  • Description


    Oct 19 2019 Hi, I live in one of the most beautiful parts of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, a 2 hour ferry ride from Vancouver.

    I have a large property 1/2 Block from Departure Bay Beach. I am always in need of help around my property doing yard work and handyman projects.

    My children are grow and I live here with my long time girlfriend. We love to travel and when we can’t travel we love to meet travelers.

    Hosting volunteers has been a wonderful experience and we have made friends with people from around the world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Nanaimo is a small city so it has the best to offer with lots of summer activities and festivals as well as endless beachfront parks and outdoor and hiking areas.

    I have lived here for 23 years and enjoy helping travelers get the most from their experience. Occasionally I will even take them around to see some of the wonderful places I enjoy visiting over and over.

    At times we will have dinners or Barbecues with friends and family and always include our guests.

    Feb 18 2019 Hi I’m looking for general help around my place. I’m also looking for someone with Carpentry Skils to help work on my Tiny Home. Please contact me if you are interested. Thanks

    I have other tasks available, some are seasonal such as yard maintenance, cutting grass, weeding and general clean up, handyman projects as well as some house cleaning or what ever else I need help with.

    Nanaimo is central to Vancouver Island and The Pacific Playground. There is good transportation to all the best tourist destinations on the island.

    The ferry to Nanaimo is the easiest to get to on the Vancouver side and drops you off in the middle of the city. I live 3 km from the ferry terminal here in Nanaimo so I can usually pick people up.

    Victoria is 1.5 hrs
    Toffino is 3.5 hrs
    Paksville is 40 min
    Coombs is 40 min
    Port Alberni is 1 hr
    Comox is 1 hr
    Campbell River is 1.5 hrs
    Port Hardy is 4 hrs

    There are plenty of Beachfront parks or forested hikes near my house 10 to 20 min walk, bike ride or bus.

    7-11 5 min walk
    Groceries/mall 20 min walk or 5 min bus
    Beach 1 min walk

    Sorry no pets
