    We are a family living in Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. We enjoy a variety of outdoor activities including boating, paddle boarding, camping, hiking and biking. The ocean is our backyard and the mountains are at our doorstep, which lets us live a laid back lifestyle in a small coastal community.

    With the ocean and mountains at our doorstep, you will have lots of things to do during your free time! You will have lots of time to explore the beach, a 10min walk from our house or enjoy the oceanfront village of Sechelt where you can shop at local stores, about a 30min walk or short bus ride away. If time permits, We will take you on our boat during your free time and would be more than happy to take you hiking or you can explore trails on your own, with our dog (as we do have bears).

    If you are an active person who loves outdoor activities, you will love spending time here on the Sunshine Coast!

    We do have a very friendly and loving dog so you would have to be comfortable around dogs as she will be in the yard often when you are working.

    How to find us:
    The Sunshine Coast is a short 40min ferry ride from West Vancouver. From Metro Vancouver, you will make your way to Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal by public transit or taxi where you will take the ferry to Langdale on the Sunshine Coast, we will either pick you up on the other side or tell you which bus to take and meet you in Sechelt (depends on our schedule the day you arrive).
