Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our comfortable seaview home is in the heart of Mill Bay, a few minutes walk from restaurants, shops, marina and beaches. If you are physically active, this is a great place to come. Hiking trails through forests and up small mountains abound. The ocean is a 10 min. walk away and there are lakes nearby for water sports. When you get tired of having fun, relax on one of our 3 decks or 2 patios with a glass of local wine and enjoy the ocean, flora, fauna and our Bald Eagles and Humming Birds. We are conveniently located in the Cowichan Valley wine country, 35 minutes north of Victoria or one hour south of Nanaimo. We have a gourmet kitchen, bathroom, dining/family room and living room on the main floor. The second floor has full laundry, 2 bedrooms and den with heated floor ensuites and cable TV. The 3rd bedroom is used as an office so not included in the exchange. The bottom of the house has a private walk-out 1 bedroom fully furnished suite.
