Exchange Reviews

January - December 2011

Dear Eileen and David, This was my first home exchange ...

Carol from Queens said

Dear Eileen and David, This was my first home exchange and what a gift to be able to experience this with you. Eileen has been such a gracious host, we went back and forth with queries with both our cities. Your flat in Venice is to die for and something to be desired for.I loved that everything was completely refurbished, to the marble floors in the living room, kitchen, bathrooms, the skylights were specially wonderful as it let in some natural light, and the best part of all, the windows were double panes which meant that you couldn't hear any noise from the outside, super quite and the view from the kitchen to the campo ruga was lovely specially in the mist. The only drawback was not having an elevator but that added charm to the Venetian townhouse. We walked everywhere from your flat, the costelo area had everything we needed, a few restaurants, grocery, bakery and cafes. The walk to San Marks Square is a 15 minute walk, as is to the vaporettos, such a great walking city. It was really a pleasure dealing with you, and I hope we can arrange an exchange again in the near future. All the best, Carol, Robert and Daniella

What we said about Carol 's house:

Dear Carol, Having spent a week at your lovely home on Roosevelt Island, Manhattan, NY, I am taking this opportunity to thank you for your kind hospitality and to acknowledge what a lovely spacious, bright home you have, on this most private of spaces in the very heart of New York. I was in the city for an art fair and the location of your home was so perfect, I had a lovely tram journey each morning and then found myself only a few blocks from the Armory Building where the fair was being held. The apartment was so bright and well appointed that it really felt like home to come back to each evening, and although I didn't really do much cooking, everything was there if I had wanted to. I am delighted to recommend you as a wonderful host and it was so helpful that you took the time to show me the various public transport stations and the swimming pool locally etc. I hope that perhaps this exchange can work again for both parties, and hope that you have a similarly good experience when you come to our home in Italy. With kind regards, David
