Hi I am a 54 year young Gramma and mother of 4 grown children. I sailed through the South Pacific for 6 years chartering and sail training off shore. I am a Nature Nanny taking care of little ones and sharing my love of the natural world. I love sharing my home and boat with fellow travelers. I am super fortunate to have two beautiful homes in Brentwood Bay where I also keep my boat. I live with my partner Geoff who lives just around the corner from my house, Shell Cottage. I love to garden, grow my own food and beautiful flowers. To cultivate, create, refinish and repurpose all sorts of "stuff" to create and maintain a beautiful home and garden. My life's work has been caring for people, animals and "things". I love to share my love of the forest and ocean, garden and LIFE in general. The loves of my life are my 4 beautiful Grandchildren, ok all my family and my dogs! I live in one of the most beautiful places on earth and firmly believe in the renewable resource of eco tourism in British Columbia. I have been sharing my home for over 6 years now and I love it. Yes it helps pay the bills....but aside from that it is very rewarding. Everybody loves the house and the neighbourhood and I get great pleasure out of creating and preparing my home to accomodate my guests. I find people to be very respectful and I have not had any problems to date. Which is what everone asks when I tell people I do holiday rentals in my home! Welcome to Brentwood Bay
