Greetings from the Bay Area!
Mom and Dad = Jenine and Greg. Kids = Sam 16, Lee 13, and Duncan 11. We are an active family, but love to cuddle-up with a good movie at the end of a long week. We enjoy being outdoors: biking, jogging, swimming and playing in the creek (accessable from the backyard.) Jenine loves to garden, as you'll notice all the different edibles in the side yard. We like to read and play board games. We have bikes for the whole family that are available to use. We have chickens that will be cared for by neighbors. We did an exchange in Canada last summer (2014) and one in Ireland the year before. Both were wonderful family adventures.
We're on the look-out for adventure! We love seeing and experiencing new things.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Jenine's home in the sunny and warm Lucas Valley. The home is perfectly situated both close to wine country and San Fran. The most amazing thing is the suprising climate. While San Fran would be shrowded in its famous fog, Jenine's home was always hot an sunny by day and cool and comfy at night. We really enjoyed the home owners association pool and then coming back for a glass of wine on their expansive deck and snacking on the bountiful veggie garden. We were also so very fortunate to meet this most wonderful family and they were excellent guest in our home.
This home in Burnaby, BC, Canada is welcoming and wonderfully maintained. Jerome was delightful to exchange with - very responsible and pleasant. His home is centrally located, beautifully maintained and has lots of places to relax in his gorgeous yard. Jerome created a "home exchange" book that was extremely helpful. It contained all the pertinent information that one might need when staying at his home. Jerome was also very respectful in our home. Would do another exchange with him in a minute! Great neighborhood and food near-by.
We could not wish a better start to our West Coast travels in summer 2015 than staying at Jenine and Greg's charming house close to San Rafael. Loved the quiet leafy area, but only minutes from anything we needed. Enjoyed making breakfast in Jenine's new state-of-the-art kitchen with American style fridge-freezer, built-in oven and microwave, Nespresso machine and quartz surfaces, and relaxing on their terrace. Jenine and Greg are a lovely couple with three sweet kids, had a lot of fun together and appreciated their hospitality and helpfulness. Our exchange exceeded all our expectations We had a marvellous time!
