About Me
I recently retired from my position as Coordinator of the Disabled Student Services program, but remain involved as a mentor and consultant at the state level. My wife and I enjoy traveling and are open to any destination. At this time we are considering trades of 2 to 4 weeks. We have done month long trades to Ireland, Israel, England and Chile and look forward to new adventures.

During June 2016 we stayed at Lisa and Jim Gioia’s house in Pleasanton, CA, as part of our first house trade arranged through Sabbatical Homes. Lisa and Jim were a very nice couple who were interested in making their third house and car trade with us in Chile. It was an amazing experience for us. We enjoyed their comfortable and beautiful house, garden and their beautiful neighborhood. Lisa and Jim were very welcoming. We had the opportunity to move around visiting San Francisco and around the Bay Area and also enjoy Pleasanton’s city center, parks, and neighboring towns. We enjoyed visiting some nice and exotic restaurants and two summer concerts in the park. It was a wonderful experience, and we heartily recommend anybody to trade their homes with Lisa and Jim.

Our swap to Jim & Lisa's house in Pleasanton was all we hoped it would be ...and more. We had a wonderful month there and enjoyed their lovely , comfortable home and really beautiful garden. San Francisco is a very easy commute on the Bart. It also gave us the opportunity to visit the local wine region and Napa Valley and Sonoma. They have very friendly and generous neighbours who helped to make our stay even better. Jim and Lisa were great to deal with. Excellent Sean O'M 7/19/2014 6:50:00 PM
This home exchang with the Gioia's was such a great experiance for us! They did every thing so we will feel welcome!! Their beautiful house, their charming garden, even their terrific negibors made our stay a wonderful vacation. Thank you Lisa and James. Excellent sarah lazar 8/16/2011 1:16:00 AM
We thoroughly enjoyed our home exchange and found the house to be very comfortable and well equipped. We loved the wonderful garden, hot tub and BBQ and we appreciated all of the advice regarding local trips, restaurants and areas of SF which we would never have found by ourselves. We are also grateful for the thoughtful touches such as leaving small toys for our son to play with. Our house was well cared for while we were away and there were no problems atall. We had a fantastic experience of home exchange that will be hard to beat! Excellent Lesley Henderson 9/6/2010 3:04:00 AM
