General description

  • Main home
Hello from Shelley and Gary and the beautiful city of Nelson!

We live in a three bedroom / two story house located six miles from the City of Nelson. The house is architecturally designed but not fancy - which also has a family room / dining room / living room / laundry room / kitchen / three bedrooms upstairs plus two bathrooms - and lots of windows. Our home also has a large verandah and it is situated on just under an acre of flat property. There is another house on the property which has a full time tenant.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • A dog
  • A cat
  • Birds
We have a very friendly dog named Fergus - (Jack Russell terrier) who is eight years old and a very large 20+ lb cat - Henry who would need to be cared for. Our cat is an indoor cat as we seem to have a lot of predators in the area and must not be let out. Our dog is not high maintenance and needs to be taken out to relieve himself and walked on occasion. It would be winter when we would be needing the house sit so no gardening assistance would be required but snow removal would be required in the driveway. We also have a group of crows which we feed twice a day.

There is so much to discover in this beautiful area which we call home. If you google Nelson BC you will see that it is often touted as one of the prettiest cities in Canada.
Nelson is a city located in the Selkirk Mountains on the extreme West Arm of Kootenay Lake in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Canada. Known as "The Queen City", and acknowledged for its impressive collection of restored heritage buildings from its glory days in a regional silver rush,

Unbelievably - there are reportedly over 50 restaurants in the Nelson area ranging from high end award winning wine list restaurants to pubs and lighter fare. There is a movie theatre plus a renovated venue which hosts plays / musicals / and mainstream entertainers.
