We successfully arranged multiple exchanges when we lived in Portland, Oregon and have now completed 5 in our new location in San Luis Obispo, California. Rob & I prefer to exchange because it allows us to live more like a "local" when we visit an area.

Claudia & Kurt from Tahoma said

It was real pleasure to do this exchange. The owners were extremely easy to work with, and their home was very comfortable and beautifully maintained. They left our home in great shape as well. We hope to do another exchange with them in the future!

What we said about Claudia & Kurt's house:

Claudia & Kurt's home is wonderfully comfortable; a short walk to the shores of Lake Tahoe. A short drive to hiking trails along the lake's edge and minutes to shopping and restaurants. We had a great visit.
