I had such an amazing experience. This was my first apartment swap and these two guys were simply brilliant and kind and took care of me while I was in Rome.

They took equally great care of my apartment in Los Angeles and will gladly do it again!

It was a last minute swap for a week in LA for a week in Rome and we met after the fact as our paths crossed in Rome the night before I came back to the States.

We exchanged several emails and several phone calls and all was set up ahead of time and had a friend of mine let them into the apartment and get them set up.

I would do it again in a heartbeat.
