Loveable cat and house sitter
My husband, Peter, and I have recently moved to Vancouver Island from Ontario. I’m a retired teacher and Peter is a retired managing director who lived in North Yorkshire, U.K. most of his life. We met 17 years ago while walking the Camino to Santiago, Spain. We love our new house and view.
Our Home & Location
On the ground floor of our house we have one ensuite guest bedroom where you would be staying, as well as a den. The second floor is open plan with raised living room, dining room, kitchen and two piece bathroom.
We have a beautiful view high on a hill overlooking Maple Bay with Saltspring Island in the background. There is a pub on the shore about 3/4 km away. Next to us is a maintained trail that goes up the mountain...
The surrounding region is full of vineyards and small farms. Our town, Duncan, is 10 to 15 min. away by car. It is an eclectic town known for a superb collection of totem poles. It has all you would want for shopping from big box stores to local boutiques. It has a wonderful library, performing arts centre and aquadic centre. Every Saturday morning throughout the year there is a large farmers’ market in the downrown. Many say it is the best on the Island.
There are many wonderful walking trails in the area—flat or hilly. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Our wonderful cat, Humphrey is very loving and playful. He goes ourdoors but spends the night indoors. We have little garden other than some drought resistant plants that need minimal care. We have a hot tub which would need some maintenance.
