  • Description


    Hi There, we welcome you to our lives! We have a 4 year old and a 2 year old, both very sweet heathy girls. We own a neighbourhood pub and live just down the street from it. We have a spare room at our house and a spare room above the pub that can be used. Public transit is just a 3-5 minute walk from accommodation and can get you to Victoria or other major cities within an hour. We also have a lake house in Lake Cowichan, BC. There are spare rooms on this brand new lakefront house with private dock. We are in our mid 30's and just need a bit of extra help around the house and other properties. It's pretty much a perfect set up with lots of little jobs that we just don't get to doing because of the busy lifestyle with kids and business. Come hang out with us and you'll surely enjoy your time! Oh, and we almost forgot, our little Weiner Dog Lexi. She's part of the family too!

    Our neighbourhood pub has been here for 35 years. We have many interesting regulars who come daily and have lots of great things to offer. Time off on the dock at the lake is definitely something that is very attractive too. Our neighbours are young and great to socialize with as well. Plenty of good people around to make great connections with.
