Our home

In California we have an expression, "Mi casa,tu casa." (My house is yours) I hope you will feel that way about this home. I have made it a comfortable place with all modern conveniences, including air conditioning and high speed internet. I also have a lovely sunroom where you can sip your morning coffee and look out on my beautiful garden with a deck, spa, barbeque and a serene fish pond. Truly a place to escape. I have a beautiful, mature Collie named Abby Rose with a sweet, gentle nature. Pet care is not mandatory. However, if you have pets as well we could possibly arrange a pet care exchange. I'm sure you will find it a welcome retreat after an exhausting day of sight-seeing. I have a 5 passenger SUV that could be made available for your convenience if you'd like to do a similiar trade.

Who we are

  1. My name is Barbara. I am a mature lady with a young heart.My children, 2 sons and a daughter, live close by and have blessed me with eight marvelous grandchildren. My dream would be for all of us to go to Italy someday. In the meantime, I am always up for adventure and have had some outstanding ones with all my successful exchanges in Europe and "down under". The very best part of those exchanges has been the wonderful people i have met along the way. I am mostly retired with properties to manage. I am also a writer(no major successes) and I'm presently working on a screenplay. I love the theater, dancing and travel. I also find time to work in my garden. I speak some Spanish and am trying to learn a little Italian before I visit there. My desire is for your exchange with me to be a pleasant and memorable experience.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

My home is located in a quiet neighborhood that is convenient to shopping and freeways. My niece and nephew both live in houses across the street. Both have swimming pools and I'm sure they would be delighted to invite you for a swim and barbeque. San Jose is ideally located for sight-seeing and our weather is usually mild and sunny. We are less than 1 hour to San Franciso, 1/2 hour to the beach, ten minutes from the Santa Cruz mountains, with stately redwoods, perfect for biking, hiking or exploring. We are surrounded by small wineries and shopping malls. A few hours driving can take you to Lake Tahoe (gambling and recreation), Yosemite or the wine country. An hour's plane ride can take you to Disneyland, Los Angeles or Las Vegas. But if you don't want to travel, you can find plenty to do right here. We have museums, theater,concerts and many community festivals and events. I think you'll find this an ideal place for a vacation.
