    Description

    First of all , you must love dogs....and living in a small town.
    I like to say that we live in paradise. It is magical here on the West Coast
    It was my dream to live here some day - and it became reality!!
    I am a single Lady living in this wonderful part of Canada and am working as Interior Designer.

    We also have a country cabin that always needs lots of maintenance work. So if you are handy with tools that would be fabulous. There is a possibility of being alone in the home while I work - there are always the dogs to keep you company!

    The work would be that of a housekeeper for the apartment, and 2 dogs. Making sure things are tidy and clean. Cooking, cleaning, vacuum almost daily, help with lots of walks and outdoor play.
    Dog walks are usually a 1.5 hour walk along to the park or along the ocean.
    Also visits to my mom (97) she loves when people come and spend some time with her and chat over coffee and cake.
    Ideally for someone that would like to learn English, learn the West Coast Culture and loves
    older people and conversation.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are ourselves from another country (Germany) and appreciate the steps it takes to learn another culture, the awareness of all the detail in the language and love to show off our beautiful and interesting countryside and town of Sidney by the Sea.
