bathroom, wifi Internet, Smart TV, and all mod cons - microwave, washer etc. Comfortably sleeps 2 and in a separate foyer (that can be closed off for privacy) it can sleep a single or couple, or young children (we can provide a portable cot, high chair etc).

In the adjacent main house is a family of 3 - my adult daughter, a University lecturer, and her two children 6 & 3, and a friendly labrador (Sunshine). I live in the cottage, so it is set up as a fully functioning home not a holiday let, I am semi retired and come and go due to contract work commitments - so it is frequently available.
