Our home

We have a comfortable family home located on a cul-de-sac near to Berkeley and San Francisco. We have three bedrooms (two with double beds, and one with a queen-size bed), two bathrooms, a living room and a dining room. The eat-in kitchen opens onto a deck and a lovely fenced garden with fruit trees (e.g., fig and orange), a palm tree, and flowers and bushes—there is a grill and garden furniture for enjoying the outdoors. One of the bathrooms is recently renovated and the second bathroom and kitchen are in the process of being renovated.

Who we are

  1. Katharine is a professor of education at a university and Tom is retired. We have three sons, but they are all adults and do not live at home. Katharine was born and grew up in England, but hasn’t lived there in over 30 years. We enjoy traveling, outdoors activities, spectator sports, movies, and the theater. This is our first home exchange.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in an excitingly diverse part of the United States—lots of different languages spoken, lots of terrific ethnic restaurants. It’s possible to visit the world by visiting our part of California. We are within a short drive (e.g., 10 minutes) of excellent outdoors activities (e.g., hiking, surfing, windsailing, golfing, swimming), as well as shopping, cultural events, restaurants, and nightlife throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. We are within easy reach of San Francisco and Berkeley (by car, bus and/or subway), and it is an easy drive to lovely places a little further away, such as Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, and Carmel. We enjoy a Mediterranean climate, with about 310 days of sunshine and 20 inches of rain each year.
