  • Description


    We are a married couple who travels the world, enjoys hosting lots, and seeking out adventures. We spend our time diving, jumping out of planes, playing music, dancing and climbing trees. We also have a fun, adventurous and exciting 14 month old daughter who runs around everywhere! My lovely lady and I are big dreamers without enough hands to do the work we want to do! Who wants to share stories, help out, and stay in Victoria for a bit?

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I've hosted hundreds of people and love the hospitality portion. I really enjoy taking my guests to some amazing spots on Vancouver Island and suggesting places to go when I'm not available. I'm doing a home renovation project and visitors will also learn lots of things about rebuilding a home to include electrical wiring, framing, tiling, building cabinets, home siding, and more.

  • Help


    We are doing a home renovation project and could use a hand doing a lot of the landscaping portion. There will be lots of digging, moving huge loads as well as reconstructing the house inside.

    We also have a daughter who is pure happiness! We would like to find people who enjoy children as it would be occasionally really nice to get some work done while someone looks after our child. This wouldn't be the regular work but would be an exceptional break!

    The response percentage is very low because we haven't bothered responding during covid, but we are back! Message if you're serious. :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I live on a direct bus route to downtown Victoria, so it's easy to access when you want to go enjoy the city. If you come with a vehicle, it's actually pretty good as well since I live in close proximity to many great outdoor adventures.
