Hi there! I'm Beverley, a widow and proud mother of two amazing sons, Leo and Patrick. We are a happy family who loves adventure and living life to the fullest. We have been welcoming people from around the world into our home since 2008. We are interested in meeting other country folk and learning about their culture and lifestyle. Suppertime is always the highlight of the day as we take time to sit down to good healthy food and share conversation and stories about our day or life.
Cooking is one of my passions so I like to spend time in the kitchen preparing tasty food from different cuisines. I also love playing and relaxing with my children who are the light of my life! Leo is 14 years old and is crazy about soccer. He breathes, eats and sleeps soccer and is a fan of FC Barcelona. Patrick is 11 and loves anything to do with tinkering and building. He is quite imaginative with his LEGO creations and inventing new uses from ordinary objects!
We live in the quaint city of Duncan on Vancouver Island in the province of British Columbia. We are surrounded by beautiful nature and have the mountains, ocean, rivers and lakes all around us.
DIY and building projects
We are a loving, fun and kind family and hope you will join us in our free time. At home we enjoy playing board games and watching movies. On the weekends we like to visit new places and explore the amazing nature on Vancouver Island. If English isn't your native language, this would be a wonderful opportunity to improve your English skills as you completely immerse yourself in our warm and comfortable environment. I am an English teacher and would happily give lessons for you to improve your communication skills. We offer guests a chance to become a part of our family and to experience the beautiful easy-living atmosphere here on Vancouver Island.
I would like to host a male from Spain to practise Spanish with my oldest son. Other help needed can vary from working in the garden or staining the deck and fence. Nothing is too demanding and I am very flexible with hours.
You will have your own private bedroom and have access to the guest bathroom.
You are free on Saturdays and Sundays to do what you like or you can join us when we do fun activities and sightseeing. There is a free return pub shuttle bus that will pick you up from my house if you'd like to mingle with locals and enjoy good craft beer. There are buses that go to Victoria (one hour travelling time) and return in the evening. You are welcome to use my vehicle to drive into town in the evening when I don't need it. There is also a bike for you to use.
