  • Beschreibung


    *We have ever-changing schedules which means it's best to contact us within a few weeks of when you want to stay

    *We host for 1 week to start, and if we get along and you like our projects, you're welcome to stay longer if our schedule permits :)

    We're Jamie and Adam, originally from the UK, we're now living on Vancouver Island in a small village called Youbou with our two dogs. Two years ago we bought our first home to run partially as a holiday rental. The house is in finished condition but our acre of land needs work. We have previously used whilst travelling South America and have had nothing but positive experiences! We've been hosting for 18 months now and having a lot of fun!

    We both work from home and will be busy sometimes so some of the labour may be solitary. We appreciate self-starters :)

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We moved to rural BC for a quieter lifestyle. The benefit of spending time at our place is to relax and take in the views of the lake, and enjoy the hiking/boating/fishing as well as cultural events that the wonderful Cowichan Valley has to offer.

    We enjoy board games and making music together, maybe doing some yoga too <3

  • Arbeit


    Cleaning up our acre of land; this involves:

    - Digging some trenches
    - Hand weeding and laying fabric to smother weeds
    - Shredding mulch and spreading
    - Building small retaining walls
    - Painting
    - Deep cleaning
    - General help around the home
    - Harvesting and splitting wood if needed

    Sometimes the work may be physical and monotonous. We are now in the rainy season and you will be outside getting very wet since most work we can offer is outdoors. We highly recommend bringing some decent rain gear along :)

  • Unterkunft


    We have an apartment suite which you will share with other workawayers from around the world! You will have a private room. You also get your own bathroom and kitchen, and a stunning view of Cowichan Lake! :D

    We ask for 5 hours of work per day and will provide you with some basic vegan breakfast/lunch foods such as oats/potatoes/pasta - you would be expected to supplement this a little. We cook a large evening meal every day.

    Was noch ...

    We live on the side of a mountain so there are some nice walks/hikes around; there's a nice waterfall a short hike from our place and if you're adventurous you can explore new trails on Mt Holmes. Within 30-60 minutes' drive, there is an abundance of hiking, lakes, beaches, and attractions.

    We have a hot tub we often hang out in during our cool valley evenings and a swimming pool for the hot summer days.

    We also have two very energetic dogs! Please only contact us if you are 100% comfortable and enjoy the company of dogs as they will try to lick your face and can be very rambunctious. Please mention the word JONI in your application. This is so we know you have read everything and you know what to expect! :)

    To get around independently there is a local bus service that goes into the town of Lake Cowichan and hitchhiking around here is doable as well.
