At the moment, due to Covid-19, holiday travel is not permitted to or from Australia. But in the hope this situation changes the northern hemisphere winter (late December to end of January) would be our travel period. We also have a one bedroom self contained apartment attached to our house. This could be available for non-synchronous exchanges. It will have a Queen sized bed for two adults, plus children could be accommodated on inflatable camping mats if desired.

Family home offer the best of many worlds - beaches, forest and Sydney

Our house is regular family house in a peaceful, forest setting. It is close to beautiful beaches, a top hang gliding spot and Otford itself borders onto Sydney's Royal National Park (with sensational coastal views and walking tracks). It is also one hour by car or train to Sydney's most iconic landmarks (the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House) or Wollongong – so Otford offers the best of many worlds. It is a two level family home with one bathroom, four bedrooms and a lovely back patio overlooking the Hacking River. We have a miniature poodle who we'd like to think you could look after whilst we are away (but have options if you'd like to go away for a few days). There is a small apartment attached to our house that could be available for non-synchronous exchanges - would suit a couple but could accommodate a family of 2+2 if kids were OK to sleep on camping mats.

For most of 2021 it will be likely overseas holiday travel to and from Australia will not be possible due to Covid-19. But potentially interested in Dec 2021 onwards if the situation improves.
