Our home:

We live in a single story house with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one ensuited).  There are three living areas throughout the house.  The pool room overlooks an in ground pool that is surrounded by lush tropical plants.  There are covered outdoor areas suitable for outdoor eating and relaxing.  There is a lock up two car garage.  At the back of the house is a 'toy shed' which is the storage for the kids bikes and toys.

Our house is about relaxation.  We are close enough to all the amenities, shopping, tourist attractions, but far enough away that you feel far from the madding crowds.

About us:

We are a family of 5 (Mark, Karla and three sons aged 11, 9 and 7).  Mark loves golf and had travelled extensively before we had a family.  The boys love to play sport and be outdoors.  Karla loves cooking and embracing other cultures.

 We have house swapped previously to New Zealand and enjoyed the experience. 

We love to be out and about and seeing as much as we can of the area we are visiting.  We are both teachers by trade and see it as important to take our children to see other parts of the world and cultures.
