    Beschreibung

    We are in our late-60's and live on a ½ acre Just outside of small town (pop 35,000). We are no longer able to do everything ourselves. There are some great plans and projects, but we need help to make them happen!

    Right now, mid-August, we are both exhausted from such a busy summer. An extra pair of hands would make a big difference. It would be a fun place to spend a few weeks too.

    In September we will have some projects and the garden. In November we will need help to clean up the garden, rake leaves and help with whatever other projects Matt dreams up!

    Interested in a winter stay? Will will need a couple to house-sit for 3 months, January, February and March. Please note that we will only consider couples. It is an eclectic and interesting house - not your average suburban house sit. It can be challenging in the winter if there is much snow, as there has been for the last couple of years. If you are interested, let us know and we can Skype with more details.

    We enjoy sharing a tolerant lifestyle, and run two vacation rentals with a clothing optional swimming pool which is open from May - September!

    Matthew is a retired architect who takes a hands on approach to life, Jane is an experienced gardener with her own style. She loves to cook too. Workaways are totally treated as a part of the family. We are a quiet couple at home, enjoying evenings with a book, playing games or watching British TV shows or documentaries. But we also enjoy getting together with a varied group of friends, and Workaways will always be included in such gatherings!

    We like to live well, to enjoy the good things in life, but keep to a very economic budget, so we can also have money to travel! We would like to share some of these ideas and our lifestyle.

    We like to start work early and finish early so there's lots of time in the afternoon to enjoy. This is a good area to walk, hike, kayak and bike, and an excellent climbing area at Skaha Bluffs, in addition to the lake and vineyards that make this area so special.
    There are bikes available for your use if you would like. We are out of town a bit, but it is a very easy walk or bike to downtown. Apex is nearby. It is a great ski hill but in summer all the runs become awesome mountain biking and hiking trails. In ski season there challenging runs, cross-country and snow-shoeing trails.
