Wanted - House to Lease
We are a family on Scotland Island who need to find a property to lease by mid-April. We can however move before
then too. Currently we rent a 3 bedroom through a local real estate but we are happy to lease privately too with an owner if the opportunity arose. Our children go to the local schools and love the lifestyle that Scotland Island and the Bays offer. So far we’ve been fortunate enough to rent a waterfront and have just loved the easiness of parking your boat out the front and enjoying the yachts sailing by. It’s a beautiful life here away from the hectic mainland with gorgeous neighbours and a lovely community.

Please if anyone knows of something coming up either on the island or in the bays we’d love to check it out.
Contact Essie on 0418253870."

Leaving the Island Garden Sale

We finally SOLD our house last Monday

So we are having the first "Garden Sale" on Sunday 24th February, just prior to the 'clean up' and hoped that you could manage a line or two in the Newsletter.
We are sure that you know, we have had a wonderful stay of 21yrs. but age and health issues mean that we need change from the boat trips and Jetty, & 70 steps routine.
Completion is eight weeks away, so we will have lots of 'Farewell' meetings to look forward to !!
Audrey & Brian
