Arrange a house swap with the owner of one of these villas or cottages and get peace of mind about own place while away on holiday.
The growing numbers of holiday rentals worldwide means there are lots of options for a month’s house swap with an owner on the other side of the world. Arrange a holiday of a lifetime in Sydney, enjoying the beaches, sun and surf. Or spend a month in Cape Town with visits to Table Mountain and long drives along the southern wine route.
Holiday home swaps means your property won’t be standing empty at home. You’ll spend less and have time to break from the old routine. Plus you’ll experience a new country holiday accommodation that’s a real home from home.
