Where we want to go

From one of our three patios/decks, we see Downtown Vancouver, the fabulous Coastal Mountains, and the Ocean with the Gulf Islands as a backdrop. We have over 2,000 square feet including the outside "living" area. Many of our exchangers have stated that ours has been their favorite!

= marks the location of this home
Although we are close to the beach and 10 minutes to a natural forested area, we are also really close to some of the most chique shopping in Canada. This is the home of LuluLemon, with it's original store 5 minutes away. Buses take you anywhere in the City. There is a skytrain (metro), to and from Downtown and the airport. Seattle is just over 2 hours; The Rockies are 5 hours by car or train, and Whistler/Blackcombe are just over an hour.
Something about ourselves
We are a semi-retired couple who love to travel and have had many successful exchanges around the world. We like animals and well-behaved kids. We don't like smoking inside, outside is O.K.
