Kathleen and Phillip from Mid-City said

Steve and Louella have a beautiful, pristine home that felt like an oasis of peace and quiet as soon as we arrived. Everything was very clean and clutter-free, so we felt very relaxed about settling in. The house-manual was full of useful information, including some great recommendations for dining out. Nanaimo was a fun city to explore, with loads of excellent walking routes, shopping, and out-doorsy opportunities. We returned by the end of each day, tired, but totally satisfied. It was especially nice to relax in the hot-tub after all that hiking! Having access to a reliable vehicle with bicycle racks was a thoughtful bonus, and we were able to communicate via text messages very effectively whenever any questions arose. This was our first exchanged, and I must say, I can't imagine it gets any better than this!

What we said about Kathleen and Phillip's house:

Kathleen and Phillip were so easy to communicate with while planning this house exchange, it was a pleasure. They have a lovely comfortable home in a nice area of San Diego. We enjoyed the near-by bars and restaurants that they thoughtfully suggested to us. We had visited San Diego before, so knew that the city was going to be great, but we were not familiar with the North Park area. It is a vibrant and interesting area close enough to walk, or a short drive, to most of the places that we went to. Kathleen and Phillip gave us the use of their smart-car, which was a great bonus when parking in the city. They also allowed us the use of other toys for use at the beach, which was great. It actually rained during our stay, a rare event I am told, but that did not dampen our spirits, as San Diego is such a lovely city, even when it is wet. I only hope they enjoyed their stay as much as we enjoyed ours.

Stayed in Lou and Steve's lovely home Summer 2014. The home is very well cared for and comfortable. Great communication both before and during the exchange. Enjoyed the lovely views from the home as well as numerous deer in the area. Nanaimo is a lovely city and there is lots of good hiking and exploring in the area Recommend this as a great exchange !

What we said about Moreen's house:

We stayed in Moreen's lovely cottage in Kelowna in July 2014. Moreen's home is very comfortable, well cared for and located very conveniently near the town centre, beaches and walking trails. We took advantage of many recommendations made by Moreen for hiking trails, day trips and wineries. We had great communication in the planning stages of the exchange and Moreen was most accommodating and helpful when our hot water heater gave out and needed to be replaced part way through the exchange! Kelowna is so beautiful and the people exceptionally friendly. Exchange is highly recommended.
