About our home

Our new home as of the August of 2017. is a new 20th floor upscale condo with world class water views of the Fraser River and mountains including the iconic Mount Baker. This is a working river so there is always something happening on the river,log booms barges,fishing boats etc.The views are north and east facing so morning sunlight. During the summer you are able to see both sunrises and sunsets. Second bedroom is an office/bedroom with a queen sofa bed.

Building has a gym,hot tub and steam room . 7/12 entrance attendant.

A small ferry gives you another option of connecting to the main part of New Westminster. I runs 3 times an hour during the day. Great for day walking exploring or catching the Expo line train to Downtown Vancouver.

Please note, if you looked at the reviews only the last one refers to our current property. We downsized in 2017

We also have a cottage located 90 minutes from New Westminster (which is sometimes included in an exchange).

More about us

  1. I am Gary, a 71 year old retired IT manager. Janice also worked in IT and retired in early 2012. We are avid gardeners,walkers and volunteers. We love to travel both with home exchanges and our 17 Ft Bigfoot trailer. We have done 13 exchanges to date and look forward to many more. Still lots of destinations on the bucket list.

    We have a daughter living in the UK so Europe is an attractive destination for us when it comes to exchanges. Travel plans are all booked up through summer 2021.

    Please see the reviews about our previous exchanges( home is different).

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Our neighborhood is called Port Royal and is a planned community of condos and single family homes . Port Royal although part of New Westminster is actual closer geographically to Richmond. Both communities are located on Lulu Island in the middle of the Fraser River. Our neighbourhood has all the necessary shopping amenities . We have a walking path along the Fraser River .
Richmond is the home of the Vancouver International Airport A multi-faceted community historically based on farming and fishing it has transitioned into a multi-cultural city with strong Pacific Rim influences. New Westminster was the original capital of BC. Another lovely walkway awaits you on the other side of the river.

Downtown Vancouver is 35 minutes away and Whistler is about 2 hours away. Ferries to Vancouver Island are 20 minutes and the US border about 20 minutes.

Local bus transit is a 5 minute walk and it will take you to the nearest Sky train terminal . This train will take you to Burnaby and downtown Vancouver.

We also have a commuter ferry have will take you across the river. It takes about 5 minutes and runs 3 times an hour.
