  • Description


    We are a family of three (12 year old daughter). We live on a small, 2 acre farm with an apple/cherry/peach/fig orchard, ducks, chickens and an ocean view. It is in a quiet part of Vancouver Island, but only a 45 minute drive to Victoria. Lots of beautiful hiking trails, including one starting just 100 metres from our house that leads you to waterfalls and the ocean. We also have two loving cats and a small dog.
