Our home

This clean, comfortable two bedroom condo is a few minutes walk to the centre of the city, to parks, the beach and children's pool. Large evergreen trees shade the dining room and living room from the summer sun and there is a spectacular view up the lake to the towering mountains from the master bedroom. The buildings are well maintained and quiet. Although the unit is only about 10 years old,oak floors are being installed, replacing the carpet.There is a new recreational complex with swimming pool, skating rink and gym a few minutes walk.

Property features

Who we are

  1. I"m Bill and I have children and grandchildren. I now live alone. I'm retired, having worked as a journalist and for a Canadian government department as a public relations/public affairs advisor. I was also a therapist toward the end of my working life.
    In my earlier life I traveled through England, Europe, the Middle East and lived in Sydney, Australia.
    In recent years I usually traveled south in the winter, Mexico or other warm destinations.
    I'm used to flying to a destination, and traveling by bus with a small suitcase and day pack, kind of winging it, finding places to stay with the help of guide books.

    I decided to try a home exchange for the first time which might take me quite different destinations and with my accommodations awaiting me at the other end.
