    We have lived on our half acre ocean view property for 43 years. We raised two daughters here, and have worked with Rotary sharing our home with exchange youth and business program participants. Kees is retired from the finance industry and now works in fine woodworking. Audrey is a retired elementary school teacher and tutor. We travel to Europe, and across N.America and enjoy entertaining guests from around the world in our home.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We represent a Canadian point of view influenced by a background of Kees having lived on other continents and Audrey being a fifth generation Canadian. We enjoy international travel and interactions.
    Our career backgrounds are finance, and education. Hobbies include woodworking, quilting, knitting and crocheting as well as gardening, and many guests have shown interest in sharing their skills or learning some while here.

    We have encouraged guests to interact with our friends, family and community to experience diversity in ‘what is Canadian’, and/or to explore their interests and careers from a Canadian viewpoint. Participation in cooking, conversation, walks in nature, exploring local points of interest, and community events have been a part of our guests’ interactions.

    Basically, what you will learn here is a Canadian family lifestyle..family, friends, free time,
    What we will learn is your point of view, skills, and sense of adventure.
    We look forward to meeting you

  • Unterkunft


    Our home has one guest room with double bed suitable for single or established couple visitor(s). Accommodation would include stay (bed and meals) for help. This would be booked as one to two weeks at a time maximum on line, but depending on other commitments could be extended while here. We enjoy showing the island to visitors, and if time allows, would extend a daytrip to another area of Vancouver Island. We are within walking distance to Nanoose Bay-Lantzville beach, walking trails through the woods, and to bus routes that take you to the city of Nanaimo. Lantzville/Nanaimo is central on Vancouver Island.. 2-3 hours by car away from Victoria to the south and Long Beach to the West. We are connected to Vancouver / mainland BC by regular BC ferry services. Our home has an indoor-outdoor cat. We are non-smokers and will only accept non-smokers.
