Richard from Oakland, USA said

Our recent exchange experience exceeded our expectations in all areas. The Hendersons were a joy to work with as we established our exchange. Communications were comfortable, casual, and straight forward. They took great care of our home including some plant care and cat care. They welcomed us into their spotless home with a wealth of information and ideas of what to see and do in their community and surrounding areas. Their home is exceptionally well appointed, comfortable, and an absolutely wonderful place to relax and enjoy a slower pace. And as a destination, we found NE Georgia to have a good many interesting destinations and attractions. Their location is a great jumping off spot to see Atlanta, coastal communiteis like Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA., as well as mountain destinations like Great Smoky Mountain National Park, numerous beautiful waterfalls, and the Southern Appalacian Mountains. We enjoyed the culinary offerings of the region and the wonderfully nice people we encountered during our visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Henderson's wonderful home and can recommend and exchange with them without reservation to anyone interested in experiencing this region of the Southern U.S.

What we said about Richard's house:

Our home exchange with Rick and Julie was an experience of a lifetime. It was the first time our family had been to the San Francisco area. Our exchange was a dream that had come true. Throughout our stay we visited San Francisco frequently, since San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf was a mere 17 minutes from their home. We became very familiar with San Francisco's sites and restaurants. Their home was conveniently located near many appealing locations. During our vacation we visited Napa and Sonoma Valleys, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Alcatraz, Muir Beach, Point Reyes, Bodega Bay, Berkley, Sausalito, Santa Cruz Beach, Monterey, Pebble Beach ' 17 mile Drive, and historic Sacramento. Rick and Julie advised us on places of interest, and they left us many brochures and passes for the area. They were even so thoughtful as to leave us snacks for after our long plane ride. We were instantly at ease with our preparations to exchange with them . . . which continued throughout the whole process. Also, Rick and Julie took exceptionally good care of our home while we were away.

We had a wonderful time at Karen's lakefront home in Hartwell. Everyday we took out our jet ski for miles and miles along the beautiful lake. We loved the fact that the home was perfect for those who love to stay home and cook. I read many of Karen's cookbooks on healthy eating and made quite a few of the recipes while we were there. We also found many other things to do while in town such as touring many of the nearby waterfalls. You won't go wrong if you choose this destination for your vacation.

What we said about Carol O'Donoghue-Realtor Jacksonville Florida's house:

Carol's 2 bedroom Oceanfront condo was fabulous! There was always something going on at the beach, and it is in a large city where you can find many restaurants and shopping. You could look from the bedroom and living area directly on to the beach. (Waking up with an ocean view with crashing waves was perfect!) I would highly recommend this place for a beach get-a-way!

Leslie from Charleston said

I'm not sure what the best part of this exchange was... The BEAUTIFUL home, the spectacular lake, or Karen and Bruce's hospitality. Toccoa Falls is amazing and so is just floating off the dock. There is also access to the community pool just steps away. The kids caught fish one right after another off the dock! One of the best, easiest swaps you can ask for.

What we said about Leslie's house:

Leslie's home is strategically located outside of Charleston. The home is close to all of the downtown attractions and many plantations. We enjoyed kayaking in Bull Creek, jogging in the neighborhood, and visiting Folly Beach. We could visit here many times and find something else completely new to do. Our hostess was amazingly sweet and accommodating, too.
