On the go family of four with a sumptious base in the Big Apple.
We are a young family of four. Leo is a Medical Doctor and Professor at New York University. He is fluent in Spanish. Caitlin, a PhD scientist works at the science journal Nature. We have two sweet little boys who know their manners. They are *excellent* travelers, having already visited London, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Zurich and Istanbul as well as many US cities. We will care for your home as if it were the Four Seasons!
This was our first home exchange and we had a great time in NY. Caitlin and Leo are very easy to communicate and everything went very smoothly. We were able to keep in touch while we were in each others homes so anything that came up was solved immediately. Their place is located in UWS and is in perfect location. It is a classic Manhattan home with fireplaces and even a jacuzzi. We were able to walk to Central Park and a lot of good restaurants close by and subway is also very close though we always took cabs since we were four adults. It is a great place to stay if you want to be close to everywhere in NY. Also the neighborhood is very baby friendly, lots of strollers on the streets. They kept our place in perfect condition too. Overall I think we both had a great experience and were happy with our exchanges.
Fazilet's bright, gorgeous apartment was cornerstone the trip-of-a-lifetime visit to Istanbul. A quick, inexpensive and convenient taxi ride allowed us to hop the ferry in Bebek to cruise the Bosphorus to Sultanahmet to take the Levant metro pretty much anywhere in the city. We also loved sampling the local restaurant scene. The apartment is beautifully appointed and very comfortable with every amenity. Our two little boys enjoyed relaxing with books in the enormous, sun-flooded living room. Fazilet was incredibly helpful with tips, suggestions and thoughtful preparations for our family which made our 10-day stay unforgettable. Overall an outstanding exchange!
This was our first home exchange and we had a great time to introduce NYC to our 2 kids. Caitlin and Leo are very easy to communicate and everything went very smoothly. Their place, a classic family-sized Manhattan home, is located in UWS. It is a great place to stay if you want to be close to Central Park and there are a lot of good restaurants close by. They kept our place and our 2 cats in perfect condition too. Overall I think we both had a great experience and were happy with our exchanges.
We had a very luxurious time in Paris. The apartment and neighborhood are five stars! Francois was the ideal host for our stay in Paris, making sure everything was perfect for our stay. When we arrived his housekeeper showed us the apartment and made sure we could do the locks. Our jaws dropped when we stepped inside. This is an absolutely stunning apartment, like you would see photographed in Architectural Digest. Very, very stylish and completely unique. The kitchen is enormous and very well equipped. We loved having dinner al fresco on the spacious outdoor space. My sons wanted to 'go swimming' every night in the jacuzzi. The neighborhood (Le Marais) is very chic, a stone's throw from the Picasso Museum and a short walk the Metro. Francois his wife and two children left our apartment in New York in perfect condition. All and all - a great exchange!
