Hello! We are a family of 4--Mike (me, 48), Helene (43), Rebecca (7) and Heath (5). We live in the Washington, DC area. Our house has 4 bedrooms and 2 and 1/2 baths and is located just 0.5 kilometer from the city and from a metro stop that will take you to the heart of downtown and all the museums and tourist sites (White House, monuments, etc.) in about a 15 minute ride. From our house, you can walk to shops, grocery stores, restaurants and parks. We are also 2 kilometers from Bethesda, Maryland and all of its many shops and restaurants. We are about 1.5 km from bike trails and a short drive from nice hiking. We belong to a swimming club, a short walk away, which you would be able to use while you're here. In addition to all of the sites of the capital city of the US, Washington is well-located for exploring other cities like Baltimore (45 minute drive), Philadelphia (2 hour train ride or 2.5 hour drive), New York (3.5 hour train ride or 4 hour drive), as well as the Atlantic Ocean beaches (2.5 hours) and Shenandoah National Park and other mountain areas (1-2 hours). If you are interested in coming to Washington next summer, please take a look at our listing and let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
Mike, Helene, Rebecca & Heath

We love to exchange!
The house of the Adlin family is very nice and is verely nicely situated. The contacts between our two families were very good and very easy. The access to Washington D.C. is very straightforward; the house is only 5 minutes walking away from the nearest metro station, from where you go straight into downtown D.C. There is a great bike trail that you can get onto closely by the house and even major shops and restaurants are at walking distance. I had a great time with my teenage daughters in the hous of the Adlin famlily in Chevy Chase.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is very well-located, a 20 minute walk to the center of Aix, and in a small and safe area with lots of space. The pool is great to return to at the end of the day, and the Hilverda family is laid back and very easy to deal with. You're a short walk to the grocery store, a short drive to the highways that take you to the rest of Provence and the house has everything you could need for a comfortable stay.
We exchanged homes with the A family the summer of 2012. Their house is very nice and spacious with everything you could possibly need to have a grat stay, including workout equipment and very effective air conditioning. It's very well located in a quiet and safe neighborhood, yet within walking distance from the subway as well as numerous shops and stores. Chevy Chase is a great starting point both for trips to downtown Washinton as well as other places. There are also a great bike/run trail nearby. There are lots to see and do in this area of the US. The A family was very easy to deal with and they very generously listed us as house guests at their local swim club. Greatly appreciated in the hot summer. We can highly recommend an exchange with this family!
We had a great exchange with the B. family in the Summer of 2012. The apartment is beautiful, very large, modern, with a nice balcony you can eat meals on and it's in an amazing location. Within one block you can catch the subway or multiple buses, all of which run often and always on time and can take you anywhere. Within 2-3 blocks are parks, water, lots of restaurants and shopping, at least 3 big grocery stores and everything else you could possibly need. Stockholm is great for biking, with bike lanes everywhere, trails, parks, great views, etc. The B. family took great care of our home and were very easy to deal with. We had a great time here and highly recommend this place and this family!
The Adlin Family were (in 2013) our first exchange partners. They were kind, patient, informative and very trust worthy. We had a perfect balanced exchange and enjoyed their lovely home very much. It is quiet, well equipped, conveniently located for great shops in Chevy Chase and transportation to the centre of Washington and the greater DC area. There is so much to see and do in the area, we would like to come back one day for a second exchange. The Adlins took care of our house and car very well. We can highly recommend an exchange with the Adlins ! Bob and Carolien & daughters from Amsterdam
We had an amazing, unforgettable exchange with the Brandsen/Croon family. They are friendly, open, relaxed and very easy to communicate and exchange with. Their house is beautiful, consisting of 4 floors in the Westerpark neighborhood which is a perfect location. It is 2 blocks from a large, beautiful park on a canal with everything you could want, trails for running and biking, playgrounds and petting zoos and "wild west" experiences for the kids, restaurants and bars, etc. The neighborhood has restaurants, shops, grocery stores and everything else you could possibly need within a 2 block walk (great fries and ice cream too). It is about a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bikeride to the Central Station and much of the rest of the touristic center of Amsterdam. The Leidesplein is a 10 minute tram ride (which stops about 1 block from the house) or 15 minute bike ride away. The house is well equipped with everything you could need and very comfortable. This was our 4th exchange and easily our kids' favorite by far, and for us it was tied for our favorite. We highly recommend exchanging with the Brandsen/Croon family and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Wonderful exchange. The house is situated in a quiet area with all the amenities needed for Washington and yet everything you need for shopping. But the best of the exchange was Mike, Helen, Rebecca and Heath. A family, helpful, generous, sociable. You can not ask for more. Thank you friends! I'm still wearing proud the bracelet that Rebecca made for me. Kisses from Francesc, Carolina, Aitana y Hector
We had an amazing exchange with this great family from Barcelona! The apartment is large and modern with everything you need, and is only a few blocks walk to a nice beach, which is great to return home to after a day of sightseeing. Bike and walking paths that run by the beach take you to Barceloneta with miles of beaches on the way. The apartment is a few steps from the Selva de Mar Metro stop, on the L4 Metro line which takes you directly to many of the main tourist areas in 10-20 minutes. The family made the exchange very easy for us and left our house in perfect condition. We loved everything about this exchange!
