  • Description


    We are a couple in our very late 50's and mid 60's. We have a very large property and a house that we are getting ready for renos. We need help with relocating furniture and packing up in preparation for renovations and general maintenance around the property. We live on an amazing island, a short twenty minute ferry ride from Vancouver. It is a small village with many amenities. The helpers we would host would have their own private, self contained suite for their stay. We are directly on the ocean, and the person will enjoy spectacular mountain and ocean views from their suite. We might also need help with packing. we always appreciate the opportunity to have a phone conversation with WhatsApp before making decisions.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is so much to see and do in Vancouver!!! You can do as much or as little as your heart desires. The island is a quiet and calm place, with beautiful natural surroundings. The village is small and quaint. This location is ideal for someone who likes nature, walks in the forest, and beautiful scenery and a calm environment. Of course the city is easily accessed. The island has some transportation to various parts of the island, but this is a rural setting and you need to be willing to travel on foot to get to the ferry. This is a good 15 minute walk over hilly Terrain.
