Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our home is perfect for those who want to get away from it all but still be able to have it all within 10 minutes should the mood change. The home is nestled into a quiet cove that appears to be far removed from the city but is actually centrally located. Convenient to buses, bike trails, recreation centre and shopping. The neighbourhood area is a destination in itself with either a beach or park at the end of every street. Easy access to the local attractions of Victoria BC. Some attractions are within walking distance.

We have had a some repeat exchanges so people must be happy with our location. We are surrounded by beautiful scenery in all directions. The home is centrally located so you are able to access all the conveniences of urban living. There is also a recreation centre within a short distance with salt water pools, lazy river, sauna, hot tub and an outdoor kids water park.

We currently do not have any pets. We do have house plants and a yard that needs occasional watering.

We are open for weekend exchanges in Vancouver, Whistler or the Sunshine Coast (all in BC). We are open for Europe in 2020.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Our home may seem like it is 100 Kms from anywhere but it is in right the middle of the city. Only 10 minutes to downtown. The neighbourhood is over 100 years old with homes from just about every decade from the Edwardian era through to the present. Some of the people in the neighbourhood have been here for as many as three generations. Many are retired but living on what was once their parents' property. No one wants to leave! We have lived here for almost all of this current century. We back onto Saxe Point Park. There is a recreation centre about three blocks away. Two groceries stores within walking distance. You can walk to downtown via the West Bay Walkway along the ocean or you can even take a harbour ferry to downtown.
