Home in Boronia, 20 miles to Melbourne via train - Victoria

6-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 necessarily needed for most people, my car is included in an exchange and I would appreciate the use of a car wherever I go.

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

In early October 2014, I stayed with a lovely lady in Nottingham for two weeks before she went on holiday for the third week, when I stayed in her house on my own, and we have become good friends.

Since late October 2014, I have had an ongoing exchange in Scotland for 5-6 months, where I stay from end of October to mid-end April each year. These lovely people find my house in Boronia to be located in a very handy position to bus, trains and shops and really enjoy their stay.

As I will again be returning to Scotland at the end of October this year (2018) for a further 5-6 months, I would like to hear from anyone interested in going to Melbourne around early April 2019, as that is when my house will again be available. I would appreciate a further exchange anywhere in the UK after early-mid-April for any time up to 4-5 months.


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 nearby golf course/s without being a member but I`m not sure about the tennis club, which 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.
