Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have an exchange for summer 2017.

Our 3 bedroom home is nestled in the woods of North Vancouver. The main floor has a living room, dining room and family room/kitchen. Upstairs you will find the master bedroom (king) and guest bedroom (double) each with their own ensuite bathroom. Our third bedroom is set up as our office/computer room. We have a gym in our basement. Depending on your mood, you can sit out on our front veranda and watch the world pass by or escape into our private back yard with natural gas barbecue, stone patio, raised gardens and water fountain.

Our garden is low maintenance, but during the summer months, some watering might be necessary.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Lynn Valley is a neighbourhood of North Vancouver. Located at the northern edge of Metro Vancouver, it is nestled between the forested slopes of Mount Fromme and Mount Seymour. The area is well known for its natural parks, including Lynn Headwaters Regional Park, the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve and Lynn Canyon Park, whose main attraction is the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge.

An old fashioned corner store/coffee shop is located a short block away.

Our home is 1.5km away from Lynn Valley Town Centre. The centre has all the amenities you will need for your stay.

Vancouver is easily accessed by transit that stops in front of our neighbour's house.

Attractions

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

We are less than a 5 minute walk to three beautiful regional parks. Grouse Mountain is a 10 minute drive.

Vancouver has too many restaurants, shopping areas and attractions to list on this webpage. If you tell us your interests we would be more than happy to provide you with recommendations catered to your interests.

It is a scenic 1.5 hour drive to Whistler, BC. It can be visited in a day, but it would be better suited for a weekend visit. We have a vacation property that is also available for exchange, but it is only suitable for 2 people.

Other easy weekend trips from North Vancouver:
Victoria, BC
Sunshine Coast, BC
Tofino/Pacific Rim National Park
Seattle, Washington (our vehicle for exchange cannot cross Canada/US border).
