Amara and Dave from Monterey said

We had a wonderful time in San Anselmo. Linda and Rich's remodeled condo was clean, well organized and comfortable. The condo is centrally located. We walked to downtown San Anselmo several times, with cute shops and restaurants. The weather was beautiful. We enjoyed exploring Marin. Linda and Rich took great care of our cat and house.

What we said about Amara and Dave's house:

We had a great time in Pacific Grove! Dave and Amara's home is clean, comfortable, and very well located. We enjoyed having MingMing (the cat) welcome us when we arrived. We were able walk into Pacific Grove's downtown for brunch and on to Lover's Point to see the beautiful waves crashing on the rocks. Amara was wonderful to communicate with and we fully enjoyed our exchange. They were thoughtful with a welcome gift and plenty of information regarding the area. They left our home impeccable. We highly recommend this property and hope they will keep us in mind for future exchanges!

We had such a great time at Linda's and Richard's house, and in California in general! Linda was very helpful and we felt so comfortable in their home! The house is conveniently located right across the street from a grocery store, a pharmacy, and other stores. There are many nice bakeries and restaurants on walking distance or a short drive away (in San Anselmo, but also in Fairfax and San Rafael). San Anselmo was the perfect place to explore the surrounding area: the wine country, the beautiful coast, the redwoods and of course San Francisco. We definitely recommend other people to exchange homes with Linda & Richard!

We hade a wonderful Christmas in Linda and Richard's apartment. We found it immaculate when we arrived and they left our house in good order. The area is very interesting with lots to do: I liked Muir Wood especially and, of course, going to San Francisco on the Larkspur Ferry and seeing all the sights and eating in the wonderful restaurants.

What we said about Philip and Kate's house:

We had a wonderful time at Philip and Kate's home. It is exactly as pictured with all the charm and ambiance of a historic country home, yet with comfortable modern conveniences. The view of the valley from their home and the beautiful neighboring towns were exactly what we sought for our visit. Philip and Kate were very helpful regarding the history and amenities of the local areas. We highly recommend their home for those who appreciate the beauty of a historical home in a lovely setting - a perfect holiday experience!

We had such a wonderful trip to San Anselmo! Linda and Richard were so easy to work with. They gave excellent directions on what to do when we arrived at their home and lots of suggestions on how we could spend our days. San Anselmo is the cutest little town and the perfect location for either going to the wineries or going into San Francisco for a day trip. There are great restaurants within walking distance. The best part was coming home in the evening and sleeping in their super comfy feather bed. Their home was immaculate and had all the comforts that we needed for a fantastic stay. We would go back there in a heartbeat! There is so much exploring to do there and we just scratched the surface. Thank you again Linda and Richard for making this first exchange for us a very positive experience.
