  • Description


    We are a mature family living in a popular suburb of Victoria British Columbia on the beautiful Vancouver Island. We enjoy the natural surroundings of our neighbourhood which is a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk to the ocean. We are also very close to the forest (near Royal Roads University) where we take our two dogs for their daily walks.
    Our house has a guest bedroom for you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will get to explore the island on the days off and when we have free time, we will take you on outings here and there to visit the lagoon, Thetis Lake, Fort Rodd Hill, Goldstream Park, etc. You will be part of our family for the time you are with us so we can discuss what you hope to learn.

  • Help


    We are looking to have help in the yard with weeding, etc but we don't expect you to know everything. We will also need some help around the house. Food is included and you will be responsible to prepare your own breakfast & lunch as well as meal prep for dinner when you are planning to be home for dinner (also this will be a shared venture when we are home).

    We would be looking for a maximum of 4.5 hours a day with two days off per week or you can work more hours over the week so you can take 3 days off to travel the island.

    Our house is your home away from home and you are welcome to use the living room, yard, pation - wherever! (-: If you enjoy photography or oil painting - we would welcome spending time together sharing these hobbies!

  • Accommodation


    A private bedroom in our house with access to a shared bathroom.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are very close to so many amenities including Thetis Lake, Esquimalt Lagoon, Fort Rodd Hill, Goldstream Park, Langford Lake etc. Other things you might enjoy on your days off include Butchart Garden, the Victoria Inner Harbour, the Victoria Symphony, art gallery etc. We are very close to bus routes and bike trails. The Galloping Goose Bike Trail takes you right into Victoria for example. While there are many interesting places to visit on Vancouver Island, we are just a short ferry ride to Vancouver BC and Seattle Washington where you would probably like to explore on your days off!
