The front yard has a small garden and planters for those who are interested in some hobby gardening, but can also be kept up entirely by the landscaping company.

About Me
I am a long-term employee and graduate of UBC, working in research and grant development. I live in North Vancouver with my husband, toddler and soon to be second child. My husband and I both grew up in Kingston Ontario and are looking to spend a portion of my upcoming maternity leave back home to spend time with our old friends and to allow our kids to have more time with grandparents. My husband is an engineer and will work remotely from Kingston. We own a lovely 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhouse in North Vancouver, built just 5 years ago and situated very close to the local ski hills and mountain biking trails. We're open to house swaps or rentals. North Vancouver is a quick and beautiful 1.5 hour drive from Whistler, making daytrips a breeze. We're 15 minutes from downtown Vancouver and all it's amenities, events, nearby beaches and amazing sunsets. We love it here and you would too. My husband and I are experienced travelers who love culturally interesting travel and great food but now have little ones under foot. So, we're looking for a family-friendly adventure. Feel free to get in touch with swap ideas or to inquire about renting our place.
