G'day from London
We are a couple of retired Aussies who live in London because we think it is one of the most wonderful, vibrant cities in the world. Through HomeExchange, we hope to live our passion for travelling the world.
We are a respectful couple who will take great care of your home. You can be certain that we will look after it as you would want it looked after. Naturally, we expect the same from you.

We are passionate about living happily and enjoying life. We love travelling and seeing new places. Some of our most memorable moments have been those spent sitting in the sun, watching the world go by and enjoying a glass of wine.
We're inveterate walkers and love to wander around enjoying the sites and smells that this wonderful world has to offer.
We had a great week in London, the apartment is very conveniently located for London Center and it has great views. Our exchange was wonderful, thank you Margaret and John, you were very good and considerate guests!
We really enjoyed our stay in your Aerdenhout home Juup and Jaap. The house was peaceful and well located to visit Amsterdam and the surrounding areas. We felt welcome and at home during our stay. Thank you for being thoughtful and respectful exchangers.
We really enjoyed this exchange. The apartment is modern and lovely. The bedrooms are good sized, the beds comfortable. Both bathrooms have great facilities. The open concept living area is very bright and light with good views of the street life below and the cable car across the street. The flat is basically right over a grocery store that opens from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. so it is very convenient. We really enjoyed the neighborhood restaurants and wish we'd spent just a bit more time in the neighborhood. Taking the Tube was super easy. It's a bit far to come home for lunch, so we would usually eat lunch out and there is certainly no shortage great food. Also, good markets one or two tube stops away. Easy to take the cable car over to the 02 Center for a movie or a meal. The kitchen has everything you could need. Even though we were there one entire month….we could've stayed longer. We just really got into it. John and Margaret were great. They tended our dog while we were away and left him and our home in wonderful condition.
We had a great stay in Danny and Kerri's Salt Lake City home. The home is very spacious and convenient to the ski slopes, where we spent a great deal of our time. Coming home to Louie (dog and best friend) and the open gas fireplace after a days skiing was wonderful. The large gourmet kitchen allowed us to cater for ourselves much of the time with shops and restaurants all very handy. Danny and Kerri made sure we felt welcome and were always available to answer any questions we had. Thank you for a wonderful exchange.
We just returned from a month long stay in John and Margaret's lovely apartment. It is very spacious with beautiful views of the docks, and it has every amenity needed, especially in the kitchen. The proximity of the tube is a great advantage, as is the Tesco Express on the main floor of the building. After full days of exploring and enjoying the cultural and culinary offerings of one of Europe's greatest cities, it was always a pleasure to return to their home. Their home book included amazingly helpful information on sightseeing opportunities, transportation and instructions regarding details of living in the apartment. Thank you John and Margaret.
