Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

See below - the tick boxes for completing this part of the web site are all yes/no, but we can be flexible. We'd prefer non smokers, without pets but this is negotiable. We are willing to look after pets, but, during a longer exchange we may spend a few days away so there needs to be a backup plan. Our children are long gone so there are few toys and the house is not set up in a particularly child friendly way. However if families can cope with that they are welcome.
