    Beschreibung

    We are in our late-60's-early 70’s and live on a ½ acre Just outside of small town (pop 35,000). We are no longer able to do everything ourselves. There are some great plans and projects, but we need help to make them happen.
    We enjoy a tolerant lifestyle with a clothing optional swimming pool which is open from May - September for members of the family and guests.
    Matthew is a retired architect who takes a hands on approach to life, Jane is an experienced gardener with her own style. She loves to cook too. Workaways are totally treated as a part of the family. We are a quiet couple at home, enjoying evenings with a book, playing games or watching British TV shows or documentaries. But we also enjoy getting together with a varied group of friends, and Workaways will always be included in such gatherings!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We like to live well, to enjoy the good things in life, but keep an economic budget, so we can have money to travel! We would like to share some of these ideas and our lifestyle.
    Jane was an English major, so is happy to correct and help understand grammar and language.
    She loves to cook so there are lots of chances to learn, from the basics to fancy. We feel it takes only a little more effort to make life more special or attractive, and we enjoy passing these ideas along, and learning new ideas from workaways.
    We have been hosting for over 9 years and appreciate workaways not just for their help, but for the richness they add to our life.

    Arbeit

    In early spring (March - April) there is always a list of things to be done to get our home and the property ready for summer with maintenance like pool painting, repainting doors, mulching gardens, repairing raccoon damage at the pond etc.
    New projects tend to start in late March - chances are it will be building a 10 x 10 living space (tiny home) with all the facilities of a ‘real’ house.

    Unterkunft

    Our eclectic house is set on a half acre of landscaped gardens. A self contained one-bedroom apartment will be yours. There will be at least one, and usually more, meals taken together as a family every week. Hours expected have been reduced as no daily food provided. Hours can probably be adjusted around a paying job.
    Couple preferred. Long stays are preferred. Mid-March to mid-May would be a good stay.

    TRANSPORT FROM VANCOUVER - E-BUS () RUNS TO WEST KELOWNA FROM VANCOUVER. WE WILL PICK YOU UP IN WEST KELOWNA Greyhound no longer runs in Canada. Penticton also has an airport with direct, but expensive, flights from/to Calgary and Vancouver.

    We like to start work early and finish early so there's lots of time in the afternoon to enjoy, and workaway hours can be figured out around a 'real' job if that is required.

    This is a good area to walk, hike, kayak and bike, and an excellent climbing area at Skaha Bluffs, in addition to the lake and vineyards that make this area so special. We are close to a rail trail -KVR - good to hike or bike.
    There are bikes available for your use if you would like. We are out of town a bit, but it is a very easy walk or bike to downtown.
    Apex is nearby. It is a great ski hill and in summer all the runs become awesome mountain biking and hiking trails. In ski season there challenging runs, cross-country and snow-shoeing trails.
