We are planning a 3-week trip to Europe (Italy, France & England) in the summer of 2020 (June 15 - July 4, 2020). We are looking to stay in Rome, Paris and London for up to a week in each city. Our house will be available for both simultaneous and non-simultaneous exchanges during this period.

August 24, 2020 - August 30, 2020 4 days

Our house is available for use as we will be away camping.

a two-storey house on a tree-lined quiet street in the city of Vancouver.

Vancouver was the host of the 2010 Winter Olympics. It is surrounded by mountains and the sea. With the beautiful scenery and mild weather all year round, it has been consistently voted as one of the best places to live in the world. You can ski at 3 local mountains (less than 45 minutes) or at the world-renowned Whistler (less than 2-hour drive).

We live in a two-story house on a tree-lined quiet street in the city of Vancouver (not a suburb). It is centrally located, within minutes of walking to buses and SkyTrain stations. Our home is about 20 minutes to drive to downtown Vancouver and the famous Stanley Park. You can walk to the famous Queen Elizabeth Park in 15 minutes, and grocery stores and the trendy shops in 10 to 15 minutes. We are 25 minutes to the international airport (YVR).

Our house is bright and comfortable. Upstairs is the master bedroom (with ensuite bathroom), 2 single bedrooms and the main bathroom (with a bathtub). On the ground level is the spare bedroom/study with a Queen size bed.
We have a piano and a guitar for your enjoyment.
You can use our 4 bicycles to explore the city.
