Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

NOTE: we have finalized our plans for summer 2020, so we cannot accept any exchanges for summer of this year.

Located in a quiet corner of one of Vancouver's favourite neighbourhoods close to downtown, our home with its south-exposure and west-facing skylights provides a bright and airy atmosphere in an "Arts and Crafts" character home. The master bedroom (the entire top floor) features its own ensuite bathroom and two desks with a peek-a-boo view over to the North Shore Mountains; one main-floor bedroom has another queen bed and the other has a single day bed with pull-out trundle. The main-floor bathroom has a spa jacuzzi tub to relax in after a day of walking, cycling and exploring Vancouver.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Enjoy these features of our corner of Kitsilano:

Walk 10 minutes to Jericho Beach that links to Locarno and Spanish Banks beaches - easily an hour and a half walk with breathtaking scenery. (see our sunset photo taken from the farthest point of West Spanish Banks). Famous Kitsilano beach is about a 1/2 hour walk.

Cycle 5 minutes to join the cycling paths that will take you around False Creek past Kitsilano Beach, Granville Island, the Olympic Village and Science World as well as around English Bay and Stanley Park to Coal Harbour.

Ride the bus 5 minutes 10 minutes to Pacific Spirit Park and UBC or 20 minutes to downtown and connect easily with Vancouver's Sky Train system: a bus stop serving 4 bus routes is just a few minutes walk from our home.

Stroll along the western end of Broadway (only a two-minute walk away) with its shops, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Some of Vancouver's best restaurants are within walking distance: Tandoori Fusion (Indian), Banana Leaf (Malaysian), La Quercia (Italian), Green Leaf (Sushi), Nat's NY Pizza, and the Kitsilano landmark, The Nam (vegetarian). Don't leave without trying Vancouver's (if not the world's) best gooey cinnamon buns, shipped to other restaurants around Vancouver, but made on site at Grounds for Coffee just a few minutes walk from our home.

Relax on our back deck in our well-treed, secluded back garden or catch some rays on our sunny front porch.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We appreciate a tidy and clean house upon return. Watering house plants and possibly front garden beds if it's hot and dry in the summer would be appreciated. Garbage sorting (compost, recycle, trash) and placing these items in the back alley for collection is required . We will provide a schedule. International calls from our landline may be possible, but we would need to discuss these.

If agreeable, our 27-year-old daughter, who lives with us, could host you (she has a small white West Highland Terrier); but if you prefer to have the house to yourselves, we can arrange for her to live elsewhere during your stay.
We have a pet that will be absent during the exchange
