What are ThirdHome members saying about their luxury home exchange trips (to the Necker Cup and New Zealand) this week?

NEcker Cup

Necker Cup | The Bahamas

After the devastation of Hurricane Irma in the B.V.I., it was uncertain as to whether the Necker Cup would occur in 2017. It was especially doubtful after Richard Branson was forced to take shelter in his Necker Island home’s wine cellar as 185-mph winds decimated the island. But this didn’t set back the Necker Cup team! The event was relocated to Baha Mar in The Bahamas and held with the special purpose of raising money to rebuild the British Virgin Islands. The event, including an End of the World Party, gala and auction, raised over $3,000,000 for beneficiaries working to help the B.V.I. recover from Irma. The Necker Cup was as star-studded and glamorous as it had always been but it was also a meaningful event given its unique circumstances. ThirdHome’s Sr. VP of Business Development, Roger Conner, had the opportunity to attend. You can see him pictured below with his daughter, Polly Fleming, and Actor Jamie Foxx.

Necker Cup New Zealand

Dunalistair House | New Zealand

Experience northern New Zealand’s natural beauty from the Dunalistair house at The Kinloch Golf Club. This minimalist home is situated on a hill overlooking the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course and Lake Taupo. With room for 8 people, this home is ideal for a family or small group golf getaway. The holiday village of Kinloch is only about a mile away and offers lakefront beach access, biking trails, dining and shopping. The Taupo region is also regarded for its world-class trout fishing. The waters are crystal clear and the Steelhead Rainbow Trout are abundant. Be sure to check out the Dunalistair House when planning your New Zealand holiday.

ThirdHome member Susie says, “This was a family trip of a lifetime…The home on Kinloch Golf Club was stunning, comfortable, beautifully stocked and the perfect home for exploring the North Island….We could not give this higher marks. It was perfect all the way around. Don’t miss this opportunity to see New Zealand in style!” click here to read more of Susie’s review
