We may consider having a pet stay in our home but please discuss with us first. We have a cat but he will either travel with us or be boarded during an exchange. (It's a bonus if you're within a 4 hour flight of us and would be willing to have us bring him to your home; he requires medications and it's much easier to have him with us).
1.5 blocks from the nearest subway station. 22 minutes by subway to YVR (Vancouver International Airport), 1 hour drive from the Douglas/Peace Arch USA border crossing, 3 hour drive from Seattle and 2 hour drive to Whistler.
No car required if your interest is the heart of Vancouver. Turn right for the 20+ mile oceanfront 'seawall' or left to the trendiest restaurant and shopping district in Vancouver, called Yaletown.
Within 1-8 blocks you will find museums, theatres, shopping and excellent international dining. Services include gourmet groceries, banks, medical clinics and a teaching hospital. Activities include kayak rentals and tours, whale watching, bicycle rentals (the seawall is divided for pedestrians and bicyclists/rollerbladers/skateboarders).
If you are arriving by private boat, Quaywest Marina is immediately in front of our home.
