|May 18, 2019 - July 01, 2019||2 weeks|
About 2 - 5 weeks wanted in spring 2019 sometime between middle of May and 1 July 2019
Large house steps from the ocean and walking distance to downtown Victoria BC. This is the capital city of British Columbia (BC).
We live in a quiet residential neighbourhood. We are 5 houses from the ocean yet just blocks away from vibrant centre of town with shops, groceries, pubs, harbour, museums etc. This is a large character 3 bedroom house over 100 years old. It easily sleeps 5 in the house plus another 2 in the separate studio. Our house also has an office/den, a family / TV room, a large deck with Bar-B-Que, and a large patio.
One thing that makes our house special is how close we are to the spectacular oceanfront and Beacon Hill Park on Dallas Road. Victoria, which is on the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island, is world-famous for its great sailing, kayaking, hiking, beautiful old-growth rain forests, and breath-taking ocean views. Our weather is the warmest in Canada. It never gets too cold and is comfortably warm in the summer. Vancouver is just a ferry ride (or 20 min seaplane trip) away and the beautiful gulf islands are a shorter ferry ride away. The city of Victoria is well known for its beautiful downtown area with lovely old buildings, great shopping and dining (tons of restaurants), the world-famous Butchart Gardens, the stately Empress Hotel (famous for its high tea!) and the Royal B.C. Museum.
We have exchanged houses previously and have found it a great way to travel. We love our home and will treat yours the way we treat ours.

Vorstellungstext über sich bzw. Ihre Familie
We are both recently (3 years) retired and our children are grown and independent. I was a midwife and my husband worked in the social services field. I enjoy good food and art, and my husband Jim liikes mountain biking and kiteboarding. We have a very friendly cat Jake who is independent with his own cat door so he only needs periodic food, water, and some attention if you like cats.
We have family in town if you need any help with anything in the house.
