Best location: home swap staycation in central London

Marylebone Home Exchange
Best location: Julia and David's home is in central London's Marylebone

"We had such a wonderful home exchange in Julia and David's central London apartment. We absolutely loved the flat and the location, it really was the best location ever - smack bang in Marylebone really would be hard to find a better place to stay!

Julia was in touch throughout and gave tons of local tips and great advice. Her flat was immaculate and so was ours when she and her hubby left it.

Our neighbours fell in love with them, as did our cats, who were very well cared for.

Staying in such a lovely central London location for free meant that we had lots of spare money to spend on restaurants, river boat trips, etc - and we made full use of this!

We are very lucky people to have had this opportunity. Thank you so much to Julia and David for a wonderful swap in London!"

- Diana & Alexander (Loch Long, Scotland)

Highlight from the home exchange:

  1. Our home swap partners, Julie and David, were extremely lovely
  2. Unbeatable location and such a stylish clean, quiet and comfortable apartment
  3. London ...of course!

Julia & David: 

We are a British (English & Scottish) married couple. For UK and European city short trips/weekends we often travel as a couple although it would be ideal if we could arrange an occasional swap that accommodated the in-laws and both kids, particularly to Sydney where we have family.
