Our home

Our home is bright & inviting. We have 3 bedrooms. A nice south facing kitchen. The dining room overlooks the living room and also has French Doors which lead out to a sun deck overlooking the back garden. You can enjoy breakfast or dinner on the deck smelling the fragrant honeysuckle which blooms for most of the summer. There is a BBQ on the deck also.
We have two living rooms. One on the middle level with TV and Stereo. The other family room is downstairs also with French Doors which lead out into the back garden. Also downstairs is our office and laundry facilitiies. Our yard is somewhat private. We have many trees and perenials and also a small pond with a few fish. The birds love to come and bath in the water.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four, Colin 45, who is a mechanical engineer working with BC Hydro and Holly 47, who is a part time clerk also working for BC Hydro. We have 2 boys aged 13 and 14. We also have two miniature schnauzers that we will have looked after while we are away.
    We love to explore new areas. We have traveled alot throughout Canada and the United States and just last year traveled to England with our two sons and their soccer teams. (23 players and 26 parents). It was a trip all of us will never forget. Colin has been backpacking to Europe in his youth and Holly has been to France just once and fell in love with the culture and landscape. We love the outdoors. Hiking & cycling. All of our family also plays soccer. Our boys are at the perfect age now to see and learn all about the different culutres and history Europe has to offer.
    Ideally we would like a few 2 week exchanges in France or Italy or Spain if it is possible.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our home is situated in a quiet neighborhood we easy access to the major routes to Vancouver, the US Border and the Tsawassen Ferry Terminal.
We are located 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver, Granville Island Market, beaches, Stanley Park night life etc... 20 minutes from the Vancouver Airport. Richmond is an Island at the mouth of the Fraser River. We are are a 10 minute walk to the Fishing Village of Steveston where in the summer you can buy fresh salmon and shrimp from the fishing boats at the docks. There are many lovely shops and great restaraunts in Steveston. If you enjoy cycling, riding the dike that surrounds Richmond is a great way to spend the afternoon, or evening and watch the sun go down. We are 40 minutes from the US Boarder and 3 hours to Seattle Washington. Also, the Vancouver Island Ferry Terminal is 20 minutes away. The Ferry trip is a scenic 90 min ride. The famous West Coast of Vancouver Island - Tofino & Long Beach is a must see. It is a good day's travel but well worth the trip. It offers surfing, whale watching, kyaking & beautiful scenery. Whistler Resort Village, where the 2010 Olympic Games are being held is just 2 hours drive. Shops, mountain biking and hiking. On the way to Whistler you pass through Squamish which is a world renown rock climbing destination. We are truly lucky to live in such a wonderful area.
