Open for exchange
Exchange dates Duration
October 12, 2023 - November 07, 2023 26 days

We are trying to organize a triple back to back exchange in September/October/November of 2023 to England (September 20 - October 12), Ireland (October 12 - October 27) and Iceland (October 27 - November 7). England has been arranged. If we could stay in a home in Ireland and Iceland on our specified dates, you could stay in our home the same dates or you could choose an alternate time more convenient to you (we would head out in our motorhome).

Cozy, family home in beautiful Victoria, BC in Canada

We feel so blessed to be living where we do, in a beautiful rural area just 15 minutes from downtown Victoria. Our house has 4 bedrooms (king, queen, bunks) sleeping 8 people comfortably. Up 7 steps from the front door is a large open space with kitchen, dining room, living room, tv room and play area. Down the hall are 3 bedrooms (sleeping 6 people) and 2 bathrooms. Down 6 steps from the front door is the 4th bedroom (queen) sleeping 2 more people and the laundry room. The basement area has a self contained suite which is occupied by a wonderful university student who is very quiet and you will probably never see. We have a large back yard with a trampoline and an above ground pool (only open from May to end of September) with large deck. Out the back, through sliders off the master bedroom, is a covered gazebo sitting area.

Our home is situated 15 minutes outside Victoria in a beautiful treed rural subdivision, on a quiet cul-de-sac. ‘Our’ beach is a short 5 minutes drive. We frequent this most beautiful beach often in the spring/summer/fall months.

About Our Family

We are both retired with 2 grown daughters and 7 grandkids - 6 grand sons (15, 15, 13, 12, 12, 5) and 1 granddaughter (8). Jim is 75 and is a retired electrician and Juanita is 74 and a retired elementary school teacher. We are fortunate to live close to both families. One daughter is 15 minutes away and the other is 5 minutes away.

Lifestyle

Since retiring we have done 3 back to back house exchanges to the east coast of Canada. We enjoy travelling and have spent many holidays in Hawaii and Mexico. Four years ago we travelled to Egypt, Jordan and Israel on a life changing adventure. We would love to return to Israel on a house exchange. We are family people who spend much time in our motor home and with our girls and grandkids. We enjoy, hockey, reading and Juanita loves to do needlework. Juanita loves, also, to take the grandkids out on dates.
