Overlooing harbour in Canada's garden city home swap

Ideally located looking towards the mouth of the Victoria, B.C. harbour, our condo is light-filled from sunrise to sunset, yet cooled by breezes off the water. On the edge of the West Bay walkway, we are a 15 minute stroll from the centre of town with easy access to a wide variety of activities, entertainment and shopping.

The condo has a large living dining area with excellent views, an efficient kitchen equipped with new appliances, a large master bedroom with ensuite and walk in closet, second bedroom/study furnished with a comfortable sofa bed, a second bathroom with shower only, a separate laundry, and two small decks. Situated on the main floor of an eight-storey building, the unit is actually a full storey or more above the ground, facing on to a park at the edge of the water.

TV's, DVD/cable pvr, stereo, high speed wireless internet, non-smoking, no pets. Car and bicycle exchange discussable. Also would consider exchanging Jeep and small travel trailer for motorhome in UK or Europe.
