  • Description

    Description

    We have a beautiful 10 acre property in wine country British Columbia. My husband and myself live in our 3 bedroom home. We have a lovely guesthouse beside the large heated swimming pool. My elderly parents have a home on our property as well. We are situated 10 kilometres from the town of Oliver in the southern Okanagan Valley. The weather is beautiful most of the summer and the fruit is plentiful. It can be very warm here as we are semi arid. It is known as the Sunny Okanagan. This is a tourist destination in the summer known for beaches and an abundance of fruit. We have several hundred wineries within our Okanagan Valley.

    We are looking for gardeners to maintain our property. Must be able to drive both lawn mowers and tractors. Someone who is somewhat mechanically inclined would be beneficial. There may be some small landscaping projects that need to be done. We have a large vegetable garden as well.

    What else ...

    There are literally 100’s of vineyards and wineries surrounding us. Beautiful lakes and fabulous hiking nearby. We have bicycles including ebikes. We spend quite a bit of time at home as I quilt and my husband is a photographer. We have a pond in our yard that attracts plenty of wildlife. I love to cook and spend a lot of time doing that as well. We love to travel with our RV to go golfing so that is why we need help with our property management
