About us:

We are a Married couple with a 3 year old Daughter.  I am semi retired from my job as a Management Consultant.  

My Wife Amanda and I have traveled widely in the US & love to be in Florida, Daytona area if possible, but would consider other areas/States or other Countries as listed.

We would like a 4 week swap, but will consider shorter or longer stays.

A pool home would be great, but not essential.

This is our main residence. We maintain a clean organized home and will treat yours as we do ours
