We just returned from our 1st homeexchange. We totally loved it. The home was beautiful the area was wonderful and the people very friendly. We were lucky to have met Diane, Carlos and the girls (the home owners) on our way to their place as they were coming to ours. Beautiful family. On our return we met again this time for lunch 1/2 way home. We feel as if we have known them for years. We are so thankful to homeexchange.com this is truly a wonderful opportunity to travel, meet people and save money. Diane and Carlos have a beautiful place in Georgia and we highly recommend anyone thinking about traveling over Atlanta to check their listing out. :) Thank you homeexcange for the opportunity.

Diane and Carlos provided a very spacious, clean, elegantly furnished, comfortable home located in a beautiful forested upscale development. We have done many home exchanges and this is one of the nicest homes we have visited. We loved the location which was convenient for visiting Atlanta by car or using the light rail system; or for driving to the Blue Ridge Mountains for a day trip or a several day getaway. The drive to and from that area was beautiful and we had two opportunities to walk on the Appalachian Trail. There are so many choices while staying at their home. There are many parks and nature areas to visit as well as many cultural and tourist sites in the Atlanta area. We particularly enjoyed the Civil War Exhibit at the Atlanta History Center. Near the home are Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods markets, drugstores and a variety of restaurants. We highly recommend an exchange with Diane and Carlos.

What we said about Bobbi & Gene's house:

We have just returned from Sunny Southern California. We were fortunate to stay 3 weeks in Beautiful Solana Beach, just north of San Diego. Gene and Bobbie's home was beautiful and clean as well very comfortable. A well stocked kitchen made cooking a breeze. They have an incredible landscaped back yard for dining and relaxing. Their home is within walking distant to the beach and shopping. We watched so many beautiful sunsets. With lots to do and see in and around San Diego, we kept busy sight seeing and exploring. A must place for everyone to visit. You will not be disappointed with this location. We hope to return soon! Many thanks to Bobbie and Gene for letting us use their home as our home away from home.

We were happy to meet Diane and Carlos on our way to each others' homes for our exchange. We felt like instant friends since we had communicated so much ahead of time to insure a successful exchange. And was it ever successful! Their spacious, art-filled, oh-so-comfortable home delighted us in every way. The quiet wooded setting was very relaxing, yet we were so close to everything we needed. We easily reached the center city (Atlanta) for plays, museums, and and other urban pleasures, yet we had this wonderful retreat in Sandy Springs to return to. We enjoyed hiking in nearby Morgan Falls Overlook Park, with its excellent facilities for families. We wish we'd had more time for movies so we could take full advantage of the huge, well-appointed media room downstairs. The nearby LeFont Sandy Springs theater always has the best films showing. Local restaurants we enjoyed most were La Petite Maison, Flavors, and Horseradish Grill. We hope to exchange with Diane and Carlos again.

What we said about Raymond's house:

We exchanged for this property in Sep-Oct of 2013 and had a wonderful time. The home was beautiful, very comfortable, clean and spacious. We enjoyed the beautiful sandy beach (a walking distance), riding bikes and the wonderful local restaurants (Southern Soul Barbecue, Halyards, Barbara Jeans, Beach Club in Sea Island and the Red Barn were our favorites). We enjoyed visiting several of the historic sites, took the trolley around the island and enjoyed bicycling the whole island. We felt that our week went too fast with so much to see and enjoy in the area. Our hosts Ray and Diane were great and coordinated all details to make our stay very comfortable. We were happy to meet our hosts, on our way to the exchange. They are wonderful people. We felt as we have been friends for a long time and now we consider them part of our extended family. Ray and Diane have a beautiful home in St Simons Island and we will be delighted to exchange with them in the future. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great Home Exchange experience that wants to enjoy the beauty of the Georgia beaches.

What we said about Manuel's house:

We exchanged for this property on February 2014 during the surf season and had a wonderful time. The condo was beautiful, very comfortable and spacious. It has glass walls which open onto balcony with an spectacular view of the beach. We enjoyed the beach in front of the condo and enjoyed relaxing in the balcony. We liked visiting several of the beautiful surfing beaches in the area as well as the downtown. We enjoyed the restaurants in the area. Our time there felt that our week went too fast with so much to see and enjoy in the area. Our hosts Manuel was great and coordinated all details to make our stay very comfortable. We felt as if we have been friends for a long time. They have already visited our home in Atlanta. We will be delighted to exchange with them in the future. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great Home Exchange experience that wants to enjoy the beauty of the sunny Puerto Rico beaches (even in the winter time, that is the prime time for surfing).

Diane, Carlos and their daughters stayed in our home March 1-9 and wrote a lovely review for us. They were wonderful guests, and we recommend an exchange with them to anyone interested in visiting the Atlanta area. We will be using their home this summer and very much look forward to it. We had a delightful time showing them our beautiful part of Florida. They are a terrific family and left out condo in immaculate condition; their smiling daughters were a pleasure. We could not ask for better exchange partners and are happy to consider them new friends. We are very pleased they enjoyed their stay in our home.

What we said about Chi and Susan 's house:

We exchanged for this property in March 2014 and had a wonderful time. The condo was beautifully decorated. It has glass walls with a wonderful view of the golf of Mexico. It was clean, very comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed the delightful art collection they have. The subdivision has great amenities: two swimming pools, tennis courts, marina, Jacuzzi and two great beaches minutes away. We enjoyed visiting several of the beautiful beaches in the Clear Water area, visiting some of the local attractions and dining in several of the restaurants in the historic downtown. We felt that our week went too fast with so much to see and enjoy in the area. Our hosts Susan and Chi were wonderful hosts and were very attentive to all details. We felt as if we have been friends for a long time and now we consider them a part of our extended family. We will be welcoming them in our home when they visit Atlanta. They have a beautiful home and we will be delighted to exchange with them again in the future. We highly recommend their place to anyone looking for a great Home Exchange experience that wants to enjoy the beauty of the sunny Florida beaches.

We stayed at Diane's and Carlos's home for a week in June. What a beautiful, gracious home! It is large, has a wonderful layout, is furnished elegantly and equipped for total comfort. We felt completely at ease and "at home," as everything was provided. Any questions were answered quickly by the wonderful Welcome Book Diane and Carlos prepared for exchangers. The neighborhood is wooded, and quite lovely. It was convenient to all our family and friends in the area and also an easy trip into Atlanta proper by either car or mass transit. Diane, Carlos and two of their daughters used our Florida condo in March. They are considerate and careful exchange partners who we now count as friends. We certainly recommend them and their beautiful home enthusiastically to visitors to the Atlanta area.

What we said about Jan and Peter's house:

We exchanged for this property in March of 2015 and had a wonderful time. The home was beautiful and very comfortable. It was in a great location in DC close to all major sighseen places in DC. We were happy to get to know Jan & Peter - our hosts, they are wonderful people. We felt as we have been friends for a long time and now we consider them part of our extended family.

We had a great time going around the city. We felt that our week went too fast with so much to see and enjoy in the area.
