  • Description


    My husband and I live in a lovely waterfront home on the Sechelt Inlet. It is on 3/4 of an acre. We have kayaks and paddle boards to use anytime. We also spend lots of time out on our boat. The town of Sechelt is on BC 's Sunshine Coast, just a 40-minute ferry ride from Vancouver. My husband is a busy realtor. I deal with a couple autoimmune diseases that I seem to be living ok with. We have 1 daughter that lives close by in her own condo and deals with a few health issues as well. She occasionally can use some help as well.
    Plus I need help with keeping up my yard and some housework. The spring brings lots to do in the yard and power washing. If you want to join us for a couple of weeks to help and play we would love to show you around.
