“Dear Nicky and Stuart, Amelia and Samantha. We are sorry that we were still on our long 4 months journey when you arrived in our house in Saint-Mandrier-sur-Mer in the South of France. We were happy to be back home just in time to spend two meals with the four of you. We can really recommend you to would be home exchangers, as you are a wonderful family, full of respect for others and for the house you've stayed in. Your two daughters are wonderful and we were happy to have them staying in our house. You left hour house spotless, as we like, and we thank you all for it. Have a great time in Europe for the rest of your journey, and safe travel back to Auckland in New Zealand. All the best to you all. Claire and Jacki ”

“Dear Nicky and Stuart, We have just recently spent a fantastic week in your outstanding and modern house situated in one of the nicest Auckland suburbs. Devonport is just across the Auckland bay, and your house a short 15 minutes walk to the ferry which takes one in the heart of the city in just 10 minutes. The view from the house on another portion of the bay, looking at Rangitoto, one of the many extinct volcanoes that counts the city, is just exquisite. One can have breakfast on the deck, looking at the wind surfers a short way ahead. We were so spoiled by you, as you went out of your way to take us many miles out of Auckland, to visit Piha and Hahei on the Coromandel peninsula, 2 very outstanding places. We really enjoyed it so much. We enjoyed your company and your two daughters are so well behaved, it is a pleasure to have them around. We are very much looking forward to seeing you again soon in France, and hope you'll spend a great time travelling through Europe. Merci de votre accueil formidable dans votre si belle maison. Bien amicalement. Of course we need to highly recommend you and your house to anyone wishing to visit Auckland on a house exchange basis. You certainly won't regret this choice. With our very best wishes to all 4 of you, and a big THANKS YOU. Claire and Jacki ”
“Wow. This was a most amazing place to stay. Staying at a Ritz Carlton property is as luxurious as you can imagine. It is comfortable and the staff is exceptional in taking care of you for your every need. Unlike other swaps or exchanges, this one is in a condo that has a concierge service, that is there for your every need. It is on the Northstar ski resort mountain, and you can take the gondola down to the Northstar Village for a dinner and movie. You can take advantage of the amenities in the Hotel next door, we took advantage of the game room, since we were There with our two kids. We also took advantage of the nightly marshmallow s'mores event they hold early evenings. We came after ski season, to enjoy the sunshine but alas, it rained most of the trip. And, it didn't matter. We were so happy doing "nothing" in one of the most beautiful locations in the world. Big thanks, Kate.”
“Wonderful family vacation. The condo is lovely and both Northstar and the Ritz are extremely kid (and adult) friendly! ”
