About our home

Our most recent swaps were to London, Barcelona, and Montreal. Looking at other destinations for future travels. We can only swap during school holidays.
Therefore, at this time we prefer longer simultaneous swaps, or homes may be available to rent, no points, please.

Beautiful Craftsman Style Home in the City. Detached.
Located just 15minutes by car, 25mins. by transit from downtown Vancouver. Walking distance to many shops and restaurants ( 2 mins. walk ). Close to parks and transportation. Very central to everything.

We have a lakeside cottage available for a swap at the same time (during the summer), sleeps 10, (4.5hrs.) drive in the Okanogan (Wine Country), for some fun in the sun. It is a family resort, that has a large community pool, with lake views, a kids pool, hot tub, games room, shuffleboard. There are lots of activities for kids such as outdoor movie nights, smores by the fire.
Lake activities such as paddle boarding, kayaks, and water trampoline.
