Neighbourhood

The home is in a suburban neighborhood (12km north of the Perth city centre - Suburb Carine) with mixed ages, good shopping and recreation facilities as well as access to major transport routes. Lovely street with friendly neighbours but not intrusive (they will leave you alone if that is what you wish, but talk to you if you would like that too). Short walk (50m) to small park which leads via overpasss to large 124 acre open space for walking, riding and sports. 5 minute walk to bus, around 2km to train, 5 kms via bike path to beach (5 minutes in the car).

Nearest airport

Perth International airport is an approximately half hour drive away.

Getting around

There are bus and train services nearby but really we think a car is necessary. We are open to car exchange.

We are a couple in our 50s - Darrell is a recently retired Commercial Manager and I worked previously in Bookkeeping/Accounting, but now work only as a casual house 'Mother' in a Boarding School, (although I am also qualified as a Funeral Celebrant) and do a lot of community work - in particular with Rotary Youth Exchange and a local Farmers Market. We have two adult daughters and many 'exchange' sons and daughters who we have hosted over the years. We love to travel and when we do, like to see the country from a local's eyes. We have been members of Homelink Home Exchange for around 10 years and have completed several successful Exchanges. We love Australian Rules Football (Go Eagles) and as Darrell is originally a Kiwi - he loves Rugby. We also like spending time with family and friends and enjoy great food. Darrell loves his red wine and although I am mostly a non-drinker - I do have a special passion for cocktails! We also enjoy live theatre and the occasional rock concert and Darrell is an avid golfer. We have traveled throughout Australia, as well as to South Africa, Europe and Asia, New Zealand and the United States. In my work with Rotary Youth Exchange, I also dealt a lot with students from South America (mostly Brazil and Argentina) and so one day I will also get there. Unfortunately we speak only English - although we are very proud that our daughters between them speak German, French, Spanish, Italian and Danish. We have loved hosting students from all over the world and think there is nothing so special as being invited into the home or life of a local when we travel. We are seeking usually long term exchanges during reasonable weather. We are not really fussy where and are open to suggestions (sell it to us) - but we usually like to steer clear of big cities and exchange to somewhere quieter, that we can use as a base for exploring wider. Perth weather is pretty much always good - during spring, days are warm and sunny with average temperatures ranging from 11.7 - 23°C (53 - 73.4°F) and even in winter, days with temperature in the 20s are not rare. Whilst it can get hot in the summer, the nights are usually blessed with a cooling breeze and the entire state is geared for the heat, so the glorious relaxed summer vibe makes for a fabulous holiday. For locals, this is usually their favourite time of year. We'd don't need much - a clean, comfortable, non smoking home that has room for the two of us - and possibly a vistor or two for a short time - and one that can be left for small periods if we decide to travel wider. If you think you can manage and would like to spend a couple of months in Perth, Western Austalia - or even perhaps a shorter period - please contact us. We are also forward planning for 2023, when we would like to spend 6 weeks - 2 months (or longer) in France, to attend the Rugby World Cup.
