We stayed 4 weeks in Los Angeles, in Genie and Harlan's home, during july 2010. It was a great home-exchange! The house is very well-located : 5 minutes from Farmer's Market, LACMA or La Brea Tar Pits. So, right in the heart of the city. Santa Monica beach is only at 20 minutes. There are so many things to appreciate in Los Angeles. They gave us advices which we liked a lot (open-air movie, free theater show in Griffith park,...). The neighborough is very quiet (no noise at all), with lovely houses. The house is huge, with very large bedrooms, A/C if needed. The kitchen is beautiful, modern, with lots of appliances. Nice wooden floors. Our children enjoyed the trampoline in the backyard garden, the toys, and above all the WII! I enjoyed the L.A. Times every morning! Plus, Genie and Harlan are serious people, you can trust in to care about your house. They are easy-going and understanding. I highly recommand a home-exchange with the Gleeson family!

What we said about Gaëlle 's house:

We exchanged homes for 4 weeks July of 2010 with Gaelle and Fabrice's home in Lyon France. We had a wonderful time and the home exchange was perfect! The house was bright and cheerful and well maintained-everything I expected from the photos. It was the perfect base for exploring not only the beautiful city of Lyon, but also all of France. A two minute walk to the subway for easy access to the whole city. My children enjoyed the downstairs projector for watching movies on a "big screen" in the evenings and the children's rooms are most whimsically decorated! They took excellent care of our home during their stay... It was an ideal first time home-exchange experience!!
