Ocean view and secluded beach – Victoria BC
Available for exchanges up to 3 months (or longer if no visa required in host country). We would be especially interested in a 6-week or longer exchange near London, plarticularly Richmond/Wandsworth/Balham area but also anywhere within 60 mins of central London by train
Our home enjoys great ocean views from all principle rooms (including the sunroom and deck). The kitchen is fully equipped, including a Nespresso coffee machine. TV services include Netflix, Crave, and an array of broadcast and cable channels. The bedrooms are spacious, and the main bedroom has a large ensuite. Both bedrooms have double beds. Including the ensuite, there are two bathrooms, each with shower and bath. There is also a double sofa bed in the downstairs family room. You'll be treated to deer, eagles, rabbits, and a host of birds in the yard and the trees in the area (and the occasional orca off the beach). A car exchange is not possible, but there is ample parking for one or two cars and a camper van.
We live in a quiet, residential neighbourhood of established homes. We are approx. 2 miles from the University of Victoria, and within a 20 minute drive of downtown Victoria and all major malls. 20 minutes to the international airport and Butchart Gardens, 30 minutes to the ferry. A lovely, secluded beach at the end of the street and public transit at the top of the street. (Though a car makes life easier.) CNN named Vancouver Island as one of its 20 "must see" destinations for 2020.
