We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home in ...

Claudine from Strasbourg said

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home in Dana Point. It was certainly one of our favourite swaps among our numerous house exchanges! The house is decorated with lots of taste and the Japanese style garden is a true invitation to meditation. We enjoyed relaxing on the large terrace offering a wonderful view on the bay plus the hot tub where our children and us spent some exceptional evenings. The area is rich in places to visit and activities: National parks, beaches, San Diego, LA, historical landmarks and of course plenty of good restaurants. The Catalina islands are not far away with spectacular diving. For those looking for quieter activities, morning yoga classes is available just five minutes away by car from the house. Jack and Susan were just great and very helpful in the preparation of this trip that will remain as one of our best family trip.C and Ph Strasbourg, France

What we said about Claudine's house:

Our exchange in Strasbourg was one of our very favorite trading experiences. Claudine & Philippe's wonderful home is very comfortable and inviting and is located in a very nice neighborhood convenient to walks along the Rhine and visits to the Orangerie a Strasbourg. The town of Strasbourg is wonderful as is the Cathedral. And proximity to Germany and the Romantic Road, Switzerland and the Alsace wine area is marvelous. We loved the Alsatian wine villages down to Colmar and Koningsberg Castle. It was a completely wonderful experience, Claudine and Philippe were charming and easy to trade with and we could not recommend it more highly.

Aloha! I have done numerous exchanges with Jack and Linda ...

Trish from Lahaina said

Aloha! I have done numerous exchanges with Jack and Linda and since have been honored to now call them my dear friends! They are such lovely people with such a beautiful home that I always feel at home in. Their home is filled with Hawaiian and Balinese style, both which I love along with a lot of other eclectic décor from their world travels. The view from their front lanai (or backyard area facing the ocean) is so amazing and comfortable. It is a place you just want to hang out and have wine, put the fireplace on and take in the sunset. The exchange with Jack and Linda was one of my first which is why I think I continued to home exchange for the past 7 years. I wish I could say they have all been as pleasant as with Jack and Linda, but they really have been the best all around experience I have had to date! They have always taken such great care of my home as well. I look forward to many more exchanges with Jack & Linda Cross, they are simple delightful and so is their beautiful home! Mahalo Cross' for all of the wonderful years of exchanges and most importantly, your friendship! Trish Huneycutt

What we said about Trish's house:

Trish's home in Kaanapali is absolutely breathtaking. Whatever you have imagined a Hawaiian home to be this is it! Gorgeous appointments and finishes while still relaxed and comfortable. Incredible views - relaxing Tradewinds - it is really hard to describe just how lovely. We have had the opportunity to trade with Trish more than once and walking into her home every time is instant decompression. Her home is in a perfect location, close to beaches, shopping, resorts and restaurants. We found Trish wonderful to work and plan with and have actually been fortunate enough to develop a close friendship through the process. I cannot recommend the experience more highly. And we cannot wait to go back.
