We are Bee and Derek, a mature, well-travelled couple with no children at home. Originally from England, we have lived for many years in Australia.... in Sydney, Melbourne and now in Queensland. I work in PR whilst Derek is a District Sales Manager for an international Engineering Company. We are very enthusiastic and experienced exchangers and have done over 60 in the last 14 years. The concept has brought us much fun, excitement and many new friendships both in Australia and overseas. We are open to all exchange offers; close to home or on the other side of the world although admittedly we are happiest in warm climates. Unfortunately our home is not suitable for children. We have one cat, who would only be resident for simultaneous exchanges, and would be delighted to care for yours.
About Our Home
We live in a beautiful part of the Sunshine Coast close to white sand beaches, the Maroochy River and the Blackall Range ... with a world-class golf course at the top of our street. The house has plenty of natural light and an open-plan design incorporating a granite/stainless steel kitchen, living area, indoor and outdoor dining areas plus a terrace overlooking the pool and lagoon. There are 3 bedrooms plus a separate fully equipped office, 2 bathrooms with spa bath, a double garage and air-conditioning. This is our main home, used for home exchanging but never rented.

Twin Waters is on the Sunshine Coast, only 10 minutes drive to Mooloolaba and Maroochydore, 25 minutes to Noosa and 1 hour to Brisbane. Just a few minutes walk from our home is the Twin Waters Golf Course where kangaroos can be seen grazing at the end of the day. We are close to Mudjimba beach, a stunning strip of white sand, stretching 8 kilometres from the Maroochy River to the Hyatt Coolum Beach Resort. The area is a walkers paradise with dedicated paths for pedestrians and bikes. The Sunshine Coast has some excellent restaurants (try "The Boat Shed" on the river at Maroochydore and "High Tide" beside Mudjimba beach), great shopping - including the markets of Eumundi and the craft stores of the mountain villages - fishing, surfing, diving, kayaking, sailing and other sporting facilities. A 30 minute drive will take you to the Blackall Range for some dramatic terrain and spectacular views of mountains, valleys, rainforests and the Pacific Ocean. Whilst 3 hours to the north is Fraser Island with its acclaimed golden beaches ... and Hervey Bay for whale watching. We are close to Sunshine Coast Airport which has regular low-cost services with Virgin and Jetstar direct to Sydney and Melbourne. Brisbane International Airport is an hour away with a shuttle bus service to our home.
