THOUGH WE DIDN’T MAKE MANY EXCHANGES THROUGH INTERVAC (account remained dormant for years as far-away travels with small kids was hard and we rented via Airbnb) WE ARE EXCHANGING IN NEW YORK AND FRANCE IN 2018. I can provide these references or from several Airbnb rental references we have over the years.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
- Very safe and friendly neighborhood with parks and playgrounds for kids, grocery stores, restaurants are nearby
- A large Vietnamese Center is also within walking distance, along with great restaurants
- There is a hiking/bike trail nearby that can take you to D. C. Center and monuments if you choose to bike (we have 4 bikes - 2 for kids and 2 for adults)

HOME INTERIOR DETAILS FOR LEVEL ONE:
- open and bright entry-foyer when you walk in the front door
- open style gourmet kitchen with a large island, extra large refrigerator and freezer
- state of the art induction cooking range, 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers (chef’s kitchen because we like to cook with family)
- large family room right next to the kitchen with tv and comfortable seating, making it perfect for spending quality time with family
- nicely decorated living room
- small den with video game (Xbox) console, games, tv - perfect for kids or adults; this room also has a sleeper sofa (sleeps 1 person)
- brand new common bathroom (see pictures)

HOME INTERIOR DETAILS FOR LEVEL TWO:
- Four large bedrooms with double or king size beds to sleep at least two people in each room
- bedroom #1 has king size bed and ensuite bathroom plus shower
- bedroom #2 has queen size bed
- bedroom #3 is our son’s room with a twin daybed that has a pull-out trundle twin bed underneath, so will sleep two people (kids love this!)
- one more full bathroom with shower that is commonly shared (total two bathrooms upstairs, one shared and one ensuite)

OUTSIDE/FRONT AND BACK:
- Nice size backyard with a deck that goes along the entire back of the house, so nice to relax there in good weather (with gas grill for grilling
- Large front yard (see the snow covered picture from winter)

THINGS TO DO/ACTIVITIES AND LOCAL ACCESSIBILITY
- Since our house is near the Metro (local train) it is only 15-20 min from all the monuments like the White House, Smithsonian museums and the National Gallery. The nearest Metro station from the house is an 8-minute walk
- Georgetown, where many restaurants, shopping and famous people’s homes (The Clintons, Elizabeth Taylor and Jackie Kennedy owned homes here at some point) - this is 10-15 minutes from our house

About Our Family

We are a family of four with two kids: 12 year old girl and 9 year old boy. We are originally from Nepal but call the Washington DC area home now. We are both professionals working in the social sector. We love to travel and looking to exchange for 2-4 weeks in the Spring (March 26-April 2) and summer (July-August) of 2018. We would love to go somewhere warm in the US for Spring Break and to Europe in the summer.
