We have a beautiful home and three acres of landscaped garden with fruit tress and flowers. You can sit and enjoy your morning coffee and overlook the ocean toward the main island of Nanaimo. Our island has much to offer visitors and we generally have a lot of company over the summer. We are a short ferry ride to Vancouver island which has many summer activities and places to visit. We have not done an exchange before and are both excited and nervous about this first trip.
