Our home

Our home is a recently renovated, 90 year old ocean view cottage on almost an acre of land with large trees. There are 2 large decks overlooking the land and the ocean with Vancouver island in the distance. As this is to be our retirement home it is beautifully designed for 2 people to live in. With a large luxurious bathroom and a very large bedroom with fireplace and ocean view. The kitchen is modern and well organised. The decor has a west coast feel and there are nice old rugs on the wooden floors.Lots of windows, skylights and large glass doors let in plenty of light. It is conveniently located in a small village, with a store/cafe, restaurant and pub with music sometimes. The ferry terminal is a few hundred meters down the road to take you to Vancouver island. The sunset beach is only about 200 meters away. My neighbors are all great friends and will probably want to socialise with you.

Who we are

  1. HI! were Candy and Paul. We're just past middle age and our 3 children are all grown up. Paul is a musician and producer in the TV and Movie biz and I am an interior decorator. We love to travel, and take trips every year for 2 or 3 months. We like exotic places like Morroco, Thailand or Ghana but we know that all places have something to offer and are open to any area.
    We have never done a house swap but we can see that this is a good way to cut travel costs and experience someone elses life. Anyone trading houses with us would also experience the amazing community of the island we live on.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Saltspring Island is large treed island with small mountains and many lakes. It's amazing location in the Georgia straight make it a quick hop to Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle. An ideal location for visiting the West Coast. The island is a magnet for artists, musicians, writers etc. and is a forerunner in the alternate lifestyles movement. The climate is ideal with no winter to speak of, a very Mediteranean climate. There are hundreds of island nearby. Every activity imaginable is within 100km's. Nice art galleries, studio tours and lively music scene.
