September 1 — October 1, 2014
We spent a wonderful time when we exchanged with Gloria & Tom. Their home is in the heart of Melbourne and yet there is an excellent and large supermarket which is easy walking distance. It is very comfortably and elegantly furnished. It is in such a friendly block and we met several of Gloria & Tom's friends. Parking is very straight forward. On the ground floor is a restaurant that has affordable meals of excellent quality and it was a very useful place for our old friends to come and see us. Our visitors came to see us by means of public transport which is dependable and efficient - bus stops are right near to the block. Tom and Gloria left us very helpful information about the general environment. Theatres are a short walk away. A particular pleasure was to be able to have an early morning swim in the pool at the top of the building and see the hot air balloons sail over our heads while we were swimming. The flat was perfect for us - just the right size, with everything neat and tidy and in good condition. They left our home in just as good a condition - clean and fresh. We can only recommend this exchange most warmly.
