Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our comfortable home is situated on a peaceful 1/2 acre in a lovely country setting. We have gardens in the front and backyards and a small fish pond. Close to nature, sometimes you’ll see (or hear) bald eagles, herons, racoons, deer, owls, kingfishers, etc.

Inside the house, the main bathroom (tub & rain shower) and kitchen have been recently renovated, as has the master bedroom which features a sunken ThermalMasseur bathtub, gas fireplace, king-size bed, wide screen HD TV with home theatre system, a walk-in shower & toilet. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed. A computer, WI-FI, BBQ & exercise equipment are available for your use during the exchange. We have lived here 27 years & have friendly, helpful neighbours.

Vancouver Island boasts pristine natural beauty, old growth forests, wildlife, Pacific Rim National Park, picturesque beaches & stunning coastlines and the capital city of British Columbia (Victoria). You'll find it all right here!

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

You'll find attractions & activities galore minutes from home on the Saanich Peninsula and in downtown Victoria (about a 30 minute drive away). With the mildest climate in Canada, we live in one of our country’s top tourist areas. Hike, bike, golf, play tennis, sail or kayak year round, all within a 10-15 minute drive. Visit museums, gardens, wineries, breweries, a gin distillery, Legislative Buildings, galleries, etc. Go to the theatre, cinema or have afternoon tea at the Empress Hotel. Whale watch, fish or sail on our nearby waters or enjoy beautiful waterfront strolls.

The 29km Lochside Regional Trail which meanders from Victoria to Sidney through rolling farmlands, forests & along shorelines is easily accessed minutes from our home. This trail hooks up with the 55km Galloping Goose Trail stretching from Victoria to Sooke. More great hiking trails only minutes away are found in John Dean Provincial Park, Tod Inlet, etc.
