    We are located close to Maple Bay, ten short driving minutes from Duncan in the heart of the Cowichan Valley
    Whatever your fancy, we have it all.
    Winery tours, outdoor markets, music, many artisans, wildlife, deer often seen in the front yard, birds and sometimes even whales right here in our bay.
    There’s a new museum which has just opened The Hands of Man. It’s absolutely amazing with private collections from all over the world.
    Enjoy taking in the peaceful country roads which take you back to a time gone by.

    Walking distance (2 km ) to the beach, and 5 minute walk to mountain bike and hiking trails, make my property a wonderful place to adventure from or take a break from the hustle and bustle.

    Looking for a little additional help with organizing and purging of belongings, as I am hoping to downsize. Have a large flower and vegetable garden and need help with basic house maintenance, yard care, vegetable harvest and pruning.
