  • Description


    Hello there! I'm a single mother and own a beautiful big home located in the heart of Brentwood Bay (25 min drive from Victoria BC). I'm organizing a few house renovations which include: painting & gardening mainly.
    I need help in house for 5 hours / day from Monday to Friday. We can also plan to work longer days if you’re interested in taking Friday's off : I’m very flexible with hours and we can work out a flexible schedule to accommodate your needs.
    We sometimes start working at 8 or 9 am but depending on the project we might start at 1 pm and work during the afternoon
    Food is provided for you to cook: we can sometimes cook together and share communal meals
    I share my home with amazing young and fun roommates so we are looking forward to welcome someone that can fit our lovely home.
    A small room furnished with queen size bed, cupboard and closet is provided along with bedding and toiletry.

    It is a huge home with 2 separate living spaces (the upstairs and the downstairs suite)
    We can enjoy the house on it's whole : huge deck and natural gas BBQ on the top floor with views of Malahat mountain range and glimpse of water (2 blocks away from the Ocean and town center)
