Love traveling and meeting nice people through Home Exchange!
We are a family of 5, Fred, Ann and three children.
Fred is a Vice President for Union Bank, he loves golf, watching golf, soccer, and cooking shows on TV, and hanging out with the kids. Ann is a "homemaker" that likes to read, hike, kayak, ride her kid's retired horses, and renovate homes, and is looking forward to having just a little free time now that the kids are all off to college.
Jake, aged 26, is busy earning his PhD in biochemistry at SFU in Vancouver, BC, Justice, aged 21, is a film-maker attending USC School of Cinematic Arts, and Brianna, aged 20, is a math major attending San Diego State University.
We have six horses, two dogs, and one rabbit. Jake and Brianna have been riding and showing their American Quarter horses on the national circuit pretty much all of their lives. Jake enjoys golf, surfing and riding his horse. Justice loves basketball (he was on the 2nd place high school team in California!), and baseball - Go Padres! - and ALWAYS has a video camera in his hands. Brianna loves photography, and riding and training her young horse, and has retired from many years of competitive soccer.
We have completed several exchanges and loved the experience! We have met such nice people and stayed in some lovely homes. It is such a great way to visit an area and feel like a "local".
January 7 — January 18, 2016
My daughter and I are looking for an exchange to Scottsdale near WestWorld for a horse show in January. We can offer two weeks at any time in 2016 at our beach cottage in exchange.
We had a wonderful time at the beach cottage! Ann met us there when we arrived and supplied us with all sorts of beach toys/boogie boards for our kids. The cottage was well stocked and very comfortable with nice outdoor space for eating and relaxing. Just one block back from the ocean, it's easy to make multiple trips to the beach in one day. We thoroughly enjoyed LEGOLAND and the Safari Park as well as exploring Encinitas and San Diego. This was our first home exchange and we had an extremely positive experience. Ann was a delightful hostess and we look forward to future exchanges.
