Home in Boronia, very near Melbourne home swap

3.5-year old house with remote gated entry, house alarm, dishwasher, (clothes) washing machine. in a quiet area near to foot of the Dandenongs. Boronia is 20 miles from Melbourne city with both bus and train stations nearby. While a car is not needed for most people, my car is included in my exchange and I would appreciate the use of a car wherever I go.

Pay t.v., wireless internet and printer are available. I will be taking my laptop with me, so whoever comes to stay would need to bring their own laptop/ipad.

I have had two home exchanges to April 2015; one in Scotland for 5 months where I also stayed with the folk for 2.5 weeks while they were en route from my house to their next exchange in the US. These people found my house to be located in a very handy position to bus, trains and shops and really enjoyed their stay.

AS I AM RETURNING TO THE SAME HOUSE IN SCOTLAND AT THE END OF OCTOBER THIS YEAR (2015) FOR SIX MONTHS, I AM CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR A HOME SWAP FROM END OF APRIL 2016 FOR HOWEVER LONG I CAN GET, TO ENABLE ME TO STAY ON IN THE UK FOR AS LONG AS I CAN, SO I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO HEAR FROM ANYONE INTERESTED IN GOING TO MELBOURNE AROUND MAY 2016.

At the exchange in England in 2014, for two of my three-week stay I was with the lady of the house before she went on holiday in the third week, and we have become firm friends. For those requiring it, a reference from the lady I lodged with in Edinburgh is included in my request email.

About the location

While I have ticked golfing and tennis as activities in my area, I personally don't participate in either. I believe one can play golf at the, or a, nearby golf course/s without being a member but I'm not sure about the tennis club; it is only 'just around the corner' from my house.

There are a variety of restaurants in Boronia but also in the surrounding areas. Boronia also has a Cinema, gyms and swimming pool.
