Exchange Reviews

August - August 2007

Our exchange with the Valentine was definitively a positive experience. ...

Lise from Laval said

Our exchange with the Valentine was definitively a positive experience. It was both our first time and trust was establish from the start. We exchange homes, cars and even mobile phones for two weeks !!! We were able to meet at both ends of the trip and it was very nice to get acquainted. Jeff picked us up at the airport and Leah had prepared good information for us on details of the house, the surroundings and local contacts should we need them. The house and the garden were very comfortable (very well equipped kitchen !) and it felt like home when we came back from a few days visit down to southern California. San Rafael is well located, close to San Francisco, the Napa Valley and the coast beaches and park. California is a place to see ! We had a wonderful vacation. And it was nice to come back home and find everything was perfect ! To Jeff & Leah... Thanks for sharing this first experience with us ! Lise & Guillaume

What we said about Lise's house:

We had a wonderful exchange with Lise and her son Guillaume and would highly recommend them for future exchanges. Lise was incredibly helpful and gracious in planning logistics and gathering local information for us. Laval was a great springboard to see Montreal, Ottawa, and explore Quebec. The house and car were well appointed and we fell in love with their cat Gizmo. They treated our home and car with care and respect. We have only good things to say about the exchange and are glad that our first exchange went so smoothly! all the best, Leah & Jeff Valentine
