About our home

This is a comfy and functional home nestled by big fir trees in the backyard. Although located close to many amenities it is in a rural country setting. The living room & dining room graciously welcome visitors. Come & enjoy the fully equipped kitchen where sunlight streams in. You can easily seat 5 adults at the kitchen nook which is connected to the family room. Here you will have use of a 60 inch TV with surround sound, Netflix and Wii gaming. Wireless internet and cable is available upstairs also. Off the family room is a large balcony with a natural gas BBQ and a view of the agricultural land & one of the nearby golf courses. Watch the squirrels in the backyard or hear the coyotes at night. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a comfy queen sized bed, a 3 piece ensuite, ceiling fan and a walkout balcony with a view of Mount Baker located in the U.S. In the other two bedrooms, there is a queen sized bed and a double sized bed, both rooms have ceiling fans. The basement is our storage area but it also has a treadmill if you wish to use it.


More about us

  1. We are both retired (69 yrs) and are looking forward to traveling as much as we can (while we can). I retired from teaching elementary school and Ken retired from being a ship's officer. We enjoy camping, fishing, food, beautiful buildings & landscape. Ken loves his museums & history. We have completed 22 home exchanges so far (we started with Homeforexchange). Exchanging homes has been a wonderful experience for us (and many). People seem to be of the same mind - want to enjoy the world in a friendly and safe environment. Our experiences have been very positive & we like to keep in contact during our exchanges via the internet. We take great care while in your home & are very respectful of other people's property.

  2. We love to experience a culture that is different from ours.
