= marks the location of this home
We live in West Vancouver, which is like living in a small town within a larger city. It has the most expensive real estate in Canada. We`are very close to the mountains, where some of the Olympic events happened, the beaches,and Stanley Park. There is great walking along the West Vancouver Sea`Wall. It is a very short drive or bus to many attractions and nightlife downtown. Easy access to public transportation, although car is available. Short drive to ferries that take you to Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands. Whistler is 80 minutes away by car.
Something about ourselves
I am 45 years old and a teacher at a local high school and my wife is 41 and an instructor at a local university. We have 3 children, who are 13, 11 and 10 years old. We`are very active in many sports and enjoy hiking as a family. We did our first exchange in Switzerland in 2010 and really enjoyed it. We are responsible people and will take good care of your home.
