Our home

We have a large, beautifully furnished 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom corner apartment. The partially open kitchen is recently remodeled with a breakfast bar and dishwasher. The dining table seats six. We have huge windows, lots of light, a small balcony and nice views. Most windows face a private key park and playground (to which we have access). It is quiet, having recently been fitted with double-pane "city windows" and air-conditioning in every room. Laundry facility on premises. We are on the 10th floor of a completely residential building with 24-hour doorman. We can accommodate a couple in the master bedroom (with queen-size bed) and three singles in the second bedroom, one on a sofa sleeper and two in a bunk bed. We do not smoke and cannot allow smoking in our apartment for allergy reasons. Yes, the piano is tuned and those who know how are welcome to play it!

Who we are

  1. We are Cathy and Dimitri, a married couple, both university professors in our 40s, non-smokers. We have a 12-year-old (Teddy) and a 10-year-old (Jack), both experienced travelers and home-exchangers.
    Our immediate exchange interest is to find a place in or near San Francisco from about July 7 until the middle of August, to visit family in San Francisco and let the kids attend some of their favorite summer camps in the SF area. A simultaneous or nearly simultaneous exchange would work best, but make a suggestion and we'll see what we can work out!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our apartment is centrally located, two blocks southeast of Washington Square Park, on the edge of Greenwich Village and SoHo. We are within 3-5 blocks of ALL the major subway lines, so you are ideally positioned to see the whole city, but we have great restaurants, shopping, theater, cinema, jazz clubs, and nightlife in our immediate neighborhood, so you can have a great time using only your own feet, too. Our part of the city is known for its great culinary heritage, and we would love to share all our favorite small specialty food shops with you, and we have a fully equipped and pleasant kitchen at your disposal. In the evening we like to get a top-notch ice cream and stroll through Washington Square Park listening to the musicians who play there in the summer months.
