The large 2nd Bedroom has a hidden Kitchenette behind full length Mirror sliding doors which was my teenage sons "get away from Mum" room. Ideal for a Teenager or these 2 Bedrooms make a nice area for another couple when they need to do their own thing. All bedrooms have Flat Screen TV's. 2nd Bedroom also has a fridge.
The open Living Area has large formal and casual spaces with garden, waterfront and skyline views. Kitchen also overlooks these views.
There is also an exterior shower, toilet and basin area to use without coming into the house when needed..

Because of the distance that Australia is from most parts of the world, coming to Australia takes time and effort so I am very flexible..
Some info about The Gold Coast for you.
The Gold Coast is a Sub Tropical area. We have Sunshine mostly all year. It does rain in the summer, though still warm weather. Summers are sometimes very hot, though usually just perfect, winters not too cold.
The house has reverse cycle air conditioning that for myself I use only sometimes for heating in the winter evenings.
My house is a comfortable home with good sized rooms, very open, well ventilated, and gets a sea breeze. I also have fans everywhere..
Floods in Queensland are possibly on the news. I am not in a flood zone area.
The Hiring of Cars, Boats, Caravans is easily available all year round..

My home is now available from September 2012..
September urgently looking to exchange for Las Vegas New York City, or Californian beach areas Santa Monica, San Diego,or San Francisco.
Christmas/New Year looking to exchange in Australia, or close to home where I would enjoy the holiday season.
Beach areas or City Zones with views attract me.
All offers to exchange or rent considered though.

|Partido de San Isidro,Argentina||2012-01||2014-12|
I would like to exchange to enhance my knowledge of people and places. I want also like to improve on my knowledge of Argentina and the rest of South America, as well as of course my nearly forgotten Italian needs relearning..
I have lived in Italy, Argentina, Singapore, and when single I worked in the U.S. for a French cosmetic company, mostly in New York. My son lives in L.A. so I am very happy to visit NY again and L.A anytime. My preferred spots in America are Venice Beach, Marina del Rey, and Santa Monica. Then Las Vegas and San Diego.
I am happy to always return to these areas for a minimum of 2 weeks. Other places because of the distance for both sides I think that other than Asia more time is needed because of the travel involved.
I am actually looking forward also to seeing places I haven't and having the opportunity to return to those I love with putting my home up for Exchange or Rental by negotiation..
Other than enjoying my wonderful sunny life here on the Gold Coast I need my exchange family to take over the watering of my plants when I am not here. That is really important to me.
I have a wonderful house cleaner that comes fortnightly. I would need for whoever exchanges to accept her fortnightly. As she lives only a few doors away I am sure if needed she would be happy to assist with more help if wanted.
As yet I have not been able to find someone to post photos of my house on this site as I don't know how to do it. I will of course provide these upon request if by then I do not have them posted.
I look forward to some offers.
