Visual Aesthetics – 10
Good sense of colours, visually easy on the eye and with just the right amount of photos and amusing cartoons to back up the text, I’d say they hit the nail right on the head.
User Friendliness – 9
Very easy to find your way around the site, and if you’re looking for something specific like “Books” on home exchange for instance, it should be a breeze. Everything was neatly arranged and well organised – nothing too fussy, and very sensible indeed.
Reading Enjoyment – 10
If you love travel and love the home as I do, you should love this site, as I did! It really gives great insight on this non-mainstream way to travel – portraying it as a fantastic way to really experience a new place, especially fantastic for families (imagine your kids delight at having another child’s toys at their disposal!), not to mention easy on the budget. I thoroughly enjoyed sifting through every morsel in this highly readable site.
