Family home in sunny Okanagan valley

We are 35 minutes from Kelowna Airport (YLW), or 5 hours (455kms) by car from Vancouver Airport (YVR). The Okanagan is hot and sunny in the summer, and there are several attractive beaches within 5 to 20 minutes of our home. There are 6 golf courses within 30 minutes, and Silver Star Mountain Resort for winter skiing or summer hiking and biking is 35 minutes away. Our home is well-equipped for 2 couples or a family with children -- 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and extra space in our family room or basement. There is a large covered deck with a barbecue, and an extensive valley view. We have WiFi, Netflix, and a trampoline. We are new to Intervac, but have completed two home and car exchanges, as well as hosting numerous travellers through many organizations.

Our vehicle is a five passenger 2007 Lexus RX400h -- this is an all-wheel drive Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). It's very comfortable for long drives, but not suitable for "off-road" use.

About Our Family

We are a retired couple who have travelled extensively throughout our lives, both together and separately. We have two grown children who live on their own. We also have a 12 year old chocolate lab, who will stay with friends when we travel.


We have some flexibility around our travel dates & places, so a concurrent exchange is not essential. Our priority is two to four weeks in France in the summer of 2018. We're particularly interested in areas outside major cities. We've visited France a few times, & hope to include a canal boat rental either before or after our exchange. Before or after summer 2018, we'll consider offers from anywhere.
