2020: Our travel plans are all in place 2021: We're open to your suggestions!

Welcome to California!

Greetings Intervac Friends,  

We are BIG fans of home exchange! We love living in your communities, meeting your neighbors, and discovering the beauty, the history and all there is to see and do in your part of the world. And we're so happy to have you and your family staying in our home, going to the beach and exploring San Diego, Southern California and beyond. Isn't it the best way to vacation?

Our Travel Plans
Our plans for 2020 are set, but we're open to your suggestions for 2021 and beyond! We usually exchange for 3 or 4 weeks but we're open to longer exchanges.

Our Home
The house is clean, easy, and relaxing.  You'll be able to settle in quickly and go to the beach!  Our house is completely equipped for your comfort and needs, including Wi-Fi throughout the house. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, an office and a great room downstairs that includes a lounge, dining areas and kitchen. The back patio has a grill and dining table and places to relax in shade and sun.

We are just four miles from downtown Encinitas, Moonlight Beach and the train station. Trains run south to San Diego and north to Orange County, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Francisco and beyond. We're about 20 miles north of San Diego, La Jolla, and Coronado.

Cars
We have a 2017 Honda CRV which seats five comfortably and has plenty of space for luggage or camping equipment. When we're using the Honda on an exchange in the US or Canada, you will have the use of an electric car, a 2011 Nissan Leaf.

Our Community
Encinitas, home of the Surfing Madonna!  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surfing_Madonna)
We live in the beach community of Encinitas, California, 20 miles north of San Diego. Our town has been known for flower growing and surfing for decades. It is a great place to enjoy beaches, parks, lagoon hiking, and relaxing. ( http://www.ci.encinitas.ca.us/index.aspx?page=290 )  And it is a perfect jumping-off point for day trips to all the sights in southern California.

Previous exchange partners have visited the sights in San Diego and driven to Anaheim (in the OC, home of the original Disneyland) and Los Angeles (don't miss the Getty Museum in Malibu), Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, Monterey and San Francisco. Others have traveled to National and State Parks like Yosemite, Big Sur, Death Valley, Kings Canyon, Joshua Tree and Sequoia. The Grand Canyon in Arizona, and beautiful Bryce and Zion National Parks in Utah are within reach, and Las Vegas is on the highway to these natural wonders.

There is so much to enjoy in this area.  Let's talk about your vacation to Southern California and beyond!
