    Item Description:

    Our family of 4 is moving to Salt Spring and we’ve just sold our home in Richmond. We need to find housing starting September 1st, and since we haven’t found a home to purchase yet on the Island, we’d like to secure something to rent so that we can be there while we continue to house hunt. We’re eager to put down our roots and weave ourselves into the community before the school year begins.

    Because of our situation, we would ideally like to rent on a month-to-month basis for as long as it takes for us to buy a property. We could sign a 3-month lease if that’s helpful, followed by month-to-month, but wouldn’t want to commit to anything longer. Kid friendly is a must and pet friendly is a huge plus (we have a small dog and a cat). We’re open to most types of housing including a house, cottage, yurt, trailer, or other.

    We consider ourselves a mindful, conscious, curious, and generous family. I am an engineer in clean energy and my wife is a massage and wellness practitioner, who has also worked in academia and for non-profits. We have two small boys (ages 5 and 3) who are full of energy.

    We’re open to adventures and are looking forward to becoming active members of the community. We look forward to meeting you.


    The Porciuncula Skrivan Family
