Have you ever done a House exchange for Vacation?

Hello my Blogging friends! Have any of you ever done a Vacation where you exchange your home with someone from another part of the World? My Sweetie and I have registered with a few Web sites that offer this service of connecting vacationers with each other to exchange your homes and vehicles as well in some situations.
It seems to be a wonderful way to explore the World while not having the expense of Hotels or   B & B's.
Our friends have done an exchange to the Netherlands and are looking forward to going again in 2013. 
Since we are retiring in 2013 we have decided to give this option a try so we can spread our vacation funds farther each year and see how many areas on the map we can explore.
I will keep you posted on how we make out! 

Have a wonderful week ahead!




  1. Hi Wanda,

    No I have not ever done a house exchange but think it would be such a great idea.
    Look forward to hearing how your house swap goes.

    Happy new week

  2. Never done anything like that before but it sounds exciting! Have fun!


  3. I've heard of them, but I've never done's a fabulous idea! I'm also so excited for you to go see John Edwards! Are you on fb? I have a new facebook page, which is about'd love it...I post every day!!!
    Sending (((hugs))) your way,

  4. We have actually thought about it! Since the new adventures with the lake house we are hoping to exchange next year with some beach owners...give them a chance to experience a lake house and we get to experience the beach for a litte while.

    Your home is so lovely...certainly your occupants would be happy to stay there!

  5. It sounds like such a great idea Wanda. I can't wait to hear how you like it when you do get to try it.

    I wonder who in the world would want to come to a town of 450 people for a vacation though (chuckle) and have to feed the horses, dog, cats and keep the garden watered : ) Now that would be a vacation wouldn't it?

    I think it is such a neat opportunity for those who live in areas where people love to travel though. I always think of the movie The Holiday. I would love to stay in that little English cottage!
    I hope all is wonderful with you Wanda.
    Sending many hugs...
