We Offer Two Types of Home Exchanges, Allowing Almost Limitless Affordable Travel.
The typical house exchange, which is the only type offered by other home swap programs, involves two primary home owners who try to swap homes with each other at the same time. This can be as difficult to arrange as it sounds. At The Vacation Exchange Network, we also offer indirect house exchanges. In this case, you can use another member's home even if that member doesn't want to use your home. Maybe you have a Colorado ski chalet, but they want to sunbathe on the beach. Maybe you'd like to travel in the winter, but they only want to travel during the spring. The uniqueness of our Network is that you don't need to find an exchange partner who wants to use your vacation home in order for you to use their vacation home.
Your membership fee is waived the first year
Become a member, and you can stay in someone else’s home even if your home isn’t what they are looking for or you’d like to travel at different times

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Palm Island. If you want to just relax, this location is perfect. Although there is no view of the Gulf, the two mile long, white sand beach is a short walk away-it is uncrowded and a shell-collectors/birders paradise. The property is especially spacious, well appointed, and welcoming, as well as having a fully stocked kitchen. The very large, screened front porch has a table and chairs and looks out to a park-like setting of mixed palms and gardens. A great place for breakfasts. Tennis courts and a heated pool are across the street. We were especially impressed by the friendliness of both the resort staff and our neighbors. Everyone truly enjoys this place and with reason. Since Palm Island Resort doesn’t permit cars (you leave your car in a lot at the resort’s entrance,) you hear only nature’s sounds and occasionally a person whizzing by in a golf cart. But be sure to bring groceries for your stay because there is only a very small store at the Resort. There is also a restaurant and a coffee shop. This property comes highly recommended.
