Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Centrally located home in a great neighbourhood. Beautiful well tended garden which was featured on the annual charity tour for the Victoria Hospice a few years ago. It has an automatic sprinkler system so no plant care is needed. Large deck with natural gas grill outside kitchen door. Lovely views of surrounding area. Plenty of outdoor areas for relaxing in both sun and shade. We have a fabulous natural gas outdoor fireplace in the garden to enjoy on a cool evening + extra seating around a propane fireplace on the deck. We love our outdoor areas and spend much of our time outside. Fully equipped kitchen; two bedrooms each with queen beds; satellite tv; comfortable family room with electric fireplace; living room with natural gas fireplace.

There is a separate entrance self contained one bedroom suite with a queen bed on the ground floor. It has a living area, beautiful kitchen and bathroom. It is perfect for non simultaneous exchanges. Depending on the size of your party, you can stay in the main house or the suite. For simultaneous exchanges, you have access to both areas. So in total we have three bedrooms, three bathrooms and two kitchens.

Laundry with washer, dryer and laundry tub is accessible from both areas.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

This is a lovely area with miles of trails and parkland just behind our home. Our neighbours are friendly and helpful. We love the convenience of our location. Within a five minute walk is a large shopping area with grocery store, liquor store, bookstore, pharmacy, restaurants, neighbourhood coffee shop, hairdresser, dentist, medical clinic and much more. Also within walking distance: recreation centre with pool and library and many casual and fine dining restaurants. There is a neighbourhood pub across from the bus stop 3-5 minute walk. There are numerous walking trails that literally go for kilometres throughout the entire Greater Victoria area. We consider our neighbourhood to be a hidden gem in the Victoria area.

Attractions

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

We are about 15 minutes by car to the world famous Butchart Gardens via a lovely country road with farm stands and country markets.
15 minutes west will take you to the TransCanada Highway to drive "up island" to the towns of Duncan, Chemainus (world famous murals) or Coombs- on the way to the Pacific coast towns of Ucluelet and Tofino with kilometres of sandy beaches.
15 minutes in the other direction takes you to our beautiful Inner Harbour featuring our Legislative Building (stunning at night with the thousands of lights), fantastic Royal BC Museum, The Empress Hotel, funky shops, pubs and restaurants. From the Inner Harbour you can go on an Orca whale tour, or take a salmon fishing tour, take an overnight trip to Seattle Washington via the catamaran or take a day trip on the ferry to Port Angeles Washington.
During the summer months there are always events happening in the downtown area, such as the Dragon Boat Festival, Buskers Festival, The Symphony Splash and so much more.
