Lovely 4 Bed home swap in Doonan, Australia
Our house is in Queensland's Sunshine Coast hinterland, in a tranquil rural setting, but only 15 minutes from Noosa and several surf beaches.
The house is large and open plan, with the master bedroom, ensuite and walk-in robe on the mezzanine level. The kitchen has a large breakfast bar, six burner gas hob and walk-in pantry. There are three other bedrooms and a study, with broadband internet access, and all ground floor rooms have direct access to the garden.
There is a courtyard off the kitchen with deck, barbeque, herb garden and fish pond. The large garden is mainly rainforest, with two dams, a lawn area, fruit trees and vegetable gardens. A gardener comes for a couple of hours every two weeks.
Noosa is one of the premiere tourist areas in Australia with a protected beach, excellent restaurants and national park. There are also several patrolled surf beaches close by. There are interesting country towns in the immediate area (Eumundi, Montville) as well as wineries, scenic drives (Glass House Mountains) and National Parks.
Brisbane is a 2 hour drive south (1 1/2 hours to the airport) and Hervey Bay (which provides access to Fraser Island and the southern tip of the Barrier Reef) is 2 and a half hours north. The Sunshine Coast airport is 25 minutes from Doonan, providing low cost flights to Sydney and Melbourne. Our Subaru Forrester (AWD) comes with the house - subject to the usual insurance requirements.
Activities include all watersports (two surf skis and a boogie board come with the house), golf, bush walking and tennis. Visit www.tourisnmnoosa.com.au for more information on the area.
