  • Description


    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!
