  • Description


    I am a single dad with one daughter which works night shifts. I live in victoria bc canada on a large boat with a spare bedroom. Im looking for help when i go to work regarding care for my 11 year old daughter. I have her every second week and it should only be for four days per month while she is sleeping, and so can you.

    It would be nice to introduce her to other cultures, so this seems to be a great way to do this. My boat is about a half hour away from Victoria in a stunning harbor. Its the last boat on the docks so it has a great view. There is fishing and crabing here a lake across the road with great swimming too. I do like driving and exploring this beautiful island so trips to vic and many other places could be often. I also often stay on a resort on galliano where i build ponds so that could be another option if your willing to do either house cleaning or light landscape art. This is on Galliano Island...Please contact me for more details

  • Accommodation


    Its a 50ft hans christian sail boat set in a beautiful cove not to far from west shore and victoria. You will have your own room but common area is shared. I spend much time at a resort so you can either stay on the boat on your own or come to resort to help with either house work or landscape. There the accommodation is different each time house, coach line buse or cabin. There im building eco friendly living ideas.
