Our house is a beautiful 3700 sq. ft. professionally decorated 12 year old dwelling in a very upscale neighbourhood of Victoria, British Columbia. It is Canada's western most city located on the scenic Pacific Coast and capital of our Province. Victoria is an outdoor paradise in the heart of the beautiful Gulf Islands, with many fine year-round golf courses, cycling and hiking trails nearby. You will enjoy wonderful strolls through Victoria's inner harbour with its charming shopping areas, fabulous restaurants, museums, art galleries and lush public gardens. Whale watching, kayaking and fishing excursions are readily available throughout the area.
With a population of over 300,000, Victoria is British Columbia's second largest city, only a 20 mile ferry hop from our larger and more famous neighbour city to the east, Vancouver. We are a similar distance to Washington State, USA to the south, with it's fabulous San Juan Islands and Olympic peninsula - also explorable by ferry.
Airport and ferry terminals are within 20 minutes of our home. Car(s) may be available for exchange.
We are looking to exchange in 2005 to Ottawa, Ontario, for up to seven weeks from August 13 - September 30. Paris in August 2006, 2007, and 2008. Other destinations and other times are also possible.
We are a professional working couple, physician and insurance executive. We are a caring, careful and responsible pair of empty nesters who love to travel.
