Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Kitsilano is a special neighbourhood of Vancouver, on the ocean and very close to downtown. It is a unique place - famous for its beach and for beautiful trees lining the streets. In Kitsilano people walk or bike everywhere. 'Kits' has an ambiance of hippy mixed with sophisticated. It is here where Greenpeace was founded and after WW2 many Greek immigrants moved here, explaining the Greek deli, bakery and restaurants. In summer there are many outdoor festivals nearby - Greek Days and the folk music festival. Kits is also home to the original lululemon store and yoga. Plenty of similar unique stores, cafes and restaurants abound. You don't need a car here...simply stroll or cycle the seawall along the beach and enjoy the gorgeous views of the mountains and perfect sunsets. In winter there is good skiing nearby. In summer you simply do not want to go inside...

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Looking for a non-simultaneous exchange or house sitters from 23 Dec 2022 to 5 Jan 2023 as we will travel elsewhere.

Looking for 2-3 weeks in July or August 2023 in Europe, Scandinavia, or elsewhere. Looking for exchanges closer to home in Pacific Northwest or elsewhere in Canada for shorter stays.

We have done home exchanges in Canada and Europe and will look after your place as if it is our own and expect the same courtesy in return.

Our children will likely not travel with us. We have a very gentle cat, Krissi, who will remain home and needs to be fed.
