We brought the world to us over the last several years by being a host family to university and high school students who are here on exchange. Rob has lived in various parts of the world and Justine's background in classical archaeology also allowed her to travel for work. Now we would like to travel abroad and explore with our teenagers, and we sometimes also travel with Rob's mum.
We are happy to share our bikes, canoe, tennis equipment (the courts are across the street) and skateboards while you stay here. We also have an old electric car which can be used for local driving (the range is small).

Descripción de la casa que ofrecemos en intercambio
This mid-century brick bungalow was given a 21-Century second story recently, creating multiple spaces with different looks. Downstairs the rooms are an eclectic open concept peppered with antiques; upstairs is modern, with a large library landing, family rec room (ping-pong and a disco ball!), panoramic sitting area, four teen bedrooms, bathroom, and a master suite with office/dressing room/washroom. We designed the addition to be eco-friendly, with green roof areas and solar panels.
We have two patio areas in our yard; the east side patio under a grape arbor is lovely for morning coffee, and west patio has a built-in bench and a gas BBQ for dining outside.

Descripción de nuestro barrio y la zona en que se encuentra
Our home is located across the street from Exhibition Park, a large green space with an adventure playground, trails and sports fields. The neighbourhood is one of the city's oldest and loveliest, and is a ten minute stroll to the downtown.

Dónde ir y qué hacer mientras se esté en nuestra casa
It is an easy walk (10 minutes) to downtown Guelph, where there is an independent cinema, bookstore, pubs, interesting food, and many small shops. There are trails along the two rivers of Guelph which connect several parks and green spaces. Also downtown along one trail is the River Run Centre, our performing arts space which showcases tours of ballet, music, and other performances. Guelph has a Basilica on its highest point, overlooking the old town and sitting even higher than the University.
