Your hosts, Celia and Nicholas, have been married for 30 years with 2 grown-up kids (living elsewhere); and have been on Salt Spring for 15 years. We opened the art gallery in 2004 and later the b&b, now 3 units - a suite, a cabin and a tent. We are within walking distance of the main village on the island, Ganges, and also have a beach nearby. Our property has lots of big trees and a garden and pond and the house is very comfortable.
We are particularly looking for someone for June July August and September who would like to stay for at least 2 weeks or longer.
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
This is a very good place to learn English and a very nice spot in the summer, lots of outdoor activities and young people.
We are seeking help, mainly, with the bed and breakfast changeovers for 3 units (suite, cabin and tent), preparing the accommodation for new guests. We also need help in the art gallery and some outdoor help in gardening.
English, French, some Spanish
We provide a very comfortable spare room with private bathroom. Salt Spring is an island famous for its good food. We enjoy cooking delicious (and nutritious) meals and sharing with our volunteers.
Salt Spring is a thriving island between Vancouver and Victoria with lots of music, arts and crafts and good food. Also lots of hiking, kayaking, swimming in the ocean and many lakes. There is a good bus system so volunteers can get around without a car. We have a bike available for workawayers.
