Yes, from Colorado to Texas. Our home away from home was wonderful. Their home was much fancier than ours but they said they enjoyed it just the same which made us feel great. As soon as we drove up into the driveway of their home, I was in awe. It was a three story multimillion dollar house. Our home on the other hand is a one story house by the lake. Not shabby by any means but definitely not a mansion. Neither of us had discussed the aesthetics of the houses beforehand, only the location. We wanted to get away from the Texas heat and they wanted to get away from the frigid cold so we both got what we wanted. We also left photos of our vacation plus a basket of wines and cheeses as a thank you for the use of their house. It's one of the best vacations I've ever experienced and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Brandi Nash Hicks, we have a lovely home in Redington Beach, Fl on the intracoastal waterway that we are hoping to exchange. I winter trip to mountains would be a wonderful change. Keep us in mind! Currently finishing a remodeling project but then we hope to exchange within the US and abroad, so those of you looking for a fabulous Florida getaway on the water with a swimming pool and stand up paddle boards (and kid friendly), we should be ready later this year.

I could not do it, either. I'd need to scrub the place I was visiting thoroughly before using it and then do the same with my home, both before I left and after I got back. On top of that, I am a vegetarian and do not trust other people when it comes to food.
