Home Exchange Salt Spring / UK

Hi Scott,

We are seeking a sabbatical from Salt Spring, and accordingly trying to find a long term house exchange with a couple in the UK. It occurred to me that you might have the occasional inquiry from folks considering selling up and relocating to our lovely island, but who might like the opportunity to try before they buy. I’m registered with a couple of home-exchange sites, but the listings are largely for 2 – 3 week exchanges. We’re interested in at least 6 months, and we are aiming to do this in the fall of this year.

I realize this is a bit of a flyer, but you might just have a potential client who’d like an inexpensive opportunity to audition Salt Spring in exchange for letting us stay in their home.

We’re offering our cozy home at 122 Woodhall Place, which has one bedroom, two offices, 1.5 bath, separate tv room, living/dining, kitchen, and a full basement. We back onto the woods up behind the pool and the common property is on another side of our one third acre. It feels quite rural, but is nicely located within walking distance of virtually everything.

    Would you consider a house exchange in the Laurentian in Quebec?
    We have a beautifull 3 bedroom 2 bathroom with fireplace and a private acces to a lake, lots of cross country trails, alpine ski hills , snowshoeing, biking, hiking… 1 hour drive from Montreal…
    We would like to live on Salt spring island and that would be great to experience it first and take time to pick the land we want.
    thank you!

      Bon jour, Sara,
      It is a good idea, isn’t it, and I hope you find someone to swap with you and that you work with Scott if and when you get here. You might put your own request on to the Salt Spring Exchange.
      However, we are set on the UK I’m afraid. I love the Laurentians, but we do have a family cottage in Muskoka so we get east a couple of times a year. If you want, get in touch with me again as I have a few friends/acquaintances here who do house exchanges, albeit more short term.

    Hi there,
    My business partner and I are coming to Salt Spring for 6 weeks in October to November this year to undertake a fellowship with a local consultancy business.
    We have a 3 bedroom house in Brighton, England, on the edge of the South Downs national park and close to the ocean . London is also approx 1 and a half hours by train.
    If you look on Google Map, the post code for our address is BN41 2YH. I can send you photos of the property, if you are interested.
    If this is something that you would like to discuss further, please do get in touch.
    We are very clean, non-smokers, who run a self development training and coaching business.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Best regards,
    Tony Fiedler
