The support from the IVHE team was superb.
Our experience was - simple and hassle-free : almost as if we had been lent the property by an old friend.

We couldn't do this without your support - your geneorsity really does change lives!THANK YOU.
You will love to home swap with IVHE. Join International Vacation Home Exchange
Perth is the sunny capital of Western Australia, averaging eight hours of sunshine a day. In the winter months from June to August, the climate is mild and balmy, as opposed to warm and warmer in the summer. Combine pleasant winter temps with bright blue skies, the clean blue Indian Ocean, white sandy beaches, and all the attractions of a large metropolitan city, and it’s easy to see why holiday makers are drawn to Perth and the western side of the country.
Your IVHE home exchange here is a new property in BurnsBeach, a beautiful beachside community in the northern suburbs of Perth. It is surrounded by stylish homes and yards and attractive parks. Shopping, dining and entertainment facilities are only minutes away.
For excursion trips, Perth is an obvious choice. About 20 miles away, Perth offers Western Australia’s major art galleries, museums, ballet, opera and symphony. And some pretty rockin’ clubs and bars as well. Plus there are parks, botanical gardens and the Perth Zoo for kids of all ages. Retail shopping in Perth runs the gamut from trendy shops along three pedestrian malls in the heart of the city to factory outlets and malls in the suburbs.
During your home swap visiting Fremantle, a suburban port town 14 driving miles south of Perth, is another fun excursion. Among other things, the town offers two markets popular with both tourists and locals. One is The Yard, where you’ll find an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables in colorful, fragrant displays. The second is the historic Hall with more than 150 shops. Here merchants and artisans sell everything from the mundane to the unique, including handcrafted artwork, jewelry and clothing. Buskers add to the fun of shopping, or just sightseeing, at The Fremantle Markets.
Nine miles to the northeast of Perth is the suburb or Guildford in the heart of the fertile SwanValley. You can take a circular drive through the Valley and tour vineyards and wineries, stop for lunch at a variety of eateries and specialty food shops, browse through antique shops in Guildford, or pick up locally-grown seasonal fruits and vegetables at roadside produce stands to take back to your IVHE home in Burns Beach.
Fitted out with new, luxurious furniture, modern appliances and all the conveniences you would want, your BurnsBeach house is a great place to come home to. It is air conditioned throughout and equipped with high-speed internet access, wifi, big-screen TV, a variety of home entertainment electronics, a security system, washing machine and clothes dryer.
The house is open and spacious, offering easy access and maneuverability for guests using wheelchairs or walkers.
In keeping with the outdoors lifestyle of West Australians, there is a grill in the garden with lovely outdoor furniture – perfect for dining or entertaining al fresco.
The owner of this home swap property is interested in direct swaps for a minimum of seven days and is open to offers at any destination.

The IVHE team was great throughout the process and addressed all of my questions/concerns.
Overall my experience with my first trade was positive and it was a beautiful property. More than comfortable, nicely furnished, and well-kept.
The description and photos were accurate, and my family very much enjoyed their stay, making use of the kitchen, grill, and living areas. The kitchen was especially well-stocked. The pool was small but adequate, with a nice deck and great view, as described.
Communication with the owners was fine. There was a miscommunication with respect to the number of guests and a bit of confusion as to another guest that was staying in another part of the house. This was resolved to our satisfaction though, by the property manager.
If I were to travel to the island, I would stay at the propery again.
