  • Description


    .Update: we are booked for 2024. Thanks for your interest. If anything changes, we will update the listing. Have a great year everyone.

    We are looking for a person (or 2) that can house sit for a few days. You would stay with us for a couple of weeks, so we can show you the chores before we will be leaving. You will then be in charge for a few days. Once we are back, you can either stay a bit longer or continue with your adventure

    We are located in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. My husband and I have 4 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 vineyard - no kids. Our helper would have to be an outdoorsy person, dog & horse lover, interested in natural horsemanship and be a good rider. In exchange for your volunteering, you have room & board, internet access, are included in all activities, and we play with the horses or we go riding. Are you a non-smoking, self motivated, outdoorsy & fit person, then we would love to meet you.
