Energetic capable couple with experience, needed for 51 days, approximate, from Dec 1 - Jan 20, to look after our small farm and animals.  

Beautifully situated on Vancouver Island BC Canada, overlooking Gordon's Beach, Otter Point, 10km along the West Coast Road, from Sooke.   From Victoria -  60 mins - 40 km.

Sunny, private, modern home on small llama farm on 10 forested acres.    Separate suite available for early and late departure.

Magnificent ocean views and sunsets.   5 min walk to a great beachcombing beach.  West coast hiking trails and other beaches close by.     

Good restaurants within driving distance to choose from, for takeout as well.  

No gardening at this time of the year.

Our farm animals include:-

12 Chickens, that are free range.  Let out in morning and locked up at night.  Fed and watered daily.    Once a week cleaning required.

4 Llamas.   One male and three females.  You need to give grain each day and check their hay and water    The females small loafing barn is cleared each day of poop from the night before - easy to do.   Male llama barn no cleaning required.

1 cat.  Female ‘Cady’ who loves attention.   Indoor/Outdoor so no kitty litter, just check her food and water daily.      Recently we were away for two weeks and it was Cady that was pining when we got back, so you have to like cats and be able to give them attention!   She likes to sit on your lap occasionally when watching TV etc and she likes to be brushed.    Your presence in the home is important because of her.

“ One Of Our Favourite Housesits! ”

Sit Dates Nov-8-21 - Nov-23-21 Sitter BlueWorldNomads, Member Since Dec-8-16

Basil and Glenys's llama farm is by far one of our favourite housesits. Glenys and Basil were so welcoming, accommodating and flexible with all the arrangements and we immediately felt right at home.

Their home is beautiful and comfortable with an incredible ocean view - we were lucky enough to see a few whales. Cady the cat is super affectionate and friendly and the llamas are equally cute and irresistible. Even some of the chickens like to get their backs scratched!

The llamas and chickens are very low maintenance and only require about one hour of feeding and cleaning in the morning and a quick head count and egg collection in the evening. The rest of the day can be used to explore the fascinating area and relax on the gorgeous property. We are looking forward to the next opportunity to house and pet sit for Basil and Glenys.
