Our profile follows but I wanted to clarify our present thoughts.
Domestically, we would consider anywhere, but obviously it would depend on the border restrictions at the time and the state of covid in the area. At the moment, we can only consider exchanges in Queensland or parts of NSW. Reciprocal is fine, but we can also do non-reciprocal, plus we have guest points to use. We would be happy to hear any suggestions from people on the Gold Coast. Here is hoping that you are all well and that soon we may be able to go further afield!
Internationally, we will not be exchanging overseas for the foreseeable future as our government will not allow us to travel overseas.
Profile: We are retired and loving it. Kathy is originally from the USA, though has been in Australia for 43 years. She was an art specialist in a junior school. John is a 'true-blue' Aussie, originally from Melbourne. John was a purchasing manager of two international, eco-resorts for twenty years and now enjoys taking care of our property and has a part-time volunteer job. We have a son in Brisbane and a daughter and family in Leesburg VA (If they were to be able to come in June/July 2021, they would be with us)
In normal times, we will consider short and long term exchanges, While this is our primary home, we have put 'secondary' as we just take off in our little campervan or go visit our son in Brisbane.
We have been landlords, have rented for a number of years, have house-sat, and have left our home in the care of others. We appreciate the responsibility involved in caring for the property of others. We have thoroughly enjoyed our exchanges and look forward to more adventures.
