Lovely 1 Bed home swap in Richmond, Canada
Are you looking for a home base while you explore the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, the Sechelt Peninsula and the Gulf Islands? Then my comfortable, roomy one bedroom condo, located 20 minutes from the Vancouver International airport, is the place for you. It will accommodate 4 adults if you use the queen size sofa bed in the living room. I recommend that you be good friends as there will not be much privacy with 4 people!
The apartment has one and a half baths, high speed internet connection, a television with cable, a fully equipped kitchen, coin laundry facilities down the hall, an outdoor swimming pool and a good sized covered balcony that looks out into a large garden courtyard.
Richmond is a small island city directly across the river from Vancouver. There are several golf courses in the city and there are public tennis courts less than five minutes drive from the condo. Steveston, a charming fishing village that is part of Richmond, is a 5-10 minute drive away. It has many good restaurants and interesting shops, and can be the starting point of beautiful hikes along the dykes that surround the city. There is a multiplex cinema within 10 minutes drive of the condo and Richmond has a theatre that presents live performances, an art gallery with temporary exhibitions, and a casino with a theatre that presents a variety of well known performers.
Vancouver offers museums (including the Museum of Anthropology highlighting West Coast First Nations art and the Vancouver Art Gallery featuring paintings by Emily Carr), theatre, music, shopping, and world class restaurants. The ocean, beaches, and the mountains are less than an hour's drive away. Why not take a drive out to Fort Langley or take one of the agricultural tours in the Fraser Valley and meet the farmers who produce the food for the city. Victoria, the charming capital city of BC, on Vancouver Island, is just over an hour and a half ferry ride away. The ferry ride through the gorgeous Gulf Islands is often a highlight for visitors.
