Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our townhouse is part of a 4-plex on a quiet, tree lined street. It is 2 levels, with a modern kitchen, livingroom, dining room and bathroom on the main floor, and 2 bedrooms and another bathroom on the second floor. Our unit is in the back, away from the street. We have a small fenced yard and garden with space to seat 4 people to enjoy meals and just relax. The North Shore mountains are a short drive away, and Whistler Mountain, site of 2010 Olympics is less than 2 hours by car. Excellent hiking, walking, water sports, beaches, dining, shopping and theaters all within walking distance.
Our children are grown so we are flexible with timing and location. Feel free to propose something, we are open to ideas.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

Are children are grown so we are flexible with timing, however we do not like to travel out of country during the summer months. We sometimes do non-simultaneous when we plan to be on another trip, we are open to suggestions. In 2021 we are focusing on traveling within our province. We have a resident dog and cat, pet care for the cat is required, the dog is taken care of by friends (unless you want to experience a cuddly energetic dog). We can easily arrange to have the cat cared for if you plan to be away from the house for several days. We are happy to take care of your pets and plants. Our house is compact, suitable for 1 or 2 couples or a family with one child. We have had exchanges to Adelaide, Australia, Strasbourg, Ascain and Bourgogne , France, Cobh Ireland, Portland, Oregon, Mexico and Tucson.
