Our home

Occupation: Retired paralegal, retired medical illustrator
In party: 2, sometimes 4 adults

Our House: Sleeps 5
Description: A large house near Mission Bay in San Diego. We have exchanged many times. The Pacific Ocean is about 1 mile from our house.

We can travel any time, but prefer non school holidays, except in colder climates, such as Scandinavia.

There is a large upstairs bedroom and bath with a view of the bay and the hills beyond it. Downstairs is a small bedroom with a twin bed & bath. The living room couch pulls out into a very comfortable queen-size bed.

There's a sitting room with TV and VCR, lots of CDs (mostly classical, some jazz and show albums), a small back yard with fruit trees and other edibles. The front yard contains a macadamia nut tree, shrubs and drought-tolerant flowers.

We have every appliance known to the modern world, including a professional stove (cooker) and about 50 cookbooks, so you can experiment with recipes if you want. Two major supermarkets and a green grocer are a 10-minute drive away. Plenty of good restaurants, prices for which are a true bargain for Europeans.

We have a large, eclectic library, two bikes, lots of books, a harpsichord and grand piano.

I am allergic to cats & dogs. We ask that you do not smoke in the house for the same reason.

Details: My husband and I are in our early 70's, healthy and enjoy traveling. We love "culture": museums, music, theater, architecture, etc.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

It's a family residential neighborhood with well-kept homes and friendly neighbors. We are close to public transit, which is the best way to get around San Diego. We do have a car which we could trade.

As we live on a peninsula only six blocks wide, it is seldom too cold or too hot. We do not need central air conditioning or heating.

Our neighbors are friendly and helpful.
