“We loved our stay in Darryl and Erika's home. Their house was spacious and very comfortable with great views of the ocean. Our kids loved the trampoline and the sandpit! The location was peaceful, yet incredibly handy and made the perfect base to explore beautiful Vancouver Island (although there was plenty to do in the immediate area and just staying at home and relaxing was also nice!). Darryl and Erika were very easy to deal with and thoughtful hosts and we would highly recommend them as future swap partners.”

We have a six bedroom home in a friendly neighbourhood overlooking the ocean in Nanaimo. Our home is located in a central, residential neighbourhood and is only a short walk to the beach, grocery store, coffee shop and restaurant. The ocean view looks out over Departure Bay where you will see the coastal mountain views and watch the ferries arrive from Vancouver.
Nanaimo is a small city with beautiful parks and an extensive waterfront walkway. There are numerous day hikes in nearby forests and mountains. The Nanaimo Golf Course is 5 min from our home. Being a coastal city, Nanaimo is surrounded by a system of small islands nearby to explore by boat, kayak or paddle board as well as world class scuba diving. Mt Washington ski hill is just over an hour away with fantastic downhill and cross country skiing, and tubing.
Our home is comfortable with air conditioning, central heating and a natural gas hot water system for unlimited hot water. There are three queen sized beds and two single beds in five bedrooms with an additional bedroom functioning as an office. We have two large flat screen TVs and wireless internet throughout the house. We have a large, private backyard with a trampoline, sand box and fruit trees. With three children of our own, there are toys and books to share.
The use of our mini van or four door sedan can be arranged, as well as a house cleaner, upon request.

“Darryl and Erika are an amazing couple with three great children. Their house is in a picture perfect neighbourhood with friendly neighbours and centrally located for easy access to all major tourist areas on Vancouver Island. The island is easily accessible from the mainland by Ferry or plane with many services running daily. The house was large and roomy and with plenty of space for our large family and had all the creature comforts. I could not recommend Darryl and Erica highly enough as swap partners. They really made everything easy and hassle free. Thanks again, Mark and Peta. ”
