Italy for a week in September. Open to all locations.
This was our first trip to Amsterdam and we were thrilled with the apartment\'s perfect location. The pent floor terrace overlooks a beautiful canal, and the views from the private, plant filled terrace are superb: old canal houses, restored houses, boats lazily drifting by, and if you happen to be there as we were when Holland qualifies for the World Cup finals, you will also see people jumping into the canal! Quite wonderful. The neighborhood itself is charming, does not feel at all touristy. We rented bikes for the week and enjoyed exploring the city. Amsterdam is truly a special city and this apartment and hosts just make it so much more special. This was one of our favorite exchanges -- do it if you can!\r\n\r\n
What a fantastic place for a holiday; Sonoma Valley. So much to do and so much to see. Close to Napa and San Francisco, but Sonoma itself is fabulous; diverse and friendly. From Sonoma town and its historical center to Russian River and its fabulous forests not to mention Sonoma's vineyards. Yes vineyards, vineyards everywhere, perfect for sampling this most wonderful of California tastes. And as for the house, or should I say home (because that's what it felt like the week we stayed!), it's perfect. So comfortable and so relaxing. Quite moments under a tree, reading a book, listening to bird song, wondering if clouds ever reach this part of the world (didn't see any). Swimming the pool at just about any time of day or just plain gazing at the wonderful views. Fabulous. And our hosts were superb. Friendly and helpful. Even left us a bottle of their Merlot! I can't recommend this place enough. And I can't wait to be able to go back!
We couldn't have asked for a nicer condo in a better location to explore Amsterdam! The condo is in the Jordaan area, one of the most desirable areas of the city. You are literally steps from all that you would like to see and do. The condo is large, tastefully appointed and comfortable. Fraser was first class through the whole planning process. Communication was excellent and they were very helpful with all sorts of suggestions on where to eat and what to do. Thanks to him and Ari... a five star exchange experience!
Had a great time in Dave and Karen's place. Location is fantastic, the home spacious, nicely furnished, bright and comfortable. With the added plus of a fabulous roof terrace with a wonderful view! Dave and Karen were great hosts, communication was easy and there was no fuss! I'd go back in a flash!
