We're looking for physically strong Helpers who enjoy landscaping and other outdoor work on our 1/2 acre property. This could include weeding, tidying, painting, cleaning.

We live on the Saanich Peninsula, about one hour (by bus) from downtown Victoria.

The peninsula has lots of outdoor recreation -swimming and kayaking at nearby beaches, cycling and and hiking. John Dean Provincial Park with its beautiful, old growth forest is just up the road from our house.

The waterfront town of Sidney is a ten-minute drive away and Victoria`s most famous attraction - Butchart Gardens - is just 20 minutes away.

There`s a public recreation centre (Panorama Recreation) with indoor and outdoor tennis courts, indoor swimming pool and large weight room/gym a short walk from our house.

We`re a middle-aged, professional couple with no children at home and no pets. Suzanne is a travel writer and also belongs to Servas, an international organization dedicated to building world peace through travel and hosting.

Our home is small but comfortable and strictly non-smoking. We`re happy to lend guests bicycles.

Pictures show some of our yard and garden with outdoor living spaces, as well as our guest bedroom and kitchen. (Note:the guest bedroom how has a Queen-size bed; not the single shown in the photo.)

We can accommodate one or two people at a time.
