We have just completed our 4th swap and had a great time at Newlands Arm on the Gippsland lakes. A great spot very quiet which is what we are used to. We are selling our property and down sizing so will not be swapping until all is complete. This is the best thing we ever did in signing up on your site it is so easy to arrange a hoilday. Thank you. Geoff & Beverley
We recently swapped with a family in Brisbane and stayed in their beautiful Queenslander. We had a great time exploring the sights and the beaches, and our kids loved the Wii. It was great having all the conveniences of a house available and being able to relax in nice surroundings at night. It certainly beats boring hotel rooms or units and all that for free! We also enjoyed looking after our guest family's pets and knowing that our own pet was well cared for. We swapped cars as well which made it even more convenient. We also appreciated the insider's tips for shops, restaurants and things to do that our host family left for us. We are hooked and have already organised our next swap for January. Go house swapping!

Hi, I had a good house swap myself. I thought as an openly gay-lesbian I might have to contact 'Pink Sofa' to do an all lesbian house swap but no, there are tolerant people out there. So I successfully swapped with a non gay couple from Brunswick, Melbourne. Their house was well presented, like mine & they left my house as they found it - very clean & cozy & I left their house as they had left it also - very successful. Its nice to know there are tolerant people in Aussie House Swap who do not dislike lesbians. Thanks to that young, professional working couple. Val Threlfall
Have had lots of enquiries from New Zealand for our apartment at Mooloolaba - more than we can handle! Last October we did a 3 week house swap with a couple at Lake Taupo- it went very well. Very pleased with Aussie House Swap. Geoff
We have just completed a house swap with a lovely couple from Murpy's Creek near Toowoomba QLD. The house was a wonderful bushland retreat and still close to amenities. There is plenty to see an do in the area but my favourite was a visit to the Laidley Valley and Mulgowie Pub. Will be rejoining for another year as it looks like we have a house swap organised for sept/oct in SA. Rhonda and Max
The House swap site was a great success for us. We had many offers and the 2 we chose were just wonderful. Best holidays we have ever had and we discovered what fantastic people are involved in house swapping. We certainly will be doing it again. I was also impressed with the administrative side of the House Swap site. There are helpful tips, a regular newsletter, ongoing efforts to improve the site and members are kept informed of changes and invited to offer opinions which I really appreciate. Best wishes to all those at Aussie House Swap and happy holidaying in 2010. Regards, Margaret
We have had 12 months on Aussie House swap and had a total of 3 swaps. two were weekend breaks in Sydney with just the 2 of us and another was a 2 week vacation to Victoria with our whole family. In Victoria we stayed within walking distance to the beach with the Great Ocean rd scenic sites an easy drive away. We have had success each time and really enjoyed the excitement of staying somewhere different to the normal hotel. The best part has been the savings in accom costs, we worked out that for the same size house and the 6 of us in January we probably saved $5000 -$6000 in rental costs for a similiar holiday house in the same location. This is what makes it worthwhile, I think house swapping is a fabulous idea and would recommend it to anyone wanting to travel. Regards, Claire and Mark
I had yet again another successful house swap/exchange. This time 3 weeks in Bicton, Perth, 10 minutes from colourful Freemantle. Wow! What a Buzz coming from a country coastal town of Narooma, NSW. I mingled most days amongst 1,000s of people and loved the multicultural environment. Great. I would recommend Aussie House swap to all people interested in this innovative idea. The Bicton couple were just great. Val
Nick and team, just finished my first houseswap at the easter school holidays in brisbane and it was huge success. Thank you so much for this great site that has shown me how to have more holidays! keep up the great work! Rebecca

I finally convinced my husband Terry to do a house swap, he was not at all keen. We researched various house swap sites on the Internet and finally settled on Aussie House Swap, as we wanted to stay close to home. Being a family of 5 it would never have been possible for us to have a three week holiday at Christmas /New Years without doing a house swap. We saved so much money, which made our holiday so much better. We swapped with a lovely family from Christchurch NZ, we exchanged lots of emails and a few weeks before the swap talked on the phone. We were very nervous and didn't know quiet what to expect, but thankfully everything worked out very well. Our house, cat and car were all looked after, the house was left exactly how we had left it, neat, clean and tidy. Having a car at the airport waiting for us was such a bonus. We are currently making plans for our second house swap and cannot wait! Lorraine
