Our home

We built our home seven years ago when we retired. It is a custom design and set on a one acre parcel in a private gated community. It has a large great room with floor to ceiling windows which look directly out to the forest. There is a formal dining room and a bar. The kitchen is fully fitted with refrigerator/freezer, double ovens, a microwave, and a five burner gas stove. There is a turret next to the kitchen for more informal meals. Our home has 4 bedrooms. The master has a king size bed with a fireplace and an ensuite bathroom with double sinks, jetted tub, toilet and large shower. There is a smaller master that has a queen bed with en suite shower, sink and toilet. The third and fourth bedrooms share a bathroom with double sinks, toilet and tub/shower. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has a queen pull out bed. There is a separate laundry room off the kitchen with washer and dryer. French doors lead out to a patio where you can enjoy quiet beautiful forest views overlooking a seasonal creek with various critters that scurry past or in winter observe a winter wonderland.

Who we are

  1. I am Maureen and my husband is Chuck. I am a retired teacher (22 years) and my husband was an engineer at Lockheed Martin (40 years.) We both love to travel and have enjoyed renting homes in various countries. Our first exchange in 2008 was to Brazil. I was a wonderful adventure.We know that the best part of travel is to meet the locals and living in a home is a great way to do that. We are open for travel anywhere and like to so with retired friends. Our home is very clean. I do it myself and I would treat your home with the same respect and love as I do mine. I would expect the same from you. So send us a message. I would want to get to know you over a period of time before the exchange.
