More about us

  1. We are a family of 6. Gary is a School Vice Principal, Heather is a Music Therapist working with the elderly part time. We have four children: Annika, Olivia, Alexis and Owen. We are an active family who loves the outdoors. We are clean and are very respectful of someone else's home, as we would expect others to be of ours. We have experienced six very successful exchanges and are excited to continue travelling with our family!

Where is it?


Our house is located in White Rock area, which is a very close suburb to Vancouver city (25 minutes to Vancouver, 40 minutes to downtown). We live in a very quiet neighbourhood with little traffic and many beautiful old growth trees. We are within a 2 minute walk to a forest park with biking/walking trails, tennis courts, open fields and large playground. Within a 3 minute car ride to shopping area with large Supermarket, butcher shop, drug store/pharmacy, take-out food, barber, banks, veggie stand, post office and medical clinic. We also live within a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute drive to another beach and promenade. This is a lovely area, and great place for beach combing, suntanning, swimming, sailing, kayaking and of course playing in the sand. We are only a 30 minute drive to the Tsswassen ferry terminal, 30 minute drive to YVR Vancouver airport, 40 minutes to downtown Vancouver and 45 minutes to local mountains. Our location is ideal for experiencing the Lower Mainland, local skiing mountains, the Gulf Islands and Whistler/Blackcomb mountain; kayaking, biking, skiing, sailing, shopping, the list is endless here in Vancouver for all seasons.
