We’re a family of four, two kids (7,5) and two cats in cowichan Bay, BC. We are rural and have an amazing property with a beautiful ocean view. Vancouver island is amazing for anyone interested in the outdoors.
Learn about Vancouver island culture, growing vegetables, ocean life and living rurally.
We have a vegetable garden and some ducks. We’re in the process of getting chickens. My husband is very knowledge about homesteading and eager to learn from visitors and share information.
We’ve got a vegetable garden that will need help this summer. Also, maybe some outdoorsy projects around the property.
We have a very small one bedroom house, so we’d need to have you in tents on the property. The ocean view and weather is amazing, so I don’t think you’ll mind.
We own tents, mattresses, sleeping bags, etc. Or feel free to bring your own. We’ve got nice flat grass to pitch the tent on in our garden.
We are happy to share food/meals with visitors. Or if they’d prefer to use our kitchen, that works too! Also we have an outdoor grill that they could use if they prefer privacy.
There’s a ton of hiking around here and ocean sports. Bikes you can borrow. we’re very rural but there are buses that go into Victoria (with a bike ride to the bus stop!)
