Marie and her partner from London joined Love Home Swap in January this year. They listed their home and have already agreed a number of holidays including a Points trip to the Hamptons in New York. She shared some comments from her fabulous experience with us.
"On arrival his housekeeper was so sweet and made us feel very welcome. The house was such a special space for my family to create the best holiday memories. The energy of the house was warm and welcoming from the moment you entered. Sunlight drenched the delightful spacious interiors and lovely bedrooms. We all grinned from ear to ear, so happy to be there. It's all newly decorated and everything is clean. This ia a 'WOW!' house. It was amazing that we had a weekend there.
"The house is full of technology and most things are controlled by an iPad. An excellent idea for my next renovation! The showers are fantastic on this property and were definately a conversation point amongst us all during our stay! The games room downstairs, BBQ and fire pit gave us a great night at the house enjoying each other's company. It's a large house that can accommodate an even bigger group than the seven of us. The layout makes it easy for everyone to be doing their own thing whether helping to prepare a meal, watching TV or swimming in the pool. It felt like we were all involved but had space all at the same time.
"There was a very impressive folder (it puts mine to shame) with itemized notes and photos detailing anything that may come up technically in the house. It also had lots or recommendations of things to do in the surrounding area.
"We took Joseph's suggestion and visited Cooper's Beach. It was as lovely as I had imagined it to be. Seeing the mansions on route where a highlight for me! The location was wonderful as it's not as far away from Manhattan as some of the other Hamptons locations I have been to in the past. So less traffic was a huge plus. Southampton is a short car journey away and it's such a nice town. Lovely restaurants and shops. Bring your credit card! It is about 30 minutes from Sag Harbour which is also a nice Town. We used Uber taxis to travel at night and they were at the house within 10 minutes.
"We really didn't want to leave. It was bliss!"
Marie organised her trip using our Points system, which gives members even more opportunities to travel through the club. Feel free to drop us a line if you'd like to know more about how Points can work for you.
