Welcome to beautiful Vancouver Island!
We are Bill and Jan, both 62, retired from teaching careers on Vancouver Island. We have two grown sons and two grandchildren. We like to keep active and want to spend more time travelling. We love our home and enjoy sharing it with others. We would treat your home like our own.
After completing home exchanges in Australia, New Zealand, Spain, California and Arizona, we realize the incredible opportunities it opens. Not only have we experienced new countries as more than tourists, but we have also made great friends with our exchangers. To be able to live as locals is the best way to discover a new area of the world.
June 1 — October 1, 2016 These dates are flexible
We have no set dates, but would love to visit several countries in Europe.
We enjoy hiking, walking, swimming at local beaches, biking, and eating local food, visiting local artisans and markets.
We stayed 5 days in Courtenay during our stay on Vancouver Island. Jan and Bill house was beautiful and very confortable. It was an ideal place to relax after All the outdoor activities the area has to offer. Our highlight was snorkeling woth the salmons in Campbell river and also orcas excursion. Hiking in the nearby mount Washington was also great. Jan and Bill welcome our family before leaving and it was very nice to have a little time to discuss with them. Thank you Jan and Bill and see you in Bordeaux
We spent a wonderful 10 days at Jan and Bill's home. The house is lovely, comfortable, and in a great location. There is much to see and do in Courtenay and the surrounding area. Bill and Jan are very welcoming. We enjoyed an afternoon and evening with them. We highly recommend a stay here. John and Joan
