“Spent 3 weeks at the Ellen and Ken home. Very convenient to go to Vancouver by Skytrain. Many things to visit all around. The home is comfortable and the location is perfect. Ellen and Ken provided us many touristic information. We have some good memories from this exchange.”
Ellen's reviewsAs a host (4)
“I spent a wonderful time in this beautiful house. The place is very large, very comfortable, the equipment is amazing, and the large and sunny terrace was terrific to relax and eat outside. The neighbourhood is quiet and charming, with all shopping possibilities nearby with the car or bus. Then, Vancouver was a real surprise for me. So pleasant with all the water fronts and beautiful views, nice people, easy transportation, and many museums to visit. The region is amazingly beautiful, and I will definitely come back to British Columbia later to explore more of the coast and islands. Last but not least, Ellen and Ken are extremely nice and easy-going people - they gave me lots of tips and we spent one day together visiting some beautiful places on the coast. This was one of my greatest exchanges so far!”
“Ellen & Ken live in a very comfortable house in Surrey located about 40 miles from Vancouver. As we could use their car the access to the city was easy. There is also a very fast Skytrain connection to the center of Vancouver. Many other Canadian attractions are also nearby and so we still do have lots of unforgettable impressions. The house is just as shown in the pictures. It is spacious and very clean. We found lots of hints written on various stickers which was a great help. It also shows that Ellen and Ken are people who care for their customers and so we had a very warm feeling: people you can trust! Coming home we found our house was left immaculate. Do not hesitate to experience an exchange with this lovely couple.”
“We settled into Ellen's home very easily, very functional and comfortable home in a quiet suburb only a half hour Sky-train ride to Vancouver City. Lots of nice parks and walks in the area. A great home base for exploring the Rockies and only 20 minutes drive to the US border. We would thoroughly recommend this exchange.”
Where is it?
Located in a quiet and highly desirable neighbourhood. My home is on a spacious picturesque corner lot of a south sloping hill. Below is the partial view of agricultural land and one of the golf courses nearby. There are two nearby golf courses. Surrey Golf (half a km away) & Northview Golf & Country (3.6 km away). Many amenities are nearby: recreational facilities (swimming pools with diving boards & water slide, tot pool, hot tub, 3 skating arenas, weight room, fitness) and a public library,
Beautiful Fleetwood Park 1.8 km away (which has basketball, volleyball, gardens, picnic tables, trails, childrens' waterpark, baseball & soccer fields). Two nearby pubs, many grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants (Japanese, Vietnamese, Indian, American, Greek, fast foods) , banks, buses and more.
From this location there is easy access to the freeway, shopping malls 15 min., U.S. 20 min., Vancouver 40 min., Seattle 2 hrs. and Whistler 2hrs 15min. A skytrain station 15 minutes away will take you into Vancouver, the airport or Coquitlam. Here is an article about our beautiful city.
