House swap would be great. We require 3 bedrooms and would like to be in a ski resort or by the beach. Location - Not in Great Britain.
"We would definitely recommend “Close By” - the house is lovely, huge and very well equipped. We had two families sharing it and there was plenty of room."
"The South Devon area and nearby attractions for families were great. We easily filled a week with enjoyable days out."
We had a fantastic time here, coming with our 3 boys between Christmas and the New Year. The house has plenty of space, and has a large kitchen area and a separate living room with TV etc, which is great on rainy days or when people need space. Another couple with a kid came for a few days and it was not crowded at all. You could easily come here with grandparents etc. The house is in a beautiful spot, with sea views, and wonderful unspoilt coastline all around. I imagine it must be fantastic with good Summer weather. We got lucky with some of the weather, and even had a proper day at the beach in late December. It's a special part of the country and as well as great walks there is lots of good sea food to be had if, like us, you like the fruits of the sea. As to the hosts, we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome - a freshly baked and delicious chocolate cake awaited us on arrival, which was a really wonderful touch. Both the owners are really nice, and Katy was extremely responsive and gave us loads of local tips, all of which were winners. She went the extra mile and even arranged a charming babysitter / child minder to enable us to feel like we had a true break.
"We booked the house for my mother’s birthday surprise and we all had a great time and felt comfortable in the cottage"
