About our home

Our house is located on a quiet street in one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Victoria. Our home has 3 bedrooms on the main floor and one bedroom in the lower level. Two bedrooms have queen-size beds and two have a single bed each. The main floor also has a new bathroom with heated tile floors, a beautiful, modern, bright kitchen with adjoining dining room and deck and a very comfortable living room with a fire place, TV, DVD and stereo. The deck is surrounded by majestic oak trees, a wonderful spot for a meal or sun bathing. In the basement, we have a media room with a 10 foot projection screen and surround sound, one bedroom and bathroom. Our computer has highspeed internet access. Our house sleeps 6 people comfortably. In the garden we have a sauna with an outdoor shower. We could provide toys for younger children. Bikes are in the garage.

More about us

  1. Our preferred destinations are Arizona/New Mexico for two weeks in March and Nova Scotia for about 2 weeks in the summer. My husband Neil is an optometrist, I (Alix) am a teacher. Our two grown daughters may accompany us. We have a cat named Frankie and a non-shedding dog named Ellie. The cat will stay in our house during our exchange, but the dog would be somewhere else. We are avid cyclists and would be happy to share our bikes with you. You could also use our canoe to paddle on the ocean. We would be happy to arrange a car exchange as well. We have done several house exchanges and loved them. We would care well for your home.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Victoria is a beautiful city with a historic downtown and magnificent views of the Olympic Mountains in Washington State. It is situated on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Our house is located in the quiet, beautiful neighbourhood of Oak Bay. A 10 minute walk takes you to a lovely beach with stunning views of the Olympic Mountains. We have a world class golf course as well as a picturesque village centre with cafes, bakeries, restaurants and shops within walking distance. Downtown Victoria with its historic buildings, harbour, museums, china town, shopping and entertainment is easily accessible by bus, car, bike and walking. Victoria and its surrounding area offers great kayaking, sailing, hiking, mountain biking, swimming, diving, surfing, golfing, whale watching and many other outdoor pursuits. Our area is famous for hikes in beautiful coastal rain forests. The famous West Coast Trail is only 50 km away.
