    We are right in the town of cowichan bay. You can walk to the village in 10 minutes with a handful of shops and restaurants coffe shop, convenient store. There is a bus stop close by. We would also be able to drive you places if it works out timing wise.
    we eat meat but not everyday.

    The days off are flexible, does not have to be on the weekend if you want days off. If you want to go somewhere for a few days or a week that is no problem just let us know. Also would be responsible for your own meals if we are eating outside the home.
