Hi there. We had two really good House Swap experiences. We had a 'try out'? with a great family from Cooroy, only a couple of hours '?up the road' from where we live. We also had a more complex and more exciting exchange with an Aussie family who live in Hanoi. We spent our Christmas holidays there and is was a great chance for us to visit an amazing country and it was a chance for the other family to have a Christmas at home with their family. In both cases we found our house just as good as we left it. We didn't have any troubles and it was very easy to organize. Because we have a large family (we have 5 kids) we find that the feature that tells you the size of the party very important. We looked for large families rather than places to visit! Keep up the good work! PS: I just renewed my membership for another 12 months and we already have a another exchange on the pipeline! Jorge
Hi Nick, I live in the UK and would like to thank you so much for my swap listing. It took a while but I have been able to set up 2 swaps and will be coming over to Oz in 6 weeks time for 3 months. I'm sure I'll love it and will swap again in the future, and I'll be sure to list on your site. Many thanks Marje (Newcastle, England)
We've had 2 great houseswaps this year. An interstate one which also included a car swap. We had a great time experiencing two new places and returned to a beautiful clean house! I love the concept, keep up the great work. Leonie (Torquay, VIC)
"I would highly recommend Aussie House Swap. We had the use of a nice flat, suitable for our family, and a car for 3 weeks in Sydney all for free! It's amazing how much we saved. The family who we swapped with (Dave and Desne) couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and I would particularly recommend them to anyone thinking of swapping with them. All in all it was a great experience!" Rory (London, UK)
Hello. Not sure where I can leave feedback on the website, but just wanted to say what a fantastic first house swap my partner and I had with Helen & John from Mandurah in WA. We spent 2 wonderful weeks staying in their lovely home on the canal, it was just like a home away from home, with everything provided and we were very comfortable staying there. It was a bit of a leap of faith, trusting these complete strangers in our home and using our car, and the same for them. It all worked out incredibly well, and we believe we have made some new friends in Helen & John, as there has been much communication leading up to our swap. I am now confident to try another house swap in a different State, but totally fell in love with Mandurah and the easy, laidback lifestyle that exists there. Definitely happy I found this website and have highly recommended it to my friends and family. Kind regards Susan (Tasmania)
Great website, we had one short house swap in August last year with a great family in Tamworth. Will be swapping again, maybe even overseas as we have the travel bug after being in Europe for 4 weeks recently. Ben (Sunnybank Hills, Brisbane)
Thank you Aussie House Swap we had a lovely swap to North Island NZ last Christmas! Liz (Bayside, Brisbane)
I would like to say how much I appreciate being given another free 12 months membership as I have not been successful in getting a swap since joining. This is such a generous gesture and great business ethics. The costs of the yearly subscription is very reasonably priced - why would anyone be using a different provider? Thanks Nick. Robin
Congratulations Aussie House Swaps for providing the opportunity for my wife and I, from Wollongong, to be able to arrange a very successful home swap with a couple from Tewantin near Noosa. The finer details of the swap were arranged through a number of emails and phone calls, and all went according to plan. On arrival, we were greeted with Milk, Bread, and some delightful energy dense chocolates and wine! The house was immaculately presented and the capacity it provided for us to share some quality time with our family (daughter and 2 grandchildren) was much appreciated. Likewise, on our return, our house was well cared for, neat, and very tidy. Your checklist worked a treat, and I wholeheartedly recommend Aussie House Swaps for people wishing to experience staying in another part of the world, using information provided by knowledgeable locals, supported by friendly neighbours. Obviously, it also provides an opportunity to increase your circle of friends. Owen and Sue (Wollongong)
Hi Nick and team, We are Aussie house swap members from Newcastle, NSW. We are a family of 4 (2 gorgeous little boys aged 3 and 5) and we have just returned from the most amazing house swap experience. We have enjoyed a month living in Vancouver, Canada all thanks to your complimentary membership to the international house swap site. Our exchange house was beautiful - spacious, trampoline, treehouse and a garden full of ripe raspberries. We swapped car, guide books, travel advice, kitchen pantries and kept in regular contact while we were away. An amazing experience and one we hope to do again. Very happy customers !! Heidi H (Newcastle NSW)
My family and I are about to jet off to the London for our third house swap, our first was to Hobart at a magical house over looking the Derwent and the second to a wonderful beach house at South Golden Beach near Byron Bay. We had just the best holidays and can't recommend Aussie House Swap enough. We will certainly be arranging more house swaps in the coming months as it is just the best way to travel, the money saved on hire cars and accommodation means you can have longer and better holidays. I would say though that organising an international swap was much harder than the same in Australia, then end result will be the same but the getting there was harder than I thought it would be. Thank you Nick, keep up the good work and we look forward to many more swaps in the future. Mandy, Chris, Grace and Phoebe (Mossman near Port Douglas, Nth Qld)
Just as an aside, we've completed 2 very successful swaps via your site, and have received multiple offers from others which, for one reason or another, wehave been unable to accept. We're swapping again in January, this time with relatives of friends, but would have done so via your website if we hadn't made alternative arrangements. Keith (Noosa Heads, Qld)
Dear Aussie House Swap folks, I wanted to thank you for creating such a wonderful opportunity for people to have an affordable holiday experience. Our family have just completed our first house swap, travelling to WA from the Far North Coast of NSW for our daughters wedding. We chose a home that was similar in standard to our own, and found this is key to having a positive experience. Of course there are so many new and wonderful things to discover in going to a different location and we had such peace of mind knowing that we could use the money we saved by houseswapping, to get around and see so many new and exciting places. We worked out that if we had payed for basic caravan park accommodation as well as hiring a car, it would have coast about $2000-this was spending money for our trip instead! Right now we are planning the next adventure, so thank you, it's a great system and I would highly recommend it to all open-minded and adventurous people. Our philosophy is this: if you hold a place of trust within yourself, you will find that reflected in the people you create to house swap with. Good luck!! Love, Elizabeth (Tweed Coast, NSW)
Hello, Just to say a huge thank you for your valuable website. We have just returned from a three week amazing trip of a lifetime to Italy where we housed swapped with a lovely couple. Our villa in a small town was fabulous and we had such a great time. When we arrived back our home was looked after very well. We would like to say how much we appreciate belonging to your website we have now enjoyed two lovely house swaps and looking forward to many more!! Cheers Fran and Mike (Port Macquarie, NSW)
Hi Nick and the Team, I just want to tell you about our overseas house-swapping experiences. Last year we swapped with a young couple in Amsterdam. They have now migrated to Melbourne and live not far from us so we are able to maintain our friendship. We also swapped with a German couple in a village in Bavaria and spent an all-too-short time in that beautiful part of Germany. Earlier this year, we received an email from the German couple asking if we would like to return to Germany to house-sit for them. This we did, spending six weeks in Bavaria and enjoying trips to nearby countries such as Italy, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. We also facilitated some English conversation classes in our village where we made many friends. So a big " thank you" to you all. Carole and Bill (Port Melbourne)
We had our first house-swap during the past year and it worked out a treat. Although not having met the family, we have kept in touch, especially regarding our respective pets and in times of concern.. ie.flooding, etc. We found we had much in common and do hope to meet one day! Aussie House Swap is a fantastic system and i look forward to rejoining in the not-too-distant future. With thanx & kind regards, Lisa (Yackandandah, VIC)
This is my second year with aussiehouseswap and I have nothing but praise; you provide us with a great, original option to save on hotels while travelling everywhere... and I meet new friends, wonderful people. I have only positive experiences and look forward to more travel this year. Cheerio Danijela
