Our home

We built our house to be a HOME, so it is comfortable and easy to live in. The main level has a spacious kitchen with family eating area; family room with wood-burning fireplace and doors onto large west-facing deck with stairs to patio and back garden; dining room with doors onto the deck; living room with gas fireplace; and a full bathroom. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, 2 with private ensuite bathrooms; 2 other bedrooms; and a 3rd bathroom. On the lower (Garden) level is a large recreation room with pool table, library area, gas fireplace and wet-bar, doors to patio and garden; Laundry room. The front entry courtyard is very private, totally surrounded by a high fence, and full of trees, shrubs and colourful planters. It is a wonderful place to have breakfast during the summer months, and to enjoy the company of the birds and squirrels. Behind the house is a very large, private property backing onto a creek, west-facing and extremely sunny. There’s a large patio with table and chairs and a double hammock; a lawn area; and a gazebo close to the creek, where you can sit in the shade and read when the sun is really hot. We can sometimes include use of a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom garden suite in Whistler, a world-class ski resort less than 2 hours drive from our West Vancouver home.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We (David and Gillian) are mid 60's semi-retired business professionals, originally from England but living in Vancouver since 1969. We are non-smoking and prefer a non-smoked-in exchange home. We love animals, but at this time we do not have pets. However, we would be pleased to watch over your cats or other smaller pets provided there is a neighbour who could take over for a few days at a time while we explore your part of the world. We are experienced travelers and exchangers, starting when our children (now-grown & married) were young, in the days of printed catalogues! We are pleased to consider straight exchanges, non-simultaneous exchanges and also hospitality exchanges. We often travel with friends from the UK , a couple of similar age to ourselves.

    OUR GOAL FOR 2010 IS TO EXCHANGE WITH ANYONE WHO CAN PROVIDE US WITH USE OF AN RV RATHER THAN THEIR HOME. WE HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH 28' 5TH WHEEL TOWED BY F250 DIESEL TRUCK, AND A 32' CLASS A MOTORHOME. WE WOULD PREFER CALIFORNIA IN AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER, BUT ARE OPEN TO ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

West Vancouver is considered to be one of the most desirable areas of Vancouver; a particularly private yet convenient location with a unique 'Village' environment. Outside of rush-hour traffic it is only 15 minutes from the centre of Vancouver, yet it is less then 10 minutes walk to the beaches, sailing, water sports, sea wall, library, recreation and seniors' centres and many wonderful shops, boutiques, coffee houses and restaurants. There are 3 local ski mountains and several golf courses within 30 minutes drive. The bus into Downtown Vancouver stops just a block away if you prefer not to drive. Further afield, you can take a ferry to Vancouver Island or the Sunshine Coast, or drive to Whistler (1.5 hours), the top ranked ski resort in North America.
