  • Description


    I live in a small shared household (1-2 roommates) in the beautiful town of Campbell River on Vancouver Island BC. I need some help with yardwork and house maintenance. My home is a short walk to either the forest or the ocean and there are lots of hiking trails and lakes nearby. I enjoy showing people the beauty of where I live and enjoy the outdoors by hiking, paddleboarding, mountain biking. I like cooking and meeting new people and am always excited to do some Acroyoga!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You get to explore a part of Vancouver Island that sometimes gets overlooked. There's great access to many outdoor sports and I know lots of beautiful and little-known places if you like to get away from people outside. It's a low-key and active household that likes to have a family feel with shared cooking and meals (when we aren't too busy playing). If you are interested in acroyoga or other types of movement and exercise, we are happy to play. I like meeting new people and sharing stories of our homes and cultures. If you are interested in marine or wildlife biology, there's lots to learn and share as my house currently has two biologists living here. I'm also interested in different spiritual or personal growth practices and am often taking courses or learning new things. Happy to host people exploring different ways of being/living and share ideas and learnings.

  • Help


    I currently need help with painting the outside of my house and doing yard work. It's a rancher so the painting is relatively easy (not high up a ladder).

    This host offers a language exchange
    I have very basic French from school and have learned a bit of Spanish and Italian through travelling. I have very little opportunity to practice and am happy to try to remember what I learned and learn more. Happy to help teach English.

  • Accommodation


    A 3 bedroom rancher on a small city lot with large trees surrounding it. We back on to a school field and the yard is relatively private. We even have an outdoor bathtub! The spare room is of average size with a queen-size bed. The garage has mats on the floor as it's used as a workout space. It's a very friendly neighbourhood and you may find neighbour kids and dogs visiting. We are social people but relatively quiet at home as it's our downtime space.

    I can host 1-2 people if they don't mind sharing a room and bed.

    I will provide basic food items for meals and will cook some meals, when around. Happy to share the cooking as I like cooking together and learning about new foods. There aren't a lot of eating restrictions, just some lactose intolerance. I generally eat a low meat diet and eat healthily and locally, when possible.

    CR is relatively to walk around. There are two shopping areas within a 30 min walk and there is public transit. There are ocean and forest trails about a 10 min walk away. I try to limit my use of my vehicle but can give some rides and will definitely be happy to take someone hiking and out to natural areas. Depending on your size, a bicycle may be available for use.

    What else ...

    There is lots to do in Campbell River and the surrounding area. From exploring beaches to hiking to mountain tops, we have it all. Ocean, river, and lakes if you like water sports. Lots of forested areas with great biking and hiking trails. There's also rock climbing, not too far away in neighboring communities. Great place to explore some of the northern gulf islands from!

    Can possibly accept pets

    I can host a pet as currently, no pets live in my household. I do sometimes dog sit and the neighbour dog often comes to visit.
