Beaches and great vegan food!!

Beaches and great vegan food!!

We both love the sun, beaches and great food. Kim is passionate about cooking, working around everyone's different tastes is challenging and fun for her to have them enjoy a great vegan meal. We are Canadians from western Canada and did our first home exchange fall of 2012 in central Florida, and able to drive virtually all over Florida to many of the amazing beaches. We fell so fast and hard for Florida, we bought a condo in Cocoa Beach and spent our first winter there 2012/13! We so enjoy fine dining and fine wine with friends and family. We get married on Cocoa Beach April 19, 2014!!!! :)

We had a fun and seamless exchange with Ken and Kim. We visited Cocoa Beach this past December and they visited Las Vegas in May. Ken and Kim's Cocoa Beach condo is in a great location and they were gracious in leaving a vehicle for us at the Orlando airport. We skyped ahead of time which led to an even easier exchange and when the time came for them to visit Vegas, they treated our home and vehicle impeccably. Thanks for a great exchange!

What we said about Katie's house:

We had a wonderful exchange in May/14 10 days which included Memorial Day celebrations, to Katie and Kevin's home in Henderson, Nevada. Amazing gated location 15 minutes to the Las Vegas strip. Also under an hour away we rented a boat on Lake Mead and got to get right up close to Hoover Dam with the boat. They left us a wonderful SUV at the airport, and their home was a large very comfortable family home, with an amazing private pool and hot tub. Katie and Kevin kept in close contact for any questions or concerns we had. They enjoyed our Cocoa Beach, FL condo for 10 days over Christmas, and had use of our SUV, treated both with great care. Thank you Katie and Kevin, hope we can do this again!

Kim and Ken's condo was spacious and well situated. We enjoyed the sun, the private beach and swimming pool. This is a nice place to stay and Cocoa beach is a family place, calm and always sunny! Close to Cape Canaveral, we even saw a rocket launch!

Ken and Kim
What we said about Isabelle et Yannick's house:

Yannick and Isabelle's home was spacious and very comfortable and included a beautiful pool! They were great at communicating to make our stay super enjoyable, we felt totally at home there. The location served great for relaxing and was only 2 blocks to the train station to take the train all over Europe, we arrived via train and left via train, great way to travel. Thank you Yannick and Isabelle!!

We had such a great time at Ken and Kims unit, we traveled with kids and there is so much to see and do right at Cocoa beach plus orlando and cape canaveral nearby, it was a great experience, the condo is huge and super well located. Having them over in our place was also great they are super nice people, thanks and lets do i again! Dan

Ken and Kim
What we said about Dan's house:

Daniel was very kind and communicative with us during our stay in Puerto Aventuras, Mayan Riviera, Mexico in Jan. We enjoyed this secure community immensely with shops, restaurants, resorts and beaches all within walking distance or via Daniel's golf cart he shared for a couple days. An incredible adventure tour close by was Punta Venado Adventures, where we went snorkeling, waverunning, horseback riding and swam in a ceynote. Daniel was in our home in Cocoa Beach in October with family, treating our home and vehicle with much respect, it was an awesome exchange.

Lauren from Laguna Niguel said

We truly loved our stay at Ken and Kim's Cocoa Beach retreat! The location can't be beat. Lots of space and so comfortable. We had never been to Florida and now it's one of our favorite places to vacation. Ken and Kim were perfect guests here in California. They left the place spotless! I would love to do another exchange with them. :)

Ken and Kim
What we said about Lauren's house:

We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed Laguna Beach, how beautiful the home and area was, and how wonderful Lauren's hospitality was. She was easy to communicate with, her SUV was awesome to use. THANK YOU Lauren, would be amazing to do another exchange with you, any time you want.

Chimene & Ian from United States (USA) said

Kim and Kens place was great, we were close to the grocery store, dollar store and restaurants such as Madd Jacks, (great BBQ :-). We walked to the downtown area where we had coffee and awesome sweet snacks at "Java and Juice". The complex is right on the beach and Kim has all kinds of boogie boards, flippers chairs, towels, pool noodles and blankets to use so no need to buy any of them. We were there over the 4th of July and watched a rocket launch as well the fireworks on the beach… (other people had to pay $20.00 for parking while we just walked right out the door and onto the beach. Inside, the 2 bedrooms have comfy king size beds, (well actually our party of 5 didn’t try out the 3rd Queen bedroom but i can only imagine it was just as nice as the other two as we had no complaints. You don’t see space in condos these days like you see in Kims place, you will be quite impressed if you do an exchange there. Her pictures aren’t quite up to date which is a good thing as it gives more of a wow factor when you arrive. There were 5 in our party and we all had lots of room while we were chilling. We also exchanged vehicles which was a bonus as her SUV easily fit 5 people comfortable and could actually seat 7. The wrap around patio is great for playing a game of dominos (which we had many long nights of :-) and also for just relaxing on the comfy padded loungers. If you are considering a visit to Orlando, make this place your first inquiry… nice beach, warm pool, lots of sun and close to the beer, i mean wine, I mean restaurants yeah thats it… restaurants. And also close to the Pier, which has good beer, i mean wine, i mean food, yeah thats it… good food :-) Thank you Kim and Ken we hope you enjoyed our homes as well. Chimene and Ian

What we said about Chimene & Ian's house:

We were very fortunate to find this exchange with Ian and Chimene in Peachland. They were very attentive in communication before and during our stay. It was very peaceful with the stunning view of Okanagan Lake and Rattlesnake Island as you see in the pictures we've posted. If you are looking to either enjoy the community of Peachland with lovely restaurants (Gasthaus been to more than once), and beach; or the short commute to Kelowna with unlimited activities to do, this is the perfect place to call home for a vacation or long term exchange. The condo was more than adequately equipped with everything a person needs for cooking. The furnishings and finished quality of the home was exceptional. Neighbors were very friendly who we shared wine with on more than one occasion. Thank you Ian and Chimene for being very flexible (and the lovely gift basket) and easy to work with on this exchange, hope we can do it again one day soon. :)
