G'Day from the sunny Gold Coast
G'day! My name is Beth and together with my husband Chris and our son Daniel we are looking for adventure. We are a close knit family of 3 who sometimes travel with my senior parents. We love exploring new places & want to see the world through a locals eyes. We are clean & tidy people who don't smoke & we would look after your home as if it was our own.
Chris is lucky enough to be able to work from any location as long as he has fast internet access so we need that wherever we exchange. Our son, Daniel has just turned 4 but unlike some children he is very quiet & respectful of other peoples things.
We love to travel all over the world and have decided that Home exchange would allow us to explore even more. We have exchanged a few times now & we are hooked. We hope that you will honor us with a chance to look after your home.

We are always intetested in local swaps during long weekends & the QLD school holidays. Except for the Christmas / New Year period as this is when we do most of our overseas swaps.
We love activities that we can do as a family. Iconic sights that an area is known for are high on our list along with checking out the native wildlife.
We enjoy skiing but we haven't done very much as it doesn't snow in Queensland.
We adore all things Disney, From the movies to the parks & especially the cruise line.
What a wonderful short holiday we had. The apartment is amazing and the views are breathtaking, day and night. So much to see and do in the area though that we did not have very much time to enjoy the large TV and relax on the giant leather sofa. The QI building is beautiful. We enjoyed a massage and deluxe facial. The kids loved the pools and spa and we loved watching them from the bistro. So much to see and do and all in walking distance! We had a great exchange and would definitely recommend this wonderful stay to everyone.
We had a fantastic weekend exchange at Leah's cottage. The 2 bedroom cottage was very well located, only 5 minutes away from the center of town yet far enough away to see thousands of stars in the sky at night. The cottage was very clean & they were nice enough to build a fire in the fireplace ready to go. We were awoken each morning to bright coloured birds 10 meters away from us next to the quiet pond. There are over 30 wineries within 40 mins drive of the cottage as well as apple & strawberry picking when in season. This is one house swap we would happily do again & again.
Our entire family had a wonderful experience. The apartment was exactly as advertised when we arrived. This place has so much room and awesome views of the Gold Coast. Further, both Beth and Chris were incredibly responsive to our inquires before and during the exchange. They are such wonderful people. Lastly, our house was treated with respect and was very clean upon our return. Our family is still talking about our memorable exchange. Thank you Beth and Chris.
We had an amazing stay at Rak & Jody's house over the summer of 2014. The house is beautifully kept and has plenty of space as well as being in a very nice area right across the harbour from San Francisco. Rak and Jody were easy to communicate with before and during our exchange and are a truly lovely family. The neighbours were very friendly & helpful, even helping to organise babysitting of our 3 year old son for 2 evenings. There is a weekday commuter ferry to San Francisco within a 2 minute walk of the house however we found hiring a car was the best way to get everywhere we wanted to go. The home is within easy driving distance to the Napa & Sonoma wine regions as well as San Francisco's beaches, park & the zoo. There are so many famous attractions including the cable cars, Fisherman's wharf, Lombard street, AT&T park & Alcatraz prison all easily accessible by ferry. Upon returning home we found our house to be very clean & well maintained. We would gladly swap with Rak & Jody again and we would recommend them to anyone interested in a future swap. Rak & Jody thanks again for making our San Francisco dreams come true. We wish you all the best in the future.
