About our home

Our house is in a small town named Takoma Park, just over the DC line. We are close to the Washington Metro and about 20 minutes from downtown on the red line, about 1/2 hour by car. Our home is comfortable, spacious and recently renovated. We have three bedrooms upstairs and a comfortable fold-out couch that sleeps two in the living room. Our house has a modern kitchen, and backyard with deck, screened in porch and driveway. We have an HD TV with Roku and wi-fi.


More about us

  1. We are Paul and Laura and we have two daughters, Nesha and Lena ages 20 & 16--the photo is about a decade old but we like it. We love traveling and have taken our daughters on 4 vacations outside the states. Before they were born we traveled around the world for a year. Consequently, we are enthusiastic hosts and are longstanding members of SERVAS, an international homestay organization. So we are excited to explore home exchange as another alternative form of travel. We would love to open are home to those who wish to explore the DC area. Paul is an art historian who works at the Smithsonian and Laura is an organization development specialist for a Science Research foundation.

Where is it?


The neighborhood is friendly with easy access to two bike/walking paths, playgrounds, etc. Our neighbors across the street are also members of Homes for Exchange and are happy to assist fellow members visiting us. We have done two home exchange in the past and really enjoyed it. Our little town is interesting with lots of local character incl. farmers' market, food co-op, small downtown shopping area, parks, bike paths, and easy access to DC.
