We had a wonderful time at Amansala, Tumum, Mexico Melissa's little beachfront paradise #372. The rooms were lovely with good views of the ocean and the food at the restaurant was top quality and delicious. Thanks so much for assisting us with this trade exchange. The Deluxe rooms were worth the extra credits.We want to go back next year and should start planning soon!
We returned in mid-June from a fantastic trip to London and Copenhagen. Our girls wanted to prepare the video testimony for you.
It was so nice every night to return to a home. We were able to spread out and relax from the day. Other vacations we have been stuck in small cramped hotel rooms. My husband commented on the trip, "This is the only way we are going to travel from now on!" I agree!

IVHE is a wonderful organisation and has helped us connect with fellow members across the world. My partner and I thoroughly recommend joining IVHE as it is one of the best, most effective exchange websites in existence. Over the years we've tried using other exchange sites but IVHE is consistently the best. Thanks to IVHE we have stayed in wonderful vacation properties all over the world.
Becoming a member of IVHE has really changed the way we travel. We have saved a lot of money and stayed in some great locations, in high quality homes. The IVHE system is so much bettter than a simultaneous exchange as you can choose from a wide range of homes and travel whenever you want. Communication with IVHE is excellent, always prompt and personal. I highly recommend travelling this way!
IVHE is a wonderful way to experience the world from the vantage point of someone's own home. I am about to host my 2nd group and will now have enough credits to plan for a very special vacation. Dealing with IVHE has been stress-free, professional and very efficient. The value proposition is excellent and I highly recommend Suzie and her organization.
I have been an enthusiastic member of IVHE since 2007 and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We've made ten swaps and are negotiating two more at present. Our first was in Turkey and we've been to Venice, Saltash twice, Scotland, Marrakesh, Babarika, the Dordogne, Budleigh Salterton twice and have plans to visit Tiverton and Spain shortly. Accommodation has ranged from an apartment, a cottage, villas, a converted barn, a Riyad and a boutique hotel. We enjoy the variety and all have been of excellent standard. We have enjoyed taking friends and family. The website is excellent and easy to use. All arrangements have gone smoothly. The organisers are extremely helpful, both friendly and professional. The information about properties is good and they are happy to get extra details and information about each place before we finally make decisions. We enjoy the feeling of IVHE being a member's club and have been lucky enough to meet more like minded owners. Not to forget the very real financial advantage that these swaps have gained us. Being able to leverage the rental value of our house in this way is decidedly to our benefit. Onwards and upwards IVHE!
I highly recommend IVHE as an international home exchange service. It offers a different concept whereby rather than doing an exchange from one owner to the next you can actually choose wherever in the world you want to go. It has allowed us to explore so many different places from Costa Rica, to Hawaii, the slopes of Lake Tahoe, California, and Santiago and we look forward to visiting Europe with more of our credits soon. The service has been phenomenal, it is very personal and very prompt and in the two years we've had nothing but excellent results from IVHE. I highly recommend it and look forward to many more future vacations, saving a great deal of money on accommodation with this service.
Chris, the owner, arranged a transfer from Geneva for a very affordable price, ski rental with discount and helped with all our requests. It felt like we were visiting friends.It was my first trade request with IVHE club and I was very impressed how simple and stress-free was the booking.
We can highly recommend the personal service offered by IVHE - it is a cut above the services offered by other home exchange organisations. Further, the points system allows an exchange which is not dependant on someone wanting to exchange directly - great idea. We were very reassured by the fact that Suzie Magnus had obviously spoken extensively to so many of the members on the website, so that she had gained an idea of each person's needs and offerings. We found a home through the points scheme in a place we had not considered before - Newport, Rhode Island.
It was great to have had the opportunity of a good conversation with IVHE with first hand knowledge of the area, full of helpful advice about the town, the expected climate conditions for the time of year, etc.. This helped us greatly in deciding which of the IVHE villas to go for.
The pictures do not do justice to this beautiful place. The views are fabulous and it is close to town for walking and convenience. The weather is consistently good. We look forward to another visit.
Three IVHE exchanges, most recent Puerto Rico, before that Escola, Florida and Breckenridge, Colorado. All three way way beyond our expectations, absolutely gorgeous. Great locations, really nice clean units and the credits required were extremely reasonable so I couldn't be more pleased, and I have been a house exchanger for twenty five years, before the computerised version of it!
Had very good service, the people are very responsive when you have questions. Have exchanged twice now. Beautiful property, owners were very accommodating, let us know all the restaurant and all the things you could do. I have also exchanged my property a couple of time with no problems. Been a very good experience with IVHE.
Suzie has done an excellent job of developing a company that meets the needs of those with vacation properties who would like to 'swap' homes with others all over the world. The beauty of IVHE is that the trades do not need to be simultaneous. Hence, you can offer your home and 'bank' points to be used later, or use other homes and have yours available at a different time. I have found Suzie to be highly professional, communicative, and detail-oriented, providing the highest caliber of service while maintaining a warm,'personal' touch. I highly recommend this service to anyone.
Top qualities: Great Results, Good Value

Suzie is at the heart of IVHE an international home exchange concept that offers so much more than a mere introductory exchange service. Inventive and superb at solving issues that do not fit into boxes. The whole concept of IVHE is in very safe hands and I 100% recommend both Suzie and IVHE to anyone who wants to enhance their lifestyle and holiday experience.
