I Can Honestly Say We Had THE Best Time Ever!

We are inspired by all these options to visit such amazing places for free. Our first exchange was to South Africa.

 

About Us

We are Wendy (29) and Stijn (29). Stijn works for a big retail company that specializes in outdoor goods, where he is responsible for marketing. Wendy works as a communications coordinator for a provider in holiday accommodations/ chaletparks.

 

We have been living in The Hague for 5 years now and love the vibrant and cosmopolitan atmosphere of this city. We have an active life and enjoy undertaking activities like snowboarding, surfing, mountainbiking and playing beachvolleyball, but we also enjoy undertaking DIY-activities in and around our house. After having spent a lot of hours rebuilding our own house to make it into a home, we would now love to experience some new destinations and prefer to do this from an accommodation that has a 'home' feeling to it. 

“…we even had a great time with our exchange partner’s children, who showed us places we would have never visited if we would have travelled ‘the normal way’.”

Why We Became Members

After reading an article about home exchange a few months ago, I started browsing around on your website. Inspired by all these options to visit the most amazing places for free, I took my chances and emailed a retired couple from South-Africa. Within a week all details were arranged! 

 

 

About Exchanging Homes

Now we just came back from our stay at their beautiful houses in Johannesburg and Mosselbay and I can honestly say we had THE best time ever! We explored Krugerpark, went shark diving and whalewatching in Mosselbay and Hermanus and we even had a great time with our exchange partner’s children, who showed us places we would have never visited if we would have travelled ‘the normal way’.  After finishing off our holiday with a hospitality exchange in Cape Town, we got back to our own house, which was cleaner than it has ever been. This exchange was a great experience and I hope to enjoy a lot more of these great holidays in the future!
