Description of the home we are offering for exchange
We have our summer 2020 exchange arranged. We are open to discussions about 2021.
Our family friendly home is located in quiet Irvine, CA. Irvine is master planned community with an exceptional number of parks and boulevards. We are 60 km southeast of Los Angeles. Our home is also close to Disneyland, beaches and the rest of Southern California. There is almost an unlimited number of activities within an hour drive. Irvine has been rated the safest city in the USA with a population over 250,00 eleven years in a row by the FBI.
Our 240 m sq home comfortably sleeps 7 in beds. More on couches or air mattresses. The master bedroom has an ensuite. There are three additional bedrooms with a shared bathroom, a living room with tuned piano, dining room, family room and an eat-in kitchen. The home includes modern appliances in the kitchen. The washer and dryer are the garage. (No need for a separate laundry room since it never freezes.) For entertainment there is a flat screen TV with surround sound, Netflix subscription, Blu-ray and DVD, WiFi, Wii game, and local phone. A portable crib, high chair and children's toys are available. (We love our grandkids.)
The sunny backyard has cushioned seating for 4, pleasant outdoor dining for 6 and a piped-in gas barbecue. The playhouse for children includes a slide, hammock and digging tools. Planted around the house are fruit trees, citrus trees, fuju, blueberries and grapes. Something may be ripe for eating during your visit.
We enjoy meeting other exchange families who happen to be traveling through Los Angeles. Please contact us if we can host you or if you want to stop by for dinner or are in need of assistance.
Thank you for checking out our home. We hope to hear from you soon.
