Looking for a person who could take on gardening duties (mowing grass, watering, planting) as well as assist with cleaning, doing laundry etc. in a cabin rented out on a short term basis.

If interested, please call Lenka at (250) 246 - 9124 to discuss.




We are soon-to-be new full time residents of Thetis Island. We are also boaters and have arranged winter moorage at the Telegraph harbour marina, but that is not available until October.

We will be moving over to Hollyberry in mid-May and would like to try and find temporary dockspace or perhaps a vacant mooring buoy that we might rent for the month of June at least as we get moved in and organized.

The boat is a 35 foot sailboat that has 6 foot draft, it weighs 12,000 pounds.

Typically we are out cruising most of the summer, but this year with the late move we will not be heading out for so long.

Our contact information:

  • I am looking for a ships wheel to be used on a pirate ship in a preschool playground. (2 would be even better). If someone wants to upgrade the wheel they 're using, I have one to trade. As I started to clean it up, I felt it was too good for a playground - waste for such fine quality. Can anyone help? Thanks. Contact
