For 1 week | Short Term

We live on a homestead in Sunshine Bay - 35 minutes outside of Nelson, British Columbia. We have two dogs, one cat, a herd of 17 miniature goats, 9 chickens, 4 ducks and a large seasonal vegetable garden (from May to October).

We live in a large timberframe house with a detached bnb on the property as well.

Russell and I try to get away twice a year for a week or two and would love to have one or two people stay here and care for our beloved pets, farm animals and seasonal garden. Our place is surrounded by beauty wherever you look - fields, mountains and big sky. We are a 5 minute walk to Sunshine Bay Park where there are trails to walk, a lake for swimming, fishing, boating or just to watch the sunset. 

Two things to note: it would be good if you had your own vehicle to get to and from town and....our dates are for when we are away - they don't include the 3 or 4 days of training needed before we leave to feel confident to run the place while we're away - so hopefully you'd feel comfortable staying with us before we departed. 

Please feel free to connect if you are interested in helping us. We can provide references upon request.

Thank you for your interest.
