Profile: Single-Retired - Completed House Swaps: 2
My unit is in beautiful Ascot, Brisbane. I am a single, retired woman - love my home and neighbourhood. I work occasionally as a pet nanny in my local area with a small number of regular clients. Needless to say, I love animals and am also a gardener, looking after the gardens of our small block of four units.
I'm tidy and (usually) well organised. I aim for a simple but comfortable life and am attracted to ecological living, without being too intense about it! Let's see.......I love cooking, eating, classical, blues and ethnic music, and seeing my friends and family (human and animal).
Brisbane is my home town, but I have travelled extensively and lived overseas for many years. The occasional trip away, not too far, is what I now enjoy. Would love to see more of Australia, and hope you can help me. I've completed two swaps so far, to Tasmania and Perth, and was very happy with each one.
Type: Apartment / Unit, Bathrooms: 1, Bedrooms: 2, Sleeps: 3
About our Apartment / Unit: My garden unit is in Ascot, a stylish inner suburb, 5k's from Brisbane's city centre. This small block of 4 units is on a hill in a cul-de-sac and has a lovely garden and carports. The bus is very close and you can be in the city in about 10 minutes. Train station also near by. Sunshine and Gold Coasts are easy to reach, being one hour on the freeway north or south, and the airport is less than 10 minutes' drive away - depending on traffic.
I am close to shops, supermarkets, farmers markets, many cafes and restaurants as well as a short walk to a lovely park, three racing tracks, football, cricket and bowling clubs. The Brisbane River is just a few minute's drive, and you can catch the RiverCity Cats (ie ferries) at any time.
I prefer visitors who are responsible and caring. My cat would like your company and he is easy to look after - there is a cat-flap directly to the garden. Some friendly neighbours will also help with the cat if you ask them. My small garden would appreciate the occasional watering if it is dry. I have a rain-water tank and enjoy as "green" a lifestyle as I can manage. You are welcome to eat my vegges, herbs and occasionally, fruit.
All the attractions of a large city are near by. One hour's drive north or south for Sunshine and Gold Coasts and the motorway is only a few minute's drive away. Airport and city centre are less than10 minute's drive. Also close to bus, train and city cat river ferry.
