From the word go, we just clicked with Jan and Jeff and met them 'en-route' for a pie and coffee to get all the gen about each others homes - their house was beautifully presented and located in a garden 'to die for!' - Vincentia is in Jervis Bay and is next to Huskisson with it's great Harbour and Cruises to see the dolphins/whales, plus good Clubs, pubs and restaurants and things to do ! Only a street back from a superb beach, so I was able to swim every morning after a very short walk - perfect for me as I have some health issues which require me to swim every day if possible and can't walk very far - Margaret made up for me however with long walks along the un-spoilt golden beach - a sensational exchange in a lovely area.
A 'stone's-throw' from the brilliant white sands of Collingwood Beach, Jan and Jeff's very attractive, contemporary and spacious home provided us with an ideal beachside exchange. What a thrill to find that, in addition to this lovely home, there is such an exquisite garden; with its sculpture, mirrors and its extensive array of plant life - each nook unveiling a new surprise. Colourful and abundant birdlife as well as visiting kangaroos were an added bonus. Ours was a comfortable, rewarding and seamless exchange highlighted by clear and precise communication. Thank you, Jan and Jeff
As this was a simultaneous exchange within the state, we took the opportunity of meeting Jan and Jeff half-way between Sydney and Vincentia to exchange keys and last minute arrangements. It was a delight to get to know them if only briefly. We all share a great love of walking. Their home is perfectly located to explore Jervis Bay and the surrounding National Parks. Jan and Jeff's comfortable home and exceptionally beautiful garden was in a very convenient location. Collingwood Beach is a short walk across the road and many N.P. walks within a short driving distance. We look forward to visiting the area again soon.
Jervis Bay and Vincentia are in a beautiful area. There are so many beaches with white sand and crystal clear water, most with no facilities and the beaches were not crowded. If you enjoy walking there are endless bush walks all within a short drive from the house. We received a warm welcome from Jeff and Jan, their home is comfortable and has everything you need. The garden is stunning and we enjoyed the visits from the colourful birds and a kangaroo! A great exchange from which we have wonderful memories.
