NOTICES:

 

Hello Thetis Islanders!

Myself (45) and my two children (10/12) are looking for a serious lifestyle change. We currently live in Parksville, and after experiencing a wonderful mini vacation over there, and hearing from our friends that live there full time how much they enjoy it, would like to spend the next school year and perhaps beyond, living on this gorgeous island.

I am a painter by trade, and can also do minor repairs, basic carpentry, and other work such as yard maintenance, etc.. I am not afraid to try my hand at anything to bring in an income or possibly trade for accommodation, such as house sitting or a place to park an RV for the next school year.

We are quiet and responsible and would treat your property with the utmost respect. I can provide personal references attesting to this and look forward to hearing about any proposals to help make this dream become a reality. I do own a 3 bed/1.5 townhome in downtown Parksville if anyone wants to do a home swap.

Thank you in advance,
Deborah Shorthouse

Looking for cottage/house to rent

We are a recently retired couple in our fifties. We just sold our family home in Winnipeg since our 3 kids moved out and are free to tackle our bucket list. The first item is to attend Bible school together at Capernwray. To make it possible we are looking for a rental home from August 01, 2017 to June 01, 2018. We have been homeowners for the past 35 years therefore we know how to care for a property. We are dependable, non smoking, no pets, very clean and quiet people. Please contact us via email at smjba@shaw.ca or phone Sylvain 204-333-2397 or Martine 204-228-5900
