"Our first break away this year, as lockdown started to ease, and it couldn't have been better! The flat in Swanage is newly refurbished, light, bright and airy, spacious for two people, very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could need, and Sebastian's art works to admire on the walls! The sea and beach view from the huge bay window is amazing, and when you can tear yourself away the beach is just steps away, with a great cafe at the other end - just enough of a walk to work up an appetite for breakfast or a thirst for a late afternoon drink! The weather was fantastic for April, so we fully appreciated the location. Swanage has a range of interesting shops and galleries to browse, but feels quite a compact town so you can easily walk straight into beautiful, rural areas along the coast path.
Sebastian was a great host - communication was easy and we were able to meet briefly on our arrival in Swanage. He and Lisa took great care of our cottage and cats and left everything very clean and tidy. A fantastic home swap!"

Highlight from the home swap:
- Super newly refurbished apartment by the beach!
