Hi our names are Glenn and Melinda we are a retired couple who love to travel. We have just returned home from three fabulous months in sunny Spain and Portugal. Having met many wonderful people and made new friends we are now eagerly looking forward to our next home swap, perhaps it will be with you! As well as travel we are passionate about sailing,gardening,history,art,music and the countryside. We live on an acreage estate in a rain forest 6 minutes drive from the nearest village and approximately 20 minutes drive from the resort seaside town of Noosa on Queensland's Sunshine Coast Australia.
About Our Home
'Kingfisher Bend' is a country estate on 12 lush acres in the Sunshine Coast Noosa Hinterland. Surrounded by rain forest and bordered by its own private creek it is a bird lovers and bush walkers paradise yet is close to all that the fabulous resort town of Noosa has to offer. Our countryside home features lovely rural and garden views from every one of its spacious, cool and airy open plan rooms. Wide verandahs and numerous living areas offer cosy reading nooks. The family suite offers 2 queen size bedrooms downstairs with a two way bathroom, small study and a large comfy television room with well stocked library.
