  • Description


    My partner and I work full time on island and require care for our two kids (ages 7 and 9) during their summer vacation and before/after school. You will have your own separate living quarters that is unattached to our house and has beautiful views of the pacific ocean and the mountains of Vancouver Island. Come and experience island living on the west coast. Best suited for folks who love nature, meeting new people and enjoy a quieter pace of life.

    Come and spend time on a small gulf island off the coast of British Columbia. A close knit community of like minded folks who are passionate about the environment and community. A unique experience to live in a safe, quiet, rural community with views of both the ocean and the mountains. We spend lots of time with friends at the beach, on our paddle boards, attending dances, shows, special events and potlucks. Our workaways will be included as much as they would like to be.

    Autres infos...

    Our gulf island is small (summer population approx. 1100), there are many opportunities to be in nature, with two lakes and numerous beaches within easy access. We can provide bikes and some transportation if necessary. You need to take a ferry to access Vancouver Island and then it is a 20 minute drive to the closest urban area. There are many community events including live music events, festivals and dances/shows. This work away is best suited for folks who are looking to slow down and enjoy nature, meet some cool folks and a enjoy a quieter pace of life.
