Hello! We are looking for a simultaneous exchange in August in the Los Angeles or Orange County area.
We had a lovely time staying at Luke and Chloe's flat. It was centrally located and provided extremely easy access to the fabulous transportation system in and around London. We felt "right at home" staying in their comfortable and clean home. It was a pleasure doing a home exchange with Luke and Chloe. They were very friendly and accommodating.
Kim and David were delightful hosts and their home is lovely. The views from their house are beautiful. We especially enjoyed watching the birds - there were lots of hummingbirds and two other birds had made a nest right outside their front door so we could watch the little ones being fed with our morning cup of coffee! We also enjoyed riding the horses. The location was great - it made a great base for exploring the local area, with Los Angeles only an hour's drive away. Kim and David took good care of our home. Thanks again!
Chloe and Luke were the perfect exchangers. Our home has never been neater after an exchange - as if they hadn't stayed three weeks at all. Their home is modern, comfortable, secure, and beautiful. The location is very close to a key bus stop as well as the overground. And there are several pubs in the area including one that we fell in love with on day one. Groceries abound nearby including a Whole Foods for a taste of treats from home. The balcony was filled with Chloe's beautiful flowers to greet us in the morning and after a long day of sight seeing. We exchanged emails regularly leading up to the vacation and they were more than helpful about making it a perfect trip.
We were lucky to spend an amazing three weeks at Tom and Linda's beautiful home. Hermosa Beach is a perfect spot: great beach, shops, bars and restaurants all a short walk away. Tom and Linda were thoughtful hosts and took great care of our home. They were always easy to contact, kind and generous. Thanks again, Tom and Linda.
