Home exchange or rent: our house near Berkeley CA for nearby mountain or beach

I'm an editor for Nature magazine and had been hoping to return to the UK to work out of our main office during the summer of 2020. Those plans are now off, obviously!

Our house is in Albany California, very close to the Berkeley border. UC Berkeley is within an easy bike ride or pleasant 30-minute walk. BART is about a 20-minute walk, and there are two bus lines nearby that go straight into San Francisco.

Our house is about 80 m2, with two small bedrooms and an open living-dining-cooking room. Although small, it feels open and warm. The kitchen is well-kitted for serious cooking, and we have lots of toys that would appeal to ~ 8-yr-olds. There's also a detached studio with another bathroom, kitchenette, sleeping loft, and home theater.

The neighborhood is fantastic. Within walking distance you'll find world-class food shopping, a huge variety of restaurants (many of which are open for takeout), coffee shops, and parks.

Given the COVID-19 situation we are not keen to fly anywhere. But we would be interested in a home on the beach or in the mountains, for a possible exchange.
