  • Description

    Description

    We are a 3 generation family that needs help with yard and house maintenance from time to time. Short notice inquiries rather then long range planning works best for us as the help required and accommodation changes too rapidly to make arrangements months ahead. We live on the ocean in a lovely small town on the Sunshine Coast of B.C., just 2.5 hours from Vancouver Int'l Airport. It is accessed by ferry or seaplane, and would be considered a remote destination. Sechelt (a bigger town) is a 30 minute drive, and the entire coast is ~150 kilometres from one end (Langdale) to the other (Earls Cove). We eat a lot of seafood.

    I have a vintage trailer that sleeps 1-2 people. Has private bathroom but shared shower elsewhere. Fully stocked kitchen and dining table inside with sink, bbq and firepit outside. If you have your own rv (or vehicle) for sleeping then bringing a pet is ok.
