  • Description


    My husband and I live in a nice three bedroom house in beautiful Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Victoria is an international tourist destination with lots of tourist sites and surrounded by sea and nature. Our cat "Pookie" recently passed away but brought home a visitor that we like to take care of now.

  • Help


    Organic urban gardening. Cooking. Housework. Personal care. We are offering a paid job for those interested in staying at least 2-3 months.
    Our place can be very busy and noisy and sometimes the work can be mundane like weeding, cleaning, dusting, cooking,
    Because of needing help with personal care, it is best if you are a woman.
    I am an activist in the community and often need assistance to do my volunteer work.
    At the moment I am asking travelers to be double vaccinated.
