Being able to stay in a home that's safe and suitable for young children is a major bonus of swapping homes for families. It sure beats spending a week with children in a typical hotel room!
If you have a young family, it's very useful to include information in your home exchange listing on what you can offer in your home plus ideas for local outings (you will, of course, be able to expand on this, asking and answering questions, once in correspondence with potential home swap partners).
The lovely Victorian family home pictured above is walking distance to Edinburgh city centre. The member has given very detailed information (plus many more photos) in her listing, both on the family's home and the local area, including:
'If you are bringing children, we have an abundance of indoor and outdoor games you can use; we also have bikes, highchair, cot, etc. Let us know if there is anything else we can source for you! ... We would be delighted to recommend our favourite places to eat, visit, and can especially recommend things to do for families. We can also put you in touch with a couple of local babysitters we use.'
