“Coming to stay at Sarah's place was a quite a shock as I had just been staying with somebody else (through the same site) where I had had a great experience! The house was a complete mess and very dirty. I don't want to bore you with too many details but there were dirty dishes all over kitchen, the dining table was covered in breadcrumbs & endless clutter, the floors were dirty, bathrooms unwashed (one even had dirty laundry soaking in the sink). There was a note waiting for me from Sarah telling me that the house was in the middle of some renovation and the next days I would need to open the door 8am to the workers to let them in. Needless to say I had to wake up before 8am most mornings and listen to the noise & running up & down the stairs during the day. Other than that the only thing Sarah bothered about was instructions about how to feed her cats. She didn't leave any information about the coffee maker (rather a complicated one) or wi-fi password or anything. First day she answered my sms's but I couldn't find her afterwards. The worst thing was that I sent her a letter about all this but she didn't think there was anything wrong with how she left the place since she had given it to me for less points than usually (I was just one person). The worst holiday ever!!!! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- THE HOST RESPONSE: This review is almost entirely a fantasy. And it's interesting that it comes 5 months after she stayed here. I left very detailed instructions about everything except the wifi password which I sent her by text as soon as she pointed that out. I included instructions on how to feed the cats, which she had said she wanted to do. My neighbour happily feeds them if swappers don’t want to bother with that. I answered all 15 of her texts immediately despite being in France with poor reception. None were complaints which if things were so bad you would think they would be. I told her by text where the coffee machine instructions were but she seemed unable to work it despite my offering that she photographed the flashing light so I could decipher it. It's a bean to cup machine but it's not THAT complicated, plus I have a cafetière and a stove top right next to it. My cleaner had come 2 days before her arrival for 8 hours and came again while she was there for another 8 hours at my expense. So the only part that's true is that the builders came back for a few hours on ONE day to fix the last few snags. This was unexpected to me and I was apologetic. However after her stay she asked me to refund half the points as compensation. I would have done had I not already given her a 50% reduction as she said she couldn't afford it otherwise. I wish I hadn't kindly agreed now - it's a 4 bedroom house in central London and just as much work to lend to one person as 8.”
“I stayed in Aurelie's home with my sister and two daughters in August and can honestly say it was absolutely perfect. The apartment had everything we needed and the location couldn't be nicer. It's right next to the Luxembourg Gardens so we were able to have picnic dinners in the park several nights during our stay. The apartment is well connected to the rest of the city by bus but you can also walk to Notre Dame in less than half an hour. Aurelie was a gracious host and was quick to respond to emails and text messages. We wouldn't hesitate to stay with her again.”
“We had a lovely long weekend break staying in Eveline and Rubens home in Amsterdam. The apartment is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the city centre with plenty of transport links nearby. The area is quite and residential but has some great places to eat and drink nearby. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable with everything we needed for our trip. We especially loved having our morning coffee in the back garden. Amsterdam is a beautiful city and we spent most of our time walking the canals and parks but it was great to come back to a cosy home at the end of the day. Thanks for a great swap!. Peter & Rika”
