Featured Home Exchange Property #0853: Cayman Islands, Cayman Brac

Two-bedroom luxury oceanfront townhome exchange

Cayman Brac is one of three Caribbean  islands comprising the British Overseas Territory of The Cayman Islands. Cayman Brac is the second largest, located just five miles from Little Cayman and some 75 miles from Grand Cayman.  Miami is 430 miles to the north.

All three islands are coral outcrops surrounded by coral reefs and sheer underwater mountain walls close to shore. Cayman Brac’s waters are warm and crystal clear, allowing some of the best scuba diving, snorkeling and game fishing in the Caribbean.

Landside is all about palm trees, gorgeous beaches, wild parrots and exotic flowers. Coastline trails let you take it all in, plus there are caves to explore along the way as well as a 140-foot high bluff – the highest elevation in the Caymans -- on the east side of the island.

With a population of less than 1,800 on an island of 14 square miles, Cayman Brac’s towns are tiny. You may not find an Ibiza-like club in any of them,  but you will find friendly, laid-back locals who love sharing tales of the island and its history.

Your IVHE island getaway home exchange is part of a small group of townhomes called Kings Point. The owner calls his unit “Paradise Found.” You will undoubtedly agree.  You can enjoy a view of the ocean from each room.  It has two master bedrooms with queen-size beds and ensuite bathrooms on the second floor,  and a  queen sofa bed on the main level in the living room. Six people can sleep comfortably.

A chlorine-free pool is just outside your back door, as well as a hot tub, a gazebo with four large hammocks, and a washing area to clean your diving gear. To cook up all those fish you’ll catch, you have a choice of an outdoor grill  on the deck or a fully-equipped  kithen inside. The kitchen features all modern appliances, granite countertops, and a cupboard stocked with the basics to make delicious meals.

Check out pictures of this gorgeous property, and find out more about it, by clicking the property # above.  Cayman Brac is easy to get to via convenient Cayman Airways and Cayman Express service from Grand Cayman

Featured Home Exchange Property #0971: Spain, Malaga

Five-bedroom home exchange villa on the Costa del Sol.

 Ah, the Costa del Sol. That strip of Spanish Mediterranean that is one of the sunniest and warmest places in Europe. The sea food is primo; the sherry, world class. The sights and sounds are quintessentially Spanish – flamenco guitar and castanets, crowds roaring  “ole” in bullfighting arenas, architectural styles that recall Roman and Arabic heritage, patios and courtyards with lemon trees, flowers and fountains, wrought iron gratings and beautiful glazed tiles. Millions of tourists visit this part of Andalusia every year and love it. You will, too.

 Your vacation home exchange accommodations here is a villa near the coastal resort town of Marbella. It is located in an upscale residential area known as Hacienda Las Chapas. The streets are wide and tree-lined. Some will take you to the popular beaches of Elviria and Cabopino nearby for soaking in the sun or dining at oceanside cafes and restaurants. Puerto Banus, where luxury yachts drop anchor and designer shops thrive, is a 25 minute drive away. Or you can travel a bit further by car or bus tour to visit other famous Andalucian cities such as Granada, Sevilla and Cordoba.

Other attractions in the area include Alcazaba, a palatial fortification in Malaga build in the early 11th century;  Buenavista Palace, an historical  palace that is the present home of the Museo Picasso Malaga (Picasso was born in Malaga); the Cathedral of Malaga, a Renaissance church in the middle of the city;  the Caves of Nerja, a fascinating series of caverns sretching almost three miles (five kms.). Concerts are regularly held in a natural amphitheatere formed by one of the chambers.

Your home swap villa has been dubbed “Las Terrazas” because it is spread over three levels. The central patio is typically Aandalucian with a peacefully splashing fountain. There is a furnished dining terrace overlooking the pool, and a pool terrace with BBQ grill.

The gardens are professionally landscaped on various levels including the terrace with the large salt-water heated swimming pool (charge for heating), a lower garden with fruit trees and a pergola on the side lawn where the table tennis and darts are housed.

The interior is spacious and well appointed, and air conditioned throughout. The living area has a fireplace, piano, satellite TV, hifi, and library. The kitchen is fully equipped. Four of the five bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with their own dressing rooms. There is also a sauna and a cinema room with Bose surround sound. Home security is prvided with a video alarm system connected to local security cars.

The top floor, with stunning views of the sea, houses the master bedroom suite, along with a sun terrace, jacuzzi, snooker table, and table tennis.

This beautiful hacienda is magnifico. Find out more about it by clicking the property # above. And if you are not familiar with the International Vacation Home
