My home is situated nearby freeways and several downtowns in the Bay Area, including San Francisco and San Jose. There are also getaway locations in all directions within two to three hours drive. Wine country, gold country, skiing, fishing, hiking, surfing, golfing, motorcycling, bike riding, camping, artist areas, beaches, coast drives, are all of the highest quality locations within reach in less than a day from my house. I live in a quiet apartment with a gated carport. It's clean! I ride motorcycle and I would consider swapping motos as a part of the exchange.
My hood is awesome and quiet. You will love that it's so close to the downtowns within the bay area without all the noise of a downtown street.
I am a well-travelled and expereienced home trader. I have stayed in Quebec, Australia (twice), Tahoe, Monterey, Santa Cruz, Puerto Vallerta, and Canada all with home trades. I know how to leave the place looking nice and clean and I leave plenty of local info books and brochures. I may even leave my computer for you if arranged.
I am a school counselor in a publich high school. I get lots of time off and that makes me very flexible with vacation timing.
My biggest hobby is motorcycle riding.
