We are looking for exchange opportunities in the Victoria, BC region - brief exchanges across Georgia Straight so that we can visit family on the Island. We would like to travel with our quiet, elderly dog and welcome families with pets.
We are not looking for international exchanges at this time.
Comfortable house with mountains (skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, mountain biking) a few minutes to the north and ocean (sea kayaking, beaches, sailing, whale watching, fishing) a few minutes to the south, west and east. Close to downtown Vancouver via one bus and a 15 minute ferry ride, or drive in 30 minutes. Children welcome - we have books, toys and a garden, but the house suits adults as well.
We have a master bedroom with a queen sized bed, a guest bedroom with a single bed that pulls out into a double bed, a basement bedroom with a queen sized bed, and a double and a single futon pullout in the living room.
Our Audi hybrid car is available for a car exchange, and use of a second, electric, car is possible.
We have completed 10 wonderful, successful exchanges with families from Nanaimo, Venice, Germany, Switzerland, England, New Zealand, Australia (one near Brisbane and one near near Melbourne) and Newfoundland.
We have one electric and two conventional adult bikes for exchange partners to use and sea kayaks for use by experienced kayakers.
