Sydney - Beach House

Country: Australia Suburb/Town: Maroubra City: Sydney State/Province/Region: New South Wales Type of home: House Located: near the beach Bedrooms: 4 + Bathrooms: 2 Sleeps: 7+
Our home:

Our home is in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney, a short walk to 2 beaches and only 20 minutes to Sydney city. Our home is perfect for a family or couple, with 4 bedrooms plus study, large living area and huge covered deck overlooking the backyard.

The bedrooms include a King Bed, double fold out sofa bed, single bed and the option of a cot or single mattress for the 4th bedroom.  The downstairs study has a very comfortable inner spring sofa bed.

The kitchen is  brand new and great for entertaining with stone bench-tops and a large gas top cooker with electric oven. 

We have a medium sized backyard (with trampoline) and other kids toys should they be required.

Our home is very conveniently located, just an 8 minute walk to Maroubra Beach (great for surfing) or Malabar Bay. Bondi and Coogee Beaches are just 10 minutes away by car. Transport to the city and other beaches is easy with several buses close by.

We are looking for a house swap for our family in England around the time of the Olympics in 2012 (14 Jul - 30 Aug).  We are flexible regarding dates within this period, duration and location, our preferences are London, Cornwall, Brighton and anywhere that is beautiful in England. Ideally the home would accommodate 4-5 people.  We have 2 kids that will be aged 3 and 4 1/2 and 2-3 adults may need to be accommodated eg. 2-4 bedrooms.

We also have a home in the Blue Mountains in Blackheath, which is also an option for a swap.

My husband is working on the Olympics so we are open to suggestions about where to stay whilst he is busy!
