“Terry and Christine could not have made us more welcome, and in turn we look forward to welcoming them to England next year. We were grandparents travelling with teenage grandchildren so the location was perfect, being not too near the lively Byron Bay to disturb the peace and quiet and idyllic views, yet just a short bike ride or car drive away. We wanted for nothing and all of us give 5 stars in every way. Thank you so much Terry and Christine ! ”

“Our house swap experience could not have been better. We did a non-simultaneous swap with Cilla. She and her two sons stayed at our lake house in Vermont in August, and we traveled to Sweden in late September. It was a treat getting to know them. We enjoyed introducing them to some of our favorite places Vermont, including a motorboat tour of our Lake Iroquois just after they arrived, their adventuresome day hiking Camels Hump, and taking them on an evening sail on Lake Champlain with Cilla’s two boys at the helm most of the time. I have to say that hosting Cilla and her sons was as enjoyable an experience as our visit to Sweden. Cilla’s home is amazing. Beautifully decorated and perfectly situated in a small hamlet on the Baltic Sea, and close to the charming village of Simrishamn. On our first morning, Karen and I made coffee and walked to the shore and then 300 yards to the hamlet’s miniature harbor. We sat on the breakwater in the sun, watched the two resident swans coast between the boats, looked out of the sea and planned our day. In the days that followed, we visited castles, ate amazing food, saw some of the most beautiful churches, and toured the surrounding countryside by bike. We spent two days in Copenhagen, visited the Viking ship museum in Roskilde, Denmark, and loved spending time in the City of Lund (where we were lucky enough to share a glass of wine with Cilla). No question – this trip was a 10. Thank you Cilla.”
“So, I must first say that Ade was most accommodating to me and my friends. We wanted to stay downtown instead of the suburbs. And, his penthouse was booked upon our arrival and we really wanted to stay there, however, he allowed us to stay one night in his other place, and move to the penthouse the next day. Ironically, his guest in the penthouse was communicating with my friend on a S.A. FB page prior to arrival. Who knew? LOL. Anyway, Ade through the entire process was very communicative via email. Upon arrival, he has his manager, Dylene handle things locally. So, first, the elevators and hallways were being worked on when we arrived, but the elevators worked...that wasn't an issue for us. Both places, met our expectations and they were lovely spaces ---both of them. We were not disappointed in the least. You would never guess what awaits inside from the exterior of the building. It reminds me sort of like NYC....a hidden gem! And, if you're in the Penthouse, you have to use the rooftop! AMAZING! Thanks, Ade for sharing your space --allowing me and my girlfriends to experience South Africa in style...you too, Dylene!!! You won't be disappointed if you stay here.”
“Irene's place is great! She was very helpful and we loved Altafulla. The beach is great, wonderful for families. The town was also very nice. We would definitely go back. Thanks Irene!”
