Especially Passionate About

Montessori education, children, learning languages, nature, sustainability

We love trips that help us learn/perfect languages (we all speak English, French, and Spanish), meet new and interesting people, and get outside. We practice and teach yoga and also love to be outside, even when we are visiting cities. Montessori and other alternative education styles are a huge interest and passion of ours.

Amazingly central location. We used bus and Metro to get into central DC for all the sites and activities. So nice not to have to drive. Friendly neighborhood with park one block away, easy to walk to major grocery store. We enjoyed nearby Takoma Park and Jamacian restaurant nearby the house. Thanks for the homegrown tomatoes!

What we said about Cindi & Jeff's house:

We had such a great time staying at Cyndi and Jeff's house in Portland! They are so organized that it was very easy to find everything, figure out how things worked, etc. And their house was so perfect for our 3 kids, with great toys and a clubhouse outside. They were also just a joy to work with in the planning of the trip. We would recommend an exchange with them 100%!
