Our home

Our home is a patio home (small, one storied). It is comfortable, clean and well furnished. It has a spacious dining/living room combination with vaulted ceiling. It has a small fenced back yard that is very pretty, with a large screened porch that is private.

Who we are

  1. We are Doug and Elaine, a married couple with no children. Doug is a college graduate who came to the US as a foreign student from China and Elaine is a recently retired nurse. We are both retired now and we have not experienced home exchange before. We probably would like to try this on a short exchange basis (2-3 weeks period).

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated about a mile north of the Gulf of Mexico, we used to be within short driving distance from all the fine restaurants and casinos along the coast. Hurricane Katrina has destroyed all that. All we have to offer now is a neighborhood in the process of cleaning up the debris and trying to rebuild. Three out of the 10 casinos in the area are slated to re-open during the Christmas season. Our home and the surrounding homes did not sustain damage from the storm. Seeing the Gulf Coast and New Orleans (80 miles west) at this time is eye-opening, giving a feel for the wrath that Mother Nature can put forth.
