Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Dates are usually flexible, just ask!
Always open to Southern New England locations (family resides throughout).

Just 5 miles west to the Gulf of Mexico's white sand beaches and 5 miles east to Downtown, our quiet residential neighborhood is also convenient to nature preserves, shopping and a variety of cuisine. Average high 82°F (27°C). Average low 64°F (17°C).

Guests 12+ years of age are welcome to play and seek comfort at our modest smoke-free and cat-free home with central air and large backyard with Big Green Egg, fruit trees and 6' privacy fence.

Our single family home is approx 1,800sf (167m2) and you're sure to enjoy its split bedroom plan with extra privacy! The Master offers a king size Casper bed, 47" HDTV with PS4 & AmazonTV, walk-in closet and newly renovated (May 2017) en suite.

Bedroom #2 has a queen bed with HDTV & PS3. Studio 211 (bedroom #3) has a twin bed with HDTV & Xbox 360, along with a variety of string and percussion instruments.

The shared guest bath received a complete overhaul, a gorgeous modernization (Feb 2017), the kitchen underwent a full remodel (July 2017) and the property has reliable WiFi throughout.

Our mature late-30s male renter, who works full-time in the operating room and remains there, on-call, on weekends, occupies the garage conversion. The two doors between his room & the main living space offer added privacy and he has his own entrance & exit but is happy to help with suggestions, directions, etc., as needed.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

With mobile notifications available now, we're able to see & offer a custom reply to your inquiry right away (Eastern Time).

Blessed with mild climate year-round and a home just minutes to everything, we're thrilled to share! When considering an exchange, our only requests are non-smokers, no cats and two baths. Easter, Summer, Thanksgiving & Christmas holidays are our peak travel times but we do consider all offers. Traditionally, we use the exchange as a home base and explore its surroundings, culture, history, nature, etc.

We're certainly open to your needs though our home is best suited for mature travelers; well-behaved dogs are always welcome!

Courtesy Points:
No couples in the children's bedrooms.
Replace food & other items that you finish.

The only house rules, 1) Practice courtesy and respect, 2) Make fun new memories while you're here!

Larger groups will find an elevated queen air bed available, a queen sleeper sofa in the master bedroom, and the living room will accommodate one in your party.
