“This was our first home exchange experience and we find it difficult to believe that any future exchange could be better. We really appreciated the contact we had with Mike & Dale, before, during and after the exchange, in addition to the information & welcome we received, on arrival at their home. On top of all of this, we enjoyed the comfort of their lovely home, in its' rural setting, minutes from the lakes of the wonderful Kawartha Lakes district. As "first time" exchangers, we learned a lot from Mike & Dale - all of it positive.”
Mike's reviewsAs a host (2)
“In August 2010 we had three weeks at the home of Mike and Dale. It was our first home exchange experience and it was amazing. We had swapped cars, bikes and we could use their canoe. They have a lovely house with large garden and they had a lot of information collected for short trips in the neighborhood. Great area for walking and cycling. We liked it very much and it was a relaxing 3 weeks.”
