A perfect chance to experience Switzerland. Hinwil is a rural small village yet only 20 minutes by train to Zurich. Our home exchange family prepared their home for our visit with full explanations of Switzerland and their two-story flat. They also accomodated our requests in advance of the visit in such a good measure of good will, such as putting Skype on their computer which we could use. Or providing specific information about some places we wanted to visit. Since almost all of Switzerland is accessible by no more than a two-hour train ride and this residence is walking distance of Hinwil's train station, this is a perfect exchange for a Swiss vacation.

What we said about Elisa and Norm's house:

Whidbey Island is a very relaxed location but still with a lot of cultural activities and things for children going on. We really enjoyed our stay at the well-appointed house with a a lovely view, friendly and helpful neighbors and a very productive garden with fruit and vegetables, which the generous owners allowed us to harvest for our meals. The convenient location is within walking distance of the ferry and the gratuitous Island transit bus.
