Jan & Cliff from Moab said

It was easy & a great pleasure to plan the exchange with Joanne & Tom. We felt warmly welcomed even before we walked in the door of their lovely condo. As we arrived, we were immediately struck by the efforts they had made to enable our comfort - clear information about their space & the vibrant city of Portland, as well as thoughtful provisions for us to "move in." We loved being able to walk along the River, from right outside their door - to all the way downtown! Dining on their peaceful patio was the perfect finale to our tourist excursions. AND, the perfect finale to our homecoming at the end of the exchange was finding our home in perfect order. We could not recommend an exchange with Joanne & Tom more highly.

What we said about Jan & Cliff's house:

We are so grateful that Jan and Cliff were willing to share their incredibly peaceful home. We felt their welcoming and hospitality immediately - lots of information to help us ease into the house and vacation. The area is so full of interesting and beautiful places. We particularly liked hiking in the parks and exploring rock art. Plus the night skies were amazing. We highly recommend their place as a home exchange. They were respectful and caring in our home and left it in immaculate condition so you should have no reservations about sharing your home with them.

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful condo on the Willamette River. It is as modern and immaculate in person as it appears in the photos and the location is awesome. As you can likely see, the development is immediately adjacent to both the river and the bike/walking path that takes you right into downtown Portland. And, in route you will pass multiple great restaurants, shops and courtyards. We really enjoyed the food and coffee in the immediate vicinity of the condo and found it convenient in every way. Thank you Joanne and Tom for your hospitality, we look forward to your visit to our home in Sandpoint, Idaho.

We had a wonderful stay at Joanne and Tom's beautifully remodeled condo. It is ideally located on the Willamette River and close to shopping and restaurants. The Willamette River Greenway is a miles-long walking/biking path that is just a moment from the condo. We met Joanne and Tom before our exchange, and they are lovely hosts. They were so patient while air conditioning was installed during the first week of their stay at our home in Kona. We highly recommend them for your exchange in Portland.

What we said about Richard and Carol Bolen's house:

We so loved our stay. Carol and Richard did a great job of making us feel welcome and comfortable in their beautiful home. We enjoyed many wonders of the island - snorkeling, swimming, eating, sailing, stargazing, volcanoes and history. Coffee in the AM and wine as the sun sets on the lanai was a daily treat. Carol and Richard were gracious hosts and wonderful exchangers, taking excellent care of our home and vehicle.. We highly recommend exchanging with them.
