Preferred Exchanges

  • United Kingdom

    July 23 — August 13, 2016 These dates are flexible

    We're looking for a house within walking distance to a few good pubs and restaurants. And being able to walk to a Tube or train station would be an excellent bonus. We are open to big cities and small towns. For the timing of the exchange: We are returning to the States--but not to our home--on 12 August. Our home can be available to you until 21 August. It is possible our exchange group will include our older daughters, so our group could total 6 adults and one older teenager.


  • Hiking
  • Historic Sites
  • Museums
  • Theater/Cinema
Especially Passionate About


We are avid fans of the theatre and attend 50+ plays every year. Brian is past-president of the Board of Directors for our local theatre. On our exchanges we love to see what's on at the local theaters.

Our exchange to Mill Valley in 2003 was simply brilliant - it was our third and we've done 12 more since. We have wonderful memories of the house, the town, Muir Woods, San Francisco and the Bay area, Yosemite, Napa, Sonoma and even the Jelly Belly factory... Meeting friends from Philadelphia and entertaining them in a real Californian home, watching the baseball at PacBell and seeing Barry Bonds hit a home run into the harbour, walking over the Golden Gate, rafting on the Merced, Shakespeare on Stimson Beach - all these and more went to make a fantastic holiday. The house is really comfortable and in a safe, friendly neighbourhood with great facilities nearby. Brian and Tracy were excellent hosts, as well as looking after our house beautifully. We really enjoyed meeting them and their girls in London the following year, and our daughter Alice has enjoyed their hospitality recently. We are pleased to call them friends and can't recommend an exchange with them highly enough. Best wishes Alan and Paula

We had a wonderful time in Tracy and Brian's magnificent home in Mill Valley near San Francisco. the house was spacious and very comfortable, and in a lovely little village with good restaurants and shops. It was also near the mountains and the stunning redwood forests.San Francisco in all its beauty and character is a short drive away across the golden Gate Bridge. Tracy left great and helpful hints on how to get the best from the area.
