About our home
We live 5 min walk to a local beach and a forested park, 10 min stroll to the village centre where shops, restaurants, the harbour, kayak rentals and the ferry terminal, are located. We're a 15 min ferry ride to mainland and only 20 minutes by city bus to downtown Vancouver.
We love nature: swimming, sailing, kayaking, hiking up our mountain or walking around the lakes of our paradise island, but we have friends and family ties elsewhere on our fragile and beautiful planet. So once in a while we leave here to re-connect with them. What better way to do that than to meet up in another land and cook, walk, swim, read, see the sights and relax together, while another family does likewise in our home?
We will love and respect your house and we hope you will treat ours likewise:)
