Cleveland Park North is a very safe, pretty, convenient and international upper northwest neighborhood with several wonderful parks and outdoor cafes. It is a family friendly area with lovely homes and a great sense of community.
The most famous city landmarks are easily accessible by Metro and virtually all of them have free admission including the White House, US Capitol, Smithsonian Institution Museums, Washington Monument, Lincoln, Jefferson and Vietnam Memorials, and the National Botanical Gardens. Downtown is just four stops from our house on the Red Line. There are also several bus routes near our home that go to various parts of the city including Georgetown (very popular for shopping, dining and nightlife) which is not accessible by Metro.
We are a professional couple in our fifties.

Sheri grew up in Oregon and works as an educational administrator directing summer programs for a suburban school district.
She has lived in Europe, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
We enjoy traveling with our golden retriever and are interested in pet-friendly exchange homes within driving distance of DC for long week-ends. We would also like to take one or two trips abroad in April and/or September-October, preferably to the Mediterranean or the Caribbean.
April is cherry blossom season in DC. It is one of the most pleasant and beautiful times of the year to visit. September days are long and warm but not humid like in summer. Fall in Washington is also cheaper and significantly less crowded.
We are open to the idea of an auto exchange but given our proximity to two Metro stations and multiple bus lines, a car is not necessary. For travel outside DC, both trains and buses offer frequent, economical and quick access to New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore. Ocean beaches and skiing are each within a 2.5 hour drive.
If you're interested in our home but don't see the dates you're looking for in our calendar, please contact us as we have some flexibility with our schedules. We also have a condo in Bethany Beach, Delaware which is listed on Airbnb for rent but if you are interested in it please let us know and we might be able to work out an exchange (www.airbnb.com/rooms/17776932.).
