“We had a great time in Mark and Rhonda's property in Carmel Valley. They looked after us with great communication, loan cars, a property caretaker and advice. But their house was fantastic, just a great place to stay and base to explore the valley. Thank you so much!”
Mark's reviewsAs a host (5)
“We had a truly fabulous time in California staying at Marks home. In a great location - we also explored Yosemite, Nappa, Sonoma and the coast during our stay. We enjoyed plenty of time relaxing in a hammock in their gorgeous home/garden which has lots of lovely spots to chill out in and also had BBQs and drinks round the fire pit. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to do a swap with these guys you will not be disappointed. ”
“We feel extremely lucky to have swapped with Mark and Rhonda for a lovely weekend trip. Their home is stunning, and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed sitting outside under the oaks, listening to birdsong, watching hummingbirds and butterflies, and eating al fresco. It's hard to choose a favorite aspect of their beautiful home (the peaceful and luxurious bedroom, the glorious shower with a large window overlooking the trees, the garden where my daughter swears she saw a fairy!) but I think the kitchen wins. Oh my, just to make the coffee each morning was a little taste of heaven. To summarize: being in Mark and Rhonda's home, with its delightful decoration and modern conveniences made us all smile just to be there. Thank you both, we would love to swap again in the future!”
“My only disappointment with Mark and Rhoda's home was that we is that we had to leave early to go to a funeral. The picture in the listing doesn't do it justice. It is much bigger than it looks. It is the most charming house I've ever been in. The road in is under a canopy of huge eucalyptus trees and the house sits in the palms of a couple of very large live oaks making you feel like you are in a tree house. It is not a house for a minimalist for likes lots of white walls. Instead they are collectors who have the creativity to put it all together. Mark was very easy to communicate with both by email and phone. I highly recommend them as exchangers and envy anyone who gets the opportunity to stay in their home. ”
“We had a wonderful fist swap at Mark and Rhonda's property in Carmel. The place is in fact much nicer and larger than the photos show. The house was clean, the property was beautiful, and the location was very good. We drove into Carmel easily a few times, spent time in Carmel Valley at the assorted restaurants there, took a hike at the big state park, and were impressed by the array of activities nearby, from spas to wine tours to hourseback trips to golf. We also found Mark and Rhonda to be gracious and conscientious guests. Our house was in perfect order upon our return. ”
