Attractions

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

Apart from the many beaches and the multitude of cafes and restaurants, this is also an attractive area for walking, with a variety of tracks offering magnificent panoramic seascapes. The closest café is 10 minutes walk away and a modern shopping mall is 18 minutes by foot. There is an hourly bus service to Manly Beach and return. The famous Manly ferry sails to the city's Circular Quay at regular intervals. A free community bus also runs at hourly intervals to the nearest shopping mall, with connections to other complimentary routes. Express buses to and from the city operate from the city during peak periods Monday - Friday. If you have children, it would be beneficial to have access to a car, especially if you wish to explore the northern beaches. A stroll to Forty Baskets beach and a coffee at Forty Beans café on your way home is a great way to start the day. Alternatively, head up the hill to Tania Park and grab a coffee and croissant at the Ball Boy café on the way.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

It is important that our home is clean and tidy. We have a large garden which may require watering. We will arrange garden maintenance for longer exchanges. We require the windows and doors locked during absences. Should we agree to exchange cars, we will ensure appropriately licenced drivers are covered by comprehensive car insurance and we expect our exchangers to do the same. Our sons and their partners, who live locally, can provide assistance as required (outside of work hours). We have excellent neighbours and we would appreciate your consideration of their wellbeing.
