What’s the formula for a great home exchange?

Take one amazing host who’s warm, welcoming and helpful. Add in a lovely home to relax in and enjoy. Finally, mix with the perfect guest who seeks the local experience and treats your home as they do their own.

Macarena’s experience perfectly fits this formula as she tried out MyTwinPlace for the first time.

Macarena and her partner David stayed in Silvia’s two homes in Portugal. One in Coimbra and the other in Lisbon.

The guests Macarena and David

They love to travel, meet new people, enjoy the great outdoors, reading and trying the local cuisine!

Being open to new destinations is by far the best way to travel. And Macarena has a great and innovative idea to surprise her partner David. She picks the destination so he travels “blind”!

Once you arrive at your destination you want to make the most your visit. There is no denying that Macarena did exactly that. Apparently she even taught her host where to go in their own town.

“They are tremendous good fun to have around - they covered the ground so well, they even taught us where to go in our own town! Welcome back any time!”

+ The Host Silvia

Silvia is a great host with two beautiful homes in Portugal. Macarena’s review speaks volumes:

“Very communicative, excellent, kind, helpful, accommodating, great, 10 out of 10!!!!”
