ABOUT US:
We are a family of 5 (kids are 8,7 and 3) who LOVE to travel and are hoping to do many home swaps over the coming years. We’d mostly like to swap in warm, beachy locations and cool cities but are open to options so feel free to drop us a line! Self sufficiency is very important to us so we try to grow as much food as we can in the summer and also raise chickens. I grew up all over the world and it is extremely important to me to raise our kids with a world view and to experience other cultures. There are lots more photo’s on our listing on home exchange:

We very much look forward to swapping!

OUR HOME:
Our 3 bedroom (sleeps 7), 3 bathroom, 1828 sq ft home is bright, airy, minimalist and cozy. We are designers and landscapers and our home is our labor of love! Floor to ceiling windows showcase Lake Whatcom from the front and Bellingham bay from the back! Our backyard is a relaxing oasis with sun loungers, a large dining table, tree swing and mini beach/ sandbox area that keeps our kids entertained for hours. In the summer we grow all sorts of fruits and veggies. (This year we have a 6 types of berry’s, tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, eggplant, salad greens, carrots, watermelon, cantaloupe, onions, garlic, asparagus and also several fruit trees still in their early stages). Our intention was to create a tranquil, outdoor space that both kids and grown ups love to hang out. Our neighborhood is quiet so you can hear the birds sing or meditate. We have a two decks and a bar area just outside the kitchen. Plenty of chill out spots ensure that everyone can have their own space! We have a chicken coop with 11 chickens that lay fresh eggs daily. The chickens are enclosed in a spacious chicken run.
