About Me


To continue our world travels and meet interesting people


We are world travellers, keen to meet like-minded people and to share cultural and life experiences. We lead an active retired lifestyle in a rural setting by the sea. We are keen to show our guests the secret natural environment of the Nature Coast.


Live life to the fullest and take things one day at a time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We particularly invite mature couples arriving with their own transport. Guests are encouraged to arrive with (at least) 1 bottle of wine and be able to cook or assist in cooking a meal from their national cuisine. In addition, we only accept international tourists who are prepared to share their travel stories. We are great entertainers who would be offended if the sole purpose of their visit is to find free accommodation in their journey between Sydney and Melbourne.
Please include the word " Max" in your request. This ensures that you are familiar with our profile.


We are keen to share our life experience and learn from other
travellers. We have surfed and hosted. Do not believe CS response rates, we respond to ALL hosting requests.


We lead a busy and actve life outside the paid workforce which includes many outdoor activities ~ swimming, cycling, walking and fishing. We particularly enjoy sharing experiences with fellow travellers.
