Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Welcome to beautiful Victoria, BC, Canada. Our lovely, very private family home sits on 1 acre of partially wooded property and is situated 30 minutes from downtown. It is surrounded by gardens but also has West Coast forest and a tree house/yoga room. We're 15 minutes from the world famous Butcharts Gardens. There are stunning West Coast beaches to explore, lakes and rivers to swim in, mountains and hills to be hiked and wineries to be enjoyed. Our 2 sons have grown up and moved out and so we are keen to explore the world. Our family home is on a single level, with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and has been fully updated on a quiet cul-de-sac with complete privacy.

David and I have done lots of travelling during our 33 year marriage including the USA, Europe and Africa. Thirell is retired and we have lots of flexibility in terms of dates and availability. We are open to considering all options.
