Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Ultra conveniently located, our very comfortable apartment is positioned between the city and the beaches.

Introducing

We are a retired air traffic controller and a retired teacher in our 70's and late 60's. Having spent many years living between Australia and the UK, we moved to Sydney to be near our son and his family, who live just up the road from us. Our daughter and son-in-law still live in London, but thankfully love to travel - now keeping up the family tradition and exchanging their own flat. We have done over 30 fantastic house exchanges, with our flat in Lymington in the New Forest and each of our homes in Sydney. Now, we are listing our new home, and look forward to continuing what has become a wonderful way of travelling. We are currently looking for a London exchange for August - October 2019.

About Our Home

We have recently moved into an upmarket, second floor apartment here in Bondi Junction, with views to the city and glimpses of the harbour to the north. We are adjacent to Bondi junction station and terminus, ultra convenient for transport and for all the facilities of this thriving area. The apartment has a great layout, with separate laundry, eat in Galley kitchen, large L shaped living/dining room, and two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has a single bed with a pop-up trundle underneath. There are two bathrooms, both with showers, while the main bathroom includes a bath. Our apartment overlooks the open air spa and swimming pool, heated all year round. This is a very well run building with an in house manager. We have a Toyota Corolla automatic estate, about 10 years old, to include in the exchange

Our Location

Bondi Junction is in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. On the doorstep are all the shops, cafes, restaurants and facilities you would need, including a huge Westfield Mall, as are trains (3km/4 metro stops to city) and buses (20 mins ride to city or Circular Quay). Centennial Park and Queens Park are within fifteen minutes level walk, and within half an hour's walk (or hop on a bus) are the Bronte, Tamarama and Bondi beaches. Should you prefer to drive there, we have a car parking permit. . Often we walk to Bronte Beach for a coffee, then along the fantastic cliff top walkway to Bondi Beach, perhaps stopping for lunch at Icebergs swimming club, then we walk home along Bondi Road. Or you can walk down to Tamarama Beach, then left or right along the cliff to Bondi or Bronte - the choice is yours!

Other Comments

We are retired couple ex air-traffic controller, and ex-teacher, with a variety of interests. We moved from England to Sydney to be near our son and his family once the grand children starter to arrive. We have exchanged homes many times over the years, ever since our children were little, and now our daughter and partner carry on the family tradition with their home in London. They have room for us when we visit but we do like our own space, hence the need for a regular home exchange within easy reach of their place.
