“Graham and Kath's home is conveniently situated in a very lovely, central area of Adelaide. Their home is spacious and very clean and comfortable. The gardens are a delight. We enjoyed a relaxing stay exploring Adelaide and the surrounding hills and wine growing regions. Communication with Graham and Kath was very good, with them giving us lots of tips and ideas of what to see and do. A very successful swap.”

“A wonderful traditional house in a popular Adelaide suburb with lovely walks nearby. The host Graham and Kathy had thought of everything, even down to bath robes and slippers, which made our stay exceptionally comfortable. The property has ample parking, a garden to the front and back - with the back gardening offering a secluded dining area and place to chill. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and I would highly recommend a stay to this property. ”
“We had a fantastic trip and stay in Gilberton; the hosts were very helpful, gracious and organised and their home was superbly presented and easy to navigate. They stayed in our home and were great guests who cared for our home perfectly. all in all a wonderful swap!”
“Graham and Kathy have a beautiful home with lovely gardens which is very well located. They left detailed instructions on how to use all the appliances and were great to deal with throughout the trip. We would highly recommend this lovely home and would certainly want to return if the opportunity arose. Steve and Simone”

It is a quiet area but close to transport and restaurants. We so enjoyed staying in this lovely warm and comfortable home, looking out onto the garden with the roses in full bloom. Thanks Graham and Kathy.”
