It could be a Bay Area back road or abroad. The experiences of trying new foods, cultures, the local libations....
This was our first experience with HomeExchange and we couldn't have imagined anything more ideal! Todd and Laura were flexible, relaxed, and helpful. Their home is beautiful! It was clean and spacious and the view is truly a million dollar view! We thoroughly enjoyed sipping wine on their back patio while watching the sunset. Their home is within easy driving distance to many points of interest in and around SF as well as the Napa Valley. Very easy access to hwy 80! They were respectful of our home and left it clean and tidy. We would highly recommend them to anyone without hesitation! Thanks, Todd and Laura!!
Laura and I attend the Zinfest in Lodi pretty much every year. I never thought to try and do an exchange there so I searched the site and found Christian & Tara. I contacted them a couple weeks prior to the event and it just couldn't have gone better. They are spontaneous to be able to do an exchange on that short of notice. It was so easy to communicate and they are super easy going folks. Their home is beautiful and they have awesome neighbors as well. They are located a stones throw from miles of vineyards in an emerging wine region. We even had brunch at one of their recommended places in Lodi and were very please. We had a fantastic time in their beautiful. spot in the world. I would exchange with them every year if they wanted to.
Beautiful house with all home comforts. Todd has thought of everything to make your exchange a great experience. The views from the garden are breath taking and the home is central to many places to visit. The local restaurants are good, and the ferry to the city is a short drive from the house. All in all, a great exchange that I would really recommend.
An absolute great experience. Gaye and Paul live in a wonderful area. We stayed in the house called The Cardinals. The house has all of the comforts of home PLUS a pool and spa. Palm Harbor is a neat little town located near a lot of awesome areas. Some of our favorites were downtown Duneidin, Clearwater, Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Island etc. All a very short ride away. You are also not far from Treasure Island, St Pete’s, Ybor City at approx. ½ hour by car. Shopping, restaurants, and all amenities are walking distance or a very short car ride. I wish we could have stayed longer. This experience was better than we could have imagined. AAA+++.
Our exchange with Todd and Laura was a wonderful first experience through HomeExchange. They were very accommodating to our schedule in accepting a non-simultaneous exchange, and they made it a very pleasant experience for us. Their home is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful views, a lush garden, captivating art and more, and their hospitality made us feel very welcome right away. We are glad to have connected with them and recommend them as exchange partners.
We really had an absolutely wonderful time at Todd's place. This has been probably one of our best home swaps ever, and we have completed 14 so far. The house is really cozy with all the conveniences that you may need. On top of that you can enjoy outstanding views over the bay from the back yard. It's is very convenient to visit Napa and Sonoma Valleys, enjoy their wineries and incredible atmosphere. San Francisco is j about 50ish minutes drive, but if you want to skip traffic, just take the ferry from Vallejo to SF Pier 39 and enjoy your trip along the bay. You have plenty of eateries, stores, local market, and places to visit nearby. We even drove up to Lake Tahoe and the Yosemite National Park. Todd and Laura are one of a kind. They help us with everything and make us feel as if we were home. We are very fortunate to enjoy their friendship. We are looking forward to have the opportunity to see them again and share some wine together again.
We had a great time in Vallejo. Todd is super friendly and helpful, he came to the airport to receive us, and brought us back. He's a wine expert and passionate, ask him if you wanna drink a good glass of it. The house is marvellous, with a breathless view on the San Francisco Bay. It's well connected by ferry to the city or, if you prefer, it's half an hour drive to SF. In the other direction, you can reach easily Napa valley and Sonoma Valley. Around Vallejo there are many interesting parks and places to visit and enjoy. We really loved our time spent there. Thanks a lot Todd and Laura!
We had a great exchange with Simone & Silvia. They are easy to communicate with and are great people. Their Parma apartment was in the perfect spot to explore the town by foot or on one of their bicycles. They had their family available to help get us get situated and answer any questions that we had. Their apartment was clean and had everything necessary to feel like you were at home away from home. It could not have been a better experience and I recommend Simone & Silvia highly as Exchange Partners. Salute.
