Cozy Burnaby Home and Whistler Condo

We wish to exchange for 2 or 3 weeks in March or July 2018.
We would love for you to be guests in our comfortable home in Burnaby, B.C. Burnaby borders Vancouver which offers a wide range of tourist opportunities. Our two story house is a 1950s family home with an enclosed backyard and deck. It is very comfortable for up to 8 people. The main floor has a large living room, dining room, renovated kitchen, a four piece bathroom and 2 bedrooms with double beds. The bright basement has a large entertainment room, 2 bedrooms with double beds, a four piece bathroom, and a laundry room. Our car is a 2010 Hyundai Accent and has 5 seat belts.

Whistler Mountain is a 2 hour drive from our home where you will be able to enjoy our vacation condo. We own a 1 bedroom vacation condo in Whistler, BC that is located on Alpha Lake which is about a 5 minute drive to the Creekside area of Whistler and about a 10 minute drive to Whistler Village. We are also interested in exchanging this property or including it with our Burnaby home exchange. It is a 1970’s condo that has 1 bedroom with a double bed bunk as well as a double bed. There is also a futon fold down couch in the living room, so it will be very cozy for 6 people. There is also an original wood burning fireplace in the living room. There are endless summer and winter festivals and activities in Whistler for you to enjoy.

We would love to share the beauty that British Columbia holds. Staying at our home would allow you to explore many of the sights that our wonderful province has to offer.

Looking forward to hearing from you,
Marie and Doug

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: YVR - 15 km

We live in a very quiet, family friendly neighbourhood in Burnaby, which borders Vancouver. It is a 5 minute drive to many of the restaurants and shops at Metrotown Mall. Also, the Royal Oak SkyTrain station, our rapid light rail system, is a comfortable 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive away from our house. This SkyTrain transit system will take you to downtown Vancouver (15 min), and gives you easy access to many other attractions in the Lower Mainland area. Our neighbours are very helpful, and they have done house exchanges before so they will be great ambassadors.
Our home is very central to many wonderful attractions in B.C. By car, the Trans-Canada Highway is very close, and it is easy to leave the city to enjoy the attractions that B.C. has to offer. North Vancouver is a 30 minute drive on the highway and offers many great outdoor adventures such as Grouse Mountain, Lynn Valley Suspension Bridge, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Deep Cove, and Ambleside Beach. Downtown Vancouver is also a 30 minute drive or 15 minute SkyTrain ride from our home and offers many shopping and cultural opportunities such as Chinatown, Gastown, Stanley Park and countless beaches. The USA border is about 40 minutes away, and it is about a 3 hour drive to Seattle, Washington. The Horseshoe Bay and Tsawwassen ferry terminals are both only about a 40 minute drive and offer many more outdoors activities and attractions on the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island. The Vancouver area also offers many other tourist attractions such as whale watching in Steveston

About Our Family

We have been married for 27 years and have two adult daughters who no longer live with us, but hopefully will be traveling with us. We are excited to make special memories together. I (Marie) teach elementary school in Vancouver, and Doug works as an electrician at Burnaby General Hospital. We have done much traveling but have never done a house exchange before. We would be happy to provide references if required as we have friends who have done house exchanges with Intervac.
