  • Description


    I have a Lovely 2 acre parcel of land alongside the Beautiful Coquihalla River just upstream from The world renowned Othello Tunnels home to many A list Movie shoots

    I have a two room rental.
    And need help covering those duties as I am committed to volunteering for my community Aug 19-22
    And really need someone please

    It only takes a couple hours at most on those days

    Apart from that some garden work and help organizing some Readiness for fall which is not too far away
    ..I am disabled and some things I just can't do by myself

    Thanks very much,easy going house and laughter is part of the deal

    A smile helps the day pass

    WiFi for connecting with family etc , Lots of hiking trails in the area and Kawkawa Lake is just a 5 minute drive away

    Just a 10 minute walk to The Othello Tunnels mentioned above and they are in a Provincial Park ..They just did some scenes there for the feature movie "Planet of The Apes " starring Woody Harrelson and last summer Jason Momoa in a film named See on Apple tv I believe

    I live here with my Buddy ( Keeper) best dog ever and his new kitten Joy :) he loves his cats, and my Children and grand Children visit and enjoy the River to play in

    I look forward to answering any questions you may have and be ready to have fun...things need to be done but in a fun way....

    I really enjoy learning about other cultures and share mine..it can be great Fun..:)

    Thanks so much for considering my river /forest

    Cheers, Graham
