We experienced a wonderful exchange with Ted and Jenny. They took perfect care of our home and we absolutely loved their home. The area of Hervey Bay is perfect for tourists, there is so much to do and see nearby and the home was clean and comfortable. We could not have asked for kinder people to exchange with.
Through regular correspondence with Kelley prior to our two stay weeks at their home, we knew that we were in for a treat. Kelley and Barry's spacious home was very comfortable, whilst their generosity and friendly welcome ensured that our stay was everything that we had expected and more. Out stay at New Glasgow was relaxing, and a good base to visit Cape Bretton and PEI from. Kelley and Barry certainly took good care of our home and car at Hervey Bay. We are more than happy to recommend them to others who might be considering exchanging with them. Thank you Kelley and Barry
We loved everything about staying at Ted and Jenny's Hervey Bay home. We loved the beaches, used the kayaks. The home was more than large enough for our family. WE loved dining on the patio outside at night. Also watching the rainbow lorikeets in a nearby tree was very amusing! We went over to Fraser Island and Lady Elliot while staying here which was very convenient. Ted and Jenny were able to visit with us on our last day and Ted kindly gave us a ride to the airport! Great home and location! The Pompeo's Boston, Ma. and Wells, Maine.
