We are looking for a family to come and stay with us on our acreage on beautiful Quadra island.

We live at the end of a cul-de-sac right by the ocean and 600 acre woodland, a couple of minutes from Quathiaski cove.

We are looking for a young family who would be able to help us a little bit in our garden, less than an hour a day , in exchange for staying in our mobile home, which is independent of our house and has it's own garden etc.

Ideally we'd like a family with kids similar ages to ours (5,4,2) as we live in a beautiful spot, but there aren't too many kids around for our children to play with....
