British Columbia, Canada,
Open to all dates
Welcome to our beautiful, smoke free (no smokers, please), pet free (no pets please), contemporary 3 level home, set in its own natural garden. It has glorious views of the sunrise over the ocean in the morning, and sunsets over the Halifax river from three separate terraces.
Enjoy dining, or just drinking a glass of wine on our large front terrace, while watching the surf. Sleep peacefully while listening to the waves of the Atlantic ocean roll in against an uncrowded soft sand beach, just a 3 minute walk away. Watch adorable baby turtles hatch from nests dug in the nearby dunes, while the Ospreys and Pelicans fly overhead.
Enjoy cooking in our gourmet kitchen with all great tools and spices/sauces, new stainless steel appliances, and a large quartz stone counter top.
You will also find original art, antiques and comfortable, fine furnishings. . . along with all the modern conveniences.
Included is high speed, broad band internet access, a large flat screened, "smart", high definition television, a digital video recorder, a music system with sound on all 3 levels, a DVD player and unlimited telephone services in the USA and Canada.
PLEASE. . . Because of the steps and terraces, and our fine furnishings, only 1 well behaved, responsible child over the age of 6 would be considered.
The ground floor has a complete guest suite containing a trundle bed that converts into a king bed or two single sized ones. There are 2 dressers and a closet. The guest bath has a shower over a bath tub, and a clothes washer and dryer.
The open plan second floor is comprised of the kitchen, dining and living areas with two terraces containing furnished barbecue and dining areas.
The third floor is the master bedroom suite, with double sinks, ample counter space and a large walk in shower. Our comfortable queen sized bed has a new pillow topped mattress. There are two antique dressers with plenty of room to completely unpack. The terrace, furnished with rocking chairs, has a wonderful elevated view from sea to river.
The landscaping is completely natural, and so no plant or lawn maintenance is required by our exchange partners. We even have a wild tortoise in residence in a burrow in the front garden, occasionally, and have seen deer in our back garden.
We have now completed over 55 delightful exchanges. Excellent references, from our wonderful past exchange partners, will tell you we are responsible, honest, clean, gracious hosts. We will care for your home, as our own, and expect the same from our partners.
Non-simultaneous exchanges are quite possible because we travel frequently. We are retired and so have the flexibility to explore and enjoy unique places.
If you are a non-smoking, mature couple with a passion for travel and a terrific home and location, please contact us. Let's create a magical home exchange together!
