Area: British ColumbiaWe are recruiting for The summer of 2014! We are needing work aways from Mid May to September, for a 2 week minimum. Thanks to Michael, Martina, Jean-Marc, Flory, Daniel, Lana & Elton for 2012 and 2013! We are Sarah and Peter. We hand built a small rental cabin resort in beautiful British Columbia. It is on the mainland, in the south coast of B.C. It is close to many discovery islands, Stuart Island, Sonora Island and Dent Island. It is a beautiful remote setting, where we are off the grid and reached only by boat, water taxi, or by float plane We opened in the summer of 2012. We have posted our business on the workaway site for 2 years now and we love it! The workers bring new ideas and insight into the project and the guests, love interacting with them. We are only open in the summer months, June- September and host workaways to help us with the many projects and to keep the place running! This place is not for every one. It is in the coastal forest, on the ocean. There is no store community of people or amenities. One must love the isolation and be able to fit into the remote hospitality lifestyle. Peter is a fishing guide and we decided 6 years ago to build our own place. Denham Bay has 4 cabins, which we rent out, an out door kitchen, docks and a live in- work shop. We are minutes from a suburb salmon fishing area and great for exploring.

Area: MunsterHi, I am a new house owner enjoying a wonderful 30 year old house with great lake views. The house has multiple living spaces and I have been working slowly painting and gardening. I share the house with 3 housemates (Bruno and Rowan - border collie dogs and Sid the cat) who are a joy. I am a on the edge of Ennis with a rural feel (beside a lake) but also have easy access to the town centre (20 minute walk). If you like lakes, bringing a dog for walks, enjoy basid gardening (digging, clearing weeds), painting on rainy days then this workaway might suit you. It is a non-smoking house, whose owner is big into geography and ecoprojects.
