    Description

    Hi!
    We are a vibrant family of four adults and four young adults aged 16-21 - two boys and two girls. We have dogs, cats and sheep are often on our property. We live in a 100 year old house on seven south facing acres in Metchosin BC, just 30 minutes out of Victoria. Gorgeous views and numerous beaches, including clothing optional, and parks surround the area. We operate a yoga studio/ retreat space and offer yoga classes as well as body work. With all the activities, we need some help from open minded, creative individuals who would like to assist in building (restoring an old cabin this year), gardening, painting, weeding, cooking or other skills that you would like to share. We welcome LGBT.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Public transit exisits but can be a challenge in this area. We are close to The Galloping Goose a walk/ bike path which takes you into town, 1.25 hrs by bike. A 1 hr drive takes you North past Sooke which gives access to The Juan de Fuca trail which has many beaches and opportunities to explore Vancouver Islands rugged coast.
