Flat in Boston, USA

We are beginning to look into options for between 2 and 4 weeks during the summer of 2014. The best dates for us (at this point) would probably be somewhere between mid-June and the first week of July, though we will consider other offers in July and perhaps into the first week of August. We have arranged two exchanges through Intervac and would be happy to provide references.

We are two writers (Pablo is also a professor at Emerson College) looking for a home exchange. Our preference for this year (2014) is for an apartment in Spain, Italy, or England (near London). We would also consider Portugal, France, or the Greek islands or other locations.  
Our historic brick condominium is located in the desirable South End neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, theaters, and public transportation.  Boston has train and bus connections to New York City. We can also offer a car exchange. We own a 2012 Toyota allowing access to the villages, beaches and mountains of picturesque New England.
The condominium is located on two levels with major living areas on the first level and sleeping areas on the ground level with washer and dryer access in the building.  Grocery stores, pharmacies and other conveniences are within easy walking distance. The South End is known for its quaint Victorian rowhouses and for its central location to all of Boston's major attractions. Our place is not suited for very young children. It would also work best for a couple (sharing a queen-size bed) and one other person (who could use the second small bedroom).

Somos dos escritores (Pablo es un profesor universitario) que buscamos un intercambio de hogar. Nuestra preferencia es por un apartamento en España, Italia, Mexico, Portugal, y Francia o las islas de Grecia, aunque consideraremos otros países. 
Nuestro condominio es parte de un edificio histórico en el apreciado barrio de South End en Boston, Massachusetts, a unos pasos de una gran variedad de tiendas, restaurantes, teatros y transporte público, con acceso a comunicaciones ferroviarias y de bus a la ciudad de Nueva York. Tenemos un auto Toyota 2012 que les permitira viajar por Nueva Inglaterra y visitar sus bellos pueblos.
El condominio es de dos niveles con sala, cocina y comedor en el primer nivel y los dormitorias en la planta baja. Hay acceso a lavadora y secadora de ropas en el edificio. A tres cuadras del edificio hay un supermercado bien surtido, además de farmacias y otras conveniencias. El South End es conocido por sus casas de estilo victoriano y por su cercanía a las atracciones y sitios históricos de esta bella ciudad.
