  • Description


    We are a blended family of 2 adults and 4 kids ages 5,6,7 & 9! The kids also spend time with their other parents who also live on salt spring. Both Charles and I work outside of the home, I manage a wellness centre and teach yoga and he runs his own excavating business. I will only be working part time this summer but would love to have someone from abroad come and experience life with us this summer. I'm an avid gardener and will have a big veggie garden this year on our new property. We love our life on salt spring and spend tones of time at the lake, paddle boarding and swimming, and we also love boating. If you love kids, want to learn some basic gardening and spend your summer on beautiful salt spring we would love to meet you!

    The most amazing part of Salt spring island is the lakes and hikes and the locals saturday markets. If you like nature this is the place to be. Many crystal clear lakes for swimming and amazing beaches if you're an ocean swimmer. We are definitely a destination for travellers and known almost world wide now for our beauty and uniqueness. In our time off we like to go boating out on the ocean, we will also be doing some camping this summer on the adjacent islands.
    Beautiful landscape and amazing people is how I would describe salt spring!
