  1. They are all in NY or Calif.! I obviously don’t stand a chance of exchanging my home in South Carolina, so why should I even consider joining your org?

    • Hi Charles & Patti,
      I hope you see this message. Not everyone wants to go to NY or Calif. Many members want to visit near their friends or relatives or are open to any place with a pleasant place to stay. Any location can be interesting because it is different from home. In your listing tell members what is nice, fun, or different about your area. What do you enjoy about where you live? We have enjoyed 56 home exchanges and have never done one in New York. In fact, we have never been to NYC. We have exchanged to South Carolina and had a wonderful time. It was the first time we had visited in the South. We enjoyed our first opportunity to eat southern foods and were fascinated by the amount of space on the grocery shelf for grits!


  2. this is why we do not post our home.

    People who want NYC, NYC, NYC.

    Im surprised you posted this info.

  3. My wife and I have been members of your organisation in the past, however we let it lapse when health problems curtailed our travelling, however we are contemplating re-joining in the near future.
    However, the main purpose of writing at this stage is that I notice you have a program now for RV exchanges.
    I write a weekly caravan/RV column in the States biggest circulating newspaper and thought details of this program may be of interest to readers. If you are interested, please email me details of how it works and some of the pluses for it and probably some experiences for members may have had, particularly Australian exchanges.

  4. I’ve got a 5 Bedroom home with a big kitchen; lounge; TV room; Dining room adjoining extra visitors lounge.

    Its fairly a new house that we built ourselves. It is a mortgage free home. It is located in a nearby river and encamped by sprawling trees and lushy environment accommodating a family of matured disposition.

    Most families enjoy taking walks especially in the mornings and afternoons. This area is blend of two settings that reflect both surburbia and village but still remains untainted by the rush hour of modern society.

    I’d therefore want to exchange my home especially in 2016 as I’d like to move to Canada for a year on a sabbatical without paying mortgage or rent. The exchanging family will benefit the same as the house is not owing.

    As a South African; I’d like to indicate to the exchanging famikibthat I am from a family if 5: Me and my wife and three kids aged 7, 10and 14.

    Kindly advise…!
