What we said about Emilie's house:

We enjoyed the town of Antibes better than both Cannes and Nice! It is the perfect location from which to explore the entire French Riviera. There is an adorable village full of restaurants and cute shopping, right on the coast, along with a breathtaking & historic Picasso museum and the most amazing outdoor market that sets up every morning. The apartment is in a very good area, very clean, bright and full of light. It's cozy but has everything you really need while on vacation, including a really big patio to relax on with a view of the water.We have made amazing friends in Manu and Emilie. They introduced us to their friends who were kind enough to invite us to some local activities while we were in town, which were some of our favorite nights in France!It was an amazing experience and so much better than hotel hopping. We plan to keep in touch and hopefully get together again in the future.

Trish from Lahaina said

This beautiful home is located in Newport Coast which is where I lived for 9 years prior to moving to Maui so it was fun to be in my old neighborhood on vacation! The home is very clean with great décor. It is in a great location in Orange County, very close to Corona del Mar and Fashion Island and really great restaurants. Dave and Janelle were super nice and took excellent care of my home in Maui as well. It has been a few years since we have exchanged so I am not sure what the actual dates were but I know it was a few years ago :) I look forward to doing another exchange with them someday if the opportunity arises.

What we said about Trish's house:

This was by far my family's favorite vacation together to date, and most of it had to do with our beautiful accommodations. I planned this trip to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday and she was in tears with joy. We gave her the master suite where she slept like a baby in the most comfortable bedding she's ever experienced and a luxurious master bath. My brother and his fiance took the guest room in the main house, while my husband and I stayed in the casita - for a little extra privacy. The bedding was actually so amazing throughout the house, that we contacted Trish for some recommendations and upgraded our own when we returned home! The location was absolutely perfect and central to everything Maui has to offer. It was hard to leave the house sometimes, we spent hours in the mornings and evenings lounging on the lanai, planning our days and just being together. We cooked a gourmet meal complete with a birthday cake to ring in my mother's day. It was absolutely perfect and we would exchange with Trish again in a heartbeat. Mahalo Trish!
