    Dear Work-Awayers :-)

    We are a Dutch couple who have lived in Canada for 5 years. We have shared our home with many travellers for the last 10 years in both Australia and in Canada. We have two dogs, a 10 year old Samoyed x retriever boy called Juneau, and an 8 year old Husky x lab girl called Lyla.

    We are seeking help with the following:

    - We have moved to Vancouver Island and have just purchased a home. For this reason we are seeking 2-3 backpackers that are willing to help with the following:

    > Helping load and unload the moving truck on the 16th of June
    > Help clean our new home (its not very dirty but all floors, doors will need to be cleaned)
    > Help set up the home with our furniture/belongings
    >Help with walking the dogs, they both walk very well on the leash together, although Lyla has more energy than Juneau does, Juneau tends to be slower and likes to sniff and Lyla has a bit more spring in her step. Lyla is a rescue and is still needing an experienced dog walker to ensure she doesn't get a chance to react (particularly small dogs or off leash dogs whilst she is on leash)
    > We will be looking to paint some rooms, and ripping out carpet in one room and laying laminate in this. If you have skills that can assist with this that would be awesome but not essential
    > We are looking at extending our deck, in case you are someone that is good with wood work that is great but again not essential.

    You are welcome to stay for two weeks on a work away basis, food and board provided. Other arrangements after that can be discussed. We have hosted many workawayers and travellers for many years and have had great mutual experiences. We are happy to provide you with references from our previous travellers.

    We are a Dutch professional couple no kids, and speak German fluent, French and Italian somewhat and other European languages some sentences here and there :-) Please contact us for more information. We do typically have 1 or 2 video based interviews to ensure we are a good match for each other.

    Here are the aptitudes/attitudes that are required:

    -no signs of being sick (coughing, fever, other flu sign symptoms)
    no smoking at all (very allergic), no drugs and no excessive use of alcohol
    - mutual respect
    -open communication
    Looking forward to hearing from you
    Thanks so much,
    Monique and Ingo

    We do not tolerate any drug or alcohol abuse and our entire property is non-smoking/non vaping. We have a lot of respect for our guests and we require the same. We enjoy showing people around, share meals and stories (lots of travel stories :-) but it is based on mutual respect and reciprocity in helping each other out.
