“Leonardo and Maria Pia were wonderful, welcoming hosts. They showed us around the area when we arrived on a Sunday afternoon in February, which was really helpful. The apartment felt cosy and homely, ideal after a long day walking around the sights of Rome! Although a tram and train ride from the centre, we enjoyed being somewhere quieter and imagine that on a hot summer's day sitting outside on the little patio would be very pleasant. We ventured to the coast by train a couple of times which was very easy, the station being 3 minutes from the apartment. Thank you Maria Pia and Leonardo for your hospitality. We loved it all. Ciao! ”

“We just returned from Helga's beautiful condo in the Punta Leona resort. The lay-out of the unit was perfect for our group (2 couples..could accommodate 3 couples). Excellent beds...extremely quiet! Great Wifi. We enjoyed morning coffee on the lanai and the short one flight of steps to the beautiful infinity pool. The property is very secure with 3 check points on the route in. The beach has to be the most gorgeous beach in all of Costa Rica, Playa Blanca. Perfect sand, beautiful calm water, interesting rocks along the outer extremes. We could not have picked a more relaxing place to spend our vacation. Really close to all the attractions and restaurants one could want. I highly recommend you swap with Helga.

“This was my first home swap and I couldn't be happier. After years of travelling - happily staying at backpackers, relatives', dusty Airbnb's, and hosting couch surfers - I had an expectation that a free flat in Tokyo would be rather tiny, perhaps cluttered, and basic. Instead, our family of 6 were delighted to fine a designer, luxury, double size apartment in a gorgeous neighbourhood, overlooking a leafy park. No comfort was spared: air conditioning, European appliances, spookily clever toilet seats, fluffy quilts and towels, etc etc. Little touches such boxes of free toiletries and the loan of an iPad were the icing on the cake. The apartment was spotless and kept so by Celia's housekeeper in between guests. We did wash and clean before we left, out of courtesy, but knew the final touches would be done for us. Celia was an enthusiastic and eternally positive host and guest. She and Satoshi fitted into my home like locals and celebrated living in this crazy, noisy, artistic neighbourhood. And they offered to mind my dog for the full three weeks so he could stay in his home and get lots of love and attention. In fact I think he was a little disappointed when they left ... Our trip to Japan was a dream, in great part due to our wonderful home swap. ”
“Thanks to Christina we had the chance to stay in a 2 bedroom suite at this beautiful resort. The suite is nice and confortable for up to 2 adults and 3 kids, and has a private terrace with direct access to the pool. The resort has direct access to a beautiful long, white, sandy beach where after a short walk you can reach several restaurants and massage spots. The resort itself features different pretty good restaurants for different budgets. Breakfast and evening drinks are offered every day. A kid's club provides entertainment and daycare for children should you wish to have a moment to relax... what else to say, we had a great family time! Communication with Christina was excellent and she gave us plenty of tips to get the most out of this holiday. Thank you Christina!”
