Hello wonderful Helpx community:-)

We are a family of 5 living near Victoria on beautiful Vancouver Island. In the past, we have traveled extensively, but we just moved into our dream home, and now with small children we are feeling a need to travel vicariously through others and meet some fabulous people. We have met so many wonderful people through helpx!

Our new home has spectacular views, a hot tub and absolutely amazing hiking trails near by. Sooke is 13 km away, and Victoria is 30 km away. The surrounding area is fantastic - ocean beaches and lakes within a few km, many parks, and a great trail system. We have a resident owl who routinely serenades us. Bus service is available, but limited. Crispin drives into Victoria daily for work, so carpooling could be a option.

Our lovely guest room is very comfortable, and has views across the garden and into the surrounding forest. Laundry and Wifi are available. We would be also open to hosting a family with children. We are honest flexible, non smokers, non drug users and we prefer the same in our guests.

Working schedule is very flexible. We generally expect 5 hours per day of help time. We are looking for honest and self-motivated people.

We are looking for someone to do the various household tasks we would love to but no longer have time for:
- window washing
- painting
- gardening (weeding, watering, planting)
- wood cutting/stacking
- weed whacking/lawn mowing
- light cleaning (dusting, vacuuming etc)
- possibly some childcare or language lessons
- shared cooking
- power washing
- looking after our chickens
and sharing travel stories :-)

Depending on the weather and the week, we might also be traveling up island to a family cabin on Lake Cowichan with kayaks/Canoes or to our condominium at Mt. Washington for skiing or hking.

We are very much looking forward to hearing from you.
