Our stay at Carrie and Ron's beautiful and comfortable home ...

Laila and Rico from Uvita said

Our stay at Carrie and Ron's beautiful and comfortable home in Florida was just wonderful. Their home, the tropical garden, the pool and direct riverview is beautiful. We enjoyed our stay very much, the neighbours where nice and very friendly and so was the conversation with Carrie and Ron. Great shopping centers and supermarkets, like Wholefoods, are nearby and we made nice trips to Miami, West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. It was a really great and wonderful holiday for us, we just loved it. When we came back to Costa Rica, we found our home in perfect a condition, so we would recommend you doing a house swap with Carrie & Ron. Pura Vida Laila & Rico

What we said about Laila and Rico's house:

We had the most wonderful exchange at Laila and Enrico's Villa in Costa Rica. Located in a secluded part of the world, surrounded by tropical jungle, we enjoyed watching Toucans and listening to Howler Monkeys with morning coffee. This home is beautiful and offers everything you could want. The restaurants and beaches in the area are super. Our hosts were so helpful and very respectful of our home. Carrie & Ron

East Florida was the last leg of a month-long driving ...

Lola said

East Florida was the last leg of a month-long driving holiday down the east coast of the States. We had loved the photos of Carrie and John's house, the tropical feel, the river front back garden with pool...so we were lucky to be able to agree an exchange with them. Well, I must say their home is even more beautiful in reality! We were absolutely taken by the views from the garden, so idyllic, you would never have enough of it... the pool was lovely, with a hot tub to relax in the warm Florida nights. Their home has a lovely warm tropical feeling, very comfortable and ideal for our family of 5. Being the end of our holiday, I must admit we did not do much travelling while in Wellington, other than exploring the local areas and visits to Miami and Palm Beach, which were very lively. We were so comfortable chilling out in the yard, we struggled to persuade the kids to go anywhere most days... There are good supermarkets within a 2 mins drive and several restaurants/shops. We specially loved one of the supermarkets, stocking lots of organic produce and excellent meats and wines. There is also a very good mall down the road with most branded shops. Carrie and John are excellent hosts, easy going and very welcoming. Carrie was always reachable with good recommendations throughout our stay. And for the neighbours.... I think they have already had a special mention before :)) but they were fantastic. They really made our holiday extra special! I don't think they come with the package, so better to keep that quiet :)). All in all, a wonderful experience, so we highly recommend an exchange with Carrie and John anytime. We are hoping we can make their experience in Spain as pleasant as they did for us in Florida!
