Central location to airport, ferries and downtown Private garden with many sitting areas large deck with BBQ, valley views Minutes to walk to Brydon Park with extensive trail system throughout Victoria.

Der Raum

Our home has two areas, the main floor is on the upper level. It has two bedrooms both with queen beds; living room with natural gas fireplace; dining room; family room with satellite TV/DVD/Netfix; main bathroom with tub and shower; smaller bathroom with shower stall; modern kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave and all the other usual appliances; WIFI. Just outside the kitchen door is a large deck with a natural gas barbecue, propane fireplace, screen room, lots of patio furniture and a nice view of the surrounding area. The lower or ground level of the house contains a one bedroom apartment. We use it for family or visiting friends. For non simultaneous exchanges we can move into the apartment to allow you to use the main part of the house. It has worked very well for us for non simultaneous exchanges. The apartment is completely separate and private from the main part of the house and has it's own entrance. Laundry is shared. We may be here but you have complete privacy and only see us if you need or want to! For simultaneous exchanges you will have the entire house. We have no carpets but there are a few rugs/mats at the entrances and one silk rug under the living room coffee table. Only mentioning it in case of severe allergies. The yard contains a lovely brick patio complete with patio furniture and a market umbrella which you are sure to enjoy on a hot day. The yard and gardens are beautiful and well tended. It was a featured garden on a charity tour to support our local hospice in 2014. There are lots of flowers, trees and plants. The yard is very private. It also has a stunning outdoor natural gas fireplace. There is a sprinkler system so you will not have to worry about watering.

Gastzugang

The main living area is on the second floor but if stairs are a problem, the ground floor has a self contained one bedroom, completely private, separate entrance suite.

Anmerkungen

No indoor smoking. We spend 4-5 months in Mexico so our Victoria home is open to long term non simultaneous swaps. If you want to get away from winter, Victoria is the best place in Canada to escape snow! We won't guarantee no snow as it happens (2-3 weeks on average over the entire winter). We would accept globes or a week or two in exchange.

Nachbarschaft

Victoria is located on Vancouver Island. We are a 90 minute ferry ride to the mainland and the City of Vancouver. The ferry itself is a highlight of any vacation to the British Columbia coastal area, going between the spectacular Gulf Islands. The island is famous for salmon fishing, golfing, hiking, rainforests, beaches, year round snow capped mountains, whale watching and much more. We often see Bald Eagles soaring over the parkland behind our home. We have the best weather in the summer with temperatures averaging 25C and no humidity. We are within a five minute walk to the neighbourhood shopping centre: grocery store, bank, bookstore, coffee shops, dentist, walk in medical clinic, bakery, liquor store, hairdresser, travel agent and much more. There are casual and fine dining restaurants plus a neighbourhood pub 5-15 minutes walk away. Just behind our house is a neighbourhood park which connects to the entire city hiking, walking, cycling trail. We are on the edge of farmland yet still in the city. The city centre with the beautiful inner harbour is about 15 minutes by car. The airport is less than 20 minutes and the ferries to Vancouver about 25 minutes. We are within ten minutes to the TransCanada Highway to take you to the upper part of Vancouver Island. Five minutes by car will take you to the local recreation centre with large indoor swimming pool, library and more- an 18 hole golf course is about 10 minutes by car. Another major shopping area is five minutes by car. We love our area of Victoria for it's amazingly convenient location.

Zu mir nach Hause kommen

We are only 15 minutes from the airport or Washington State ferries - 20 minutes to the Vancouver ferry. We are always open to non simultaneous swaps as we have two completely separate living areas in our home. We have met many fun and interesting exchange partners this way! If you plan a trip to the "big city" -Vancouver, why not spend an extra week in Victoria?

Rumkommen

Public transportation - less than five minute walk to the nearest bus stop or 15 minutes walk to the bus exchange for the entire city BC Transit System. If you board the bus close to us, transfers to anywhere else are free at the various exchange points. Walk about five minutes to a shopping centre with groceries, liquor store, bank, bookstore, coffee shop, hairdressers, medical and much more. Our Toyota Rav 4 is negotiable for exchange. We are about 15 minutes by car to the world famous Butchart Gardens via a lovely country road with farm stands and country markets. 15 minutes west will take you to the TransCanada Highway to drive "up island" to the towns of Duncan, Chemainus (world famous murals) or Coombs- on the way to the Pacific coast towns of Ucluelet and Tofino with kilometres of sandy beaches. 15 minutes in the other direction takes you to our beautiful Inner Harbour featuring our Legislative Building (stunning at night with the thousands of lights), fantastic Royal BC Museum, The Empress Hotel, funky shops, pubs and restaurants. From the Inner Harbour you can go on an Orca whale watching tour; take a salmon fishing tour; an overnight trip to Seattle Washington via the catamaran or take a day trip on the ferry to Port Angeles Washington. During the summer months there are always events happening in the downtown area, such as the Dragon Boat Festival, Buskers Festival, The Symphony Splash and so much more.
