About our home

**Note** We're expecting our second child in October, so our place will be unavailable through the end of January. But we're interested in both simultaneous and points swaps from February 2020 onwards!

Clean, comfortable, bright, family-friendly apartment with tons of space! Enjoy mountain views from the living room of this second-floor walk-up apartment, perfect for couples or small families. Walk/bike/bus everywhere from our central location. We're right on the edge of beautiful, historic Rockland, and downtown is only fifteen minutes away on foot. We also have plenty of accessible basement storage for bikes, sporting equipment and strollers.

We're baby and kid-friendly. The second bedroom is set-up for our young toddler (crib, changing station, black-out curtains). We can add an additional queen-sized mattress to the room (with duvet and pillows) if needed. All stairs having closing doors to block them off, and we have a baby-gate for the kitchen. We have lots of wood toys, books, and a separate little play zone in the living room.

Additional features include a large LED TV with cable, Nintendo Wii, record player and stereo, pull-out table in the dining room to seat up to 8, a separate breakfast nook, washer and dryer, and a large clawfoot tub. Gas heating and gas stove (no dishwasher).

Our very friendly and sweet cat named Coconut can either stay with you or be left with our family. We have an Audi A3 wagon that could be included as well for simultaneous swaps.

Free street parking on the block.

Where is it?


Right at the juncture of Rockland, Fernwood, Downtown, and Oak Bay. Easy access to many of Victoria's attractions (with Craigdarroch Castle right behind us!), and a short walk downtown. An excellent jumping off point for adventures around the city and area. Walk through historic Rockland for beautiful walled estates, gardens, and views of the ocean.
