Hilary and John have been Love Home Swap members since April 2013, and have been on 6 trips with us so far in some fantastic locations such as Malaysia, Singapore and New Zealand. The couple were attracted to the idea of swapping as it means they can ‘save a lot of money on accommodation costs’ which meant that they could travel more often now that they have retired. 

Brenda's Home in Yallingup

‘It is also lovely staying in a home and feeling part of a community rather than in a hotel where you are treated more as a tourist’

The couple’s most recent swap was to Yallingup in Western Australia where they stayed for a week at Brenda’s stunning home located just 10 minutes away from the beach.

‘Margaret River region is a wonderful part of Australia – fabulous coastline, beautiful scenery, wonderful wineries and great restaurants but one of the best parts is coming ‘home’ at night and relaxing!’

As keen golfers, the couple spent a lot of time on the green at some of the great golfing courses in the area. And they loved receiving ‘fabulous local knowledge from the home owner’ particularly great restaurants and places to shop.

‘We did find one of the best bakers ever thanks to our host, in a location that has no signage and only known to locals. The best ever sough dough bread and only available for sale for about and hour a day until its all sold out!’

Looking to the future, the couple are lining up another trip to Margaret River at the end of the year, but ‘the world is our oyster’ and they would both love to do a house swap in Sri Lanka, or more locally (close to Sydney) for a few short breaks.
