We thoroughly enjoyed Deborah and Tamim's home and neighborhood. (fresh pastries in the morning!) It was central to our travel experiences in San Francisco, Berkeley, Sonoma, and the coast. We felt at home immediately. Deborah's instructions were great; as welcoming as the neighbors & close friends we met while there. Their home and hospitality represents all that is best about the Home Exchange experience.
We had a wonderful exchange with Bob and Jan. We loved their home and their yard full of mango trees--we could not keep up with eating delicious mangos! Their instructions were very clear and they were always helpful. We had a lot of fun in Miami, Miami Beach, the Everglades, a side trip to the Keys, etc. Our daughters who live in NYC joined us for a few days and that was just great! We also did a car exchange, which was easy as we both had the same model car, so easy driving. Bob and Jan were very responsible with our home, car, and taking care of our cat. They are such nice people, we enjoyed getting to know them
