    We live in a beautiful small town built around a large lake and surrounded by mountains. The ocean is 20 minutes away and 2 larger cities are an hour each way. (victoria and Nanaimo) There are many outdoor activities such as kayaking, fishing, hiking, boating, swimming etc at your finger tips.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The kids are young and full of energy. They go to Daycare a few days a week but i would like some help the other days. Our dog, Abby, is 12 and the sweetest dog.

    We try to eat healthy and I cook most meals at home.
    I would love help cooking and to learn new recipes from other cultures

    There is a trail across from our home- walking distance to grocery store, bank, restaurants, lake ect... There is also a bus stop (both directions) right in front of our home.

    We like to camp on the lake in the late spring/summer and you are welcome to join us
