Large Family Home Near Beach
Vancouver house near beach + Whistler Townhouse!
We would like to swap our large (3500 sq ft) comfortable three bedroom, two bathroom house (and possibly one week in Whistler) for similar accommodation (large apartment/condo ok) in Europe (London, France, Italy.).
Our home has big living and family rooms and kitchen, office/library, and a large, private grassy back yard, deck with gas barbeque/table/chairs. Comes with all amenities like big screen tv, internet access, microwave, dishwash t go along the beach and within the parks), and possibly a car swap.
The Whistler townhouse is a two bedroom, three bathroom unit (sleeps 6) within a 5 minute walk of shops and restaurants and a 10 minute walk from the main Village Center. It contains all amenities including full dishware, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and secure underground parking for one car. There is plenty for adults and kids to do in Whistler, from sightseeing and hiking, to canoeing and horseback riding, to swimming and shopping and eating and drinking. (The Whistler townhouse is a rental property and is subject to availability, for a one week stay), for more townhouse information, visit http://www.alluradirect.com/190/index.cfm?lasturl=o.
The Vancouver house is located a block and a half from Jericho Beach (offering kayaking, sail boat rentals/lessons, majestic views of the ocean and city), in a quiet residential neighbourhood with many nearby parks.
Fifteen minute drive to downtown Vancouver, 10 minute drive to UBC (University of British Columbia) and the Museum of Anthropology, and 15 minute walk/5 minute drive to neighbourhood shopping (restaurants, grocery and liquor stores, bakery, deli, library, hardware store, banks, shops, etc.)
We are a family of four, with 2 well behaved children age 9 and 14). Tim is an Professor at the University and I am a Marketing Consultant. Our daughter Hannah is in a French Immersion school and her brother Jake is attends a private boy's school. We have all travelled extensively for work and play.
We'd love to swap for approximately one month between July 2nd and August 25th, 2010, preferably in London but will also consider other large European cities (Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland.), 1 - 2 weeks in Mexico (Cancun/Mayan Riviera perferred)or Hawaii at year end.
