Full-year exchange: Close to park, lakes, and walking trails

Anticipating sabbatical from 1 Jul 2019 - 30 Jun 2020 (with some flexibility immediately before/after this window), we are looking for academics/professionals/retirees to exchange homes with for the year. We will take excellent care of your home and expect that you will do the same for ours.

We would prefer an exchange with someone in Western North America but would also love to be in Australia, New Zealand, or South America. Willing to consider other places as well. Prefer small cities or more rural locations to large cities but open to all possibilities.

If you are house-proud and looking to exchange homes with someone who will love and care for your home as though it were their own, please contact us!

Our smoke-free, pet-free, carpet-free split-level home was renovated in 2014. With a sun-filled open concept design, this home offers a spacious kitchen with french doors to a rear deck; living room with propane fireplace; 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds; an office with sit-stand desk; one bathroom upstairs and another downstairs; a home gym equipped with free weights and bench, elliptical-stepper, and spin bike; basement recreation room with game table, large-screen TV, and wood-burning stove.

Our home is located in the Dartmouth neighbourhood of the Halifax Regional Municipality, within a short (~15-20 min) commute to Dalhousie University, St. Mary's University, Nova Scotia Community college and near to major bus routes. We are in an excellent school district, with nearby schools at levels K-12.

Our home is 1 block away from the trail system around Lake Banook and access to its rowing/paddling clubs, and only a few blocks away from beautiful Shubie park. Fantastic neighbourhood for people who enjoy walking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, rowing, paddling...

Located in the beautiful province of Nova Scotia, there is so much for you to see, do, and explore while you are here!
