About our home

We are a family of 4 looking to do a week (7-12 days) long vacation house swap with another family close to a lake or beach, or in a European Location. Looking for April 2015 (Europe or Caribbean) or Summer 2015.

We have a brand new 2013 built 5 bed / 3.5 bath 3500 squ ft home. We have a lovely open floor plan and a huge L-shaped deck that looks out into our garden. Our house is in Evanston, walking distance to Northwestern University, the lake (great beach with kayak and paddle board rental)and Downtown Evanston (12 minutes) for dinner, night life and shopping. Very quick 20 minutes by Metra to downtown Chicago. It's a very kid friendly space and we are across the street from an amazing park (Playground for kids and tennis courts).

We would also consider a non-simultaneous swap if you are interested in Thanksgiving or Christmas 2014.
