A friendly place in the centre of Canada!

Our home was completely renovated in 2015. It is very spacious. We love to cook, and our kitchen is our big highlight - the perfect place for entertaining. It is very comfortable here, with air conditioning, large rooms, a shaded front porch, and a spacious back yard (like a park!)

Our location is central to many things, either by driving and walking.

Winnipeg is both friendly and affordable, with many many fun things for families to do. At our zoo we have the polar bear research centre: Journey to Churchill, the world famous Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights, NHL hockey team Winnipeg Jets, CFL football team Winnipeg Blue Bombers. We also have many wonderful restaurants, and micro-breweries. We are very multicultural here. During the summer, there are many festivals of culture, theatre, music, and dance.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: James Richardson International Airport (also Winnipeg Airport) - 3 km

Welcome to Charleswood! We are a short bike ride from the entrance to city park (Assiniboine Park), and also from a lovely nature preserve (Fort Whyte). There are a few great restaurants and coffee shops a short distance away too, and a local drug store and grocery store. It's country living in the city, at it's finest. Downtown is only a 20 minute public transit busride away, to access more great sites and shopping!

About Our Family

I love to travel, and am hoping to share this with my young family by participating in exchanges. Last year we hosted three exchange travelers in our home - two students (from Mexico and France) who left us in April 2020, and a lovely teacher from China (short term exchange, fall of 2019). This school year we have an ambitious young gal from Vietnam, as she's finishing her high school diploma before moving to England to attend University next year.

Our home is busy and exciting; our children are respectful, well-behaved and curious! I am looking so forward to exploring the world with them, and all of us creating lasting friendships with you! Happy trails!
