Amanda James and Oona said

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful, warm home. It was so clean and comfortable, filled with art, books and crafts. Our daughter fell in love with the guinea pigs and I enjoyed watching the bunnies and mourning doves in the garden. It was an easy walk to the mall and many nice restaurants, and the immediate neighborhood is very charming. We enjoyed every minute of our trip to DC and were delighted to come home to a sparkling clean house with fresh flowers and homemade apple pie (Thanks Helen!). So many more museums to visit, I hope we can exchange again! Thank you so much! - Amanda

What we said about Amanda James and Oona's house:

We had such a lovely time in Amanda and James' house in Brooklyn. The house was spectacular---so inviting and warm and perfect for our stay. The two bedrooms on the top floor were great for our family---and we marveled at the restoration and renovation of this gem of a house. Thanks to Amanda and James for welcoming us into their home. They took the best care of our house while staying there and we hope to exchange again one day! The neighborhood was such a surprise---we have been to Brooklyn and Manhattan many times but had never before seen these enormous homes near Prospect Park. Great restaurants nearby---only a couple blocks to the park and a very short drive to many other neighborhoods in Brooklyn. We didn't use the subway during our visit---but it was just a couple blocks away and would have made an easy way to get into Manhattan.

Annie from Williamsburg said

The townhome is in a great location, convenient to everything Washington, DC, has to offer. The itself is very interesting and full of art and musical instruments. Looks like a family that enjoys being together. They left my home in perfect condition. It was a great first exchange experience for me! Thanks Helen!

What we said about Annie's house:

Annie was such a delight to communicate with and we had a spectacular time in her home. It was immaculate and beautiful and just perfect as a spot for visiting Jamestown and Williamsburg. She was as accommodating as could be and we had a great time. She stayed in our home while we were away and everything was in perfect order (probably cleaner than we left it!) when we returned. Thank you Annie!
