Our family friendly house is located in a nice, quiet residential area, but close to Old Quebec (10 minutes), national parks and ski resorts (20 minutes). The best of both worlds!
You can also just enjoy the comfort of our home: relax in our sauna, read a good book in our large and beautiful backyard (14 000 sq foot), have a BBQ, swim in the pool or let the kids enjoy the swing set or have fun in the playroom.
The main floor consists of an open space with the kitchen, dining room and living room. There is also a bathroom and the kids' playroom. (There are also our offices, but those will not be accessible during the swap).
On the second floor, you will find 3 bedrooms. There is a large master bedroom with a luxurious ensuite bathroom (bath, shower and sauna). Next door are the 2 kids' bedrooms. The first one currently has a crib (it will probably become a single bed in the next few months) and the second one has a single bed. The kids have their own bathroom with bath/shower. On this floor, you will also find our "boudoir" or "library".
In the basement, you will find an open space with another bedroom (queen size bed) and a small living room. There is also another bathroom (shower only) and the laundry room.
We are also open to trading our car.
We are open to many dates and locations. In particular, we are looking to swap for our summer vacation (2015): we'd like to take then mid-August to mid-September but we are flexible! Also open to long weekend swaps. :-)
* Please note that we have 2 dogs* While the dogs will not be there during your stay (unless you want them to be: they are 2 happy, friendly, child-proofed dogs!), this house might not be appropriate for those who have severe allergies as it will be impossible to eliminate all traces of allergens before your arrival...
