Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Spacious, oceanfront house on beautiful Saratoga Beach, on Vancouver Island, 20 minutes North of Comox Airport. If you're driving and taking the ferry, it's about 3 hours from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. Our home is recently renovated to a high standard, but the real star is the spectacular location and incomparable views! Our home features two new bathrooms and a new gourmet kitchen with state of the art cooking appliances. We have heated floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. There is a wood burning fire to burn on cooler nights, an outdoor fire table, as well as a hot tub, perfect for star gazing. We also have an outdoor shower, to get rid of the sand and salt after a long day at the beach. We have kayaks, an inflatable boat, bicycles, badminton and bocce. Or have a snooze in our hammock. It is a perfect, beautiful and serene getaway, yet it is only 20 minutes away from an airport, or if you prefer, you can go more slowly via car and ferry - also a beautiful experience. It is a 30 minute drive to the top of Mount Washington - great for walking/hiking in the Summer, or skiing/snowshoeing in the Winter. So much here to do and see!

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our neighbourhood is quiet but friendly, with a small shopping plaza just a few minutes away by car or bike. The waterfront is well used by kayakers, fishermen and beachcombers, but you could never describe it as busy. Most of the lots on the water side of the street are half an acre, providing lots of privacy. We like to call it, Heaven on Earth. We are half an hour away from Campbell River and Comox/Courtenay. Twenty minutes from the Comox Airport which makes us very accessible.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Our waterfront IS the main attraction! There are places to go for food and drink, but our magnificent view makes hanging out on our waterfront deck our favourite activity by far. We have kayaks, and an inflatable boat. We have croquet, badminton and bocce balls, to name just a few fun things to do. In the evening, we like to have a beach bonfire now and then, as we watch the cruise ships go by. Ahhh, paradise! Mt. Washington is great for hiking in the Summer, and skiing or snowshoeing in the Winter. There are many walking trails nearby, and there are bikes available as well. In nearby Courtenay/Comox, there are many great restaurants, brew pubs and other eateries. Plus, three wineries nearby! Our local plaza is a five minute drive away at most, and has a very good grocery store with local meat, cheese and produce. As well there's a medical clinic and pharmacy, a pizza place, and a liquor store.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We hope you leave our home looking the way you found it. Smoking is not allowed inside the house, and we ask that you keep our screen doors closed to keep our neighbour's cats out of the house! :) We will leave a clean set of sheets so you can strip and remake the bed(s). In the growing season we may ask you to do some watering in the garden, but 90% of that task is fully automated so the remaining job is very small.
