Shira, Jason and their children are great exchangers. They treated our home and automobile with care and respect and communicated well during the entire process. Their house is a great blend of old and new. The living and dining rooms are older, intimate, and feature beautiful box wood ceilings. You can see them in some of their pictures. The great room, downstairs bathroom, and rear yard/patio have the best of the new and are also excellent places to be. Jana's favorite place was the window seat and Jonathan's was the great room watching the little ones play with all the new toys. The home location not only gives the visitor easy access to the classic 'touristy' areas of San Diego, but also gives you an introduction into the local way of life. Shira and Jason left a list of local spots (restaurants, etc.) for us to check out and all the suggestions were great. We especially liked 'Cafe on Park.' We would definitely exchange with this nice family again. Good luck on all of your exchanges, - Jonathan, Jana, and the boys from Oakland.
