  • Descripción


    We are a family of 3 teenage girls (17 and 2 - 15 year olds and their mom). We have one small dog, a cat, rabbit, budgie and flock of chickens we lovingly refer to as 'The Ladies'. We love spending time together in our garden, walking our dog, biking, swimming in the lake, making and eating good food, watching movies, quietly reading on our deck while enjoying magnificent views, dancing , doing yoga and laughing. We care deeply about the earth and all her gifts and try to live lightly and with care. We love people and sharing our lives with others who feel similarly. We are open to learning new things, language and culture.

    We are walking distance (minutes from 2 lovely beaches, one of the most popular hiking trails in our area is a 2 minute drive, 15 minute walk from our home, we are close to town which is one of best little art towns in Canada, we have over 60 amazing restaurants plus cafes, pubs and nightclubs. The river/lake is amazing for swimming, fishing, boating of all kinds (rentals available in town) and many outdoor adventures minutes away. It is a small community with a big heart and our neighborhood is a little taste of the greater community.

    We are a family home and mutual respect for each other and our property is high priority. We consider our home and community sacred space and love to share this with others who feel the same.
