We have a large almost 3500 sqft home to swap! Enjoy 5 large bedrooms and 4 ample bathrooms, along with a screened pool. The home comfortably sleeps 7. The downstairs is bright and sunny. You can enjoy your morning coffee sitting by our fully enclosed swimming pool. While preparing meals, you can enjoy a view of the pool and our wooded back yard from the open kitchen. We have a large dining table that seats 8, plus a table for 5-6 in the kitchen and additional bar stools to use for additional seating.

The downstairs features a split floor plan with a large master suite with tub and separate shower. Three more bedrooms and 2 more bathrooms are on the main level, along with a laundry room, main living area, and office. Upstairs we have a large family room with a tv, a bedroom, and bathroom.

This is a totally NON-smoking property with no smoking allowed in the house or on the property. Our home has a screened in pool, so we would prefer someone with experience taking care of pools. We have a great neighborhood with lots of kids and friendly neighbors.

There are lots of things to do in the area from Busch Gardens and Adventure Island theme parks within 30-40 min and Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando and SeaWorld being 1-1.5 hours away. There’s also the Tampa Zoo, aquarium, MOSI science museum and Glazer’s Children’s museum. The beaches are 45+ min away and everything you could need to shop for is nearby in Brandon or more exclusive shops in Tampa. We have Publix, Sprouts, Fresh Market, Walmart and Winn Dixie within 7 minutes of our home. If you enjoy eating out, there are restaurants of all types including authentic Mexican or Cuban cuisine, Thai, Indian, Italian, Greek and more. There’s also plenty of sporting events, concerts, and plays for every taste.

You will need a vehicle as public transportation is not very close by. The area does have a bus line, but we’re not very familiar with it.

Ideally, we would like to swap with a family who has a home large enough for our family. We have 5 children who will be traveling with us. We do have 2 cats, Luna, a Siamese who doesn’t “talk” like Siamese cats normally do, and Phineas, a funny tabby who loves to stare down lizards he can see outside the windows. They are friendly and will love anyone who feeds them. We’ve tried to train them as best as you can train cats. 🙂 We also have as 2 parakeets who need to be kept away from curious kitties.

We have kids from 19 down to 5, so we have lots of books, toys, games, etc, as well as bikes. Our youngest 2 are boys, so we have lots of Legos and toy cars. We have a small travel cot/playpen for babies and very young toddlers and a booster seat for eating, as well as child-friendly utensils and plates and cups. However, if there is anything we don’t have that you need, Walmart is about 7 minutes away by car.

Our kids are very well behaved and we take very good care of other people’s homes when we rent and do housesitting. We do have references available.

Currently we are looking for a long-term US based swap, preferably in the southern US if during winter months. We’re Floridians who like being reasonably warm all year long. 🙂

We may be open to swaps over 5 days in Europe, but may consider longer swaps in Mexico, Colombia, Chile or other South American countries. We do not wish to swap for Asian, Australian or African countries at this time.
