Hi from Beautiful British Columbia!
We are a friendly family of 3. Chris is a finance executive, who loves cycling and hiking. Karen is an avid gardener (with a Master Gardener's certificate) who loves hiking, reading, and works in administration for a school district. Madison is our 14 year old daughter who likes typical teenage girl stuff! We all love traveling, discovering new places and people. We have a young cat, Molly, who will gladly keep you company, but we can also find an alternate home for her during your stay if that works better. We have traveled to several countries, done 3 house exchanges, and also we have rented our home for several years to people from a variety of countries, while we lived in the USA. We hope we can help you discover Burnaby, Vancouver, Whistler and the surrounding area by exchanging with you!
Karen's sister or mother may also travel with us for a short time, making a total of 4 vacationers.
Karen has lived briefly in France & Spain (so speaks a little bit of those languages) and the family has lived in the USA for a number of years.
July 5 — August 22, 2015 These dates are flexible
Looking for 2-3 weeks in Italy (Tuscany?) Summer 2015. Dates are a bit flexible.
Very pleasant house in a very calm district, close to the nature. Good place to visit Vancouver and British Colombia. Very helpfull and friendly family. Karen mother's provided food and beverage just before our arrival. Very helpfull neighbours. We managed the cat ( just a little bit aggressive at first) who wanted to escape. Thanks to this exchange we spent unforgettable holidays . We felt like home in this house. Exchange partners to be highly recomended.
Very helpful and friendly owners - picked us up at train station, made us very welcome, provided some food and wine upon arrival. Showed us around town, introduced us to parents who live in same building - lovely family! Very clean, bright, updated apartment - fantastic location - completely served our needs. On a busy street so if you need windows open for cool air be prepared for traffic noise Close to all shopping, entertainment, restaurants, beach. Highly recommend, would love to visit again :) Basque country was awesome!
