John and I (Elizabeth) are in our 50's and we are now starting to become freed up from our parental role.
Our 2 children / young adults are now independent and have started their own lives.
This is an exiting time for us as we are hoping to embrace a new lifestyle of choice and freedom.
The Manly Apartment is our second home however sometimes it is rented out. Please check with us in the first instance for availability.
We prefer Non Simultaneous exchanges, as we may not be able to get away at the same time as you have indicated especially if your request is at short notice.
We are booked up already for 2012. Sorry.
However we are interested in offers for 2013.
Please note: We are really interested in visiting City Locations or large Towns with close access to Public Transport and Sight Seeing attractions.
Isolated Country locations and Mountain Ranges do not appeal to us. Sorry.