We did a house swap in January this year. It was a great experience and we would love to do it again. The kids loved playing with all the toys, everyone loved the pool, and the local knowledge and tips were great. We went to Sydney and our house swap family came to Brisbane. Esa
We did our first (and only) house swap in December 2009/January 2010 with a lovely family from Melbourne. We found that travelling with a 3 and 2 year old having a house was just so much better than being cooped up in a hotel. We stayed on a property that was semi-rural and our children loved the pet sheep and looking after the guinea pigs and pet cat. Also there were horses in the paddock next door so we would feed them apples and carrots daily. We had the best family holiday yet and the children still talk about the guinea pig house and would actually like to live there. The family we swapped with were lovely and they left my house in immaculate order - the lady actually sorted out my linen cupboard for me. It was a wonderful experience and we are absolutely keen to do it again. Petra and Stephen (TAS)
We listed our motorhome for a swap and had a great holiday. We had 10 days in QLD in August & the swap people come to NZ to use our van in November. It is a wonderful idea. We've had several other inquiries. We will certainly use this site again in the future. Regards Sue
Hi Guys, we have just got back from our first house swap, What can I say it has been the best experience we have had in years. we are from Wodonga and we swapped with people from Tintenbar. Everything went perfect, There home was just great. And they loved ours just as much. The money we saved on accommodation gave us the chance to go to Movie World and eat out more.The kids just loved the holiday we had which was for two weeks. The other people were so easy to get along with nothing was a problem to them, we even bought our dog along. We have our next swap already to go, we are off to Port Stephens next school holidays. Thanks Aussie House Swap for making holidays happen. Regards, Andrew
We would like to thank the Aussie House Swap team for making it possible for us to have had seven wonderful holidays in three states of Australia, with swaps in Holland, Germany and the Bahamas coming up. All our swaps have been completely successful; the added bonus being that we have become good friends with our swappers and have done repeat swaps. Our friends are quite envious and have asked us for the name of the site. We are not surprised that your membership is growing so quickly. All the best for the festive and holiday season and we look forward to rejoining asap. Carole and Bill
Hello We have just come back from 10 days on a house swap in inner city Sydney. It was fantastic! I really like that moment when you open the door to your swap partner's house and surprise! We found we were perfectly matched for house standard, level of cleanliness, even linen and brand of kitchen appliances. We really felt at home there, and it was good to know our swap partner was in our home at the same time hopefully feeling welcome too. Our days of hotels are over. Spending accommodation $ on great food and adventures instead is a lot more enjoyable. One of the best parts of house swapping is coming home to a clean, tidy house with fresh flowers and a thank you note on the table : D Tracey
Hi Nick and the team. Happy New Year! I just wanted to say a big 'Thank You' for setting up and running Aussie House Swap so well - it offers such a great service. We have just completed our first swap and went on holiday to the South Coast of NSW. We had a great time relaxing and exploring the coast and our swap partner really enjoyed being in Sydney for a week - she went to a heap of museums, galleries and markets. I'm so pleased with all the money we saved by doing a swap....we're getting married in March so every cent counts! I definitely hope to carry on swapping in the future. Thanks again for everything and I'm telling all my friends about you, Claire (Randwick, Sydney)
Hi. Just wanted to let other people know of the fantastic benefits of Aussie House Swap. As a family we swapped the ocean for the snow. We stayed on a sheep farm near Mt. Selwyn. Our family experienced not only a great skiing holiday, but life on a working farm. Our hosts were very accommodating & made us feel very welcome. Now their family are looking forward to a holiday by the sea in March 2011. Aussie House Swap is really good concept, not only do you save money, but you get to meet other like minded people. Helen (Port Stephens, NSW)
Dear Aussie House Swap, my husband is 'over the moon' with our first (non-synchronised) house swap finally negotiated! We have a stunning view over a beach on NSW's sth coast, a beautifully maintained and attractive home and everything went smoothly. So thank you for making this wonderful idea possible. Noelene & John (Perth, WA)
