Profile: Family-of-4 - Completed House Swaps: 4
My name is Matt (39) and my wife is Marisa (34); we have a 14 yr old son called Morgan and a 2yr old son names Elijah. We are a very happy family living in our dream house on the Sunshine Coast. We love the water and the sunshine and also love to experience different places and people. We have all traveled extensively round the world and now settling into our new life on the coast.
Marisa and I love any outdoor activities, especially surfing, camping and being amongst nature or having a quiet drink and watching the sun go down. Morgan is way ahead of his years and loves to read , play chess and computers. He is very funny and loves to tell a good joke. Little Elijah is just perfect and we are looking forward to introducing him to the rest of Australia.
Marisa and I run our own businesses so we are pretty flexible with time frames but need to work around Morgan's schooling.
Family time is our most precious time and we hope to have plenty of fun family moments while experiencing some new sights together. We have a beautiful home set in the rain forest that we fell in love with at first sight and are looking forward to sharing it with others.
We hope to hear from you soon :)
