  • Description


    Our family has enjoyed sharing our home with travelers to hear of there stories, adventures and dreams. For us, it is wonderful to be a part of your travel experience. Hoping to fine someone who would like to come over for a longer period. It's sad to meet nice people and have to say goodbye too soon. We are quiet, respectful, outgoing and cheerful, hope to find the same as a guest. Ready to host, so plan now and message me.

    We have a private fully furnished suite recently renovated! I am a hardworking solo father to a daughter 13 and son 10. I take pride in my home and would be happy to have a work away to help me out with food prep, getting kids to and from school and general tasks around the home. If you can teach keyboards, guitar or sports that would be a bonus. I live in a respectful town home, that has a separate guest suite, including internet, TV, seperate bathroom and kitchen, shared laundry room that you would have access to during your stay with us. Someone who is comfortable being with children is a must. During your off time you would have the freedom to explore the lower mainland as we have easy access to transit and live close to many parks lakes trails and even a recreation center.
