Let's start 2017 by celebrating all the great home exchange experiences our community has enjoyed this past year, 2016. Here are just a few of our favourites that we want to share with you!
At the start of the year Pere from Barcelona enjoyed their best stay at MyTwinPlace in the home of Christine in Marrakesh“The Riad is extraordinary. With a terrace to eat and sunbathe. The truth is it took us by surprise, the photos don’t do it justice. The relationship with the lady in charge of handing over the keys was fabulous, she helped us at all times with anything we needed. I highly recommend it. The best stay with MyTwinPlace to date!”
Pal from Romania had a great time in Southern Italy when he stayed at Silvestro’s beautiful Trulli
"Our experience was great, Silvestro was kind to show us around the house and recommend what to visit in the region. I recommend this place for anyone who loves to stay in a beautiful village near Fasano in a traditional Trulli.I love the community at MyTwinPlace and love that there is a professional team behind it, who is always ready to help."
Nair was met with a welcoming hospitality at Kibibi’s Bed and Breakfast in New York…
"The best thing was the hospitality of our host. We had a great time in Kibibi's place. It's a cozy B&B, they're very friendly and always give something for breakfast. And it's well communicated (30 min to Manhattan center)."
…which allowed Kibibi to stay in the home of one of our superhosts, Maria, in Barcelona!
“My husband and I had a wonderful stay with Maria. It was like visiting family. Maria's place is beautiful, clean, and has a warm feeling. We especially loved the balcony. The house is close to all of the action and it was easy for us to travel where ever we needed to go. Most of all we enjoyed Maria's company and conversation. She was also a wealth of information and able to tell us all about Barcelona. It was like having our own personal tour guide. We hope to see Maria again soon!”
And not forgetting Carlos’ time at Luba’s apartment in Amsterdam
“The house was so clean, big and Luba even left us bikes to explore the city. Luba is an amazing person and she also surprised us with breakfast. I’d highly recommend this place.”
Our member Pat treated her godson to a stay at Susana’s place in Altafulla, Spain
"My godmother Pat has given me her MyTwinPlace travel points so we can enjoy a trip with my wife and our two kids! We were lucky that our hosts, Susana and Andy, live in Barcelona like us, and we could meet some days before to talk and get to know each other better. They also shared with us some house details, directions, and their personal recommendations: restaurants, bars, sights in Altafulla. I recommend it all! Many thank you very much, once again, to my godmother Pat, and to Susana and Andy!"
And finally, Stefan from Dundee, Scotland, had the unique experience in Torsten’s Tipi
“Torsten is an amazing guy, I highly recommend anyone reading this to visit!!! If you don't you are missing out, 1 of the best experiences I have had in Scotland and I am Scottish... Torsten was super welcoming and very helpful throughout the stay, he makes a huge effort to make guests experience 1 to be remembered. Thanks for everything, hope to be back again.”
Thank you to all our members for sharing your experiences traveling and hosting all over the world. You make the MyTwinPlace experience possible. Happy New Year!
