“This was a hugely successful exchange. Laura and I built up a very positive relationship via emails and phone calls and were honest about what we hoped for from the swap. The family very kindly left us the use of two cars which was perfect, as there were 6 of us. Coming from totally different locations we all enjoyed a complete change of scene. There is no way we could have afforded 3 weeks in Canada without an exchange. British Columbia is a beautiful part of the world and well worth a visit. What was special is that we actually met up in our house in London on our return and enjoyed a great evening together swapping stories. We got on very well. Exchange is the way to go, as long as you are honest about expectations. Thanks to our lovely hosts. ”

Enjoy a uniquely Canadian vacation in our modern log home. Perched cliffside above Mashiter Creek in complete privacy it's easy to forget you're still in a suburban neighborhood just minutes away from shops and dining in town centre. We're located in Garibaldi Highlands, a hillside community within Squamish, British Columbia. Squamish is located midway between Whistler Blackcomb (35 minute drive) and Vancouver (45 minute drive). Both are an easy drive along the spectacular Sea to Sky Highway; included in our exchange is a winter prepared AWD Volvo XC90 with ski rack.
Vancouver and Whistler certainly don't need much of an introduction but for a glimpse of what Squamish has to offer see here...www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRRdprf6B-U (copy + paste to your browser) for a broader view of our region see here...www.vimeo.com/76166406 (copy+ paste to your browser) and just for good measure, here's Whistler Blackcomb's site address www.whistlerblackcomb.com (copy+paste to your browser)
Our home features a large mastersuite with it's own washroom on the uppermost floor, the main floor has the kitchen and dining area, living room with a two storey gas fireplace as well as two smaller bedrooms, laundry facilities and another full washroom. The lowermost floor of the house has a second full kitchen, two bedrooms, full washroom, laundry and television room with another gas fireplace. This would give potential home-swap guests the option of sharing the house with another family while maintaining privacy. Any questions, please don't hesitate to send us a message!
