    We have a large home, outdoor pool and we are within walking distance to town and the river. Meredythe teaches piano and voice, her husband, Les, is a businessman. We have a large extended family so we have a busy household at times.
    Duncan is about 45 minutes from Victoria and to get here you can fly into Victoria or if you are in Vancouver, you would take a ferry to either Victoria or Naniamo. Beautiful scenic trip to get to the island and so much to explore once you arive.
    Please tell us about yourself including what you are interested in while you are here, what skills you would like to utilize with us and what your English comprehension level is.

    Southern Vancouver Island is home to many diverse cultures and we have abundant multicultural events and attractions. The host, Les, has taught business courses in various industries. Meredythe, was a schoolteacher for 30 years and open to introducing helpers to piano and singing. She still teaches voice and piano lessons and sings in 5 languages. We have a Steinway grand piano in our home for your use. We are involved in Christian Church and are active members of the community. Duncan is known as the totem pole town of the island, with many indigenous displays and cultural events. During the month of July into August, the downtown area comes alive with music and arts. We are open to helping you develop your English skills.

    We are looking for help with landscaping, cleaning, cutting a small lawn, watering our many hanging baskets and gardens, organizing, painting, maintenance for our large (very large) outdoor pool, and cooking. Our kitchen is a very busy focal point in our home and there is music everywhere. We are open to welcoming a lady or two, a man, or married couple into our home. We are new to workaway but had 2 lovely ladies in their twenties visit us from Mexico and absolutley loved having them here. They came for a couple of weeks and stayed for four months. Since they left, we decided to become hosts as we enjoyed the experience immensely. We are happy to help you with your English and interested in learning what you have to offer.

    The Cowichan Valley (where Duncan is located) has something for everyone. We would love to show you around the area, and outlying areas.
    Duncan has much to offer, beaches, forest trails, walking along the river, swimming, hiking, and more.
    We have numerous wineries, marinas and golf courses as well as the vast array of tourist attractions to visit.
