I highly recommend IVHE as an international home exchange service. It offers a different concept. We've  explored so many different places. The service has been phenomenal, very personal and prompt and we've had only excellent results from IVHE.

We returned from a fantastic IVHE home exchange trip to London and Copenhagen. My husband commented on the trip, "This is the only way we are going to travel from now on!" I agree!

Love Home Swap and Exchanges, Save A Fortune

Property #0202
Experience a slice of heaven with a stay at this beautiful 4-bedroom vacation home exchange in Northern Idaho. Located just 40-minutes from Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort, this 3,000 square-foot home can welcome 8-10 guests any time of the year.  This home away from home vacation home exchange has open beam vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, a steam bath and hot tub, a washer and dryer, and satellite television.

During your stay, you are just steps away from Lake Pend Oreille. All you have to do is take 100 steps down to the dock, where you have access to a ski boat, wind surfer, and a kayak. Or you can cool down with a swim, or you can go scuba diving. You and your guests can also relax on a 1,500-square-foot deck overlooking the lake. The lake itself was formed by glaciers and is Idaho’s largest lake and one of the deepest inland lakes in North America. If you like to fish, the lake is home to multiple varieties of fish such as kokanee salmon, Kamloops, rainbow, brown, brook, and hybrid trout. The vacation home exchange comes with a kitchen, so you can enjoy your dinner out on the dock while watching the sun set across the lake.

Don’t forget your skis if you plan to vacation here during the winter months. The Schweitzer Mountain Ski Resort has 2,900 acres of lift accessed slopes. The resort was voted by Ski Magazine as one of the “best kept secrets in North America”. Schweitzer’s 92 designated trails include two open bowls - Schweitzer Bowl and Outback Bowl. 10% of the terrain is beginner, 40% intermediate, 35% advanced and 15% is expert. If you don’t ski or snowboard, you can still enjoy the fresh powder by snowshoeing or tubing at the resort.

This luxury home exchange is also just minutes from Sandpoint, Idaho. Here, you can enjoy shopping, golfing, and many dining options. You can also book a cruise across Lake Pend Oreille. Afterwards, you can check out either the Bird Aviation Museum and Invention Center, or the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch.

This vacation home exchange is perfect for anyone looking to relax and recharge any time of year. We can guarantee you will call this place your home away from home. Be sure to reserve this vacation home swap today!   

Penang Malaysia, IVHE.com Property #1288

Are you an expatriate or expatriate in the making?  If yes, this luxury home exchange in Penang, Malaysia is for you.   This relaxing community (mostly made up of expats) is centrally located between the bustling regions of Gurney and Pulau Tikus Town.  Part of what makes this location wonderful is that this gated community is relaxing and a reprieve from the surrounding lively civilization.

Of special note is the creatively sculpted pool area and patio with numerous palm trees giving the community a tropical, paradisiacal feel.  Wonderfully, this property has a pool-facing view.  With white tile throughout, this home has clean, sophisticated lines—a sort of minimalist ambiance with just a touch of decoration.  The living room has a big, flat-screen TV, a comfortable couch, and a dark wood desk.  In the dining area is a dark wood table which seats 6.  There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  One of the bedrooms is decorated in salmon, white and gray; another bedroom, decorated in primarily blue and white, has fun, whimsical bedding.  One of the bathrooms has a refined yet functional stone countertop.  The kitchen has a washer/dryer. 

With 24-hour security onsite, covered parking, and a lift straight to the property, safety should not be a concern at this home swap property. 

One of the great things about this location is that if you want bustling, live, entertainment, all you have to do is step out of the community, take a five-minute walk to the Gurney area which features high rises, a promenade, and a several-storied mall, and simply walk around.  There are western conveniences such as Baskin Robbins as well as, what else?—Asian delights. With the high-rises, the mountainous background, and the lovely water, Gurney feels a bit like Honolulu.

For a varied and dynamic culinary experience, try the Pulau Tikus Market Hawker Centre.  Also in Pulau Tikus Town is the Colonial Penang Museum and elaborate Buddhist temples.

For a truly exotic adventure, teeming city life, and a peaceful place to rest, this Penang, Malaysia home exchange option has it all.
