Home Exchange, Long-term Exchange (1 month plus), Open to offers

Given that the flight to Australia is so long we would like to swap for a minimum of one month - ideally for longer (up to three months) depending on the timing. At the moment we are actively seeking an exchange on the Sunshine Coast in November/December 2019 so if anyone fancies Christmas in the UK please do get in touch.

We are also open to potential swaps in the UK's spring or autumn/winter 2020. Although the Sunshine Coast is top of our current wish list. However, we would also be interested in exploring Western Australia around Perth and/or to returning to Sydney or Melbourne.

Our home is an attractive semi-detached period property with lots of original features in a quiet road just steps away from the seafront. It's just a short walk to the shops and cafes of Herne Bay - a perfect location from which to explore the area.

It sleeps six in three attractive double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a super king sized bed and TV. There is a family bathroom upstairs with separate bath and shower plus a downstairs cloakroom.

There are two comfortable living rooms: one with a 40 inch TV with Netflix and the other with CD player and patio doors onto the garden. The large kitchen/diner is fully equipped with washer, dishwasher etc. On a nice day you can wander outside and sit in the garden which has a patio table and chairs.

There is central heating and wi-fi.

John and I are a 'mature' couple who are both now retired. John was formerly a professional cricketer and I was a marketing director and, following completion of my PhD, a researcher. Now that we have lots of free time, we would like to travel more and experience our first house swap. We both love Australia and have been lucky enough to visit a number of times over the years, especially Sydney and Melbourne (where John played cricket during the UK winter). We would particularly like to explore the Sunshine Coast and Western Australia and would also be interested in a swap in Sydney.
