Our home

Our home is comfortable, light filled and spacious. Off the newly renovated, well equipped kitchen, there is a big deck overlooking a fenced yard. The dining room with a large dining table is adjacent to the kitchen.
The living room has a gas fireplace. There is also a den/TV room (with a flat screen TV) on the main floor as well as an office. We have full cable service and wireless internet. The main floor bathroom has a shower.
On the second floor there are 2 bedrooms and a third room we use as an office/sewing room. The master bedroom has a king size bed; the second bedroom has a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have ample closet space. The second floor bathroom is en-suite but can also be reached from the hall way. It has a bath and separate shower.
We have a nice garden with perennial flowers and a vegetable garden with raised beds. Our large deck has built in benches as well as a large table and 6 comfy chairs. A second seating area is in the garden.
There's street parking in front of our house.
We will take care of and respect your home as if it were our own.
As we have a second home in Whistler, BC (see listing)we are also interested in non-simultaneous exchanges.

Who we are

  1. We are Chava and Kjell a married couple in our seventies with two grown up sons. We have three grand daughters and a grandson. Chava is a retired early childhood educator and Kjell is a retired professor at the University of British Columbia.
    To date we have done seven home exchanges and loved it! We think it is a great way to see other countries and at the same time give someone else the chance to see ours.
    We would like to arrange an exchange in advance in order to get to know other exchangers via email/Skype first to see how best we can facilitate a stay in Vancouver and our home.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in the cozy Dunbar neighborhood on Vancouver's west side. Our home is just a block away from all the shops, cafes and amenities on Dunbar street, 200 meters from the hiking and walking trails of Pacific Spirit Regional Park and just a short bike ride to the beaches and the University of British Columbia. Although a car is recommended if you want to explore all that the west coast has to offer (Whistler, where we have a second home we would consider exchanging, is just an hour and a half drive away), we are a short walking distance from public transportation. Quick bus rides will take you into the Kitsilano and Kerrisdale neighborhoods (5 minutes), Granville island (10 minutes), and straight into the heart of downtown Vancouver (15 minutes). All in all ours is a very comfortable and convenient home in beautiful Vancouver.
