Our home

Large waterfront flat located on the island of Alameda -- the jewel in the San Francisco Bay.

Victorian neighborhood surrounded by beautiful homes and gorgeous gardens.

Large living room looks out onto lagoon, simply beautiful during the sunset. Boathouse with canoe and bicycles available for your enjoyment.

2 bedrooms and washer/dryer upstairs, living room, office, open kitchen, and den downstairs. Waterfront patio for BBQs, sun bathing, or simply relaxing. Charming wrap-around garden. As is typical in our areas, we have 3 tenants that live in attached apartments with separate entrances. They may be here in case you have questions. If they are away we will put you in touch with friends that can help with anything you might need. Available for 1-4 week swap anytime. Non-simultaneous exchange possible as we are retired and have 2 homes.

No smoking. Car swap preferred. Possible exchange for second mountain cabin in the Sierra Foothills as well.

Who we are

  1. Experienced exchangers with extensive experience living and traveling in Asia, Europe and Latin America. Family of 6 with 4 adult children. We love to travel as a family whenever possible. Most often, however, it is just the two of us: Marsha and Michael.

    We are always open for exchanges within California or Boulder, CO (where 2 of our children live).

    We are seeking an exchange near Leeds, England in August 2015. We will be attending our niece's wedding on August 22 and would like to stay for 2-3 weeks.

    Our most recent family adventures include included 4 marvelous exchanges in Ireland, 2 in France and 2 in Argentina/Chile. Magnificent! We have also exchanged within the US and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

    We love the exchange process and look forward to getting to know your area and helping you plan a rich and wonderful stay in sunny California.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Located on the island of Alameda, know for its Victorian architecture, beach and mild weather (deviates the least from 60 degree F than anywhere in the USA). Originally founded as the vacation spot for San Francisco families looking to enjoy the beach and seeking to escape the chilly San Francisco winds. Located just 20 minutes from San Francisco by car or ferry. A great way to spend a day is to ride your bikes along the beach to the ferry, enjoy the beautiful views of San Francisco as you cross the bay and then explore CA's greatest city on foot or on your bike. The house is a 5 minute walk from the beach and a 10 minute walk from downtown -- a wonderful area filled with restaurants and a theatre. 20 minutes from Berkeley with its cultural and outdoor offerings. Close to Marin Headlands and Briones Park for great hiking. 2+ hours from the Sierra Mountains and Lake Tahoe. Possible exchange for second home in the mountains as well.
