Property features

Who we are

  1. We are Mike and Jane in our early 60s and retired professionals - Mike an accountant and Jane a teacher. We have a home in the idyllic Kwa-Zulu Natal South Coast (South Africa) which we would happily exchange for another anywhere in the world. We can easily manage non-simultaneous exchanges.

    We are well experienced in home exchanges (in excess of 10). We may, sometimes, like to travel with 2 other friends or (adult) children.

    We are keen tennis and bridge players and love to travel. We are also keen gardeners and love to go for long walks or bike rides in the countryside or on the beach - anywhere that is close to nature.

    We have 4 adult children - 2 living in UK ; 1 in Perth (Australia) 1 in Santiago (Chile)
