We are located in the West end of Vancouver close to the downtown business area (10 minutes by foot) and one block from the highly regarded Robson St shopping area. There is an incredible variety of restaurants in the immediate vicinity to satisfy all tastes and budgets. There is a large number of foreign students as Vancouver has become a favorite site for learning English. We are a 3 minute walk to the sea wall which has wide lanes for walking, running or cycling along the 20+ miles along the water encircling English Bay, False Creek, and Stanley Park. Magnificent Stanley Park with it's old growth forest, Totem poles, famous aquarium, and many gardens is a 10 minute walk from our door. Vancouver is considered to be one of the most beautiful and desirable cities in the Americas often winning top awards as the best or top 5 by many travel writers or international surveys. It was the site of the most recent highly successful Olympic winter games. Although a very modern and cosmopolitan city it is at the doorstep to some of the most beautiful coastal and mountainous areas in the Pacific Northwest.
Something about ourselves
We are a retired couple in our mid to late 60's. We enjoy food and wine, sports, the theatre and the outdoors. Although we have travelled to many parts of the world in the past, more recently we spend most of time in Mexico during the winters and at our lake house in the interior of BC during the summer. This affords us a great deal of flexibility in arranging an exchange.
