Marianne said

Our home exchange in Portland worked perfectly, it was easy to get agreements in place. The house was functioning optimally, it is tastefully decorated and we enjoyed the warm evenings on the terrace. Portland is a lovely city, easy to navigate, very clean, and we saw the population as very helpful and friendly. Nature around Portland is fantastic.

What we said about Marianne 's house:

We had a lot of fun during our exchange in Ringkobing. The North Sea beaches were incredible. We loved walking to the local bakery for danish in Denmark. The town center was always full of activity and shopping and was great for people watching with an ice cream or a beer. Marianne's house was very comfortable and welcoming. We especially liked starting and ending our day on the patio. The house is well positioned for day trips (or longer) to Aarhus (art), Ribe (Viking), and many small communities and beaches in Western Denmark.

Kate from South Africa said

We were so fortunately to arrange an exchange with to this lovely home from our home in Cape Town. We stayed at Julie's house on 4 different occasions and we got to know it so well that it felt like going "home." We kept going back due to our son attending college in Portland. We had great weather over Thanksgiving-- we even used her BBQ. Our stays overlapped both in Cape Town and in Portland. Julie was extremely accommodating and friendly, as well as flexible (and just super nice). She took really good care of our home as well. I hope to see her again some time in South Africa, or anywhere else where we might happen to be at the same time.

What we said about Kate's house:

I had a great exchange In Scarborough/Cape Town. I was looking for a long term exchange that would allow me to spend more than 2 weeks in South Africa. Kate was very accommodating and helpful so I could make this a reality. I used Scarborough as a place to explore the Cape peninsula, Cape Town, and take two safari trips. It worked well. Scarborough has easy access to the Cape of Good Hope and Simon’s Town. Both are incredibly beautiful and I visited often. It was easy to get to places like Chapman’s Peak, Noordhoek, Kirstenbosch, etc. I had a great trip and having a home base made it possible. Kate is helpful, accommodating, and knowledgeable about the area.
