About our home

We are a family of four and an "international crowd". Pam is Dutch/Canadian, our kids Constantin and Oscar also got these nationalities, even though born in Austria. I am Austrian and since 2001 we have our homebase in Innsbruck-Igls, where I come from. We all love to travel and we had the luxery of touring New Zealand with a motor home in 2010, 2012 we explored Sweden and in between we did two home exchanges (via InterVac.com) in the Netherlands in order to expose our kids to the Dutch language. In 2014 and 2015 we did another two home exhange in Ottawa, Canada (via homeexchange.com), to visit the mother of Pam who is based there in an old age home. Now the time has come where I want to take my family to my beloved South Africa where I spent a lot of time some twenty years ago working for a South African Company, living both in Paarl and Hout Bay. We love the outdoors but also visiting cities and any major attractions, and also try to fit any kind of sports activities in as much as possible. I personally do not have much in common with a lazy beach holiday, and also anything above 30 degrees is not my climate. Pam is more heat resistant due to her genetic roots that go back to Indonesia. The kids are easy going and follow us whereever - at least until now and for another couple years to come.
We believe that our home is a perfect base for any family, that wants to experience a beautiful summer time in the Austrian alps, doing all the activities that this awesome country side has to offer. Obviously it is more an active vacation and not focused on visiting museums and operas, but a trip to Vienna, Munich or close by Italy is quick and easy by train or by car. And if you simply want to hang out at the beach and enjoy a sunbath all day long, dont come here! We are aware of the fact that Austria is more popular in wintertime but as we enjoy all our winter sports ourselves, we are not interested in any exchange during our winter and over the Christmas time, not to mention that it is not possible with the kids being in school.
We would be pleased if you find our offer and location attractive and we are looking forward to receiving your proposal for an exchange!
