  • Description


    We are a friendly family living on the corner of our family farm in the Comox Valley, one of the most beautiful and welcoming places on earth.The Valley is a mecca for musicians,actors and artists and has as a wide variety of wineries and distilleries and farm markets. Tom is a courier with Loomis, Anne is an artist running her own Paint with Me party business. Our British niece Jess lives with us as well and she works in a chocolate shop and runs her own social media/copywriting business. We live on an acre in the country in a rambling house with lots of outbuildings, only a few minutes from the lovely town of Courtenay at the foot of Mount Washington. We have 2 cats, Lotti and Daphne.
    We are all involved in art, theatre and music and love to have guests. Your private room has a comfy double bed in the house or in the little Chicken Coop Studio furnished with a double bed with skylight and electric piano. We eat well and have all the amenities as well as an alarming collection of musical instruments.Close to the beach and town and love to show our area off to newbies. We are looking people who are skilled at cleaning, electrical ,plumbing, drywalling, painting and carpentry. Our oldest daughter is getting married this summer and we would love some help sprucing the place up! We would trade 5 hours a day room and board for some help.
