Flat in Victoria, Canada

Dear Intervac friends,
We are a family of three and live in a new ground floor condo (2 bedroom/den/2 bath - 1350 sq. ft / 125 m2) that is within a 25 minute walk or 10 minute bike ride on city trails to Victoria's downtown.  The primary photo is of the Gorge waterway, just steps from our home.  (That's our cat in the bottom left)  The trestle bridge is part of the trail system that winds through the entire city region.  
Within just a few minutes walk, you can either be at a seaside restaurant, in a restful park, kayaking to the harbour or playing tennis.   Within a few minutes drive are the city's theatres, beaches, golf courses... nothing is more than 15 minutes away.  Our home is stylish and comfortable in a quiet neighbourhood.  We have a SW-facing back patio/deck and courtyard access, which offers extra space and privacy.
Our home has a 'ranch' style lay-out, with an open central living area. We have a large, well equipped kitchen (gas new fridge/freezer, dishwasher, garburator, microwave).  We also have a natural gas barbecue on our patio.  Just inside the front door to the left is a small laundry room with stacked front-loading washer and dryer.  The den has has a very comfortable pull out sofa, and privacy blinds should someone use it as a spare bedroom.
With our daughter Naia still in school, the best time to travel for us is during the school holidays.  We have two weeks during her spring break in March, two weeks at Christmas and summer, preferably August.  We would like to spend some extended time in Europe, particularly Italy, France and Spain.  But we are open to other countries.  (Though not bilingual, we speak some French and Spanish.)
 We are very responsible and would care for your home as our own.   We look forward to hearing from you!
