Hello! We are a family of 3 who love to travel! We recently finished renovating our highset house in Brisbane, Qld and would love to do some swaps. We love the outdoors, beach, hiking, skiing and just generally exploring wherever we are. I (Tennille) am a wedding photographer and my job has taken me all over Australia and most recently to Italy and New Zealand. We would love to use the wedding season down time (June - August + Dec - Jan) to travel during Australian school holidays. My husband John is an electrician and our daughter Isla is five, and has just started school this year. We have family in Stockholm, Sweden we would LOVE to visit, and our favourite place in the world is Queenstown, NZ, but are pretty much open to swapping anywhere! We are house proud and will treat your home as if it was our own, and would expect the same from our visitors (which would include watering our many plant babies please!). We can't wait to do some swaps!
About Our Home
Our family home has one master bedroom with king size bed (comfiest bed in the entire world!), second kids bedroom with single bed and we also have a third bedroom which has been converted to an office however we do use this for guests and it can accommodate another 2 people in a fold out bed. Our home has recently been renovated and has a new kitchen, bathroom with rain shower and bathtub and large undercover deck to enjoy the best of what Queensland weather has to offer. Our house is child friendly and we have a large yard to be enjoyed also. Our neighbours are friendly and very helpful should you need anything. Our living and kitchen is nice and open plan, with a large island bench for hanging out and cooking in the kitchen. The bifold doors open out into the large undercover deck and we pretty much have them open all year (except for the 2 weeks of winter that we get in Brisbane!). Our living room as TV, with all freeview channels plus a Chromecast, which you can use to cast any streaming apps (Netflix, Stan, youtube, etc) to the TV. We also have a media player where you can plug in your external hard drive and play movies to the TV. We have 2 adult bikes and one kids bike and a scooter available for your use also. Our yard has a trampoline, swing set and a kids cubby house! Our home would suit a couple of small family :) Please note we do have a cat and a dog which will go visiting the grandparents when we are away.

We are located in Northgate, which is super close to the Brisbane airports (without the air traffic noise!), within a couple of minutes of the Gateway Motorway which will take you to the coasts in an hour, within 10 mins walk of the train station, and a short drive to several shopping centres, cinemas, eateries, everything is close! Nundah village is either one train stop, a short cycle or 15 minutes walk away and has a supermarket, pub, restaurants and shops. There is a park with playground at the end of our street and cycle tracks close by that will take you pretty much anywhere in Brisbane. Nudgee Beach is a 7 minute drive, and when the tide is out, you can walk for miles! It's a lovely suburban neighbourhood, safe and friendly in a great location.
