Active family of 4 with two young girls age 7 and 10.
Our home is available for exchange for some holiday's and from June through August. We spend most of our summers back east in Rhode Island so swapping coasts would be great.
We are open to all destinations both domestic and international during holiday breaks both summer and winter.
One of our family members is highly allergic to cats so a home where a cat lives would not be an option for us.
We speak English although our girls are learning Spanish and are currently attending a Spanish Immersion elementary school so a Spanish speaking country would be a fun destination to bring the girls.
