  • Description


    We need help from mid July through August and possibly September. thanks ! :-)

    Our home is centrally located on Salt Spring Island and a 15-20 min walk on a trail to town. Or you can walk 5 min to the bus stop to take you anywhere around the island. We have 3 decks plus a garden area to relax in. We are a couple (two women) in our 50/60s who love nature, cooking, swimming in lakes and hiking. We are retired and loving life on Salt Spring after moving here nearly a year ago. Looking for shorter stays - about 1 week.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have both travelled a lot and love to meet people from around the world. We like hiking, swimming, cooking; reading and playing games. We speak English and a little French and Spanish.

    Salt Spring Island is a beautiful place with very friendly people. There are opportunities to kayak, swim in ocean or lakes, paddle board, hike etc. Also there are many events happening all the time like live music, art, and an amazing weekly market. There's always something fun and interesting to do here! You can get to Salt Spring Island by ferry from either Vancouver or Victoria, BC. There is bus service on the island.

    We have a relatively small property and need help with gardening, general yard work and stacking firewood. We also need some long planks of wood cut into smaller pieces with a power saw. Also, some weeding; watering; raking; pruning; cleaning and general house maintenance depending on your skills and abilities.
