Our home is in a residential subdivision minutes from the quaint downtown of Flagstaff, Arizona (30-40 minute walk). Local bus service is available but limited. Stops are 7-10 minutes from home. Our home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac street. Flagstaff is a mountain community with many local items of historical, cultural and natural interest. The town sits in the middle of one of the largest contiguous ponderosa pine stands in the world. The Northern Arizona University campus is a 15 minute walk from the home.
My wife and I will be traveling through Germany, Austria and Italy from April to mid-May. We are in our late 30s, professionals and without children, yet. Our home is one of our most cherished things, next to our families who live in the mid-west United States. We are excited at the prospect of exchanging our lovely home for one in Italy for a week. Due to insurance liability restrictions, we are unable to offer a car exchange. A one week rental (mid-sized) car rents for around $269/week with a pick up at the Phoenix airport (2 hrs driving).
