Our family home is an immersion in retro, vintage and the unusual, created from recycled materials and quirky ideas. 5 min drive from stunningly beautiful, isolated, pristine surf beaches with amazing wildlife and world heritage littoral rainforest.
Our backyard is available for you to pitch your tent or park your van under the mango tree and have use of the back deck and use of the outdoor bathroom, or we have our loft room available on our other listing, it's all possible, let us know what suits you. You can stay 1, 2 or 3 nights, 3 nights is our maximum stay.
Our home is an ongoing work in progress. We've been remodelling and styling it for 16 years now. We're passionate about living a sustainable lifestyle and reducing consumerism. We try as much as possible not to buy new items and to reuse and recycle found treasures, our home reflects this ideal. We have solar hot water and solar electricity that feeds back into the grid so if you want to spend some time where you'll leave less of an environmental footprint and escape, relax and experience a slow lifestyle for a while or take some time to reflect and encourage your creativity then you'll probably love it.

As this is our family home we ask guests to be respectful of our family life. We enjoy our communal spaces and the interactions that occur in these spaces and value the different dynamics experienced through sharing these spaces with guests. Limited access to the kitchen is available depending on family activities, we have a BBQ on the back deck which will be available. The outside bathroom is inclusive of shower, toilet, sink and hot and cold water. There is access to electricity from the back deck using an extension lead. We ask guests be mindful of water and electricity usage. Family bedrooms are not accessible to guests. As a family we enjoy an outdoor life and when at home enjoy playing and listening to music. We have guitars available for guests to share.
Interaction with guests
Our family of 2 adults and 2 kids will more than likely be at home most of the time. We are a family of travellers and enjoy home exchanging as well so we are always happy to meet new people and enjoy sharing stories, our home, lifestyle and stunning environment.
Alan speaks French fluently and the rest of us are learning so we particularly welcome the opportunity to speak French with any guests.
Other things to note
We have enjoyed 9 home exchanges as a family in France, Spain, Sydney and Melbourne. We have previously lived in the UK and France.
Mutual respect, thoughtfulness and environmental awareness, sorry definitely non smoking.
