About our home: our home is made up of Simone (mumma), Patrick (18), Kayla(18), and Erin (20). We are a close family that loves the outdoors, adventures, animals and of course the beach! We have chickens and 2 dogs that are all part of the family! We have weekely meals with our neighbours and there are always friends over. It's a very lively place to live.
About us: Simone- mother working between jobs. Studying to become a driving instructor. Excellent cook! Loves her family and friends, beach walks with the dogs, music festivals and cooking.
Patrick- undergoing a plumbing apprenticeship. Loves rugby, hanging out with friends, outdoor activities and music.
Kayla- best laugh, advocado enthusiast, Patrick's girlfriend, loves her friends, good nights, all round happy.
Erin- quit her jobs to travel. Currently in Europe. Loves travel, languages, the ocean and good food!
Location: we live in a town called Coffs Harbour, in Australia! It is between Sydney and Brisbane on the east coast. It is the perfect spot if you like the ocean and all things nature really! We live a 20 min walk to the beach, but we go by car with the dogs almost daily you are welcome to join! We are a 5 min walk to the center where you will find great cafes, supermarket, skate park, botanic garden, shops and resturants. In Coffs you have the oppurtunity to visit local markets, national parks, marine reserves, water sports, creeks, beaches among many others!
