  • Description


    ATTENTION PLEASE: I have received many messages from people that do not know that Vancouver Island is not Vancouver City. Please take the time to view the difference ( google maps? ) before contacting us.

    We are looking forward to hosting people from around the globe in our Comox Valley home.

    Hiking, biking, beach combing, and more are all accessible from the door.
    Vancouver Island has much to offer!

We will provide room/board, good company and help with English language skills. We love being tourists where we live, so it will be fun to show you around the area too.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are in the Comox Valley which is a 3 hour long drive north of Victoria, BC.

    There are trails that can be accessed from our door by foot but many other areas to explore on Vancouver Island too. The ocean is minutes from our home for beach walking, running or water sports.

    Vancouver Island is home to Canada's highest water falls and it could be fun to explore the area either independently or with us.
