Lovely family home in West Vancouver, Canada

The Primary photo is the front of our house taken from the street. The house faces west and has lovely views across the Burrard Inlet to Vancouver Island and U.B.C. There is a deck off of the kitchen which gets lovely morning sun and stays sunny most of the day. - There is also deck out the front with table and seating where we often eat out and enjoy spectacular sunsets in the evening. The ground level entry area of the house has a family room with gas fireplace and TV, two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. There are photos of each of these rooms on our listing.
The 2nd floor is our main living area with living-room/dining-room, kitchen, master bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. There is a spiral staircase leading to the 3rd floor where we have a computer desk, open area and 4th bedroom. I apologise that my photos are totally mixed up. I was trying to get them in some logical order with little success. We love our house!

Our Neighbourhood

We have very friendly and welcoming neighbours who have been very helpful with previous exchange visitors.

We have two 'really fun' electric bikes that we use instead of the car for local trips to the shops or library and one regular push bike that makes you get good exercise pedalling up the local hills!

There are many coffee shops and restaurants to enjoy and we are within easy access to downtown Vancouver.

About Our Family

Our family photo was taken in May this year. You can guess the location....

We have two grown children. Our daughter lives and works here in Vancouver. Our son lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.

We are all keen travellers and enjoy many sports and outdoor activities.

Lifestyle

At the moment we are looking for accommodation in Melbourne, Australia for a few short term stays between November. 23, 2019 and Jan. 15, 2020.
We will be in Melbourne to spend Christmas near our son who lives in Preston, to visit friends and other family and to do some short trips in Victoria and N.S.W.
We can do exchange, non-simultaneous exchange or hospitality offers.

Vancouver is a wonderful city to visit and live in! We have the best of mountains and water access on our doorstep. Great biking, hiking, skiing in the winter and a wide choice of cultural events, museums, markets and fun things to do!
Our exchange offer includes use of our car, a Toyota Rav 4 Hybrid and our two, excellent e-bikes!
