My 21 year old son[Toby],and I[John] have been living in our present home for 9 years.I moved to Byron in 1975 from Sydney and have loved living here.I have lived in London and South Africa.
We both love surfing and to be able to walk out the back gate onto the beach and go for a surf is a special feeling.
I am a practicing dentist in Byron and Toby is studying Geology at university.We also love skiing and golf and are very keen to swap houses in January or february, any year with people who have properties in prime ski locations in the U.S.,Canada or Europe.
Depending on the timing, we may be accompanied by a couple of friends who are fellow professionals and your home will be in good hands.
