About our home

We live in an charming Victorian bungalow that was built in 1913. We remodeled it a few years ago in order to update the kitchen/dining/bathroom area while keeping the original charming aspects of the house in tact. Our kitchen and dining room look out to a spacious fenced patio and garden area. We are very proud of our gardens and enjoy entertaining friends and family in our backyard. Our downstairs has a very comfortable living room, additional sitting room, a den, bedroom and one and 1/2 bathrooms. The two bedrooms upstairs have a double bed in one room and a queen bed in the other room. We have a half bathroom upstairs and carpeting in the upstairs bedrooms.

More about us

  1. Jenny was a teacher/librarian and Gary owned a business fabricating hot rod cars. Both of us are now retired.

  2. We have done over 20 successful house exchanges all over the world and are very experienced at swapping homes and treating them as our own.

  3. Our first house exchange 12 years ago in Bath, England resulted in our exchange partners moving to Santa Cruz permanently and purchasing a house in our neighborhood because they loved the area so much. We have become very good friends!

Where is it?


Santa Cruz is 65 miles south of San Francisco, an hour and 15 minute drive along the scenic coast highway. We are also located 40 miles north of the beautiful Monterey and Carmel area. Our home is located in a very friendly neighborhood that is one of the most desirable areas in Santa Cruz. We are a short walking distance from the best of Santa Cruz - beautiful sunny beaches, the yacht harbor, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, downtown, and so many fabulous restaurants and shops. Santa Cruz also offers many outdoor activities such as surfing, fishing and boating, and hiking in amazing redwood forests - all short distances from our house. There are many art galleries, music venues, wineries, theatrical productions as well as museums to visit. Our town has a multitude of activities for adults and children and is within easy drives to all of the things that San Francisco and Monterey have to offer.
