We are a family of 4 (2 adults & 2 children) who live in the Vancouver suburb of Surrey in a modern 1,045 sq. foot 2 bedroom condominium/flat, ground floor with instant access to a beautiful and huge park directly behind our back door. Condo features in-suite private laundry (washer and dryer - no charge), automatic dish washer, alarm system, private secure underground parking, high speed internet, modern cooking facilities, large refrigerator, large deep freezer and close to all amenities. 3 televisions (1 in each bedroom + 52" T.V. in living room). Desktop computer provided, plus wireless high speed router for laptops.
5 minutes from the Skytrain to get to downtown Vancouver. Close access to the Pacific Ocean and it's beaches, plus 45 minute drive to the top ski resorts in North America (Whistler, Blackcomb, Grouse mountain etc.)
No air conditioning but 2 large ceiling fans provided, plus our condo is on the shady, cool side of the building and doesn't get too hot inside during Summer.
We love our neighborhood because it's directly situated behind a gorgeous large recreational green park that features a free outdoor swimming pool, brand new childrens water park and playground plus lots of space to ride bikes and jog etc.
We also live 5 minutes from all the necessary amenities such as banks, grocery stores, department stores, pubs, nightclubs, restaurants.
We are situated on a major transit route as well, so getting to downtown Vancouver is easy (about 30 minutes on the Skytrain).
This is a safe and secure family oriented building.
We are a family of 4 (2 adults with 8 yr old & 10 yr old daughters).
I am a professional IT consultant/E-commerce developer who works with clients on computer projects all over the globe. I want to spend the summer of 2009 in Europe to strengthen my business contacts in the EU and teach my children a different way of life at the same time.
We speak English only at this time but we want to learn some foreign languages while we're abroad as well.
