Exchange Reviews

January - December 2009

Our first ever home exchange was with Malcolm and Evelyn ...

Rebecca from London, United Kingdom said

Our first ever home exchange was with Malcolm and Evelyn in June 2009.We could not have a better first exchange and we would highly recommend the experience. Malcolm and Evelyn were very easy to deal with, extremely helpful and organised and we found ourselves well looked after by our hosts even whilst they were on the other side of the world! There was a very helpful "how to" book that answered questions we hadn't even thought of asking. It made staying in their home a really lovely experience. It's also worth pointing out that their neighbours were also extremely friendly and helpful and we felt able to call on them for advice if something out of the ordinary happened. The house was exactly as described. It's large, light and beautifully appointed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed meals out on the deck and although it was 'winter', we still managed to use the barbecue.Terrigal itself is an absolute delight with a number of lovely places to eat out and a great beach. We often walked down to the beach to spend time there and we even went swimming a couple of times. Had the weather been warmer I imagine we'd have been there every day. I can also recommend regular trips to the fishmonger, butcher and the bakery in Terrigal - great fresh produce virtually on the doorstep.Amongst the retail opportunities at Erina Fair (only a short drive away) there is a cinema and we found that Tuesdays were the best value days to catch a new release. Erina Fair is also where the closest supermarkets are and we found everything we needed there. Should you wish to go further afield, Sydney is just about an hour away by car or train (from Gosford). We had some great days out at the Aquarium and Taronga Zoo as well as just exploring the city. Malcolm and Evelyn's place is in a great location. We loved staying there and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them as exchange partners.
