Guy & Lyn have been Love Home Swap members since March 2016, and have so far been on 8 trips with us so far, and hosted 13 members at their beautiful vacation home in Tuscany, Italy. 

‘I first found out about Love Home Swap through an internet search. For me the main advantage of swapping is definitely the cost saving. I am British but I currently split my time between the UK, the USA, and Italy and only spend about 2 weeks out of every 3 months in the UK. I have a home in Savannah GA and Tuscany, but for various reasons I cannot currently get a mortgage to buy a home here, so I try to book as many swaps as I can whilst I’m in the UK. This means I get to travel the whole of the country and stay in beautiful houses and locations. This would be prohibitively expensive if I did it the traditional way.’

In April, the couple stayed at Steve’s beautiful thatched cottage in Horning (Norfolk), England for a week.

‘What a beautiful place to stay! The house itself is very pretty but the location on the edge of the river is stunning. We were lucky enough to have sunny weather in April and happily spent a few days sitting in the garden watching the boats float by, and watching swans build their nest on the opposite bank. Amazing.’

Back in June, Guy & Lyn also stayed at Marylou’s stunning barn conversion in Cumbria, England.

‘The standout memory from my trip to Armathwaite (Cumbria) was the view from the house and the amazing scenery of the Lake District. The local village had two very nice pubs serving good goof, and Armathwaite is a good base for the Lake District or even Scotland, as we drove to Dumfries for dinner in an hour.’

The couple also have an upcoming swap to London in August, as well as Bristol in September. Guy has also managed to swap a week in a beachside home in Hawaii for his fiancées parent’s 50th Wedding anniversary.
