“Having met Annelies, I can only say I want to be more like her combination of head (organized, efficient, fair) and heart (warm, relaxed, kind). She is also an excellent communicator. She and her family are avid travelers who have house exchanging down to a lovely science. Arriving at their airy, light-filled, sparkling, very spacious and beautifully modern home, we found superb written instructions and a welcome package. We enjoyed the architectural details and the family’s art throughout the house. Their large yard has a pool plus a high green privacy hedge. Our pleasant morning walk to the village of Zutendaal for groceries and the bakery took us past well-tended homes, ducks and horse pastures. We loved nearby Maastricht, a lively historic university town of cobbled streets, art studios, restaurants, outdoor cafes, great shopping and a river walk. Equally good was the close town of Valkenburg, especially St. Gerlachkerk, the surrounding art-filled park and historic bistro. It was an easy drive to Germany for a day in Cologne. We were happy to wander through Brussels and also the university town of Ghent. There was more to see than we had time to explore! The quality and location of the Franck home makes for a wonderful vacation. Annelies’s written booklets on the house functions and the points of interest in the area are admirably complete including the tip for the fun Railbikes she recommended! Returning to our home, we found Annelies, Bert and Bodine left our house completely clean and in perfect order. We thank them also for extra care for our plants and pool. Overall, the experience of exchanging with them was excellent and has left a lovely glow. We are so glad to have met them! ”

“El intercambio ha sido un éxito. Frank y Sophie son muy amables y respetuosos con nuestra casa. Antes de partir hemos estado en contacto con Whatsapp y hemos intercambiado fotos y recomendaciones durante la estancia. La casa de Frank y Sophie es grande y espaciosa con un jardín enorme en un tranquilo vecindario. Al volver a nuestra casa Frank y Sophie nos prepararon una cena exquisita y pasamos una cena muy entretenida. Asi que recomendamos este intercambio con esta familia y su casa sin duda alguna. Nuestra casa estaba limpia y cuidada cuando volvimos. Hasta pronto! Lluís y familia.”
“Exchanging homes with Victoria and JD was an absolute joy. Communication was always very pleasant and went smooth as well as quick. We (family with 1 teenage daughter) met each other briefly at the airport which confirmed our expectations that this is a reliable, professional and very gracious couple. Their home in Venice, Florida is lovely. clean and beautifully decorated. We fondly remember enjoying our morning coffee or evening wine around the pool. Victoria left us some delicious goodies to enjoy and handy instructions and tips about the area. She put us in touch with their friends, which was very enjoyable. Needless to say, we enjoyed every single day of our 2 week exchange in April/May 2019 with Victoria and JD from Venice, Florida! The location of their home is a good base to discover the Gulf coast of Florida, the nearby cities of Sarasota and Tampa, museums such as the Ringling and Ford and Edison winter estates as well as some national parks as the Oscar Scherer (great for canoeing), the Myakka River Park and the Babcock Reserve. Of course the countless white beaches are a big part of the attraction. We enjoyed the beaches of Boca Grande Island, Nokomis Beach and Anna Maria Island the best. Upon coming home, we found our own home to be spotless and well restocked beyond necessity. We can thoroughly recommend an exchange with this wonderful and caring couple! Thank you Victoria and JD for the opportunity to stay in your lovely home. ”
