About Our Home
We live in the fantastic Commercial Drive area which is just a 15 min. drive to downtown. Public transit is only 2 blocks from my front door but I'm also open to discussing usage of the car. "The Drive" is home to the most eclectic mix of businesses in the city, most of which are single location, owner-operated. It repeatedly receives the Georgia Straight's (local newspaper) Reader's Choice award as the best neighbourhood in the City and it’s also been ranked one of the 10 hippest neighbourhoods in North America by Utne Reader. Besides the great shops there's an excellent kid's park just a few blocks away. Our home is split over two levels with sleeping up and living down. There are two bedrooms with a queen in the master and double bed and a crib in the other. There's also a great rooftop deck that can be enjoyed during the summer months. The kitchen is great to work in and the dining room table comfortably seats 6. Fantastic hiking and biking trails are all around and Whistler is a ~2 hour drive. If you would like to spend your spring in a completely different environment we would kindly ask you to look into swapping your home with us during the month of March (we have the flexibility). Thanks! Rachel and Rylan
Special Considerations
Absolutely no smoking in the house. If you could water the plants that would be fantastic (typically only required once per week).
Vcr has some of the best restaurants in the country - the possibilities are endless
Granville Island, Robson Street, Commercial Dr.
People come here for the outdoor adventures. There's hiking, mountain biking, skiing at local hills or Whistler, boating etc. Again, the possibilities are endless.

  Our Dream Trip

destinations Switzerland
destinations Anytime
We're hoping to be there for ! 1 month. There's a bit of flexibility on timing on either side but we'll need good notice so we can get the baby a passport.

  About Us

  1. We love to travel but find it more difficult with a baby. We're hoping this will be the perfect solution!
  2. We've got good friends in Winterthur, Frauenfeld and Greifensee so are hoping to stay in the Zurich area so we can easily visit them as well as see many of the other sites.
  3. We aren't keen on posting our photo online but if you're interested in an exchange we'd be happy to "meet" you on skype to show you around the house and introduce ourselves.

  Personal Message

After hearing some positive home exchange stories we're very eager to try it out. It's a big deal to allow someone into your home and we promise to take care of your place just as we do our own.
