Hey! Lately I've been looking at houses to rent over on the Island...(gotta get away from this house/town/people). I haven't really been happy with most on offer, but last week I went and looked at a place in Smiths beach and it's perfect AND it has views of the ocean. Can lie in bed upstairs and look out at the blue. And the upstairs is immaculate and has a huge kitchen and huge deck (with ocean views ) . And it's a very short walk to the beach. Anyway, I just got a call from the agent and it looks like I've got it!!! It's not available till the end of January 07 but that's fine as it gives me time to get organised. It's a 12 mth lease...which suits me fine as I'll be either building or buying over the next 12 mths and hopefully by the time the lease is up, I'll have my own place to move into. Just wanted to share some good news wtih people. Smiths beach. WOOT! BTW, the driveway's gonna be fun with the bike! Steep.
