My name is Caitlin. My partner, Maverick, and I live in one of two houses on a small acreage and my mom, Heather, lives in the other. My brother, Alex, lives in the neighborhood and he and his girlfriend, Lily spend quite a bit of time at our property. We have two cats, Wallie and Toby, and two dogs, Meeka and Stevie.
Help around the house
We live 20 minutes outside the small mountain town of Nelson, BC. There are lots of hiking and biking trails near by. Several local swimming holes within a ten minute drive. The town of Nelson has many interesting shops and delicious restaurants.
We are looking for gardening help as well as general help around the property. Some painting and possibly some dog walking. We prefer to have workawyers for shorter stays, two or three weeks.
Workawayers will have the basement of our house to themselves. The basement has its own entrance, three bedrooms, one bathroom and a living room. Because of covid we have decided to put a small fridge, a hot plate, and a toaster oven in the basement in order to minimize contact.
Because covid is still ongoing we will try to keep some separation. Workawayers will have their own kitchen space and we will purchase whatever groceries they want.
Because we live outside of town and most of the local activities are a drive away, our house might be preferable for workawayers with a car, however there is a bus that goes into Nelson three times a day.
