We would love a 2 to 3 month stay in The Netherlands in Amsterdam , The Hague or Paris so that we can easily access places in Europe we would love to visit but be able to have a home base to return to. We are open to offers in other European cities. We would be reliant on public transport as we do not wish to drive in Europe.
Our Home overlooking the Lane Cove River in Sydney
Our Home is situated on the Lane Cove River with a north easterly aspect, it is a very sunny house. We have a boatshed with a dinghi and barbecue facilities. Sydney with all its tourist attractions is a 5 minute bus and 20 minute ferry ride away. We also have Lane Cove National Park which is about 10 kilometres to the north. Manly Beach, a surfing beach can be visited by catching 2 ferries or 2 buses. There are a lot of things to see and do and of course all parts of Australia can be accessed by flights out of Sydney.
There are 3 bedrooms, 2 with double beds and one with two very small singles.
The bathrooms were both renovated in the last 5 years and the kitchen is now renovated although the photo is still the old one. Wifi comes into the house and of course there is TV. We have only free to air programmes but these are quite good in Australia.........well not great around Christmas.
Our car, which is available to you is a 2007 Toyota Corolla Ascent in the station wagon style. A very reliable car in good condition.
Our air conditioning is reverse cycle so that you need not be cold or too hot. Meals can be eaten on the front verandah overlooking the river in the warm weather, it is very pleasant.

Dichtstbijzijnde luchthaven: Sydney - 20 klms.
A quiet garden suburb about 12 klms. from Sydney city. Walking the local streets is always very pleasant and people generally speaking are quite friendly.
There are about 8 cafes and restaurants within walking distance, 3 almost at the top of our street. There is a local pub and small shopping centre including a butcher, a fish shop and a small supermarket, 5 coffee shops and 3 restaurants about twenty minutes walking to the village.
There are three churches all within walking distance, a Catholic and an Anglican. The third church seems to be used mainly for weddings.
The ferry is our greatest pleasure as it makes going into the city for the opera house, movies and shopping so easy and it connects you to public transport to all areas. We do love it here and one of our neighbours were the neighbours of David's parents who built this beautiful home in the sixties, we moved in in 2002. Our two boys spent a lot of time down here on the river with their grandparents wind surfing, water skiing and sailing. They are now both over 40 and have a great love for the water.

Over onze familie
David and I are both retired for many years now. I was a registered nurse and David a mechanical engineer. We have two sons, both in their 40,s. Our younger son lives in Darwin with his family and our older son lives in Sydney. We travel of course without the boys.
We have a townhouse in the Northern Territory very close to the beach in Darwin. A very simply furnished home which is open for our intervac visitors if they are interested in visiting the tropics. Darwin is 41/2 thousand Klms from Sydney by road. The train can be taken from Adelaide to Darwin straight up through the centre or of course there are always aeroplanes.
