  • Description


    Beautiful Salt Spring Island, on the west coast of BC is an island of artists, musicians and rural farms. A scenic ferry ride from Vancouver or Victoria, my home rests beside a sandy/rocky beach perfect for beach walks. The adjacent government dock provides spectacular sunsets after dining at the local restaurant or cafe located 2 minutes away. Biking, hiking, and fresh water swimming in the largest lake on the island are just a few of the things you will find to keep you happy. There is music somewhere in our small town almost every night, and over 120 artists studios to explore.
    I am a professional , who needs help with my home and .5 acre property. I have a big family (they live nearby) love to read, cook, and have traveled extensively. I love to meet new people, and like to preserve my privacy as well.
    I am on a bus route, have bikes for your use.

    As a fellow traveler introducing others to the West Coast of B.C, it's beauty and natural wonders is a learning in itself!
