We just returned from a long weekend in New York ...

Jennifer from Hyannis said

We just returned from a long weekend in New York city at Daphne's amazing Soho loft. To say we LOVED everything about it is an understatement. The neighborhood is ideal for exploring the city - the loft is set among small streets full of great restaurants and unique shops plus the convenience of Broadway on one side and the Spring Street subway stop just at the corner. Short walks bring you to Little Italy, Chinatown, Noho and the Village & Union Square. The location of this home could not be better if you are looking to be downtown! The loft itself was breathtaking. It is open, spacious, immaculate, bright and renovated with great style. The high ceilings, top of the line kitchen, and great 6th floor views all add to the feeling that you're staying in luxury accommodations. The loft is modern yet very comfortable - clearly a much loved home. With all that is going on outside your door, the apartment was a quiet oasis at the end of the day. Daphne and her husband were friendly, super organized, responsive and easy to work with regarding all logistics. In short, it was a great exchange experience! We would love to be able to return again sometime!

What we said about Jennifer's house:

Our family just came home from the most wonderful vacation in Jennifer's Cape Cod house. It was our very first exchange and we could not have asked for a more fantastic experience. The house is beautiful inside and out, tastefully decorated, comfortable, very well-equipped, bright and spotless. The yard is huge and relaxing; we enjoyed spending time kicking balls around the yard, grilling, having meals on the nice patio furniture, and napping on the hammock. The house is very well-located on a dead-end road with no through traffic, just minutes from Main Street restaurants, stores and ice-cream shops (must try Katie's!), from the marina, the ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, and from Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. When we returned, our apartment was very clean and tidy; Jennifer even took good care of our plants. Jennifer was very considerate and easy to work with throughout the exchange. I would recommend her as an exchange partner without hesitation and would be thrilled to swap with her again myself.

We had a trip that we will never forget! We don't have to tell you about the neighbourhood because it's Soho and they are right in the middle, yet on a quiet block. The best shopping and restaurants in the world are right at your doorstep. The rest of New York is accessible in minutes with multiple subway lines within a short walk. The pictures don't do the apartment justice. When you walk in, it is breathtaking. So huge and so 'New York'. It was a comfortable, quiet and stylish oasis in the middle of this fantastic city. Their home was very well equipped and we were able to make full meals when the kids felt tired out after exploring. Daphne and Roger were so lovely to organize with and they left our place perfect. They left wonderful notes about what to do and where to eat in New York and we would not hesitate to recommend an exchange with them. Thank you so much Daphne and Roger, and we wish you all the best with your future exchanges!

What we said about Craig Family 's house:

We just came home from a terrific exchange with Tracy and Matthew's family. Their home in Vancouver is in an amazing location. It is a few blocks or about 5 minutes walk from the False Creek waterfront and marina where there are breathtaking scenery, playgrounds, bike paths, and lots of green space. Within their immediate neighborhood in Yaletown, there are countless restaurants, cafes, bars, cute sushi spots, juice bars, great shopping, hotels, excellent grocery stores...really anything you would expect from a cosmopolitan city, it is right there within a 6 blocks radius of Matthew and Tracy's. They were also within 3 blocks walk from a train stop. We were in town for a family wedding so did not have time to use the gym and hot tub in the building, but they looked very nice, as was the lobby. The indoor parking garage was very clean and modern; Matthew and Tracy were generous enough to let us use their SUV, which was spotless and drove like a dream. It even had a booster seat in it for our 5 year old. Now about their apartment...I really feel it is not fair to call it an apartment because it really is an exquisite home, almost like a house with a private outdoor garden oasis in the middle of Vancouver. The interior and the garden terrace were both very spacious, immaculate, and tastefully decorated yet very welcoming and comfortable. It was a very well-equipped home, they even had multiple kinds of coffee machines for different tastes, and the washer dryer were very handy. Everything worked well, and were very new and clean. Lastly, Matthew and Tracy couldn't have been nicer people. They were very pleasant to work with leading up to the exchange...very courteous and easy-going. They left very detailed and organized notes for us about their home, and they left our home in excellent shape after a week's stay. I would recommend an exchange with this wonderful family without hesitation.
