We love swimming and cycling as a family.
We have done many exchanges, but our exchange with Fabrice, Valerie & family in July 2011 was possibly our most enjoyable. We loved their apartment, Juan Les Pins and France. Our home was spotless when we returned. Would highly recommend.
We spent our first home exchange's holiday in Salthill Galway in July 09 and we absolutely loved it !Brendan and Christina have got a very sweet and confortable home and they organised everything for us to feel great, and we did ! They took care of our home and our cats... don't hesitate to exchange with this family : they are as great as Ireland is !
We visited Le Pouldu in the Summer of 09 and had an absolutely marvellous time - one of our most memorable exchanges and didn't want to leave. Sophie, Pascal and Arthur have a beautiful home in a great location. It is also a great base to visit Brittany. Our home was spotless on our return. You will be very lucky to exchange with this family.
We stayed in Salthil over Easter holidays. It was our first exchange but Christina guided us through it at ease. We had a fabulous time staying at their beautiful family home in Salthil and its location was second to none. We found our home in perfect condition on our return. A very good base to visit Galway, and a very warm welcome awaits.
We had an absolutely marvellous long weekend here in Killorglin in 2009 - possibly our most enjoyable exchange. The house is beautiful and spotless and the location is second to none. Would thoroughly recommend.
We had an absolutely great time at this beautiful home in Salthill (Galway). Brendan prepared everything with care and we were absolutely delighted with the house and the location too, very close of many places of interest in the west of Ireland. I absolutely recommend this house.
We are family with two small children and had a brilliant holiday in Guardamar. The apartment was perfect for us. It had everything we needed. It's location was second to none, literally 30 steps from the prom and beach. The beach itself with playgrounds were superb and safe. We also found a couple of really nice restaurants which we went to a lot. Manuel and family left our house spotless. Thanks Manuel for a memorable holiday.
Looking at the pictures of our summer holidays, we woud like to thank Brendan and Christina for the great opportunity they gave us to get to know at least a part of Ireland.To be able to live in their confortable house allowed us to have a perfect departure point to visit places such as Connemara, Burren, Aran islands, and to enjoy a wonderful walk along the sea to the heart of Galway, which we took everytime we could. With friendship Bruno and Mariangela.
We had an unforgetable holiday in Villasimius, maybe our best ever. The house, beach, town, weather and food were all fantastic. Lovely people who left our house in Ireland spotless. Wonderful exchange. Would love to return.
The exchange with Brendan and his family was absolutely a wonderful experience! We had an home and car exchange in July; Galway is a bustling town and a pleasant place to spend your holidays, the surroundings (Connemara, Aran Islands..) are a good taste for the beauties of Ireland ... simply amazing! The house is very welcoming, comfortable and bright, Brendan and Christina are extremely reliable and respectful, we are truly content to have known so lovely people. Thanks for all! Silvia and Luigi
We're from Ireland and we had a fantastic time in La Maddalena in July 2012. From start to finish it was wonderful. The house, car, town, weather, beaches and food were all super. Silvia & Luigi were very organised, easy to contact, very generous and left our home spotless. One of our very best and most enjoyable exchanges. No hesitation in recommending. Would love to return. Ciao, Brendan, Christina, Isabel & Laura
We successfully exchanged home and car with this lovely family in July/August 2012. Their cosy house in a nice neighborhood is well situated for local activities in the Galway area as well as for day trips into the Connemara or along Ireland's west coast. Thanks a lot for the good exchange, we keep Ireland in very good memory!
We visited Reto, Daniela and family's beautiful home in Nidau in August 2012 and had the most fantastic exchange. Everything from start to finish was absolutely super. The house is beautiful, in a fantastic location with so much to see and do. I couldn't say enough about this exchange, absolutely magic. Our home was spotless on our return. 5 star exchange. Thank you Reto and family from all the Burke's in Ireland.
We’ll never forget the fantastic holiday’s we had in Brendan & Christina’s house. We found ourselves in a quiet neighborhood, only a 5 min. walk away of the beach, within walking distance to Salthill (with lovely restaurants and shops) and a 10 min. drive to Galway. The house itself is beautiful and spacious with many nice decorated rooms and a backyard with a trampoline (which our kids liked most) and a hammock. It was our starting point for our memorable trips to Aran islands, cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey and as well the Galway races and many more. We highly recommend this exchange, our house&car were spotless on our return and even our garden was watered regularly during the hot season.
We enjoyed our stay in Brendan and Christina's house in summer 2014. We succesfully switched our houses and cars. The house is very well located and very spacefull, near the seaside and near Galway wich is a very busy and pleasant town. It was our starting point for unforgetable trip to Inis More in Aran islands and mountain walks in Connemara National Park. Thank you for this exchange !
We exchanged with Gaelle, Olivier & the boys for two weeks in July 2014 and had a wonderful time. Their home is really nice, very clean and with a lovely back private garden. We enjoyed visiting places like the Chateau in Angers, the gardens in Villandry, Saumur and Ile de Re. Our house was spotless on our return. Lovely people to exchange with and very organised. Merci beaucoup.
We've swapped house twice with Brendan & Christina and we loved it both times. Their kids are about the same age or a bit older than ours, so our children had a great time too. Their house is spacious, cosy and comfortable and the location is excellent, just a short drive from Galway city and near all amenities in Salthill. Great and easy communication with Brendan & Christina.
We had an exchange with Christina, Brendan und the girls in July 2015 and enjoyed the lovely time at their nicely equipped home. The house is best located with a very small distance to the see. We loved to go at the Promenade to Galway. Many places of interest were easy to reach and we had an exciting time at Connemara and the Burren. Our home and car were spotless on our return.Thank you for the nice travel preparation and the hearty welcome in your home. UNFORGETTABLE... Thanks a lot.
We exchanged with Julia, Martin and the girls in July 2015 for 12 days and it was a wonderful holiday. Their house and location were second to none. There was so much for us to do within a short drive of their house. We loved the hiking and outdoor swimming all of which was planned for us by these lovely people. Our house was spotless on our return. They are very organised and very friendly. An unforgettable exchange. Thank you all.
We spent a wonderful five days in Christina and Brendan's lovely home. The location was perfect - just a couple of minutes from the promenade but in a quiet tree lined road. Their home is modern, spacious and very comfortable making our stay very enjoyable. They are a really helpful couple and as experienced home exchangers gave us lots of friendly advise. Our home was left as we had left it and we would have pleasure in exchanging again.
