Our first experience as home exchangers with Mark's family was ...

Gisel from Llíria said

Our first experience as home exchangers with Mark's family was fabulous. The house is wonderful, confortable and clean. It has everything a family can need. The location is very convenient to visit London and the English country side. Highgate is very nice and well connected by public transportation to the city center. London of course has so many interesting places to visit that you can never get tired of it. Everything was perfect, and our exchange partners also took good care of our house and car. Thank you for making this Exchange a success! Best wishes from Valencia.

What we said about Gisel's house:

Our exchange with Gisel and Antonio's and their lovely house in Valencia was our first experience of home swapping and it couldn't have gone better. Their home was beautiful and clean, in a very safe and picturesque area. Our three boys (and us) thoroughly enjoyed their glorious garden with its large swimming pool, spending long lazy afternoons safe in the knowledge that all were happily contained within it's boundaries. Valencia is a wonderful holiday destination, the zoo has got to be the best in the world. There is some thrilling architecture - The Palau de les Arts is unmissable - excellent beaches and of course, great Spanish food. In turn, Gisel and Antonio were respectful of our house and car and always a pleasure to communicate with, before, during and after our exchange.

Louise and Mark are the perfect home exchangers. They are organized, friendly and helpful. They did their best to ensure us a great stay in their house. A very complete house guide was at our disposal.Their house is very spacious, full of lovely details, extremely comfortable, specially the fantastic full equipped kitchen. The house is very well located for visiting London and the area is very quiet when you come back home after a long day in the center of the city. Thank you Louise, Mark and children!
