  • Description


    Hi there and welcome to Brisbane. We love traveling and welcome people from different backgrounds to experience sunny Brisbane. We are a married couple with 3 kids aged 11-14 and a dog. We are quite a busy active family and like to follow a healthy lifestyle and are always doing something. I would especially love someone who can speak Mandarin to help our two girls or someone who can do Latin dancing to help me practice. Anyone who is good with painting is also a good thing 😀

    We live in a lovely area called Brighton which is 15 mins walk to the sea. There are lots of cafes and the foreshore is a lovely recreation area where lots of people come to visit. We welcome people from different nationalities I myself have relatives living all over the globe. We are originally from the UK but moved to Oz in 2001. We look forward to meeting you.

    We have a multi level home. Living areas are upstairs our bedroom and kids lego/music room is downstairs and the other bedrooms and living room are on the front level. We have a pool in back garden. You would have your own room with a queen bed but would share a bathroom and the living areas.

    You can walk to the foreshore, library & local shops or there is a bus/train to the city, shopping centres etc. On the foreshore there is a pool, gym, numerous cafes, fish and chips and ice cream shops, surf connect who run water sports as well as a couple of parks.
    We have a spare bicycle. Just about everywhere I go is in cycling distance so this is my main mode of transportation.
