We exchanged homes with the Rusch family July 2014. They live in a wonderful area of Portland within walking distance to restaurants, Powell's books, shops and transit. There home is cosy and very family friendly with a trampoline, bikes and loads of sports equipment. They were easy to communicate with through-out the exchange and helpful. They left us loads of information about Portland and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend an exchange with this family. They are great!
