We prefer 2-week exchanges during the summer and winter breaks, and 1-week during the spring break.
For the summer, we are mostly interested in European locations, especially located near water: ocean, lakes, rivers, but are open for other ideas.
If you have a beautiful house and an exciting location then send us an offer, we respond to all inquiries.
My name is Dave, my wife Penny and I have 3 children: two boys, Dylan 23, and Zach 22, and one girl, Jordan 19. The kids are grown-up now and may not join us on some trips. I am a marketing professional with a large technology company, and my wife, Penny, is an ex-teacher and housewife. We have one cat, which is quiet and very friendly. Our family enjoys travel, and outdoor activities, and we always love to see new parts of the world. We are experienced exchangers, and you can be assured we'll take great care of your home, just as we would expect of you.
