Lahlee's home, Melbourne
Lahlee in Australia is ready to exchange her home!

“This was a heavenly home exchange! I could not have asked for anything better. Lahlee and Marc are a total delight and it was wonderful to get to meet with them in person to get oriented to the neighborhood. And their place is truly incredible. Beautifully designed modern space that is also super quirky and comfortable. You also couldn't ask for a better location for exploring Melbourne. By all accounts, I would say that this exchange was an ideal manifestation of what I was hoping home exchange would be all about--a great way to connect with like-minded people who share similar interests and a way to travel that connects you with the local vibe in a truly authentic way. I can't wait to keep in touch with Lahlee and Marc and help to make their USA visit as good as mine was!”- Mallory
