Townhouse close to Perth city home swap
Two-storey townhouse close to Perth, a smaller modern city on the west coast of Australia.
Upstairs: Two double bedrooms, main has a king size bed and ensuite shower room, second bedroom has a queen size bed. Main bathroom. Third bedroom used as a study, broadband internet, wifi. TVs in two bedrooms.
Downstairs: Open plan living/dining/kitchen area, with small TV room (cable), extra WC off the laundry. Lovely rear courtyard, great for barbecues. Our home is not really suitable for children.
Car exchange preferred, we have a 2004 SAAB and would hope to swap with a similar size 4-door car. Close to public transport.
About the location
Located in a newer subdivision in one of Perth's oldest inner-city suburbs, a short walk to popular pub/cafe strip with bakery, supermarket, book shop, pharmacy, boutiques, interesting gift shops, 3 pubs, restaurants, and many cafes.
The house is great for lock-up-and-leave, and conveniently situated as we can walk to the city, Museum and Art Gallery in around 20 mins, or use two different bus routes (a 10-minute bus ride). Access to the freeway (north and south) is 5 minutes away. We can also walk to the nearby East Perth train station to get to Subiaco, historic Fremantle and Mandurah. A 15-minute walk also gets us to the river at East Perth and Claisebrook Cove.
We are Jill and Jim, in our mid 60s, and retired. We have had successful swaps in Hawaii, Ireland, Germany, Spain; and in England: North Yorkshire, Somerset, Berkshire, Essex and Oxfordshire. Our swappers have all loved Perth. We sometimes travel with another couple and would like to include them this time.
Our interests include (but are not limited to) Europe, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, USA. Would also consider swaps within Australia.
We are looking for simultaneous swaps with other seniors. No pets. Non-smokers. We are always happy to discuss swaps further down the track as we enjoy getting to know our swappers by email and Skype.
