We are a vibrant family of four adults and four young adults aged 19-23 - two boys and two girls. We have dogs, cats, and a 100 year old house which always seems to be a natural gathering place. Our property is a seven acre, sunny slice of heaven in Metchosin BC, just 30 minutes west of Victoria. Enjoy a morning coffee on the deck overlooking the ocean and mountains. Nearby are some of the best beaches and hikes on the south island. We operate a small hobby farm and, we can always use some help from open minded, creative individuals who would like to assist in building projects, gardening, painting, weeding, or other skills that you would like to share. We welcome LGBT.
