We will now be accepting people who want to stay for more than a few weeks. Any travelers that wish to stay must have taken the same steps outlined by the government ( two weeks of not traveling). If you have not been traveling and have already been quarantined for a time we could consider taking you in provided you can tell us what steps you take to prevent the transmission of the virus.
Oh and you have to be completely awesome.
Without further ado here is our profile.
I am an adventurer and inventor who knows how to live life.
My work brings me around the world for product inspections as a garment tech, but I also do some graphic design, and product R&D across many fields.
On the island I am known as Zeuss because there are far too many Daves haha.
I love good food, music, and company.
I am passionate, energetic and generally busy but the calm and peacefulness of staring at a fire, sunset or stars and sitting with good food and drink.
I enjoy hard work and feel I am a good patient communicator.
My projects are many on the property from setting up water systems to building sheds , and trails.
My projects on the boat are never ending cleaning and scrubbing to fibreglass and carpentry work to wiring and plumbing. Check out Galiano island and our space from Google earth ;)

On the boat:
There are two sofas, one of which is a comfortable queen sized sofa bed. There may be other options if greater privacy is required.
On the land: There is a trailer/caravan or a tent. There is currently an outdoor composting toilet and an outdoor shower.
If you need extra privacy, I will do my best to accommodate you in a more private setting.
My expectations for my guests will be to be social, help with projects around the property and boat, helping to keep things tidy and clean, I expect a good work ethic and to keep to a schedule.
I am not a slave driver, but love the drive the workaways have given me so far. Thanks to Toots, Kai, Sandra, Kenzo, Antoine, Alex, and all the others ;) . <3
