The world is so big...

And life is so short and precious. Travel allows us to experience the wonders of authentic interactions with others via conversation, sharing of food, and cultural exchange. Casey is a potter, photographer, and fly fisherman. I love to paint and draw, and we enjoy both big city life and countryside pleasures. We hike , backpack, and white water raft, and plan to stay active and travel as long as we can...

This was our first home exchange experience and Sharon & Casey made it so wonderful! First, their home is incredibly spacious and comfortable, located in a wonderful neighborhood of Portland. It is obvious the love and care they have given their home, and they make you feel welcome the moment you arrive. We were given great tips on places to visit - for foodies like us, it was great to know where the farmer's market was. And it was a real treat to cook in their wonderful kitchen. Our only regret was that we couldn't spend time with them personally!

We stayed at Sharon's home for 5 days. It is an amazing house. When we were first arriving, looking for the address, the whole family said 'wow' as we drove up. It is such a lovely neighbourhood, with so many beautiful houses and Sharon's house is the icing on the cake. This was our first exchange and it was really easy to make plans with Sharon. She left us lots of local info as well as clear instructions for caring for their home. Portland was a great trip for kids of different ages and stages and we hope to go back again soon. It was the perfect initiation to house exchange. Thank you Sharon!

This home is amazing!!! We are experienced exchangers ( this was our 18th swap) and I feel so lucky! The home is gorgeous, well appointed, quiet, and comfortable with TONS of room. ( the artwork is fantastic as well). Sharon and Casey left us with lots of information about the home, as well as the area, local restaurants, and tourism ideas. We found this home to be so EASY to access, lots of parking; with stores, restaurants, and buses within walking distance. At the end of a long day of sightseeing with the kids ( we have a 6 and 11 y/o) it was great to have a beer, make a salad, and climb into the hot tub. We slept wonderfully, with the kids were in their own room downstairs. Should anyone be thinking about a house exchange to Portland, I cannot recommend this house enough. You will not be disappointed! Sincerely, Anne (and family)

Just returned form Portland and our stay in Sharon and Casey's beautiful home. We loved the neighborhood. It was a great location with easy access to highways, other neighborhoods, and downtown. Perfect for exploring the city with easy access to great restaurants and other other shopping amenities. The house is huge and very comfortable. We enjoyed coffee on the deck each morning and marveled at the beautiful landscaping. We would definateley recommend this property and the welcoming hospitality of the hosts. We hope to visit again.

We stayed in this beautiful home for a family reunion/celebration of our son's opera premier. The house is spacious, tastefully furnished, and very comfortable. Sharon and Casey provided useful information on the area as well as a lovely gift of local wine. The four bedrooms provided ample space for our family and the master bedroom was absolutely charming. The kitchen was equipped with any item a cook would need, including an expresso machine. All our needs were taken care of - from a large screen entertainment center to an exercise room to a convenient laundry area. What we enjoyed most, however, were the terraced gardens which allowed us to enjoy our brunches outside during those warm, fall days. This is definitely a very special home.
