Fish and chips by the seaside? London to Brighton home swap

FISH AND CHIPS on Brighton PierGuardian Home Exchange member, Kate, said of her family’s home swap between their home in London and Anne-Marie and Gill’s home in Brighton:

“We enjoyed a fabulous long weekend at Anne-Marie and Gill’s cosy home. Our hosts were very thoughtful, providing lots of handy guides and suggestions for our stay, from the best pubs and fish and chip shops, to where to go for country walks, and even helped us to arrange a babysitter so we could enjoy a night out. The house is in a great location, close to the town centre and seafront, as well as local parks. Highly recommended.”   Kate (Crouch End, London)

Home swap trip report in Port Vendres, France

Guardian Home Exchange in France“We swapped homes from 9th Sept to 9th Oct 2015. The home was very comfortable and well equipped with fantastic views out over the Med from both the upstairs and downstairs patios. We loved the many hikes/walks in the area plus of course the delicious food available in the local restaurants and cafes. Port Vendres plus nearby Collioure and Banyuls sur mer are charming and beautiful. We also enjoyed venturing into the nearby mountains for trips to abbeys, thermal baths, and rivers for kayaking. We found the local people very friendly and helpful even though our knowledge of the French language was very minimal. Ronny and Brian were great in answering any questions we had. We highly recommend this home swap!”   – Jerry & Maralyn

Highlights of the swap:
  1. Awesome views out over the Med
  2. Lots of nearby walks/hikes
  3. Short drive to the mountains

Home swap trip report: Wonderful first exchange in Malaga, Spain

Guardian Home Exchange in Spain“We have traveled extensively in southern Europe, the Antipodes, USA and Canada. We are golfers and we love the south of Spain. This was our first home swap and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Being rookies at this home exchange business, Sammy and Susie helped us in every way to set up our home manual / draft agreement (which we did not need nor use) and the communications when we were staying in each others homes were fast, prompt and reassuring. They kindly allowed us to have friends stay with us in their lovely home. Sammy and Susie tell us they enjoyed staying in our home, sailing with some of our friends in the neighbourhood and exploring the summer delights of Victoria and Vancouver Island. Many thanks Sammy and Susie.”  – Nic & Jane

Home swap trip report: the best time in Australia

Guardian Home Exchange in Australia“We had a one month home swap with Viki and Dave and it was incredible! The house is beautiful and in a brilliant location – within an easy drive of a huge amount of varied beaches (each one more stunning than the last). The pool in the garden is beautiful, but with all of the incredible beaches so close by, we didn’t use it much. There were lots of shops, supermarkets and coffee shops nearby. I really can’t recommend Viki and Dave’s home/location enough – it was a genuine life-highlight for us (it was that incredible!). They kindly allowed us to use their car which helped hugely for exploring the area. Oh and there were also lots of kangaroos nearby. We’ll never forget the trip.”  – Monica & Freddie
