A spacious townhouse in the San Francisco Bay area

Welcome to our home-exchange web page. We are Fred, a retired financial planner, and Cathy, a physician who loves practicing medicine and may never retire. We like to travel extensively worldwide. Very often our Irish relatives, Brendan and Hazel, who are retired teachers, join us on vacation. They live in Dublin, and also own a condo in Greece. These places may be available for exchange (see IE1002 and IE1002GR on this website) if you prefer them to California.

Our home in California is a comfortable townhouse in a gated community. Downstairs is a bright and airy open plan with kitchen, dining area, living room and laundry room. Upstairs we have a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a guest bedroom and separate bathroom. We use the third bedroom as an office, but it also has a couch which folds out to a single bed. There is a loft area set up for relaxed entertainment with a flat screen television, DVR, Netflix, etc. Outside our rear sliding doors is a patio with a gas BBQ which is perfect for outdoor dining.

Los Gatos is a charming town at the foot of the Santa Cruz mountains to the south of the San Francisco Bay area. We have a small shopping center a few hundred yards away which includes a full sized supermarket and a drug store. There are numerous restaurants within a short drive. Local attractions include Winchester Mystery House, various wineries, Big Basin state park with its enormous redwood trees, a number of Spanish Missions, etc. San Francisco, with all its attractions (Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island, Fisherman's Wharf, etc.) is less than 50 miles away, as is Monterey Bay. Longer overnight trips include Yosemite, Sequoia and King's Canyon National Parks, Napa/Sonoma wine country, Calistoga hot springs, Hearst Castle, and much more. We will be glad to email you a list on request.
