Dancing

Dancing

Our whole family loves to dance. We especially like Swing (Lindy Hop) and enjoy riding our bikes in Golden Gate park on Sundays when the streets are closed to take advantage of "Lindy in the Park". We all get off our bikes and dance in the streets!

We had a wonderful stay at this charming Victorian home. We loved the proximity to the Haight, Golden Gate Park, Twin Peaks, and Cole Valley, with it's nice shops and restaurants - Ice Cream Bar, especially! (That we never would have known about.). The house itself was very clean and homey and the owners kind and easy to work with. The cats were a bit skittish at first, but gradually became our pals. There is a big staircase to get in, and parking can be a bit of a walk, so that should be considered for those with mobility issues, but it was super easy to get anywhere in the city with public transit (I used the 511.org app). We have many great memories!

What we said about Matthew and Jessica's house:

Matthew and Jessica are so accommodating and their house is spectacular. They were so willing to work with us on dates that worked and once the stay arrived we had such a wonderful time. Our whole family loved the house, the kids loved the bunk bed and there was plenty of space for everyone. The walk to the ocean was very nice, we saw deer everyday, and otters off the coast. The back yard is so pleasant with fragrant lavender. We enjoyed the stay so much!!

What a wonderful exchange! This is an authentic Edwardian flat in Cole Valley, adjacent to Haight-Ashbury and one block from a wonderful street full of cafes, restaurants and shops. MUNI (public transport to everything) is only one block over and super convenient. The home is beautiful full of authentic architectural details, including a traditional spice dryer cupboard...never seen one before! Trina and Brent were wonderful hosts, very organized with information (I am learning from them!) and most gracious. Their two kitties are incredibly sweet and loving, easy to take care of. We loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone that want an authentic SF home exchange.

What we said about Adriana's house:

We had such a wonderful time in Corona Del Mar - Chris and Adriana had a wonderful home and were wonderful house guests. We especially enjoyed the walk to the lovely beach that is nearby. What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon! The little town on the way was also so cute and convenient. It is a great location to many great coastal areas. We also liked having a kitty to keep us company! Thank you so much Chris and Adriana for sharing your home with us!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home! It was close to everything and we never even had to use our car. We really got the feeling of living in a small community in a large city when we were there. We also loved your cats. Thanks for a great time in SF!!

What we said about Yvette's house:

We really enjoyed our stay in beautiful Cardiff-by-the-Sea! This is a lovely home, and we thoroughly enjoyed spending evenings (and some days) in the backyard with it's wonderful seating areas and fire pit! BBQ, relaxing in the spool, the wonderful vegetable garden, this really was paradise in Southern California! The local beach was also wonderful, the waves were not too big, and there were great little tide pools for the kids as well. Also wonderful local restaurants. What a wonderful place to stay, thank you so much!
