We are retired health professionals from Vancouver, Canada who are interested in non simultaneous home swaps. We love being in the outdoors in nature - hiking, biking, skiing and being! What we have to offer is a beautiful character home (upper floors of a duplex) in a very desirable part of Vancouver called Kitsilano. It is close to beaches, flat bike paths, grocery stores, restaurants, cafes etc. – everything you might need is within walking and cycling distance. Kits is halfway between the University of British Columbia and downtown Vancouver, close to great bus routes.
We have 3 bikes available and the possible use of a car should you want to venture further away – over to the mountains on the North Shore where there is great hiking, up Howe Sound to Whistler, over to Vancouver Island or the Sunshine Coast by ferry.... so many wonderful places to visit! We also have a tiny cabin, off grid (no running water or electricity) on one of the Gulf Islands which we could make available. It is situated on a mountain overlooking the Salish Sea and is a wonderful place to just peace out in nature.
We are wanting to do some cycling this September/October (2019) on the wonderful bike paths in Southern Germany and Austria and Switzerland. To that end, we are hoping to find a few home swaps for 2 or 3 weeks each between September 20th and October 28th.
We are thinking that people would likely want to visit Vancouver in the Spring and Summer months of 2020 or even 2021. It is NOT available this coming Fall and Winter.
