Our home exchange house is near Vancouver, Canada, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics! The perfect suburban location, just 1 hour east of scenic Vancouver, British Columbia. Family home complete with fully-equipped mediaroom and billiards as well as a beautiful patio with BBQ off gourmet kitchen. Located near farmland, but also very urban. Just a 1 hour train/skytrain ride away from the sights of Vancouver, namely Robson Street (shopping), CFL stadium, NHL stadium, Pacific National Exhibition/Playland, and 2 1/2 hours from Whistler. In the Abbotsford area(where home is located) there is the Abbotsford International Airshow every August as well as the Berry Festival in July (World Capital Raspberry growers).
Just 1 hour east you will find Hell's Gate, a kayaking adventure playground with wonderful sightseeing and hiking in the mountains!
Abbotsford has many great restaurants and movie theatres. If you are the outdoors type, there are trails aplenty for hiking or cyling. A quick weekend trip to the interior (Okanagan) will bring you to a warmer and drier climate, the perfect place to try BC's best wine. The Abbotsford area also boasts a 100 year old village with an old country store where you can buy candy from all over the world.
Our home is in a typical residential/suburban neighbourhood with low crime and noise.
Wish to travel in March 2010 to Paris or London. Have you purchased your Winter Olympics event tickets? If so, our home is available to rent during the February 2010 Winter Olympics!
