Featured Home Exchange Property #0489: Fernie, British Columbia, Canada

3-bedroom alpine chalet in the spectacular Canadian Rockies -- A good ski trip is not just about shushing down manicured runs on majestic mountain sides.    It also means staying in a cozy chalet near a quaint little village that offers other fun things to do and see to round out a winter holiday. Fernie, in the southeast corner of British Columbia, is just such a place. And the Home Exchange chalet nearby doesn’t come any cozier.
 The chalet is located in the Elk River Valley between Fernie and the Fernie Alpine Ski Resort, a five minute drive to both. The area is known for the highest annual snowfall  in the Rockies (almost 29 feet) and for its amazing powder skiing, making the Fernie Alpine Ski Resort one of the top five resorts in Canada.

 This two-story timber-framed end-unit chalet is a great place to come home to after an exciting day on the slopes. It has 1824 sq. ft. of space and mountain views from every window.  The rear deck has a grill for barbecueing, and a hot tub for soaking, relaxing, and watching the sun set over the Lizard Range.  

 Inside, you can cuddle by a gas fireplace and enjoy an entertainment center for music and big-screen cable TV. High speed internet service is also available. Slate floors in common areas have in-floor radiant heat.

.The kitchen is fully equipped and has a large island for informal seating. The official dining area seats 10.

 The master bedroom has a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom, on the ground level, has a queen-size bed.  The third bedroom is furnished with two bunk-bed sets, both with a double on the bottom and a twin on top. In all, 10 people can turn in at night and snooze in comfort.

 There is also an enclosed heated garage with ski storage area and a full size washer/dryer.

When you feel like venturing into town for a night out in Fernie, there are plenty of places where you can raise a toast to the ski patrol, dine in casual or fine style, dance your buns off, or just dig on jazz tunes or country ballads. 

 For pictures and more information on this wonderful Fernie chalet, click the link above. And to find out more about the International Vacation Home Exchange and its cashless concept for vacationing in style around the world, visit us at www.ivhe.com

Featured Home Exchange #0579: South Africa, Western Cape, Hermanus

5 bedroom luxury home in the heart of whale country

 July to November is when Southern Right Whales return to the coast of Western Cape for calving and mating. A particularly favorite spot for these gentle giants is Walker Bay near the town of Hermanus. They are easily visible from the shore or from the cliffs in the town center. Hermanus is known as one of the best land-based whate watching places in the world.

 The Hermanus Whale Festival  -- 3 October thru 6 October.—celebrates the return of the Right Whale with musical performances, cabaret, great food, quality crafters, sporting events and children’s activities. 

Hermanus, a town with about 33,000 residents, is a lovely two-hour drive from Cape Town. In addition to whale watching, Hermanus boasts breathtaking beaches, sea and mountain scenery, modern infrastructure, upmarket shops, and excellent dining options.

 Your house in Hermanus is located in a quiet, peaceful, rural part of town, but within minutes from the city center and a five-minute walk to the beach. The spacious living room opens onto a wooden deck with a swimming pool, patio with barbecue grill, and awesome views of the sea and mountains. Three of the five bedrooms have queen-sized beds, and each of the others have two single beds. The kitchen is fully equipped.

 The house is equipped with burglar alarms and bars on the windows,  but not to worry. The  intruders they are intended to keep away is a troop of baboons that wanders down from the mountains ocassionally looking for snacks while you are away.

 This home is ideal for a large family vacation or for sharing with friends. Find out more about it, and see great photos, by clicking the property # above.

 You could swap your primary residence, your second home, or your vacation rental for this property with membership in the International Vacation Home Exchange. Find out more about it, and its unique advantages,  by exploring this site further at WHO WE ARE and HOW IT WORKS.
