House in Santa Rosa, USA

Our open-concept home was remodeled in 2014, sits on the 15th fairway and views two mountain ranges. World class vineyards are our neighbors. From our front door, we bike, hike and walk 600 steps to a lap pool and hot tub. Located in the Valley of the Moon, we are 5 km from town, one and a half hours away from San Francisco, and one hour from the Pacific Ocean. We are both retired, non-smokers, no pets and no bad habits. There will only be two people in our travel party.

About Our Family

Gary and I are retired professional who love to travel, much of which is done via exchanges: Russia, France, Norway, Sweden, Ireland, Canada, Germany etc.

Our home is comfortable for adults. We live on a mountain top in a log home amongst acres of landscaped gardens. House proud, we maintain our home with the same respect we give to all the exchange homes we've experienced.

Not only do we find pleasure in different geographies of our world, we find joy in meeting new friends. We enter each adventure with newfound enthusiasm and excitement!

Lifestyle

Our exchange partners have enjoyed the proximity to San Francisco, the Pacific Ocean, the Redwoods and the Sierra mountains. Many have planned a tour that encompasses all those spots and Yosemite.

We live within one hour of 250 wineries so almost all our guests have a wine tour (or two) as their priority.

We like variety: cities, countryside, shopping – but not too much, museums, art and music festivals. Our pleasures in travel? Surprise and adventure.
