Attractions

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

We have 2 golf courses, 7 Registered Clubs / Restaurants, sports fields and many walks nearby, besides all the lake has to offer at any time of the year, due to our very mild and temperate climate when compared with most of Europe and America.
The wonderful thing about our absolute waterfront location is you could literally spend every day, just relaxing on the balcony and watching the 'world go by' if that's what you want - there are always boats going in and out of 'Secret Bay' whether they be small 'tinnies', yachts, kayaks, fishing boats or big cruisers? Also the wildlife is very special with many different parrot species spending all year here including Cockatoos, Galahs, Rosellas, Corellas etc - we have lived here for nearly 15 years and the same pair of Galahs have nested every year in our big nesting box that is literally only about 4 meters from our balcony and we have had the privilege to watch them from mating right through to their babies first attempts at flight! Pelicans and Egrets are feet away.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Our Boutique home is always immaculate as it is so easy to keep clean, with polished floors and rugs and being quite compact it is easy to keep clean - we expect our guests to keep it in this condition for our return.
The garden is also small and the lawn is synthetic, so we expect our few plants, pots and baskets to be watered and the place to be tidy.
