Home swap trip report: the best time in Australia

Guardian Home Exchange in Australia“We had a one month home swap with Viki and Dave and it was incredible! The house is beautiful and in a brilliant location – within an easy drive of a huge amount of varied beaches (each one more stunning than the last). The pool in the garden is beautiful, but with all of the incredible beaches so close by, we didn’t use it much. There were lots of shops, supermarkets and coffee shops nearby. I really can’t recommend Viki and Dave’s home/location enough – it was a genuine life-highlight for us (it was that incredible!). They kindly allowed us to use their car which helped hugely for exploring the area. Oh and there were also lots of kangaroos nearby. We’ll never forget the trip.”  – Monica & Freddie
