Profile: Family-of-3 - Completed House Swaps: 1
We are family of 3. 2 adults and 9 year old daughter. Have friends and relatives in Sydney and Newcastle that we love to visit. Also very fond of Murray River areas and Queensland.
Mostly free during VIC school holidays and Christmas/January. We're a professional couple with a (mostly) neat daughter. We love good cooking and good company - we know it's a big step to house-swap, but our sole experience so far, has been great. We are happy to look after pets, even though we don't have any of our own. We promise to care for your home and leave it neat and tidy.
