Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia

Beautiful, restored, brick Californian Bungalow with white walls and polished floorboards

Introducing

We are a husband and wife with a two and a half year old girl who is properly house trained! I work as a travel writer and photographer, while my husband works as a SAP consultant, part time renovator & hobby pilot plus we run several of our own holiday properties in Melbourne and Daylesford, Victoria. We are frequent travellers given the nature of my job and we love the concept of house swapping in order to see more of the world and to live in another person's shoes/home for a while. We love the countryside, beach, anything with a river running through it, cities. As long as there's a decent cafe nearby we'll love your place and treat it as we do our own (my husband in particularly is fastidious...we have to be given we run our own holiday properties).
