Open for exchange
Exchange dates Duration
August 01, 2020 - October 31, 2020 3 weeks

We have relocated from San Francisco to Palm Springs, California. We will be in Greece in mid-July and would be available for home exchanges in August. We're particularly interested in exchanges in Greece (Crete, etc.), London (where trains can take you on many day trips) and also Scotland (Glasgow especially). Please contact us if you would like to visit the desert landscape in sunny, southern California! For those enjoying sunshine, heat, and outdoor living the summer is also a tropical oasis. Our home has air conditioning, swimming pools throughout the property with jacuzzi, a private golf course, gym, onsite bar, restaurant, etc. The Marrakesh Country Club is a quiet, gated community, where most of our neighbors occupy their homes only during holidays (for family gatherings and golf). If you have interest or questions, feel free to contact us!

Palm Springs, CA, USA

We live about 25 minutes from downtown Palm Springs in the Mohave desert of southern California. Palm Desert is a community close to and just east of Palm Springs. From October through April the desert is warm (70-80 F) and inviting for golf, swimming, sun bathing, bicycling, etc. Our home has expansive views of the golf course and the surrounding Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains. The Marrakesh Country Club was designed and built by John Elgin Woolf in 1978. The homes continue to reflect a mid-century design, referred to as Hollywood Regency architecture. Our home is appointed with high quality European mattresses, new carpeting, and a patio overlooking the golf course with views of palm trees and mountains. Swimming pools and spas are available, which contain both salt water and are heated. Palm Desert is a balanced combination of proximity to Palm Springs, Joshua Tree National Park, and a relaxing desert refuge. The house is centrally located to visit the greater Los Angeles area (2 hours), San Diego (2 hours), and Las Vegas (5 hours by car). We are 20 minutes from the Palm Springs International airport. We are generally flexible about travel dates/times.
