We exchanged homes with Diane and Dave in September 2011. Their spacious, well-equipped home in a gated community has a gorgeous panoramic ocean-view with easy access to great sandy beaches for walks and exploring. A small seaside community with Pubs coffee shops, grocery stores and the rest. we knew Pacific City was laid back when we saw the name on the local bakery, the "Greatful Bread". This is the perfect residence to plan a retreat, the area is located mid-way between Lincoln City and Tillimook, providing lots of tax-free shopping opportunities if you can abandon the amazing views and miles of beaches.

What we said about Eric & Dorothy's house:

Our exchange with Eric and Dorothy was our first exchange and I must say it was much more than we ever expected. Their home in Victoria BC is to die for and the ocean views on three sides makes it a paradise all of its own. We so enjoyed the quiet and beautiful scenery, as well as the many attractions within short distances of their home. We had lunch at the Empress Hotel and took in the music there at night as well. I have to say it cetainly made me a believer in doing exchanges and we have done more as a result. Their surrounding area is very calming and the people are so very friendly. We made other connections as a result of this adventure and hope they develop into future encounters as well. Eric is very well organized and had several contacts we could have accessed if need be.
