    Description

    We are a family of three, husband, wife and daughter living in Cowichan Bay on the sunny east cost of Vancouver Island.

    We are looking for someone to stay for 7-10 days in May or June, to help with gardening, some maintenance jobs and fencing. We know know several other families who like to have Workaway so we can always recommend you to others if would like to stay in the Valley for longer. There is plenty of privacy, with your own suite with private bathroom. Our food is mostly organic, and you are welcome to eat with us.

    Our house looks out over the sea and Gulf Islands. We have bicycles for use, which can be used to get to the Cowichan Bay village centre, where there are shops, cafes, marinas etc. We have hiking trails nearby and are a five minute walk to the beach. We are a 45 minute drive to Victoria; there is also a bus service to and from Victoria on a daily basis.
