Kieser - founder of Accom Swap.
In 2003 Mike had the foresight to realize the potential for a bartering
system in an ever escalating world wide financial crises. Although
there were house swap systems in place there was nothing for the hospitality
industry and so after much brain storming with family members Accom
Swap became a first and was launched.Mike likes to think of the members
of Accom Swap as one big family and endeavors to keep that personal
touch.Mike does and is responsible for the web site designing and
coding and oversees the general management of the business.Mike can

members, and have stayed at many of the venues, and met a
number of the owners of the various establishments.
are dedicated swappers, and we captured Mikes vision from
the outset.... What an inspired concept....( I wish I had
thought of it!.). We have had the most warm receptions, and
made some really enduring friendships over nearly 20 years
of our involvement in the hospitality industry, many through
accommodation swap .
I am excited at the prospect of assisting Mike in developing
ideas and strategies to further the interests of his membership,
and in growing the "Swap family."
and Kerry are the proud owners of the iconic "Inkungu
lodge" boutique hotel in the central Drakensberg resort,
