Notes

Our trusted cleaning lady of 10 years comes once per week on Fridays. We prefer to keep her engaged even during our multi-week exchanges, out of respect for her livelihood. If you have a cleaning lady too, we will gladly swap services. Our philosophy is that we do not expect our guests to do extensive cleaning when leaving our home, and we would prefer the same. It should be vacation after all!

Neighbourhood

Tuckahoe is a friendly historic village of 6,000 residents on the edge of the Bronx River. Our quiet, winding street is conveniently located just minutes by foot from all amenities: train station, bus stops, parks, grocery store, shoppes, restaurants, pharmacy, and library. It is also within quick access of major parkways for easy travels to Manhattan, New Jersey (beaches...), Long Island (The Hamptons...), Upstate New York and New England (Boston...). Aside from all New York City offers, there are wonderful activities to do close to our neighborhood as well, such as visiting the Bronx zoo, Botanical Gardens, Bronx River Park, Playland amusement park, Rye beach, Bear Mountain, and numerous hiking, cycling and horseback riding opportunities. Also plenty of cultural and artistic opportunities close by: Dia Beacon, Donald M. Kendall Sculpture Gardens at Pepsico, Pollepel island, Caramoor, Blue Hills at Stone Barns, Pocantico Church, Rockefeller Estate at Kykuit, Untermyer Gardens, Storm King, The Cloisters.

Getting around

Commuting to midtown Manhattan takes 28-45 minutes via commuter train, and the station is a 7 min walk from our home. Fares cost $7-11 per adult each way, and $1 per child under 12yrs old.

We are Julie and Vincent, proud parents of three teenage daughters. We are fans of the home exchange concept because we enjoy the relationship we develop with our fellow exchangers, and prefer to vacation away from touristy crowds. We have been exchanging since 2009. We don’t smoke, and don’t have pets. One of our daughters is allergic to cat hair, therefore for family trips, we cannot accept reciprocal exchanges with homes with indoor cats but we will gladly take care of your plants, gardens and chickens while you are away. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PLEASE NOTE: At the moment, we are only available for a simultaneous one-week in mid-July, ideally in the Pacific Northwest. We won't be traveling to Europe this year. Thank you.
Member description
We are a family in transition at the moment. Our oldest daughter is heading to college in Sept 2019 and our other two children are busy with high school and sports, so family vacations are becoming more and more challenging to organize. We usually find out about our summer family vacation dates later in March or April so we cannot commit early to simultaneous summer plans. At other times of the year, Vincent and Julie can make plans to travel alone while the children are in school, but since we live in our primary home, those exchanges need to be non-simultaneous. We can host 2-3 people in hospitality for short stays while we are home. When we travel, we like to stay in one place to really get acquainted with the area. We do short field trips, and enjoy returning home for a relaxing evening. We like to cook and enjoy a well-equipped kitchen. We are open to most destinations, and when we travel with the family, we favor homes with enough bedrooms to accommodate our three children comfortably, and friends or relatives who may visit us while away.  Reliable and free Wifi is imperative since Julie must tend to her internet business when away. We have nice neighbors who would be happy to to guide you around our neighborhood. We also have many sports connections! Julie is part of a triathlon club, Vincent does martial arts and the girls play football (soccer). If you want a connection to local sports enthusiasts, we'd be happy to introduce you!

Desired destinations


Pacific Northwest (Flexible)
Jul 18 - 25, 2019 (Flexible)
"This is a "working vacation" so we will need access to reliable free Wifi during that time."
