We are an outgoing, lovely 40yo couple, Debbie and Heinrich, with two well behaved little boys one aged 2 years and one aged 5 mths. (Our sons have a friendly live-in Swedish nanny (Annie) who sometimes travels with us). A total of 3 adults and 2 children - we only require 2 bedrooms as our boys sleep on their own little mattresses in our room or their nanny's room when we travel). Both my hubby and I work in I.T. (me from home) and we enjoy getting away from it all and seeing new places. We are all very healthy (non-smokers) and we will respect your home as we do our own. We love travelling, locally and internationally. As we have small children our home is therefore well equipped to handle small children. Our home is very clean, spacious and bright. We don't have any pets, but we are happy to care for yours (our boys adore cats and dogs!!). Since we live so close to so many of Melbourne's fine beaches in Bayside we enjoy visiting them as often as possible, either with friends to local beach cafes or walking/riding on the boardwalks that literally touch the waters edge around the bay from Sandringham to Port Melbourne.
Type: House, Bathrooms: 2, Bedrooms: 4, Sleeps: 8
About our House: Large, modern, brand new spacious 4 BR home, positioned in a fantastic central location in Bayside Melbourne.

A BBQ, bar and outdoor lounge overlook a small neat garden. The ground floor living areas are tiled throughout, which gives the house a clean, fresh appearance (and is easy to look after).
