Also spend time hanging out with my three smart and creative daughters (13, 15 & 17) some afternoons while I am at work (but close by) for the Summer months. Like going swimming in our fresh water lakes and ocean beaches, talking about their interest--oldest is writing science fiction novels). And Also help with house keeping, making light meals and clean-up together. And, ideally doing some work reclaiming our overgrown garden.

    As our guest you will have your own private-access bedroom, queen size bed and own bathroom, strong wifi and full use of the kitchen and living areas in our large house. Our property is big and fun/kid friendly. We are located close (10 minute walk) to the main town Ganges, situated around a beautiful harbour where there are: 3 art/craft/organic produce markets/wk; many venues with live music in the evenings and lots of arts, sports and cultural events all summer long. Because of its beauty and creative community, Salt Spring Island is a tourist destination yet is still small enough to be fun, friendly and super safe.
