Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We live in a lush, quiet, safe and beautiful neighbourhood. You will enjoy walking the streets looking at the gardens and the houses. It's 10 minute walk away to Pacific Spirit Park, a beautiful forest between the city and the University of British Columbia. There are a few children's schools and playgrounds nearby. It's also a 10 minute walk to a large grocery store and coffee shops, and the shopping districts known as Dunbar and Kerrisdale (bakeries, coffee shops, drug stores, restaurants, pubs, clothing stores). The neighbourhood is a mix of all ages. A short drive or bus ride will get you to the beaches, theatres, airport, or downtown, Vancouver.

Attractions

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

Vancouver is always ranked as one of the best places in the world to live. On any given day, you can go for a walk in the Pacific Spirit Park nearby, a large forest full of enormous trees. You can go to any one of the many beaches around the city, and rent a boat or kayak and head out on the water (there is even a nudist beach if that's your thing!). You can head up into the mountains that overlook the city and go skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer. You can drive up to Whistler for the day and see this world-class ski/mountain biking resort. You can go for a walk or cycle around the sea wall in Stanley Park. You can "shop until you drop" downtown Vancouver at Nordstroms, Holt Refrew, and all the popular stores. Or you can sit on the back deck and enjoy the temperate climate, breathe the clean air, watch the birds at the bird feeder, and enjoy the silence.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We would want to exchange with people for whom courtesy is priority - keeping each others houses clean, communicating quickly and clearly with any concerns or incidents, honouring commitments. We have allergies to animals, so would not be able to host cats or dogs. We have a trampoline for the kids, which they use at their own risk! If it's a very dry summer, we would ask you to water the plants a few times a week.
