Q: We have a beautiful big house in Bali, Indonesia. It has two huge rooms, two bathrooms, a open plan kitchen, living room, dining room, office and TV room. We are looking for possibilities for a year home swap for Bristol , UK. Thank you, J.M.DA:
A: Your house and location sound stunning and I’m sure you would find interest in your home swap offer from UK members.

- Under ‘Search home swaps’, choose from the drop-down options:
- And then, under Regions, choose Avon
You can select city too but you might want to leave your search options open on a first search so that you can scroll through the offers in and near Bristol to find any that look possibilities. Do a second search, choosing ‘Somerset’ as the region as, although most members in Bristol choose to be listed under Avon, some select Somerset.
You can limit your search in a number of ways including by ‘Type of Exchange’. Choosing ‘Long term exchange’ will limit search results to members who are particularly interested in lengthy exchanges.
It can sometimes be difficult finding members in a city/town who are interested in a long-term home exchange whose dates and location requests match what you can offer. If you are unable to find a suitable swap in Bristol for as long as a year, contact members offering shorter periods too as you could either arrange more than one swap to cover the year or arrange one exchange and rent a home for the period not covered. You will see that some members offer their homes for rent as well as exchange (often these are second homes that would otherwise be left empty when the owners aren’t using them and so they may offer reduced rental rates to Home Base Holidays members).
Your attractive offer should attract more people living in Bristol to join too! It’s always a good idea to start looking for an exchange several months before the dates you want to swap as it can, especially with very specific requests, take a little time to find exchange partners and then make your arrangements.
Arrange free holiday accommodation
Rather than booking a hotel or holiday rental, arrange a home exchange through Home Base Holidays and enjoy free accommodation.
