  • Description


    Hello ! My name is Ahnnalee .

    I have a large garden. I think it's beautiful but it is a challenge for one person alone. The area needs lots of maintenance and can be quite hard work. It would be great if someone could also help me with computer issues, cooking and cleaning. I love classical piano. If you are musician that likes it as well, you are very welcome!

    I would be happy with a single but we have room for a couple. We need someone who is clean, tidy, and quiet . I would like them to be good companions - fit, energetic, positive thinking, caring, compassionate, and non-smoking. I supply food for breakfast and lunch. We share tasks of dinner preparation and eat together.

    We live in a quiet area in Richmond, BC, a suburb of Vancouver. Whistler is 2 hours away by car. Stanley park is about an hour away by public transportation.

    Our house is on two levels and I live in the lower level. A work-awayer (s) would share the upper level and would have privacy when not actually helping. The bedroom, upstairs kitchen, and a lounging area would be available for their personal use. Keeping that shared area clean is essential.

    I was a teacher. I like working with others. My English skills are excellent and I could help with language development. I'm interested in maintaining health through natural means.

    The person or persons would have a private room with shared kitchen and washroom on the upper level in our house. It needs to kept bright and clean.

    I really like home-cooked, healthy food. I supply meals (breakfast,lunch & dinner) as exchange as well. There is a large kitchen upstairs (and mine is downstairs) so we could talk about who will do the cooking and which kitchen will be used.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The Vancouver area is a great place to visit.
    A short walk from my home takes one to a walk with a view out over the water.
    Vancouver is easily accessible using public transportation. Access to the ferry to Vancouver Island is easy from where we are. Whistler, Grouse, and Seymour Mountains are easy travelling distances away. I'm located 15 minute drive from Vancouver International Airport.

    I have had lots of experience working with others and could use some cheerful companionship. Musicians and chefs are very welcome !!

    Although I think positive energy and enthusiasm are important, it is important to me to maintain a calm and quiet atmosphere around the house.
