My wife and I own five acres on the beautiful Sunshine Coast just a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver, BC, Canada. We are huge animal lovers and currently own horses, an emu, chickens, dogs and a cat. We also grow much of our own food with our vegetable garden and a fruit orchard. My wife is retired and spends much of her days schooling our horses while I teach art in North Vancouver and have a working art studio on the property. There is also a suite which we rent to guests but also use for rooming family and friends. If you are not familiar with the Cosst, I suggest you make a trip and explore our expansive shorelines and forests. It is truly paradise!
The Sunshine Coast is a magical place and so close to Vancouver. The natural world here is rich and we have a thriving tourist industry which peeks in the summer months. The Coast is also known for it arts community and hosts a variety cultural festivals.
We have a lot on our plate and require help with odd jobs around the property, anything from gardening to muckingbout horse stalls to repairing fences .
We have a private accommodation on the second floor of the art studio. It has all amenities but a stove; however we provide a BBQ. We would provide room and board in exchange for 5 hours of help per day.
Once you arrive on the coast we would pick you up at the ferry and drive you to our place - a ten minute drive. We are located in Gibsons and are surrounded by a network or roads and trails that lead to all the local stores and sights.
