As with everyone, our 2020 exchanges were cancelled due to the pandemic. We look forward to exchanges as soon as possible, especially in Paris, a city we long for once again, or Bordeaux. We are also interested in Spain and in Denmark. We are always open to alternative destinations in Europe, including Christmas exchanges. We do enjoy the urban lifestyle, so our preference - though not exclusively - is for larger cities and towns.
Our third floor, fully-renovated, very bright apartment with all modern conveniences and a large private patio is right in the heart of Vancouver's vibrant downtown West End. It has a comfortable and quiet master bedroom with en-suite bath plus a den/office/guest room and second full bathroom. Recently renovated with all new appliances and including a separate in-suite laundry room. While our recommendation is for two people only, the den/office has a fold-out sofa-bed, suitable for one extra person, particularly a teenager. Our computer is equipped with WiFi for internet access, and our entertainment system includes three TVs, a 48" Smart TV in the living area, and smaller wall-mounted models in the master bedroom and den. All are linked together with a 'Gateway' PVR system which allows shows recorded on any one TV to be viewed on every other. The 'Smart' system links the main TV directly to the internet at the push of a button, to provide access to such things as Netflix and YouTube. The building itself is well-maintained, with day time caretaker, and has a well-equipped exercise room, sauna, a games room with ping-pong and social room. There is a lovely ground floor garden with Muskoka chairs around a table around which a small group may chat with a glass of wine. If you google 'Eleven Eleven Haro Street, Vancouver, B.C.', you should find an agent's YouTube presentation about the building itself. It is worth noting that the building by-laws do allow home exchanges.
