We're located on the Sunshine Coast British Columbia in the town of Sechelt. It is accessed by a 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver. Our home is waterfront on the Sechelt Inlet and offers opportunities for workawayers to hike, bike, kayak, and explore the coastal waters during their free time.
We have ongoing gardening, house maintenance and general beach cleanup. We also have dreams of completing carpentry projects including complete bathroom renovation, mud room built in the garage, cottage built on the beach, stairs and landings built from the house to the beach, and other potential building/carpentry projects. We need someone with building skills as this is an area where we lack technical knowledge.
Our home is a short 5 minute drive to the centre of town, shops, restaurants, pubs, hospital, and theatre.

Learn from living the coastal lifestyle, witnessing wildlife in the garden, deer, raccoons, squirrels, sometime bear, sometime bobcat, and sometime workawayers! The Sunshine Coast offers the wonders of nature with miles of coastal kayaking to enjoy, hikes into the Skookumchuck Rapids viewpoint, venturing up to the mountains of Tetrahedron and Dakota Ridge. There is also world class mountain biking trails on the coast for those that love that sport. There is so much to see and do here.
