We are originally from New York City, currently living as expats in Zurich after having also lived as expats in India, Bahrain and Hong Kong. My husband's job and our desire to explore the world has kept us on the road. We have 3 young children - a 4 year old boy and 8 year old twin girls, 2 dogs and 2 guinea pigs (none of which will be here during your stay) unless you really want them to be (the pets, that is).
We haven't done an exchange yet, but before I was married I had a great experience renting my NYC apartment to international travelers - many of home I still stay in touch with.
My kids are well behaved (for the most part!), and I promise that we will leave your home in immaculate condition.
Please note that due to my husband's allergy to cats we can not exchange with a home that has one.
