We are empty nesters, living in a spacious house in beautiful Nanaimo (85000 people) on Vancouver Island. I teach at the local University and my wife runs a cake business. If you are looking for a place in Canada where the winters do not get too cold, this is us!
We need help with general maintenance in and around the house, some renovations, gardening, landscaping, help in the kitchen, shopping, supporting some events etc.
We love having people around and will try to make you feel home away from home.
We can pick you up from the ferry or airport.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We are a good landing pad to explore or settle into Canada as we happily provide start up advice.
As a little side benefit, we are beekeepers, so if you are interested you can learn about that as well.
We also have four very well behaved cats.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help with general maintenance, gardening in and around the house. Unless we have time critical tasks, we tend to offer some flexibility on the hours.
In light of COVID 19, everything will have to evolve and be handled in line with quarantine requirements. So we will probably provide you with a home away from home in our large and very comfy 28" motorhome (has a queen size bed, bathroom, kitchen etc). We would share food, BBQ etc though, it's just a layer of extra caution designed to keep all parties involved safe.
Lots to do and suggest! We want to make sure you enjoy yourself here!
