Seattle, USA: House in a wooded setting WITHIN CITY but only a 5 minute walk to a beach

We are available for exchange both off-season & on-season. Since we often do more than one exchange per year, finding a date match with us may be easier than most.

Our well-maintained home is in a quiet woodsy setting. From our front door it is only a 5 minute walk through the forest to Carkeek Beach, yet all city things are nearby, right up the hill. Downtown Seattle is also within easy reach--it's a 20 minute drive from our home. There you can visit Pike Place Market, the Space Needle and Seattle's lovely harbor. Many scenic attractions are within a 2 to 3 hour drive, for example, Canada and Vancouver B.C. to the north or Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens to the south.
BEST OF ALL is Washington's unique and extensive ferry system. You can depart from a variety of Seattle area ferry docks and travel west through beautiful scenery to a wide choice of destinations, including islands, peninsulas, small towns and mountains--great day trips! We provide plenty of maps and brochures to help you get started in your travel plans. Fast unlimited internet access, WIFI, and 2 high-definition TV's are available. We can gladly exchange references. More information and photos can be seen at our web site:  http://picasaweb.google.com/107198733332078903856
Our exchange partners have consistently told us that they really enjoyed their exchanges with us. Sorry, but we are able to communicate in English only (un peu francaise aussi). **** IF YOU WISH TO CONTACT US, YOU MAY FIND IT QUICKER AND EASIER TO EMAIL US DIRECTLY  RATHER THAN THROUGH INTERVAC'S MESSAGE SYSTEM. OUR EMAIL ADDRESS IS:    dgparker@ieee.org       See the adjacent photos of our area and its attractions.

Vårt grannskap

Our street is quiet and peaceful. The neighborhood has lots of tall evergreen trees and is adjacent to Carkeek Park and its beach and trails. There is a bus stop which is a 12 minute walk from our house. Several buses come there between 8-10am to take you to downtown Seattle and there are several to bring you back in the late afternoon. Ferries: Many ferries depart from downtown Seattle as well as from several other locations in the Seattle area such as Edmonds, Mukilteo, and West Seattle. Cars can be taken on the ferries or you can just go as a walk-on passenger.

 We no longer have pets of our own but are very open to caring for the pets of home exchangers during a swap. For instance, on 5 different occasions we have cared for exchangers' cats and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Livsstil

Seattle is nestled between the mountains and the sea.

Ferry rides are a favorite form of transportation and of recreation.
