Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have just completed our first exchange through HomeLink with a family from France. It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to many more!

Contemporary, California style, art-filled home with large deck in a charming, secluded garden setting. Located between San Francisco/San Jose and Monterey/Carmel/Big Sur. Close to the beach, and a lively downtown. University town with many cultural activities, great restaurants, fabulous weather.
